Does anyone else feel that Airforce gets the prize for the most stretched platform? You can almost predict that every year they just come out with a variation or add on to their basic platform. Hatsan on the other hand spits out numerous models every year.

Maybe they are just marketing genius and know how to stretch it.

Thoughts?

Yes - I AGREE wholeheartedly, lauchlin - a repeating .22 or .25 Condor would be special.

As for a repeating Texan, the single loading system is just fine, imho.

A repeater is especially handy for shooting gophers- around here, if used for snowshoe hares, as well.

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

Even if it a little strip clip like a Daisy 953, or 760. Something you can index.

The pellet clips for the Brocock need indexing per shot. I bought one, received 2, but haven't tried it yet.
Having too much fun with the Gauntlet and PP700 on regular nights. Besides, the Brocock makes a bit too
much noise for none-ear muff shooting.
That type would be OK and much better than the current. As well, incorporating the side lever Texan-type mount,
in a retrofit would also be nice, but not likely possible.

Suppressors are like engines, there's no substitute for cubic capacity ;)

Whoever comes out with an in-line valved repeater will be a wealthy man/woman. No one can argue with the power that is achievable with the Airforce design . The problem with it is the follow up shot . If a multi shot break barrel is possible , so is The Airforce platform .

Especially with the side lever system of the Texan.

Then, semi-auto - up to .25 at least, for gophers.

Bob Craske shared some musings on the subject and claimed to have gotten it to work back in 2003:

Cool graphics though.
Wouldn't that be a blast!
51gr. bullets at 900fps semi or full auto- or 26gr. Predators.
Meed a magazine long enough for descent bullet and pellets.
'Course, would have to buy them already cast. :D
