yeah ive had quite a few springers,,had a custom tuned hw97k which was AMAZING and as accurate as a pcp with the tuning,,,also had tx200 various bsa's,,hw 95k,,,yep i loved the stock on my bsa super 10,,i was a walnut lover and nearly all my rifles had to have a walnut stock lol the hw100 is an amazing pcp and i would defo recomend one,,prob the most accurate rifle ive EVER owned!! when i first got into pcps i used a stirrup pump all the time as couldnt be arsed to keep traveling to get cylinder refilled lol (was a 20 mile trip almost) and found they work quite well,,,obviously harder work than just using a cylinder but not that hard and works a treat :) i really do miss shooting air rifles but theres no clubs at all over here on the island and i couldnt kill anything anymore,,,i miss my old air rifle club :(

Out shooting today with my Colt Python 6" barrel with the Chrome finish, Quick accuracy test at 24ft, note the black inner circle is 2" in diameter and most shots were within that circle, so brilliant gun for a bit of tin can shooting.

This pic shows the gun off a little better, it's an absolute belter.

Yeah, to be honest, in all this excitement I can't remember whether I fired only five shots or six and this being a powerful co2 hand gun you gotta ask yourself "do you feel lucky?" "well do ya punk?" :lol:

I wouldn't fancy being shot with that rifle either, I'm sure it would inflict major organ failure.

Accuracy test with the HW45 spring powered pistol at 24ft using air arms fields 8.4 grain pellets. First shot outside black inner circle was my fault as I'd forgot how light the trigger was and it went off prematurely, there were about 30 shots fired and many were going through the same holes near the center, I didn't really take much time between shots so could do better but bare in mind I'm not a very good shot anyway but I hope this gives an idea how accurate this pistol can be.
Next up for testing will be the colt single action army sometime in the next week or so.

Nice, just wish our gun laws were relaxed and handguns allowed, go on treat yourself to that glock and enjoy, put up some pics if you decide on buying it.

The colt single action army otherwise known as the peacemaker, very nice replica, they come in several different finishes including nickle, antique and blued finish, I chose the blued one as I prefered it over the others but it's just personal choice as all the guns are identical. Bit of a spread here at 24ft but you'll be hitting tin cans with this all day long, Bit of a git to sight though as the rear site is just a very shallow grove and on dark backgrounds can be very difficult to see, still, lovely gun for the collection. More or less same consistency as the Colt Python few posts above. One thing that really deserves a mention is the trigger, being single action only there is hardly any take up and the the pull is very crisp and light, one of the best triggers on a co2 pistol I've had the pleasure to pull, or is that squeeze? :D

Now give me a pistol that can shoot pellet on pellet at 40 yards and I'd be jumping for joy, yeah wishful thinking I know but I've always bee a bit of a dreamer. :lol:

Fitted wood grips to my Swiss Arms 1911, feels so much nicer now, the original grips felt like you were gripping a cheese grater.

Here's my lovely MP-654K Baikal Makarov made side by side in the factory with its real counterpart, this gun is made using many parts from the real gun so weapons grade steel converted in Russia to fire 4.5mm steel BB's only. A replica collectors dream. Field strips too.

Another accuracy test, this is the Umarex Smith & Wesson 586 pellet only shooter with a 6" rifled barrel shooting again at 24ft. Very pleased with the result as I haven't adjusted the sights, this is right out the box and pretty much dead center, just a minor adjustment needed to shoot a little more to the left and Bobs your Jock.

Unlicensed Sig 226-S5 same gun as the licensed X5 accuracy test again @24ft, smooth bore 4.5mm steel BB gun. bit all over the place but I really do suck with these blowback guns, I'm sure it would do much better in more capable hands. Nice gun though, very heavy, I've also fitted a laser as you can see.

Umarex Beretta 92fs pellet shooter, really nice gun, good accuracy too with a rifled barrel this will hit the target every time with a bit of practice, first time shooting this so a bit of practice needed myself. Comes in a foam lined hard plastic case, really nice heavy weight gun.

Another Umarex pellet pistol, this is the Colt Government 1911 A1. If you're after a good accurate pellet pistol then these high quality guns are among the best, this one along with other Umarex pellet shooters usually cost a little more but you are getting a great gun. I'll be testing this one out sometime over the next week or so.
