Re: FAC air whats the benefit ?

Re: pancreatic cancer

We lost our lasses sister a couple of years ago to this, horrible thing to go through for all concerned.

Re: New s510 TDR .22

Yes Brian i would second that, i have the TDR in 177 pre AT and love it , ok the s510 has the side leaver and the new silencer, but and i think this is a minus point it also has a hard case . To me one of the points in having the TDR is that it can be packed down and carried without drawing attentio...

Re: 97kt for my nephew

I would put them on the same line as the tx200, we just prefer the front under lever rather than the crow bar under the stock.
I tried one for a day and after a couple hundred shots i was not happy with the cocking action, but horses for courses.

97kt for my nephew

We spend a good 2 hours at the shop mainly with me nattering, but also with my nephew looking through the collection of springers on offer. In the end it was a choice between ...
