Those Who Dared To Dream

Many people contributed to the general concept of the scout rifle. Below are photos of some of the people involved in bringing the Steyr Scout Rifle to fruition. Please note that there are 6 moderately large jpg files on this page to provide good quality pictures. They may take a while to download if you have a slow connection, (MS FrontPage says 66 seconds at 28.8) but it is worth the wait.

This page is best viewed full screen at a screen resolution of 800 x 600 and 256 or higher color level.
