I like my airrifles

Post by scout4 » Mon Mar 08, 2010 11:37 am

I've enjoyed going out an shooting airrifles. I've had a few of them, presently own two. Have a model 880 daisy pumper, and a crossman quest 1000 spring piston rifle. Both shoot great! Takes some getting use to, an there's a nack to aquire to be accurate. Thanks! scout4<><

I have a Beman R-1 a good friend gave me years ago. Although it was top of the line in it's day it has never grouped well. Any suggestions?

According to my wife, I have to many air guns. Typing that out sounds very absurd, but it is what it is. I have a couple marauders that I use for animal control. Before that I used springers exclusively and still have several. My girls like to shoot them so all is good. PCP air rifles will spoil you to wanting to shoot springers unless you just enjoy shooting. Which I do.

AirForce Condor SS on order. Buddy of mine has one in .22 and it is a sweet shooter. Took a pest at 84 yards with it the other evening and it sealed the deal on me ordering one. Ordering the .25 cal. It should pack a punch. A lot more than my RWS springer in .177 cal.
