The Sporting Rifle
No other manufacturer has better supported and supplied the shooting sports than STI, and now with the introduction of their new sporting rifles they are catering to a whole new class of shooters. STI’s legendary reputation for reliability and accuracy is well represented by this rifle, and shooters everywhere will quickly realize the advantage it gives them.
Chambered in .223 Remington or 5.56mm NATO (depending on customer and application), the 16″ 410 SS barrel features a 1:8 twist with a mid-length gas system. Featuring a Nordic Tactical Compensator and JP Trigger group, what really sets this rifle apart from the rest of the pack is the custom STI Valkyrie hand guard and gas block. The Sporting Rifle has M4 feed ramps for improved feed reliability and a mid-length gas block to reduce recoil.
The hand guard is predrilled and tapped on the top and bottom with 1″ hole spacing to accept JP rails and features slots (both cosmetic and functional) with 1/2″ centers which allows the customer to use T-nuts to mount add-on side mounted rails at virtually any angle. The exclusive STI Valkyrie Tactical gas block features cosmetic design cuts to better match the STI hand guard and sports a Picatinny rail on the top.
The unique STI Valkyrie Competition hand guard has all the same great features as the Tactical model, with a 12″ OA length for increased stability for the competitive Shooter. The STI Valkyrie Competition Gas Block is light weight and concealed under the hand guard. The entire rifle has an Anodized finish with black Teflon coating to provide a durable, attractive finish that will hold up to even the most demanding shooting. And best of all, it’s covered by STI International’s unrivaled warranty and customer service.
No 5.56mm NATO round will be sold nor shipped internationally with the exception of military or law enforcement purchases and only with proper documentation and approval from the State Department. All exported rifles will be supplied in .223 Remington and will include permanently attached compensators per US State Department regulations.
