Now we are all stuck without some long range work. I need something to use in the garage, ive just about got 6 yds to play with, this is perfect for plinking or bell target shooting.

Great for the pistol, but I want a cheap plinking air rifle, typically these are 6ft lbs, but more power won't hurt!

Whats your thoughts, recommendations. No bank breakers please!

Got myself a Unicorn! Almost impossible to find in the UK
Steyr LG1.
Now need to fashion a bell target for 6 yd shooting! :) The guy I got it from has some stunning target rifles for sale.

First 10 shots standing unsupported at 10m with the Steyr LG1 Match
I had forgotten how good these target air rifles could be. 
Loving it!!

Now looking forward to playing at Bell target 6yds, should be fun 🙂

Well, it is a rare beast in the UK, there is plenty of Anschutz 2000 series, FWB 300's, Walther LG's and the odd Diana 100 about, but no Steyr's, and Im a sucker for the Steyr stuff.
The guy I got it off has a whole collection of early 90s target rifles and I actually called him for a Walther LG90 which is a cool gun, but chatting away he went through what he had for sale, soon as he said Steyr, I was sold!
Wasn't the cheapest he had, but it is unmarked and recently serviced by Steyr in York.
All in all its a stunning side lever charging air rifle, recoilless and super accurate.
