    Il be there in couple hours. Im a big steyr fan for long time. My mother was actually a post ww2 bride from salzburg Austria so im a fan of austrian firearms. Ive had the pleasure of going to the factory in Austria of both Steyr and Glock amazing adventures. Ive been to Glock in Smyra couple times but the Steyr Arms in Bessemer is a wonderland of fine guns for me. Maybe get lucky and puck up deal on writer sample well see.

    I always wanted a Steyr 9mm but somehow never got around to owning one. Then I got messed up with CZs and I dunno if I will ever get that Steyr.

    Wow. Just wow! I've long liked the look of their bolt guns but I'll likely never get one. If I do ever get a Steyr it would be one of the pistols.

    They had some excellent Steyr Prohunters and Merkel MHR 16 bolt guns in both wood or syn stainless or black various calibers ranging from as low as 450 up to say 650 i think that were really nice hunting tools short fast bolt throw and great triggers. So something for all budgets. Or if course you could go full mannlicher for 6 to 12 grand. 20170720_105504.jpg 20170720_111959.jpg

    That's not a bad price at all. Absolutely not to the 6-12k though.

    They had 3 writer sample RFR rifles on rack one of each caliber. The 22lr had a red dot holo on it, the 17 hmr had a ler scope and the 22 mag had no optic. I took the magnum should have bought the 22lr also. I was out the door for 296.00 incuding a spare magazine and some other swag. I really wish id took the 22lr also it was threaded. barrel. My friend bought a Merkel MHR wood stock bolt rifle in 7mm for 400 bucs and one of the M40a1 pistols for 374.00 dollars. Sorry i didnt price any of the AUGs they had alot though like 3 rows of various ones. They did say Austria has sent them brand new tooling for AUGs and pistols. They are starting to manufacture in Alabama this year. Heres a few Augs. I really wanted to take home a PRohunter in 7mm08 i was fondeling awhile and could have bought very good price but i just cant justify anymore deer rifles. Maybe next year.

    Little backstory much of my family is from bessemer were Steyr usa is located. My grandparents born raised there as was father etc... All buried there bessemer was much different back when. Anyhow, there were 3 uniform officers providing security for the open house at door was a metal detector i passed thru and bells rang of course. A very large polite Bessemer officer says in classic bama drawl Do you have a gun ? I said yes sir in my right front pocket. Without reservation he said they dont mind you having gun inside but they dont want any live ammo around all the guns. I said well its def loaded. He said well i can hold it for ya if you want or you can put in car. I took it out keeping it in the nemesis and handed it to him he put in his pocket lol. And we talked guns awhile he was the one who actually told me go check out the little 22s. I had lunch that day at the famous since 1907 bright star cafe were my grandparents atevin the 1920s and my father would go after school. Visited cemetery and old homesite. Emotional rollercoaster day. End result i have a rifle marked with the home of my father in Alabama and my mother from Austria pretty cool.

    Couple more pictures. Made it home early this morning coudnt wait to tinker with the new rifle. I had an unused bipod needing a home. I dont have any spare scopes so i stuck the night scope on it. It actually pretty handy like that i kinda just put it on to shoot couple rounds may leave it awhile. Could make a decent Predator nightstalker. I have zero experience with 22 magnum in a rifle so il have to do some work and study abit. Any first hand experience yall have feel free to send my way. -21083a6cebb65da3.JPG -cd93c41f59d54d59.JPG 20170721_084719.jpg -21083a6cebb65da3.JPG -cd93c41f59d54d59.JPG 20170721_084719.jpg

    How does that bolt work? Is it cammed in some way? Can you show a pic of it open?
