Heh, the "electronic servo bullshit stuff", gives me the exact same FPS reading. Every time. All the time. No matter the temperature....Livonia said:The ARES is A copy of the Geneth WA2000, spring bolt action capable of APS2 parts as well. The Geneth has more of A place in my heart than the Asahi, due to no electronic servo bullshit and consistency.
Unless you live somewhere that the temperature stays the same, with little modification, the ARES/Geneth will out preform the Asahi any day.
Has anyone heard about the Asahi Blaser R93 before? Another rare gun with A much better wrap than their WA2000.
As for the Geneth, have you ever messed around one? I have. The wood on it is NO WHERE NEAR the quality of the Asahi's. There is a bar that runs foward of the reciever panel ruining the look. Another thing, when a spring that pushes past 500FPS/.20 the toggle on the rifle is almost impossible to pull back. Think of it as being like the SVD, only with an area to pull half the size than the SVD bolt handle.
The Blaser R93's are very nice, I wish I bought the last one I handled, but I didn't have the 2500$ at the time for it
...I'm sorry man, but don't compare two rifles when you have never even handled either.
As far as caring about the Ares one, I could care less about it. It will never have the value as a hand machined piece from a company that only made 125 of them in 1993. If ares ever finally comes out with theirs, it will be no different than other rifle out there.
One last thing, my age was brought up earlier, I would just like to state that I have never received outside funding for my rifles. I work and pay for everything I own.
