Steyr semi auto

Recommended Posts

Can someone please explain what is auto indexing and why this differs from self loading?



I believe the technical difference is that the steyr doesn't load the pellet into the chamber, it aligns it with the barrel.

the pellets are fired directly from the magazine on the steyr, unlike most airguns where the probe pushes the pellet into the barrel before firing.


there have been some interesting posts on airgun bbs, some alluding to the fact that apparently 'the independent forensic lab's (LBC Ltd) opinion was that they were not self loading as per Sect 57 2a of the act and therefore not Sect 5 ab. Nabis stated they agreed. They also didn't deem them to be Sect 1 due to their power operating under the limits requiring Sect 1.'
