Rudi Jansen is considering to buy a new race gun (dad's damn red beast triggered this). Could all members/wise asses please give their input (from first hand experience, please) on the matter. The Steyr considered is the LG110 FT. Thanks, guys.
Steyr is light and can have weight added, Dommie is heavy - but can have weight removed.
It would be worth adding the EV2 to the list as well, particularly if Urabus's rifle is still for sale. Or perhaps we could arrange the import of another Pro-T........... :-)
As is usual if possible try before buying.
Dale you still in my good books after adding the Ev to the list.
As Guido has said the Steyr is shorter.I cant get comfortable with the gun I have tried.Fair enough I am not going to change my mates settings just to see if I find a better fit.
Out the box the Dommie is an odd animal.It is heavy as we all know.The fact that they build the stock so thin seems to hide this fact.I just love the Dommies hamster for standing shots.Its quite comfortable.
Rudi being a tall chap needs to give them a go.I must say I have been impressed with the Steyr's accuracy every time I have used it.
As far as the EV goes you all know what I think of my Baby.Swapping between the Dommie and EV the thickness of the stock on the EV is very aparrent.
In truth there to my mind are no bad race guns.They all have their quirks.
Heeltemaal Dom, Sorry Toetaal Dom,
If you miss the 10% standing shots plus the one or two you miss in any case, you are not going to be in the top 10 any longer. The clever people say: "Competitions are won with standing shots."
I recall how the Dommie owners complained about weight when we shot silhouettes at the Champs. If I am not mistaken that was when all of you started putting your Dommies on a diet Hie hie.
