Well after many months of creeping this forum i finally decided to join haha and ask a question!.

Ive been shooting for 6 years now and im looking for a rifle that will better challenge me and well shoot more accurate. I will mostly use this rifle for target shooting and maybe some field shooting as well. Something that groups constantly and will allow me to be the weak link in poor grouping, if that makes sense. Power for the rifle wont really matter, ive always used co2 or pcp.
i
Hope maybe you guys can shed some suggestions on what i should shop for!

You'll never go wrong buying a German or English product but you'll pay for it. The Turks make some really nice affordable products but you might have to polish things to get true proformance out of them.

It going to come down to " how much your will to spend"!

Thanks for the advice, i have a budget of about 650 to spend for the rifle. I just test drove a cometa lynx and i liked the gun, accurate and felt great. But im open to suggestions. Im thinking german or english my self.

I strongly suggest a Weihrauch M97 Blackline in .177 - $550.00 from D&L. The beech or laminates are over your limit. I own the Blackline and love it, just returing fomr a rat shoot where I dusted off about 80 of them with that rifle to 54 yards- most were sub 40 yards. At 25 yards, my rifle puts Predators or Cometa 4.51mm RN's into sub 2/10" groups. It will be my indoor silhouette rifle this winter. It currently is running JSB 8.44gr. pellets at 872fps for 14.25fpe.

I can tell you what not to buy, a cheap break barrel springer like a Stoeger X5.
Okay I know somebody out there who loves his X5 will soon post a reply telling us his opinion but I have one and it proves you get what you pay for. I often find that low end sprinters have a lot of vibrations. They "sprong" when shot which requires a light artillery hold.

Let us know what you decide to buy because I may buy the same. I'm always interested in buying another airgun.

I took a look at that gun and it looks pretty sweet, havent had a chance to test drive one but i noticed its out of my range because i dont have my PAL

With a NON-PAL HW97 in mind, later on, when you get your PAL a simple test a simple spring change and you have a 50 yard rat smacker.

That makes sense.. I took a similar rifle for a test drive this morning at a friends house and it was grouping tight. What spring change could i do after i get my PAL? (its on my to do list)

When buying Turkish guns remember you'll get no warranty, no matter what the manufacturer claims.

I would look at a Weihrauch 95 97 or 98, can't go wrong with any of them.
