I'm an addict to quality workmanship no matter where I see it. Tools, cars, bikes, guns, whatever.

I grew up shooting simple cheap air rifles and always had loads of fun with them.
(except when I got shot right in the back by a buddy)

All grown up now I guess, a bit more mature I hope.

So I decided to treat myself to something I could only dream of owning... or even seeing years back.

Now, I don't know how to tune guns at all, and won't be doing too much to this one other than wipe some oil on it.
And I may ask dumb questions too.

I just like quality machinery and the relaxing mode I can get into shooting.
I just shoot paper these days too.

Anyway, that's me.

Steve

I too have the simplest tastes.....
A word of caution, don't store it in the plano case in direct contact with the foam. Slip it into a cloth sleeve to prevent rusting.

Well after having a really good close look at this awesome German one and a bit of shooting.

I actually like it better. It's a bit heavier and solid feeling, more like a real gun. Although maybe not so elegant as the Air Arms.
The metalwork I thought was a tad better on this German piece. Plus I like the blueing on it over the British Air arms.
all the steelwork is super really.

The stock on the Air arms is nicer and in walnut for sure, but everything else on this gun seems better to me. Just my opinion.

I would say the main thing I didn't like was all the different steps to cock the air arms rifle.
Sure, I know I would have gotten used to it but this German beast just speaks to me with solid quality.
They're both super nice really though.

Anyway I plucked and cut my foam in the case for it today, and the Air arms is going back.

Just need a little box to hold my 6 pellet tins, shooting glasses, some wrench's and oil.
Any ideas there?

Steve

Welcome to the forum Steve.

I think we can all identity with what you've said.
All of use had airguns as kids but would couldn't afford quality ones.
Now that we're adults we can actually afford quality airguns...
as long as it's okay with the wife [emoji16]
