This is the Fieldtester survey where we asked you to tell us about your kit back in 2020, and boy did you respond. 3,500 completed surveys came back to us, 10% of which are about PCPs, 10% of you told us about your airgun pellets, only 5% are about spring-loaded air rifles, which is why springers didn’t make it into our PCP survey.

So, when it comes to break-barrels, who are your favourites? This is the big prize: the Fieldsports Channel viewers’ most popular springer airgun – BSA has 16% of the market of Fieldsports Channel viewers with Weihrauch just ahead on 18%.
