Do you own one of these?
The only Air Rifle i own is a CFX .... nice entry level Rifle. I found it to be good value for money and i dont shoot competitivly so dont need top of the range Kit. I tend to spend more on my other weapons. I will however look at a PCP in the future and who knows where it will lead me. I have stayed away from trying a PCP ..... i know it will mean trouble and cost me a bunch..... LOL!
From what i read, the CFX has somehow a way you load the pellet directly to the barrel which the CF-30 doesn't have. I've got to use a block that pops up and load and press down, which I often forget: sort of dry fire. Appart from that, nothing. They use the same spring etc. Wish we could compare over a crono as to the 50 fps diffs.
We have conducted tests on Gamos.
We built a special recoilling bench to clamp the barrel action in.
The best cheaper guns would group 10 shots within 15mm at 10 metres--some.
The expensive ones within 6mm.
Gamos are classified as cheaper guns.
TX 200's and HW's are expensive guns.
Gamo's were the best of the cheaper guns.
The bench is available if you want to satisfy your curiosity.
the MV had a little to do with my decision, but i mostly liked the way it felt ... and the fact that it is a fixed barrel (personal preferance... based on rigidity)
The MV factor was more about flatter trajectory that killing power.. as i mostly plink and not hunt.
And the main reason was the realy cool NON functional muzzle brake .. lol... :toothless
It makes less noise than the 30-06 or SHOTGun when shooting the cats that steal my KOI around the house ...(joking)
Swannie, Importer, I would like to join if you guys are doing comparitive tests. I'll bring my CFX along. It would be quite interesting. Maybe we could also do a chrony?
About the trigger - I oiled it and it became much better. I am actually certain it would even be better with a slight bit of grease. Trigger action is also rough for me.
