The SSG 69 (Scharfschützengewehr 69) is a bolt-action sniper rifle produced by Steyr Mannlicher and serves as the standard sniper rifle for the Austrian Army.

Adopted in 1969 (hence the designation), it was ahead of its time with the use of synthetics and cold-hammer forged barrels for accuracy.

There are several variants made with mostly cosmetic differences, the only anomaly being the SSG-PIV using a 409 mm barrel with a 1-10 twist designed to handle heavy subsonic ammunition.
