    Hi Eddie, if its the same as the old ones the differences will be the reg, hammer and hammer spring. If its a 12ftlb benchrest gun you want why not get a 12ftlb gun and fit a different forend?

    I thought that the newest versions of the Steyrs came with the longer bench rest style chassis, cylinder and barrel now anyway? One of our club member's has just bought one and that appears to be the case.

    The new FT Steyr uses the same long chasis, barel and cylinder as the Benchrest gun which has been arround for a couple of years. The boost to 12 ft/lb is quite easy as it is basicaly the same gun. It can be done by changing a couple of internal bits for the ft parts. There is no need to change the reg to achieve this.

    Here is a link to the new FT gun using the Benchrest chasis:
