The SSG24 in action
The SSG24 stock is made from glass fiber reinforced polymer – just like the stock from the real M24. Due to the material thickness of 7 mm the rifle stock is extremely durable with no flex at all. To eliminate outer barrel wobble, an additional steel screw (bipod stud) in front of the rifle connects the outer barrel to the stock.
With the M24 style stock adjustment, you can fit the Novritsch SSG24 to the length of your arms. The two sling swivel attachment points and the bipod mount are made of steel and countered with steel nuts on the inside of the stock. The metal trigger guard is enlarged to allow gun manipulation with gloves on.
The entire receiver is made of metal and has it’s individual Novritsch SSG24 serial number. The receiver contains two POM glide rings which ensure a smooth and easy bolt pull. The extended Picatinny rail on top is mounted with four steel screws to the receiver. Underneath the front screw of the rail sits a threaded screw which ensures that the outer barrel can’t turn.
The drill fluted outer barrel is CNC machined from a 4 mm thick aluminum pipe. No matter how often you fall with this gun, you won’t be able to bend or break any of the parts. The CNC machined end-cap has an O-ring insert to stabilize the inner barrel. An additional steel screw (bipod stud) ensures that there’s no play between stock and outer barrel.
The black oxidized steel cylinder shaft is pinned with three spring pins onto the base of the bolt handle. This, combined with the hard anodized aluminum cylinder head makes for a durable base to compress air. A rubber pad on the cylinder head helps to reduce noise and impact vibrations of the shot. The length of the nozzle is optimized for perfect BB placement inside the hop up bucking, which results in a repeatable and consistent BB backspin.
The spring guide is made of polished stainless steel. The high-speed piston is made of many different materials to provide the best piston characteristics possible. The rubber seal cap is for perfect seal + impact absorption. The lightweight aluminum shaft is for fast acceleration. The POM glide ring allows for smooth action and finally the hardened steel piston base for durability. All cylinder components can easily handle springs up to M190. The SSG24 springs are made from German pianowire springsteel which allows easy compression and fast return.
2 stage trigger
For maximum control of your shot, the SSG24 comes with a 2 stage, 90° trigger.
First Stage: Adjustable and extremely lightweight trigger travel. Pull the trigger back until you can feel the resistance increase to the second stage.
Second stage: The trigger weight increases but it’s very short and crisp. You will be able to feel exactly when the shot will break.
Both the trigger and the piston sear are made of hardened double heat-treated steel. Due to the extreme hardness of these parts the SSG24 trigger box can easily handle springs up to M190 / (650 fps w/ 0.2g BBs).
Spring Guide Stopper
The spring guide stopper is made of hardened steel. It’s designed in a way that applies constant pressure on the base of the cylinder. This means that the cylinder is always in the exact same place. No play of the cylinder results in consistent nozzle placement in the hop up bucking. Therefore the BB backspin of the SSG24 is extremely consistent and repeatable.
The hop-up adjuster of the Novritsch SSG24 is easily accessible from the outside. There are no tools needed, which makes fine adjustments in the field an easy task. The adjustment assembly is on both sides of the chamber to avoid side hop effects. The hop-up arm is CNC machined from aluminium to ensure that there is little tolerance and no play or flex. The contact points of the hop-up arm are shaped to the Hopup rubber for equal pressure on the BB.
The hop-up is made of a soft silicone with an extremely high friction coefficient. It sits tightly inside of the hop-up chamber which provides a 100% seal. When you close the inner barrel with your finger and pull the trigger, the piston will stop before hitting the cylinder head due to the perfect air seal.
The surface of the 475mm long 6.01mm inner barrel is hard oxidized to increase the surface hardness to a point where it won’t wear anymore. It’s straightness and inner diameter get measured individually before it finds its place in the SSG24. Additionally, the barrel is stabilized through a barrel spacer in the middle of the outer barrel and an o-ring in the endcap of the outer barrel.
The SSG24 magazine can hold 28 BBs. Due to its transparent plastic, you can keep track of how many BBs you have left in your gun. The combination of the side guides and the spring mechanism ensures that the reloads are smooth. The top part of the magazine with the feeding lips is separated from the main body of the magazine and presses itself into the hop-up chamber with the follower spring.
The SSG24 comes in a slick black hardshell case with four locking points. The foam inserts will keep your SSG24 safe when you are traveling to game sites either with your car or on the plane. The manual of the gun contains a link to exclusive video guides on how to adjust, clean, maintain and get the best performance out of your Novritsch SSG24 sniper rifle. Also, included is a bottle of Novritsch Sniper BBs, a sniper patch for your battle dress uniform and a barrel cleaning rod.
