    @ 10 yards yes, for more precise work, save your hard earned cash and buy something more substantial like a PCP, you will have muuuuuch more satisfaction ito accuracy @ long range shooting :bowdown

    How much are you willing to spend on a new rifle and scope?
    If we know that we will be able to make some recommendations.

    Hi Wesley. Just as those B2 airguns were hitting the market a few years back I bought one. I'm lucky if I can hit a beercan with it at 10m. Yet, I have a mate who bought the same thing and is pretty happy with his purchase (for the type of shooting he does). For R800 you can probably pick up a Gamo somewhere (mod 610/640) or maybe even a 2nd hand BSA Meteor. Perhaps scope included for that price.

    For R800 bucks you can get a Industry brands B78 with a 4X20 scope (same as me). It works on the same CO2 canisters that CO2 pistols work on. Practically no recoil and it is very accurate up to 15M (Probably more, but that's pretty much the limit of my ability at the mo). I can definately recommend this gun.

    DO NOT BUY FROM GREATDEAL THOUGH!! You can see from the link in my signature that bad service is common with them.

    I'm not sure where you can get it. Any suggestions everybody? I suggest you get in touch with Warrick (apsa@the-it-guy.co.za) I'm sure he'll be able to help you.

    Don't buy that gun, it needs a lot of tuning. The B1's are not very reliable and you WILL buy a better rifle within a few months. I would suggest you save for a while longer and rather get an Ultratech combo or better still is to go to a shop like Target specialists where you can look at what is available and get decent advice.
