    Bought a Webley Stingray Springer. Nice Gun.

    Fine so far. Since then,
    Crossman 2240 pistol, Well, Could go on about it, But with a few mods, Not bad.
    Since then. Gladiator. Nice

    Air Arms S410 Classic, in walnut and in.177. It absolutly lurves Biz Mags and is good to go up to 60yards, least ways, thats as far as I've targeted it (supported).
    Very accurate and a treat to use. It currently sits in the bedroom, paired with an S&B Hungaria 6x42, waiting on squirrels.

    Daystate Airwolf MVT (12ftlb .177). My main hunting rifle and also very accurate. Lurves Daystate Selects in 4.53 Cal but groups just as well with Biz Mags. It's got coupled up with MTC's Viper 4-16x50IR and a bi pod (I got coupled up to shooting matt so now it's "Mr Sniper" all over my permission). :eek::D

    I picked A.A, Daystate and Webley, but there's others not listed, such as Brocock, B.S.A and Ruger.

    Pro Target.

    As a left handed FT shooter I don't have a lot of choice without spending a fortune on something like an ISP though (although the new Hammerli looks interesting).

    Lots of guns get put in left-handed stocks of course but left handed or ambi actions are distinctly thin on the ground.

    Air Arms mainly - my main FT rifle is an old slightly customised RN10, just acquire another RN10 recently that is being modified now. Have been known to use a GC2 occasionally as well.

    If I shoot springer then it is a toss up between AA TX or a Venom HW77.

    Just getting back into FT again after a break, and have recently bought an AA Pro-Target.

    Have never owned one before,always been a Daystate or GC2 shooter, but i have to say that it is a very good rifle.(just the idiot behind it)


    Regards

    Could somebody explain to me why are Feinwerkbau P70's not so popular in England? I have seen only 3-4 of them in the last half year...

    I think it's coz they have a very bad reputation of constantly shifting POI with the slightest temp change but I stand to be corrected about this.

    I have read many bad reviews on the net regarding this issue on the FWB P70.

    I have never owned one so I can't judge this rifle and I don't believe all I read on the net either............so Maestro, does the FWB P70 really suffer from such issues?

    Yes it does, but only until you fix it... The solution is simple and easy: slide the A-clamp backwards and mount the scope only on the barrel. No more POI shifts at all. I can take out the action from the stock and back, travel thousands of miles, shoot in 17 C and next week 35 C, nothing changes.

    Anyway, I've been shooting half a year with the factory original rifle, but my scope was mounted only on the barrel from the first time on. There was a small POI-shift but only 1-2 clicks, no problem. The point is that the rear rails on the alloy action piece are only for bubble levels and other stuff, not for scope.

    By the way, I'm working on the alu stock, it will have a new centre of gravity and I'll get rid of 250-300 grams dead weight...
