    Do other popular air rifles use this type of barrel set up?

    Hard to wrap your head around how that could possibly be consistent day in day out.

    Jan,

    I'm so happy you have taken the plunge. I've been considering doing the same but now I will anxiously await your results.

    Here is hoping air rifles can cut the mustard at 50 yards.

    A painful pic of TDX's barrel

    When I first saw this pic it took my breath away.

    If anyone can bring this barrel back it will be Bill Calfee.

    Here's hoping!

    Pedro,

    I'm not sure. I know there was a lot of talk about the international rules being changed to allow 8.5 lbs rifles, and 12 power scopes.

    Do you know if these changes were implemented?

    Since we don't know what you hope to accomplish with the rifle it is kinda hard to tell you the cost.
