    Default Suitable Springer for a lady

    What springer would be suitable for a lady shooter, but also won't break the bank, so HW is out.

    Gamo 400 (not the 440!)
    Has a light cocking break neck stroke
    Trigger is not exceptionally good but OK
    The rifle is railed for scope fitting
    Peep site friendly
    Very reasonably priced
    Chrono's at 580 fps

    If money was not an issue I would say HW95K.

    If they are still available the RWS Mod34 is OK, also worth considering is the BAM B20 see review: http://airrifle.co.za/content.php?review.49

    Depends on the size of the lady, lenght of pull etc.
    Taller woman- Gamo CF30; Cometa 300 both +- R1500
    Slightly built- Norica Sport; Gamo 410 not sure of price.
    All the above rifles would be fine for plinking and FT and the CF30 and Cometa 300 would also be fine for hunting. Prices reasonable and quality good.

    Pity you say Hw is out of question - Hw30S would be ideal: 2.5kg, 8kg cocking effort and the "S" version has Rekord trigger.

    I am now starting to look towards a BSA Lightning or Supersport Carbine if I can find something like that in this country.

    Any of you that have comments about these guns?

    Give her the 400, i'll hate it to get beaten with a "cheap" springer!

    This will be for my sister not my girlfriend. I am hoping to get a S400K for my girlfriend.

    She (girlfriend) shot for the first time this weekend with my S400 and finished second (32/42) in the precharged HFT class.
