Thanks .. yes, I know he was quite good with gamo shadow 1000 but this one is heavier .. next time I'm planning to take some support which gives him a comfortable grip and handling and hopefully he'll do a lot better

That's a pretty decent rifle you have there. Also nice shooting. :) Thanks for sharing your user-feedback with everyone.

Thank you .. I will keep updating this thread .. Although there is a lot of technical data available on the net about this airgun but what you experience first hand is the real thing .. I'm glad you liked my review

Here is an update of recent events

Tuning
-- did some airgun tuning with the help of an expert
the spring and reciever body were cleaned, applied with a special grease type material the grease costed rs 1000/- from uk and is good enough for 10-15 uses may be more

cleaning

bought a cleaning kit of matellic rod from lhr (rs 350/- i guess) ... with some special oil don't remember the name (a few drops used ) barrel was cleaned a lot of lead dust came out ... used a spring type nylon brush (US made .. got from a junk mkt) to do secondary cleaning and then a make shift pullthrough was used to give the final touch

Change of scope

the gamo scope used to loose setting at times plus had big ratical so got a centre point 4-16 x 40 AO scope (USA)

the latest result from yesterdat shoot

A Group of 5 pellets (the outer circle is exactly 1" in radius) .. this group is less than .25 inch CTC (centre to centre)

Got a new spring from dubai as well and a couple of piston seals ... all set to keep this beautiful and precise weapon for a long time

CONCLUSION : more than satisfied except the weight factor

Very nice. The rifle is very accurate. BTW, you will seldom come acorss a high quality springer which is very accurate, very durable and has less weight. All top springers that I know have more weight, whether a Beemen, Weirauch or an RWS :)
