There's no European quality in these big box store rifles... but they're not bad shooters, either! Recrowned... Polished... Lubed... Tins after tins, I finally able to smooth out all of them... Now everybody in the house has one rifle to enjoy! :drinkers:

You have assembled a very nice collection of rifles there!
At least some of the fun is in tuning and polishing.
But, I have to say honestly, a fine rifle like a HW97 would put them all to shame - it's just worth it to spring for a high quality rifle, at least one. :drinkers:

Yeah... As I am pretty a newbie in the hobby and luckily started my rifle collection with a HW30s as I was lack of knowledge and skill to tinker the guns and afraid of ruining them.

And I looks go straightly to this route with a 35e, a FWB300 and then a Pro Sport... In the half way I bought (tried) a nice European Norica Black Eagle, but still not matching the quality and good design of those famous brand names...

Quality over Quanity.

Everybody in the end puts alot of money into cheaper airguns trying to make them shoot better. When they should just spent the money in the first place.

A nice collection, and you're obviously in the airgun groove. :twisted: There are lots of people who really enjoy buying cheaper airguns and tuning them into great plinkers - You're certainly not alone is that is your thing, and really, if you're plinking a 10-15 metres. you really don't need anything more exotic.

Having said that, It looks from your photo that you've got ten metres and then a whole lot more behind that. When you're ready to move your range out to 50+ metres, that may be the time to think about selecting an airgun truly built to shoot well at those distances.

Happy plinking (or whatever may follow) :D

And welcome to the forum, by the way. You'll never find better airgun friends than your fellow members here on CAF.

Cheers.

As long as you enjoy them then it don’t matter, as for myself I learned long ago just to buy the best if you have have some disposable income.
I would buy the less expensive only to sell them and end up buying the better stuff and this goes for everything not just your hobby.

Enjoy

The only thing better than an HW97 in a spinger, is two of them.
Top one, .177, bottom .22.
Of course, 4 would be even better.
