    Steyr Rolls Out Big Bores With Promotional Pricing on HS .50 and HS .460

    TRUSSVILLE, ALABAMA -Steyr Arms has drastically reduced the price of its big-bore ultra-long-range HS .50 and HS .460 rifles to $3,995 for the entire month of April-or while supplies last. This special promotional sale represents a savings of nearly 25 percent off the suggested retail of $5,299 for HS .50 and HS .460 rifles.

    Available in either .50 BMG or .460 Steyr chamberings, the smooth-cycling, single-shot, bolt-action HS platform features a 33-inch cold-hammer-forged and fluted barrel that provides unparalleled accuracy and ensures supersonic velocity at distances beyond 1,500 meters with most match ammunition. A highly efficient, three-chamber muzzle brake tames felt recoil. The barrel is fully free-floated above the rigid aluminum stock. A beefy two-lug bolt locks into the barrel block, which mates the barrel to the stock via two action screws. This configuration provides for quick and easy disassembly for cleaning and transportation. A 20-MOA declination Picatinny rail is attached to the barrel block, so the scope remains attached to the rifle when disassembled to prevent loss of zero. Maintenance is easy due to a low parts count.

    The HS rifle has a two-stage direct trigger, and it utilizes a standard AR-style pistol grip. The rifle comes complete with a heavy-duty adjustable bipod that pivots on a Versa-Pod-style post. Purpose-built scope mounts are available from Steyr Arms in 1-inch, 30 mm and 34 mm sizes.

    To take advantage of this incredible offer, visit your Steyr Authorized Dealer, or call Steyr Arms at (205) 655-8299. You can find your nearest Steyr Authorized Dealer by entering your zip code at Steyr Mannlicher US:*Dealers.

    So? The .460 is a proprietary round, mated with a rifle that weighs 28.5 pounds and the barrel is cold hammer forged? All for $5K and I still get to buy ammo and optics??


    I am going to pass and build my own. But. I have that luxury. :cool:
