    Hijacked!

    I'm a little bit wary of these Discovery Optics. I don't have a ton of experience with them - but I shot an informal round of FT (it was informal for me, a competition for everyone else) in New Zealand using one on top of my friend's Air Arms S510 a couple of weeks ago. The quality surprised me, and all the reviews and feedback I've seen online have been excellent - but they've only been around for a hot minute. I'll be really curious to see how they stack up in 2 or 3 years time. Hopefully my wariness is misplaced - because they certainly seem to be a lot of scope for the money. Good luck with the Benjamin, Moley. I'd be interested to know more about the Zbroia. I have no experience of knowledge of them at all.
  2. It depends not just on the capacity of the tank and cylinder, but the fill pressure of each, too.

    I’m after a bit of advice

    Stavross, did you make a decision? I've got an HW95 sitting idle at my mum's place in Norfolk. Given that I live down under now, it's not going to get any use any time soon. It's .22 calibre. I've had it from new, which is a lot of years, but it's in great nick - was tuned by Steve Pope at Vmach a few years ago and hasn't fired more than 500 shots since then. I don't really want to let it go, but importing it to Australia is close to impossible, so I've given up on that dream. I refinished the stock years ago so it looks unique - quite a light colour. No scope with it though. I'll send pictures by PM if you'd like to see. £110 delivered by parcelforce.

    Bunnies Down Under

    Thanks Phil. There's no power restriction in Australia, but all airguns are classified as Class A firearms, the same category as rimfire and shotguns. I don't have a chrony, but I believe that my .22 Wildcat is shooting at the standard 30ft/lbs level. I can't say for certain if your neighbour is BSing you, but it doesn't sound too improbable, honestly. Guns were pretty easy to come by in Australia until the National Firearms Agreement came into being after the Port Arthur massacre in 1996. Not sure how legally he'd have been firing from the side of the road into a field, but I doubt that was of any concern to him! Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Bunnies Down Under

    G'day all, It's been a while since I posted a hunting write up in here. It's been a while since I went hunting to have anything to write up. Anyway, I picked up a nice rabbit permission recently. I went to have a look early on Saturday. Came away with these 5, all taken between 30 and 50 metres. I missed a couple, too, but I'll get them next time! Happy shooting, all.

    Weihrauch HW95

    View Advert Weihrauch HW95 This is an original HW95, in .22 calibre, which I have had from new. Vmach tuned 6 or 7 years ago, and has probably only had 500 - 1000 shots fired through it since then. Beech stock is lighter than most. Sanded back and oiled to it's natural colour. Fairly unique looking thing as a result. Gun is in great condition. It has been really well looked after, religiously wiped down after use for it's whole life. A few scuffs on the end of the muzzle weight, but that's really all. Selling rifle only. No scope to be included. Reluctant sale following relocation to Australia. Gun is located in Norfolk. Will send by Parcel Force at buyers expense. Please note that I will be coordinating with my family in Norfolk from Australia to get the rifle packed and sent when sold, and this might take a day or two. Payment by bank transfer preferred, but happy to discuss this with the buyer. Advertiser Ron Weasley Date 24/01/19 Price £150.00 Category Airguns

    Lightningse se .177

    I'm not sure quite what I said that was trying to be funny. I didn't intend to cause any offence, so forgive me if that's what I've done. Simply asking what I thought was a legitimate question. I'll PM you now.

    Am I to assume then flynndog that this means you're no longer interested in the HW95 I've been holding for you since the beginning of December?

    Good stuff Jimmy

    Ripley Elite

    I had entirely forgotten that Ripley had ever existed, and now I find out that they're still being made. Always looked like wonderful guns, I'd definitely consider it if the price is right!

    New perm for ferrals

    Good job! I've said it before, but I think feral pigeon shooting is some of the best fun you can have with an air rifle!

    FECKING WNNNNKERS

    As I mentioned...I have been out of the country for a while, so I'm probably not best placed to even be involved in this discussion! I do know that I didn't have to give any details for the last rifle I bought in England though (a .177 single shot BSA Ultra, if anybody is interested). That's a step in the right direction, at least. You're right Jimmy - this is a tough nut to crack! *edited for typo*

    FECKING WNNNNKERS

    You may well be right Jimmy, but I fall into the camp that thinks it is better try than just accept that this is a part of life. Even something simple like providing ID and requiring gun shops to keep a register of what had been sold to who would be a help. Granted, that doesn't account for the guns that are already out there, but it might help in preventing any escalation of the problem. And if we, the responsible airgunners and the airgun industry implemented something like that voluntarily then it would show some willing that might release some of the pressure. Am I a dreamer? Probably!
