News just in: James Owen who uses a MKONTO "IMPI" .177 springer has just been awarded his S.A Colours !!!!
Well done James !!
James Owen is Captain of the South African Schools 3 P Precision Postal Team competing against the NRA team at the Emerald Casino tomorrow.( PCP's)
The colours awarded are Black SANSSU colours.
SANSSU rules limit Springer rifles to a R2000-00 over the counter purchase price-- freely available --and be approved by SANSSU.This would exclude the IMPI from SANSSU competition.
Unlike you, you are nasty about a very well hand made air rifle, although a bit expensive. Something we South Africans should be proud of and show some support for. I handled one once and I found it to be very solid and well made, albeit my limited knowledge about springer rifles.
Have I stuck my neck out too far now?
sorry...it's ugly...if it looks like the one in the picture..
It looks too long , the stock looks outdated and the cheekpiece is too low for scope use.
It is probably very well made...I would hope so at the price.
It does not matter whether it is South African..
I am just airing my opinion.
Would anyone honestly buy one over an equivalent [in fact cheaper] Air Arms or Weihrauch springer?
so how much are they?
R5600 excluding VAT?
or R1800 over counter price?
re classification based on price..........imho, it will never work. eg 2nd hand prices/discounts/different suppliers/private import/DIY kits.........etc i mean from R6+k to R1800 that's a big jump........ pls correct me if i got it all wrong.
