  • SSG 04-A1

The SSG 04 A1 replaces the standard Picatinny rail with a shroud that is attached to the receiver and covers the barrel for the length of the forend. The shroud is topped with a full-length Picatinny rail, and two short rail segments are attached on the side of the shroud for mounting of accessories such as lights or lasers.

The Steyr SSG 04 is a manually operated bolt-action rifle that offers an excellent choice to the long-range shooter or tactical operator in law enforcement or security applications. Available in .308 Winchester, this platform provides high-precision performance and proven reliability.

As in other Steyr high-performance bolt-action rifles, the SSG 04 is built on the Safe Bolt System (SBS) action with a unique 2+1 safety function that offers three settings operated by a wheel switch on the tang of the stock. The FIRE mode (safety off) is indicated by a red dot, and the first level of SAFE mode disables the firing mechanism while allowing the bolt to be cycled. The second SAFE position locks the bolt, at which point the bolt can be pushed down against the stock, locking the firing pin and firing mechanism out of firing position, allowing safe transportation with a round in the chamber. Simply pressing the safety’s release tab and rolling it forward returns the bolt to either the SAFE or the FIRE position. The receiver is topped with a Picatinny rail for optics mounting.

Another feature in the SSG 04 is the 2-stage magazine securing mechanism that uses a first stage to lock the magazine in but allows the bolt to be operated without feeding rounds in the magazine, thereby providing the user with the options of dry-firing or loading individual rounds by hand while maintaining a full magazine at the ready. Simply pressing up on the bottom of the magazine seats it in the second stage, which is ready for auto-loading.

Customer Reviews

It's worth the money Review by Sir Phill
I bought this SSG 04-A1 in the 308win early 2017 and added it to the other members of my Steyr collection.

This is extremely accurate piece of equipment even with good quality factory ammo.

It holds an impressive 10 shot M.O.A group at 100 Yards (with good factory loads) and 10 shot Sub M.OA at 100 Yards with 168gr hand loads.

This thing is a Tac Driver and lots fun too. (Posted on 1/19/2018)
Steyr you really can count on it Review by Christian
I'm happy with my purchase. The gun is amazingly accurate and has a high quality. Absolutely nothing I regret. Certainly, it costs more than some others, but you get what you pay for. (Posted on 10/31/2017)
