Hey guys just wanted some info on a gun I haven't seen mentioned on the forum before. My father just gave this to me as an early wedding present and it has a stated 1000 fps muzzle velocity in the .177 model. As we all know the velocity likely isn't that high for a side leaver spring piston but I can't find chrome data for it anywhere! Thanks very much!

Ps. I have my R-pal and am aware that 500+ is PAL rated :)

I have one. iirc it was under 800 depending on pellet. It never got a chance to break in though. I swapped a weaker spring (left piston alone) and the thing shoots so softly and quietly you wouldn't believe it. Noise level was like a cough and recoil was nothing as its a heavy gun.

Sigh, I really have to get another chronograph :(

Still have it around somewhere but the spring swap took it under 500fps so I kind of lost track of it. I remember the spring that came out was one HELL of a long spring.

It is a copy of something else, but maybe someone more knowledgeable than me could chime in as I forget what it is a copy of.

The Browning Leverage ans Xisico XS46U are the same rifles, and they're under lever, not side lever cocking.
