I has a few.

Current favourite is a 2013 that currently wears a rifled M4-177 bbl.

Definitely not a powerhouse, but keenly accurate. It really likes the JSB 8.4 domes. I don't have time to do all the shooting I should...

Does a 66 powermaster count? Not he same model #, but identical in every respect, if black nylon is your thing. Have one here that is decent on power. Bbl retainer could use a bit of help.

Then there's the nightmare- the brass plated self cocker with walnut finished hardwood. Could use just about new everything.
I really should get in a seal kit for it, but that'll be a post retirement project...

That's one of my favorite mods :) Mine is bone stock, but the 2014 do have a M4-177 rifled barrel, and also the pump tube. That tube has a bit more stroke, and it's good for about 22-25 more fps than the stock 760, using only stock parts. It really likes the 7.9 grains CP SuperMatch wadcutters, and also the JSB Exact RS 7.33 grains. I usually get half-inch groups at around 25-30 yards with those two pellets.

And why not include the 66 PowerMaster? It's in the same family, I see it as a more ''refined'' 760 8)

Thanks Murray :) The 760 has left a very deep impression on me in my youth, and it's became ''the obsession within my obsession''. I don't know of many other air guns that had such a long, uninterrupted production run, the only other one I know of is the Weihrauch HW35.
