Been looking at getting one in .25cal. Anybody have one in any caliber? What are your thoughts, likes and dislikes? It's a very nice looking air rifle. Weren't the old RWS mod 94's Cometa's??

I have one in .25, not exactly the 400 but one of the more modern fancy derivatives. It is beautiful with a blond-ish stock. I think it is a Fusion Star or something. I have not really given it a chance to shine but it was clearly going to be a challenge to shoot really well. We can say I "haven't found the right pellet" but it migrated to the back of storage and has not gotten it's share of daylight,

I cannot find the archived photo thanks to the magic of Photobucket. I should just get the sucker out and shoot a new one but my family is pressuring me to do non-AG stuff at the moment.

The RWS-94 was indeed the Cometa 400, and I have one of those too in .22, and it is one of my favorite springers. I used to have two, but sold the uglier one. They both shot really well and had excellent handling characteristics. This was a fad gun that stood the test of time, IMO.

I have a couple of other Cometa models including the Indian pistol. I tend to be a Cometa fan.

I have 2 in .22 and  they very accurate but a bit pellet picky. one has been tuned and is very smooth with a good trigger.

the other is a new one that's not broke in but is accurate none the less, its a Fusion Star Premier just a fancy 400.

I had an RWS 94 in 22 that was great.  I thought a 25 would be too.  Didn’t match up with the 94..
