Sadly I sold my FN19 Lighthunter some time ago and it was the worst thing I've ever done!
- looks great
- Magazines are resonably priced (£11)
- decent shot capacity
- not at all pellet fussy, though H&N Exact and Barracuda Match gave the best results
- reasonably priced for a rifle of this quality
- Slightly noisy when shot, magazines also rattle a bit... not a big complaint though given how cheap the magazines are. As for the ring when the rifle is shot I shot consecutive bunny's multiple times so I guess it annoys me more than them!
I used a Hawke Niteye 3-9x40 on this, zeroed at 10 metres, and didn't seem able to miss. Easily the best hunting rifle I've ever owned.
It's light but I fit slings to all my rifles so I can keep my hands free without having to put the rifle down, however I'd reccomend caution when putting a sling on due to the nature of the stock.
NEVER cock the rifle with the barrel tilted upwards - the pellets fall back into the action. At some point this will cause the action to become stiff or jam altogether.
There's nothing I didn't like about this gun really so I'll stop here - if I were to choose a gun to use for the rest of my life this would be it!
