    Looks like the bastad offspring of a Wolf that spent a night to close to an EV2 which then got buggered by an HW100:D:D:D and what the hell is that trigger thing:confused::confused::confused:

    I really like that Greg, do you have one in your possession yet? The grub screw on the reversed trigger would make it feel good I'd imagine. Are Cometa and Hatsan the same company? As it looks like they share some components.

    I'd like a go with it next time I see you if you have got one please
    mate:). I've defintely seen worse looking rifles since waking up this morning!!;) Lets face it there's no such thing as a good looking buddy bottle rifle no matter what you do to it - No offence big Chris. I also don't think it looks like a HW100 or a Wolf/Rapid bastard child, the shroud looks like that yank blokes it much neater around the breech than the standard fayre.

    I personally think it oozes quality and is a definate rival for the Wolf/Ranger and the Rapid series of rifles.....The trigger appears to be a modern styling masterpiece and the breech, with its many differing levels, is a stunning example of simplistic design and the woodwork a symphony or organic curves. An awesome looking rifle:cool:








    Oh I'm sorry what I really meant to say was......

    Well just like giving a room full of monkeys with type writers enough time and they'll come up with the complete works of Shakespeare; have a machine shop full of monkeys and they'll come up with this rifle, after five minutes.:D

    Well lads, all I have to say is that it's only the prototype so is bound to look abit rough. No Ryan, not in my possession but piccies lifted from the Euskadi forum.
    From what I understand, it is designed with versatility in mind so that the stock can be swapped for an adjustable FT friendly version among other possible accessories but haven't got more details.(Google Translate loses abit of subtle detail!)
    The head bloke at Cometa pays abit more attention to the FT scene over there, I met him last July at the Euskadi Open.

    The action looks like it has some potential with some refining, would have been nice to see it out of the stock, which needs sticking straight in the kindling bucket.:)

    Jesus W H Smith.................that is one mother of an ugly rifle. It makes Rapids look pretty. I would feel ashamed shooting poor rats with that. And then I'd only do it at night so nobody see's me.

    :D:D:D

    I've always preferred function over fashion so I'll give it a go.

    Good luck to Cometa with their first PCP model.

    Shaun :)

    Greg was going to say it had the looks of a development or pre-production mule, butt ugly but very much "work in progress" (is the same with cars, motorcycles, anything)
    Like the idea that they have designed the action to be multi-purpose i.e. can be used in a hunting rifle or with minor tweeks a FT/HFT rifle. Allows for a reasonable price through economies of scale. Also glad their top man listens to shooters and hopefully may listen to, and understand what is required.

    Will
