Reply To: Same old newbie question: What to buy?
Brocock makes good air rifles, but they need filling to 3000 psi.
Springers are good, and fun, but they’re almost impossible to shoot well beyond 50 yds. They have to be held a certain way, (not firmly) or they’re inconsistent. Also, the more powerful they get, the worse the balance and heavier the weight. They’re still fun.
Where do you live? Maybe there’s a member nearby who’ll let you try some of his airguns before you buy. If you’re in the Chicago area, drop me a line by personal message.
Also. Re. Springers, break-barrels are much simpler than under or side levers. They’re not loosey-goosey, as you might think.
