Thinking of Getting ONE of these 1,000's

This area is for the discussion of BB or airsoft sub machine guns, and or other small arms such as pellets. No home made BB or airsoft guns should ever be used in a match where you shoot other people... they are too powerful.

Would the recoil be too harsh for the shooter to shoot accurately, or just too harsh for the gun to shoot accurately after a few shots? You're talking to someone who has to fire .30-'06's and .300 Winchester Magnums quite commonly. Recoil doesn't phase me as much as noise anymore. :)

I was actually thinking about getting a Beeman springer one of these days whenever I move up to a VERY nice gun. I'm not much of a fan with pre-charged pneumatics. I've seen those Dianas as well. It's gonna be a while before I save up the dough, though.

Don´t forget that springers don´t recoil in the same way firearms do. The second you pull the trigger there´s a whole lot of piston movement and bounce that happens before the pellet actually leaves the barrel. Take a 0.22 rimfire rifle, it recoils much less than a powerful springer yet the projectile it fires has a lot more muzzle energy.

This is the reason why some scopes rated for large caliber firearms will break when placed on a powerful springer.

i have a gamo hunter maxima combo, and am quite happy with it, it provides great accuracy, high velocity (1,000 fps) and was $293.00 ive been able to break pencils in half from 50 meters (using a high quality pellet of course). i recommend the rws pellet sampler for this rifle (all the pellets are very accurate with this rifle in the sampler).

EDIT: WOOPS, didnt see that you already put an order on a gamo 1000! hope you enjoy your gamo rifle like i do

Why don't you go for the astounding 1,600 fps (with a 5.4 grain pellet) of the <a href="http://www.cabelas.com/prod-1/0039860228161a.shtml">Gamo Extreme</a> (a rebadged 1250) , apparently <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVX0y2Pcj_s">you can kill pigs with it</a> [:0]

Heh... no thanks. Here we hunt boars, and I ain't gunning against a boar with nothing more than a .22 Magnum. Sorry. [:p]

I have a winchester .177 Piston powered. Velocity is a little over 1050 fps leaving the barrel. Very accurate with a scope. Had it for about 4 years. Solid wood stock very nice stuff. Its crazy, it will shoot through pennies, an inch of wood, tvs ahhh the fun!
