    Thank you.

    I would advise you to go visit Oom Piet and get to shoot a couple of guns and get a "feel"
    for them.
    Then decide.
    Oom Piet and Tannie Bets are on the forum here.

    Hello and welcome.

    First off , don't be in a hurry to buy an air rifle , take your time to look at the many options that are available , they come in all price ranges.

    Kuber's advice is good , take it.

    Also don't be influenced by the "POWA" beastie , very , very few powerful air rifles are also accurate.

    Then there is the choice of Springer versus PCP.

    Have fun deciding.

    Cheers.

    Miles knows a bit about air rifles and Miles likes them Hatsan's REVIEW - HATSAN Galatian 14 Shot Air Gun - YouTube

    Follow the advice of the good forum peeps and take your time looking feeling before you buy and don't let your ears out to them 'powa' mongers, a gazillion feet per second air rifle is useless if it can't put pullets where you want them..

    My detuned Noblesse bullpup was awesome - no reason why the grandeur wouldn't be the same they do tend to be hot as hell out of the box though!

    Have not went and shoot a couple of pellets yet. Will be going to the shooting range in centurion and shoot some tomorrow. But i must admit it is a good looking rifle and i like the 10 shot magazine. The lady mentioned that they are quite powerfull. She recommended that i use the 33grain pellets.

    Mine was set to shoot 18grain JSB's at 850fps. Gave many more shots per fill, was consistent and a laser gun hopefully you can get a chrono to test yours, but heavy pellets to knock the velocity down are not automatically gonna make it accurate with them unfortunately - if it's spraying those despite an apparently good velocity, don't assume there is something wrong with the barrel odds are, like many guns, it just doesn't like those monster pellets.
    If that's the case, get Kevin or Nick or Jaco etc to give it some TLC and you'll be amazed at the very different, epic gun you get back

    Thanks for the advice Macros. She also gave me some 18.13grain pellets as well. So will try both of them tomorrow and see which ones gives me the best results and stick with those ones then. Still need to set the the scope in though.

    Cool. Let us know how it goes. Will likely shoot those 18's too quick as is, but they're usually the best or close to it once the beast has been tamed a bit. Cheers!

    Kuberboef sorry for asking a dumb question, but when you say take it to tuner so that they can set it up properly. What do you mean by that and what does the tuners do to the rifle?
