    Default STEYR VS DOMMI - PROS & CONikko Stirling

    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.

    Well said Dale..

    and keep in mind it is far cheaper to add weight to a Steyr than removing it from a Dommie.

    Steyr is also a lot shorter which makes a lot of sense in the seated FT position where you do not want too much weight in the front

    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.

    As Allan said-no bad race guns....... I think the best advise for him would be:

    TRY BEFORE YOU BUY

    the pros are its a dommie the cons are ints a steyr.

    just jokes before i get shot at.

    try them out. johan your son is a big stong lad so the weight wont be a problem. the weight was never a problem as 90% of the shots are sitting.

    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.

    Hennie, if you were using a BAM, the silhouette could well have been won with a BAM! We are only seeking seriuos (good) advice (pros & cons) on this matter.

    JohanJan...bottom line is this...

    Try both rifles, hold them, fondle them, shoot them....only then will you know.
    They are both as good as each other but you will only fall for one of them...

    asking advice is not really fruitful at this point since you know pretty much what both rifles are about..

    Johan,
    You are right to the last full stop. I have said long ago: Experience and talent canít be bought. In Rudiís case, it would be as Guido said, personal choice, what feels good,
    not necessary what it cost, give or take R1000-00.

    Johan, let him shoot with both, and see what suits his shooting style, and personal taste.

    We know they are both good, capable rifles.
