Steyr Arms has announced that it has expanded its Scout Rifle line with the introduction of OD Green and "MUD" stock variants, both of which are available now. Steyr has also announced an across-the-board reduction to the suggest retail price of its Scout Rifle offerings.

Steyr's OD Green was first used more than 40 years ago on the SSG 69 tactical rifle. OD Green was rebooted last month with the introduction of the AUG A3 M1 rifle, and it is now available as a standard stock-color option for the Scout. The new MUD color offering is similar to the familiar field dark earth color, and it also now available on the Scout Rifle.

Steyr is now offering a lower retail price of $1,699 for a Black, Gray, OD Green or MUD Scout Rifle in .308 Win. And now through the end the year, the company is offering an additional $200 savings, making a new .308 Scout Rifle just $1,499.
