OK, time to get my own rifle as the good lady is getting a tad crabby when I use hers.

She has a Steyr LG110 (HP) and I have to say I quite like it -seems very accurate.

Looking in the local shop the only other that takes my fancy is an EV2 (IV).

Don't know much about these though. I see quite a few around but how do they compare to a Steyr?

personally i would go for a 2nd hand Ev2. Think there may be one or two for sale on Shooting the brreeze.
about 750.
Put the money you save towards a good scope and Jsb Exacts.

If your talking Ft you could pop along to Mendips shooting ground sunday and see rd 2 of the swefta league in action , where you will see some of the countries top Ft shooters using Ev2.

In that case get in touch with East Devon FTC, ask for Jimmer and say Rich told you to speak to him. Jimmer is now running the club but Chris Jones still owns it as far as I know.

You can get details from the SWEFTA website.

If you can get yourself here sunday say btween 10 -2

Mendip Shooting Ground
Park Farm
Haydon
West Horrington
Wells
BA5 3EH

you will see all sorts of Ft rigs in use at rd2 of the Swefta series.
http://www.swefta.org.uk/

Polite asking once a shooter has finished the course and carefull handling usually sees folk happy to show you they Guns.
Its only when you sit with a rig in your hands you will know if its right for you.

I dont mind folks such as yourself having a go with my ev2

Hope to see you there

Simon Evans
