That's great they are going to offer a non pal version! It wouldn't have changed anything about the present version though. Airgunsource and others tested the gun after they finally got some and they were shooting too fast.
The argument started I believe over some blanket statements made about guns being over 500fps automatically being pal rated, but it ended up this gun velocity is enough over to make it over 5.7 joules. This is coming from different dealers than the one that got it classified as PAL rated.
This version ended up being rated correctly in the end, that's what ultimately matters. If it was a wrong rating, then we'd have reason to go to umarex and get the tests to give to the firearms program to get things changed. It seems like by the letter leadslinger got they would have changed the rating if there was a sample velocity test done by umarex showing the energy was below 5.7 joules

I think it all started because the reviews from early on had lower power and would have been non-pal. I have to assume they must have been pre-production units to have such a power difference.
At least a non-pal version will be coming at some point for those that want it.

Yeah that's great, and I think you're right about the start of it.

Thanks for the info Wes.

Since the pre-production version of the Cowboy Lever Action shot @ around 450 fps, I suspect it did not require that much work for Umarex to come out with a non-PAL version.

Hopefully it will have more production than the <500 Walther Lever Action, which I understand was very limited production.

Anyone know when it will be available? Also anyone know when the European Antique version will be coming to North America?
