I was on another forum that seems to have run out of air, so I'll hang around here for a bit if you don"t mind.

I have a Crosman 1322 optioned up to 12+FPE with 18" brrl and 10.5 FPE with 10" brrl.
I have had 16FPE with 25pumps but blow piston seals after a dozen or shots, so settle on 15 pumps max. pellets I use are RWS Superfields. I also have a DPT modular silencer for it that means in company you have to explain that it was the gun not you.

I have recently purchased a Cometa Fusion .22 Gas Piston Mk2 rifle from a great online store in Whangarei. I have a Hawke 4x32AO scope on it and at 15 yards it makes a single ragged hole with five shots rested. With a higher mag scope I am sure it would be deadly accurate out to 30 yards or more. It puts out around 16FPE depending on pellet but I have found the H&N FTT about the best so far. It takes Rats and Mynahs at 18 yards (my bait station) with ease.

Cheers everyone
DD

HI DD, I have a 1377 and it's real accurate. I think everyone should have either one in their collection.

Hidayat still likes the sight of blood I see.
Ive looked sideways at the Cometa range a few times.  Spanish but the must be better than our 
Spanish Rail ferry and maybe a step up from Gamo.
Don't see many Cometas around here and I really don't need another airgun.

Hi Novagun

This Cometa Fusion is a Gas Piston and pellet on pellet accurate and is lovely to shoot. I think they are meant to be around 700 fps with .22 FTT pellets but mine is around 630 but it's so nice to shoot and looks so good I  think I'll just keep it as is. Excellent build quality from what I can see, a strip down may prove otherwise but after around 3000 pellets nothing has come loose. It's not a powerhouse but it kills what it shoots at.

Well that sounds encouraging. I looked at the Diana n-tec 34 (.177)  The onhe I shot was a .22 and it was not really that smooth and the recoil was a bit more than I expected. The .22 had an advertised  MV of 1100 fps.  The .177 1100 fps: too fast. Then of course was price. $1000 and then more for a scope. 
Far too much money for plinking and taking the odd rabbit when the chaps on the NZ Rimfire forum say those Norinco JW 15s. ( I think I got that part right) are able to be titivated into a very good rifle and cheap as well. I also had a shot with the N-tec 350. Not for me at any price.
So Diana dollars = nothing from me.
I agree that gas ram is nice to shoot but no more accurate than a  wire springer. No spring torque. I like my Gamo IGT but it still needs some more tweaking and I have run out of ideas for the time being

Anyway back to Cometa. A Fusion --- Maybe. They are a bit more friendly in the price department. And I really don't need one.
