I got a pcp many years ago as far as I can remember changing from one too the other never even occurred to me, the only thing you will probably notice is it being a bit front heavy

I went from spring to gas ram then changed to a Logun Axor and never looked back I can also shoot all 8 shots in around 6 seconds and have done a few time's when out ratting

No problem! No spring recoil on a pcp, my super ten is smooth and so accurate! Hardly use my HW 77 springer now!

If youve learnt to shoot a springer, youve become accurate. Start using a pcp and you become deadly. 

Keep using the springer tho, eventually you'll enjoy it more.

Springer to pcp is a very easy step, unless you've shot a Springer the other way isint so easy but far from difficult. 

They are excellent tools and boringly accurate, even the cheaper ones.

I started with an old diana  when i was about 15 .

Then .a long time later after a long hiatus .i got a crosman 2250 .and havent been without an airgun since (that was about 25 years ago ) so really (ignoring the diana)  i went from co2 to bsa ultra pcp . Then the third gun was  ...... hummm ...errrr.. its blurry. Either a bsa xl lightening in .177 or a crosman 1377 pump up . Anyway a springer came after pcp but to be honest there is no way i will ever be without a springer in my collection (currently have 3  ) have owned more than that at one time .

As said above there is a massive satisfaction  from  shooting a good springer. No matter how good fx make there pcps  .

Ps .    Its a crime to only own 1 airgun .

U need at LEAST  1 pcp   1 springer  1 pistol . Imo.

Got by the last 30 odd years on springer's and pump ups got my first pcp this year, I still shoot the springer's and pump ups but I see the advantage of the pcp and I'm very taken with it.

Ohh no never say shotty. 

The best thing about PCP is the accuracy and lack of noise. Did I say about the accuracy 😁
