    I've always been a springer person but I'm looking into PCP because after a lot of trouble with my newest spring gun, I have decided to give up on them and move up to PCP.

    I'm looking for something with a shot capacity of 50 or more in .177 and that costs around £300 - I can possibly stretch to £320 but this is the absolute limit.

    Can anyone give me some recommendations ? I'm looking at 2 rifles at the moment; the BSA Scorpion K and Air Arms S400 K.

    Get back if you can, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks and happy shooting;

    James.

    Their customer service is very good but I've yet to need it - my Supersport has been brilliant since day 1.

    Thanks for confirming that the Scorpion is a good gun Rockabilly.

    NOTHING can come close to the S400 for that price.

    And I do mean NOTHING. :D

    Let me know how much you want for the Longbow?? ;)

    although i have to agree that the s400 is a good rifle
    after owning both of them i can honestly say that the bsa
    has the edge, its better quality construction and more shots
    per charge tip the scales for me, accuracy wise theres nothing
    between them.

    Murphey you have mail ...

    Went to Dowlings Field Sports today, tried out the BSA Scorpion there - they only have a tiny little range (corridor) but I took three or four shots with it, and I have to say it's so nice. Didn't get the chance to try any other PCP's out but the Scorpion suits me down to the ground - it's really nice to not have recoil for a change.

    I might go back and try the S400, so I can compare them - because they're the main two that I'm interested in.

    However before I can afford a PCP I have to sell the Longbow which is a shame ...

    Happy shooting as ever,

    James.
