Steyr’s Hot New Mountain-Ready Carbon CL II Rifle

Published

What do you need most in a big-game gun?

Steyr recently introduced a brand-new big-game gun, the Carbon CL II rifle, and they clearly designed it around the needs of big-game hunters who aren’t afraid to go way, way off the beaten path in pursuit of the toughest-to-reach game animals. We’re not necessarily saying the Carbon CL II was purpose-built for sheep hunters who must take 400+-yard shots after having climbed a mountain…but if it was, they couldn’t have done a better job.

First, they ensured that this rifle is feather-light. Weighing in between 6.7 and 7.7 pounds, depending on caliber choice, the Carbon CL II has none of the extra weight that, as any sheep hunter can tell you, multiplies by orders of magnitude for every quarter-mile you ascend. Of course, this was done with carbon fiber…but this isn’t just any carbon fiber. It’s a “quiet” carbon fiber with the same acoustic properties as a wooden stock, so it won’t make that wince-inducing “whack” every time you accidentally brush against a tree.

Secondly, they chambered it in three calibers, all of which are designed for exceptional accuracy at 400 yards (and more). Available in .308 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor, and .338 Lap. Mag., these rifles would be just as at home on the 1,000-yard range as they are on a mountaintop.

Last but (definitely) not least, these rifles offer the new Steyr FlexSight, which has a special thread that allows you to switch from open sights to a silencer or muzzle brake without any tools. This is the first open sight that can be changed and also easily returned to the exact same position.
