Airguns of the Month.
« on: August 09, 2012, 01:42:46 PM »
If you weren't aware, Airgun Shooter magazine run a monthly update on the top 5 selling airguns in the UK from the previous month, and as I thought it would be helpful info for Planet Airgun members to know, I contacted the Editor of Airgun Shooter magazine, Nigel Allen, who has very kindly given permission to use the info on here, so many thanks to Nigel, and Blaze publishing for being so gracious. http://www.airgun.tv/

So from now onwards, I will post an updated list every month, so you guys can see what's hot, and what's not.

Please feel free to add your thoughts and comments at any time.



The following information was taken from the September 2012 edition of Airgun Shooter, and was compiled to the week ending 27th July 2012

1/. Weihrauch HW100

2/. Umarex Beretta 92

3/. BSA Scorpion

4/. Air Arms S410

5/. Hatsan Model 85


At this time of year, what with the warm weather and the Summer Holidays, gunshop owners typically expect to be shifting lots of budget priced springers, but as you can see, that has not been the case recently, with 3 PCP rifles, and a CO2 pistol in the top 5.

A spring powered rifle does make an appearance in the chart though with the Hatsan Model 85, so at least part of the expectation has proved correct.

SMK usually have a strong showing, but this is the first time in ages I haven't seen their name on the list.

It's nice to see some home grown British produce in the list, with the BSA Scorp and S410 maintaining a strong and regular following.


So what's gonna happen next month.......will the brand new Walther LGV make the chart, or even top it, as springer connoisseurs rush out to add one to their collection?

I'm surprised me that th HW100 was the best seller as there seems to be far more HW101's turning up at clubs than 10's lately unless they are counting both of them together.
Stupid boy.

Ain't seen a 101 at the club yet.......but then again.....I've never seen a .177 there either!!!


Seriously though, people who can afford top end rifles, are generally not the ones most affected by the credit crunch, so it stands to reason why expensive guns are still doing well.

After all the research I did looking for my "one-for-all" rifle, I'm not surprised the HW100 is top of the pack.
It beat all the guns I preferred the look of and it's astonishing performance (12 x 30mm targets at 70 yards in 13 shots to name but one test) makes you love it in the end anyway.

Damn those Germans; they know what they're doing.

Yep. And Lamborghini.

But then, Ford is in bed with Mazda and the Jap's have just bought Volvo.
