Reply To: Best value based on these priorities?
So few airgun shooters where I am, used really isn’t an option. Hate the thought of mail order used, just don’t know where it’s been. If you know any FT shooters with used equipment, go for it!
The only issue I have with the new lower end guns are the triggers. The Marauder has a good trigger, but reports on the Maximus are that it’s medeocre at best. Accuracy wise, it looks pretty good. I suspect the fortitude will suffer the same limitations.
Good luck on the move to PCP, it was the best thing in shooting I ever did. Brought economy back to shooting! Now, I can go to the range and while the guy next to me shoots $100 worth of ammunition, I barely scratch $3 or $4 in pellets. My 10 meter pistol gets 60 to 70 shots per fill and only takes 30 to 35 strokes on a pump to fill. It’s a great hobby!
