    Nice colorful photos. I enjoyed viewing them.

    Hey airgunr, I noticed in your profile that you collect air guns. I also collect airguns, but I collect the spring-air variety. I have a benjamin phnuematic rifle in my collection. My favorite hunter is a .77caliber Beeman R-1 tuned and accurized.

    Do you hunt with any of your guns?

    Thanks, I need a bigger telephoto to get closer to them.

    I collect the really old airguns from the 16th - 19th centurys. Ones like Lewis & Clark took with them or ones the Austrians used against Napoleon in the early 1800's.

    The oldest one I have is a German made Butt reservoir made somewhere between 1714-32, I can't pinpoint it any better than that. The one with the largest bore is a .62 calibre monster from 1817 made by Stautenmayer, it's a Butt reservoir also.

    You can go to this link and look under "Antique Air Guns" for pictures of a cane/rifle I'm working on for a article in a airgun related publication. It was made in 1856.

    I do shoot, compete and hunt with modern airguns. I've got several PCP airguns, the one I use the most to hunt with is a .22 Theoben Rapid 12.

    I shoot Field Target with a Daystate CR94 & Styer LG100. I also have a bunch of spring guns. My favorite spring hunter is the TX200 in .22 tuned by Jim Macarri.

    WOW! I am totally impressed with your collection! I'd be embarrassed to have my collection mentioned on the same page as yours.

    What is the fps mv for that TX200 .22?

    I think it's in the mid 700's, I haven't chrono'd it but it's hell on the tree rats around here.... :lol:

    We've probably drifted off the map for the photo forum. Here's a link to a forum I visit for the airguns.

    http://login.prospero.com/dir-login...nDST=http://forums.delphiforums.com/my-forums

    I hope that link works for you. If not find the Delphiforums and got to Making, Repairing and Collecting Airguns section. Delphi also has several other good airgun forums.
