2) Steyr LG100 & 110's fitted with External adjusters, these can take the form of the official Steyr adjuster or modification being to allow access to the standard adjuster. Steyr were aware of the potential for the external adjusters being used to turn the rifle up which is why they now produce a restricted transfer port which limits the power, the problem is this often affects the shot count of the rifles.

3) Daystate Mk3 & Mk4's that may exceed the limit if reset to factory default as turning up & down via the trigger can be done whilst in a stock.

I've recently worked on a relatively new LG110 that doesn't have the restricted port but does have an external power adjuster fitted which is designed to bottom out on the back of the hammerand stop the gun cocking if its adjusted to try and take the gun over power. At max it will run at 11.4ftlb. It seems Steyr has tried a few variations to to limit the guns but its useful to see that they have still allowed some user adjustability without being able to go over the top.
