After reading Hector's review, I bought a couple of 430Ls and a 240 recently.
Each cost $150 ... couldn't resist the deals.

From top:  430L with Diana ZR-Mount and CenterPoint 3-12X44 PLT, Diana 240,  430L

Best group of the day:  Crosman Premier Hollow Points, 7.9gr, Forend rested on rolled-up pad.

Just bought one.  Probably the first or second airgun I've ever bought new, based completely on Hector's reviews.  $149+shipping from the dessert dealer, but still under $200 to my door.  Looking forward to a quality 11-12 ftlb underlever .177 spring rifle.  Merry Christmas to me!

Just mounted a SIG Romeo red dot on mine using a UTG clip on adaptor, but will be a few days until I can Sight in 🙁

Same here JiminPGH ... on the basis of Hector’s review of the OEM 430L, I decided to purchase one too.  

And, I wanted to experience a 12FPE air rifle as-well.

However, after I had Jacob of Airguns of Arizona measure the Length-of-Pull .... 13 1/2 inches ... I was more sold-on the 430L.

I’m a short man and my ideal LOP is 13 3/8 inches ... 13 1/2 is close enough.  LOL

So-much-so, I purchased a second 430L.

So-far, no regrets in having done-so ... playing only $149 per rifle was also a very strong incentive for a well-reviewed air gun.

Got home from work last night ... it was dark, no chance to do any shooting - I work 2nd-shift.

However, just as I was about to-go to-bed ... I was drawn to the utility room where my 430L is presently stored.

For no-other-reason, than to hold and look-at my 430L - I really like this air rifle.

I’m feeling like a kid with a new BB-gun.

a good looking, german underlever with good reviews / accuracy  for $149 is a slam dunk purchase .

It is really an excellent deal. A great platform for a fun plinker, or even a WFTF rig.

 Hector does show what you can expect from this rifle in in reviews. An accurate semi lightweight (compared to the other Rifles in it's category) and a fun to shoot gun. 

The cocking is the only issue for most people, if you plan on shooting a hundred or more shots a week you might get a little sore. 

Trigger is good, can be made comparable/ equal to a TX or HW trigger with 30 mins to an hour of time.

If you have the cash, and are in the fence you'd be silly to pass this up.

Quick question, does the 430l have any droop. Thanks, Don
