Well I had time to get out the camera and get the 850s in thier element - pics from this weekend and last weekend.

Backyard shootin'

177 with Niko Stirling Platnium (spelling?) NightEater 6x24x44 and bkl dbl strap mounts

22 with Niko 6x12x50 30mm tube and Accushot 1pc mount

Both with Mac1 AS/PB and 9 oz tanks. Love em' both - thanks to you guys for the help. I first posted here I think middle/end of October saying the classic 'So what can you tell me about the 850 - looks interesting..."

I posted mfg info in post that is tracking that info.

Here you go!










































































~~~~~~~~~~~PRAISE GOD for being able to have all this stuff!~~~~~~~~~~~~

~GOD BLESS~

Very  nice pics, I especially like the family portrait at the end
So John.... which is you favorite one... out of all the guns, I know the stock answer.. I like them all for their different traits, but if you could have only one and you had to choose between them all, which one would you end up with?

If it is one favorite out of all then can I atleast have a favorite pistol and a favorite rifle?

If not I can come up with one favorite single one .....

Let me know and I'll decide.


GOD BLESS!

Well to be fair, I guess... one pistol and one rifle. out of the whole bunch <IMG height=14 src="/images/wink.gif" width=14>
I guess the question really is.. if you had to sell them all, but were allowed to keep only one of each, which would they be?&nbsp;

Grteat way to put perspective on it. So here goes...

If I had to sell everything and only keep one gun
Winner: TX200 MkII imported by RWS and tuned by Jim M. himself. Sweet glass and nice wood and one butter smooth trigger




Upgraded the glass and mounts to this after selling a few things...



Only one pistol...
Winner: Crosman MountainAir 1322. Full power mods, 24" barrel, trigger tune and custom RB brass laminat wood. My first custom gun. Sweet shooter and very accurate

remove the cosmetic MB and there is a machined barrel end

Scratch this fat belly - fills my paws nice


I actually thought on this during the day while working - that is my story and I am sticking to it!

GOD BLESS my friends~

All nice guns John. Good choices.
I&nbsp;have sold&nbsp;almost all my guns.... I had to choose between my HW97 and TX...&nbsp;I kept the TX. Next I had to choose between the&nbsp;TX and the B-40.... I kept the B-40.&nbsp;then I had to&nbsp;choose between my Diana 350 and 460... no contest, the 460 stayed. I had&nbsp;4 Gamos too. 2 CFXes&nbsp;a 1250&nbsp;and Extreme.(both made in England) I sold the Extreme and kept the 1250,&nbsp;Rich from Mich had converted it to .20 and it has a GRT trigger. I sold both&nbsp;the CFXes as well.... despite the fact that they were both sweet shooters. One of them tuned and triggered&nbsp;by Rich....&nbsp;I recall swearing that&nbsp;I would Never part with that one .......
So now all&nbsp;I have left are a handful of the guns&nbsp;I enjoy shooting the most.... plus a few new 850's&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

Roald.

to sell - I understand. I had gotten into mountain bikes and was over equiped for what I actually 'needed' and slimed down the stable. The airguns for me and my son are only about 2 1/2 years into the hobby. So we have a few but not a large collection. I sold a few classic Crosman pistols to buy a scope etc... think the ones I have now will do for quite awhile. Ever since the 850s showed up I have been going to them with a few shots at best from the TX or others...

I have shot a hw at a local match - nice rifle. Sounds like you have had some nice springers. The 850 meets our needs very well for now - I still need to get the hammer spring and either make a shroud or get a Q..... But the mods are the most fun for me. I'm trying to get my machine shop tools together. Don;t have much now except a drill press and then wood working tools...

GOD BLESS!

Thanks for noticing the BigHit. It is an aluminum frame. I want to say the bike was bought and built in 03/04? Sad to say I don't remember exactly. I was head into bikes at the time. It is one of the keepers though - like riding a jeep around. Rear travel is up to 8 inches. Fox vanilla RC coil over with piggyback. XTR fron/rear der and shifters. Stock Hayes hydro disks. Custom chain ring guard with roler so I can run three rings up front. Sweet Shiver inverted front fork which I have yet ridden to its limits. CK front hub. Telescoping seat post and one of my favorites - Sumo wrestler squeaky horn. Weighs in just under 50lbs. It is what it is. I don;t mind the weight and it pedals up hill. I ride with my son and that is the best part.

GOD BLESS!
