    Does it shoot well?

    Cos it ain't exactly a looker.

    Mind, at half the price of most of the competition, that has to have an appeal.

    The long barrel version looks a lot better.

    That's ugly

    IMHO that is one ugly gun, as mentioned earlier, it had better shoot well as it won't sell on looks alone. Would be great to see a new gun come in and live up to the hype though.

    I've had a little go with one of these and I thought it shot well, my only concern is the scope mounting on the barrel might be an issue with poi shift.
    I would of liked to of spent a bit more time with it and indeed see if there were any poi issues.

    Mk-300

    It was my own demonstrator Tau Brno MK-300. I know its plain / simple design is not to everyone taste - but " you don't look and the mantle piece when stoking the fire". Everything is there to do the job.

    People that have used it seem to like the way it shoots. I have not had problems reported with scope mounting on barrel, although I am trying a MTC Viper connect on it - that will mount on the actions 11mm rail and not use barrel mount.

    If it does the job well, then looks are pretty secondary, after all the S200 is no picture and look how many of those have sold.

    How well does it compare accuracy and windage wise to other FT rifles?

    I've only used it for HFT - which I am new to, at Lea Valley, only 4th ever HFT shoot managed a 49 - and should have got into the 50's if I was a bit less rubbish!

    Barrel has 1 in 14 twist ratio barrel, I am finding AA Fields have good stability when pushed along at 11.5 ft/lbs. Magazine reviews had good grouping too.

    I think these rifles will become popular especially if you buy from europe.
    Price for the beech version £622 and Laminate version £705 at current exchange rates from taubrno.com :)

    you want to ask Matt about my 12 Ft/Lbs Pardini that Jon Harris did a conversion on for me,
    and if Pardini have got there head around how we did the conversion.
    Your right the TB is ugly , but apparently it shoots really well .
    great to see some new kit on the scene.

    Why do manufacturers persist with such immature names? If it's a target gun, why the Sniper moniker? Immediately flags it as walt fodder in my opinion.

    Mk300

    Hi

    I am working closely with TAU BRNO to promote the MK300. I'll list a few points:
    PRICES - We do our best under UK regulations to be competitive. Please do not compare directly as UK models come with Quick Fill system and Hard Cases at present, although Hard Case will be dropped in the future to lower price point.
    NAMES: The MK300 will come in 3 variants - MATCH, BIATHLON and TARGET - please check out www.sureshot-airguns.co.uk for latest news on products. Biathlon and Target will be fitted with Quick Fill system as standard.
    For FT / HFT we will offer a "Hamster" palm rest as an option.
    LOOKS - well at least its not a Bullpup (...yet)

    regards

    That sounds like a better naming policy. Sorry it's just one of my personal bug bears.

    Why not ditch the quick fill and compete with Europe fully on the price. Its not as if its in any way a necessity.. It doesn't take 2 minutes to unscrew a cylinder and fill it, and there is always bags of time between checking in for a comp and the start of shooting.

    Shot with one of these a few weeks back. May not be pretty but it's lovely and accurate :)

    There is no Bullpup available at present - this was a prototype and there are non available - although with enough interest it could be made available again.

    I am afraid there are no MK-300 target (or sniper) available at present - all our stock is sold, and some modifications have delayed new batch being ready. Floating barrel will be an option on new model if requested.

    As a note, all out prices are max you will pay from local dealer - if sent from Sure Shot Airguns direct, RFD collection fee and postage is included in the price. If you want to visit us to collect then good discounts should be available.

    It is nice to see an importer working so hard to bring a cost effective FT rifle into the UK, and although I do understand that people look to Europe, in this case I do feel it's a little disingenuous given the relatively low cost of the rifle and that the importer is obviously being as competitive as he can, especially when compared to other's in the same position who are clearly cashing in (no names, no lawsuit).
