Smoothest springer

I'm going to say airarms prosport out of the springers I've shot. I've owned weihrauchs, theoben slr (gas strut), bsas and a few more, I recently acquired a pro sport and while there's obviously still recoil, it's super smooth with a lovely trigger, it was absolutely mint and I'm assuming someone has done a bit of tuning as I've owned a tuned hw97 and a tx200, but it's even smoother and a beautiful trigger to.

If I were to buy the smoothest springer / gas ram sub 12 what would it be? Is there a recoiless hunting rifle (not pcn)? 

@oowee If you want a smooth springer buy a professionally tuned HW in the flavour you like, end of discussion really!

I own an HW80 that is tuned to perfection and great for 40m vermin control but heavy, I also use an out of the box light as a feather HW30 that is so smooth and quiet it is a joy to use but at 7.5fpe it is a 20m maximum head shot vermin gun at best.

So really it is down to the ranges you are shooting, the¬†HW30 works well if all you need is to shoot squirrels from the base of a treeūüĎć

I've just picked up a 20 year old mk1 bsa lightening  .it's in excellent  external condition , and looks to have been worked on internally . It's running at around 9.5 fpe with jsb rs .177  .and is so smooth to cock and shoot its amazing .I thought it may have been a gas ram conversion at first but no,  I found the spring OK.  Accuracy is excellent out to 35 yds  with most pellets tried ,  it doesn't seem overly fussy but definitely  preferes the lighter offerings . It just goes to confirm my statement above that if you find an older well run in gun that's in harmony it will be a joy to shoot  .

I used to have a hw 30 that gun was easily the most accurate springer I've ever shot .but only to 30 yds or so when the power dropped off a bit too much .

Is that the one that’s a junior rifle and runs about 6 ft / lb?
