Victor is two models, co2 and pcp. We'll get both as samples. Should be fun!

I remember reading a thread a few months ago on the GTA about the listone pistol and it was not favourable . Issue with the breech . Here it is . https://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/in ... c=138114.0

If I remember correctly , it was all sorted out .

Thanks, will be interesting to read. I see it is the Lap 1, not the pistols we are ordering, but still relevant I'm sure.
Thanks!
Wes

Informative and a little discouraging on their quality of customer service. Hopefully things have improved.
Thanks,
Wes

Hi Guys, I'm planning to bring in a few of these, or more than a few depending on interest. The Taichi Pistol and rifle will run somewhere around $400-$460 and the Victor somewhere around $250-$300
Pretty cool looking! A bit pricey, so that is the question, whether they are sellable or not. The Taichi and Taichi-x are regulated, and so bringing in a sample to see what the build quality is like, the consistency of the regulator, accuracy etc., will be important.
Supposed to be high quality product with great barrels.
The Taichi and Taichi-x are quite similar in build to the PP700SA, but are made in Taiwan. The power output is customizable for the country they are sold in, and it looks like barrels/calibers are easily swappable and available, so a .25 caliber should be in the cards.
I'll look at getting the rifle in both PAL and <500fps versions.
Just a teaser of upcoming possibilities =)

Hi! What were you referencing in the quote? Just a note, they sadly don't have 25 caliber taichi barrels.

Good news! Looking like we should have the frts soon and be able to order! If you want to get in on the initial test order let me know.
Thanks,
Wes

Frts are finished, a preliminary order is made, but not paid yet as I'm waiting for an invoice.
Raman is getting some samples as well and we've got a few of the Nomad II type compressors coming as well to test out.

Looking forward to getting these!

Cheers,
Wes

Thanks for the update Wes! Still interested in a .22 Taichi rifle if they come in non-PAL version :)

They'll all be non-pal, and we may not get them in PAL version, as the action appears to be the same on all the Taichi guns. From conversation with the firearms officer means they all need to be classified as if they are exempt pistols. Anything over 500fps would mean a restricted classification according to him, since guys could just swap the barrel and pressure chamber and put on a pistol stock. Seems a bit of overkill on caution to me, but I guess that is their way of preventing easy changeover to a restricted weapon.

One more case of them thinking us legal gun owners are the criminals. :roll:

Interesting! Staying tuned here...

With the cheek piece so close to the butt plate, yes - no place to crawl your chin up the comb on that gun. Automatic placement if your head is going to not be floating.
