Looks like they'll be shipping next week. I still haven't gotten a shipping quote so quite the wait. My apologies.
Regards,
Wes

Supposed to be shipping today!
Will update as I find out anything. I'm pretty much sold out of this sample order. If you were in contact with me or were hoping to be in on the initial order, please confirm or let me know by my email wesleyb@airgunarcheryfun.ca.
I may have a couple left, depending on if I missed anyone or if anyone is backing out. I ordered two compressors as well and Raman from CSS has made a sample order as well so you can also check with him what he has that isn't spoke for..
Thanks,
Wes

Looking like around $480 for the rifle, $460 for the pistol, $385 for the PCP Victor, $345 for the CO2 Victor. These prices aren't including tax or shipping. Depending on what duty is charged this may go up or down a little but should be pretty close.
Thanks,
Wes

Unfortunately most of the rifles/pistols got stuck in customs. A few got through. Hoping they'll be released soon! I haven't seen any yet. Only the compressors.

Here's some pics of the Taichi, Taichi X and the Victor. I managed to get the pistol up to 480fps or so after a bunch of monkeying around. The Rifle did not respond as well to the same treatment only giving me less than 350fps after I modified it. Obviously there is some internal differences between the two. I'll get it worked out yet =).
My apologies that some are the wrong way around. ImageImageImageImageImageImage

The Victor looks very interesting, would be nice if someone can review this, specially the trigger pull, adjustability of the sights and each shot drop.

Good idea. I was able to bring the velocity up to 495fps. I will do a review.
Thanks,
Wes

Sorry for not getting this review done properly. Today I tuned my last pcp Victor and after quite a bit of fiddling was able to get a nice 31 shot string in the 475 to 500 fps range. This is pretty impressive for such a tiny little reservoir in the hand grip.
The manual says it's a 200 bar fill, but it actually is useless to go above 2000psi if you want consistency. From 2000psi to 1000 it shoots very well.
Unfortunately I never had time to do any accuracy tests, but I like the feel of it in my hand and if I was looking for a target pistol, this one would be on my list for sure. The trigger is nice and light and fully adjustable, with detailed instructions in the manual how to make adjustments.
The gun does not cock from the bolt handle. It has two finger knobs, one on each side that you push forward to cock. The bolt handle is actually sprung back as you lift it and you compress the spring when you close the bolt. Different for sure.
These guns are easily interchanged from co2 to pcp. Just switch canisters. (if you were able to get your hands on one).
Nice and light as well with the option of putting sliding weights on the barrel to balance it. (weights not included unfortunately).
This gun is perfect for a hand pump! A few pumps and you're back at 2000psi, hardly any effort at all. 30+ shots, is almost as good as a co2 cartridge and once you buy the hand pump is free with very little exertion =).
I tuned the co2 as well, and set it around 450fps. I could have tried to up it a bit more but I thought this would make for a nice long shot count per cartridge and an appropriate power for indoor shooting.
I didn't have the time to do a full shot count unfortunately so that will have to wait for next time.
Thanks,
Wes
(to the moderator, if this should be in the review section, feel free to move it if that's more appropriate. I can move the pics there as well)

Hi Guys! Raman and I have some more Victor pistols coming and they will have a wood look alike grip this time. I was also able to confirm that the Air Arms Alfa are the same gun, and were also made by Listone, except that they made their grips in the UK out of real wood. Otherwise the same pistol, which is way cheaper from us =).
Here's some pics of how the new order pistols will look like. (the fill port on the bottom pops off after filling and a black cover goes over that area) ImageImageImageImage
