    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
    Aye Chris thanks for your appreciative comments on my Diana 34 and the wee 50.. It's hard to choose between them.
    It' s a mutual admiration society Bud as I've shot both your Theoben and your customised 80 and they're both on the money as well. 😎
    One of the great features of the Boinger Bash is getting the chance to see and shoot other folk's rifles, all different and individual and great craic into the bargain.

    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.

    Absolutely, that would be the big issue, Pete, as I love them all for different reasons and everyone's a keeper.

    The only Boinger that I'd consider ever selling would be the Vipermax because of the pants trigger. But then I can still shoot half decent groups with it, although you really have to work at it. And then I think, "Well, it was a freebie, it's light and the plastic stock means it'll always make a good close quarters ratter / barn gun".

    At the April Bash, after shooting a nicely tuned Hatsan 60S (Quattro trigger), I had some nasty, silly notion of selling the Slavia 634. But, since then, and after smacking myself around the mush with a wet haddock a few times, I realise that the CZ really is a keeper. Quality barrel, manual barrel lock, lightweight 25mm piston, synthetic rear piston bearing, RIDICULOUSLY easy to strip, shooting at high 11s and with a wonderful firing cycle after fitting one of the Tinster's kits. I'd be mad to sell it.

    TX200. I have 8 and I could keep them all since I only shoot one at the time. If you shoot loads of pellets, the TX is also your gun because with only spare springs, lube and seals, it will last a million shots.

    Next question?

    Exactly this.

    In that scenario, I am 100% with you: HW80 all the way -- although I would still stick with my favoured cal of .177 and would look for the K carbine model, too.

    Have you never used sky hooks John? I'm shocked!
    A man of your caliber and you're a disbeliever... Well look here, Ted makes great use of one for holding his target...

    Guess that makes my Evo an 'air'springer no?

    Not entirely convinced but wouldn't mind having a go at that down at the Bash.
    Holes in the polytunnel roof ?
