Hi there Mac.
Nice one mate. I've packed my HW80 stock for the post to you this afternoon. I can't express my gratitude enough, this is so kind of you. I'm looking forward to seeing how you progress with this.
I know I'm unkind to these Chinese SMK rifles but, I'm absolutely spoilt by what I get from my Weihrach springers. Are these any good?
I sometimes wish we had the same sort of gun laws as they have in the US for owning former WW2 rifles. like these. You can buy a good condition Mosin Nagant 7.62mm rifle and PU scope for a couple of hundred dollars and no license in some places.
Naa there crap but i would say ok for plinking in the garden Simon if i was 8 or 9yrs old lol
But i think its these old smk,s that have got most of us into the sport in the first place just like the old gat pistols
and the like, just go back to when we were kids getting up on a xmas morning and opening the long box wrapped in xmas paper to reveal the smk rifle that sits in the box in front of you .
your not bother,d that its a smk your not bother,d that it looks cheep and nasty to you its the best thing since sliced bread , you run out side to the garden closely followed by your dad set a target up out of the free packet of targets
fit your pencil scope on and shoot away till your hearts content .
now the thing is when you step back and look at your dad when he has a go he is standing there with the rifle placed upon his shoulder and the biggest smile he can muster on his face is it so bad that its a cheep and nasty gun or is it the start of a BIG ADVENTURE that will last a life time
Not all of our parents could afford a cracking top of the range gun and still a good few cant even know
But as a child just starting off in this sport its the best top of the range rifle to him or her
at the end of the day when your a kid what do they know about hw,s bsa, AA and so on
Its an air rifle and it theres yeeeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaaaaa
apart from that Simon they make a fecking good Bat or door stop lol
