It's a buyers market and there's some beautiful rifles for sale cheap right now.
I position shoot myself, when I was looking at airgun I looked real hard at pcp's. Thought about it and decided I didn't want to play with air. I shoot in my basement and opted for the older classics. They got to be a classic for a reason.
I'm not going to say that the airguns I bought are the best by any means. I can say that they shoot way better than I can. I went with a rws 75, could use the sights in my kimber 82g also. So when I was looking for a sporter, again a rws so all the sights could be shared.
Some of the inserts that I've aquired are duplicates, alot of them copy front sights on other rifles that I own. It's extremely nice to be able to shrink a target down and put a front sight in that matches a sight picture that I want to practice with. The clear plastic pieces in the center of the paper are a set of adjustable round front sight for the rws 75. It's very simple yet a excellent sight picture. Being clear, it lets a ton of light in and it has a small black o-ring that expands and contracts as I dial it bigger or smaller.
The rws 75 that I picked up had just been rebuilt by mac-1. I paid $500 delivered to the door for it. The rws came with the rebuild receipt, complete sight sets including the metalic and adjustable front sights, origional book, tin of pellets and targets that origonally came with the rifle. From there I ran across a anschutz 250. It only had the front sight, no big deal, I wanted it to put a scope on it. So now I have 2 target airguns, one with ironsights, the other scoped. I got the anschutz for $250 delivered to the door.
Here a picture of my 2 target rifles that I have $750 dollors invested in both.
Awhile back, I stopped into a gunshop and ran across a rws 45 special edition, new in the box. I origonally wanted a rws 48 or 52 for the side lever. After I thought about it, I only shoot the sporter offhand so it's no big deal. It hasa sweet T01 trigger and I can use any of the rws metalic sight inserts that I have in it.
These are some great airguns, they have excellent ballance, sights and triggers to die for. It's a real treat to go down stairs, pick up a airgun, cock it or pull the lever and have something in my hands that tests my skills with such pin point accuracy. I don't find any of the too strong or powerful to shoot in the basement, don't have any trouble with pellets bouncing around or out of my pellet trap.
Goodluck on whatever you decide to buy. I can't say enough good about these extremely well made and highly accurate airguns.
