Hey all.  

I’ve seen several articles announcing the new SIG Break Barrel air rifles.  I haven’t seen any actual tests though. 

I’d like to hear what you all think of this rifle.  Are they more accurate than the other great break barrel rifles?  Has anyone shot and compares them yet?

What’s your thoughts?

What you need friend, is an HW90.

Anything less falls short, anything more is overpowered.

/s

 

This has come up in 2 recent threads, so I went and watched some reviews.

Meh...

It's really hard to argue against made in USA.

Hector didn't trash it, and we know he's not shy.

The moderator doesn't look like a crayon drawing, and appears to work in videos.

Stock finish looked uniformly nice across all videos.

This video is... well most of the reviews are sponsored, take that how you will.

The SD between shots is enviable.

According to one of the most knowledgeable AG gurus(Hector Medina) it’s the second best shooting gun next to the Diana 54/56

I considered the SigSauer BUT I got a walnut curely beautiful stock AND a T o 6 perfect trigger in the Diana 340. The 350 has more power. The 340 is 17 ft/lbs and a delight to shoot. A great trigger and shot cycle.

How's the cocking effort? Is it a .22?

Same cocking effort of Diana 34. I have both brand new. The 340 is my preference. Both are sweet. Like shooting a 17 ft/lb HW30/R7.

Why does it need to be stored muzzle down?

Oil collects by gravity to where is provides most benefit.

Thanks all.  I’ll definitely check out the info you all recommended.  
I currently have a Diana 34 Classic Pro that had a mainspring blow at about 1,000 shots.  Since I don’t hunt and won’t be, I decided to replace it with a reduced power Vortek kit.  Lessened the cocking effort and I couldn’t tell any ill effects.  

I am tossing around the idea of trading my rifle, or selling it, and jumping into PCP OR forget the PCP and all the paraphernalia that you have to have and just get a really nice break barrel or under lever air rifle.  
I really like shooting at targets and seeing how accurate I can be.  I love it when I can get a clover with my Diana 34 and the right ammo at 20 meters.  
I want a rifle I can do that with out to maybe 75 yards or so.  It doesn’t have to be a cloverleaf, but I’d prefer a really accurate rifle and unfortunately that usually means LOTS OF MONEY!!

thanks again.

If you have a gas rammed rifle, the ram has a bit of silicone inside the ram to keep the seals lubed. Most guns using one have the ram body at the rear of the chamber, so storing it muzzle down keeps that silicone around the seals when not being shot.

It's probably a good gun but it's ugly.
