Can anybody tell me how the QB79 rates as a budget PCP?
Me and some friends are trying to esablish a FT club down here in the SWD area. We got permission from the town council to use ,what was once a shot gun shooting range, as our range for now. In about 6 months time this range will then move to a huge farm. The reason I ask is that we want to get people involved in the sport and as such we are looking at purchasing afew of these rifle to be used as loan rifles by people. Most people down here use springers, but they want to get PCPs but don't want to spend the money at this stage, as there isn't any real clubs down here.
We have thought about getting afew BAM50/51s but for the price of 4 BAM's if have heard that we might be able to get between 6-8 QB79s. Is it worth going for the QB79s or should we rather opt for the fewer BAM50/51s? Plus nobody in my area want to really commit to a price on either rifle. I have prices ranging from R3200 - R5500 for a barebone (ie no scope) BAM 50 and R750 - R1200 for a barbone QB79. Have seem the QB79s for R850 on greatdeal, but I dont want to buy from them as so mony people have had bad experiences with them.
Any info would greatly be apprecaited.
