Very nice collection.

I am trying to stay away from Chinese guns now. Even though I have tuned them to shoot OK. Just find the constant need for adjustments is such a pain. I am getting lazy I guess.

Can definitely understand that. I try to keep an open mind when it comes to airguns and usually end up happily surprised. Higher end PCPs are made to be accurate out of the box and I find that boring after a while. Don’t get me wrong I love my FX, but sometimes I find it more rewarding to get quarter inch groups with my springers or tuned lower end PCPs

I’m new and sort of don’t know what I’m looking at but I’ve been admiring your collection. Great photography, and aesthetic. I like the variety, you don’t seem beholden to a brand or technology. I’ve thought of getting a nitro piston rifle, your F11 is real attractive. I’ve started looking at availability. Thanks.

Thanks ! I primarily love rifles (not just air rifles) because they are a beautiful display of engineering. Turns out they are also very fun to shoot with !
The F11 really is a great gun. I actually got it as a replacement for a broken Crosman Phenix. Nitro piston is really quiet and the gun is surprisingly accurate and easy to handle. And as a bonus, lots of upgrades available.

Healthy addiction... Nice collection. Been eyeing a crown for some time. Have no real need for it but just so nice in forest green laminate.

Thanks for sharing.
