I have one of the early Steyr SBS Tacticals from 1999. The action and trigger are glass smooth and as good as any of my custom guns. It is very accurate as well. The only negative is the bolt lift requires deliberate force as the design has a shoulder ramp that makes it pretty difficult.

I have a green scout with a Swarovski 1.5x4.5 on it. It is the perfectly balanced rifle. I really like it. I almost never shoot my HK 308 since I got this.

^How is the recoil to you, since the Steyr Scout is pretty light weight?

I have no issues with the recoil. To me, it shoots mild as compared to the Ruger Scout. I think the stock very well designed.

I took it out today, and I have a bit to think about regarding optics. I have a fixed 2x long eye relief scope on it, and it's very fast out to 200 yards. However, it's hard to place shots on small targets because, without magnification, I just can't see. I'm thinking of getting a 2-10x for greater precision.

Have you seen the new leupold scout scopes that are 1.5-5 magnification?

Getting ready to purchase a new scout this week, as want to use it for deer season this year now that .308 is authorized.

Still debating though stock color. Mud, olive drab, black or grey. Leaning towards OD.

I think it's my favorite rifle. I do like my full-size SBS as it's super accurate and light. I do keep the scout rifle in my truck along with a small sling pack with 60 rounds, a trauma kit, and binos.
Mine is OD with the 10 round magazine adapter.
A guy I know had his rig robbed of some valuable guns, so I got this for my truck I feel a lot more confident keeping the rifle in a steel box under lock and key.
