Picking Up My Rifles After A Years Break..

    Evening chaps - I hope everyone is well this Sunday evening?

    It's been a while since I dusted off my rifles (mostly due to work and a bit of a health scare).

    Guess what.... I "need" another one! I guess this is another which rifle post... sigh... sorry :)

    I have two rifles which are bonkers accurate, but each with their problems. HW100T fantastic but too heavy to carry around for a wimp like me. S200 fantastic but low shot count. Ok, I guess I just want an excuse to buy another gun. The thing is up until now I only shoot a handful of times a year and to be honest both of these guns have only fired a few hundred pellets whilst sat at the gun range, but now that I have a farm asking for me to do some pest control, i can see me shooting a lot more and i'm using that as an excuse to buy another one.

    I want a different manufacturer to broaden what I have and I've narrowed it down to a: Daystate regal HR, FX streamline, or a BSA "summat"??.. r10?? (all sub a grand).

    Now I know there a lot of things that make a good rifle etc. but theoretically is there anything between these rifles with regards to purely to accuracy, by that I mean if clamped in a vice - which should be the most accurate? Obviously - there are good and bad examples of all rifles and accuracy is down to other factors such as fit and trigger, but if all things were equal, which should be the most accurate?

    Also, i'm a lefty so an ambidextrous or left handed option is a must.

    What do you guys reckon? or is there one I should ditch?

    I reckon you already have it with the S200.
    However as the S200 is a CZ (not air arms), how about adding an AA to the collection? S410 carbine?

    Only BSA that’s light with a respectable shot count is the Ultra Se

    Air Arms I’d go for the S410 super lite

    Nothing Daystate for me I’m afraid

    Lastly you could lighten up your HW100 with one of @nemo1966 ‘s titanium tubes (also doubles the shot count) and maybe a new lighter custom stock for it.

    The HW100 is a mega gun so I’d give serious thought into improving that?

    Welcome back from a fellow lefty.

    You have two very nice tools there and if I was going to add to those I would choose something air arms or FX (I am a FX fanboy). If they have the characteristics of what you want, how about upgrading them?

    A regulated S200 with a magazine conversion is an effective tool - or keep it single shot. An upgraded HW with bits from HW100tuning would lighten the gun, improve the balance and make it even more consistent than standard (depending on which bit you upgrade of course).

    In theory any mid range pcp should be as accurate as the other...it simply does't work like that. If its an urge to have another rifle, then air arms - if you want to improve what you have...consider the upgrades.

    thanks
    Tim B

    Take a look at the FX Wildcat. Lightweight and high shot count. Only issue may be the 8 round magazine. Surprisingly light and very accurate.

    thanks for the warm welcome :)

    I've just been looking into fitting a regulator to the s200 is a bit cheaper and easier than I expected so - I'm going to do that for a start!

    Regarding the HW100..... So I could fit a lighter air res and.... can you get a bullpup stock for them? that would bring the weight in and also make it more portable?

    Ah, I didn't realise the 510 is regulated? I am now looking at a 510, or a FX something??

    I'm reluctantly selling a nice mountain bike so a new gun will ease the pain :)

    Was it an internal or external ref for the S200 - both seem fairly straightforward to actually fit....then the tweaking to set up.

    Yes, the titanium rube makes it lighter....don't know the difference I weight for the CS to original stock tho.

    The regulated 510 is new out.

    FX....very nice range to choose from.

    Thanks Tim B

    I would 100% be tuning both you current guns as there’s some very clever guys on here to help!

    Regards to your choice for me the fx and regal are neck and neck but purely on looks I’d have the Huma regulated regal....such a lovely looking rifle!!

    Thanks for all the feedback - much appreciated!

    The reg I have seen was an internal one that didn't involve any drilling so hopefully is should be pretty straightforward to fit??

    I'm going to have a mooch around some shops and see if there's any 510's or streamlines and then see which one I prefer the feel of and see what kind of deal I can get.

    Going back to bsa for a second... I notice there's a lot of mixed opinions, is it the regulators or the barrels that make them a bit of a gamble?
