    Results ?

    Daz , if you want results then it has to be a anshutz 2002 . very good rifle at little money . if you want a classic rifle . then yes the GC2 is the one to go with . although there are a few good NJRs about . but believe me the shutz is much , much easier to shoot to a top standard ???

    I like the idea of a retro rifle, but just cannot make my mind up :rolleyes:

    Have 2 steyrs a dommie and a GC2 mk3 out of the 4 the GC2 takes more input from the shooter to do well
    I would not have an electric daystate
    Out of the retro rifles it would be a GC2 every time
    a dommie in standard form is over £950 these days

    Simple .

    DAZ , If you want results the 2002 with all welhams mods is the one i would go for .but if you just like to shoot then a good GC2 . it has taken me over three months to halfway get back to shooting the GC2 decently . it is that long barrel mate . you have to be right with it . so if you don't want to hassel mr osbourne and co then go with the GC2 . but if you want to get in amongst the prizes then the 2002 . by the way i won't have it back for a bit ( get it back at anston ) but i will have a very nice GC2 for sale after that at little money . will send you some pics even if you have bought something else ???

    Holly, send me pics and details once it is avaliable.


    Garry, I know the walther is way out of my price range at this moment in time :mad: And i know what everyone says about the gc2 wanting more input. I have owned/shot them on and off since they were first produced and always shot them well.

    At the top of the list so far for me are the EV2(never thought i way ever say that) and a 2020 Anshutz.


    Regards


    Daz

    Just got my first ever EV2 (mk1) and it is very nice.

    No better than my RN10 though and I would put that up against any current top rifle and it wouldn't struggle to better them if I did my bit.

    The RN isn't the easiest gun to shoot - if you want that then track down a Steyr LG 100.

    ev2 all day long

    the daystate mk4 though is absolutely useless as an FT rifle unless you get a new stock made for it

    its far to shallow at the front

    also the cheek piece is too low.

    Hi Daz,

    For my money I would go with the Pro-Target - given that you have just missed that nice GC2.

    NJR is still a good rifle but getting harder to find good examples.

    The Pro-Target is a good performer for reasonable money, easy to service, accurate - it ticks pretty much all the boxes.

    I have to agree with Dave, hotshot, a Steyr LG100 is a very good FT rifle and can be adjusted to fit anyone in FT guise.

    chrisc I wish that I was a master of tact and diplomacy like you. :D

    James woodhead bought one and he IS the current world champ ??? HOLLY
    PS go with the flow brothers
    pss . the 2002 is the only rifle i know that is very simple to maintain . at least for seals . it is modular . it all runs off the center block . the barrel and air cylinder ( detachable ) come out the front and the action has just two bolts to keep it to the back . what the rifle gives you is a avearage wind with exacts . very reliable once sorted by welham and compared with the others , CHEAP . try one ???
