    Default New or secondhand?

    Hi there,

    I would like to know if I can buy a PCP secondhand or should I rather go for a new one?

    thanks

    Second hand is the way to go if you can't afford new
    I have found that new or second hand they need to be serviced and tuned
    Then set up for yourself and the ammo you going to use
    Good luck

    Secondhand, from a reputable person on this forum is the way to go.

    Don't buy junk. Do your homework first to see if the gun fits what you intend doing with it.

    There is no cut n dried answer to this. It always depends. Depends on who the seller is, depends on which airgun. I have bought second hand airguns on here that are miiiiiiles better than factory. There are airguns that I would only buy new. There are airguns you could not pay me to own.

    Buy second hand. Send it to Scout Sniper for a service. For less money you get a better shooting rifle.
