    Hi, welcome to the forum.
    you haven't given much info to go on.
    Sound like a possible adjustment problem?
    Have you had the Steyr apart recently.
    Check when cocking that the bolt "snaps" closed.
    Try holding the cocking lever in the closed position and then fire.
    The air cylinder is full and fully screwed home onto the reg.
    Let us know how you get on
    cheers Barry

    Hi Mate...Barry has nailed most of it above. Have you bought it SH as someone could have been tinkering with the reg set up and locked the valve down inside. I wouldn't expect that to be the problem though as i've only seen that once. Make sure the cylinder is full and properly screwed on, when cocking make sure you bring the cocking lever fully back so that you can hear a click as the stabiliser is engaged and then fully forward so that there is a positive 'clunk' when it locks closed.

    What's the history of the rifle?

    dry fire

    Has it got a dry fire facility if so it is just a matter of cocking the rifle and repositioning the lever to allow the hammer to hit the valve

    Hi,

    If you bought it brand new could it be returned to the supplier, as really it should work straight out the box and messing about could void your warranty. If something is really wrong inside then you will incur unnecessary costs.

    Regards

    John
