In Pic’s or person what airguns have you seen take more game or pest? I may have missed some but these are the one’s that seem to come up the most.November 6, 2007 at 4:09 am #27234yParticipant
I’m guessing that AF guns gonna win because this is an AF site and quite a lot of us just have the one PCP….
I voted AF.. and then realised that I should have voted AA410 for one reason… Cygnusx and his one man killing/videoing/posting crusade.November 6, 2007 at 4:20 am #27235
You are probably right. But the S400’s have shown me many times from many guys, that it’s a true killer. And I’m still thinking hard as too who is top dog. It’s very close for me based on all that I have seen. The s400 maybe the most used all around airgun hunter. 😕November 6, 2007 at 12:19 pm #27241jfkParticipant
I voted for AirForce as I have a Talon SS and a Condor…but my FX Monsoon is quickly catching up.November 6, 2007 at 4:53 pm #27253
I haven’t owned my Talon SS for very long so it hasn’t taken much game. The bigger part of the picture for me, is that I have taken so many rats, tree squirrels, and ground squirrels with my Benjamin 392, that there isn’t much left. My 392 has served me well for 15 years. I am enjoying my SS, and look forward to bagging some pests, but my 392 is awesome.November 7, 2007 at 12:59 pm #27310quote SteveinLA:
392’s are great guns. One brand that I missed was Beeman’s. 😳November 7, 2007 at 4:43 pm #27319
Well, actually it is a Benjamin. The Beeman guns are great too. Also there is the Benjamin’s relative, the Sheridan, (.20 caliber). Both guns are now made by Crosman. Mine is what has been called a transitional model. It was made by Crosman in Bloomfield, NY, but it is the old design with a beautiful walnut stock and a stamped sheet metal trigger guard. I wish that I had the foresight to buy several of them, oh well.November 7, 2007 at 6:05 pm #27323quote SteveinLA:
Yeah, that’s why I put Crosman in the poll to cover the Benj’s and the others. What I meant was the Beeman brand is not listed in the poll to cover the many great hunting guns that they have.November 7, 2007 at 7:35 pm #27327
Ooopps!, Sorry, I didn’t intend to offend you, or to be preachy. My bad
I don’t cosider the Benjamin/Sheridan guns to be Crosman grade. Even the current production Benjamin/Sheridan guns are much better than the Crosman entry level guns. Don’t get me wrong, I own and enjoy many crosman guns, and their customer service is great. I have killed more squirrels with my 2250 B than my SS. I have a 1377 American Classic pistol that I bought in 1985 that has also taken more game than my SS. I’ve had more fun with that airgun than any other. But then again, I just got my SS and am looking forward to many years of decent kills. Seriously, Cygnus X is my hero! Go Cygnus!
The upgraded Crosmans are everything from powerful and functional, to works of art. I am impressed with many of the guns that I have seen on this forum and the yellow forum. If it wasn’t for the internet, I wouldn’t even know that these things exist. Gotta love the net.
I guess that I’ll have to go with Crosman for the poll.
Have a great day, thanks for the poll.November 7, 2007 at 10:34 pm #27335
LOL….I’m not offended at all and I totally understand 😀 . The Benjamin/Sheridan are great and I should have added more brands to the list. If we look at the history of airguns the Crosman’s maybe at the top of the list.November 7, 2007 at 11:55 pm #27340
Cool, I’m pleased that I didn’t offend you. I guess that you know who the one person is who voted for Crosman. I just got my pump today. Now that I have a good supply of high pressure air, I will begin more intensive training with my SS. I hope to soon be one with my SS as I am with my 392, and start bagging my pest critters. I have been mooching air from my local dive shop. They have been good about it but I don’t like doing it too often, so I think that I have been using lower than normal pressure for most of my shots. My first shots with full power were an inch higher than before. I need some time alone to really get aquainted with it.November 8, 2007 at 12:01 am #27342sniper782Participant
A little bit offtopic, can anyone post a link here for Cygnus gun (i believe it’s a S400 right?)November 8, 2007 at 12:25 am #27344teflontronParticipant
Logically the Crosmans must win simply because they are the most widely available and prevalent guns on the list. After that though, and taking out the fact that we are a Condor/Talon site, I think that the AA410 will rank very highly.November 8, 2007 at 2:16 am #27347yParticipantquote sniper782:
He has an Air Arms S410 ERB (The S400 is single shot, 410 is a 10 shot)
Theres a new version out that replaces the bolt with a side lever and thats here –
And here you can see my new side lever alongside Cygnusx’s slightly older bolt version.November 8, 2007 at 3:38 am #27356randyhubParticipant
Almost double the cost of a Condor and half the power but obviously more refined in many ways. Unfortunarely nothing I kill is closer than 50 yards most around 100 hundred yards so I really need the extra FPE at these distances. 🙂
But still hard not to appreciate the 410 even thought it wouldn’t work for me. Gee I still like the Monsoon too, why did I ever get into airgunning????8)
