Things I liked:

Good accuracy for a big bore and how hard it hits

Things I would have changed:

Wish the moderator was quick detach for easy portability. But, you know that this rifle is long going into the purchase.

What others should know:

It destroys backstops, in a fun way...hehehe. I use 6x6 landscaping timber target bunkers and the slugs go in about 1-3 inches, depending on the range. Mine really likes Nielsen 338gr HP .510 slugs, keeping groups in the 1-2MOA range from 50-150m. I get 3 usable shots per tank. Does not shoot the 4 types of .50 Senecas well. I tried the 177gr RB, 185gr PHP, 336gr FP, and 420gr FP. All shoot very loosely with groups of 4-5MOA at 50m. And make sure you have proper torque your scope mounting bolts, the Texan recoils like a small centerfire/heavy springer. Also, with the long barrel, remember to squeeze AND hold the trigger (follow-through)...the pellet needs time to make it out.

By Seth from USA on 2021-11-02 10:17:42

Things I liked:

I like the performance of the rifle, accurate and plenty of power

Things I would have changed:

My gun leaks off over a 24 hr period from 3600 to 2100 psi. I'm not a fan of an automatic safety, but I understand why it's there. I would have given it a five star review if it weren't for the leaking

What others should know:

Get an electric pump to fill i, maybe a tether tank and lots of ammo you will need it

    Things I liked:

    This is a great rifle with a big punch. It groups well.

    Things I would have changed:

    More adjustment to be able to lengthen the stock more. I bought a but pad to help (I can't use two T's in but or the site thinks I'm talking dirty)

    What others should know:

    You will need an adapter if you want a Picatiny scope mount, no big deal. Low scope mounts worked for me. Be prepared to supply a lot of air for this gun. This gun will group but you have to get to know it first. Mine shoots a 385 gr. From Mr. Hollowpoint well.

    Things I liked:

    Extremely powerful and accurate, a great combination. Have previously owned an airforce product and I knew the quality would be there. The real selling point is the service/warranty. I had a tank failure after about 13 years of heavy use and they replaced it of free - quick and easy. Just make sure you register the gun with airforce after you purchase and you are all set.

    Things I would have changed:

    Everyone would love a lower price but this level of quality costs more to manufacture.

    What others should know:

    See above - they really stand behind their product

    Things I liked:

    It's ease of operation for one, there's no faults there.. It's pretty straight forward, pull the leaver insert the ammo of your choice, disenguage the safety, and fire... And after the wave of exhilaration washes over your face, you just have to take a deep breath and compose yourself.. Because after that your going to ask yourself how powerful is this rifle, because it just leaves you dumfounded..

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing because there is nothing for you to want to change, except maybe your shorts after you fire it for the first time...!

    What others should know:

    The addiction starts not long after your first shot....!

    Made in America!!! Great rifle. Accurate right out of the box and puts the lead right where you want it.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would love to be able to attach a sling. Price but worth every penny when you hit where you aim. Especially when that big whitetail steps out

    Things I liked:

    Easy to put together and had it out on the range shooting 1 inch groups with ease. I got the .50 cal and now that I see the ease of use and accuracy Im looking to get a 308. I would recommend this air rifle to everyone

    Things I would have changed:

    My ONLY issue is that there is no way to install a sling on these guns. Other than that A+++++

    Things I liked:

    Nearly everything, action is smooth, very accurate, trigger could use a bit of work, but overall very nice weapon.

    Things I would have changed:

    Needs some pic rails included, and a stock would be great!

    What others should know:

    VERY AIR HUNGRY, especially the 50cal, nearly one hole at 50yds, be ready to invest in an air compressor!

    Absolutely the BEST AIR RIFLE out there period. A complete Tact Driver. Go to Bob get an assortment of lead let them rip! Wow! I love Mr. Hollow Points 345 and the 385 grains. My Coyotes specials are Bob's 310 conicals...Pure Awesome for head shouts or any body shoots for that matter. Get the .50 heavy to carry well worth it! Thx AIR FORCE & MR. HOLLOW POINT! Oh, also Mrs. Hollow Point! Love you all! GODBLESS! Me

    Things I would have changed:

    Sling Studs.

    Air Force could put a trouble shooting list in the box for new air gun owners for air leaks and no dry firing. Luckily with all the reading ahead of time I knew not to do that..

    Things I liked:

    1. Long barrel 2. suppressor(sounds like powder burner without it) 3. superb accuracy(one hole groups at 50y) 4. excellent power (it will hit 800 FPE with 500+g ammo)

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing... It is what it is. Be aware of what you are getting.

    What others should know:

    1. You cant shoot this in your back yard unless you live in the county. Slugs are lethal as long as they are in the air. Gun will require trips to range to site in unless you live outside the city. 2. It is extremely air hungry. It will overwhelm any HPA infrastructure you have for smaller guns. Assume you will need 2 4500psi tanks (a large one for the range and a small one for hunting). Only 2-3 good shots from cylinder on gun. Small air compressors like Nomad will fill tank on gun with patience but you will likely need a $2000+ 4500 psi compressor to keep this thing in air. I got tired of trips to scuba shop quick when I saw how often it would be. 3. You will want a good scope. Gun has significant recoil and will destroy cheap glass. 4. You will want to feed it good ammo to take advantage of accuracy. I recommend slugs from Mr Hollow Point or Neilson Precision. These are expensive. 5. This gun is like buying a high end sports car ie the cost of the gun is just the beginning.

    Things I liked:

    I love the simplicity of function and (of coarse) looks great. Good sound level. Just 11 months till deer season!

    Things I would have changed:

    Dovetail to Weaver or Picatinny rail. This rifle really deserves it. The aluminum tank 'may' balance (for me) rifle better. Since this has carbon I can't say for sure.

    What others should know:

    I rarely put 5 stars on anything...this is close. Ammo....0.510 is a little hard to come by, but then again what isn't. Sabots. So far she seems to do them fine, just need a little lube to keep the plastic from coating barrel, and wiping out barrel every 5-10 just to keep it happy. The moderator should be removed from end with sabots to prevent damage or at least baffles pulled out. The carbon fiber tank gives more flexibility on projectile types and weights, but not really needed for the lighter weights. They are shooting at about 2400- 2800 anyway.

    Things I liked:

    Quiet, accurate, powerful and fun to hunt with. Dropped a deer where she stood, no tracking necessary.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like a quick release/tool less air tank. Its too long to fit in a gun case with the air tank installed and I dont want to take the chance of losing the tool in the woods. Also, a better butt pad setup, one that wont pull my beard out.

    What others should know:

    Get a couple of the picattanny rail adapters to mount a quality scope on. I couldnt find scope rings for a 30mm scope for the 11mm dove tail.
