    The traditional answer for FAC air rifles would be a Theoben Rapid, nice accurate rifle when fitted with a regulator with a good shot count as well.

    Also worth considering are an Air Arms S410, Daystate or an FX Cyclone. Buying an existing FAC rifle would the cheapest option but you could also buy a normal one and get it converted by someone like Ben Taylor at Milbro whom I can't recomend enough

    Theoben for me. Have had one for years running about 24 ft/ib. Very accurate, reliable.

    Theoben Rapid all the way

    Great suggestions - thanks - and please keep them coming. I should just mention that the friend in question is a technophobe so nothing with LCD screens please, otherwise I'll get a two hour lecture on the evils of modern technololgy when I mention it to him.

    Or if he fancies a more traditional,self contained unit,Theoben eliminator gas ram,you can still get them built to special order,about 28 ftlbs in .22 and very very accurate indeed.

    Don't most the Daystate's have electronic triggers?

    May not appeal to the guy in question, him being a technophobe an all.
