HPA regulated / useable 50 shots @ min 16ft lbs max 20ft lbs
(You really shouldn't have to fill your gun during a match)
On board air pressure gauge
adjustable match trigger
.177 LW or HW barrel with min 1" group accuracy @ 55 yds
The only rifle on the market right now that is 'close' to my requirements is the RWS/Hammerli 850 HPA conversion custom built by the 850Store but it runs $705 and doesn't have an adjustable stock or a match trigger.
I wonder if an Airforce Talon @ $540 might fit the bill ?
or can a Hammerli Pneuma @ $360 be detuned to do what I want , except it has no gauge ?
finally the new Hatsan AT44PA claims 50 useable shots shots per fill @ 22 ft lbs for only $400
I guess I'm asking too much of the industry .....
at least for right now.
BUT if we are to properly grow the sport of FT , there really needs to be a rifle available which is affordable for the young to join in and shoot competitively along side the big / expensive 'elite' guns.
Not everybody can afford USFT's, LG's, FX Royale's , TM 100's or FWB's which seem to be the only choices which fit the above criteria.
Your thoughts ?
Continued safe shooting.
