    Default Slavia or Gamo?

    Hi all,

    Ok, decided to buy a better air rifle, had enough of the Ultratechs'.

    I phoned aroun and for what I can spend (1K) I can get a CZ model 630 or for R500 more a Gammo model 730.

    Any suggestions or recommendations on what to buy in this price range?

    Thanks.

    Can't find a model like that either, will give them (Blau Meul) in Alberton a call again and make sure about the model.

    But besides the point any recommendations on what to buy in the 1K to 1.5K price range?

    Frederick,
    based on your post it looks like you stay in Alberton (Blou Meul), I also stay there.
    With airguns you get what you pay for and buying a 2nd hand GOOD QUALITY airgun could make a huge difference. Try Blou Meul, Champs and even Target Specialists in Boksburg and ask them about 2nd hand Airguns. Be specific otherwise they will try and sell you the junk !
    The CZ is also better known as the Slavia, but that's about all I know about it. Go here http://www.aftsa.co.za and click on the links page, you will get various links to manufacturers. Go and have a look and then decide what you need / want. Most Gunshops will go out of there way to sell what they have in stock, whether it is the best choice or not ! When you walk in there you must already know what you want and the details about it.

    I had the same problem with a Gamo 1000. I upgraded to a S400 and bought my daughter a S200(Both Air Arms P C P). As Niel said, "you get what you pay for". You will not get the same accuracy from a "break- neck" spring rifle as from an "under- lever" and not nearly the same accuracy as from a P C P, unless you get a specialist gun and spent the same type of money as you would on a P C P. Please don't fall for the 1200ft/sec. rumours you hear at flee markets either. You don't want to shoot more than about 800ft/sec. if you want accuracy. What you had is good for hunting but no good for accurate target. or Field Target shooting. I lurned the hard way, like most of us.

    The Norica West Break Neck Spring Piston Air Rifle is very accurate (if you know how to shoot a springer).I have put Pellets through the same hole at 15M and lets just say my shooting skills are not wonderfull.I would love an Air Arms S400 but the prices are redicules(so is my spelling)

    Expensive the S400's are, worth it they also are. Looking at the prices, just take a look at the other PCP's on the marked and then you'll see that the S400 isn't that expensive...
    Also understand that you pay for what you get ! When looking at accuracy you can't compare the Norica West to say a HW97 or TX200, both these guns will outperform the Norica in every way imaginable, but then they are also more expensive than the Norica.
    Speed trap that Gerrie is talking about - Fully agree
    When most manufacturers say 1000ft/s they forget to tell you that accuracy was not of importance while testing and that the weight of the pellet was about 5-6grains...When they say 1000fps expect about 750-850fps in the real world.
