Weapons Wednesday: The Great Steyr Scout Getting More Affordable?

Almost $600 less.  Watch the video, it’s full of nifty things. *I* have been there, in that room, the armory at the Sconce, indeed with LtCol Cooper himself, one-on-one. I have beheld and held that rifle.

I also have my own Scout rifle, as after long thought and study on the subject I accepted the concept and took the plunge in 2002. Yes, I paid about $2100, but it was (and is) worth every penny. (So was the 270 Course at Gunsite a year later!)

I’ve been harping a long time now on this forum and the old place about securing your arms and ammunition NOW, with a necessary emphasis on a quality AR rifle and its associated gear. I will now add a strong recommendation to acquire a solid 30-caliber rifle for hunting and other work. The Steyr Scout is the one you want.

Cheaper than ever, too. (Be sure to get to Jeff Cooper package, it’s ready to go right out of the box.)
