    Toss up between my Tyrolean stocked Diana 34 and my Weihrauch HW50 (99) both in .177.. The Diana has such a great trigger but the wee 50 is right on the money.
    In.22s, probably my Anschutz 335, although I've an old BSA Mk1 Airsporter that shoots a treat.

    Tyro stocked 34? Sounds interesting. I'd like to see that. I do like the 335 as well. Good but underrated gun.

    That Diana of yours is superb mate, but then again so is your hw50

    If I was allowed to choose a rammer it would be my .177 evolution, or as my son refers to it "the gun you love more than your family." If it had to be strictly springer then it would be my hw80k with the bull barrel and the ginb stock, also in .177. Both are tack drivers and I love em

    Good choice by the way.

    I'd love to see Tony's brain explode if he had to make a decision, so many to choose from but I recon it would have a HW and a 9 in it somewhere

    Mine would have to be that damn pesky HW77 copy, my early Prosport

    Yep, it'd certainly start with "HW" and the numbers 3, 5, 7, 8 and 0 are nice numbers, too!

    OOH! now you're just teasing.

    In all honesty I really do think you'd have a problem trying to choose.

    If I didn't have the Prosport then I'd have a hell of time trying to choose out of my BSA's.

    I reckon you'd end up with "that Vantage job" Tone ?

    Sorry, can't answer that. They all have their pros and cons - if they didn't I wouldn't have kept them.
