    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    I’m 40 this year and having a midlife crisis over which pcp gun I would like, I currently have a HW77 which I have been very pleased with and I shoot a self resetting target or paper targets with a backstop.

    Living in the country I have been lucky enough to have permissions in the past, however the farmer sold up.

    I also have a damaged elbow which makes the weight and use of HW77 for long periods uncomfortable.

    I’m less than keen on Umarex offerings and keen to read and discover a suitable pcp rifle that isn’t as weighty and cumbersome as my HW77, while being indexed multi shot

    Hi, welcome to the forum. :welcome:

    I'd agree with Carl - an S410 would probably do you nicely. I've just sold a SuperLite Carbine version of it. :rolleyes:

    Thank you for welcome, I have looked at Walther RM8 ( until I discovered it is Umarex)

    I also believe later Webley Raider 12 are Hatsan Turkish made?

    I see a 2 shot Webley Raider in for sale section, which I believe may still be English made?- I’m not sure on weight?

    The S410 I believe is reasonably serviceable and easily to buy spares for? I’d also be happy to look at secondhand older models and pre AT- even seal kit and chrono if something special.

    With the HW77 I like rekord triggers, I did consider a HW100 but it would need a diet if it is as heavy as the HW77

    The HW100 is a bit lumpy compared with some - I've actually got some added NV and ranging gear on top that makes it extra heavy, so the only way I can shoot it is rested. I have bad arthritis (amongst other things) that stops me from doing what I used to, but they can be lightened in several ways though. The trigger on mine is the best I've ever known in an air rifle. :cool:

    Don't write off the possibility of the Artemis P15. Light as a feather, high shot count and simple to work on.

    Hey Dan :wave:

    Have a look at the Ultra SE if 40ish shots per fill would be adequate
