Springer or PCP? If funds are very limited you'll probably have to look at springers, PCPs tend to go for more money.
One thing I'll say is that I love springers, nothing wrong with PCPs and I've had a few of them, but I was brought up on springers and I still use one to this day.

How much were you looking to spend?............Al :thumbs-up:

Just had a quick look in the Air Gunner magazine and you are looking at:
BSA Lightning
BSA Supersport
Webley Excocet
Weihrauch HW95

all plus a standard sort of scope of course, something like a hawke 3-9x40.

all around the £200 mark

All good value for money rifles, I'd be leaning towards the HW95 myself, the other thing would be to try some for "feel" at a gun shop, then shop around. You could check out freeads online and another useful source of info is the online reveiw site, I always check this before I buy a rifle, you could have comments ranging from expert to someone like me who can't hit the side of a barn :11: and that's on a good day!.......Al ;)

Air arms s200's are brilliant little guns, remeber you need some form of charging device for them aswell either a pump or bottle. If you dont mind forking out for one of them aswell id definatly get one. Joe


I cant find a price on them :icon_redface: can someone have a look for me? :victory:

Just had a look for you, and there about £250 just for the gun but second hand would obviously be alot cheaper. But bear in mind you have to get charging gear as well and a scope, bag, pellets etc.

My first P.C.P was BSA Spitfire with a basic 3-9x40 scope, webley pump and gun bag, all new and that came to £400. And that was starting at the cheapest end of the P.C.P market (but still a very decent setup).
