    So... Any thoughts on the above two contenders? They look similar / both multishot / both 'buddy bottle' type PCPs. Can anyone comment on comparable build quality? Is the Theoben worth the extra dosh? Is there much difference in shot capacity? .... Sounds like they both knock spots off Daystate anyway! Topcat / Rockabilly .. where would you put YOUR money??

    theoben build quality is outstanding ,its a far better
    gun than the super ten which in my opinion is hideous

    I've never owned a Super Ten but BSA build is pure quality, you can't go wrong with a BSA.

    Fair enough - but they do seem over priced ...

    £600 odd for an under lever ?? Pah ...

    imo the bsa superten is one of the worst multishot rifle,s i,ve ever come across. we had one at the syndicate three times it went back to bsa ,three times it came back still in an unuseable state (35 yds 3 inch groups various pellets used).. Better Start Again........the rapids however are ,when running and setup right ,one of the best high shot capacity rifles on the market...personally i would,nt have one (dont like the look) but i,ve shot a few and am impressed with build quality, accuracy and consistency.....imo

    Ugly buddy

    Hi Steff, I,ve briefly used both guns without problems but I'll say this:
    If men bought women (or vice versa) you wouldn't buy an ugly one even if they did cook and clean!!:D
    Why on earth would you need to have such a high shot capacity on the average day out unless the guns are rated at 60+ ftlbs??:confused:
