The Pro Hunter III SX features Steyr’s innovative (SBS) Safe Bolt System. This model features a rugged green synthetic buttstock with polymer inlays and aluminum bedding block.
The barrel is cold hammer forged and is well renowned for exceptional accuracy. The rifle features Steyr’s patented Mannox finish which prevents wear and corrosion of the outer metal parts. The Mannox finish is completely impenetrable to damage from rain, moisture, sweat and blood.
Steyr’s SBS system features a unique 3-position roller tang safety conveniently located behind the rear of the bolt. The SBS bolt is equipped with four forward locking lugs that must be rotated 60 degrees in order to unlock the bolt, as well as multiple gas ports. A patented safety bushing offers enhanced protection against unexpected, excessive chamber pressure and escaping gases. Steyr has tested the bushing with high pressure proof rounds at a level of 120,000 psi without any damage to the rifle.
This model also features an innovative 2-stage
magazine release which allows the user to safely close the bolt without
chambering a round when the magazine is indexed to its lowest position
without removing the magazine from the rifle.
