Minnelli is Part of a Huge Corporation, That owns Brockock , Daystate etc...
Hence why they will only deal with U.S companies, who will then supply a FEW Canadian suppliers...at the exuberant prices...

Can you show us a reference that confirms this? Brocock, Daystate, and MTC was acquired around 2014 by the Diana Group (not to be confused with the German airgun brand), an Italian holding company that also owns Breda and Marocchi.

As I understand it, Minelli S.p.A. mainly deal with woodworking and I don't see any reference that says it's owned by the Diana Group.

You Want The Top Bollocks Out Of The Box .... AirArms S510 Fac , Walnut .22. I promise that You will not be disappointed.
You may get bored of the Laser accuracy, but the Finish and Smoothness will always bring you back.......also still a British Company.
Daystate also a wicked airgun , I have old Wolverine .30 and an Air Ranger .22, 50 FPE. Both manufactured in England, with detail and Craftmanship.......since selling out to Minnelli , Their quality of wood has downgraded, the prices have increased like crazy....
Not the Quality Arms That they used to be ....IN MY OPINION.

Also Have the Weihrauch 100, also a smooth rifle, nothing that you would not expect from the Germans. Again extremely accurate, of coarse. I prefer the feel /balance of the AirArms.....

So you're saying the AirArms is on par with the HW100 accuracy, craftsmanship and finish wise? How about that trigger?
I'm still dreaming about that Weihrauch trigger.

The S510 TDR that is supposed to be coming out would be the answer to my question.

Absolutely, Without a Question......Maybe even more Accurate
Sounds crazy it actually gets a little boring to shoot, Only thing you can do is make the Target smaller at Greater Distance , just for the challenge....
but even hitting thumb tacks at 60 yrds gets lame after awhile, that is why you purchase numerous rifles. You get what you Pay for, some a little more

I was only able to handle an HW once. Never got to launch a pellet from it though but I did dry-fire it. Nice trigger, really, but the owner already did some elbow grease treatment on it. Comparing the Teutonic pcp against its Brit equivalent (the AA S5 series), the former is a shade or 2 simpler in aesthetics and finish but it is really robust and solid.

Accuracy should be the same with probably a slight edge to the German brand due to its regulator. It has a longer barrel too.

The AA trigger is very nice. Mine improved even more when I polished its internals. I also adjusted it to get rid of the 2nd stage.

:shock: :shock: :shock: OMG that thing is gorgeous :!:

The HW100 I tried was the laminated thumbhole stock, it was gorgeous! It really wasn't "simpler" it was beautiful. But I think that TDR S510 is just perfect.

Definitely. Once you have established the gun will do its part you now have a platform to gauge how well you can do yours. 10m offhand and see how well you score. Humbling in my experience. Take the scope off and throw on a diopter. Try with irons. Many challenges to be had.

I think one of the reason I find the TDR so interesting, is that it reminds me a take-down spy-pistol set I had as a kid
