Yeah, the HW30/Beeman R7 must be included, given how it has influenced so many shooters to not only start air gun shooting, but to stay with air gun shooting as well. Moreover, that's air gun shooting in general, as well as springer air gun shooting. It was right there from the start in the Beeman catalog as the R7. The HW30 is also one of the most universal air guns ever made, being shot by shooters of all ages and sizes.
Well since Mount Rushmore is a bunch of old dead people, none of the currently made springer should be on the list.How about FWB 124, Walther LGV, FWB 300, Diana 27S, Theoben Sirocco?No currently made springer should be on the list. Is anybody going to put Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump on a mountain side? I think not... -Y
What would you say the four "Mount Rushmore" German air rifles would/should be?Is the sense of their influence on the sport and its development.I'm thinking the Diana 34 for starters, because it seems to be the gateway gun to good German springers. Possibly the HW 77 or 97, because of its FT prominence. Then.....?This post is just a fun way to gab about some good German airguns so no name calling, eye gouging or nose pulling. 😁
Diana 75 or any of the GISS guns ...Until such time as you handle & shoot a recoil-less GISS rifle and hear the racket tho feel nothing ... dream of it, as it is sublime
