Why do you keep posting on the SSG82? This does not interfere with the topic, nor does it answer any questions of the OP. It is like in a Porsche 911 thread someone keeps posting pictures of a BMW Z4 (maybe even worse, since at least Porsche and BMW are from the same country, what it isn't with the Austrian Steyr-Mannlicher SSG69 and the East German VEB SSG82).

82 wasn't made by Steyr?
a different total design and country of manuf.!
I'm seeing both side x side in my safe. Same hammer forged barrel pattern, same stock pattern and unfinished, etc. Likely they were possibly assembled in E. Germany by FAJAS, but the barrels are Steyr. Maybe Steyr bought stocks from FAJAS? Maybe FAJAS made the simple receiver, but the bulk of the gun is Steyr.

Jesus, that is pure BS. Why don't you research anything before making such weird assumptions.

The SSG82 was based on the Suhler .22 rifle Model 150. The rifle was manufactured by Eastern Germany in their own building which was within the production site of VEB FAJAS. Only special work, such as barrel straighening, had to be outcarried to Suhler rifle makers. This is proofed by Stasi files and listed online by the German Authority responsible for Stasi files: Die geheimen Waffen der Stasi

The simple barrel structure on the outside that is not turned perfectly smooth is just a detail these two rifles share in common. That is all. For what I know Sako also hammer forges barrels, but they later by turning remove the outer barrel structure. Still no one claims they cooperate with Steyr or Eastern Germany, so please stop making stupid assumptions.

If you want to continue discussing on the SSG82 as well then please open an own thread for it, but do not hijack a thread on a very different rifle.

Yes, I did use rude words. However, it is quite annoying to re-read several times persons going heavy off topic and even throwing in very weird and fully wrong thoughts of theirs which are not marked as such which could lead to wrong future references. I guess you got the same reactions when you did this back in 2016, so please also understand why I reacted this way.

[QUOTE="DaveFromSheffield, post: Re "Production Date": the proof date was October 1985, this does not necessarily mean it was made the same month, but supposed close prior to that date.
[/QUOTE]



Thanks Dave .
This one is oct 95 correct? CDM Well by this code sheet if I looking at it correctly. Nice rifle by the way. I saw that post while I was searching information before the auction ended.

I had an SSG69 but not the PII version. Mine had the double set triggers which really made it wonderful to shoot. Like the others said the PII was supposed to be the police sniper version. I do know my rifle with the lighter barrel was very accurate and I imagine the heavier barrel would be as good or better. I hated the magazines which are plastic and tend to break. They're expensive and tough to find as well.

I have an SSG82 which I shoot and as others noted, it has absolutely nothing to do with the SSG69 other than the German term for sharp shooters rifle. Nothing made in Austria or by Steyr, It does use a bolt with lugs at the rear however though its a different setup. Neat rifle but not in the same class as the Steyr.

On several sniper rifle sites the SSG-69 still holds it's own against a lot of newer rifles. It's all about the ammo, not the rifle.

I wouldn't trade mine for any of the new .308 bolt guns out there.

Here are the 2 guns side x side for the experts. You guys do know the 82's were unmarked (other than the scope and serial #) FAJAS GERMANY was marked by the importer, not by FAJAS as you assume. Just because wikepedia says so in your research does not make it so. There are certainly many private label situations. The SSG69 a previous owner added sealer to the stock, otherwise both were unfinished. The textured areas on the stocks are identical in addition to the info previously provided. Yes, I'm sure this SSG69 is not up to par with Davefromsheffield, nor is any further discussion permitted. IMG_8522.JPG IMG_8523.JPG IMG_8524.JPG

Sorry, this was a typo of mine. You are correct, CDM is October 1995 and not 1985 as incorrectly stated by myself.

Here are the 2 guns side x side for the experts. [...] The SSG69 a previous owner added sealer to the stock, otherwise both were unfinished. The textured areas on the stocks are identical in addition to the info previously provided. Yes, I'm sure this SSG69 is not up to par with Davefromsheffield, nor is any further discussion permitted.
The wooden stock as shown with the SSG69 was the stock that was originally issued with the "SSG Match" variant. The stocks are interchangeable, the SSG69 could be ordered with the wooden SSG Match stock as well. The SSG Match had an extra long handle with a black plastic ball on the end and featured a different rail atop the receiver. There were additional stock variants available as well, including an UIT stock and even a brown plastic stock, the UIT stock being visible in this old US ad:

No dave, you didn’t just use rude words...you are rude. You might want to think of yourself as ‘direct’ but you come across a verbal bully. Don’t read something that bothers you, if you chose. You’re not the moderator; you’re a participant. Or if you are feeling your sense of superiority and are bursting your britches to put someone in their place, try, if you are capable to be kind and polite with your criticism. You, however, have gone out of your way to personalize your comments re my postings to a point where you, with absolurte ignorance of any facts baselessly guess at the reason why I have not participated in this bd for 5 years. you know nothing.

Life too short to short cut politeness for the sake of already knowing, it stifles Many themes, subjects repeat for some it‘s brand new info?
a little overwhelming for all ready in the know experts...not for us learning, relearning, or a little confused, mis lead by ads, authors or unprofessional attitudes cutting short the discussion that may enlighten me, others interested in even the re-hashing....?
none here sins enough to bring negativity into any discussion Unless “faking facts” which is different than this...
Misplaced comments angers gone source has ruined sites, discussions here on boards...going unchecked at times..its toxic ....people quit posting, leave, or reserve info afraid to be reticule .....
im not mod. ...I’m interested in both guns spoken about .....
