    Well... anything German is usually better than American made. Styer is a very good firearm.

    I had one of the early Pro Hunter models with double set triggers in 30-06. The stock was kind of flimsy but the rifle shot very well.

    I have an SBS Pro Hunter Mountain Stainless 6.5x55. Not a long range rifle really in 6.5x55 with a 20 inch barrel, but extremely accurate. I like the stock, all be it plastic. It fits well and feels good. The gun is light weight and well balanced. I recommend it. At the time I could have gotten anything I wanted, and this was my choice over a Tikka T3 and a Sako. I liked the Tikka but it was longer than I wanted, and the Sako just seemed bulky and was longer as well. This one was more sleek, narrow and like I said, just felt good. It consistently shoots 3/4 inch groups at 200 yards and thats pretty good for a light weight rifle with a short barrel. And it just plain has sexy lines.

    Liltank,

    Make sure that it is a model 2 and not a model 1. The tuppewrware stock of the first really was horrible. You couldn't mount a bipod on the forestock due to it flexing and touching the barrel. This is the only fault to the rifle.

    I have owned an A-bolt and continue to own a Pro-hunter. The Pro hunter is a far superior rifle. I've put almost 1500 rounds through it and it remains very accurate.
