    Few more rabbits

    I wouldn't want that lot on my back for too long either! As a tip - if you get the guts out of them as you pick them up, you'll save a lot of weight! Great shooting gents, I'm pretty jealous!

    Weihrauch HW95

    Weihrauch HW95 View Advert 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.

    HW95

    Hi all, Mods, please don't consider this as an ad. It's more of a plea for help! I've tried to sell my HW95 on here a couple of times - each time I've had some interest, and each time that interest has either turned out to be from time-wasters, or things just haven't aligned and the sale hasn't worked out. But I'm having another go! Here's the thing: I'm in Australia, but the rifle is in Norfolk, so a sale will need to be coordinated with my family and might take a couple of days to get things together. Rifle only. V-Mach tuned a few years ago and not had much use since then. Will ship via parcelforce for somewhere around £20 - £25. Somebody must be looking for something like this?

    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.
  7. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
