I dunno about hiring gun! But H.THomas and Sons in Wattala, Rifle Point (Naizer Hameed) In Narahenpita, near AIS and . DOn WIllies(small collection) opposite to Majestic Sells all these .77 caliber and <. THora small club ground(Mt.Lavania) used to be the practice range for Magnum rifle shooting club! YOu can join it and practice there, although I don't know its still happening today :) or join a club :

i have been to rifle point on several occasions and met Mr.Hameed , yes he is not going around the bush and you have to talk to the point.
I got the following models from him
Diana Magnum 350
Diana LP8
PCP Weihrauch HW100S
the goods at his place is perfect and you will not be able to get good German stuff from anywhere else.
I have been to Thomas - here is my summery
I have been to Thomas and Sons , suckers. Thomas boasts about guns but has not seen a side lever cocking system in his life. Fucker behaves like he is the best gunsmith in Sri Lanka. Sucker doesn't even know how to respect a gun , handling a gun is a discipline. Fucking businessmen no passion at all. Really disappointed.
and also Charged my PCP O2 barrel , charged LKR 400. I have done it in slave island, church street LKR 200. I don't scream for Rs 200, but human quality wise we are way ahead of these mother fuckers. Business is Business its not charity. But first you should get to know about the product and the market better than the customer and it will lead your business to an edge. Not the age of your grandfathers balls.
what is Nimrods ??? i have been there too selling crap you can fool people who don't know about guns.
if anybody wants a good gun ( i am emphasizing the word "GOOD" talk/meet Shafraz, who is now managing Rifle Point will assist you. He can be reached on 0714513889.

anyone who goes to rifle point gegs harsh treatment . first by stray dogs around the place . then the man comes out and talks business on the road . following are the conditions he put forward.
1. u have to pay 5000Rs in advance to show the weapons
2. you have to select a weapon then and you have to agree to his price and buy it straight away no time is for thinking and decision making.
the person is rude in his way of talking too. I thought it is better not to talk to a person like him and came back and bought an air gun from nimrods which is in front of milagiriya church. He is demonstrated the weapons for me before i made my decision even .His staff is also very friendly

first of all i had 4 guns with me, but only one now.
i had 2 hatsans one from Arjuna and other from a rude basted called Thomas and Sons (Hatsan Model 135) .
i can elaborate on the previous, if needed.
coming from family that owned guns for very long time. i know how valuable is customer support.
3 rd and 4th from Rifle Point. Diana Mod 48 and Air Arms S410 and I am quite happy with both purchases.
I never knew Shafraz, who is now managing Rifle Point before but now i will only get my guns from them i do not know what you refer here, for my experience is nothing but admirable. i would advice you to speak to Shafraz (0714513889) and he will assist you. i spend about 4-5 hours for me to select a gun and he never complained or took money as you guys say.

JOE

@ Psrupasinghe - You are very correct and I do approve of what you say. now I know that I am not the only one who had to under go that harassment. "Rifle point" is a place that you don't want to go. I did go and had to under go the same harassment you under went. even the dogs on the road bark and say "not to go there". That old man abuses hes costumers. but his worker is the opposite he is a very nice chap who feels sorry for the abused customers and says sorry on behalf of his cruel master. Nimrods they are a the best they are not after money as rifl point is. I went to the police station to lodge a complAINT but I thought to my self some day that rifle point will go bancrupt.

I too agree with above comments… Riffle Point in narahenpita (owner is one low level called him self HAMEED) is the worst place for air guns accessories in Colombo… As well as guns he has either too old and rusty inside or half broken… My god he thinks he's it… And I don't know why police doesn't arrest him for selling illegal items he sells without license such as stun guns… (Which my friend once went there to buy an air gun and he has shown some illegal stun guns there for sale). Any way he's only after money & no after sales at all…! He switch his mobile off when u need after sales services… :-) :-) Nimrods and there's a place in Kadawatha too. Those places are customer friendly and equipped with good stuff too…

Bar You do not need a licence for a air rifle. I do agree with psrupasinghe and JOE, that Rifle Point is not a good place to go to. that Hamid man is a awful person he is a scroundger. and if you dont agree with his terms he threatens his coustomers. do not buy a air rifle from Rifle Point. If you have to go there do not go there alone go with a gang or a group. Nimrods and W Thomas and sons are a good place to go and buy a air gun and pelets.

Don't go to Rifle Point they are a bunch of crooks they sell damaged stuff for big price and very abusive ……… go to Nimrods at Bambalapitiya or W. Thomas & Sons Kadawatha if you ask "Why because Nimrods and W. Thomas & Sons have a good technical team and spairs.

I have purchased Air rifles/ Pistols from all three places. Hameed @ Rifle point is a strange creature. But if you tackle him properly, you can get a very good deal. Whereas Thomas from Thomas & Sons @ Kadawatha is better. But his equipments & pellets are way too expensive. Then, Mr. Karu from Nimrods @ Milagiriya is extremely friendly & helpful. Some of their rifle/ pistol / pellet etc… prices are cheap. (When you consider the retail price + freight cost to Sri Lanka, the prices available @ Nimrods are cheaper for lot of stuff) Therefore, Go to Nimrods (I buy pellets & accessories only from them). They have the best price & the best customer care (Unless of course you can tackle Hameed @ Rifle point :-)

Hi guys! I'm Sushan I think W.Thomas & Sons gun care center in Kadawatha. is the best place to purchase an air rifle because they give two years warranty for all their rifles and there are so many models for us to select. and also we can shoot and test the guns. there web site is wthomasandsons.com and i have their contact numbers if you need any. 0114968626/ 0112972608 / 0727319250. once i went all over the country to buy an air rifle but i was not satisfied with those gun sellers. the only place where i got satisfied was WThomas and sons. now it's 4years to my gun and their after sales service is very good.

Nimrods is also a good place but i don't know i felt thomas and sons in Kadawatha is better. there are so many things to see

@ Sushan, Thomas & Sons have a great workshop. But the "so many models" you mention are cheap Chinese air guns. They are only good for fun shooting. If you have any concern for accurate shooting or competition shooting, those guns are useless. On the service front - Nimrods are the oldest gunsmiths in Sri Lanka. They are the best for servicing & repairing of both Air weapons as well as Fire weapons.
BTW - Rifle point has the best selection of Air guns including the ones used for competition. Not Thomas & Sons.
If you are wondering, how do I know all these… Well it's b'cos I have the following Air rifles/ Pistols with me which I have bought from all 3 vendors;
Gamo AF 10 (Spain)- Nimrods
SAG B3-2 (China)- Thomas & Sons
Diana Panther 31 (Germany)- Rifle Point
Diana LP8 (Germany) - Rifle Point
Air Arms S410 (England) - Rifle Point

Cheers

@ VF - as an avid shooter who loves the sport, I would never ever encourage nor help anyone to kill animals unless it's for self defense. (I shoot air weapons as well as fire weapons & participate in competitions). A monkey won't normally die straight away from air weapon shot (unless otherwise you are an excellent shooter who knows where to place the shot with an appropriate weapon) the animal would die after suffering a lot!!! Even the professional hunters looks down those sort of shootings.

Hi, Nimrods is the best place to buy your air rifle as they have the best sails service, customer care and not to forget there golden after sails service that I can be sure 100%.
W Thomas and sons were bad in the past but now they have developed to be nice and polite to customers.
Rifle point was the worst place I went as they take advantage of the monopoly air rifle market and abuse the customer and put the customer in an awful state. they think they are the only Air Rifle sellers in the world. I did see him many times at Nimrods and he too gives his rifles to Nimrods to service so I guess Nimrods is the best at 1st place and W Thomas & sons would be 2nd. Hope my review helps. Happy Air gunning to all.

Agrees with Michael regarding Hameed of Rifle Point getting his rifles serviced/ repaired @ Nimrods. As I have mentioned earlier Nimrods have the best service.

Rakitha

Rizan - yes you do need a licence , from what i heard , there is also some security concern when buying a CO2 BB pistol (lots of robbers use them thesedays), so they will really look into the reason why you need a pistol , but if you want something like a 9mm or .40 you better get a licence application form and some training from a shooting club beforehand .

There is no restriction regarding power factor of Air guns in Sri Lanka. But some other countries have various regulations restricting Air guns (including import/ export). Ex- In India - you need a permit to own Air guns, in U.K - you need a permit or FAC for high powered air guns.

I totally disagree with you and condemn you for trying to shoot innocent monkeys. It is a crime in Sri Lanka and also in any country to shoot wild or native animals like them. On top of that, the poor animal will suffer for days or weeks and die slowly, and when he/she becomes weak, he will be attacked by the stronger members of the monkey clan too. We also have so many monkeys coming to our garden, but, we let them play around,eat fruits and let them be monkeys. They enjoy a lot in our garden, specially the small ones, and they are just liek human kids. NO ONE… I mean, no one I know shoots monkeys. It is a horrible thing to do. … don't even think about it. People like you bring a bad name to ALL Sri Lankans…!!

I am just beginner using air rifles, I had no clue about it but I was interest in getting one and learning the art of it. I went to rifle point and met Mr. Shafraz he had good knowledge about the rifles, I told him the fact that I'm beginner and would love learning. He showed a couple of rifles and took his valuable time to explain it in detail, the conversation lasted for almost one and half. He recommended me some rifles which will be suitable for beginners, I didn't have a second thought I bought my rifle.
I would recommend this place where you gain a good knowledge, practice and good rifle for reasonable price.
