I’ve currently got one on route, and should arrive next week. I’m curious what people’s questions might be that I can answer in my upcoming review.

Looking forward to your review. One thing of interest is what makes this PCP stand out compared to the myriad other PCP now available? Seems the market is now flooded with similar PCP rifles. :drinkers:

It’s here, only shot a few mags offhand. No bench yet.

Wow, that's a fine looking piece of kit. I wasn't expecting that - lets see how it shoots.

I’ve only put about 6 offhand mags through it so far, rain and wind has been heavy. I made this little unboxing video to show what it comes with and a quick look on video.

Low power is backyard friendly if you’ve got understanding neighbours. Slightly louder than the Diana Stormrider 495fps rifle, and on high power there’s no shooting anywhere other than the range or out on crown land. She’s LOUD on high power.

Other first impressions, bloody heavy with the walnut and the element helix (which is a tank as well), but the stock is gorgeous, and the side lever action is super smooth.

I can’t wait to get this on the bench!

Looking at the video... I wonder if it would be quieter without the muzzle brake? Since they naturally make things louder.

I’ve tried with both, by ear I can’t tell a difference.

I’ll pull up the app next time I have it on the bench and see it’s comparison.

I think so, on its lowest power setting it’s still stacking them pretty close together. I’m sure on high power at the range they will tighten right up. I’m very impressed with this gun so far, just the power adjuster could have been designed a little better.

Absolutely I’ll be testing and reporting on a ton of pellets.
