At those prices I will pass, I have not spent over $350 for an air rifle yet and that was spent purchasing a vintage low number FWB 124 Sport Deluxe for myself.

My son spent that much with my blessing on the .177 caliber ASP20 with synthetic stock and no scope, after putting a few hundred rounds through it he felt it was not and did not live up to all the hype, he felt the finish was subpar, was louder than advertised even using 8gr lead pellets and felt heavier than advertised. Due to these factors he sold it in November 2020 and made almost all the money back of this $349.99 purchase with the exception of $25.00. Now he is looking for a different break barrel or a vintage one he likes.

Myself I would not hesitate to spend up to $350 again on another hard to find vintage air rifles that I am looking for, but will not do it for a new one no matter the maker or caliber.

At this point I am content to sit and wait for the day Sig resumes production if ever, if they do then I hope it will bring prices back into line and reality.

Hats off to the Seller of these two air rifles and good luck.

A 8 gr pellet in the Sig is to light. Would have been quitter, less harsh shot cycle, and more accurate with lead pellets
in the 10-11 gr range.

I saw that one on ebay. Can't believe it sold for what it did. That's a higher end Hawke 30mm scope. Like $350 new. The
wood stock asp20 was $429 when I bought one. The seller was trying to get back nearly every penny of investment back.
As far as sound goes the Sig and my RWS 34 are about the same

NorCalMan,

I 100% agree with the fact a heavier pellet would have improved performance and may have altered his decision to sell the ..177 version. However, the 8gr or near 8gr pellet was lead and made for Sig and was the only pellet in stock at the store at the time of purchase. I make the same assessment of this rifle as I do for the .177 versions if the Beeman R1 (HW80), new FWB Sport and the ASP20 which is all may have or are suited for .20, .22 or .25 caliber due to the power they generate, in .177 to much potential is left on the table.

Who knows he may or I still might get one in .22 just to confirm it’s true potential in that caliber which I am certain to be accurate. But again I won’t look at them until the prices come back to reality at this point. I know we both had hopes for another made in the USA Air Rifle and still do.

The rifle on ebay was mine and I canceled the sale. I actually deleted the listing here as well because I decided to keep. Initial reason for selling was because I can't shoot in my backyard other than that the rifle shoots better than anything I ever had including my tuned rws 54 from John in PA.
As far as the price I actually got some angry messages on ebay that I refused to answer and fall on the low level of those that send it. One of them said " you are a funny man". Last time I checked America was still a free capitalist country and one can sell or buy as his pocket , wants, needs dictate.
As far as the price goes the rifle was brand new, discontinued and with taxes and shipping if it was available you were looking at around $500. The scope was around $350 it self and the metal cap alone and the honeycomb sunshade were separate accessories worth $100.
If you didn't Iike the price you could take a hike and buy something else .

As far as the SIG ASP 20 it has some awesome features and history which in due time I will make a separate post about. I am sorry you guys didn't have the chance of shooting one and on the other hand extremely happy that in a moment of weakness I posted them for sale and noone bought them. Lucky me

Took my son to a local farm and ranch store (Murdoch's) last night after baseball practice. While there we went to the rifle and hanggun section to pick up some targets and pellets as they also deal in Airguns and Air Rifles. This is the store he bought the .177 version of the ASP20 with synthetic stock last year, had they had a .22 caliber one at the time he would not have purchased the .177. Well needless to say he was not impressed with the .177 so with my blessings he sold it and made back all but $25.00.

While there we noticed that they had two ASP20's on the shelf, the last time we were there after his purchase in September we had bought one of the two .177 they had on the shelf. Noticing this curiosity my son checked them them out again. All I can say is his face litup and he had that quiet now what do I as he wave with his arm to get my attention. There sitting on the shelf was what he was looking for the long out of stock .22 caliber ASP20 with synthetic stock, no scope priced at the manufactures suggested retail price of $399.00.

I told my son if he gave me what he had left of the money he got back on the sale of his former .177 ASP20 I would buy it for him, he said sure thing. We took it up to the counter and while checking out the salesman said they were gald to see another one of these leave the store as they were way to expensive to sell when sitting next to the much cheaper Benjamin Nitro somthing? and Gamo Swarm Fusion.

I asked him when they got more of these in as the .22 caliber had been out of stock for a long time. The salesman told me they didn't get more, this one had been returned to the store unopened/unused with sales receipt so they we able to take it back. The salesman said the old rancher just never found the time to use it and could not justify the expense of keeping it in the box. I told my son he was lucky to find this one and to take care of it, never sell it as this made in the USA air rifle is no longer being produced and again he got it for $399.00, which just goes to show with a little luck and patience you may still be able to find them at a local store.

As for a scope not a problem, as an early birthday present I gave him a Hawke Airmax scope that I had planned on using on my Beeman Santa Rosa .20 R1.
