I doubt that you will be able to find a used R9 Goldfinger unless someone is getting divorced. Actually the fit and finish are pretty nice. My only dislike is that Beeman put a dark brown stain over a nice piece of wood. Buy what you can afford and make it work for you. The Goldfinger is not cheap at around $500, but the Gamo I bought is a piece of dog poop at $140.Woodog
I understand, I don't have my gamo anymore it was stolen if i did I could show a group. I need a new air rifle all i have is a Ben Sheridan and it makes so much noise when i pump it all the pigeons fly out of the barn. how much would a used beeman r9 be worth i know a guy that might sell one .The wood looks like it was dragged behind a truck.

I've picked up and handled a Sumatra and was surprised how lite it actually felt. I'm not as familiar with the Walther Dominator. The only thing that I've read nagative about rotory magazines is that some are not long enough to hold the longer pellets. The things that I like about the Discovery is the lower operating pressure, the simplicity of the design, and the potential to modify it. So what is your motivation to move up to .22cal? I have read all about the pros and cons of .177, .20, .22,and .25 calibers. I have found that for most of the critters that I am going after that I like the stopping power of the heavier calibers. I haven't found that the "flatter trajectory" of .177 to be that much of a difference over .22 at 50 yards or less. Personally I like the pure hitting power of .25 but there are only a handful of airguns that have enough cajones to blow out that much lead with any type of authority. I love the hitting power that my .25 Theoben Eliminator has. It litteraly has spun rabbits 180' when they were hit. In addition to the Discovery, I have been eye-balling a Condor that Air Hog advertises in .25cal. Like I said before.......it's hard to be happy with just one. I wonder if there is a 12 step program for ariguns?
Well my R-9 is in .20 cal so I'm looking to go up to .22 in a PCP. Right now I'm favoring the Walther 1250 Dominator, but I've also looked at the Air Force Condor and the Sumatra carbine.

Thanks for the reminder/advice. I cleaned the barrels on all my other airguns after reading a blog about it, for some reason it skipped my mind on this one. It will give me something to do next time I get board of working on the stock I'm making for my Walther Falcon Hunter.
You probably do this automatically, but just in case, give the barrel a good cleaning. Both of mine had quite a bit of gunk in them. I think you will have a lot of fun with the Disco. I got both of mine from MAC1 too, and they're tack drivers. The triggers aren't quite the same as my high end guns, but in the accuracy department, and for me that's where the rubber meets the road, they hold their own quite nicely against guns costing three and four times as much. Enjoy.
