    one could buy the Steyr HP and with the 4 or 5K saved on the FT version could then have a custom stock built...mmmmm

    Save 4K? Does that include the cost of the stock?
    If he can afford the scope on top he can afford the FT version.

    Look like a quick fill conversion - that's an area Steyr need to address or at least give an option on!

    Beautiful stock, but on the HP, it would look much better in black.

    Ice I disagree that Steyr needs to address the issue of the quick-fill cylinder.
    The Steyr cylinders work perfectly....never had a problem with them, and remember that with the quick-fill connector in front you loose the pressure gauge.

    Gerrief I think the silver section at the front complements the silver bits of hardware at the rear perfectly.

    Guido,
    I have been in trouble before, about what I am going to say now. I think the "Space Age" rifles are dirt ugly. Since starting to use it in the military I regarded it as a tool to get a bullet/pellet into the target very accurately only and it does that extremely well. I prefer a wooden stock, not laminated, with a normal recoil pad on the end.
    I am very far from being an expert on rifles or firearms, but I see no benefit in having an adjustable butt plate on a FT rifle. I believe it is very unlikely that you will shoot two exact identical shots in your FT shooting career, like with 10m Olympic and B/R, etcetera.
    The quick fill, in my humble opinion, is the best thing that can happen to our rifles. I saw what happens if a spec of dirt gets into the threads or, God forbids, you drop the tank 2mm too soon and the tread get damaged. Although I prefer the EV, I think the Steyr is the best looking of the "Race Guns.? Lastly, I am still to meet the shooter that increased his score by changing to a "Space Gun", all the guys I know is doing as well/bad as with their previous "sporter" rifles. Having said all this, it does not mean that I will not buy one if I can afford it, only because I want it :dunno

    Gerrief a lot of people prefer traditional looking rifles...I personally like both and have a wide selection of all types.

    The adjustable buttpad is nice to have...and allows the buttpad to hook under the armpit if so required.
    I find once set up the Steyr buttpad is comfortable from all shooting positions.
    Most buttpads on traditional stocked rifles are too high up and do not allow the comfortable use of high mounts and large objective scopes.
    The quick fill may have some advantages especially for people that are accident prone...I prefer to have the pressure gauge....a quick fill can be retrofitted anyway.
    Ultimately it is up to the marksman and not the rifle...most high end rifles are equally accurate.

    Have a look at the new AA MPR in it's FT guise...it may be the rifle for you!!

    Morning Guido,
    I have looked at the MPR (not the FT version though) It is nice and comfortable, but as I said, I don't think it will do anything to my shooting. I also have the NJR S400 that Nick shot and won the worlds with. When I use it, I don't score any better than with my standard, "chlorinated" S400. Therefore, as YOU say,? it is the driver not the rifle.?

    Hi all,
    Not quite the right place for this but--- I think the faster we adopt the UK. Rules for HFT.and FT.the better it will be for our sport I get the impression some of us want to reinvent the wheel for what reason I do not know?Following the racegun route indiscriminantly will harm the numbers that want to compete,we need to push HFT.
