The Steyr THB is one of our most popular precision rifles available in both .308 Winchester and 6.5 Creedmoor. As with all Steyr bolt-action rifles, we guarantee sub-MOA or less. The Steyr THB (Tactical Heavy Barrel) brings the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge to the platform for long-range shooters and competitors.
The .308 Win. comes standard with a black synthetic stock. Both standard stocks include removable spacers for an adjustable length of pull. The .308 Win. has a cold-hammer forged barrel lengths available in options of 16”, 20”, or 26” with Mannox finish and a twist rate of 1:12. All barrel lengths come with 5/8×24 right-hand thread and a 20MOA Picatinny rail. Long Picatinny rail options and additional stock options are also available. The barrel retains Steyr’s signature swirl pattern, which is a unique and attractive byproduct of the hammer forging process. The muzzles of each barrel are threaded to accept muzzle brakes or suppressors with a 5/8×24 RH thread pitch, and a thread protector is included. The THB measures 45.6 inches overall and it weighs 9.3 pounds, empty. It comes standard with a round tactical bolt handle, but Steyr’s slim “butter-knife” bolt handle is also available from the factory.
As with other high-performance rifles offered by Steyr, the THB features the Safe Bolt System (SBS) bolt-action receiver perfectly mated to a heavy profile with its unique 2+1 safety system that offers 3 settings operated by a wheel switch on the tang of the stock. The fire mode (safety off) is indicated by a red dot; the first level of safe mode disables the firing mechanism and the second level of safe serves to lock the bolt down against the stock and also features a press-to-release tab that locks the SBS switch in the safe position. With it’s match-quality single-stage trigger system, the THB barreled-action is virtually identical to that of Steyr’s high-end, long-range tactical rifles.
The THB is fed via Steyr’s proprietary 5-round, double-stack, polymer magazine, which features a 2-stage magazine securing mechanism. The first stage locks the magazine in but allows the bolt to be operated while not engaging and chambering the rounds in the magazine, thereby providing the operator with the option of loading individual rounds by hand while maintaining a full magazine at the ready. One more tap to the bottom of the magazine then seats it in the second stage making it ready for auto-loading. An optional 10-round magazine and adapter kit is also available.
As with all Steyr center-fire bolt-action rifles, the Steyr THB is part of the Steyr Elite Experience that provides the purchaser an unconditional 1 MOA guarantee and a limited lifetime warranty.
