I have owned 6, currently own 3, and the only work on any of them was to set the power.
I have owned Feinwerkbau P 70, Walther Dominator, Sportsmatch GC 2 and all are top notch but for ease of use nothing beats a Steyr LG 100.
The P 70 is very prone to the point of aim shifting unless the scope is mounted soley from the barrel.
The Dominator has a beautifully slick trigger and handles very well but has a significant recoil.
The GC2 is very dead to shoot and is very accurate and consistent but is let down by a heavy trigger and an obstructive loading system.
You are a lucky man, or a very hard working man to have owned such a fine selection of rifles. I have a friend up here who is willing to loan me an FWB P70 for an HFT, and I look forward to trying it. I have tried a few Steyrs in the past and they are certainly as accurate as any rifle I have shot, but I am slightly put off that make of rifle because of seeing a lot of threads discussing fettling and cleaning. I was also made aware of the ISP Airstream rifles and those look amazing. I intend to research ISP a good deal more. I have had a shot of an anschutz too, it was obviously a great rifle, but it felt a little odd in my hands. I intend to have a stock of my own design cnc'd, so perhaps the anschutz would feel more comfortable to me. Thanks for your input
