    I saw the rifle at the "gun show" at Kyalami. It looked liked a well made rifle. Gerrief played with it a bit more than what I did, so he can comment more on it.

    Mmmm, I see they make em in 0.20cal, with option of walnut stock. Now I wonder if they'll do one with a Theoben gas ram in it?.... but, at those prices, one could just get a proper Theoben I suppose.

    Wonder if anyone here's caught onto fact that I smaak 0.20cal? Anyone know where I can source heavier pellets than the H&N Field&Target Trophy? They're too light and I'm tired of importing Beeman's.

    nevermind the price of the air rifle......look at their gunsmith service price list......QD swivels + fitment R500, and it takes them 1 hour to do it too....... OMG

    the picture of the air rifle the guy is holding does'nt look promising.
    That rifle looks way too long and the stocl looks crap.

    and the price of their gunsmithing services..OMG!!!

    The price of my BAM51 with the London Oil finished stock has just gone up to R25000....

    "Made by Africans for africans" what does this mean, you pull the trigger and wait 2 hours before the pellet leaves the barrel.

    I don't think the Trophys are too light in your HW90.
    Barracudas should also be perfect...the HW90 likes them.

    JSB has just brought out a .20 pellet...not sure but I think they are also 14 grainers

    The heaviets are the Dae Sungs at 25grains but that is way too heavy for your gasram.

    Oops my pricing seems a bit out even for a humble airsmith, R65 for fitting studs and only R260 for swivels sling and stud fitment!!! Back to the cost calculations!!!!

    Guido,

    thx 4 the input - will see if I can get some Barracudas 'n give 'em a try.

    It seems that an average of 11.5grain pellet gives the best fps and ft.lbs in my rifle.
