I just bought a brand new SMK B2 from Nicks for £40, open sights fitted as standard .177 cal. Trigger was very heavy and power around 7 lb but that's plenty for shooting out to 30 yards. Ive done a lot of work on it, re crown, O ring piston head, transfer port reduction, breech seal conversion and a bloody good clean and relube. Puts out about 9lb now but unless you enjoy fettling and turd polishing, i would recommend keeping a eye out for something second hand. You should be able to get something very useable for under £100.

The but pad and diopter sights were extra
