  • What's your favourite PCP

    For those who have a favourite PCP. I would like to know because I'm looking for a good PCP and I'm would like to
    know what you think is the best PCP on the market.

    I am looking for long distance PCP that I can use for
    both target and hunting, in particular rabbits. Im tossing between getting a
    PCP in 22 or 177

    Well that would depend on how much cash you have!! What you want/need in the way of accessories and what you want in way of caliber.

      I saw a FX at a gun show some time ago, it was the base model, what ever that is, very small, very light and about 30fpe. There was a shroud option and a 12 shot mag option back then. Not sure if both are still available these days.

    Value for money? Benjamin Marauder.
    Smoothness and ease of operation? Weirauch HW100.
    Number of shots between refills? Theoben Rapid.
    Those are what I own and use, there are many more available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. There have been some changes to import regulations recently resulting in compromises needing to be made by most manufacturers. Oleg from Ausarms may be able to tell you more.

      It depends on the features that you deem important to you and what you want to do with it.
      Light weight hunting gun that you can carry around all day will have a smaller reservoir, which will have less shots per fill.
      To answer the question you need to supply a bit more info.

    So far so good with my .22 Mrod too.

    If it's just bunnies and paper, I'm not sure why you'd spend more if the amount of $ is the decider, if $ isn't really an issue - then spend away!

      Daystate Huntsman .22 will do it for you if your budget allows, but my opinion could be slightly biased

        Hi,
        Do you have a budget?

        I have an FX Royale in .22 cal which never ceases to impress me

        If I had the opportunity I would buy a 30 cal FX Bobcat as well

      Mick, you should know by now we can't be trusted with an AR that might be stealthily ( is that a word) quiet :lol: and it never gets boring watching those pellets go through one hole but I am going to have a crack at 100 metres tomorrow weather permitting

      All guns can be bought now,

      Daystate Air Ranger .22, although its a bit loud in high fpe, but you can order them in 30,40,50,60+ fpe.
      If you going to spend that money get a 24inch barrel, for the lower fpe range it will reduce the noise. Accurate, not pellet fussing, tunable and really nice gun. Heavy gun

      For Fun, has to be the FX revolution, its very accurate, great smooth twist barrel and shoots jsb 15gr very well, cheap to run.and its not that loud at all. Did I mention semi-auto. light gun

      Work horse for bunny shooting, Evanix Monster premium .22 (shrouded) on sale at used guns.. cut the spring to get it down to 38fpe with 18.1 and its a great gun. Accurate quiet in a new tune, can be regulated for excellent accuracy and performance.. great for 80 shots. Heavy gun

      Marauder .25, great bang for buck, lots of info available, easy to tune with a adjustable transfer port, spring tension and hammer striker..accurate shooter.
      light gun

      If I had to choose, one, it would be the air ranger.

        PCP seems to be addictive, although it is something I want to get into when I'm older and have some spare cash.

        What models are available with shrouded barrels here?

          You currently can't buy anything new with a shroud.
          The only way to get a shrouded gun, is to purchase a second hand one that was in country before the restrictions took force.

        Hi...

        Just because it can be done, and I guess I will do it with time,a TF78 or 79. I still thinking converting CO2 to PCP is an interesting idea.

            I don't think you'll be disappointed, they are a great little rifle. I was considering the Raider in .22, as I was in the market for a .22 cal PCP. I already have one in .177.

            Ended up going with a Hatsan AT44-10. Hopefully this becomes my favourite PCP.

        • #13
          IMHO the Webley Raider 10 is still the best value Multi-Shot PCP on the market and with only a small amount of tuning it will give other rifles costing twice as much a good run for their money

              My favourite PCP is the one I own. The Blizz. The one I want, is a different question all together; still going through evaluations but favouring the Fx series of PCPs.

              So, this is my favourite PCP at the moment. But of course it now has a Hawke Varmint 4-16 x 44 SF on Sport Match mounts instead of the thing that's in the picture.

              Nice one Maddo and well done for choosing to get a PCP over a rimmie too - When your dad next pops round to my place bring it over and we`ll get it tuned it up for you

              BTW I`ve still got a spare-mag for that calibre from when I had one back in Wales - Remind me when I see you and you can have it.
