More springs please!

Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

I loved the springer spe­cial is­sue last month and you should give us more of the same. Most of my friends and I shoot springers be­cause PCPs aren’t re­li­able enough for hunt­ing. We ser­vice and re­pair our own guns, and you can’t do that with a PCP, which saves us lots of money. Real air­gun­ners shoot real air­guns, not these re­coil­less jobs! Ed­ward

Hello Ed­ward I see you have strong opin­ions about this sub­ject, which is great, but I have to dis­agree with you about PCPs not be­ing re­li­able. I’ve hunted with my Air Arms S410 for some 12 years and only had one prob­lem in that time. The part that failed I was able to re­pair my­self for about £5. I ac­cept that you need to treat PCPs with a lit­tle more care than a springer, es­pe­cially when it comes to fill­ing them. I also agree that skilled folks can ser­vice their own guns, but I’ve seen lots of springers ru­ined by peo­ple who had no busi­ness pulling one apart. Ed.

The abil­ity to ser­vice your own gun is part of the ap­peal of a springer
