Re: Pellet Gun Recommendaitons
Springers, or Spring Air Rifles can be and usually ARE, very finicky about what type and weight pellet they like, and they absulutely require a diferent type of hold than any other type of rifle. First thing you MUST do is buy more than one type/weight of pellet (for .177 cal., usually never heavier than 10 grains and never lighter than 7 grains.). Secondly, they require the artillery type of rifle hold in order to shoot them consistantly well. On the low end for reasonable qaulity for a springer scope would be the Center Point brand. Also NEVER use a regular rifle scope on a springer rifle due to the reverse recoil and completely diferent type of vibration created by the rifle. A springer will shake even the BEST center fire rifle scope apart. I have several Springers and none of them cost more than a few hundred bucks and I would put every single one of them up against rifles costing much more. My CDT tuned Gamo Big Cat will shoot a ragged, sub-1/4" hole at 30 meters and around a 1/2" at 60 meters. I have less than $250.00 invested in the rifle. I would recommend you check out pyramidair.com or a couple of the air rifle dedicated chat forums for some really good info before spending an arm and a leg on a new rifle.
