    Default New to Nitro Piston air rifles

    Hi guys ive been reading up alot about the Nitro Piston air rifles to be honest a week ago i didnt even know they existed , i has a PCP in 5.5 and sold it again due to all the niggles surrounding PCPs - like just wanting to go shoot something quickly and having to put air in first and just when shooting gets fun having to refill again - So now i found out about the Nitro Piston air rifles and the idea looks very interesting but my knowledge is limited so can someone please point me in the right direction - i had a look at the Artemis S1000 but if there is better out there or someone who wants to sell one in good condition please let me know ! And the other thing is 5.5mm better than 4.5 mm ?
    Thanks in advance

    I have the Artemis S1000 5.5mm and I've never been so satisfied with any other air rifle I've shot... I've put a Nikko Stirling Panamax 3-9x40 scope on it about 3 months back and it still holds 0 (I shoot at least 30-40 shots every day )... the gun is accurate, satisfying to shoot and problem free... I have the Hatsan 95 has ram convert which is also a pleasure to shoot... So there's 2 rifles with gas rams that impress more than any other air rifle I've shot

    Hi thanks for the reply , if i may ask what kind of groupings do you get and how far is the Artemis stil lethal on lets say rock pigeons ? What type of speed does it shoot out of the box and did you have it tuned at all ?
