SMK 78 Bell Target

Postby Ian » Fri Feb 08, 2013 5:36 pm

I picked this up today

Will at Woodfield GCP stripped it, polished the internals, fitted good quality seals and gave it a tune. I am impressed by what you get for your money

The trigger obviously isnt up to match rifle standards but its light, smooth and predictable. My initial worries about it being too heavy (my old FWB300 was too heavy for me) were unfounded and it feels just about right.

I put about 100 pellets through it this afternoon in the garage. At 9 yards I manged good groupings on paper targets - the sights need some fine tuning though. On my new bell target I managed quite a few 'dings' of the bell at 7 yards which I was more than pleased with.

Nice to see some owner pics of one.

I have heard good and bad reports on these.

Would be good to hear how you get on with it.

Try 6 yards, the standard distance, for the bell target and see how you get on.

Kind regards,

Co2? bell target rifle

Postby zunmik » Sat Feb 09, 2013 2:53 pm

I think its a great rifle don't forget the trigger is 3 way adjustable  8) , and you can get trigger tune kits to further enhance it if you wish. Its the one i was going to get, but then the walther came along "still wonder if i should have gone for the lighter Co2?". Re local clubs? when your happy with the rifle you could start your own club, or start an online comp like the pistol one we had on the bpa, or even both!. atb, M.  :)

I'm hoping to have enough time to do some shooting this weekend with the new bell target and Phil's paper version

Would be good to hear how you got on.

I was also hoping to have a go with the Bell Target and my 6G, to see how I got on.

Alas, current circumstances have required my attention to be focussed elsewhere.

Kind regards,

Unfortunately I didnt get the chance to use it much before having to sell it in order to raise funds for emergency car repairs!

Shame - nice rifle and great value for the money

Cheers
