I need some recommendations from you fine folks who own, or know someone who owns, an Olympic/Match grade rifle.Last year, I promised myself a high end rifle for my 60th birthday this year in March (I've been saving for almost a year). I guess most guys go out and buy a sports car or something, but I want to own an awesome shooter.
Anyhow, I have it narrowed down (I think):Feinwerkbau 700 Aluminum (so far, this is my pick)Walther LG30 Vision PlusFWB Mod 700 Evolutionand maybe (though these are a bit above my budget, but not unattainable)Anschutz 9003 PremiumSteyr LG110
I'd like something that could be serviced (if necessary) in the USA. I don't want to be sending a rifle overseas for service work. I'd also like to fill it with a hand pump (I'll be buying a Hill when I make my final decision). I just don't want to mess with SCUBA or SCBA bottles at this time.
I know some of these rifles need periodic maintenance, but I'm a bit afraid of taking apart a two or three thousand dollar gun and mucking it up.
This will be my first PCP (the darkside beckons!).I'm sure with all the expertise I've seen on the GTA, someone could provide some information and help steer me in the right direction.To any and all... thanks for your input.
Thanks spysir, woogie man and tpatner.Unfortunately, when you mention airgun to people in Maryland they look at you and laugh. My friends like to kid me about my "BB guns". No organized shoots anywhere nearby, so that negates the ability to look them over, fondle and caress them, much less shoot them.So far, my prized AG's are my TX200 MkIII, my R9 and my 753. All great springers/pneumatics (I have others, but these are my most accurate). I like the idea of the recoil-less PCP, and I figure this will probably be my only AG purchase of the year, I'll just go for the A class. Plus I like the infinite adjust-ability of the match rifles. Anyone else wants to chime in here.... I'm all eyes.
