These Rifles are non restricted firearms. You must have a Valid PAL and be at least 18 years old to purchase.

Hi Guys,
I've got a few of these in stock now in 22 and 25 Caliber and am starting to do a bit of testing on them.
Here is a string straight out of the box using H&N Barracuda Match 21.14gr. The first shot was with a Benjamin hollow point and going well over a 1000fps so I switched to something heavier.
M11 .22 caliber, 250 bar fill, 150bar reg setting.

1056 (14.3)
922 919 922 922 919 912 912 912 919 922 912 922 922 912 925 912 912 918 922 912 915 905 909 909 909 909 915 915 918 918 915 905 905 909 902 905 905
The gun is blasting a lot of air out the muzzle so my next string I'll turn down the hammer spring to see if I can get some better efficiency.
The 11 shot mag is great to load though having something to poke the pellets in all the way helps a lot.
She's got power that's for sure!
Nice looking gun!
The gun comes with a magazine and single shot tray.
The fill probe is interchangeable with the PP700SA.
The safety is on the trigger and I found it fairly easy to use.
I will follow up with a lower power setting and look at what trigger adjustment is possible.
You can purchase them here:

Hi Guys just did a string with the H&N 21.14 Barracuda at 3 turns in from least power and an average velocity of 832fps over 88 shots! As you can imagine, a lot less air is being wasted and the gun is MUCH Quieter! However, I think I need to adjust the power up just a bit more to get better consistency, at least until the reg breaks in, as the velocity is jumping up and down quite a bit.
Now I've spent my quota of money on pellets for the day, lol, and my tin is gone.
That's an average of 32.5 ft/lbs, which is quite a bit of punch!
The previous string average was up around 39ft/lbs but a lot less shots.
Imm interested in the 25 cal and whether the bigger pellet will give much more energy and efficiency =)

Yes! Monday I hope to have my 25 caliber pellet order, and will continue the testing. Once we get calmer weather I'll do some accuracy testing as well.
Thanks,
Wes

Here is a picture of the trigger adjustment. This is a two stage trigger and appears to only have one adjustment, for the lightness of the final stage. It is possible to get it so light that it won't even cock, so one had to be careful adjusting it.
I was able to make the trigger nice and light without danger of it going off. Image

Well, just did a string with the 25 caliber. The first gun to leave here was only shooting 800fps, but after I shipped it I finally had time to do a string and this next one was shooting almost 900fps out of the box with the jsb king. It was wasting a pile of air though and only got 30 shots. I turned the hammer spring back about 3 or 4 turns and was surprised to get even higher velocity with less air waste and quieter, so I'm sure a guy could get a lot more shots at that same power level.
I turned it down further to the 830's and got 60 shots with an average of 834fps before it started to drop on shot 61 and at 100 bar.
This leads me to think there is a transfer port adjuster in the gun somewhere, because both guns had the reg set around 150bar and the first one had the hammer spring turned in more but less power.
I'll have to do some exploring on the forums to see how these are adjusted at the port and regulator.
The velocity spread from highest to lowest was 35fps, so a bit of a spread, but I expect these will settle down with more shooting.
Overall I am so pleased! Sure feels powerful shooting!
At the 834 fps average that is an average of 39.2 ft/lbs, and at high power its shooting around 45 ft/lbs.
Regards,
Wes

Do you have to take these apart in order to adjust the power or is it a user adjustment? Do you expect to stock these for a few months, like into the fall when I might have some money :-) ?

There is a flat screwdriver slot in the back for adjustment of the hammer spring tension.
The reg is only adjustable when you remove the tube.
I have 20 in 25 caliber Coming in a couple weeks, and I'm sure we'll be getting more in 22 in the future.
Thanks,
Wes
