    Default What air pistol ?

    Hey gents
    I have a modified .20 TalonSS ( 1250 fps with JSB's and 980 fps with enjin 23.6grs). Lovely rifle but it plays havoc with my roof when I want to shoot rats.

    Now the question is:- what is a good compressed air or co2 pistol to use to nail those suckers out to 10 metres? preferablly a multishot. What pellet speed is the best (450 -500 fps??) Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

    thanx

    I've read a good review about a Crosman 357 on Pyramidair.com. They say for the price there's nothing to touch them. Fully adjustable sights, scope rails, 400+fps, ten shots single or double action.

    It all depends on how much you want to spend. PCP pistols is much much better but may still make dents in your roof. My Ranchero bought from Guido shoots 630fps at its min setting.

    Thanx Gents
    630 fps sounds about right. Ball are gone on the mods for the talon and I need my other kidney. I have no idea on pistol prices.How much does the Ranchero cost?

    cheers

    HAHAHAHA, you will need more than a ball and kidney for the Ranchero.

    I remember Boondock being very successful with his HW40 when hunting rats. I was looking for the photo's now, but couldn't find it. As soon as this cold weather is over,I'm going to rig my HW40 up with a laser sight, and then it will also see some rat hunt action.

    Prepare yourself for a bit of a shock.
    The difference between a Steyr and a Crosman is like comparing a Bugatti with a Chery.
    But I am sure Guido will give you a far better deal than importing at current rates.
    I sold my LP50 to a ratter and he was very impressed.

    I have tried with HW40 to shoot some rats... the accuracy is not problem but there isn't enough power to convince the rat to die instantly. they happened to perform break dancing for a while... i still perfer use rifle... Boom... no more dancing...
