Need help from those who know !!!
After dismissing the Gamo's etc, I finally got my act together. I now have an choice of 3 guns.
I have seen and handled them all, and can't make up my mind. :;pat
Looks, power, etc. is not the issue here, only reliability and accuracy.
BAM40, BSA Supersport, Webley Xocet
Eisch, tough choice... Out of the 3 - an HW... hehehe
Thanks Guido... Fusius, your just confusing me further.
fixed barrel is more reliable than break barrel.
HW97 MKiii (not the same as HW97K) under lever = accurate + 930fps. Needs a scope - no open sights...
3 pence in the fountain.
I looked at the prices. For only a couple of bucks more than a BSA you could look at what 'huffnpuuf' has for sale.
Damn I wish I were here before I got lost.
BAM 51 with pump, eish
Made up my mind. I'm getting this tomorrow, best part is, it's not costing me any money at all, exchanged it for some work that I did. :jump3
This can be the case, particularly with the cheap end of the break barrel rifle market. But when you get to the higher quality rifles e.g Weihrauch, Theoben etc then the difference between break barrel and fixed barrel is negligible.

I picked up my BSA today. :love
Awsome !!! I'm realy happy with it.
I don't have a scope, so I just had a go with it using the open sights.
I couldn't wait, so I just grabbed a tin of pellets (Gamo match) and fired of a few shots in the backyard.
The pellets is probably a bit light for the wind we have today, but I still managed to get a 2cm grouping at about 17m.
Will see how it goes after I find the right pellets and cleaned the barrel (it seems a bit sticky)
Farmer , remember the old boer saying " beware of the man who only has one gun ! "
Go for it , enjoy it .
