    That's one purdy exotic! Damn sure is a WILD trigger assembly! Congrats! :) I'd say either you had one heckuva tool box, or the trader wasn't so sure about what he had!

    Question on Steyr 338

    By any chance is this rifle the one I saw at a Kingston Pike Pawn shop the first of August 2010 with a broken stock with a brass rod through the wrist? It looks similar. The pawn shop manager would not sell it to me even though I am FFL dealer from Colorado and had my license. He said it was against the store policy to transfer to another dealer. I thought that was strange. The caliber is a good one for elk out here though a bit big for whitetail deer in East Tennessee.

    That is pretty cool!!

    Nice find.

    If it shoots worth a damn that would make a great elk (or anything else delicious) rifle.

    ..always wanted to try a 275gr bullet at sedate velocity as a whitetail gun. Shots are pretty close around here.

    I have a Steyr SSG 69 PII in .308, shoots really well. The spiral marks on the barrel are from the rotary hammer forging when the barrel was rifled/chambered/formed. This process involves placing a gun-drilled blank over a mandrel with an inverse pattern of the rifling and chamber, and then using a rotary hammer to cold hammer forge the barrels rifling and exterior contour. Makes for a really tough barrel. Also leaves the marks you see on the outside of the barrel.

    Enjoy your new to you rifle, just be careful with the rotary magazine, they can be delicate if dropped on the deck with a full load of ammo.
