some pretty pricey guns? Granted, the shooter is very good,and the gun is tuned (heavily modded?) but still....

I should throw my ol' 57 in the dumpster, except I really like it. First gun I ever lube tuned and still decent.

Incredible that he took that field!

Kinda like Ron and his 78 taking the Nats.

I mean, he beat three USFT's and a Steyr, several TX200's, a Diana 54, and a Prosport, among others.

The 57 tune kit from Archer was shoehorned in, he made an o-ring piston head, guide, and muzzle weight and put in a high grade spring.

Shooting under 800 fps...he must be really good at range-finding.

I've got a 58 that's been on the back burner for a while...but I'll never shoot as well as Mr Hull.

Looking at the gun, I suspect it's almost recoiless, and that what little there is is straight back...the recipe for an easy to shoot springer.

That's pretty impressive! But the fact is some of the Chinese guns are tack drivers and if you got to know the gun well I could see it could shoot with the best. I need to dust my 58 off and see how well it shoots after seeing this!

at a fun shoot awhile back. The other guys with newer springers didn't hit any. I hit four before I missed with an ancient Peak B4-2 underlever. First gun I ever rebuilt. That was kinda' cool. Must have been the Hawke scope.

at air pistol silhouette with a crosman 357, it was so worth the dozens of hours spent modding the gun. 40 yeas later I can picture the looks on the shooters faces.

It did kinda take the wind outa my sails when the guy with the (stock other than a trigger job and rifle scope(taco hold)) daisy 747 beat us all.
