    Things I liked:Quality, Accuracy, easy to fill with hand-pump. I really like it.
    Things I would have changed:The should include the side lever action instead of the bolt action.
    What others should know:Taking into consideration the fps reported by Pyramydair I was of the idea that the Falcon was really close to the Evanix Renegade in power. Then I made an interesting test that could be useful for other customers: Penetration in wood. I shoot two pellets (JSB Monsters 25.4 grain) with the Evanix AR6, Evanix Rainstorm, Evanix Renegade, Falcon Prairie and the Air Arms S410 on an 8cms thick pine piece of wood. All shots were at the same distance and on the same piece of wood. Please take into consideration that I used a vernier that was introduced by the hole made by the pellet, so the measure taken was to the back center of the pellet (not to the skirt) and not to the point of it. These are the results on the average penetration meassured with the vernier: Deeper average penetration AR6 2.4 cms, Rainstorm 2.3 cms, Renegade 2.2cms, Falcon 1.7 cms., and S410 1.3 cms. The best penetrations were: AR6 2.8 cms, Rainstorm 2.5 cms, Renegade 2.3 cms, Falcon 1.8, and S410 1.4 cms. If you take the average penetrations and make the S410 to be the 100%, then the Falcon has 29.68% more penetration power than the S410; the Renegade is 66.75% above the S410; the Rainstorm 77.74%; and the AR6 has 92.30 % more power of penetration than the S410. If anybody has a better way of getting more accurate results for killing power on an air-rifle I will appreciate his feedback

    Accuracy:5

    By James from USA on 2011-04-25 11:30:35

    Things I liked:I have the walnut stock that is not a thumbhole. This is the most beautiful rifle I have seen or owned. The walnut stock cannot be explained in words. Guns handles very well as has good power and great accuracy. Trigger can be adjusted to about anything you would want. This is a very high quality gun and one you are going to want to show off.
    Things I would have changed:The magazine is metal, which is good, but you cannot see when you are running out of pellets. The gun is a little louder than I would have hoped, but not too bad. Safety should be on the other side.
    What others should know:Unless you have free time to spend just sitting and looking at the gun, I would not buy it. You will not be able to resist.

      Things I liked:Quality, Accuracy, Power, beautiful and comfortable stock,easy to fill with hand pump, alloy pellet magazine . 30 powerful shots per fill without hitting down ay 40 yards. Yesterday I made my first huntig trip with my new Falcon. Among other animals, I killed two crows, one at 55 yards and the other one at 85. Big crows are very resistant and with the FalconCal. 22 they were stone dead at first shot. I wanted the accuracy, quality and quiet of the Air Arms S410 and the power of the Evanix Renegade. That's exacly what I got with the Falcon Prarie.
      Things I would have changed:I like side lever action. But I have not problems yet to report with the bolt action of the Falcon. A combination of this alloy magazineincluding numbers for knowing available pellets with a side lever acton would be unbeatable.
      What others should know:If you want the rifle for hunting small animals this is the ticket. If you need more power for your bigger animals hunting, buy ALSO an Evanix AR6. These are the only air rifles you will need. You may subsitute the Falcon with the S410 but you will have some less power. If you subsitute the Falcon with the Evanix Rainstorm you will have more power, a little less accuracy, but much more trouble to fill it with hand pump. S10 Blizzard and Rainstorm has caused us a lot of trouble to fill them.

      Things I liked:Finally I decided to buy this Rifle. In order that you can be happy or not happy with what you bought , you first need to know what you expect from your purchase. What I expected from the Falcon Prairie Cal. 22 was the quality and accuracy of the Air Arms S410 and the power of the Evanix Renegade. That's exactly what I received in this rifle, but with a premium: It's as easy to fill as the Benjamin Discovery. The stock is the best I have seen in an Air Rifle (and the stock of the S410 is beutiful). The rifle gives 30 shots with no hittting down in target at 40 yards. I like to re-fill the rifles after 15 shots, so when I go hunting I bring with me in my car a hand pump. Therefore I'm more focus on how much effort it takes to re-fill the rifle than on how many shots I get from one fill. Filling this rifle is much more easy than filling the Talon, the Sumatra, the AR6, the Rainsotorm, the Renegade and the Marauder.
      Things I would have changed:This rifle has two funny things: The magazine and the safety. Magazine is closed and made out of alloy (not so atractive), but is easy to fill and works great. Safety is located on the left side of the trigger, but I haven´t found touble with that.The bolt action works well, but is not smooth. I would include in this rifle the side lever action of the Rainstorm (not the one of the S410). Side lever action is better in the Rainsotm than the one of the S410 because it has protection to not load two pellets, but is not as smooth as the one of the S410.
      What others should know:This is a very, very good rifle for hunting birds and animals the size of racoons, jackrabits or so. For bigger animals the Rainstorm has a litlle more power (+-3%). The AR6 has +-12% more power. Rainstom and AR6 require more effort to re-fill them, and notwithstanding these rifles are accurate, Falcon has better quailty and is more accurate. Accuracy of Falcon is like the one of the S410 and same or better that the one you get with Marauder, but has more power than both. Only things that you will miss from the S410 is the possibility of regulate power, the smooth lever action and transparent magazzine. But you will get a better and more comfortable stock and a little bit of more power.
