    I saw this Steyr Forum and thought a few pictures on mine would be welcome here!
    This is not a rifle that adds up to a precision shooter like a long barreled heavy high glass-powered sniper type but I would beg to differ!

    A very nice rifle but hardly a "classic" much to modern.

    classic (adj) : of the first or highest quality, class, or rank

    I'd say it qualifies. It certainly is a classic style.

    that almost identical model has been around since the mid 50's, that makes it a classic to me! lol

    Try about the early 70's . I have owned a few MS carbines over the years. MCA's and M1961's and they were of the original design with the Mannlicher butterknife bolt handle and the rotary magazine.
    When they went to the Mauser type bolt and spiral forged barrels I just have trouble thinking of them as "classics". They are nice guns though.
