    Things I liked:

    Nice looking rifle, bit long. Bought it to tear apart and change the air pressure, hammer, valve, bottle, moderator and such. Shoots like the best, fast, powerful and secure.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it a 300 bar rifle and have the compressed air stored under the barrel too, so there is more backup. Please make a strong bipod for this rifle...

    What others should know:

    Not an indoor or backyard rifle. Even with a good moderator still a big bang :-)

    Things I would have changed:

    Needs a more reliable valve.

    What others should know:

    Beware of the TX2 valve..Just got the .50 Texan, took it to the range, charged it to 3000 psi. shot it 3 or 4 times, recharged it to 3000 psi, shot it 2 or 3 times, on the next shot the valve dumped to zero .and drove the scope back into my eye, lots blood. Called Air Force and talked to Camille. It was a very unsatisfactory call. Her position was that it was operator error, and there was no way anything could be wrong with the TX2 valve. She suggested that I recharge the tank and fire it again to see if the same thing happened again, which would hve been nuts..When I removed the tank and valve to send it back to Air Force (at my expense) when I shook the tank there was a rattle in it, maybe a broken part of the valve? It should be noted that I have owned an Air Force Condor .177 for some years and have had no problems with it.

    Things I liked:

    Everything! So far I've had only a chance to fire it @ 10 meters, in the basement. I'm using a cheap scope & mounts, until my 30 mm mounts arrive. Then I'll mount my intended Hawke scope, & start to get serious, outside. Until then, I'm conservative on the "accuracy" rating. But it sure does look promising!! I've got to workup the power settings for the (2) different "flat nose slugs" that I obtained @ the purchase. (Fun ahead ~ eee-ha!!)

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, so far.

    What others should know:

    Get one ~ join the fun!!

    Things I liked:

    simplicity. easy to use and power, this airgun is awesome on power and accuracy without to much tuning. The lack of percussion makes this a hunting gun I can shoot without headaches and noise level is minimal with moderator. LOUD without

    Things I would have changed:

    does not take much to remove bluing from barrel. just taking the end cap off scars the barrel rest of the airgun seems to have a harder bluing coat on it.

    What others should know:

    wonderful hunting airgun for large game. with the right bullets I have been lucky and dropped large pigs and deer in there tracks. Practice is essential for proper shot placement and judgement on whether to take the shot or not . 100 yard kills are a reality. large range of bullets to select from both premade and casting molds. Not backyard friendly without moderator

    Things I liked:

    This gun is powerful, and I mean powerful! Before purchasing the AirForce Texan, I purchased a Seneca Dragon Claw .50 caliber big bore air rifle, last year, and thought nothing could compare, but the AirForce Texan, surpasses my Dragon Claw, when it comes power. I like the power of the gun, the accuracy, the ease of reloading it, and the feel of the gun, when its against your shoulder, it just fits.

    Things I would have changed:

    The length is a bit long, but I knew what I was getting, and the length will be something I get used to.

    What others should know:

    The gun is loud, not at all backyard friendly, so if you have close neighbors, you may have to shoot elsewhere.

    Things I would have changed:

    maybe throw in a allen key for the suppressor

    What others should know:

    READ directions when assembling even if you think you know how hit goes together its will help you in the end. put a small dab of silicon grease on air tank O ring. and loosen the small grub screw that lock the tank nut in before installing

    Things I would have changed:

    I would not change anything but it be nice if it came with scope mounts or even the whole scope unit.

    What others should know:

    The sound of it and kickback is equivalent to an AR15. You can get around ten accurate shots before it starts losing pressure. Last thing is save you money to buy a 4000psi compressor, you dont always want to use a hand pump. It takes around 400-500 pumps

    Things I would have changed:

    AR style weaver rails everywhere like the Benjamin armada would be super nice in a perfect world but Oh well !

    What others should know:

    Wear ear plugs , it is loud , and expect a little kick ,

    this gun is the very best gun made;

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing;

    What others should know:

    The Texan .457 is really a very accurate gun. And if tuned right, it is amazing. Setting your ammo to the proper setting when you dial it in on the rifle may take a few rounds to set, but once it;s there the gun will react exactly as it should. This gun is a crafted piece of equipment that's far above most other rifles. and if you check out most of the other reviews and videos by people on U-Tube, you can get a sense of just how much you can do with this gun. But one thing I will say for everyone that owns this gun is that you should get your self a deresonator which will take the vibration out of the barrel when you shoot. You can get them at Hunter Supply,and also, if you want your gun to be very quiet, like mouse farts, then you should get the Texan Short Shroud .457, it's so silent that you can't even hear the crack of the rifle. It's at Hunters Supply too.I use both because I shoot indoors when weather is nasty or too cold, or wet, I have a little over 10 meters indoors.

    Things I liked:

    Outstanding power and lots of available ammo and other aftermarket stuff for it. After trying ammo from many different sources I have settled on Nielsen Specialty for the most accurate ammo for it.

    Things I would have changed:

    I have never been a fan of the appearance of the AirForce design, however the more I use this the less I mind the Star Wars blaster appearance.

    What others should know:

    If you are looking for a high quality hunting air rifle for large game this is completely adequate. It is big, loud and has tons of power. Tuning and zeroing your Texan takes some time and attention (and a lot of air). Buy several different weights and types of ammo from different sources to find what your Texan prefers as you would any other air rifle. Fine tune with the power wheel starting at the lowest power level and work your way up slowly.

    Things I liked:

    its a pin point hitter and is so great in the hitting power and so well made. and shoots as well as any rim fire rifle i have ever shot and that is many up to a 155 cannon when i was in the army. i cant say enough about this air rifle as its just perfect.

    Things I would have changed:

    not one thing its just as it should be

    What others should know:

    ya just bite the bullet as they say and go for it you will be so impressed in it yourself and enjoy this rifle

    Things I liked:

    Love love love it .. what an AWESOME airgun .. Ive 4 now - bulldog / Hercules / marauder & now the Texan in 45 .. all are nice . But this one is my favorite ! Love the power & accuracy & light weight .. will be one I keep for years to come .. nice tight groups at 100 yards - powerful enough to take Arizona elk .

    Things I would have changed:

    For $1000 it really should have had a better buttstock . Their selling on eBay .. not really needed .. but it is a much bettter look

    What others should know:

    Take your time and seat the bullet / pellet good for spot accuracy .

    It's American Powerful ,and just simply a nail driver,took a gem out in the field ,loud but I hunt for the table ,so dont need a second shot in most cases.

    Things I would have changed:

    little loud,but the power that it pushes,well nothing to change for me

    What others should know:

    It's a little more money than I intended to spend,and that never happens with us air gunners,I'm laughing,but seriously well worth the ,'for myself', 'the investment',certainly a game changer for me and my life style,good gunning folks
