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.
