Was wondering if anyone on the forum has any experience or insight on a Kral Puncher One? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.

A few guys on here have bought them. I've sold a few and so has Canadashootingsupply.ca. Nice and powerful! Maybe somebody will chime in on their experience.
Regards,
Wes

What is it power wise compared to a Airforce Condor .25 ? Is it comparable?

Ok, seeing it's a close clone of an Airforce Condor, what can be done to it? As in putting on a high flow valve, different bottles for more air capacity, a stock like a MadDog for a Condor. This is my first look at buying a PCP air gun, my other choice was a Kral Puncher Mega. They are both in the same price bracket, but I like the aftermarket products for a Condor. I also like the power and ability to make it what you what. Sorry for the long winded, and constant questions but I research everything to death before I commit to spending money.

Steve ,
I don’t have first hand experience with either of the guns that you have mentioned . I do have experience dealing with both Wes (airgunarcheryfun ) and Raman ( canadashootingsupply)and can vouch for excellent service .

You probably know this but the more power you make the more air it takes ( obviously) so depending on what you plan on shooting should make a bit of a difference . I prefer magazine fed over single shot , having easily adjustable power is pretty much a necessity. I hunt primarily with my rifles and have come to the conclusion recently that 50FPE at the muzzle is enough to take any small game I hunt.

I would go for the Kral puncher over the One for the reasons I’ve listed . And in .25 cal

I've heard of instances of Kral Puncher Mega's with issues of cocking handles breaking if you get to aggressive. Now I have no issue with a single shot, I generally bow hunt and use an inline muzzleloader to hunt with. I subscribe to the idea your first shot will always be your best shot. This gun will mostly be a range piece, but people will always want ultimate performance. Don't get me wrong, in no way am I discrediting anyone's ideas or the products that they own. I have a Stoeger X20 in a .177 calibre that I've let people shoot and they can't believe the power and accuracy I get from it. I know alot of people say it's junk, let people use it that called it junk and they were amazed at how it works. If you shooting priced pellets, to me, it has sub standard accuracy. You put cheap Beeman competition pellets through it and it'll parkbpellet on top of pellet. I'm basically like everyone else, wanting a good performing piece with out a staggering cost but I will spend money to get what I want. Personally I like the look of the Puncher One over the Airforce Condor anyway.

Now that's what I was hoping to hear. I would also try to put a MadDog Raptor style stock on it, even if it took modifying the stock to fit.

Good to know they are interchangeable

That was my thought too. I sat looking at both Condor and puncher one in a loop repeated on my computer, saying to myself that they looked the same for parts. So then, how much of the Condor aftermarket parts will fit the Kral? If you could change barrels, that would be a nice option. This post has basically made my decision for me.

Lauchlin What vendor did you get your parts from on ebay? Was it ebay.com or ,ca? I have a Puncher One and it's shooting great but Bob [CBS Shooter] is having a heck of a time with his.
