So, after a bit of a break, I am getting back into air guns.

I have a Xisico XS60C which I am selling to barbaras tomorrow because it uses co2, and I want to move to spring or pump guns, so I won't have to spend money on co2 or compressed air or anything.

Pistol wise I am after a Webley Tempest (as all of my pellet and bb pistols are co2 powered) and I cannot find a Canadian source for them and replicaairguns seems to be sold out of it.

Rifle wise, I am looking at a Bakial MP61 since it is a spring powered rifle and I love the look of it and it's not too expensive. I also can't find a Canadian source for this, and replicaairguns is also sold out.

I am coming to you guys now, to ask if you guys know any places to try?

Apparently the Tempest has been discontinued - so your only chance is to find a used one - good luck!

Should keep your others as spares. Spring guns can drive you a little batty. Broken springs, lose bolts and just odd ball things that make it not hit where you want till you figure out the problem. I flip back and forth a lot with my springers and it gives me a variety. Would get boaring shooting just one gun everyday.

Besides springers are not for everyone and you may not like them as much as co guns you are used to.

I thought The webley tempest is still being made in turkey but can be found used. Maybe this one is still available?

I don't think either the mp60 or 61 are being made anymore. The mp60 is more rare but mp601s are available used every so often. Just keep an eye out here and I'm sure you will see some posted for sale. Maybe post a wtb.

I have one spring rifle, which I got very cheap because it was used. However, the part of the sight that you adjust for elevation is missing, so it can only be used for shorter distances, which I shoot short distance anyways, but it just doesn't look good because it's noticeable that there was something there once before.

That's really the only reason I am looking for a new spring/break barrel/pump rifle.

Pistols on the other hand as I said are all co2, so it's between the tempest and the buckmark (the buckmark is much cheaper). I would prefer the tempest of course but if I have trouble finding one, I'll go with the buckmark.

I did contact the guy selling the tempest, hopefully it is still available.
