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?
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.

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.
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!
