    Ah well, if we're going "self-contained", then it would be my Benjamin 392.

    My answer always used to be a FWB124, but recently my Park Rifle Company 91 for its tac driving accuracy.
    Thankfully you did ask what powder burner

    Don't laugh but mine would be my Webley hawk mk2 , owned from new for 40 years, modified to death to make it better than crap.

    I am thinking more of a one time purchase to last a lifetime. A just in case rifle.
    You can spend thousands and still miss a barn door or spend just enough and enjoy yourself. If you haven't got the talent to start with a million pound won't fix it. Whippet, Russell, a few bang sticks and a flat cap. http://www.smart-tech1st.co.uk

    Well, putting it that way, Rob, and reading "survivalist" rifle into it, that'd be the HW80, then.

    If I could only have one Springer it would have to be a DIana 460 magnum and this is why, what other gun mentioned can match it for fac performance and be sleeved to shoot nice at low power, light weight and can be customised with a prosport/airsporter type lever,
    A one piece compression tube and a robust build.
    What other springer can match these qualities

    Surely that would be the Umarex Wildlife?

    If the Q is pick the best springer ever, it's the Mach1 or 2, or some other Venom contraption, or maybe a Whiscombe.

    In tin foil hat weirdo prepper mode, I would want something very well made, not too heavy, and probably with a leather piston seal (as they last forever and can be revived, whereas at least some of the synthetics seem to degrade over time). Think Diana 35, Webley MkIII, that kind of thing. (I'm assuming that a Bren gun and a Glock 17 are out of scope - but they do both have springs in them.)

    My mk2 TX200. The only tuning it's had is having had many thousands of pellets though it since I got it in 1994. In .22 of course.

    I could be tempted by a venom 80 as per John Darling.

    I really like my HW35 and my HW55, but if it came down to it I'd keep the 25mm .177 HW77 'til the last.
