    110 is newer with a few internal tweaks, but pretty similar afaik.

    There are two variations of the LG100 - labelled Steyr Mannlicher, and Steyr Sportwaffen.

    Anschutz bought a controlling stake of the Steyr air gun division, just so they could use the LG100s Stabilizer design in their rifles.

    Rifles produced before this happened (Mannlicher) featured the 'Barley Twist' rotary hammer forged barrel and a chassis with a single grub screw at the breech end.

    Rifles produced after this happened (Sportwaffen) featured conventional Anschutz or Lothar Walther barrels and a chassis with two grub screws at the breech end.

    Internally, the Mannlicher and Sportwaffen versions are all but identical.

    The LG110 is a development of the Sportwaffen version of the LG110, with some curious corners being cut. The chassis has been slightly redesigned, featuring the Steyr logotype and three windows routered out of the aluminium extrusion itself. A cylinder locating O-ring was also introduced to stop the air cylinder getting scratched at the muzzle end of the chassis.

    Whilst there has only really been one single version of the LG110, there have been numerous different versions of many of the key components, and as a result you never quite know what you're going to find when you open up an LG110. Most of the components are in fact common - just configured differently. The regulator is a good example, as this common design can be configured anywhere from 80 to 120bar, depending on the intended usage.

    Other notable variations include the colour coding of the transfer port, ball bearing trigger pin, ball bearing cocking pin, external power adjuster and lightweight FT hammer/exhaust valve springs. Gold transfer ports are fitted to <6ftlb rifles, black transfer ports were originally fitted to <12ftlb and FAC rifles, but current rifles have a silver transfer port at <12ftlb specs. The most recent rifles also allow for ambidextrous cocking.

    In my experience, there's very little to pick and choose between all the different variations. The most important thing to look for is a rifle with a black transfer port. The original Barley Twist versions of the LG100 can command a bit of a price premium, as there is a school of thought that these barrel are superior and are less pellet fussy.

    Hope this helps!

    Cam.

    The 100s are better built with more reliable internals and better woodwork.

    I have 2 which date from 2003 which have had no work done on them at all except altering the power and cleaning the barrels.

    I have heard of 110s being sent back to Harry Preston so many times they know the way. :D

    What are the internal differences between the 100s and the 110s what every 100 owner bangs on about?
    According to harry there's no difference what so ever and he should know.
