    Looking for some advice on the differences in the Steyr 110 models.
    FT is going to be too difficult for my young lad so we are going to give HFT a try first.
    Quite fancy trying a steyr this time so..........

    Are the FT/HUNTING/HP basically the same actions but with different stocks?...so interchangeable?

    Am I right in thinking they are not quickfill?

    If I went to purchase one is there anything specific I should look out for or ask about?

    Oh and lastly....... is the warranty transferrable

    Sorry for all the questions :)

    hi wayne
    I bought a steyr lg110 hp last year but could not get on with it coz it didnt fit me, I would buy a ft steyr so you can set it to fit the person using it and its ok for hft or ft, plus comes with hamster on ft model. A few small differences between them e.g. trigger blade, power adjuster and stocks. You can get them changed to quickfil but the reason behind why they come without them is so that you cant let air in too fast and smash the reg. Ref warranty i dont know about that. I would buy a second hand one if you can find one. hope this helps.

    Hi Shipo
    Much appreciated mate.
    To be honest I think I have decided on a FT model and very probably second hand. They are a bit scary priced new:eek:

    Now I just gotta read up on this barley twist malarkey:)


    Thanks again

    Hi,
    I've had an LG100 with a barley twist barrel and now have an LG 110 with the standard barrel and to be honest I found no difference. They both shot JSbs 4.52 equally well and in fact my average has increased with the LG110!

    Regards

    John

    from what I have read..... the barley twist is just less pellet fussy?
