AOA fellow members !

My parents have gone to UK and i found this as a good opportunity to get myself a gun bought from there !
I had my Interests in GAMO Hunter Extreme .22 but websites say that its discontinued !
My other option was for Walther Falcon Hunter .22 but that was also discontinued !
Now i'm in a bit of a mess !

My preferences:

Cal: .22
FPS: Around 1000
Budget: Around Rs 38,000 (270 Pounds)
Kills: Birds, Rabbits, Small Game.
Reason: Hunting purposes.

Also which guns of this kind would be available in Pakistan (LHR, ISB) that could be bought from here and wouldn't be easy to bring from there..

Regards

Firstly, WELCOME BACK after a LONG GAP.
How's your RAINBOW going? Did you hunt anything with it?

Get any GOOD springer for PK coupled with a CHEAPER SCOPE. Just do a bit of H.W and you'll find a-lot of them in this budget.

thanks for the welcome ! :)
Have been stuck in my job and can't get time for anything ! :(

I have been doing homework on this, but i'm extremely confused !
i thought may be fellow members would be able to better guide with their enormous pool of knowledge to recall from ! :)

Kindly name guns also..
A high speed .22 is needed ! So that the gun Kills, doesn't Wound the animal and lets it run off in pain !

Sorry don't have any other knowledge regarding BSA airguns, but they're good.
If you add 2k rupees to your budget and make it 40k, you can get a Diana 350 Magnum (classic) from Pindi Saddar. Or you could get a Diana 34 Classic from Nila Gumbad @32k.

my friends are using BSA sports and mercury ..... mercury is more accurate. But now BSA have new models i dont know which will be best. Just refered BSA to you because you are going to buy from UK...otherwise you can buy diana 35 or 34 classic in 30-35 K range from Lahore

I am in UK BIRMINGHAM if you need my help I can help you source a good second hand HW 77,80,85,95,97 or 98. These are all German AIRGUNS. They can easily be tuned to high power that you need and they will last more than lifetime. SH TARIQ UK.

1100 fps in .22 sounds too much.. Yeah it's a good gun, but these velocities are ALWAYS EXAGGERATED.. More like 800-850 fps with normal lead pellets. At 1100 fps, it won't be accurate as it's the sound barrier under most conditions.
BTW I doubt it's available in the UK easily, it's common in USA.

Dear in UK there is restriction on air rifle velocities You can only get maximum power of 570 Feet per second IF Above need to make licence so better to purchase it from Pakistan or Dubai ....

SALAM BROTHER.
It is very easy you buy the gun and when you come to the airport pia counter tell them you have a AIRGUN. They will call airport police to come and check the AIRGUN. And seal the box and that's it. One thing you have to remember that the AIRGUN should have its own box not in your suit case. SH TARIQ UK.

Yeah that REALLY SUCKS. Basically no matter if you pay 1k pounds or 200 pounds, you get the same power.
Better get it from PAK or DUBAI or USA.

SALAM BROTHERS.
The power of any good quilty AIRGUN can be set to any power you want. It all depends on how you set power with good internal greese,spring,washers,piston buttening, piston sleeve, brass spring quide and some tri-flow oils. SH TARIQ UK.

Is this airgun normally available in the market or was it a special order or something ?

Thank you so much to all fellow members ! :)

I have a Diana Model 35 but its a bit old.. it still is very powerful but it now lacks that 'punch' when the pellet hits the bird..
I dont want them to suffer with the wound, so i've stopped my hunting for some time and do target shooting..
How can i increase its power ?

Khilji
05-03-2012, 05:04 PM
yes it is locally available in the market just you have to search for it I have 2 of them webley royal & Diana 54 Airking both are working great

Khilji
05-03-2012, 05:07 PM
just change the main spring it will be as good as new better to check the piston. i got Chinese under lever it use to shoot @ 350 fps
i bought a main spring from the market and changed the spring and piston seal it is shooting @ 600 fps.
