Just curious if anyone in Canada has ever owned one? I am a fan of big bore airguns and even curious what high powered restricted pcps are available.

Fx verminator mk2 extreme in .22 or arrow bolts
Airforce texan .457
Evanix rainstorm .357
Hw45 in .22 and .177
Kriss vector gen 1 .45 acp
Norinco m305 7.62 x 51
Marlin 1895 45 70

I have not seen ANY restricted PCP's for sale in Canada.

.75cal. (close to 20 mm, isn't it?) is pretty big for air power. A .75 calibre round ball of pure lead weighs 636gr. Even light weight, 1oz. hollow-based Foster Slugs weigh at 437.5gr. or 7/8oz. the lightest I've seen, is 382gr. This is why round balls, properly loaded, are better for big game than most commercial slugs for hunting.

.50 is as large as I've seen in air rifles - custom guns and the Sam Yang.

Best Wishes
