    Will have to see manufacturers markings on the rifle. Can be Hatsan, or Bam or QB or Norica or Norinco.......
    Just a couple I can think of that might have been born with those ugly hard plastic stocks.

    It is a chinese rifle. I looked at 1 the other day.
    Could be from BAM or Xaoxing or SPA or Shanghai Air Rifle factory, anything.
    What didn't like on this rifle is that the synthetic stock is very hard and brittle which makes it prone to cracking.
    The 1 I looked at already had cracks all arounf the front and trigger guard screws, etc.

    Cheers

    For a few hundred bucks it might be a nice intro. But ideally keep your eye on the classifieds forum on this site. Good deals on there quite often. But that rifle will teach you the ropes

    hi guys,
    Someone is offering me a Gamo hunter 220 and a Slavia 618 for R2000.
    is it worth the price?

    What do you want to do with the rifle?

    If you want to shoot cans at 10m, then a cheap rifle is almost OK. If you want to challenge your shooting skills, rather save up and buy something off this forum. You will get honesty and good advice.

    Save your R2000 and wait.
