I have been wanting a power-boosted LP50 for a long time, to my big surprise it's now readily available as OEM! :shock: :shock:

I'd imagine a HP Compact would look really good together with my H5A Scout. :mrgreen:

I could not resist no more, had to get one of these! Ordered the Compact, but the mailman came with the regular one - well I'm not going to send it back now. :mrgreen:

Find it a bit strange that this high power version is marked with the F inside a pentagram? A quick chrony sessions shows that it is shooting the 8.44gr JSBs at 660 (11j) a little weak compared to the advertised 14 joule.

I'll report back once I had a chance to test it out properly.

Love these "self-indexing" Steyrs (the long one is waiting for a stock from Gary Cane and a bigger March)! :D

Lovely pics. ; I like the table which adds a perfect backdrop & contrast to the 2 Steyrs...adds some atmosphere of old versus new world...

OK, If I move to France where 20J is the norm for the rifles...am getting the Scout AND the pistol ;) and perhaps a leftie...imagine holding one in each hand firing them off at tin cans :lol:

Indeed the F is out of place...I think they must just grab any semi finished block off the production line and add the higher output reg and presto...done...

Keep us updated ...

I stand corrected, the vendor I bought the guns from is sending me the Compact and a return label today. :) Let's see how this goes regarding import taxes and such, would hate to pay 2x25% VAT..

Haha! I got the size large ambidextrous grip, maybe I should try shooting at some clay pigeons with both guns at the same time :lol:

Mmmm...

Firing these off is like taking 3 or 5 shots before needing to replace the cylinder..

3 Mags X 5

5 Mags X 5


I think the standard length is best bet, but alternatively you can fire the standard length air cylinder fitted to the shorter air pistol...

NB: a possibility if to convert a carbon fibre air tank, carry onself like a small back pack, with wire braided hose linked to to an adaptor situated at mid point (between reg and air cylinder for better hold & balance) so that way you have an unlimited air supply, and just load up on 50 mags :o :lol: - this back pack portable air supply contraption has added benefit - can also be used for the Steyr Scout, when you're deep in the Norwegian woods miles from nowhere ;)
