  • Elias from USA asked:

    Why do I have to fill the air cylinder with the cocked gun?

    • Tyler from USA:

      When filling from empty (this goes for just about any PCP) cocking the gun is necessary to fill. If there is already air in the pistol, then you do not need to cock it to fill.

  • Delbert from USA asked:

    Just wondering why the bolt on the .177 moves with each shot while the .22 does not move. I love my .177 Bandit, but it moves just like the one in the video does.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Likely just a breech seal tightness thing, shouldn't be anything to worry about unless you're feeling air escape out of the breech when you shoot

  • Wayne Meyer from USA asked:

    Will the Stormrider barrel band fit the Bandit? I'd like to get rid of the front sight and maybe stabilize the barrel a bit.

    • Keith from USA:

      According to the techs at Pyramyd Air the Chaser rifle barrel band will fit.

  • John from USA asked:

    Does this use the same fill probe and pump as the Stormrider rifle?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Same probe. Any pump with a female QD on the hose can work with that probe

  • Dennis from USA asked:

    Will high 11 mm Rings allow a 1 inch tube Red dot to clear the magazine when it is in place?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Yes

  • Cygnus X from USA asked:

    trigger adjustable ?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Yes

  • Tim from USA asked:

    Please give me a quick explanation of the PCP system.

    • Tyler from USA:

      PCPs use an external air source to charge them up and then get a certain number of shots before requiring a refill. Does that help?

  • David from USA asked:

    How many shots per fill ? Thanks Dave

    • Tyler from USA:

      About two magazines in each caliber

  • matt from USA asked:

    Is the LDC removable?

    • Leonard from USA:

      Yes, just screws off, but does leave the threaded area unprotected.

    • Tyler from USA:

      No

  • TOLBERT from USA asked:

    How many shots per fill on the .177 vs 22?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Two mags in each roughly, though it will depend on the pellet used and what you consider an acceptable velocity range

  • Bruce from USA asked:

    Where is the Bandit made?

    • Tyler from USA:

      China

  • Randall from USA asked:

    This item looks great. Could someone compare it with (my( Baikal MP46M .177 in noise/report (very important around here) and in accuracy?

    • Tyler from USA:

      The Bandit is very quiet, and has very good accuracy. I've tested a few that punch tiny groups at 10-15 yards, but it's not on the same level as the IZH in terms of overall quality

  • Dennis from USA asked:

    do you need a quick connect added onto the probe?

    • Tyler from USA:

      No, the probe comes with a male QD on it

  • Michael from USA asked:

    Is this pistol good enough, at this price point, to be a 10 meter competitor for a new shooter?

    • PMF from USA:

      My recollection is that 10m has to be "single shot" and "500 fps or less." Check out the Air Venturi V10 as this is a competition pistol. Also I would verify the 10m restrictions before investing in anything for competition.

    • Tyler from USA:

      I wouldn't recommend it. The grip is too large for most shooters with medium/small hands.

  • Doug from USA asked:

    What is the approximate shot count for .177 and .22?

    • Tyler from USA:

      About two magazines in each

  • Tim from USA asked:

    What scope would you recommend for this pistol?

  • John from USA asked:

    Do you offer a shoulder stock for this pistol?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Not at this time

  • Rodney from USA asked:

    11mm dovetail rail ... to mount optic will you need to remove rear sight

    • Tyler from USA:

      Yes

  • Donald from USA asked:

    What 22 cal pellet is recommended for the Bandit?

    • Tyler from USA:

      If it's anything like the Stormrider and Chaser, H&N or JSB are going to be your best bets. But each gun is different, so some testing will be required to determine what your gun likes best.

  • Keith from USA asked:

    In the images of the pistol it shows a case. Does this come with the pistol?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Yes

  • Deter from USA asked:

    Is the silencer portion removable? Im guessing not... silencers put me off from buying because certain kinds of pellets cant be used without damaging the silencer or yourself :(

    • Tim from USA:

      The suppressor is removable for cleaning the barrel, baffles, and spacers. NOTE: Remember the order in which each part was removed to put back together properly when finished cleaning.

    • Mark from USA:

      Not sure if they sealed the front as well as the barrel attachment. That said the front on my (other than Diana) version unscrews and allows the baffle removal.

    • Tyler from USA:

      No, it is fixed. Not sure what kind of pellets you're using, but anything that is properly sized for the caliber of your pistol shouldn't be a problem passing through the suppressor.

  • Mark from USA asked:

    It looks like they have the great Chaser moderator. I hope they up the bolt handle size and give the trigger the improvments of the V2 Stormrider before it ships

    • Mark from USA:

      Fresh picture and sure enough the bolt handle is the uberbolt. The evolving pictures are kinda like a time lapse release improving anticipation....

    • Mark from USA:

      Be sure to radius off the plexiglass on the front of the magazine. With the left hand bolt it nicks your fingers. With the blood thinners even little gashes make it look like a crime scene.

    • Tyler from USA:

      We shall see. I believe it has the same trigger as the chaser, which isn't too bad. Not quite as adjustable as the stormrider trigger though. We will see what happens with the bolt handle. I agree, the larger one would be preferred.

  • Charles from USA asked:

    How many pumps of the Air Venturi MK4 does it take to fill the reservoir on the pistol to 200 bar?

    • Charles from USA:

      From fully empty I'd expect about 50-60 pumps based on similarly sized pistols. With residual pressure still left after shot power begins to decline, I'd expect around 30 pumps to charge it back up.

  • Charles from USA asked:

    Do you need any not included fitting or hose to connect to Air Venturi MK4 Kit by Hill Hand Pump with dry-pack?

    • Tyler from USA:

      If you buy the kit, you will not need any adapters. This pistol comes with a fill probe that has a male QD fitting machined on

  • Charles from USA asked:

    How many shots do you get after you fill the onboard reservoir to 200 bar?

    • Tyler from USA:

      From what I have heard, depending on caliber, 15-20 good shots per fill

  • Ramona from USA asked:

    Regulated?

    • Tyler from USA:

      No

  • Matt from USA asked:

    Is the bolt handle reversable, left to right or right to left?

    • Tyler from USA:

      That is only applicable if the gun is empty, but when empty, the hammer sits on the valve stem pushing it open slightly. You need to cock the hammer to remove that opening and close the valve which seals your air cylinder off. If left open, air will leak out of the barrel/breech when you try to fill.

    • Elias from USA:

      Why do I have to fill the air cylinder with the cocked gun?

    • Tyler from USA:

      It is not, though there may be right hand breeches available down the road.
