    New Gun advice.

    Since I've had a pretty terrible year so far, I've decided to be a tad selfish and get myself something. So I've decided to get myself a new Air Rifle. What I would like to know is, is it worth going down the PCP route, or would Gas ram or Springer be better in the long run?

    Cheers, Shug

    Isn't it nice when someone says "that's a great piece of kit, where did you buy that", then you can modestly reply "you can't buy it, I made it myself". The moral is, it's amazing what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.

    Pcp all the way for accuracy and consitency. Springer for the convenience. If it's for hunting id always say pcp now

    My local gun shop has the Air Arms s400 and the MPR in stock, how do they stack up in the long term.

    Personally I'd go for a 410 (and have done) mines been going strong for 7 years. Multishots do have an advantage. AA are solid rifles and good build quality. Among the better mid range airguns

    I would also say go for the multi shot. Mine is an 8 round magazine which I have three of and would never look back at single shot when hunting

    I was thinking that. As I've been given a permission for woodcock it will be a huge boost if I'm decoy shooting from a hide.
