    On my Steyr CL II SX that I had a couple years ago- I used a set of low matt finish Leupold QD rings to mimic the look of the SSG 69. The scope was a 4.5-14x Zeiss Conquest side focus mil-dot and the charging handle cleared it fine. Now the charging handle on that rifle was the spoon handle style, not the round knob style they have on others.

    I am considering the Steyr Scout. The only reservation is the bi-pod, all the other features I like.
    Any more, short and lighter carbines catch my eye.
    Being a old time 308win fan, 6.5cm has my interest.
    Thank you for this post.

    I ran a Barrett Fieldcraft briefly. It was nicely put together and very, very light. Still, the Steyr is ridiculously versatile. I actually enjoy the bipod, and it really doesn't add too much for what you get.

    Mine was basically submerged during a rain storm a week or so back so I am going to have to take the action out and check it for rust. I am considering giving it a paint job.

    Let us know how it held up because I believe those have some type of Mannox/Tennifer finish on the barreled action/bolt knob- which is what my CL II SX had.

    Wicked paint job. It takes some balls to hit a new gun like that, but if you got skills, you can do it without regret.

    I’ve looked at those Marlins in 45-70 and been tempted many a times.
