Hey guys!
I need some help making a decision on another air rifle. I'm considering on getting a pair (one for the wife and one for me) of 1250 Dominators and was wondering if they are worth the money,or scrap the idea. Is it better to consider the Marauder instead? Please chime in with your wisdom and knowledge of actually owning one or the other :D . It's been awhile since I have added an Airgun to my collection,and the wife wants his and hers airguns 8) ! How can I not obliged to her request :wink: .

Haven't shot one myself, but have heard mixed reviews. The trigger pull is very heavy at 4.5 lbs, not sure if it can be reduced. Also, it asks for a fill of 300 bar, which is quick high and hard to fill to. In that price range, there's also this one:

Seems like quite a rifle. A member here just got one, and we're just waiting for his accuracy tests. I've seen some results online, but would like to gather more info before fully recommending.

One thing you should be conscious of when buying his-and-hers air guns is the weight. These PCPs weigh in at around 10+ lbs. when scoped (some weight that much without a scope). Unless you're shooting strictly bench, that's pretty heavy for many women.

she usually shoots off of the bench. shooting sticks for standing. trying to find a good fit for her as she is used to the .22 rimfire.

If you post your price range and needs (calibre, single / multi shot, weight restrictions etc), we can probably help you make a better choice.
