Look what Evanix made...

Yes, all kinds of non-FX airguns have a place here. Do consider the proper locations for these discussions though.

Sigh, you'll never see these air rifles in the uk, but if you fortunate enough to live in free part of the world:

You've just got to admire it, I think they are very Impressive from a technology point of view 8-) and would provide a very different and highly fun kind of target shooting :mrgreen:

Its an old and proven technology, basically the same as have been used in Airsoft rifles for years now...

An electric motor is used to cycle the action, true semis use air instead...

Loose accuracy would be an understatement, but it's the fun factor of obliterating targets totally that appeals :mrgreen:

A more practical and accurate option would be the FX Revolution or Monsoon semi automatic, but.... we can't have those in the uk :roll:

What about double action revolver style rifles, like the 1077 by Crosman?

To be honest even if the Evanix was on sale here it's not something I'd actually consider buying because I think you'd get bored very quickly with the novelty of full auto mode and end up using it as a standard single shot rifle. The Crosman - well it's cheap for sure even over here but I've never been into CO2 and it's not what I'd want either.

I've seen the Revolution in action on youtube movies including the excellent Ted's HoldOver channel and it looks a very versatile, practical, and fun rifle to shoot. I think FX have the balance and choice absolutely right across their product range.

I was more thinking about the legal aspect, can you own a 1077 in the UK theise days or is it (legally) viewed as a semi?

It's an interesting question Johnny, the Crosman 1077's are on sale in the uk so from a legal point of view they are OK to own and use as they are a revolver type action - which at the moment doesn't count.
From what I have read, if a manufacturer brings a semi automatic air rifle (non revolver type action) into the uk, the various laws will remain the same but that rifle would get added to the general definitions of what they class as "specially dangerous", this I think is why we don't have them for sale here.

Based on the above, my interpretation is that you can't have semi automatic airguns unless they have a revolver type action - interesting :?........ Not sure what would happen about a full automatic with a revolver type action though!

On a totally different level, you can have fully automatic plastic BB or paintball guns.
