Beeman RX (HW90)
By the time I was in University, I picked up my own gun, a Beeman RX (HW 90) in .20 caliber. This rifle was the next evolution of spring airguns. Powered with a Theoben gas ram, it was different from the guns my father brought me up with that were powered with traditional springs. The RX is designed for hunting, the gas ram, unlike springs it can be left cocked indefinitely without worry of spring set.
I've neglected airguns since leaving University. Until just recently my interest in pellet guns has rekindled. I've been browsing youtube and the internet regarding airgunning and it seems springers have gone out of favor. Now most seem to shoot precharge pneumatics (PCP) for hunting. Slow to follow trends I may one day join the PCP fan club but for now I'll settle for these sporters.
