Steyr announced their SSG Carbon rifle back at SHOT in 2014, but the orders came pouring in and they were backlogged for over a year. Finally they have gotten caught up and there will be rifles available in the USA. The SSG Carbon uses the same barreled action from the SSG08 chambered in 308 with a 20 or 22.4″ barrel and the uses a carbon fiber stock to complete the rifle. The fully adjustable stock does not use woven carbon fiber fabric, but rather uses “chipped” carbon much like Formula 1 cars do. Carbon fiber is light weight, but even so, these rifles are not lite, weighing in at over 11 pounds for just the rifle, which is about normal for a sniper rifle. They look good and Steyr’s typically shoot very well. List price is about $3700 USD
