    What's the sweet-spot for a Steyr reg?

    90bar?

    Cheers,

    Cam.

    Is it normal for the reg to retain air after the cylinder has been removed?

    I can't say I've seen it on a Steyr before – a Hammerli maybe, but not a Steyr.

    I got a bit of a fright last night when I removed the cylinder and the rifle still dry-fired two shots.

    Will do if the reg is not set properly, only happens if reg configuration is set too high ;)

    According to the reg tester it's 90 bar on the nose...

    ...with 8 washers ()()()()

    It might be because the belville washers are configured in the shape of 2 ladies bottoms.

    Hope that helps :D
