    That's a very difficult one to answer simply because it comes down to rifle pellet combination, a very good S400 can easily outshoot a walther dominator, EV2 or Steyr...

    Could also depend on who's pulling the trigger.
    Every modern PCP gun sold will be more accurate than the nut behind the butt;)

    I would suggest it is more down to the scope now ratherthan the rifle because almost any rifle can be tweeked to the point of accuracy far better than most shooters are capable of (providing the barrel and ammo is any good)

    I would think the question should be;
    what is the most consistent rifle?
    ..in relation to air rifles..
    it seems they all need tweaking in some way,
    there is no simple answer... just like the rest of life

    Consistant does not necceserilly equate to accurate

    granted

    Granted, but, it defiantly is part of the equation, in my experience of air rifles.
    The ammunition & barrel have to be good & work well together.

    I would agree that a Steyr takes some beating in my opinion. There again, although I have owned scores of rifles over the years, I have never owned a full blown PCP target rifle before so what do I know?
