By william from USA on 2008-08-06 11:39:08Things I liked:A big number 1 is how accurate the dragonslayer is! Power,after the first check on power i got a high of 714fps with a 176 grain hornady roundball, that's 199.2 ftpe. also got 209ftpe at around 646fps with a 225 grain round nose pellet. The testing was on a sunny day but i will later recheck the numbers indoors with lights. I will add there was a 30.06 powder burner next to me at the range and he tested his 150 grain 30.06 at 2814fps with my new red chorny which sounds right plus my ar6 pistol was also shooting numbers that sound close too. Anyway the dragonslayer is one fun to shoot airgun! That guy with the 30.06 was pretty much all over his target when right after i turned my elevation adjustment one full turn after it shot way low with the scope newly mounted, then bullseye after that big of a adjustment! 2nd shot through the same hole, 3rd shot same hole! This was at the 25 yard range we both started at, the other guy was also sighting in a new scope too. Then at 50 yards i tried the mil dots on my new 4-16x50 leapers scope. It took about 1&1/2 dots with a 176 grain roundball to hit the 10 ring and about 2 dots with a 200 grain round nose conical.
Things I would have changed:The barrel is 20.6 inches, maybe a longer barrel. I found a couple of guys that did just that, one to 24 inches and the other to 30 inches. The 30 inch would add about 150fps with that mod only not to mention it would be a all out tackdriver! But the shorter carbine style barrel has its advantages too, alot of places i like to hunt a shorter bush gun is nice.
What others should know:It shoots 5 good times on a charge with the lighter pellets. Lets see its also a little heavy with a good size scope on it. Its also a lot of fun to target shoot and even if your just a half decent shot this gun will make you look good. Plus its a real nice looking rifle in person that looks like a rifle instead of a shotgun like the 909s sam yang.

By joe from USA on 2009-08-02 08:49:19Things I liked:This rifle is well balanced, easy to cock and load, handsome, smooth trigger (adjustable) and did I say ACCURATE. I fired twenty five round groups @ 20 yards (half with .490 round ball and half with PA 250 gr RN pellets and boy did it like them both! My groups were super tight two of the groups were hole in hole, and four were almost H in H, a few "clover leaf" groups and the rest were respectable 1/2" to 3/4" Now don't be disappointed if you can't group this rifle as good as I did, I learned to shoot in a swamp in Hell called Paris Island.
Things I would have changed:I would desire a longer barrel to maximize this rifles potential by utilizing all of the air pressure, but as a hunting carbine, it is the perfect length and it does what it was meant to do, put high energy accurately on medium to large game. The stock is finished in a cheap looking plastic sealer, but it is not too bad. I sanded mine down to the bone and stained and hand rubbed 7 coats of tung oil for personal satisfaction. I don't know why so many of these airgun manufactures make gold triggers...black or silver, but not gold
What others should know:Buy one, you won't be disappointed! Out of my 5 pcp's this one ranks neck in neck as my favorite alongside my condor.
