Hey folks, I'm in the market for a chinese spring piston rifle to add to my collection.
I'm torn between:
1. Artemis WF600 aka B3-4, https://airgunarcheryfun.ca/artemis-wf600-under-lever-air-rifle-22/ 152.25$
2. SPA B5-1 sidelever, http://www.canadashootingsupply.ca/spa-b5-1-22-cal.html 136.49$
Prices include taxes, both of them offer free shipping.
My intended use would be plinking/paper target and mice "hunting" around the farm.

If anyone have experience with those rifles, feel free to share.

Welcome to the forum.

No experience in either but both are good sellers and would not hesitate to buy from either one. I would go with the WF600. B5-1 is not only goofy looking it likely is not as nabour friendly when they see it. Other will chime in soon on how they shoot. I almost bought the WF600 but went a different route. CHEERS!

What he said.
Depends on what you already have too. are you wanting a underlever specifically?

I concur, with prior posts. Both of these seller are good to deal with. Answer their emails promptly.

Never used an under lever or side lever, so can't comment on them. But did buy a Artemis CR600W CO2 Air Rifle from Wes and very happy with it. I think most of the Artemis's he sells share similar parts.

I heard that someone has moded the B5-1 to look like an AK47.

Price is right on both.
