Best Lightweight, Affordable, Accurate, PCP Air Rifle?

Recommended Posts

Hi pep's, the Lurchers are in semi retirement due to the crops in the field so I thought I'd purchase an air rifle. I bought a Hatson mod 60 (It weighs a tonne!) as the gun shop recommend this to me as a starter gun. I'm getting more into things now and I though 'hopefully' someone on here could recommend a lightweight, affordable, accurate, PCP air rifle to upgrade to? .22 would be best.

 

Thanks in advance :)

I think your best bet would be either an Air Arms S200, as Buster already said, or a BSA Ultra.

 

Thanks for the advice so far :)

 

The BSA Ultra Multi looks rather tempting... what is the correct term for the cylinder that holds the gas? Is it possible to upgrade these to a bigger one so I don't have to keep running to the gun shop to get it recharged?

Air cylinder you get a hell of a lot of shots per fill in .22

Sorry for the novice questions but is the BSA Ultra Tactical stock the lightest stock available? Is it some form of carbon fibre?

 

I love this forum! :notworthy:

Hi matey the tactical stock is made of some sort of composit plastic and IMHO is very light. Hope this helps.

Cant go wrong with an S200 mate! I would deffinately go with the S200 over the Ultra, as the Ultra doesnt have many shots per fill.

 

Plus with the S200 you can also add a multi-shot conversion at a later date if you find it neccesary.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Mikey.
