Any air gun experience here?
 
I shoot a MkII TR at 50y+ with a scope BR & prone.

I shoot a 10/22 TD with iron sights, with and without a sling, standing, kneeling, sitting & prone, at 50í. I havenít taken it outside yet.

These arenít the top of the line, absolute best, micrometer required for group size, .22lrs, but I have fun with them.

What bolt repeater & semi auto air rifles would I be looking at to shoot the same? PCP? Large CO2?

Any one here have a clue?

Wow you are really into this.. LOL

I settled on a gammo .177 single shot-break barrel because the stock was nearly identical to my 10/22 & my 30-06.
this way I keep in practice for my hunting trips.

I haven't owned a repeater past my crossman bb pistol from back in the 80's.

I am interested to see if anyone does have the knowledge for your question.

The little break-action .177 Crossman I have is good for minute-of-treerat, but I wouldn't call it a precision instrument. I blame the inexpensive scope; airguns are really hard on optics, weird vibes or something.


V, I had to read that line about the 10-22 being an indoor toy a few times; the first time I was like "well, hell yeah!", then I realized you probably meant at a range, not in the basement. d'Oh

I have a gamo that I use all the time. Plus its cheaper to shoot than a .22 and you make almost no noise.

I have a Crosman pellet rifle with cheap scope I bought a wally world a few years ago and at 50' +/- it's been death to 300+ tree-rats (about 80/year). The local hawks, raccoons, vultures, etc., recycle them for me. :D

I have been looking at the Marauder. http://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Benjamin_Marauder_Air_Rifle/1774 Yes they are expensive.
I currently have a 22 caliber springer break barrel single shot and would like to switch to a 22 caliber compressed air.

Very happy with my Rws 34. I have a UTG 3-12x40 on it and can hit a 5" tin at 70 yards. 5/8" 5-shot groups at 35 yards. Just find the right pellets. Its very picky...

Air rifles? Did you do something to lose your right to bear arms?

Not more than a rifle, and $5 gets you 250 pellets, that are actually in stock. I'm considering a .177 one.

I've heard fire stations have compressors that can refill tanks to 3000 psi. Know any firemen?
