The LGU has the lightest recoil so far. I know that it is only 1 ingredient of many..
But focussing on recoil, I have been told that guns with a sliding rail system are not classified with other springers but have to compete against pcp's.
Lots of questions come to mind but my first is..
Do spring piston guns with a sliding rail system have to compete against Pcp's?
I assume that springers have their own category in competi

Want to stick with spring, want to reduce recoil, want to compete...where do I stand within FT rules.
AA TX200SR is the one on 'rails' so to speak and in HFT it is an open class rifle.
