    just picked up a Steyr SBS in 223. Blue Synthetic with 20 in barrel. like new no box. $550.00 Cannot find this model identified. apparently CDNN did not have any of these at the sell off. It is not marked mountain rifle. ?? It shoots great. I fired some reloads in it. 69 grain .505 and .489 Winchester factory 55 grain Bt shot .289 for 3 shot group. Any info appreciated. Elmer.

    P. S. I am considering a Meopta 6x fixed scope for this one. Also one of the IOR fixed power. any suggestions appreciated.

    Why a 6x scope? I have an IOR scope with the MP8 reticle and it's very clear and bright. I don't have a Meopta, but many folks like them for a hunting scope.

    scope choice

    I like fixed power scopes and have an IOR 3 x on my AR. I feel that 6 x with a bullet drop ranging scale would be ideal for a short barrel 223 bolt gun.
