    I own a Steyr 96 SBS in 308 Win. caliber. I am considering a re-barrel for a different caliber. Does anybody out there know what the thread pattern is for the receiver/barrel?
    (Example: 3/4" x 18 tpi -- or 25 mm x 10 threads per cm --metric?) Also, besides the magazine, can I replace just the bolt face, or does the entire bolt have to be replaced? Thanks much!

    It would depend on the caliber you want...as far as replacing the bolt versus replacing the bolt head. Steyr's are made in Austria, so think in terms of metric. When in doubt, call and speak to Jack at SAI.
