    Hi , all . Could someone tell me what is the difference in an Official UK import and non official Steyr please . I have a non official import which seems to me a little low on shot count . Shoots great and is very accurate . Could the shot count be due to the fact that I have a BSA Goldstar barrel fitted ?
    Thanks for now
    Don

    What Model is it and what power are you running at, Also what is the shot count?
    You have the best transfer port fitted for shot count, As far as I know the transfer port fitted to uk imports is the only difference
    unless someone knows different

    Hi Don,
    Running at 777 (11.32) from a 200 bar fill with 8.44 Jsb's and the black transfer port I think you should be getting approx. 100 shots per fill, maybe a few more, Do you know the guns history?
    There are a few very knowledgeable Steyr people on this site who will no doubt be able to point you in the right direction on what to check

    Hi Don,
    The 370mm barrel length will not be helping your air efficiency, standard short barrel is 450mm long barrel is 550mm so it will be using more air to get the pellet to 777 fps at the muzzle
    I don't know by how much but losing 80mm on barrel length will reduce your shot count
