    Youngs Air gun center is a good place to buy PCP, Also if you pm me I know a couple of guys in wellington selling a couple of guns.
    I have been looking for one myself but want to buy a rim fire first , and I have been putting feelers out their on a airgun nz site.
    Another point is , on trade me there seems to be a couple for sale.

    Yes Youngs is great but mikee is in Nelson, PCP's are not cheap, I would want to try something expensive before making any decisions. His site does have a catalog on it which would give you an idea of prices bearing in mind a PCP needs a way of recharging of which vary in price and effort and convenience.

    Remember, if you want to shoot a PCP a lot and/or high power, you will need to fill from a dive bottle and have a dive shop or other filling station for the bottle close to you. If you don't shoot a lot and shoot lower power (around 14 fpe or less) , a hamdpump is an option. In the latter case a quality springer is also a good option.

    I have just entered into the PCP air rifle, rabbit hole of expense, with the purchases, of an FX streamline, in .25 cal. scope and a hand pump. xmass pressy to self.
    I am amazed by the accuracy, its way better than any of the .22 rimfires I own, 50m I can get 10 shots into a thumbnail sized group, Thought the wind defiantly pushes pellets around, more than I expected.
    Already got tired, of the hand pump, Have a Nomad electric pump, sitting on the floor, just picked up from the post office.

    Knocked this hare over last night with the Zbroia Kozak, it was about 90m and slightly down hill of me so I lined it up and squeezed the trigger... He just flopped forward then over onto his side with no kicking or anything. Cooking him up at a scouts camp tonight to show the kids what it tastes like.

    What are the 22 rimfire rifles you own or owned?

    The Bunny on the left I rushed the shot because his ears were down, as you can see he didn't have any. Not sure why, perhaps fighting?

    Bummer this thread died off.
    Won't put up photos have in varmiting and small game but
    this is one of the latest of the, now not coming to near the pear pear tree starling and mynas, after 7 odd days of constant hammering with 1322.
    Been throwing them over the fence and the first wild cat showed up last night it tripped the spots on side of house, which made me aware of it.
    So hopefully sometime in the next week it can go live with the possum that met the sig asp20 a few nights back over the fence as well.

    Ahh naf it. I'm gonna throw pics, one from each springer.
    I'm keen to see this thread up and running again.
    Looks like it stopped around covid, covids over. Heaps of great new air rifles.
    I have no dought more air rifle shooters, and more coming as gun laws get more stupid.
    Tx200 mk3 .22 awesome gun.
    Bit heavy for all day hunting for me. Hated taking it through scrubby stuff as such beautiful finish. Swapped for sig asp20 in end.

    SIG asp20 .177 another awsome springer. Much more suited to me with synthetic stock and scratch resistant finish. Accurate nice to shoot.

    GAMO roadster .22 first rifle when getting back into airguns last year. Most problematic gun I've ever had. Gave away in end after getting over constantly having to work on it. Killed scopes, damaged pellets when loading 10x mag. ( had removed mag and using as single shot by this pic) Reason I brought the tx. Did take its fair share of critters

    1322 put 18inch barrel on and stock. Hopefully will get round to modding valve next month. Small bird gun. Have shot more with this than with all other guns combined. By far my favorite, just limited in application, but so nice to use and accurate as to 25m ( which is about as far as I shoot it on current piston/valve set up) a fun gun.

    Also have crosman 362 which I haven't really used apart from sighting in. Need to put a new scope on it. Hoping to mod it at some stage. Haven't shot any critters with.
