Out of the airguns you have owned what would your top five ( you don't have to stop at five ) be in order of preference?

1) FX Tarantula .177

2) Logun Domin8or .22

3) FX Cyclone .22

4) IZH-46M

5) AA S400 Classic ( have owned the xtra and carbine but liked the classic much better )

I have owned a bunch of springers but think they pretty much suck

top 5

December 26 2006, 9:47 PM 

1) FX Tarantula .22

2) AA Pro Elite .22

3) R7

4) Walther LGR

5) R1 .22

# 1 is great for any task, hunting, plinking, target shooting, whatever, it will do it. The other .22's are lots of fun for hunting, but both are big, heavy and difficult to cock for lots of plinking. The R7 comes out whenever the wife or the nephews or just about anyone wants to shoot. The LGR is great for indoor target shooting.

top 5 for fun

December 26 2006, 10:08 PM 

My best rifle over all was the 410e. Great trigger. Incredible accuracy. But PCP's are not pellet guns ;0 So...
For a day of airgun fun my line up would be.
HW30 AW .22
Areon B96
Slavia 622
Beeman Bearcub (Webley Vulcan on steriods).
When I want to shoot powder velocities I shoot stuff that costs alot less for equal quality than what PCP's do.

December 26 2006, 10:10 PM 

I don't know if I've had 5 but I'll just through in my last couple that I've shot.

1) RWS 94 .22 caliber (my champ!)
2) Crosman 2289 (good little gun)
3) Remington Genesis (back up springer, but not too bad at all)
4) DAQ LightSporter (Eric's only small bore LOL! I love this gun though)
5) Bill from OKs R7 and his R9 they were both extremely accurate and fun to shoot....I'll always remeber popping a couple ballons at 140yds with the R9.. Thanks Bill for sharing your guns and you hospitality.

December 26 2006, 10:20 PM 

it's hard to narrow it down to five, but I'll take a shot at it.
1> Whiscombe JW-80FB
2> FWB 300S
3> BSA Hornet (rifle- not carbine)
4> FX Timberwolf
5> AA TX200 prepped for FT.
a few honorable mentions- because I couldn't resist:
Mac-1 QB-22 with the full monty of Mac-1 goodies/enhancements.
My own tuned R-9's in .177, .20 and .22. These guns never fail to please.
BSA Spitfire in .22... this one shoots alongside match rifles. It was tweaked by Adrian at Stalker Airguns and is one serious shooter.
BSA Lightning XL. I'm likin' this puppy. Short, handy and pure business.
AA S200 B... pretty accurate and fun to shoot
Falcon FN-19 w/ walnut skeleton stock.

December 26 2006, 11:08 PM 

*1.Air Arms 400 erb .177 (Accurate and powerful)

*2.Benjamin Pumper .177 (Rock solid transition years model. This is a no nonsense, low maintenance [read: no rust to worry about] gun and I like it very much for that reason.)

*3.Beeman P3 .177 (tried several pistols and this one is my favorite)

*4. RWS 24 in .22 (simply my favorite open or peep-sight rifle to plink with)

*5. Slavia 634 .177 (great open-sight all-arounder; ample power to hunt, smooth firing cycle and easier to carry/point than the longer less powerful 631)

These are the five I've kept so they must be my favorites.

*Honorable mention: Daisy 853 (accurate and quiet, a blast to plink with)

Looking forward to getting a Weihrauch AW HW30s in .177 soon and I'm sure it will make the list too. It should have the great plinking characteristics of the RWS 24 but unlike the droop laden RWS 24, be easily scopeable. The AW (All Weather) stainless should prove to be a low maintenance finish. It may bump my RWS 24 off my top 5 list!?

My 2 Cents Worth:

December 26 2006, 11:28 PM 

1. (tie) Bestuned Air Arms TX-200 (.22). This gun is butter smooth and a sheer joy to shoot. Very nice squirrel gun and nice looking too.

1. (tie) Jan Kraner tuned Air Arms Pro Elite (.22). This gun behaves very well for its power level and is a terrific hunting gun.

3. Beeman P3 pistol (.177). I've got a red dot on this pistol and it's just way too easy to hit what I'm aiming at with this combo.

4. Bestuned FWB 124D (.177). This gun is very light and easy to carry around. I've been impressed with it so far.

5. Crosman 600 Pistol (.22). This semi-auto is a lot of fun to shoot because the .22 caliber really makes the cans dance.

Here's mine

December 26 2006, 11:38 PM 

R9 Two of them, .177 and .22 Versatility to the max
HW77 Old style Fast and accurate
R7 Sweet if treated well, it's not a magnum
Webley Tempest It won't break and if I hit something it is a big cause of excitement.
I have and have had several others but these are the ones I keep and would have to replace if lost or stolen.
I am soon going to own a Walther LGV so I may have a sixth to add to the best five

The Typhoon...

December 27 2006, 12:18 PM 

Not, the Typhoon dident make it..

Its really a nice rifle but it does have some quality issues and I cant say its a better rifle the more expensive Cyclone.

The FX2000 is also a diffrent breed, with a fit and finish far ahead of the budget Typhoon.

The Ultra from BSA is a rifle that really suits me and its the model I like best based upon my own personal preferences.

Then there are two "slots" left and those must be for springers...*LOL*

I still have my Typhoon but its in pieces right now with some parts sent to FX for a total makeover..

December 27 2006, 7:11 AM 

Being pretty new to the pleasures of airguns, I can just barely list 5 but here's what I've got in some sort of order:

AA 410ERB (My first PCP, all of 1/2 yr old now)
Mountain Air MA1320 (This thing's a pleasure to shoot, especially as a carbine with a stock)
AF TalonSS (Just got it, so far so good and it looks great with my AR15)
B26 (My first air rifle, predates the 410 by only a couple of months)

The only way I can get to 5 is to add my Diana 5G pistol which I just sold. I'd used this gun off and on for quite a few years.

My major issue is what to get next. Maybe something like a Lighthunter.

I fill at 200bar and get 936 at the 1st shot to 920 at the 20th shot with 16 grain JSB Diablos. I can shoot another 10 good shots before I top off, so I get 30 good shots for hunting, I don't use this gun for Targets primarly for rabbits or starlings. I also had the Trigger tuned very light, and it was made whisper quite to, I have a picture of it on Lamar's airgun picture site, under under david1376 http://www.flickr.com/photos/2906824@n00/88038036/in/pool-airguns .

For me, in no particular order

1.DAQ .457
2.Beeman C1
3.Prairie Falcon .22
4.Beeman R1
5.dragonslayer .50

The DAQ .457 is the greatest big game airgun ever built in my view. The C1 and R1 are my all time favorite springers that I've hunted with for over 20 years, the C1 is the perfect small game gun being fast to shoulder and dead accurate in my hands. The R1 is a real handful of gun, but very powerful and very accurate.... it is what a speing piston airgun should be in my view. The Falcon is a gun I fell in love with while doing a review and purchased rather than giving up when it was time to return it.... I can't miss with this gun and have hunted a lot with it. The Dragonslayer is another recent favorite, a big bore tack driver that I really like shooting. I've used it for everything from squirrel to boar.But there are so many more that I really like, it would probably be less arbitrary (and easier) to list my favorite thirty guns.

Sterling (the .22 underlever done by Sheridan for a time in the 80's)

The rest get some rotation, but these are the ones most often out of the safes.


Crosman 357. Cheap plinkers, but fun to shoot
Crosman 38T
Daisy 747
Marksman 2004

I note that all but the IZH are cheap guns, but they show up in my hands much more often than the expensive pistols.

Hi All
My favorites in order. To make this list each must hit 10/10 paintballs at 40 yds rested. Except I have not tried the 10M guns >30 yds.

R9TK Buttoned piston, Maccarri stock. shoots Exacts at 860-870

TX200 MK3 Maccarri tuned custom bronze guides,custom seal, piston rings
etc etc JSB exacts at 850 fps

Diana 75 TO1 great trigger stable shot cycle like it better than FWB 300S
as a shooter, but the FWB is better looking. Jsb's 8,4 gr at 640 fps

AA410E Tuned by me shoots >50 shots at 810 fps 15.9 gr exacts within 15 FPS
spread. 10/10 paintballs at 50 yds no problem

HW 30S Maccarri tune kit installed by me with slightly increased tophat
weight of 25 grams. Shoots 8.4 gr JSBs at 620fps Shoots with the
10M stuff though more hold sensitive than Diana75 or FWB300S

Current crop includes: early Carreer 707 Mac1 style

PE Maccarri custom kitted. 810 fps Exact15.9 gr

Diana 48 Maccarri Apex seal and Heavy GSI kit .177

FWB 127 with extra .177 barrell Maccarri kit

BSA lightning Tuned by me custom guides tophat .22

FWB 300 s rebuilt by lewis in OZ

steroid sheridan .20 and b/s 392

Benjamin franklin, Mac1 rebuild too old for steroid

Crossman 2289 tuned by me custom pump parts.

Webley Victor .177 tuned by me custom guides
maccarri spring trigger work. .177

Since I am so sick(addicted) I am thinking of thinning the herd and keeping only the R9TK, both 10 Meter rifles and buying an Air wolf. The number of issues with the Daystate stuff recently on the forum, makes me nervous to pull the trigger on that deal, right now.
My problem is that my right hand is very numb from bad carpal tunnel compounded by raynaud's phenomenon ( vibration induced White finger) and despite surgery the numbness persists.

Shooting springers with their vibrations and two way recoil is worsening the situation. So the TK the recoiless springers and an airwolf only in my collection may get me away from shooting the TX, PE, 48, FWB127, BSA, Webley,and the pumpers. All of them make it worse and I love shooting them all.

Best of the season to you all.

1) R9 in .22 cal. The stars must have been lined-up perfectly when this gun was put together, because it is simply a consistant 1 holer out of the box.
2)R9 in .177 cal This is a shooter also, tuned and am just putting the final touches on a new piece of wood for it( Maccarri Tyro grade 3)
3)Sharp Ace Hunter in .22 cal. Adjust power to the shooting you need and is super accurate at all levels of power.Peep sights are one of the best if not thee best open sights I've ever used for hunting,plinking. Awesome plinker at 3-4 pumps.
4)LD 12 inch venom shrouded pistol. This is the one that goes with me when I travel. Easy to pack, and once again, very accurate.
5) This spot is a toss- up and am leaving it open for future consideration,guess I'll just have to go and shoot some more to decide. Thanks, Happy Holidays.Hmeister

Diana 27 .177
Diana 25 .177
Diana 350 .22
Weihrauch 97k .177
Weihrauch 77K .25

These are the airguns I have most fun with, and fun is why I shoot airguns. I am also involved in "serious" competition, but this is with firearms.
Airguns = fun, plus they hone my shooting skills and can be shot at places were firearms would be impossible.

A day shooting with my 350 or my "lowly" Diana 25 can bring me as much joy (or more) than a day with a "best quality" Walther target rifle or a Colt Python.

Kind regards and have a truly wonderful (and pelletful) 2007 !
