    Steyr is the city in the Austria that host former state-owned rifle factory, which is famous for making Mannlicher and Mauser-type rifles for both world wars. Now the Steyr-Mannlicher arms factory is a part of the industrial conglomerate Steyr-Daimler-Puch, and it makes hunting rifles under "Mannlicher" trade marks, and "military" / defensive weapons under trade mark "Steyr" (pistols, sniper rifles, assault rifles - the AUG series)

    There are some amazing gunmakers in Austria; at the last IWA show I went to, I saw some beautiful rifles made by Johann Fanzoj ( http://www.fanzoj.com ), and, if you want something REALLY unusual (like a side-by-side bolt-action), check out Gerhard Fuchs' Fine Guns ( http://www.jagdwaffe.com ).

    Nice, very nice. Thanks for the links.

    Aw, what the heck. One more time, Peter Hofer's Hummingbird double rifle.
    Only 2.2 pounds.

    Steyr is also the company that has supplied arms/weapons to Iran, and used
    against American and Allied forces in Iraq and Afaganistan. I will never, ever
    own one of their weapons~! ;):D

    Now, down to important, it's that time of the year stuff.

    I'm Austrian by immediate descent, and I've built a few guns.

    Does that count?

    Didn't you Americans sell weapons to Iran some years ago yourself? 1987? Or even Afghanistan in the "Soviet-Afghan" war? Hyp...Never mind.

    Yep. And a whole lot of others. One of the problems with "Sleeping with the enemy" is the sleeping is sometimes done before he's the enemy.
