Things I liked:

The Kral Arms Puncher Breaker Silent Marine caught my eye because I'm a longtime bullpup user, the black and silver color combo rocks, and the design of the rifle is something that I could tinker with. I modified mine by removing the shroud, suspending the barrel, and adding a DonnyFL Ronin suppressor. It sits on a Leapers/UTG Recon 360, and not only is it whisper quiet now, the accuracy is amazing! Even though I am indoor bench-rest shooting through winter, I've still shot it off-hand, and it shoulders perfectly. Weight distribution is great, and even though the cocking/charging-handle is at the cheek position, I adapted quickly. I have a Nova Freedom .22 and a Hatsan Gladius .22, and those are two fantastic guns.. After shooting the Puncher Breaker though.. The others just sit impatiently waiting for their turns. It's just that fun! Overall, price to performance - These things are hard to beat. *Fingers Crossed* That nothing breaks, but so far.. I Highly recommend them!

Things I would have changed:

I really had to think about this one.. MY rifle setups always have two things in common: *Adjustable Cheek Combs & *Adjustable Buttplates. If they don't, I'll customize and/or modify them to. The Puncher Breakers here in the US [at least these models] are fixed. Lucky for me, I can use Med. height rings, and the scope is dead on. I do wish that I could adjust the buttplate up/down though. Just a bit. Kral does have an adjustable buttplate that fits these, and comes on a few models, however, they aren't available in the US [yet] and even after e-mailing Kral Arms directly, they don't seem to answer. So, it is what it is. Aside from that? I really wouldn't change a thing.

What others should know:

I've been shooting precision / target for about 25 years now.. In that time, I've shot a LOT of different rifles, and a bunch of bullpup specific models.. [powder burners included] The Puncher Breaker is seriously one of my favorite rifles to use. It's just the perfect combo of size, weight, feel, the design is nice, shot-count is impressive, and the accuracy I've been getting is absolutely amazing! Stacking pellets on pellets over and over again. I'm a big fan of air rifles that offer power-level adjustments, and the power-dial on the Puncher Breakers offer just that.. For indoor shooting, I've been firing at 1/2 power, and actually, that'd probably be great for small pesting too.. For outdoor shooting, they'll crank up to full power to really reach out and touch a target at long range. IMO, that's a must. **Fill Probe Compatibility** I have a Hatsan Gladius probe and a Kral Puncher Breaker probe. Both will interchange with each other. Just so others know. =)

Things I would have changed:

Wouldn't know,Never owned one that worked

What others should know:

I put 6 pellets through it to sight it in. After that,it wouldn't hold air. I sent it back TWICE for repair and received it back with the same problem. I guess you get what you pay for.

    This is my second pcp from Pyramyd Air. Also have a Walter Reign. They are both in .25 cal. No complaints with either gun. I also recommend 5-6 pellet magazines per gun. Nice to also have a pcp air compressor; makes life a lot easier.

    Things I liked:

    Size, weight and extra mag storage along with Biathlon style cocking handle are terrific. Like that it comes with air probe, goodies bag and foam cut-out padded box. Price isn't too bad for a budget PCP. The Marine finish can help with harsher environs but still would need wiping, etc. Two magazines and a magazine storage (synthetic stock only) bay is great, wish they had thought of that, as well, for the filler probe! This Bullpup form will be great for inside barn pest control once fully outfitted and tuned up. I do like the power adjuster knob but found that I keep it between middle and max power to get the 50meter shot placements.

    Things I would have changed:

    The front lower picatinny rail and the cheek piece seem like a poor (I'm being polite here) afterthought. I'd like to see those redesigned. Realizing that manufacturers need to keep costs down I'd still like to see this rifle regulated. A little bit more adjustment to the second stage of the trigger that won't lock up the action would be nice and a lever or lip attachment to the extra mag bay to help eject the spare mag would be a neat trick, not too spendy to implement.

    What others should know:

    Do not get this rifle if it's your first PCP unless you are willing to spend extra on a moderator or 'quiet' kit. It has a real "bark" that is not backyard friendly at all, at least until you muzzle it. Also, you will need either extra high scope ring mounts or a riser added before your scope rings are mounted for a useable eye relief. There are answers but you will need to look for them. Yes, one does get a good number of shots per fill even on MAX power but I am still going to go for after market reg and tuning as I hear it turns and okay airgun into a real hunter. upgrades are potentially spendy.

    Things I liked:

    Size weight accuracy 2 mags looks and shot count.

    Things I would have changed:

    Shroud needs baffles the gun is still too loud. A few QC issues.

    What others should know:

    Love my gun but from new I was getting a puff of air in my face every shot. The gun is very accurate with JSB 15.89 pellets. After a mag and a half I was always chasing my poi down. Come to find out the power adjuster was backing out on its own. I tried tightening the allen screw for the adjuster but that made it back out faster. I'm going to replace the Orings if that doesn't work Pyramyd gets this one back. I really want this gun to work.

    Things I liked:

    Size and style of gun are very comfortable. You get a lot of shots per fill and is easy to fill with my hand pump. Trigger pull on mine is great. I like the little storage compartment on front of forearm. I get really good groups with the 15.89 JSB's. Should make a really good small game gun when the time comes.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would for sure change the height of the picatinny scope rail. It is way to low. I had to make my own adapter to raise the scope and use extra high mounts. I can now use the cheek piece with the scope. Really don't like the way the forearm picatinny is mounted. It is only held on with one screw allowing the rail to move all over the place and not provide a secure mount. Two screws on this would have solved the problem.

    What others should know:

    I would buy this gun again regardless of the scope mounting issue and front rail. It is still a very good shooter for it's price. Just be prepared to do some work on it to get the scope height correct. It is a quality built gun with very few issues.

    Things I liked:

    Pretty good shooting little gun so far. It really likes the 25.39 jsb exact kings the H&N barracuda hunter extremes 28.24 gr shot ok too. I've gotten dime sized groups with the jsb's out to 50 yds. I've taken a few squirrels at 40 yds with it also.

    Things I would have changed:

    The picatiny rail they supply to go on the bottom of the riffle is cheap plastic the bipod I got to go with the gun rocks and doesn't lock in good.

    What others should know:

    Pretty straight shooting gun for the money I hand pump mine and its doable would be a lot easier with a scuba tank or compressor.

    Things I liked:

    This airgun is an outstanding value. Pellet on pellet accuracy right out of the box. 1/2" groups at 25 yds. The .25 packs enough wallop to take medium game. This is the best bullpup for the money, bar none. It balances well shooting off-hand. I live in Louisiana near the gulf. I am hoping the marine finish withstands the high humidity. My other guns have not.

    Things I would have changed:

    1. The cheek piece is too high. I have had to add a 1/2' riser to the picatinny rail and use high base mounts to get the correct eye position. 2. This gun, out of the box, is loud. I don't know why the front shroud adapter cannot be vented in a way to use the entire shroud. I removed the shroud and added a 6" moderator. Once I removed the barrel shroud, I experienced some minor barrel droop. 3. The trigger pull should be a pound lighter.

    What others should know:

    Nothing that I mentioned above would stop me from buying this gun again. I have lusted for an FX, but alas, my income doesn't match my desires. If the FX is more accurate I couldn't measure it. If your budget is like mine BUY THIS BULLPUP.

    Things I liked:

    The balance of weight is great, very surprisingly accurate. I was hitting the same hole over and over at 50 yards. Length of the gun is great. This is my first bullpup style and gotta say, I love it.

    Things I would have changed:

    The "marine" look is awesome but really attracts finger prints and shows smudges. Would also really like it if the cocking lever was about 6 inches fwd o where it is.

    What others should know:

    I had to order a special riser and 1/2 inch high rings to get the scope in a comfortable position. As mentioned by others, the lower front picatinny screw is too long to work. A few seconds on the grinder is an easy fix though. I was a bit leery about buying this with it's not so great history and problems but took the chance. REALLY glad I did. I may have just got lucky and got a perfect unicorn unit of this gun or the problems have been addressed and fixed, because this thing is utterly amazing. I have had absolutely ZERO problems and nothing but consistent perfection with this gun. Its almost "boringly accurate" when you just know exactly where you are going to hit each and every time you pull the trigger, it kinda takes some of the fun out of it. But all in all, very very pleased with it. As for long term... I can't yet say. I've put probably a couple thousand pellets through it and zero issues. Plan on putting thousands more through it on the future. If something changes...

    Things I liked:

    Nice looking rifle! This is a lot of gun for the price! Shoulders well and good balance although heavy. Very accurate with Crosman Premiers! The single shot tray works great! Magazine storage in front of the stock is very handy. Plastic stock fits my hands very comfortably. The cocking lever operates smoothly, without any issues. The trigger is crisp and easy to adjust lighter.

    Things I would have changed:

    Quality control should be better. The power markings are not centered over the adjuster. My shroud had a dent on one end, and the barrel band had flashing material on one side. Lighter weight would be nice. The shroud is just for looks, and would benefit from an air stripper and baffles.

    What others should know:

    This rifle is anything BUT silent. Very loud and definitely not backyard friendly unless you use 1/2 power. I'm getting 700 fps on 1/2 power with CPHP's. Would benefit from an aftermarket moderator. In order to get a good sight picture I had to add a 1/2" scope mount riser and use high scope mounts. The marine finish while nice, shows smudges and dirt very clearly. Despite the minor issues, this rifle is a great value and fun to shoot. My first bullpup and the price from PA was great! Be sure to get the 10 for $10, I consider a must have option from PA.

    Things I liked:

    This gun is very accurate. I have a handful of pcps, and I would definitely say that this is one of the more accurate ones. I was doubtful at first, but the stock is very comfortable. The gun is definitely quieter than the version without the shroud.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it a little quieter. Can the magazine be reversed so it doesn't hit me in the face??? Since the action is so compact due to the bullpup configuration, the magazine sits right in front of my cheek, and gets in the way a little. I wish it stuck out of the right side instead like the marauders. The screw on the bolt keeps backing out and causing the action to bind a bit. I have to retighten about every 20 shots.

    What others should know:

    There is an aftermarket kit to make this gun a little quieter. It helps a little, but can still use more improvement. It is definitely louder than a marauder. Here is the quiet kit: https://annihilatorairgunsandtuning.com/product/kral-puncher-quiet-kit-17722-cal/

    Things I liked:

    The looks, feel, compactness. Fit n finish excellent. Adjustable power. Superb accuracy. Chrony numbers avg. Full-1015fps. 3/4- 896fps. 1/2- 634 fps. Low- 443 fps. All with JSB 18.13. 3/4 power seems to be sweet spot.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better quality of internals. My original rifle failed at 300 pellets (woosh/vibrating sound then cocking lever failed to operate.) Also a .177 cal single shot tray was factory packed. And screw for picitinny rail was 2mm too long. Pyramyd Air quickly took this rifle back and sent another. Shot tray on replacement was correct, picitinny rail screw was correct. And hopefully internal valve problem won't happen to this one. It is a real tack driver! Pellet on pellet at 28 yrds.

    What others should know:

    I shoot left handed and this rifle is doable left handed. Depending on your physical make up you may have to order a picitinny riser rail to mount scope as I did to be able to have proper eye alignment to scope. I will be updating future notes on this rifle. I hope it lasts because I love shooting it. And the marine finish is very cool!

    I bought this gun last year and I like it. But you can't find any after market accessories for this. I needed silencer adapter and I had to finally call Kral company in Turkey and they told me to contact Pyramydairgun here in US. I emailed pyramyd but they didn't help. If you buy FX you can find after market accessories such as silencer, adapters, air cylinder and anything you want but for this rifle you can't find anything. Pyramy is super helpless to answer these questions.

    What others should know:

    Some of the parts in the gun are not up to the task they are used for,I had a problem with air leaking, so pyramid sent me new o rings,that was not the issue,sent it back to Pyramid and they fixed the issue,once I had it back in my hands the valve failed after only a few hundred rounds ,so I sent the gun out to a after market tuner to have it fixed,still dont have it back,I really like this little gun so I have turned it into a project, so if you buy be prepared for some ups and downs,I have other guns to shoot when it breaks so I am not left with out a gun....maybe thats why they named it the Puncher BREAKER
