Reply To: What company makes the best air guns?!
My .177 Hatsan Striker would have nudged the 1000fps as their marketing says and after a 100 or so pellets I have no doubt it would have got there but accuracy was going out the window. I don’t mind tinkering so I stripped it down, cut 2 coils off the main spring, replaced the steel tophat with one made from a Delrin type material, give the tube a bit of a polish, re- lubed the spring, re- worked the trigger and it now shoots H & N Barracuda Match ( 10.35grns ) pellets at a consistent 800fps. It is an absolute tack driver out to 25-30 yards if I do my bit. This rifle with scope cost less than 300 Aussie dollars, you get what you pay for in this price bracket but they can be made to shoot very well if you want to work on them, as for who makes the best air guns, don’t know the answer to that😉
