    Hey guys I’m in the market for a long range pcp airgun, I do alot of starling, pigeon and squirrel hunting, and most of my shots are 75 to 120, it’s open farm fields and I’m looking for something that can do the job at those ranges, I’ve had a talon ss but it lacks long range accuracy for me past 60 yards, just wanting yalls opinion on a good long range gun around the $1000 mark.

    You might want to consider a used FX Boss, or something else in .30 caliber.

    I like the fx wildcat but it’s a little over my price range, I’ve looked at brocock but haven’t herd anything about them and what there like. Anyone on here have any experience with brocock airguns?

Daystate owns Brocock so they should be good.

    Good luck at 60 plus yards with a brocock….just not enough sack. You might want to get a condor ss 22 and then maybe a 25 barrel down the road…two guns in one for under 1k. Another serious option might be a aa 510 carbine in 22 (the standard is two long ) and your better off  finding a used one or come up with $250 more for a edgun r3m like mine :)……problem with your budget is your so close to a much better used gun like a daystate,(maybe FX but im all set with them),edgun,cricket etc

    And if you say Mike your mental telling him to get a condor ss ….well its made in the USA AND WARRANTY FOR LIFE.  Very easy to carry in the field plus fix so do i have to say anything else ???

    One gun that I feel is overlooked too often is the BSA R-10 mk2. Very good gun for the money. Can be bought for 749 if you watch the sales on Amazon.

    Here’s a few that I own and would highly recommend:

    => Airforce Talon SS
    => Airforce Condor
    => Sam Yang Sumatra

    And if you save a bit more or find used, grab a Wildcat .25…  This one exceeds my expectations in terms of; shot count, power, accuracy, weight, balance, look and feel.

    X3. BSA R-10. Nothing can touch it for the money IMHO. I’ve had both the R-10 and AAS510. In my opinion, with the Hammer forged BSA barrel and the fact that it comes standard with a regulator, the R-10 edges out the AA in repeatable accuracy. Additionally it is less expensive to boot. I don’t miss the AA at all and I’ll likely never part with the BSA. There is a reason BSA’s are so popular in European bench competitions. Again, all IMHO. The AA is a fine rifle in it’s own right, I just think the BSA is better.

    Top pictures below are groups from my BSA R-10 .22 at 50 yards benched. Bottom pics are the AA S510 benched at 50 yards. This is my real world experience. Also, here’s a video from a long time AA’s fan and well respected member of the community doing a review on the BSA. Catch what he says at the end in his summary.

    All the best with whatever you choose.

Thats not a 1000$ gun though, more like at least a 1600-2000$ gun. ._.

    As you’ve already has the talon ss it seems easy to rule that one out. it should have shot well    inute of pest bird ) at 100 yards if everything was right. Did you do each and every trick posted on the internet? ( kidding ) But what were your average benched groups at 100?
     Now 120 yards  is a stretch but can be done, naturally wind/shooter ability other is a large part but so may be the barrel? The LW barrel that is the very least fussy seemingly shooting ANYTHING well out to 50 may have deep enough grooves cut into it to harm BC over the long distance – where BC should improve-  .
     BSA does make a good barrel, as do others. $1,000 for something really that good a shooter puts you in the used market. So have far to a club near you? Face to face is always nice. At that range and target I personally could live with one of them there old single shot rifles folks don’t seem to want much these days, you just might find a great deal.

     But just how was your AF rig shooting at , 25-50-100ish?

    We’ll be looking for pictures of something new soon.

    @spysir at 25 yards it does good half inch groups, at 50 it starts to open up to about inch or so, at 100 it’s hard to even get a group. Maybe 3 inches at best, my biggest problem is poi change, I’ve herd this is a common problem with AF rifles, I don’t know much about tuning them or anything, I’m up for any suggestions, I just don’t want to drop money in to they when I could sell and get a better gun the gun was originally a .177 and I got a .25 barrels on it. Does that mess with the vale stem any?

    Put a 24″ barrel on your Talon SS, you’ll get the accuracy past 60 yds

    No expert but I’m 99% sure the .177 has a different valve than the other calibers of air force guns so I would think it might mess with your shooting.

    Is the Beeman HW 100sfsb regulated? Bear with Me I’m new to the pcp world learning a lot, I have a couple of Beeman R-1’S that I’m tired of replacing the mainsprings on.

    I can’t find a bsa r-10 mrk2 under 1,099. Im interested in a .25 cal gun but if a .22 will be as accurate at 100 yard then I’d get one
