  • Mike from USA asked:

    What grain hollow point is good for deer hunting

    • Tyler from USA:

      Which caliber specifically are you looking at?

  • Jeremy from USA asked:

    What is the twist rate on the carbine. Heard they were different from the standard Texan?

    • John from USA asked:

      Hi, Is it possible to purchase the 45 cal carbine barrel only? Thanks John

      • Tyler from USA:

        Yes, it should be available from Airforce directly.

    • Tom from USA asked:

      How many shots per fill

      • Tyler from USA:

        Depends on caliber, but those figures are almost identical to the standard Texan, and will change depending on what slug you use.

    • RHumphreys from USA asked:

      I am seeing the 357 has significantly more fpe than the 457. Is that correct? Or is that some type of error?

      • Tyler from USA:

        .457 will put out around 400 FPE, .357 will put out around 350 FPE.

    • Bruce from USA asked:

      I see that the loudness is the same (4) for the TexanSS as well as this carbine. Is there any real difference in loudness between the two?

      • Tyler from USA:

        Yes, it's a considerable difference. The Texan Carbine should be a 5, not a 4.

    • Daniel from USA asked:

      Is the tank on this air rifle carbon fiber, don't see anyway just says 490cc

      • Tyler from USA:


    • Mark from USA asked:

      Will the airbolt seat properly in this shorter barrel since the standard texan barrel is too long for bolts.

      • Tyler from USA:

        Yes, it will work. How fast it will shoot though, I cannot say for sure. It will not shoot as strongly as the 24" barrel, but how much the 3/4" increase will rob off of the velocity is unknown.

    • JON from USA asked:

      Is it silenced like the ss

      • Tyler from USA:


    • Will from USA asked:

      Are they illegal for a felon?

      • Tyler from USA:


    • carlo from Italy asked:

      good morning, i you need special documentation to receive it in Italy?

      • Gary from USA asked:

        How many shots per fill can be expected in each caliber?

        • Tyler from USA:

          That depends on the ammo weight used. I would expect around 4-5 good shots with heavier ammo in either caliber.

      • DAN from USA asked:

        You list the speed but not the bullet weight needed to get that speed,,

        • Tyler from USA:

          This rifle should shoot the 190 grain ammo at around 750 fps, the lighter roundballs will be closer to 1000 fps
