    Default Theoben Eliminator

    As the titles says, who owns one of these monster classics?

    If you had a chance to buy one, would you?

    What is their value in immaculate condition?

    Henry,
    I know of only one that whasw ever sold on this forum and it was owned by Guido.
    Absolute beaut of a rifle with very high power levels for a springer.

    These rifles are renowned scope killers, don't even think about mounted a scope without a damper mount.

    A word of caution though, to adjust the gas ram you need a very specific pump to set the pressure, so if that is not included in the sale, you would have to import
    one from Bestfittings in the UK, 85GBP Best Fittings - Airgun charging equipment - BEST Fittings - Theoben / Weihrauch HW90 Gas Ram Charging Pump (Slim Jim)

    The Weihrauch HW90 uses the same gas ram, but you can forget about getting one from them.

    Some more reading here :

    PS. Would I buy it? If the price was right, ABSOLUTELY.
    Having said that, what exactly is the right price? For me, if it was in very good condition with no leaks on the gas ram, considering it is most likely 12+ years old, no more than R5000.

    Thanks Tiaan!

    Mr H, I think Ambusher’s is a Crusader. A little less wild than the Eliminator.

    One thing to bear in mind, the original Theoben gas ram in their own factory guns is a serviceable unit (same with the HW90), not disposable like the after market struts.

    My Beeman RX-2 (aka HW90) is still going strong with original Theoben gasram, which was air filled, not nitrogen.
    Bot looking back I should've bought the Crusader instead of the RX-2....
    I think a mint condition Eliminator or Crusader could fetch as much as R7000 2nd hand.

    Thanks guys!

    Having handled and shot one over the crony all I can say is WOW!
    Really is a beast of a rifle, cocking effort substantial to say the least
    Bluing, fit and finish is probably the best I have seen on any springer.
    Trigger on the example I shot very good, predictable first stage and crisp second stage.
    Running at 920-930fps with 11.42gr H&N"s shot cycle is as to be expected quite brisk!

    Speaking about a HW90. I would not mind owning one. Get two barrels (4.5 and 5mm). Set the ram to sane levels and you have na nice setup
