Thanks for the feedback, TCups. I think it was a good idea to replace the piston seal while you had the rifle in for service since it's a repair that's beyond the average owner and now your LGR is good for another few decades or more.

An unexpected outcome

One of my very good ham radio and shooting friends has been working with me on this rifle quest. To my surprise he offered me a 20 pound aluminum CO2 tank, tested and filled for free. He is also the president of one of our area clubs that has a very active 4H 10M air gun program.

Since I have always been after a good but not great rifle I have ordered a Daisy Avanti 887 Gold Medalist 10M rifle. It is a CMP and 4H program 10M 3P listed gun and it offered a number or attractive attributes:

Price was $305.00 new. The aperture sights are fair but interchangeable with the Anschutz match target sight set that I already have. The receiver has an integrated 11mm rail so I will also be able to easily mount my Leupold 3-9X33 EFR Rimfire scope which easily focuses at 10 meters.

While not as good as some that had been recommended it will probably be quite adequate for my needs.

Thanks to all for your suggestions and recommendations.

Congratulations ... you have good friends.
Don't forget to post some pictures of your rifle when you get it.

And the prices START at about $500? Not to disparage this guys work but at that price I believe I will just whittle my own.
