Hi was looking at Trapper Industries website at their air rifles and they have a XB3 Custom Chinese sniper Trainer in .177 or .22,looks like a poor mans Dragonov and a Swedish Mauser air conversion in .177 or .22 Any body had any experience of these 2 or got any reviews on them? theyre well priced and look pretty good.They also do a mosin nagant rifle air conversion.
Cheers
Jon

Long time no see Jon - how's things? The Arizona trip must be a distant memory now if you're looking for more toys ;)

I have handled a Trapper Industries SKS conversion and it was just about the crudest thing imaginable, really really horrible.
The woodwork seemed to have been inletted with an axe and fitted where it touched, the 'gas tube' was off at a stupid angle from the barrel and the metalwork poorly finished.
On the strength of that I personally wouldn't touch any of their products with a bargepole.

That 'rifle' was without doubt the nastiest attempt at work i've ever seen. I honestly thought it was an old scrapper that someone had brought in for repair - and certainly not an 'as supplied' product.
Don't know how they get away with it personally and charging well over 250 for it is just a second kick in the nuts.

Bummer :(. I was rather taken by the look of the springer Druganov. Oh well, pennies saved I guess :D.
