took my diana to the range this morning...........after a quick zero @ 30m, i went through the same club shoot course we did last weekend. the result........half of my pcp score. eeish!!!
never the less, it reminded me how i got into airgunning in the first place, and how critical proper techniques are required to pull off a shot with a springer. with springer HFT on the horizon, i'm excited......i think by shooting a springer regularly it can only improve my shooting skills/techniques.
just looking at what's available out there................i don't think one can do much better than either TX200HC or HW97K. anyone with experience of both? from what i gathered from the uk forums........the TX200 is better outta box, but the 97k has better tuning potential. i've only shot the TX200 in FAC, beast of a springer and accurate too. off the bench, sub 10mm groups @ 25m was like the norm. i've only handled the 97k at the shop, oh plus one shot into the phone book unscoped . oh yes there's always the P.S. hmm.......
i see leupold and nikko nighteater do a fixed 12X scope, anyone know if they are springer rated.
