The @Steyrmannlicher-rifles SSG 69 was an early trend-setting sniper rifle in many different ways. While not all design elements were copied for later rifles, it’s wide use of polymers, short bolt throw design, detachable polymer magazines and adjustable length of pull are staple and expected features for most precision sniper rifles in 2023.
In many ways, the world had not paid attention to the fore-runner of sniper rifle technologies encapsulated in the SSG 69, but how would it perform on our course? We find out.
