  • springer for beginner field target

    Any ideas on a suitable springer for A couple of juniors wanting to try air rifle competition and especially Field Target.
    Bear in mind weight and price. I know that the adage is to save until good is affordable. On the other hand I don't want to frighten them away.
    We are holding the Qld .state Air Rifle titles at our club next year and we are trying to get the local shooters into Air Rifle.

        How about a HW50 Jim ?

        Smallish, quiet & accurate to boot ?

        They tune up nicely too

          Beeman R7
          That one Phil has is a sweet piece of gear.
          And that was before he tuned it.
          I wondered what the fuss was about until I shot it.

        Thanks for the suggestions . This gives us something to work with.
        Finding used will be most unlikely so who are likely stockists?

          This is a problem in Aus.

          As far as I know no one has the Beeman R7, aka HW30s on the shelf, and they have to be ordered. Delivery takes an enthusiasm diminishingly looooong time. I'm still waiting on mine, with no light at the end of the tunnel, and it's been months.

          Encouraging though, that Druid seems over the moon with his long awaited 77

          I don't think its that far north, mate, some where around Mackay area I thought but I could be mistaken

        Bowen are holding the state titles. About 2 hours north of Mackay. There will be wind and maybe rain but will be lots of fun.
