    Lust for Styer "Scout"

    A local store has a Styer Scout, straight pull rifle priced at $400.

    I fondled it, worked the action, Nice.

    Marveled at the huge klunky safety, umm, it's not a leaver, or a button, fixture?

    But with finger in the trigger guard seems OK.

    "Scout" is a loosely applied term, my understanding from Jeff Cooper, was first, easy to carry, you could wrap your hand around the rifle at it's balance point and carry it. Does not apply to this rifle.

    It has a large 10 round magazine hanging there.

    Can't find a price for a spare mag, but suspect by the time shipping is covered you could have bought a very serviceable Marlin rifle.

    The top of the stock forend has a picatinny rail molded into it, maybe that's stable enough to mount a sight. But I have doubts. A rail can also be mounted on the receiver, for conventional sight mounting.

    Despite having several fine .22s I lust for this rifle.

    Well NUTS!! Now I'm on another mission. Just came back from one after finding a Beretta Olympia and you have to come up with this. A pox on thee!!

    Oh well, I guess it's good to always have goals.
    There are 550 million arms in worldwide circulation. This is 1 firearm for every 12 people on the planet. The only question is , HOW DO WE ARM THE OTHER !!? The Lord of War.

    If I recall correctly this is manufactured by another firm that also sells the product. Look on www.rimfirecentral.com for more info and reviews before spending your money. Or here is a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqYkNvyZ0JQ .

    I am a fan of Styer manufactured rifles both current and old.

    Interesting. I was just looking at "Rimfire Rifle Review: Steyr Scout RFR" on Outdoor Hub and it is exactly the opposite of the youtube fellow's experience. It seems this may be a "catch as catch can" sort of situation. I'm still hot on the trail and it seems cdnn has them and at a rather attractive price. Just need to check it out a bit more since until the op I didn't know such a thing existed.

    OK. Consider yourself unpoxed.
