    mmm... very subjective question. If I had no rifles and I wanted to start out with a springer but cant afford a TX200 or hw I would buy a 40 no question. definately 3rd place in my opinion once you have cleaned it up a bit. And here I am refering to what you get for the $$. It would be better than a CFX for instance. That said. I doubt I would swap my cfx for a B40 atm as she is shooting so sweetly. If I wanted to shoot FT I would buy a s400 and not a bam. If I wanted an affordable rig for hunting then I would buy a 50 no question. not sure the 51 has a place in my cuboard.. Maybe at the same price as a 50 yes.

    Silo, what would the 40's go for? I think it, now that the others are so expensive, may be a good alternative for someone starting out.

    I think the question is for what.. I would buy a 50 if I could not afford a s400 no question. But if I could afford a S400 I would ratehr buy that. So... In the right conditions I would buy any one of the above. But not now as I have already got rifles that performs the function I require.

    An S400 shouldn't be compared to a BAM 50/51. They are two completely different rifles with completely different purposes. BAM 50/51 should only be compared with FAC rifles and the closest comparison would be Daystate.

    To be honest i would have no need for a bam other than to play with it.At the asking price I dont think it would be worth the effort.

    I have always wanted a Bam 40 to see how it compares to a TX200.After talking to one of the Cape guys about his bam I dont think I will get 1.At 3.5 - 4K I will not buy a gun with questionable build quality.
