    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 am new to this site and think it is a brilliant one, The amount of information amazes me, But i was wondering if you would be able to help me i have £200 to spend on a second rifle, i already have the hw95 whitc i think is top notch for the money, i am looking for something that can pick off small quarry at about 25yds e.g birds or rats.
    I am open to any suggestions put forward but would prefer a rifle complete with a scope already, i have been looking for a while and earmarked a couple i like what do you guys think of the Gamo Vipermax winter blues beater [​IMG]

    Well I had a quick look on Airgunbuyer for you and this is what I've come up with :

    - Crosman Ratcatcher Night Hunter Kit - includes .22 Crosman Ratcatcher, 4x32 scope, class 3a laser, flashlight and mounts (I think) - £199

    - Industry Brand (actually called SMK) XS78 Deluxe Kit - includes .22 XS78 CO2 rifle, 4x32 scope and mounts - £129

    Other than those two there arn't many kits going for under £200, but the ones I mentioned will be fine.

    The Gamo you said about will also be good for the money.

    Any of these three will be a good buy, but I would recommend the Crosman or Gamo over the SMK CO2 kit.

    James.

    Welcome on board mate. I agree with Paperbag Writer, the Crossman Ratcatcher is a good buy but you will also need CO2 capsules in addition to your kit but I dont think they are that expensive the gun is light and easy to use

    Well nothing can touch your 95k for £200.
    So unless you want a rifle thats not as good as the one you have save your money. :D

    Or buy a nice £200 scope for it.

    Paperbag, he has been warned, and the posts have been edited. I was tempted to ban.
