AFC (airflow control) technology is a dual-stage noise-reduction system by Humbert CTTS, renowned silencer designer
Ambidextrous synthetic stock
2-stage adjustable trigger
Buttstock spacers to change length of pull
Integral Weaver/Picatinny rails on forearm
Weaver/Picatinny scope rail
9 lbs., including scope and mount
40 lbs. cocking effort
Includes factory-mounted (sighted-in at 25 yds) 4-16x40 AO scope (mil-dot reticle), mount, hex wrench, lens cleaning cloth and elasticized lens covers
Here are the benefits of a gas ram over a metal mainspring:
No spring torque
No spring fatigue, even if you leave it cocked for hours
Functions perfectly in cold weather
Lasts longer than a metal spring
If you're interested in the tactical look, then feast your eyes on the Stoeger ATAC Suppressor air rifle! With a gas ram that will let you keep your gun cocked without worrying about breaking the mainspring, this gun could become your next all-day hunting rifle. It comes with a factory-mounted 4-16x40 scope with an adjustable objective and mil-dot reticle. You can add other optics on the Weaver/Picatinny rails on either side of the forearm. Adding a laser or flashlight will help you acquire your targets in dim light, such as dawn and dusk.
Things I liked:Easy to shoot well. Things I would have changed:Don't count on it being zeroed @ 25 yards out of the box. Heck, my scope needed to straightened as it was 5-10 degrees off plumb. Mind you, once I straightened it out it still was easy to zero and I keyholing shots on the bullseye within 20 shots. What others should know:I can't tighten the screw to shorten the second stage of trigger pull. Not bad where it was at but I wanted to see what is was like.
Things I liked:Rifle is great but I went to better trigger,now its even better Things I would have changed:Trigger and mounting screws What others should know:I cant keep mounting screws tight. After changing trigger mounting screws will not stay tight. Went to red loctite,no luck. Will shoot 3/8 group at 10 meters after retightning,shoot 15 rounds rifle shoots all over the place. Tighten again and group goes back to 3/8. Anybody got any ideas?
Things I liked:Love the stock. Like the power. Good trainer for trigger control. Taken a few pellets to find accuracy, but good to go. Cousin and I were shooting pellets down the throats of old 308 win brass at 15yds with new scope and rings. Things I would have changed:Scope, and the trigger. What others should know:Make sure all mounting screws are tight. Might be worth your time to pull them out, clean off packing oil and lock tight all threads.
This question is for "Dan the Man" which caliber did you purchase?
Dan the Man from USA:
I do not own one of these. I have fire a good number of them in both calibers.
Keric from USA asked:
So I just got my ATAC rifle and I gave it a good inspection...it looks like my barrel has NO rifling. It looks like a polished mirror surface...is this normal or do I have a bad barrel?
Keric from USA:
UPDATE::: Just to be clear...my ATAC rifle was perfect from the factory. The rifling is there...they are called MICRO GROOVES...the guys in my shooting club told me that the Rifle shoots exceptionally well. These are field target guys with PCP's and Diana 54's. So they know their stuff. I scored 20 points out of 48 during a Hunter Field target match AND my rifle wasn't even sighted in properly, also with no AO scope dope and I still haven't found my "perfect pellet". I will do a complete review once I complete my efforts to sight in and break in!!! Right now, all I can say is this gun ROCKS!!! As good if not better than the UM Octane.
Dan the Man from USA:
Sounds defective, if you got it from Pyramyd, call them at 1-888-262-4867.
Bill from USA asked:
I'm trying to decide weather to get his airgun or the Stoeger Arms X20S? Which should i buy.
Chevota from USA:
The X20S has a coil spring so it'll have that twang which is imo very annoying, and makes the gun much louder overall. You can do some things to tame that noise down to virtually silent like the gas spring of the ATAC, so I'd decide based on if you're willing to do the work or not.
The specs and reviews say the ATAC cocking effort is much higher, not sure what that's about or if it's true, but something to consider. Maybe they shortened the barrel even further...
The scope setup on the X20S was not usable as it came for me, the scope sat ~3" too far fwd and others have said the same. The scope on the ATAC looks to be very nice, but I can't say about the quality. I believe the price diff is mainly the different spring and scope, otherwise it should be the same gun more or less.
Geno from USA:
This. ATAC is a Gas. Piston and the X20S is a spring piston. Spring guns SUCK. i do not have this one but i did have an X20S and i replaced it with a Benjamin Trail NP becuase it was in accurate and the spring actually broke. My NP in phenominel. I can shoot cans at 100yds+ and is very powerful. Love it
