    It all depends on what you want to use the rifle for, what you like and dislike and finally your budget. Best is to go to a club shoot in your area and see what is available on the market. Many guys on here will tell you that they wish they did this before buying.

    As Lewis said, it all depends, especially on how much you are prepared to pay and what you are planning to do with the rifle, shoot Minahs around the house, Field Target shooting, etc.

    I got my BAM 51 a couple weeks ago and it?s my 1st PCP, I?ve a few Gamo and Norica springers, but there is really no comparison, since the PCP?s are absolute beauties when it comes to accuracy.

    The high priced PCP?s goes for R20k, where you could buy a BAM for less than R2k and a lot of people would advice you to rather buy a 2nd hand well known brand such as an AA 400 instead.

    Stick around for awhile

    As far as reliability is concerned Airrifles are like cars, if you dont check the fuel and oil it wont last long. At the end of the day you get what you pay for. I'm not saying all cheap rifles is cr@p, they might just require some work to make them shoot properly. I have a B3 rifle (cost R167.00) that now shoots on par with some big brand springers, BUT it took a lot of work and new parts to get it there.

    Bam, if you are going to shoot aften then i would sudjest an AA 400 or 410 even if second hand as the backup support from Louis and mike are the best in SA over any other brand.
