Target air rifle ?



Log in to see fewer ads
So right now I'm shooting a CMP Daisy with a modified trigger and sights off my Kimber 82G .22 rifle. I'm shooting quite well in my league competing in Master class with mostly higher end rifles.
If you were to buy a Target air rifle, $ 1000 limit. What would it be?
I was looking at the T200 and AR20. I know these are two different animals. I have the ability to try the AR20 this weekend. Someone also shoots an Umarex Gauntlet. Ugly as sin, but feels good and it does shoot! Biggest problem is no way to mount iron sights easily.

I have a Crosman Challenger and the T200. While an adult or child can shoot the T200, I feel the sight radius is too short and the trigger isn't as good as the Crosman, so I don't shoot the T200 as well. Neither trigger is comparable to an Anschutz, but the Crosman is still better than the T200. While I don't have an AR20, I think it would be a step up from the Crosman Challenger. The AR20 is also heavier than the Crosman or T200, which might be important if you also shoot 3 position small bore and want something that more closely matches a 3P rifle in size, fit, and weight.

What are you wanting, PCP or SSP? I don't shoot PCP's because of all the associated equipment required. I do have a Feinwerkbau 601 (SSP) that shoots great and routinely shoots with or beats several high dollar pcp rifles.

That was my fear on the T200 not being able to handle one.
I forgot about the Challenger (hmm?)

I'm not set on a PCP, the Feinwerkbau 601 looks VERY promising. Google searched it and some past sales have been very affordable.

FWB603.

JimE on the Targettalk bulletin board occasionally has them at around $1000.

I've bought from JimE and Carel both and prefer to buy from Carel even though he's in the Netherlands. Carel is a straight up guy. Check here.

BTW, my 601 was $600 shipped from Carel.

If it's actual target would get an SSP like an Anschutz 2002 or FWB 600/601/602. Insanely accurate without the fuss of PCP.

But what class are you shooting? Indoor or outdoor? Power or caliber limits?

In our league, master class on a AR-5/10 target. Indoors at 10m. No official power limit but 177 cal

Then I wouldn't get a TX200 unless this was only the secondary use. TX's are accurate, but not that accurate.

I love the SSP target rifle options. I've dealt with Carel before (or was it JimE) and I can vouch they will provide a quality rifle for a fair price. Maybe not a screaming bargain price, but worth it.

My first thought for under a thousand would be an Anschutz 2002. Awesome rifle. It is spring powered, and thus has lost favor to the newer CO2 guns. Last I looked, a used 2002 could be had for $600-800, about half the price of when they were new.

Do you have a link to a 2002 springer? The 2002 Super Air is a SSP and the only other 2002 I've seen is a PCP.

In addition to my FWB 601 I also have two 300S's springers. For me the 601 is worth 4-6 points over the 300's. IMHO the 601 is a better rifle in a better stock. That being said I prefer to shoot the 300's, there is just something about shooting a quality, well engineered 10M spring rifle.

Feinwerkbau P70 in Target Talk classifieds

There are two Feinwerkbau P-70's that were posted for sale today in the TargetTalk.Org Classified section. If you wanted to have a PCP rifle in your price range, that would be a very good choice.

I shot a C60 for several years in club level competition, and the P70 is a newer version of that rifle (updated stock, air instead of CO2).

BB

PS. I have no relation to the ad-just noticed it.

Wanted something to shoot 10m with in the basement or at a match. 10m Match rules dictate .177 so that rules out .22. Did not want a PCP or springer so that left either CO2 or a Single Shot Pneumatic SSP PCP is just too much trouble with a tank or pump, although they are very accurate and quick between shots with a magazine fitted rifle.

Was looking the last couple years for a FWB 601/2/3 and just kept getting beat out by price or didn't see it quick enough in classified. Found a 2002 Anschutz by accident at steel chickens for a reasonable price. Used with the risks that come with that, but it has turned out pretty well so far.

Made up some LOP spacers, put all the factory spacers/wedges for the cheek piece, cleaned a lot of small things up. Scope mounting was going to be really tricky as the dovetail in front of the loading port sits about a 1/4" lower than the dovetail to the rear of the loading port. Burris signature rings with the swivel inserts to the rescue! For now a Leupold 3.5-10 works fine, actually focuses at 10m at 3-4.5 power magnification but loses focus above that. Works great for what I want to do in practicing offhand form.
