    Best budget Bullpup?

    In and out of this hobby like a YoYo and now looking for some PCP Bullpups.

    I need to buy 3 so value for money is the king... But I want something that is as accurate as my old AA400.

    Seen a lot of new names on the market with wildly different reviews on their accuracy, seems some were designed
    to be far above the UK's legal limit. Some reviews said they were super accurate and then others stating they had the
    total opposite and they could not get the guns to group at all because of the lower power output and the guns not
    being designed for the lower limit.

    Opinions/experiences?

    I may have posted previously about the Reign but never got around to trying one. Anything better for less money?

    Single shot/multishot not an issue. ( .177)

    Many Thanks.

    To match your s400 isnít going to be cheap

    Anything below a £1k is going to be pot luck, Iíve got a few budget bpups that are as accurate yes but Iíve had plenty that werenít

    New your best bet for an accurate bpup out the box is something from Kalibrgun, AGT, Airmaks, Edgun ranges, used these are around a £1k each, then thereís the Daystate pulsar, AA Galahad (can have cocking issues)
    Or look for a sorted budget pup as they are a tinkerers dream, Iíve a few Karlís and other Turkish bpups that are excellent now but all needed tic, like regulating and rebarreling with just two original barrels out of a dozen guns Iíve bought have stayed put, the rest have had either LW, CZ or Cometa barrels fitted

    From personal experience Iíd give FiX a wide berth especially as you want accuracy, didnít think the hwpup was anything but heavy and every Chinese gun Iíve had has had issue and with zero parts available Iíve stop trying.

    For me, if I had to buy a bpup and guarantee accuracy it would be a kalibrgun cricket or an AGT Vulcan

    I have a Regime and an Ixia. For the money the Regime is hard to beat (£400) but the Reign is also an excellent gun

    Id vote for the Turkish guns... Kral and reximex.. But as suggested above, they will all need some fettling.. What makes them budget is the lack of quality control and fine tuning...
    Always looking for any cheap, interesting, knackered "project" guns. Thanks, JB.

    I had one for about a month, it didnít shoot that great and cocking it wasnít nice. Perhaps a tinkering session would change that but I didnít need another project

    Me too
    I like a Turk as they respond well to a sub12 fettle

    But OP wants s400 accuracy out the box
