What sort of help/info are you after ?

They were sporter part of the range that included the XM100 and the NJR100 and came in to replace the Shamal. Best fill pressure is around 2500 - 2700 psi.

Just reread your thread you say s100 ? Think that should be either SM100 (in which case details as above) or S200 which is a different beasty altogether.

S200 made by CZ and rebadged. Best fill around 175 bar

If it only cost you a tenner... I'd worry :D Get it checked by a gunsmith before you charge it up.

It may be in mint condition, but who knows what the internals look like. We wouldn't want it blowing up in your face... Assuming its a PCP that is. :confused:

The XM100 was one up from the sm100. I think there was no mechanicl differences just a difference in stocks. Good rifles and spares are still available. Nick Jenkinson would probably have some and would be able to service it. The Olympic trigger can be fitted. which came as standard on an NJR100. The NJR was the pinacle of the FT scene in the early 90's. The series in order of ascending cost:
Sm100
XM100
TM100
NJR100.

Olny the NJR100 came with regulator as standard.

Hope that helps.
