    Just returned to the dark side.

    Hi all,
    Well I couldn't resist adding an RWS Excalibre to the collection, saw it on Gunstar at a pretty decent price, just got to wait until it reaches my RFD, lovely looking rifles.

    Lovely gun sir, I wish you all the very best with it

    They are beautiful, long and light air rifles I have the RWS Rapier which is the two shot version. Hope you enjoy your Excalibur

    I too had the Rapier and found it just as you say. But it was VERY long . . . . .

    Springers are for shooters who want the extra challenges in their life... just like vegans and like vegans they also feel the need to try and brainwash everybody else into a their cult

    No Vegans just like the truth and dislike horrific cruelty to animals like you do really but they don't bury their heads in the sand, I dare you to watch this video

    I have a Rapier too - great wood, gorgeous lines, quiet (with mod) and reliably accurate. I believe they were made around the turn of this century (I'm not sure how long for) by FX for RWS. Wish you joy of your Excalibre.

    And there's me thinking that Pete's gone and bought himself a 35!

    Enjoy, Pete.

    Watched it Barry, sadly like everything else in this world it has been shot and no doubt edited with an agenda in mind and while the video may be true and accurate it still has an agenda.
    But you are 100% correct that I despise cruelty to animals (and humans) for any reason especially greed.

    Apologies to Pete and the mods for going OT


    [EDIT]
    I should have said above, it definitely wasn't an easy watch that's for sure!

    I bought a Kral Knight with a plastic stock. It is a pcp and a lot uglier than a 35. Without a doubt the ugliest gun I own.

    No apologies needed, it's often mentioned that these threads go off on different tangents.
