I had been looking at various rifles including some of the gas powered ones.Personally I just don't like gas guns. I know they are just as powerfull (or even more) and much more accurate,but you need to refill them all the time and take a huge diving cilinder with you to the hunting farm!
I have recently purchased a Hatsan 55. It came complete with riflebag,Nikko Stirling Airking telescope,400 bullets and even a hunting cap! All this for only R1290.00! That's less than $110 us dollars!
I love the look of this rifle. It's body is constructed from turkish walnut and this looks like a real gun I do say! I realy don't like these sentethic bodies you find on so many of the new rifles.
And don't get me started on the power. With the Crosman Premier 10.5 grain pellets, it goes straight through a plate of zink metal (this material is used for shack roofs etc). It also flies trough a phonebook and a 2.5cm (1 inch) thick plate of presswood!
And it is accurate enough allright. I shoot a 1cm(half an inch) grouping with ease at 30 feet.
I have been to a local dealer and tested the Gamo CFX. This rifle cost double the price and didn't come with anything. I was unimpressed. At 15 feet I couldn't seem to get a decent grouping!
Sure you get some rifles like BSA (to name only one) , that are better, but for 5 times the price!
I love this gun and if I ever want to upgrade, it would be to the model 125 or maybe the BSA Lightnig XL.
