Im looking to buy my first pcp and was checking out the s200 but wanted to get your opinion first tnx
triger happy.First pcp.
Be realistic with what you want to spend.
TRY BEFORE YOU BUY !!!!!!
The 200 is nice for a smaller built guy.The 400 if way better for big guys.
BSA Scorpion is ok buy after sales service in SA is bad.
FX pcp are a lot of cash and offer little over the s400 for FT
Wheirauch HW100 is a high quality solid gun.Bit heavy.Available in 12 ft/lb and high power.
Best backup currently is on th AA range of guns.
If you want a race gun and have the cash to spend EV2, Walther Dommie and Steyr LG110 are all superb guns .
It is almost enough for an S400. My suggestionis, save a littlebit longer, and buy the S400. I went the same route.
I started of buying an S200, and was so impressed with it's accuracy, but the size of it was a bit small to my liking. Then I shot with an S400 for the first time, and oh my goodness, it was love at first touch. In my oppinion, no comparisson, The S200, is built for kids, and in that respect, it is unrivaled. The S400, on the other hand, is excellent falue for money (the best there is), and built for addults. It also feels like a real rifle, and have the quality and finnish to go with it. In my oppinion, the most beautifull PCP that there is. The accuracy, is legendary, and it ranks among the best.
Due to stupidity, I sold my first S400, and regret it ever since. I was lucky enough to win another one, at last years SA Benchrest championship, and would never part with it again. (Thanks Air Arms South Africa, for the sponsor)
If you learn to shoot within the sweet spot area of your S400, then you can compete with any racegun, there is. It's been proven! Even a good second hand one, is better than a S200. You should get one at around R 5000.00 - R 6000.00
