so I put my Baikal IZH-60 for sale [ SP trade ]
and my QB79 is always breaking down on me so I'm shopping for a new airgun.
I want the best price combo and it has to be pcp or bulk co2 [like the QB79]
and I want something reliable so your input in needed.

I have a list, yes who does not. and I have a few dollars saved up.
in no paticulur order.

Hammerli AR20 FT /Unless I can find cheaper with no scope.
Benjamin Discovery /no pump [ doing a trade for a 4500psi tank ]
CZ 200 s /nice looking airgun and what I read its really good.
A new QB79 and swap my barrel and trigger and tank block to new one.

I have a very good Fitco scope and not really looking for a new one since the Fitco is a better scope then I'm a shooter. [ yes it's that good of a scope]
and I have a few co2 tanks to bulk fill. and the Benjamin Discovery can run on co2 so ........ :P

The CZ 200 would be my pick from your list Frank. I like the look of the Hammerli but have not yet tead anything about the gun.

I'm not up on the cost of the CZ but it seems to me that it must be priced close to the Hatsan AT - 44 and the BAM B50 / B51's both of which Sniper sells at great prices. I own both of these guns and they are both pretty much Tack Drivers. The Hatsan is about $100 more than the BAM but is crazy accurate right out of the box.

Cheers

DaveD :D

The B50/51 are pcp guns, copies of the Daystate huntsman. I think Marvin has a
200... you should contact him. 50/51's are usually PAL rated... there are some detuned
ones... but rare.

Frank, do a search on here for the AT 44 and you will see just how good they are. Excellent Value for Money at about $350. They come in a non-pal version and can be converted to PAL in literally 10 minutes .

As rick o'shea said the B50 and 51 are Pal rated pcp's and need a little work out of the box. There's a ton of info on them and even a pdf "bible" on tuning etc. Mine is a .22 which I bought for pest control. It shoots in the mid 800's.

For FT I prefer a .177 for sure which is what my Hatsan is.

Cheers

pal rated airgun's are not a problem I have my pol and waiting on my pal, they are slow.

I look at the AT44 and looks like a fine airgun lot's of parts out there to mod them.

but I'm currently looking at a Bam50 new and used. the Benjamin Discovery is out since It's a crossman.

so now since the price is right it's the BAM50 or AT44 <-------

I dit not get it yet, But I will Be getting it soon.
I was going to buy A Bam 50 but I decided that It was not for me
But The AT44 was a good chose but it's has too many after market parts
for it and that would have made me put more cash in it after I got it.

So I will be getting a Benjamin Discovery the part I don't like is that it
is made from crossman, I had problems with crossman but after 20 years
there quality should be better.

So I will Be getting a Benjamin Discovery.
