    Ok, I know this is going to cause some debate;

    I recently (Tuesday) received my new Air Arms TX200HC after returning my Walther LGV. Now I am not so much swayed by looks when choosing an air rifle caring more about accuracy, dependability (why two Walthers went back) and how it feels but this new rifle is stunning. My wife (who apparently is swayed by looks, well she did marry me!) said she was glad the Walther went back and I should have bought the TX first!

    So to my question; I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we all know Springers are far better looking than something with a built in bottle (;)) but I'm very interested to know what each of you think is the best looking Air Rifle ever made?

    I personally have quite a soft spot of the Daystate Panther. I absolutely love the look of the stock.

    I’ve owned 5 of them, but never been able to keep one - the problem lies in what I love about it ... the stock. Easily marked and not able to be repaired.

    Maybe one day I’ll buy one and keep it ...

    Also, the R10 in black pepper is rather tasty - am not at all biased given I bought one last week

    I don't think that makes you biased; just proving your loyalty! :thumb:

    Walnut R10 for me as well, even in the left hand guise :) Although recently I really am liking the look of the Crown in the blue laminate. A close second is the Theoben MFR with shroud.

    Springer - Has to be the TX.

    thanks

    p.s. I was tempted to troll and say HW100KT :facepalm:

    I have to admit your MK1 80 is stunning with that brasswork. :thumb:

    My R10's the best looking out of mine - even better in a few days as @nath92 has given my stock a proper finish (standard was rubbish). :D

    Hw100 is the best looking, cracking wood grain on the stock.
    Other than that, it would have to go to the mibro Matesse. Simply dam right sexy, wish i was able to afford one. Let alone hold one.
