Hi Matt. Good points are that they are accurate, excellent trigger, nice to shoot and adjustable.
I can strip one, clean, service and rebuild in about 45 minutes with another 15 minutes to service and set up the reg. There's a reason why you see so many on both the FT and HFT circuits.
Bad points. the only thing really is that occasionally they can be a sod when something goes wrong. POI drops due to a dirty hammer or dicky firing valve can be tricky to diagnose. I had 2 years fault free with mine and then almost 18 months of hell trying to find out why i was getting flyers and dropped shots. After replacing the internals i only had the barrel left as a problem. i bought a new barrel and that was the problem. i later had my Barley twist barrel re-crowned and it's now spot on again.Mine was one of those problems that would appear to vanish when you replaced a part only to resurface a week or month later. that's why it took so long to diagnose.
Another plus point for me is that i have a house in Holland and direct access to Steyr spares.
