    Theoben for certain, Webley and Scott a close second !
    The R7 was all I ever needed for a near perfect hunting tool, no bells and whistles, just did the job time and time again.

    I would have to agree on Webley, I really do think they peaked just as they folded it really was a shame.

    I would say webley also, my first decent gun was a vulcan and I have always liked the webley spring guns, still have two trackers, a vulcan, hawk, osprey, stingray and two tomahawks.

    It may happen as the Theoben Name has been bought by Airforce airguns in the US . They hinted at bringing the name back and producing airguns under that name . Possibly only PCP as they also own Rapid Air Weapons too.

    park rifle Co. roy's design was quality for the park. it's a heavy beast but then it was built to last. i think they should be worth a hell of a lot more than they fetch right now. i still get a buzz everytime i shoot it.
