About Me: I am the webmaster of the first French speaking forum FT and HFT.
I am also the oldest French shooter in these disciplines and I'm getting a bit of experience in terms of air rifle. I have two EV2 and one Steyr LG 110 old version.
The Steyr is quite disappointing. after 40 m, accuracy is more like a 12 gauge as a precision air rifle.
I have tried all that is possible to try in terms of tuning:
HW 100 Barrel 60 cm long
55 cm BSA barrel
Air stripper Steyr, rowan, and custom (I will not give you the nameof the manufacturer, but it is well known).
Sanding the ends of the hammer spring
Adjusting the air regulator
Attaching a barrel weight at its end
Setting all the mechanics in compliance with instructions given by steyr
Looking for the perfect pellet, resizing the pellets
In France i'm not alone in this case since the 6 steyr we bought (group of friends) no one shoot straight compared to my 2 EV2 much less compared to the P70 a friend.
I'll have a depression and i'm not alone.
Today, I wish to buy an Anschutz and tune it for FT.
What do you advise me? 8002, 2002 or other model ? ( 9003 is to expensive for me)
what about the minimum cost of a good tuning for these rifles. ( 12 ftlb + custom weaver bridge+ ...??)
Thanks for your answers
