    Hi All;

    I want to order an air stripper/air compensator for my LG110 FT (Previous short version).
    Which one will be the best choice according to you?
    Which one is more efficient and more functional than others?

    There are some options as below;

    1. Euroshooting Steyr double compensator

      For 16.0mm Diameter Plain Barrels

    air stripper for STEYR

    Hi

    Standard STEYR seems to be doing the job, although I personally never tried to shoot without.
    This one is easy to fit and holds tight to the barrel. Pricing is quite high to me.

    ROWAN looks nice but is single action to my understanding.
    Never had a chance to try this one. I am pretty sure some guys here can share experience.

    LEUPY quitted production of air strippers (as confirmed to me by Drum two weeks ago).
    You could have a try with him anyway.

    I bought a sleeve end (1/2 thread) from LEUPY for my STEYR, and hope one day to find the perfect air stripper to fit on.

    cheers

    Out of all of them, the best by a mile, is the steyr original, but it does need to be fitted correctly in line or it will strip lead off the pellets as well as the air.:D

    Fitting the "double" Steyr compensator certainly reduced the muzzle flip with my own gun.

    late reply (by 4 years!) but I have the Rowan on mine, and it does what it says on the tin (yes it is a single cone)

    I also have one fitted within the carbon shroud of my 9015. They are very good.

    As far as I'm aware they just make the end of the barrel look pretty and protect the barrel crown.

    I have a Zenith which has no air stripper at all, just an empty shroud extension, and that will shoot as well as any air rifle you can mention. Nick Murphy knows a bit about barrels.

    So just buy the one that you think looks best and imagine that it's actually doing something useful.

    Ps, I have a Steyr LG 100 that was serviced by Chris Cundy that has a screw off muzzle brake so a silencer can be fitted.
    Shot indoors at 60 yards, with and without the muzzle brake fitted, there is absolutely no difference.

    I make air strippers and muzzle brakes for Steyrs. I can also anodise them in most colours.

    Have a look at my Facebook page link below to see what I make.
