  • James from USA asked:

    The storage cylinder holds 3000psi, but how much is the operating pressure? Is that known? I know that when the valve is activated it allows a small amount of the original pressure to be released to the firing chamber. Do you know at what pressure each shot is at? Not the storage cylinder, mind you, but the amount released into the firing chamber before the slug starts it's movement. An average please will be close enough. Thank you for your time and patience.

    • Mark from USA:

      The gun can be shot down to 800 PSI or so. The gun will operate below that range but not well. You always leave 800-1000 PSI in a pcp gun.

  • jose from USA asked:

    Can air Venturi shotgun burst ammo be shot out of this gun cause I bought a lot not knowing

    • Mark from USA:

      No.

  • jose from USA asked:

    Does the .50 fit .45 caliber slugs or only .50

    • Mark from USA:

      50 cal only fits 50 cal barrels. 45 cal can take .456.

  • Don from USA asked:

    I am a bit confused as how this gun is more powerful as the Barrel is still only 34 inches and it is the same bottle as the Texan non SS version but only a longer shroud. How is that giving out more power if it is only a longer shroud and still a 34 inch Barrel

    • Mark from USA:

      The valve assembly is different.

  • Greg from USA asked:

    What is the maximum effective range for the .45caliber and the 357. Also how many shots per air tank

    • Mark from USA:

      We have seen accurate shots at 100-120 yards. You get 5-6 shots per fill.

  • Tyler from USA asked:

    What's the sound comparison with the lss and regular Texan .. is it worth the difference.?

    • EDMUND from USA:

      I have a .308 LSS. The decrease is not enough to justify the cost. There is no sound batten in either the shroud or moderator. There are aftermarket moderators that work much better for the same price. You can easily use 1/4" Hard felt in the shroud and baffles to reduce the sound.

    • Mark from USA:

      The LSS is more quiet than to unshrouded. The unshrouded is comparable to a 308. the LSS closer to a 22 lr.

  • Michael from USA asked:

    I asked these questions directly to AirForce via there website and got no response after 2 weeks. Can someone that actually has these weapons answer them? Can you please provide the average decibel rating for the Texan LSS. 357 and also the Texan LSS. 457 when shooting a heavy pellet for big game/deer hunting? Can you provide the average drop in inches at 100 yards for the same air rifles listed above when they have been sighted in at 50 yards? What would the drop/rise in the trajectory be for these air rifles be at 20 yards if they were sighted in at 50 yards?

    • Mark from USA:

      We have not tested any Airforce gun strictly with a decimeter. We do not calculate drop rates on pellets/slugs. With variable power that is a task for the individual shooter.

  • Don from USA asked:

    If you wanted to avoid using a scope, how would you do it with this gun ?

    • Mark from USA:

      The only option would be a red dot sight.

  • Brian from USA asked:

    Does the 357 LSS have a TX2 valve with the CF Tank ? or can you get that way yet?

    • Val from USA:

      So far only .457 came out in CF tank configuration.

  • David from USA asked:

    Can one use sabot bullets for firing smaller caliber bullets in a .45 caliber rifle w/o plastic fouling? This might allow me to fire .357 cal. hollow point, copper jacketed pistol bullets that are 158 gr.

    • Mark from USA:

      No. Sabots from airguns are not workable. The sabot does not work.

  • Jesse from USA asked:

    Does current inventory (.45) now have the TX2 valve?

    • Mark from USA:

      Yes

  • Heath from USA asked:

    Average shots per fill? It is understood with variable power there is no straight answer but a round about at full power would be nice to know with about a 2-300 grain slug.

    • Mark from USA:

      6 shots per fill.

  • Johnny from USA asked:

    Does the Texan LSS have the new TX2 Valve

    • Mark from USA:

      No

  • James from USA asked:

    Can this shoot air Venturi air bolts and if so at what speed?

    • Mark from USA:

      No

  • Michael from USA asked:

    In .45 cal. how many shots can you get on full power?

    • Mark from USA:

      6-8

  • Arlan from USA asked:

    Does the Texan LSS have a dovetail for a bipod?

    • Ben from USA:

      Yes, the ring after the forward grip and before the shroud starts has four small rails. One located at 12/3/6/9 o'clock.

    • holl0918 from USA:

      It looks like it does, just a small one right in front of the foregrip. There is a rail on the ring right between the fore grip and shroud/moderator.

    • Mark from USA:

      No
