Can this gun shoot .458 copper projectiles or only lead?
Lead only is recommended
Can you shoot .357 bullets from a .458-.357 plastic sabot like the ones used with a muzzleloader? Or will it interfere with the baffles?
I suppose it could be done, but I would definitely recommend calling Airforce up and asking before you try anything.
Does the power wheel make a big difference? How many fps does it reduce the power when you go from the highest setting to the lowest one?
does the Texan take a special scope
No, any scope will work
would i be able to use 457 or 458 caliber bullets for reloading instead of pellets
I don't see why not if sized properly. You wouldn't want to use something coated though, stick to straight lead.
what grain pellet would was used for the 930 fps reading
$1149.99 with this price, its already has a extra tank and contains telescope?
No, that price is for the gun only
i would like to purchase the texan ss with mount, rings, and scope. is there a good quality package that comes with what i would like?
Has anyone taken any big game with this air rifle (.45) ? If so at what range?
What scope is he using in the video?
It's a Leapers 3-12x44 SWAT compact scope: Leapers UTG 3-12x44 AO Rifle...
What fps do the air venturi 118 and 133 gr go out of texan ss 30 cal??
Is it possible to use the normal, unsilenced barrel on this model ?
How many shots can you get on a full tank?
Depends on caliber and bullet weight. Anywhere from 10-15 good shots with light weight roundballs in the .308, to 4-5 with the heavier pellets in the .45
or if you want to donate one of this I will be very grateful every week I will post on my channel here in Brazil!
Is this value and I are dollar or real?because I'm from Brazil I'm very fond of this weapon!
Is it a dovetail rail that the hand rest is attached to, located before the shroud. If so is it removable to add an dovetail to weaver adapter? Thank you
Yes and Yes.
Can the texan ss air tank be filled with one of the airforce compressor hand pumps?
Hi do you ship to France ?
I have the first version Texan .45cal - can this unit be retrofitted with the new silenced barrel ?
You'd have to ask Air Force. Bear in mind, the barrel length is different between the Texan and the Texan SS, so you'd likely have to purchase a second barrel if it's possible.
How many refills could I get with a Benjamin 90 cu inch tank?
From 2k to 3k = 3 full fills and some leftover, but if you recharge at 2150 then 4 fills. Per the online cal I use which is pretty neat: sye.dk/airgun/index.php
About 5-6 full fills from 2000 back to 3000 psi. That's assuming you have the full 4500 psi in the Benji tank
Will the Benjamin hand air pump work to fill this or do I need the Air Force pump?
Yes, the Benjamin pump would work
When will this gun become available? It has been on Pre-Order for quite some time now.
Hopefully by November
what is the length of the shrouded texan?
I have seen that there are potential upgrades to 4500 psi for the Texan. Are these upgrades supported by AirForce? Are there any safety considerations with the gun operating at 4500 psi?
You would need a valve regulated to 2000psi. Some new airguns coming on the market have 2000psi regulated valves and tanks 4350psi
You'd have to call Airforce and ask but I highly doubt that they are supported by Airforce
Specs say # 4 medium high?
Which bipod is that in the photo?
It is a bipod that Airforce offers: http://www.airforceairguns.com/AirForce-Airguns-Bipod-p/u1006.htm
Where can I find range ballistics chart for this rifle?
Airforce is still in the testing process with these but they'd be the ones to contact
It went from a loudness of 5 to 4. Added almost a pound of weight and $150.00. More bulky than the original. Do you still need hearing protection? If so what is the point !!
I have been told by Airforce reps that hearing protection is no longer needed but we will not know for sure until they actually arrive or we see some test results.
They will sell it on the .357?
At this point, only .45
what effective range does it have
That is more based upon accuracy than anything, and we have seen game taken out past 100 yards with the standard Texan.
Interesting. An almost .50 cal air rifle. What would be it's effective range? And about how far would this .45 pellet (almost wouldn't want to call it a pellet) travel overall? Thanks-
In terms of effective distance, there's no reason that you wouldn't be able to take game effectively out to 100 yards, probably further. But that will depend more on accuracy than energy. In terms of total travel distance, theoretically, probably just under 1000 yards if fired at the perfect angle. But in terms of energy, you'd probably get a few hundred yards out of it with over 100 fpe of energy at point of impact.
