WHATS THE BEST PCP AIR RIFLE TO GET

Recommended Posts

hi everyone :)

 

this is a follow up of my last blog about the best spring rifles to get. i went to my local gun shop last night and had a talk to them about pcp rifles as i wasn't too knolegable on them, and in the space of 15 minutes have fallen in love with them.

the question is pretty much the same, what are the best pcp's to buy for around 500-600 pounds?

i'm looking for an accurate and powerful .177 rifle, with a reasonable amount of shots before a re-fil is needed and has (apopolgies for the term as i have forgot the actual word) a 10 pellet magazine or more.

 

i have seen quite a few at the gun shop but due to the price i would like a second opinion. my price range is flexible too! :)

 

thanks for all the help! :gunsmilie:

If I had that amount to spend, I'd be looking at an air arms s410k in .22 flavour. :thumbs:

Does it have to be new and from a gun shop? For £500 - £600 second hand you will get a very good pcp gun, scope, silencer, bag and probably a pump / charging bottle.

The sales section on here, pigeonwatch, airgunbbs, airgun forum, air arms owners club, falcon owners club, BSA owners club, weihrauch owners club and gun trader to name a few. Try and make sure the person you are buying off has been registered for a while and has a decent number of posts and prior sales that went well before parting with any cash. Most honest sellers won't mind you arranging a time to meet them look at the gun / extras and if possible have a brief shoot in their garden / permission to try it out. Ask for recent pictures showing the condition of the gun / extras and see if it meets the description in the advert.

The one that your comfortable with, that you can sit in your shoulder and makes you think yes that's the one for me, seriously go to your nearest gun shop and try a few.

What everyone else has said really, loads of good pcp rifles which fall into the sort of money you are thinkin about spending. So, its all down to trying a few out and personal preference.

 

Another vote for the air arms s410k from me, but thats just my personal preference.

 

One thing I will say though, is I think you are better off buying 2nd hand as you will save money, and you wont loose loads on depreciation. For example, you very often see the s410k for around 400->450quid 2nd hand, with scope, silencer and very often including a pump. New, your lookin at say 40quid for a scope, 50quid for a silencer and 130quid for a pump... If you already have any of those, you can sell them off, bringing the price of the gun down even more.
