I went out to the Port Hunter Field Target match this passed weekend and had a great time!!! I plan to upgrade/mod my Crosman for the next match in Elmira. However, I would like to look for a rifle that would be better suited for field target. I don’t have lots of cash but want to see what I can put together on a budget.

Several of the great people I met at the Port Shoot let me try out their rigs. I have to say that the feel of the springers just didn’t feel right to me. The QB79 I tried out really appealed to me though… What are your suggestions for a Budget FT - Learner Rig? I am thinking that a PCP is the way to go. Other that the classifieds on this great forum, where should I be watching for end of the season deals?

PM's are welcome

The QB series of rifles can be a great place to start. The modifications are endless and relatively inexpensive. I built a QB rifle to start shooting FT this year.
However, if you feel that you want to go the PCP route, the Benjamin Discovery would likely be your most practical place to start since it comes with the rifle and the pump for about $435. (scroll down)

You'll need to get your PAL license to own one, but that is a simple process, and will open up a lot of options for you.

best budget rifle is the QB for sure.. They can be tuned to be a real contender(accuracy and power).. If you decide to get a QB and you're in the Niagara area, shoot me a PM... We do alot of work on these rifles over here :wink:

Discovery all the way... I love mine and it is very accurate. I haven't shot a field target comp with it yet but it is a great hunter...

Check out this if you want more info on it.
