    Had both and had problems with both. I now have 2 Steyrs because i have easy access to spares and there's nothing i can't fix with them.

    I had a few problems with my Steyr (it turned out to be the barrel in the end) and needed a gun that i could trust so bought a Dommie. After 8 months i got rid as it just didn't do the business on a course....although seemd fine on the zero range.

    I've owned and shot a steyr for 11years now and in that time I've only had one real issue with it and that was a worn cocking lever and cocking pin meaning the bolt wouldn't stay shut, however after 250,000+ shots I can forgive it for that little misdemeanor:D I currently have two steyrs totalling 15years of ownership and I sold my dominator in under a year, so steyr all the way for me :)
