    Where have all the 376 Prohunter Mountain models gone? Anyone know where to go? I see that Wally World carries Steyr now (there's no place like America!) but fail to see this model in inventory. Please help.

    AFAIK, there is no 376 Pro Hunter - in fact, it appears that only Scouts are chambered in 376.

    Interesting... because it's not listed on Steyr's own site...

    It has probably been discontinued, and thus the scarcity. I did see a Las Vegas Bass Pro fine gun listing one sold at $1399. That's getting a little too precious for me, but I can't afford a safari either, so I don't need it :wink: If it has been discontinued, it means ammunition might be a problem in the future. Another problem with older Prohunters-- the bolt lift was rather stiff, making it hard to get a smooth second shot. They can be retrofitted with the newer cams-- see http://www.frfrogspad.com for a discussion about this. It is listed under his Steyr Scout pages, but it applies to all older SBS Prohunters. I had him do two of my Prohunters, and the transformation was remakable. Hope all this helps.

    Thanks all- Alagator. Real Gold actually has one listed on their site for 679!! Will give a call after Independence Day and see if it is in stock. (Ok calm down now- it's too good to be true).

    The gun is real. I have mine. It feels so great in the hands I had to buy it even though I have the 367 Scout and love it as well. I saw ONE Mountain gun at the Valey Forge gun show but I can't remember the dealers name. You could try e mailing MFLECHER@stonehenge.org He hooked me up with mine and he had one more for sale but that was a wile ago. Mention uncowboy as the one who sent you. Good luck. J.Michael

    If you really want to have one why not contact STEYR ARMS INC in Georgia?
    Try http://www.steyrarms.com - I'm pretty sure that they can "special order" one from Austria.

    376 Steyr

    Well lets hear from some other shooters of this fine caliber.
    The new Ruger 375 is a little better but requires a longer action. For me I will stick to the Scout and Mountain Rifle.
    I don't think the critters I shoot with the 376 Steyr are going to notice it lacks 100-200FPS . J.Michael

    I have a ProHunter Mountain in .376 Steyr as well as .308. I love them. I took a Black Bear in Nova Scotia this year with them.

    I am looking for a Tactical one piece rail for my .376 Steyr for a scope mount.. CDNN used to sell them, does anyone have one they want to sell or know where i can buy one? hogblom@gmail.com

    I am using Trijicon Accupoint Scopes on my rifles, I have to say it is a nice combo.

    i would check the for sale on this board. theres one there w/ dies ammo and brass cheap...

    as for the 25 MOA rail the was sold at CDNN, its nice but too high for you to use the irons with scope off.
