Hello all, I am a custom PCP builder located in Hawaii, I have some pieces in inventory I would like to move and a friend told me to try this forum. Please see my recent post in the 'for sale' forum.

Happy shooting and be safe!

Hi - welcome to the CAF!

FYI:

Your 2nd pistol with the stock is rated at over 500 fps making it an R-Pal item which would require a Firearms license here in Canada...

BTW - how do we know that your items are safe to use?
What qualifications do you have and what are your safety factors?

:?

Thank you for welcoming me to the CAF.
Apparently you are not reading my post carefully enough,

' the prices include postal shipment and DE-TUNING FOR THE CANADIAN MARKET.'

Re; safety factors,
(a) The reservoirs are rated per the standard Barlows' formula for the wall thickness employed, which yields a calculated safety factor of at least 300%
(b) The manuals supplied with the guns clearly state that the maximum allowable 'safe' fill pressure is 3000 psi., and should never be exceeded.
(c) I have built and sold 14 hi-pressure PCP airguns since 2015 and they are all working properly/belong to well-satisfied customers

Re; qualifications, I have 40 years practical experience as a Designer/Machinist, and the offerings are exhaustively tested before being put up for sale. ( a minimum of 100 rounds/indoor and outdoor field testing, multiple reservoir fills, comparative chronograph trials with various load weights/target distances/conditions/temperatures/pressures.

Welcome to the forum, very interesting work!

Do they use conventional valves or is there more innovation beyond the unconventional configuration?

How do you sight the off-center configured pistol and does it feel different to shoot?

Thank you for your interest.

Valving is somewhat similar to the FX- Condor, and utilizes a stainless steel hollow stem valve in-line with the boire/between the reservoir and the breech, with a sliding hammer in the barrel shroud working against a top-hat when fired.

The side-by-side pistol is very nicely balanced, ( although a bit heavy ) and is designed to accept a laser-sight, attaching to the weaver rail mounted below the barrel.
