How many shots will you get from your 500cc Big Bore 44 909 Light Hunter? Our tech department filled their dual-tank air rifle to 3,000 psi, loaded it with 166-grain bullets and let loose! They shot the first 6 shots on high power. The first shot was 745 fps. Shot 6 was 713 fps.

The next 12 bullets were shot on low power. Shot 7 was 683 fps, and the final shot on low power was 574 fps. That brought the tank down to 800 psi for a total of 18 shots.

This shows you what one gun can do. Velocity and psi levels will vary gun to gun.

Get lots of shots with these big air tanks! Two tanks hold up to 500cc of air, giving you lots of hunting power and lots of shots. The Sam Yang Big Bore 44 Light Hunter air rifle delivers authoritative shots when it sends those .45-caliber pellets (actually, they're bullets) downrange.

Ideal for eradicating possums, beavers, nutria, raccoons and similar-sized pests who invade your ponds, gardens and fields.

Things I liked: The bluing and metal work is second to none. Beautiful deep blue. The metal surface is as smooth as it gets. The stock is very well done, fit and finish. The balance of this rifle is perfect and does not feel as heavy as it is.

Things I would have changed: I thought this gun was going to feel like a shotgun in hand. It does not. It feels like a carbine over and under shotgun. I think this could be offered in a longer barrel version and get the velocity near the Texan.

What others should know: I have this model and the Texan. The Texan is much faster and the trigger is far nicer. This gun however is perfect out of the box with open sights. I cast my own pellets for this rifle and the Texan. (same size) The cost is 2 or 3 pennies per shot. I am working with several experimental loads. I will post results of these loads on my Texan review.

Things I liked: The style, it looks like a high end over/under shotgun. Almost as powerful as a 45ACP handgun. The simplicity. no batteries or electronics, just charge, load, aim and fire. cheap to shoot.A good and inexpensive way to stay sharp with your "fire arm" rifles when you can't get to the range. They are both fundamentally the same thing.

Things I would have changed: The sights are gigantic, the front blade completely blots out a target at 30 yards. Peep sights or ghost ring sights would be a vast improvement, or at least make the buckhorn sights the same size as you would find on a powder burner. I ended up putting a scope on it.I got mine a few years ago so mine has the two elks dueling engraved on the side, not sure what sam yang was thinking when they changed it to the dude with the lightning bolt, the elks are much cooler.

What others should know: It is loud. no surprise. unfortunately i live in a state where suppressors are not legal under any circumstances. I am sure my neighbors would appreciate it if i could use one. .454 roundball is what this {mine does} rifle likes best.I can get decent groupings at 60 yards shooting unsupported. In my opinion, that really is the maximum distance i would take a shot at any live target. the conical pellets seem to be not as accurate. get yourself a leapers bug buster compact scope and you won't be sorry. You can use standard scope mounts.As others have said, this is a serious weapon, and if you plan on using it in your backyard exercise extreme caution and safety while doing so.

Things I liked: Everything! Makes you feel like Dirty Harry! It's LOUD AS HELL for an air gun & I actually like how loud it is. I've owned many airguns although this is my first larger than 25 cal air gun & what a night & day difference it is. Definatly not a toy & very comparable to a fire arm of the same caliber, maybe even better for several reasons. All that power with no recoil! Makes it much more accurate than a fire arm of the same caliber. Also affordable to own & shoot! What more could someone want?

Things I would have changed: Absolutely nothing! Love it!

What others should know: It's a lot lighter than it looks in the pictures. Also, it's very loud but still not as loud as a fire arm.

  • Asylum81 from USA asked:

    why is this model on clearance at most retailers lately? Is there a newer model coming out, etc? I am going to purchase one but not until I get an answer first.

    • Ian from USA asked:

      Will a hill hand pump work with this rifle with out modifications to the hose. If not what parts are needed to make them compatible?

      • Val from USA:

        It will work without modifications to the hose. If you get QD version, then you might need a QD adapter. Otherwise, it will just work.

      • Stanley from USA:

        Try # PY-A- 2841 making it a foster fill.

    • jason from USA asked:

      Does Sam yang sell this model with left handed stock ?

      • Val from USA:


      • Stanley from USA:

        I would say no but you could call Air Venturi at 216-220-1180. You could still shoot it left handed anyway .
