    Default Chosen Field Target Setup

    So, I have decided to get rid of all excess weight in Airguns and get something decent for Field Target.

    What I wanted is a setup that is as ajustable as possible and Regulated. Looked at all the options available and decided (after the cost calculated to get the rig "lefty friendly") on the Ataman M2S FT.

    They come in walnut and red laminate, so chose the least expensive one, which is walnut as my budget is only that big. Cant wait for it to arrive!

    Lets just hope it shoots as good as I hope it to shoot. (Otherwise Ill have a very expensive paper weight)

    I will post a pic or 2 when it arrives...just because I can...[emoji1]

    Who are the local agents?
    Can you service this yourself or is there someone local that can do it?
    Looking forward to seeing this on the circuit, don't think there has been one in SA yet.

    It is basically the Daystate Tsar. So I think Wyan would be able to service it in the long run If I am not mistaken. He can correct me if Im wrong. Eugene from Airgunnut is the importer.

    Other way around, the Tsar is an Ataman M2S

    Wow lovely rifle! Nothing is light really once you start adding a Scope that weighs a kilo and a Sidewheel and scope caps and turrets and levels and mounts and pointer and windicator and silencer etc... what is your goal weight for the setup and why choose the Ataman over something like a Steyr that is also pretty light?

    Not being critical just intrigued!

    Because, spanner, a very good spanner to be sure, but still just a spanner.

    one mans spanner is another mans art.

    its all down to what you like. If you don't like it you wont shoot it. After spending that much money on toys you better like it.

    The Ataman shoots really nicely. I have personally shot a silhouette comp with one in February and it is really very accurate! It was amazing to see.

    There are tiny differences that Daystate made to the Tsar which makes it easier to shoot than the Ataman, but nothing you can't fix.
    I found the cheek piece to be a bit short but manageable. This was on the Walnut stock one.

    If I could give you a tip, especially for the M2. Get an air stripper. It has a nasty barrel flick on it and the Air Stripper (which comes standard on the tsar) really takes care of that.

    I hope you get it soon and have many happy shots with it.
