Which Riffe gun would you guys get?
« on: February 04, 2010, 08:47:46 PM »
I'm looking at a couple different guns for the north coast. The Riffe metal tech 1s or the competitor 0s. I figure the extra length on the metal tech might be ok because it's mid handle. What do you guys think?

I had (but sold) a Riffe Comp 0S.
Great frikken gun, and spot on kill shots from 12' away.
I ended up building a custom mid-handle that worked better for my style,
but for an off-the-shelf-production-gun for the North Coast it can't be beat!
Couple hints:
-Only use 2 bands, instead of 3 that it comes with
-If you get the 9/32" threaded shaft, get a cheapo JBL tip instead of the giant Riffe tip that comes with the gun
(the heavy tip tends to fall off sooner near the end of a shot)
-Otherwise, the 9/32" Hawaiian flopper shaft is my go-to Nor-Cal killer, and flys like lightning
-Rich VanDusen (my friends call me "Dick")
