I've got Tau-7's in .22 and .177, both lovely guns that shoot differently and sound different. Both nice to shoot for their own individual characteristics. I've felt the same about Webley pistols in the past but have only a .22 Tempest now. Will add an older .177 at some stage though.

If you really fancy a challenge try a Record Jumbo, a small pistol (also an overlever), but quite a handfull to shoot well. atb, M. :wink:

Ive never had any luck finding the latter on BBS so it looks as though the pistol is the best bet

Well, unless my buying Demon gets the better of me with a new purchase, it's a toss up between my Gamo Centre or Gamo Compact.

I'm leaning towards the Centre at the moment. The Benchrest Comp having reacquainted me with the Spring Driven Things.

Need to save up for an Original or a Feinwerkbau IMHO.

Well you cannot go wrong with either the Original or the FWB pistols. I am of course biased towards the FWB models but that is just me. The Original range are terrific too. And not getting any cheaper, no matter what you choose.
The value of the classics is rising I am afraid and some are becoming seriously expensive with some sellers asking silly money.

I’m going off to go find myself. If I’m not back by the time I return, keep me here.

There are a few Model 6's out there at moment around the £150 mark.

They are heavier and more cumbersome than the Feinwerkbaus though.

Despite that, an all time classic and I wouldn't be without my 6G.

Kind regards,

What do people think of the Walther LP53? I've longed after one of those for ages?

Slightly worried about the piston breaking the rear sight, though. Seems to be a bit of a design flaw.

Not worried about the cocking method, as long as its not harder than cocking my BSA Scorpion, without the extender, I'll be fine.

They are relatively easy to cock, and quite an accurate pistol.

Unfortunately, the upward moving piston seems to send a shock wave through the vertical sight adjustment screw which eventually shatter the sight.

So many people experience trouble with this that it is quite clearly a design fault.

I believe a Weihrauch HW77 rear sight can be fettled as a replacement.

Kind regards,
