Hi there, I wanted to take this opportunity to review the Gunpower Stealth 200 in .177 calibre. I love this gun, it usually takes priority over more expensive PCP air rifles, and is my preffered "weapon of choice" when I go to the range.
I find the Stealth feel's lighter than the scales say, this is down to the rifles weight bias to the rear and the majority of the weight is supported by the shooters shoulder and chest.
Super accurate and manoverable an easy gun to use. It is by no way faultless, as I find that the .177 does not have the shot-count of the .22 or .25 cal options available. I am only achieving around the 100 shots this is the perenial .177 problem in that it always takes mor air to move a smaller slug. I am still getting around 11.5fpe and firing 10.5grain crosamn pellets at 700fps. Incidently these guns work best with heavier pellets and are much more accurate using them.
Now to the only real downside to these guns and that is the scope mounting. As the rear bottle is so high in respect of the barrel, so high mounts are the order of the day. I am using one of the new MTC Connect scopes. I find this scope to be in keeping withthe design of the gun and adds a nice "tactical" look.
All in all I think this gun is a definite winner in looks and function.
