    Dude, depends on what you wanna pay. The most expensive one I have is R8950.00 new and the cheapest one is R4100.00.
    Although I received another one today that cost R2000.00, but have a scope as well as as an "Old Van" trigger, and the barrel has been shortened to 13 Inches. Shoots like a dream.

    Here is a link to good affordable rifles, most probably the cheapest in the country. You will not find crappy Guns here though. Speak to a guy by the name of Farmer:

    ... THE AIRGUN SHOP : Registered Air Gun Dealer and Importer ...

    This is undoubtetly the best Pellet Guns on the Market. Believe me, if you can get the HW97, HW77,HW100, go for it:

    Weihrauch-Sport



    I only buy from a Airgun Forum Mek, they know what they doing, as most of them have some sort of international or Provincial Colors in FT shooting.

    Maybe you must open an Airgun Forum and move the last couple of posts to the new thread Mek;). Nice Guns to brag with:p

    I must show you a pic of one of my old rifles. Fully rusted because of salt spray :(

    The other is all shiny. Next time I come up to Richards Bay, will bring along Sean :)

    Oh, and then I have this one, older than a lot of us, and still shooting a koekhou...lol:

    This is the .22, meaning it shoots the No 02 pellets.

    By the way, it is a 1939 Model- almost as old as Dean :yeahdude:

    LOL! I too have a "windbuks"'ie..... Mine only cost my R150 from the local Cash Crusaders. Very inaccurate at 50 metres - but a GREAT GREAT toy..... LOL!

    Sean - those BLOODY MAJOR GUNS you have there SURELY don't LOOK like break-neck "windbuksies"..... They don't seem like the "Traditional" "break-neck" "pump-action" air-gun that I am used to - please explain to the non-informed how the HECK these work?

    Please?

    Jacques, I just finished playing Monopoly with the kids and just saw this now. If I'm not going deep sea fishing Tomorrow morning I'll explain, otherwise will do it in the afternoon:). In the meantime, check this Guns: These are PCP GUNS, working with air pressure:

    You wish dude...:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    These Guns shoot between 800ft per second to about 1500ft per second. And I am talking on a .177mm pellet gun, then you still have the bigger versions.

    Not your average blow gun:lol:

    These guys change the springs etc to get chronies of a consistant speed eg, my one gun shoots at at 900ft per second, even if you shoot 500 pellets through it. Very constant
