    I've seen this question quite a few times, so lets clear this one up. Have you free floated your Steyr barrel?
    I removed the grubscrew and the little plastic washer, and dremeled the frame to make sure the barrel does not touch anywhere.

    I had sudden problems with grouping.... My steyr used to shoot well, but started to behave oddly: grouped well, then not; four shots OK, fifth away...

    Opened the screw, took that nylon part away and dremeled a bit... All wen fine and the result was better than I thought it could be.

    I must say that I am slightly critical to "good advices" people are telling, because there has been some, not-so-good advices I have heard. But this freefloating thing is really a good one.

    Now my steyr shoots very well again, probably better than ever. Free floating is the way to go!

    When you have a thick barrelled target gun, floating is the way to go for best accuracy - tried & tested long before the steyr LG100 was even born;):)
