By CHARLES from USA on 2013-05-25 00:23:06Things I liked:I purchased one of these in .25 cal. last week. Let me count the ways I love her...the stock rivals the Daystate Wolverine, the grip is perfection, and the finish is beautiful. It weighs just over seven pounds and is perfectly balanced. The cocking lever is completely effortless. The magazines work great, but only hold the "short" pellets, which is ok with me. (You must seat pellets with a pen, but to me its like seating bullets the same way each time when you reload). I tried the Barracuda 31 grain pellets at the range, and they shot ok but not great. Then I shot some of my JSB 25.4 Exact Kings and WOW! This is everything I hoped for! At 25 yards one hole five shot groups period. At 50 yards .3" groups, and at 75 yards one inch or less depending on how steady I am. The accuracy of this rifle with the Exact Kings will just thrill you. The rifle will do it if you can. Several of the range officers just had to try it out too...ha. They all know me from shooting my Sumatra 2500,500cc in .25 cal. there all the time. Before you buy an FX Royale 500, or a Daystate Air Ranger in .25 cal., try one of these. The shot string is almost completely flat for the first 30 shots, at which point it begins to drop slowly to the 45th shot, and you have to refill the tank. I mean from the first shot to the thirtieth shot no change at all. First shot dead center, thirtieth shot dead center. Just unbelievable ACCURACY and CONSISTANCY!
Things I would have changed:I wouldn't change a thing. But if you are looking for super quiet don't buy it, cause it is pretty loud. Your neighbors will think your shooting a .22 rifle. I shoot at the range or out in the middle of nowhere so the bang don't bother me. Its nothing compared to the BANG of my Sumatra shooting 43 grain Eun Jins...Personally the one thing I wish it had are Tru-Glo fiber optic open sights. I like to shoot open sights, and will probably have Will Piatt at Saddle Mountain Gunsmith mount some for me when he gets done tuning my Sumatra to shoot 52 grain slugs. By the way, he can change the shroud on this rifle for you to one of his own with special baffles etc. if you want to quiet this one down, and Pyramyd will ship directly to him.
What others should know:Don't make a $2000.00 or $2700.00 dollar mistake by purchasing an FX or Daystate! Try this one first! The one thing to remember about the place in Arizona that sells those rifles is this: You buy it you own it. If you shoot one pellet they consider it used and will not refund or exchange it. And if you do your homework you will find that the only other .25 cal. air rifle on the planet that will give you a shot string as flat as this Windy City II in .25 cal. is the computerized Daystate Air Wolf MCT for $2700.00; but it does it at much less velocity = much less ft./lbs. energy, and you have to charge a damn battery? Trust me when I tell you this is the best Field Target rifle in this price range available period. Its accuracy and consistency will blow your mind. In case you don't already know it, trust me on one other thing, Pyramyd Air has the best return policy in the air gun business, and the nicest people you could ever hope to do business with. My special thanks goes out to Greg Wnek at Pyramyd who recommended the Windy City II for its incomparable accuracy. By the way, if you order one, ask for the Foster adapter to attach to your scuba tank fill hose, which attaches to foster like fill adapter that comes with the rifle. Stacy in the tech dept. will know what you mean...God bless her. Good Shooting!

By ronald from USA on 2014-02-13 20:31:30Things I liked:Now I have finally got a chance to test my 9mm windy city II, contrary to what the specs say out of the box these rifles soot 77.62 gr JSB's a high 864fps low 826fps and average of 832fps... now this is without any adjustments, I'm sure after a hammer spring tweak it should touch the 900fps range. great accuracy consistent, but a little loud for a $1400 rifle with a shrouded barrel
Things I would have changed:could spend a little time refining the baffles. smoother trigger, mid level rifle at best. this rifle has soo much potential just waiting to be released.
