    Hi im thinking about getting either the air arms ev2 or steyr lg 110.
    Both would be second hand.
    I was wondering if anyone could let me no there opinion on the two guns.
    As im realy stuck on which to go for when i have saved up the money.
    The gun would be just set up for FT comps as i have a air arms s400 set up for HFT comps.

    Thanks for reading gav

    Both are good guns but in reality you need to try both at a club for a plink. Try before you buy, I know which one I would definitely have but then some say I'm bias towards the Steyr.
    I never really got in with the EV but it certainly has won its fair share of comps.

    Pros and cons to both. If you get to one of the NEFTA comps, sure people will let you have a play with examples of both. You can try my Steyr if you want.

    Both are very good, both can have problems, try them both out and see which one suits you best. I went with the EV2.

    Steyr every time, easier to shoot well and can be adjusted to fit anyone.

    He he.... all the ones with an EV2 in their sigs singing the praises.

    How many of the EV2 shooters can service their own guns including the regs?...That's the single most important thing to me.

    There's nothing between them in accuracy or fit, i personally find the Steyr slightly better balanced.

    Gav, see if you can get along to Emley this sat as you'll be able to try LG11, LG110, EV2 and a TM1000.

    At least you are in the right area when it comes to EV2's....we have some handy blokes in the NEFTA region when it comes to the AA rifles.
