My super 177 Air Arm's Prosport with a FalconT50LM (S) ( S for Silver), An excellent 60mm OG scope, even the moon looks good through it on 30x Note the 1inch thick sponge under the stock, just in front of the C of G. This seems to do a perfect job of absorbing the "springer shock."I lift the rear of the stock clear of the rear support with my left hand when aiming and taking the shot.

Only got this a few weeks before Christmas 2013 I have shot about 90 shot so far at 24 yds in the freezing cold wind. LOVE IT No Problems, its very quiet with the Whisper silencer. It does 800fps with 177 AA Diabolo field 8.4 grain pellets, and is very quickly out of the barrel from the trigger click. Weighs 9 lbs with the MTC Genesis 5-20x 50. Image taken with a Nikon D40 with the 18-55 G 2 ED kit lens. Hand held very slow in dull conditions.Update August 2016. still love it but now it likes Daystate Li 177's no longer made. I Have 2 tins left.

The Airwolf now with Daystate reflex silencer and Caldwell Bipod. 177 RWS Superfields fit the 10shot mag perfectly, as the waist on the pellet is grabbed by the O ring which actually pulls the pellet into the mag so it is underflush. They also shoot perfectly.Update August 2016 the reflex silencer was too noisy, it now has a Weirauch and makes no more noise than a cat's sneeze. It likes Daystate Li's now .

Me shooting my Walther LGV Competion Ultra .177 caliber . The only pellet it seems to like, is the Air Arms Diabolo Field 4.52. Here I am shooting off a bag full of bubble wrap. Update Aug 2016 It now requires cocking twice to ensure the trigger has been set.So its Break barrel make the mechanism click, bounce the mechanism again and only now bring the barrel back up to latch.

The super quiet Walther likes to be supported on it's Cof G with a bit of gentle shoulder pressure.

This .177 air rifle is just so polite . It is easy to cock and load with a soft rustle of positive latching precision clicks..The semi matt varnished beech-wood stock, responded to burnishing with car wax to a guitar like polished finish. With the Sidewinder scope and it's 30mm DM70 Dampa mount, it does weigh 12.5 pounds but it is a delight to shoot. Very accurate if shot right .with AA Diabolo fields 4.52.
My AA Prosport 177 seems to shoot any pellet into the same 1" group , but with Daystate Li its pellet on pellet at 24 yds if I shoot it how it likes to be shot. Shown here before Birchwood Casey Gun oil treatment.Learning to shoot a springer can be quite humbling, with many fragile eureka moments. Looking for that reliable hold and balance is the holy grail.

Prosport +TruOil 2.jpg
The Prosport after 4 coats of cloth-applied Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil, rubbing down lightly between coats with four noughts wire wool. The final coat was again buffed with the wire wool then burnished with car wax . There is still some grain so it actually looks like polished wood. I have treated many crossbow stocks in the past with the super old Furniglass hardset two part . This Tru-Oil applies like oily french polish then behaves like hard-setting varnish. It is excellent stuff. I reckon 7 or 8 coats could get that guitar-like finish, if that's what you like. Don't apply it thickly. This evening I retried AA Diabolo fields 4.52. and wow, excellent. Another fragile eureka moment?
