Yes indeed. I wouldn't mind having a go of one but if I do invest anything into this idea, maybe it will just be $80 or so in a NXG or a 2100 which is not so much if I then hate it.
As far as single strokes go, there is the 753 but the reviews aren't great for $300. Other than that, I am now researching cheapo Crosman gas spring rifles for something a bit different from a steel springer...


What's not great on the 753?

I don't really know it at all so just going by the Pyramyd reviews. Seems it's okay but some claim the trigger is not all that great for a target rifle.

Thanks TriggerH - I am thinking about those too, Woody pm'ed my a couple of days ago.

The trigger is the weak spot but can be worked on and they are very accurate. A bit too light for my taste though.

This thread got me to thinking about my Crosman M4-177 that I thought could not hit a barn door at 25 feet. So I never really shot it since I bought it nearly a year ago. After a sore palm and 4 hours of shooting I am getting it dialed in. I thought it needed a new barrel but it turns out it was me not the gun. Got a few ideas to get it dialed in better hopefully. CHEERS!

lol~ it looks likely exactly talking about my HW45 ~ If not the reviews and reputation of this gun are soooooo good, I think I was cheated ~

After a whole weekend and more than 500 pellets (I suspected it would be about 700 pellets as I empty 1 new 250 tin, and 3 not very full small tins...), I got sore palms, painful finger tips ( I think it's caused by non stop picking up pellets and put it into the breach... becaused in the break time of shooting the HW45, I shot the HW40, another more than 500 pellets on it....)... I can get my pellets on the targets ( at least I know where is the pellet after I pulled the trigger now....[emoji29])

First got back into pellet guns again I almost bought a Weihrauch HW 45 Black Star. Decided against it because I am not really a pistol guy. I like my scoped pellet rifles.

Love my 392, now saying that I don't shoot it all the time. Springers are my favourite. I like guns that don't require an external power source. (C02, HPA).
Don't get me wrong I have many C02, HPA guns but the ease of shooting pump guns and springers just makes it simple. Gun/pellets that's it.
I would go with the 392 over the 397 more stopping power!
I sold my 1400 a few months back but now regret it, I guess its what you grew up with.

I'm a fan of the Daisy 880. Cheap at $50 US, but hard to find in Canada. Mine has about 20,000 bbs through it, (courtesy of my neighbour's grandson) plus several thousand pellets. That pump arm must have cycled at least 100,000 times. The gun still looks, operates, and shoots like new. It still will shoot dime size groups at 20 meters with pellets. 4 pumps=500fps, 6 pumps=600fps, 10 pumps=720fps (with 7.0gr pellets). I mostly shoot it at 4-5 pumps. Much easier to pump than any Crosman.

Forgot about my Daisy 856 until I read the last post. It's so light and can be pumped with 2 fingers!!!, and shoots pellets around 650 fps. Very light ones very close to or into 700fps!
The funny thing is it feels and looks like a toy gun.
