Steyr Arms is a firearms manufacturer based in Sankt Peter in der Au, Austria. Originally part of Steyr-Daimler-Puch, it became independent when the conglomerate was broken up in 1989. Prior to 1 January 2019, the company was named Steyr Mannlicher AG.

The SSG M1 bolt action model replaces the old predecessor SSG 08 in Steyr ranks and is clearly targeted at the military and law enforcement customer but with options for civilian markets in some countries for the purpose of the competition.
