This weapon uses the following tokens.
The SASR-58 uses a rotating bolt and a direct impingement gas system. It is loosely based on Eugene Stoner SR-25 design, rebuilt in its original 7.62×51mm caliber. Up to 60% of parts of the SASRR-58 does have interchangeable parts like its predecessor but with new technology available the system itself can be updated to the needs of its operator. (can be modified to fire bullets or gauss charges respectfully) SASR-58 barrels still use the same design from the ER model with its 5R (5 grooves, right twist) rifling, with twist 1:11.25 (1 complete turn in 11.25 inches or 286 millimetres). The heavy 24 in (610 mm) barrel is free-floating, so handguards are attached to the front of the receiver and do not touch the barrel.
It has a flat top upper receiver with a Mil-Std tactical rail for mounting optics and a 2-stage match grade trigger. The bolt carrier is still similar to the SR-25, but the chrome plating has been replaced with much studier lighter material with a captive firing pin retainer pin. It is designed specifically to fire 168 gr (10.9 g) open-tip match cartridges. Accuracy was guaranteed at or under 1 minute of angle.
Scorpion Security Solutions took interest in the SASR-58, particularly its high magazine capacity and faster engagement time compared to bolt-action rifles. After some modifications, SSS adopted the SASR-58 as their weapon of choice for their long distance operatives that still required flexibility in the field. Changes included a shorter 20 in (510 mm) barrel that could fire M118 and M118LR 7.62×51mm rounds and had a quick detachable sound suppressor mount. An 11.35 in (288 mm) free-floating handguard rail system allowed mounting accessories. Flip-up front sights and adjustable back-up iron sights were added, and an M16A2 stock and pistol grip were used.
