Wow, thanks very much for all those thoughts. Some great advice, as I suspected I would get here on this cool little corner of the Web.   

 

It sounds like I'd probably be fine with either rifle….but…..it's hard to deny the overwhelming response that the RAW might have the edge in dependability and/or simplicity to maintain. Back in the '90's, I had a Theoben Eliminator break barrel that I still regret selling to this day, so the idea of the spiritual successor to the Rapid 7 does appeal to me.

 

I also liked the idea of ordering one that has already been tuned even further by Ken at SPAW. Unfortunately, the banner on his website says " USA sales only", and I doubt anyone in Canada is offering such a service.  I imagine having a second set of expert eyes looking things over after Martin finishes a rifle should help make sure everything is darn near perfect.

 

Looks like I have some more decisions to ponder, so I just may be asking more of these kinds of questions from you all. 

 

Thanks again to everyone, the helpful suggestions are much appreciated !
