    He needs to start looking in the undergrowth, as that is were most Wildlife is. and that is where this one should be as well.

    A thought. Long, long ago Ramsbottoms had for sale a few East German air rifles with a ventilated rib (its not what it seems) on the barrel. Is this an old commie monstrosity in a sexy new stock for the capitalist pigs to enjoy?

    Uttings sold it as the MX Nighthawk, apparently. Not sure what sorry outfit actually made it.

    On a positive note it does look in great condition.....I wonder why

    Talking about "Wildlife"....it reminds me of that quote from Boris The Blade (Snatch)...."If it doesn't work....you can always hit them with it!!!"

    I believe it gets it's name due to the absence of any wildlife once the trigger has been pulled.

    Made everyone who shot it at the bash laugh. Worth every penny.

    Even the ad above says Umarex: 'MX Nighthawk from Umarex'. Maybe they thought that giving it a cool name like Nighthawk would make it more attractive. Wonder what the MX stood for?

    Now imagine if it had a cluster of dummy revolving barrels, would look even cooler!

    Never seen or heard of one of these rifles, but the moment someone points one out, I find one coming up at an auction (Ryedale auctioneers to be exact), Must be a sign!.......still not buying one

    No bids, it's a steal. Plus a bag.

    And if you put the bag over your head you wouldn’t have to look at the rifle.

    Er emmm....

    I have one of these I think, it's mint although the box is shabby.. I say i think is because I have not looked at it in donkeys... Springers are not my thing... It's in 177 cal... But from memory it looks very similar..
