#1 F-CLASS AIR

Mon Oct 17, 2016 11:07 am

Hello from Spain,

We are shooting several years ago F-CLASS rimfire and we are introducing the f-class air, designed for air rifles from 177" caliber to big-bores. Based on the original F-CLASS targets and shooting position, I invite you to test and you could see a new fany and very competitive discipline for your rimfire and air rifle...

WEB SITE: http://www.clubbrcanarias.com/F-CLASS/index.html

We have thought on the US shooters and we re-design the din-a3 paper size targets in to us letter-tabloid size for your comfort...

Been doing last two months at FT club an informal BR comp after the shoot. Anything goes can take off bench, bum bag, bipod, sitting some do whilst others are now doing prone.
Exposed to the elements no wind flags nothing at sub 12ft/lb.
So far we have used the standard 25 yard targets shortest done was 30 yards, one at 35, 3 at 50 yards and two using larger prints 75 yards.

Can be so frustrating at times aiming off and seeing go straight to aiming off and hitting next box already shot negating that 10.
Scoring if pellet hole breaks the inner line so outer black counts as a 5.
If a jobs worth doing, do it right or not at all.

WHOAH !

Sounds very challenging and stimulating in having to learn a new discipline Jon..and thats coming from you :o

- So, It's really quite a challenging sport and eye opener for those who think Its "easy" - on the contrary..

the bonus I suppose:

- No more sore knees, muscle aches, joints, from having to lumber your kit for hours over a course etc..
- No more rain in the face- drenched kit, that needs stripping and carefully drying/wiping down
- No more cold chills to the bone

plenty of benefits IF its done indoors; but of course, could be outdoors but in a sheltered position...letting the shooter challenge the wind and sunlight environment (more fun!) ...with a warm cup of soup or cocoa whenever one feels like it.. :lol:

Impressive...but wait...

These 2 air rifles (mucho $$$$$) are MEGA IMPRESSIVE ! both 15.4Joules .... :shock:

#1.Anschutz 9015 - the world's first pimped by UK Guru Jon Harris - ...Ok, in still air, inside Jumbo Hanger - so no air breeze, and at 80 Yards (73 meters) - http://pimpmyairgun.com/viewtopic.php?f=75&t=1629

#2. ISP AirStream at 100 Yards (Made by other Guru - Sean Hill ) - viewtopic.php?f=162&t=1066&start=10

True but the AR20 needs putting right, has naff cocking and tolerable trigger.
Resting off the forend is a no no, tolerable close to where front screws to breach area once sorted.
If a jobs worth doing, do it right or not at all.

When budget is concerned...

£595 = Euro 660> http://www.solware.co.uk/weihrauch-hw10 ... -air-rifle (even cheaper if you buy 2nd hand )

My idea has always been for a Budget / but good durable quality:

1) Get Weihrauch 101 - do no modification -

Do modification = Spend More $$$

2) Get Cz barrel (Barrel forge ; so buy X 2 or X 3 > http://pimpmyairgun.com/viewtopic.php?f=237&t=1775 )
3) Get Alu or Titanium air cylinder
4) Get Gary Cane laminate stock (or whatever you want)
5) Invest in Leupold X 45 or whatever....


Again, that's my own personal preference...since I want to do this to a Weihrauch HW101 (as I own all the other German brands already ;) )

Another 2 to seriously consider:

1#. Air Arms MPR FT Euro 844(discontinued by Air Arms) - Walther barrel - very very accurate - No modification required (minimal , but very easy to Modify)
> http://www.balistas.com/air-rifles/air- ... r-ft-45mm/

2#. CZ Euro 475 - http://www.euroshooting.eu/en/index.php?detail=CZ200S (but small stock and more suited for Women or Junior)
