    Absolutely Awesome Collection. I had a 1377 back in the day and a 766. Great childhood memories with those.
  9. Nothing like hunting small game with a good air rifle and scope. I need to get another quality air rifle cause the cheap commie one I have now is not cutting it.

    Oh yeah... Sweet collection you have going there.

    Wow, some real beauties there!

    My buddy has been having a small varmint problem, so I brought my trusty 30-year-old Crosman American Classic 766 to him. As his varmints come at night, I went ahead and removed the 4x scope. We shot a couple dozen 7.9gr. hollow points to check the zero of the iron sights Sunday afternoon and got excellent offhand results with apples and paper cups at 20 yards. I'm thinking of picking up a Beeman SS1000 in .22 later this year, but other things are on the list ahead of it.
  11. You reckon you could have made those pictures a little bigger so those of us on dial-up could run to the store, while we waited for them to download? :D

    I've got a couple of air rifles. Nothing fancy or anything, but they're fun. A Daisey 880 and a Crossman Storm XT.
  12. I have an old CZ Slavia 631 That I love iron-sight plinking with. I have had it for years, but it is still a fun little (actually pretty big and heavy lol) pellet rifle.

    Nice looking pieces you have there!
  13. I'm interested in buying either an air, or CO2, pistol or rifle, but I don't know what to look for. My price range is around $50, I could probably swing up to 100, but that is not likely. I'm torn between a pistol and a rifle. I like the idea of target practice in the back yard.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a rifle or pistol under $100? .22, Pellet, or .177 is fine, either/or.
  14. My turn!

    I have an RWS 36, an ancient tack driving Crosman model 102, a Crosman model 1400 Pumpmaster that is on its way, a neato lil Walther PPK/S BB gun and several Smith&Wesson 78g/79g's.

    Broom, check out the crosman line of co2 guns. They have a pistol 2250? that is right around $55 and is a good gun with lots of potential for hop ups. There is even a custom shop at the cross man site that lets you configure your own 2250 based gun to meet your needs and or price point.

    I would recommend checking this option out and erring on the side of the $100 range and youll have a good gun. I specced one out with everything I fancied there, Barrel brake, weaver sight, long steel breech, 10.5" barrel, Coco Bolo grips and more and it came in at $180.

    But even the entry level gun can be built up in the future iyour tight on funds. Plus I know someone who can get huge power out of these if you want it modified, See my S&W 78G thread. The powerplants are very similar.
