Fellow forum members, some true classics for your perusal. :)

The idea was to do some pellet testing, but then I got carried away and started plinking 8-)

Vintage 10m match air rifles (550-600 pfs with Exacts) and diopter sights can be surprisingly accurate...

Walther Groups 35yd 28Apr14 (Small).jpg


35 yard, 5-shot groups, 0.52" for the LGV-S and 0.67" for the LGR. The later required me to aim-off as I didn't want to disturb the zero, so I'm not surprised that the group opened up a little.

Anyone else got some golden oldies?

Happy shooting, Nick

Three superb quality classic air rifles you have there Nick. I have a Feinwerkbau 300s Recoilless which is currently fitted with a short Zeiss scope, a brilliant rifle and great fun to shoot.
I'm just back from the range, I've been shooting a couple of classic Winchester's; a .44-40 and a .38-56 with a combined age of over 200 years. They're still capable of producing a one hole group from the bench, I better get 'em cleaned up! ;)

some nice set ups there mate very clean looking rifles dear sir, & I am also thinking about getting some diopter sights for a rifle in the next up & coming months. as I first use diopter sights when uk neil did my hw77 v-mach kit only a couple of shots in his workshop :? but it made a change from scopes.
however I used to use open sights a lot when I first started shooting back in the early 80's so I might have a fun rifle ( don't know which or what as yet ) to plink about & have some good old fun shooting at some ranges using the above diopter sights sights.

also Brian you are still a sod for having them nice rifles mate :lol: :P

Get over it Kenny, Brian and I obviously have good taste. :lol:

Diopter? I may have a Gamo one you can have as part of our "special deal", they are only a pressed tin affair but are ok. If you're looking at buying then go for the "Swiss Arms" version which is more robust but still at the budget end of the spectrum http://nmproducts.co.uk/swiss-arms-diopter-sight-p-67094.html.
