EAW Steel Picatinny rail, Steyr Mannlicher S, Jagdmatch L/SL, SBS 96 S Details


Picatinny rail consists of slots with 5.23 mm spaces between one another, which means that it can be used across its entire length. It is simple to mount and interchangeable – if something is made for a Picatinny rail, it will fit regardless of the manufacturer or manufacturing date. It is affordable, resilient and reliable – this is why it so commonly used by professionals and military. Because of all its great qualities, Picatinny rail has been dominating the rail market in the recent years.

Picatinny is a big step forward from the Weaver standard. Weaver has a few predesignated slots while Picatinny has slots all over its surface, allowing the device to be mounted wherever the user finds it fitting. Weaver's slot is 3.8 mm wide, which is why ring mounts made for a Weaver rail will also fit on a Picatinny rail while ring mounts made specifically for a Picatinny rail will not fit on a Weaver rail. This is one of the main reasons why Picatinny is a far better mounting solution.

EAW is a German company, known for producing top-quality mounts. Their Picatinny rails, which are all made from steel, have a nice finish and come with a unique channel in the middle, allowing the user to clearly see the rifle's sights. Screws are included. EAW chooses only the best materials for their products. All of these great features; however, come at quite a steep price.

About the rifle

Steyr Mannlicher S is a bolt action rifle. S stands for „Schwer“ which means heavy. The rifle was first introduced in 1970. It was chambered for 6.5x68, 7mm Rem. Mag., .300 Win. Mag., 8x68S, .375 H&H Mag., .338 Win. Mag., .300 H&H Mag. and 9.3x64 mm. This rifle's receiver, which is very long, is designed so that it can withstand the recoil of the strongest calibers out there. The rifle is 110 cm long and weighs 3.8 kg. There are four mounting holes on the receiver for mounting purposes – 2 at the front and two at the rear.

There are two EAW Picatinny rails available for rifles Mannlicher S, Jagdmatch L/SL. To determine which rail is the right one for you, measure the distance between the inner holes (B distance, seen on the image below). This Picatinny rail is suitable for the ones with B distance of 104.7 mm.

This Picatinny rail will also fit Steyr SBS 96 S with B distance of 104.7 mm.

Mounting instructions

Remove all the stains (grease, oil etc.) from the rifle's receiver with a cleaning fluid (acetone). Once the surface is clean and dry, check whether the screws match the rail and the holes on the receiver. Make sure that the Picatinny rail is compatible with the rifle by inspecting the mounting holes on both. Before mounting the rail permanently, apply a minimal amount of thread-locking fluid 278 or 648 on screws and contact surfaces. Be careful not to get the fluid in or near the mounting holes. Carefully clean the remaining excess fluid around the rail with a cleaning fluid. Using a torque driver, screw the screws appropriately (up to 2.2 Nm) – do not overtighten.


The product has a warranty period of 30 years.
