About 3 weeks ago someone, on one of the gun forums I've been watching, was asking about a brand of German airguns - I think it was Weihrauch brand pistol they were asking about.

I'm not sure it was on this forum; but, if it was and anyone can find the thread (I couldn't find it - but my search-fu isn't all that great), I found an outfit in Arizona (www.airgunsofarizona.com) that advertises in Guns & Ammo and sells that brand of airguns.

I'm not familiar with that particular brand, but I can say that from what I do know, spring - piston or spring - air , guns are preferable to pump models. And in most things you'll have a tough time beating German quality of workmanship. I did go to the link, and the prices do appear to be on the high end of what you will pay for a quality spring-air gun, but that's exactly what I would expect for German manufacturing.

I'm not familiar with their pistols, but Gamo makes some fairly nice rifles at somewhat better prices than those. Gamo is still among the higher tiers of quality so you aren't going to save a lot.

Many years ago, back in England, I knew a competitive air gunner. Back then the manufacturer favored by most competitors was Feinwerkbau (also German). They are relatively high-end, with their pistols being around the $2k region.

Airguns of America are a big player in the US on-line market, they carry pretty much everything.

Thank you gentlemen -

I'm just in the process of making the rounds through the forums to see if anyone remembers (or, can find) the post I was thinking of - so far, no luck.

Someone had an older model air gun (I think it was a family heirloom, but don't know if it was a pistol or a rifle) that he was looking for some parts for. He was trying to find information about the manufacturer and where to find service/parts. I'm pretty sure(?) it was manufactured by Weihrauch - but . . .

I'll keep checking - Thanks

My own limited experience with airguns is the Gamo Whisper I keep by the back door for any varmints that need discouraging. Thanks for everyone's input.

I have a number of airguns, springers, pump, (.177 cal) and pre-charged pneumatics (PCP) (in .22cal).

There's a difference in the way you have to shoot them as opposed to the way you shoot powder burners.

Ted's website (http://www.TedsHoldOver.com) is a pretty interesting site with a lot of information.

I have both the Benjamin Marauder and the Airforce Airgun Condor SS in .22 cal. They are fun and inexpensive to shoot.

I plan to do most of my future purchases either through Pyramydair http://www.pyramydair.com/ or locally through the Airgun Depot http://www.airgundepot.com/ (outstanding videos and information).
