    I’m not a collector, I’m just a sporting- and recreational shooter. But I have owned quite some nice hardware over the past years, and most of the rifles I’ve sold, I regret selling. Anyway, I thought it was fun to start a topic where anyone can post guns they own, and used to own, and what their thought are about them. So I’ll kick off with my most recent (past 5 years or so) list.

    Guns I used to own:

    1) Weihrauch HW50S in .177. Regret selling it, because it’s one fun gun to shoot. Hold sensitive, fairly accurate and well finished.

    2) Air Arms S410 in .177. Also regret selling it. Really silent, backyard friendly and pretty accurate. The finishing on these Air Arms rifles is gorgeous! The only downside, the magazine system is somewhat fragile.

    3) BSA Scorpion SE in .22. Man, do I regret selling this puppy. Absolutely nothing bad to say about this one. Accurate as hell and well built!

    4) Ataman M2 Tactical Carbine in .22. Don’t regret selling this rifle. Although being powerfull, it wasn’t accurate at all, and I didn’t like the trigger. But it looked cool, and was well built.

    5) Webley Hurricane in .177. This was actually the first airgun I ever bought, back in the early 80’s. Sold it because I didn’t use it any more. No regrets.

    6) Webley Tempest in .177. Nice plinking gun, bought it because I missed a pistol after selling the Hurricane, but again didn’t use it, so sold it again. No regrets.

    Guns I currently own:

    7) Feinwerkbau (FWB) 300S in .177. My 40 year old match rifle, that I restored and still shoot each weekend on the range. It’s perfection, period. And it will never leave my collection, being my favourite shooter. I’ll probably going to be buried with it. 

    8) Weihrauch HW30S in .177. This is one of my absolute favourite rifles. There’s actually nothing bad to say about it. It’s never going to leave my collection, way to much fun to shoot!

    9) FX Independence in .22. My first and only remaining PCP. Dead accurate, extremely well built, has a built in pump so you can shoot all day without being dependent on an air tank, it’s super silent, and it has adjustable power settings. This one will never ever leave my collection! I even won numerous competitions with this thing, unbeatable!

    10) Diana 340 Ntec Pro Compact in .177. Here to stay, very accurate and beautiful to see. 

    11) Crosman 2240 in .22. My tuned to the bone practice pistol for my Sig Sauer 1911.

    Now I’ve shown you mine, let’s see me yours!

    Well, it ain’t much, but here’s mine;
    ​Winchester 1400CS in .177 cal. 9lbs+ with 3-9×32 scope. nearly 52″ long, it’s def a big gun! The long Tom of the air gun world! Wanna sell it, as I only bought it because of the high FPS numbers. Besides, OH won’t let me hunt turkeys with it.

    ​Then my near fully restored Crosman 160 Pellgun .22 cal, variant one, 1955-56. The first of it’s kind;

    Then the 1987 AIR17 in .177 cal. All the original parts are still there & it works well yet;

    And my latest acquisition, my new Hatsan Striker 1000x, also in .22 caliber. Turkish walnut stock & layered butt plate set it off. Mounted is a Hammers 3-9x32AO scope on their 4-bolt rail. I love them all for various…historical reasons. The Winchester is the only one I may yet sell. The rest are stayin’ right here at home with me.

    And one last shot…The Crosman model 160 with the Optima 3-9×32 scope the Hatsan came with mounted in place of the old 70’s Weaver V22-A 3-6.

    I did a 60 shot string at 33 ft before poi started to drop and 48 shots at 50yrds before poi dropped…all from 200-100 bar. It fills to 230 bar though. Uses 8 shot mags (inexpensive, sturdy metal construct). It shoots MANY pellets well. Loud. Heavy for a lil fella (BOSS feels lighter). ACCURATE as hell! You’ll love it.

    Well, I’d like to show the airguns that I own, but I don’t know how to post a full-size picture!

    My picture files are all on my Computer…no Photobucket or other sources.

    Still own:)
    A .177 Hatsan gladius short that I love to shoot.:)
    And a soon to be on its way a Bwalton.22 bullboss:)
    I’ll get pics up later

    I don’t have anything bad or negative to say about any of the pcp air rifles I have owned or still own.i have enjoyed them all.
    Both the edgun and cricket were sweet but I was soo afraid of hurting the wood finish I just didn’t enjoy them as much as I would have liked.
    The Bwalton carnivore was more power than I had anticipated and after it shot through my trap and took a chunk outta my house it was time to get me another .22 Bwalton style bullboss..

    I don’t need a Ferrari to get me to work,my ole dodge gets me there just fine.:)

    Gonna get
    Talon p

    A wish list
    Flex
    Warp
    Raw 1000x or lrt
    Daystate wolverine with cf bottle
    Lol I probably wouldn’t shoot them much as they are just too nice.
    I’m just a bit too ruff around the edges I guess.

    Lol man,im just odd that way.
    If I bump into something with my hatsan it doesn’t bother me but if I was to bump into something with my edgun or cricket I had,i probably would have pooped myself.
    Besides I think Bwalton has spoiled me with what he can do with the Hatsan platforms .
    Now don’t get me wrong the high end guns are sweet and I don’t knock anyone for spoiling themselves with one.
    We all work hard for our money so spend it on what makes you happy.:)

LOL, I know… I just had to make some money to buy other guns, essentially better ones. But if money were no object, I would have kept them. 😉

    @scrane, let’s see a pic of the Steyr LG 110 HP, the RAW, and the Harrier (never saw one of those). I really like those Steyr’s ( the action and mag feed)…looks like they’ll give Daystate a run for their money in fit and finish.

    ddransoml: Sorry, I don’t have an image hosting site. The Steyr would be the last to go. ( although only a single shot) I bought thr Daystate in 2000. It was a model designed to be a low cost entry to PCPs. Probably the last low cost airgun Daystate ever made. The HM1000 is .22 with the standard stock in red laminate.

    If I hadn’t gotten out of PCP rifles this is the on I miss most …Hit like a hammer , 50 shot on a charge , and spooky accurate. It was HARD to let go of
