Scopes and ammo have quite a few for sale and I was wondering if anyone here has ever owned any?

It's quite difficult to find anything about these airguns online; it doesn't look like they're widely sold.

Any thoughts?

Here's an example:

Yes, I own 2 of their rifles, the long out of production Massimo, and the small, carbine sized Model 56. I don't know which of the current models are available where you are, but the Black Eagle is the better of the selection here. Most have a direct sear trigger, whereas the Black Eagle has the fully adjustable 'Spanish Rekord' trigger. Same trigger as my Massimo. Both of mine are fine, accurate shooters which are well worth their relatively low cost. The "Storm" is another with the adjustable trigger. RC

I've had a couple of Noricas over the years and for the most part they are decent rifles. I had a Norica Sport in .22 (similar to the 56) and it was a fairly basic gun but it still shot well. The only issue was the bore seemed a little oversized so it didn't like some of the pellets I fed it. I've had a Walther Jaguar (Norica Europa in a fancy target stock) for about 20 years now and it's still going strong without issue. I handled a friend's Marvic many years ago and it seemed like a good quality gun for the price.

Thanks guys. They sound pretty good. Scopes and ammo has a black eagle .177 for $299 which is a good deal. If it shoots even remotely close to a Weihrauch it might be cheaper and quicker for me to get it instead. After I get my PAL of course.

Don't know if you do any home tuning or any disassembly of your rifles. If you do, a special tool is needed to remove the trigger block and get at the mainspring of all Noricas. I made a couple of them, one of which I can send to you if you'd like to have it. RC

I've been looking at the Storm. No hands on, but according to the pics and comments it seems like a rifle for me.

It looks great. I wonder what the big differences are between the storm and black eagle. Both are very appealing to me.
