    Sounds like your barrel has moved a touch, see the Steyr video here for how to reset it

    the screw at the front next to the 2mm allen key which holds the trigger housing on turn this clockwise its a small flat head screw driver,if it keeps doing this the sear ingaugement is set up to light and this is located inside the trigger housing,if you search on ere matey steyr lg110 their is a video clip showing how to set the sear ingagment :):):):):)

    Don,t touch that sear engagement screw which is inside with the red whitness compound on the screw your trigger will poor afterwards. I Had to sort out Dingley Dels steyr after the guy he bought it had play with that screw

    It was just the weight set to light i would guess

    Nothing whatsoever to do with the barrel, leave well alone. Probably have to make both the first and second stage weights a tad heavier.

    How cold was it todat, no point checking at room temp, if set too light they have a habbit of getting extremely light and going off unexpectedly in extreme cold.

    Sorry to disagree with you here, but if the trigger is set very light and the barrel is not set spot on, the symptoms which were described can occur. I know cos it happened to me:)

    Barrel not set corectly means that the stabiliser bolt has not engaged properly meaning that it is not held in place and keeps opening. Again trigger is seperate.

    Well lets agree to differ, shall we, because those symptoms happened to me with a very light trigger and a slightly out barrel.
    I can only speak and advise from experience. I adjusted the barrel and the symptoms went away.

    I think you must need yours servicing if you have experienced that because I have shot down to -6 or so with no change in the trigger operation:)

    Yeah I probably do, but what has a service got to do with the operation of trigger adjustment. Who serviced yours Harry Preston?

    i would beg to differ the barrel pressure has nothing to do with the trigger only the set of the dry fire,if the barrel is not far anoth back the dry fire only engauges and wont close the breach to hold it closed matey,you need the correct pressure to hold breach shut,the trigger can be set to 90 grammes and still cock any lighter than this it wont cock(to light) :):)ive shoot mine below -6 and the trigger stops the same its your finger being to cold to feel the trigger senseativaty

    thanks chris, you obviously know and understand more about the mechanics and operation of your Steyr than some others;). Good to see some useful, helpful advice.:)
