    Hey fellas!

    Just like the title says… My first PCP air rifle. I really don’t have much since I’m very new to the sport say, but damn you Ted and your videos! Since I first saw him blast a pigeon at 130 yards I knew I wanted one. Before that I was shooting only springers but never before a PCP. A lot of time has passed since then and I decided to pull the trigger and buy in my typical fashion – Buy once, cry once.

    So far I’ve fired about 1500 shots but didn’t have much time to test it with a chrony. I’ve only shot one string with it at factory settings using JSB Jumbo Exacts 5,52mm.
    I don’t know if it’s important but after shot No.159 I’ve had to switch tins since I ran out of pellets so I’ve decided that I’ll crunch the numbers up to that point. The weather also went from cloudy to without a cloud above the chrony whilst shooting the string.

    Because the weather wasn’t cooperating and when it was I was nowhere near the range I don’t have any 50m and 100m groups yet. When I do I’ll post them.

    As far as free floating the barrel goes, the first thing people do with a LG110 with a wandering POI is remove the screw and plug and hog out the ring.
    Other than that the LG110 is just about perfect out of the box. It’s my favorite airgun. 
    Make sure you have the black transfer port if you want to boost velocity.

    I’ll do that after I’ll stretch it out a bit and see how it goes. 
    I do have the black transfer port already installed and I upped the power so that It can push JSB Jumbo Exacts at about 250m/s (820fps). I get about 44 shots before the POI shifts. To achieve those speeds I had to turn the power adjuster for 15 “holes” clockwise.
    Do you think that’s ok or should I also change the regulator pressure so that there isn’t so much force on the hammer spring?

    15 holes is what? Maybe 2 or 3 revolutions? It’s a pretty fine thread, as I remember, so I think you’re OK. The Steyr is not an especially efficient gun with a smallish tube so I think you’re in the ballpark. I’ve never adjusted the regulator, so I don’t know how to advise you. It seems the factory has 2 or 3 settings for the regulator. If yours came shooting 15 fpe it might have the mid setting. Mine is shooting about where your’s is but I have the shorter barrel.

    Nice gun and obviously accurate
    as for the barrel front support DO NOT over tighten the set screw ( there should be a small piece of plastic at the bottom of the setscrew hole ), It should be less than snug to allow the barrel to slide for expansion and contraction but not bounce in the support
    If you want to get serious about power settings you will need to get a reg checker for the Steyr reg’s

Thanks for the heads up! 
    I have a spare Hill pump gauge. Couldn’t I make it at home or is it more complex?

Well it’s only 15m but tomorrow’s forecast is looking good.

    I’m going go try it at 50m and give you guys an update.

Moving the hole on the left to the position of the one on the right. Like this:

    No idea how much revolutions. Have to mark and count them.

Just looking at your picture it looks like there are 6 holes / revolution. So moving like you show is 1/6 revolution. If you adjusted the dial 15 holes that’s 15 / 6 =  2.5 revolutions. 
    Where did you buy your hunter being set up so low? Are you in the states?
    I have the standard lg110 HP model with the plain, black painted stock. The barrel on mine is shorter and the reservoir may be as well. My receiver is only slotted on one side and cannot be modified to left hand cocking. It came without the external power adjuster so I upgraded that and the striker. Later I free floated the barrel with positive results. Mine is now shooting around 15 fpe and I don’t think I have a lot more in reserve without adjusting the reg. But it is an indoors gun and it is good enough for me. I also fitted a moderator from TKO to take care of the “crack”. Oh, yes, mine is also .177.
    The lg110 is modular in design and very easy to work on. Steyr has published a number of maintenance videos available on Youtube. Again, visit Shooting-the-Breeze if you haven’t done so already.
