Webley raider 10 or single shot

one of the best rifles iv had

i was a fool to get rid of it in 22

but 177 just as good

and you should get a full set up for the £200 to £230 mark

How has no one noticed that front scope ring not seated right? LOL

I don't shoot airguns anymore but I'd be dubious how firmly your scope is seated mate. Bring that front scope mount a touch back so it sits flush with the scope tube and isn't canted up by the taper of the objective lens.

:good:

Be careful with Freeads mate - there's some good deals to be had on there but, there's also a few scammers. 

 

It's up to you but, I'd be looking for one that I could go and collect.

Is it worth replacing the gun or not is so with what kind?

I read thread this thread when it started and thought you've been getting some good detailed advice so there was nothing l could add.

Then l remembered what it was like when l had my first air rifle. In those far off days we started off with whatever rifle we could afford or was handed down to us. Most of them were pretty crude compared with what is in use today. A rifle like your xorcet would've been a thing of dreams.

 Persevere with it !

Forget pointy pellets; the Rws should be pretty good or maybe a heavy Jsb. We  had to make do with what was cheapest in the local shop,usually a choice between soft Milbros or hard Wasps . 

Make sure your scope is tight and zero it at 20 yards . When you are confident the rifle and you are shooting straight,maybe see what you can do at longer range. 

There  is no shame in confining yourself to short range hunting. In fact you will learn a lot more about fieldcraft and proper stalking than you will if you chop and change your rifles in search of some holy grail, or go straight in with a super dooper Pcp . 

Enjoy what you have to hand for a while . Then you will be able to make your own descision about upgrading, or not ......And to be honest a 2p group with a springer ,at 30 yards isn't that bad . Especially as you are still experimenting with pellets.

I'm wondering if l should get my tin hat 🙊
