At 25 yrs old!Still shooting on a par with most 'modern ' so called superguns. Certainly holds very tight groups at 55yds, with old RWS superfields,and against the FTP900 makes me wonder at £1500 was it worth it ?? Of course it was! The colour of the laminated stock, all the adjustments(less the rubber studs on butt that keep falling out) nice shiney finish on the replacement (and first one) that now likes working at 11.4 ft/lbs,but pellet choosy.. On a pad both can do good groups, I think the GC2 has the edge though. HERX77 .
