Default Steyr ping

The only permanent solution is to fit the external power adjuster kit which has a new design hammer, spring and power adjuster head that can be used the adjust the power without removing the stock.

If the rifle is grouping well then i would be tempted to leave it alone but if the ping really gets on your nads then try heatshrink. If you fancy the ext power adjuster then drop me a PM. In fact if you have any questions at all then please don't hesitate to contact me.
Hi Chris many thanks for the advice.
I have seen the power adjuster mod and think I may go down that route.
As regards grouping I must say I did expect better not as good as my 2 Theobens or even my 1994 daystate factory custom, though it does seem to be improving the more its used, its about 9 months old now just cleaned the barrel that's helped though I have to admit I have not been checking the pellets, using AA 4.52
Il PM the power mod.
