    My untuned. 177 AA Pro Sport is 960 w/Crosman 7.9 Wanted to tune it down to around 13 ftlbs just to make it easier to cock. It shoots so smoothly right now though that I don't know if I want to change a thing. I just did one of my TX200'S at right around 13 ftlbs and what a difference it made in the way the gun shoots. JM told me that that is where the Air Arms guns will be at their best. I might have to buy another Pro Sport to find out.

    I was meaning JoeKool.  You got to have HW77K and HW97K in on the mix.  I can't see many springers beating them consistently.

    Talk is not worth a whole lot if you can’t back it up, and they say a picture is worth a thousand words.  So, to prove to myself more than anyone I broke out my four top underlevers to accuracy and chronograph test them back to back this afternoon from 35 yards.  I have included pictures of the results below in this post.  Mind you I haven’t shot any of these airguns in over a week, so with no scope adjustments I just fired 10 shots with each gun over the chronograph at a target 35 yards away.  Giving myself only one sighter shot in the top left corner of each target.  Then shooting one shot at each outer bull and lastly a five shot group at the center bullseye 🎯!  This was a pretty fun challenge!  Shots were taken off of shooting sticks and sitting in a stool.  I know with scope adjustments shots would have resulted in mostly bullseye’s, but I wanted to display honest results for you all and for my own integrity.  I love days off work!

    Pictures top to bottom:

    1.  RWS 460 Magnum(.22), target, & 10 shot chronograph results 

    2.  DIANA 470TH(.22), target, & 10 shot chronograph results 

    3.  AIR ARMS PRO-SPORT(.177), target, & 10 shot chronograph results 

    4.  AIR ARMS PRO-SPORT(.22), target, & 10 shot chronograph results

    Looks like all are shooting very nicely.  Really like the 470.  I have a 460 as well-accurate and powerful.  I also have an HW97 and a Walther LGU-the HW97 is very good and the Walther is excellent.  My most accurate springer-Walther LGU.

    Recently bought a Diana copy (externally) of a Mauser 98 – just on a lark. Wasn't expecting much. What a surprise. Easy to cock; great trigger; no vibration; and, it flat shoots the lights out. Using AA pellets am getting five shot groups at 50 yds of around 1" with my old eyes and the open sights. The tapered front post is really a great aid for accuracy so long as I use a consistent 6 O'clock hold to prevent vertical stringing. Will eventually scope it, but am having too much fun to do it now.

    Believe it is the same action as the 460.

    I am aware that Weihrauch springers are fine as wine 🍷!  But no I don’t own one, or have not ever shot one.  No doubt they shoot wonderfully!  But so does the guns I own, maybe one day. 👍🏽

    Yes JW652 that Diana Mauser K98 air rifle shares the same action as the 460 Magnum.  Sweet gun!

    Hey I understand totally.  And thanks for sharing about the guns you posted.  I am intrigued by the RWS guns you listed.

    You’re welcome.  RWS and Diana springers have been around, proven, and definitely worth a try.
