Butt hook for the Steyr HFT
« on: June 24, 2019, 03:45:50 PM »
I've purchased a Steyr HFT to campaign in Open Class. It has the standard butt plate from Steyr.
Ideas for a butt hook that's better for Open?

Thanks,
Bob

MEC stuff is very popular, tho tough finding them in stock at USA dealers.

Maestro Designs overseas does some nice ones too ( mostly printed stuff )

May also want to contact THOMAS AIR, not sure who's BUTT gear he is using but sure nice stuff

Thanks, Scott!

Can anyone recommend a butt hook design that adds the least amount of thickness along the length-of-pull dimension?

Thanks, Zack!
In doing my research, I found a trail of your Steyr posts.
I may be hitting you up for ideas.

I tried a Meastro hook. Plenty of adjustability, but no matter how much I tightened the bolts it wouldn’t stay put.

Bob,  I have a Steyr LG 110 with an Anschutz Butt Hook #4765  What do you have on your rifle now?  I shoot hunter class and have to remove the hook and would prefer something different . Perhaps we could make some type of trade if we like what each other has?  Just a thought, let me know!!  J.L.  J.L.

Hi, all.

Here's a great option I found, thanks to a tip from a British shooting friend.
Precision Rifle Systems makes several really nice CNC aluminum rifle accessories.
PRS is operated by Gavyn Jones, an avid FT shooter and super nice guy.
His web site is undergoing some updates as I write this, but it was very easy to use and Gavyn delivered as promised.

Cheers,
Bob
