Buy it ...

... you won't be sorry. If you decide to hunt in colder weather buy an HPA bottle and then you can still return to CO2 for sunny plinking sessions.

I bought one a couple of years ago -

extremely satisfied! I shot it for a year or so on CO2 (mostly using a paintball tank adapter since the AS cartridges are the most expensive way to buy CO2) and then converted to HPA using the package from the850store.com. Excellent shooter - I do not hesitate to recommend.

Hammerli 850

October 26 2011, 11:16 AM 

Ralph C02 guns are my favorite and the 850 is very near the top of the list. I own the .177 cal and will own a .22 cal the 850 bolt action is like one of my Airgun buddies From the yellow said is like butter. I think you will be back on the C02 band wagon if you pick up a 850 and the .22 cal is a great choice. I received mine in a trade that is why it's a .177 cal the guns shoot hard and there tack drivers right out of the box. Tim A.

Great gun.

I haven't seen them for sale refurbed for a while.

I would also recommend running them on a reg'ed bottle eventually. At the very least, get the Bryan & Associates adapter to run it on 9oz bulk bottles, it's also used to attach the reg'ed bottle.

You'll be pleased with it

If you mostly target shoot, the .177 might be the way to go, but I have the .22 version and use it for target shooting and also for plinking pine cones out to 50 yards. The .22 is very accurate once you set up your scope to the best yardage for your shooting style. I started out with the 88 cartridges, then bought the 12G adapter, and recently went the 9oz route with B&A adapter. The 9oz is the way to go to lower the costs per ounce of c02 if you do longer shooting sessions. The 12g adapter with 2 12oz cartridges gives me about 60 to 70 strong shots. The 88g cartrides will give you a couple of hundred shots, and the 9oz will give you many, many, hundreds of shots. I'm still shooting my first 9oz bottle and have lost count on the number of shots as it just seems to keep shooting.

Bottom line, with so many ways to go, including an HPA conversion option, do yourself a favor and get one. It might just be the only gun you need. Good luck with your decision!

Mine shoots all the JSB's the best closely followed by the Crosman pellets.

October 26 2011, 7:46 PM 

I did LOTS of pellet testing on numerous days with about 20 different types of pellets. It was a toss up to use the JSB 15.9g @ 870fps or the JSB 14.3g @ 900+fps. Both would shoot ragged holes off the bench at 40y. I chose the 14.3g and never looked back. Some were HORRIBLE, mostly the real heavy pellets. The RWS all shot badly.
