    Default PCP . What will you buy with a R20000 budget?

    Hi all,

    I am new here . I am looking for a pcp air rifle and I am lost .

    My budget excludes the scope . I cannot decide fx wildcat ,Fx streamline ,Benjamin etc.

    The streamline looks like low capacity of shots that can be taken . The wildcat seems you need to add stuff to make it a “ perfect” rifle.

    i will be target shooting and PC . Accuracy at 50 meter critical and penetration equally important.

    any suggestions will be welcomed even if it is a different make .

    In that price range the RTI Priest is the best.

    It depends on what you want to do with the rifle.

    If you want great VERSATILITY, buy a Daystate Pulsar in 4.5.

    You have different power settings from 12 fpe upwards - instantly available. On the HP setting, a 10.5 grain pellet set at 900fps will do 'what you need to' at 50m. More accurate than any operator will ever be.

    There are a couple up for sale right now, and negotiable towards your budget.



    5.5 is nice for a while, and then you realise that you are limited in its application.

    The FX streamline 5.5mm is a very nice rifle, and has a very good shot count and it isn't very heavy. It will also be easier to shoot of a bench that the wildcat.
    You can also have a look at the Brocock bantam. They are nice, but not sure if they are still under 20k

    I can only highly recommend the Streamline. Light, balanced, stunning trigger and awesomely accurate.

    I have the Wildcat and the Crown which are great too. For the price though, the Streamline is by far the best value.

    I’m an FX fanatic but don’t dismiss an AirArms 510. Older technology but still one of the best stocks ever made. I

    I think mos rifles in the R20 000 price range will be good enough to use for what you plan on using it for... so take into consideration the look and feel of the rifle before u pay 20 grand for a gun that you can't comfortably use

    If I had to only have one rifle to use for target shooting and field use, the Streamline. The Wildcat is fantastic in the field but not the best for bench rest shooting. And the Wildcat is a good R7000 more.

    Hello Kurt,

    FX wildcat has very good in accuracy ( same as all FX smooth twist barrel) and also light weight , easy to carry in the field etc.. however the it has some issues like regulator creep, trigger linkage breaks after 500shorts, smooth twist barrel get wear and tear soon compare to rifle barrel. It required bipod to shoot accurately.

    Please go for Kalibrgun or any other rifle barrel PCPs.

    thanks,

    RTI, Daystate, kalibrgun, FX.... They all OK, BUT nobody has mentioned Brocock.... Especially the latest models. Have a look there too. There was a major comp that was recently beat by one of them after all......

    I am also looking at this budget(plus minus) but I want at least(or damn close to 60 fpe). The FX rifles are around 40 fpe... I think the ideal rifle would be the daystate redwolf but talk about a budget breaker ;p
