Things I liked:

I'm new to this sport, and I'm overwhelmed with the styles and choices available in this market. It's apparent that Pyramyd here is the place to look and buy from - customer service is fantastic and prices seem fair. I bought this gun based on it's style and price. In fact, I just ordered another one, in the synthetic stock and .177 caliber. This gun looks and functions far above the price I paid for it. I know, several on-line reviews have been negative, but I can't find anything to fault in my gun. It looks, functions and shoots much better than I expected. The wood does not carry a "Browning" finish, but at this price, I wouldn't expect that.

Things I would have changed:

The weight. I love how this gun looks, but unless you have it mounted to shoot, it carries like a cinder block! Put a sling on it, for carrying any distance at all, BUT, like I said, when this gun is mounted, the overall weight seems MUCH less than it actually is, and it points very naturally!

What others should know:

The stock is separated from the action/barrel very easily (one screw). You can also take the two screws out of the recoil pad, and then you can rub some stain or oil on the stock, and make it look much better......if, that's important to you.

Things I liked:

I was one of the first purchaser of the Kral gun. I bought it because it was one of the few sub $500 bullpup available in wood, shrouded, multishots, efficient, compact and has adjustable trigger.

Things I would have changed:

The metal could be a little bit better both in the finishing of the edges and colors. The wood is mediocre. Add baffles to the shroud to help minimize the sound as it is not silence.

What others should know:

Gun is not choked, not as quiet as the name implies. The side lever cocking mechanism of my Kral worn out after about a 600-700 shots. It won't stay close and would pop open when the gun leans to one side. Couldn't figure out how to adjust it nor was there any instruction on how to. Over all I really like the gun but I think they need a little more time to sort out the little problems.

    Things I liked:

    Price is great for the rifle you get. Comes with 2 magazines, although at point of sale, there is no way to buy more. Walnut stock is beautiful, but heavy. Fit and finish are above average. Everything was tight when it arrived. Shipping box has custom cut foam that did a great job of protecting the rifle in transit. Comes with all the wrenches needed to make adjustments. Rear cheek rest is comfortable, but it is not a riser, only moves forward and back, not up. Box announced that the scope rail has both 11mm dovetail AND picatinny, which is false, it only has the picatinny. Side lever smoothed out after about 500 shots. Sear set screw needed to be lightened to get it from 4lbs trigger pull down to ~1.5 lbs. Love the external power adjuster, but wish it had clicks like a scope adjustment. Comes with an accessory rail for bipods or a laser that bolts on, but with only one center bolt, it will TWIST unless you put something to stop the slip under it when mounting.

    Things I would have changed:

    Kral PLEASE get rid of the leak inducing fill probe set up and jump on-board with the FOSTER quick disconnect! PROBLEM: The check valve in the air tube has a hole cut out that has no finish sanding, so when you insert the fill probe, the first ORING gets cut EVERY TIME. Mine leaked at every fill until I gently used (by hand, no machining!) a dremel polishing bit and took off the sharp edge. Also had to use a liberal amount of plumbers tape to get the fill probe and foster fitting adapter to seal correctly. The nylon insert did nothing to seal the air in, the plumbers tape did it all. The instruction manual is for the non-bull pup version so taking out some of the first stage trigger pull was not as listed. It required tightening the linkage nut a turn and a half to remove the uptake slop. The sear adjustment was as listed in the manual.

    What others should know:

    Gets 36 shots on full power at 30 FPE, mine likes 18.1g JSB pellets. Running 850 FPS. Accuracy is 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch for 12 shots at 25 yards. This gun is LOUD, and the SILENT in the title is misleading. Unless you have a big piece of property, this rifle will disturb neighbors. The rail if too low and even with high rings, you will have a hard time getting your eye relief comfortable. You need HIGH RINGS and a picatinny riser. High rings alone did not do the job for me. The combo of the riser and the high rings make cheek mounting and eye relief comfortable and repeatable.

    Things I liked:

    It's held up well for 2 years: Accurate with a wide variety of pellets/slugs and weights(see examples below). Valving seems very consistent out of the box following a predictable curve. the trigger can be set up pretty nice for a bullpup. Stock is comfortable and well balanced. These are all full power 10 shot groups over a chrono @ 1/2" or less at 25 yards: HN slug, 21gr, avg 789.7fps, spread 16fps, 29fpe. JSB Hades, 15.89gr, 897.67fps avg, spread 17fps, 28.4fpe. HN Crow Magnum 18.21gr, 826.4fps avg, spread 5fps, 27.6fpe.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's a little heavy. I'd like it 2 lbs lighter. It's loud, the factory should put the shroud to use for more than decoration. The factory burst disc on my rifle failed 2x well below 2900psi. After the second failure I made my own disc. No problems since.

    What others should know:

    Out of the box this is LOUD. There a several easy modifications to fix. Originally, I reversed the shroud, added a barrel shroud spacer (air stripper) with 1/2-20 UNF female threads and 4 new style factory Marauder Baffles and spring (all from Hill airguns). topping it all with a Donny FL Tanto and threaded adapter. The pellet slicing the air and target impact is the loudest thing any bystander hears. For the shooter, the hammer noise seems loud For those more budget and weight conscious, I recently purchased and tested a thread on device from Buck Rail. Their Benjamin Akela Suppressor is a direct to the end of the shroud and very effective.

    Things I liked:

    This is my second bullpup (I have the Benjamin Bulldog .357 - excellent rifle). The styling of the Kral Puncher Breaker .25 with the walnut stock is nice. The rifle has a natural feel when bringing it up to your shoulder to fire. Accuracy is excellent.

    Things I would have changed:

    The wood finish is sub-standard for the price of the rifle. Fit and finish are okay; however, there is not a protective coating of urethane on the wood like you would see on regular wood stock firearms. Additionally, the metal finish is a bit rough in some spots. The Puncher Breaker comes with a picatinny section along with ONE screw to mount on the forearm of the rifle. One screw is a problem, because no matter how much it is torqued down, the section will not stay in place. I had added a bipod to the rifle, but ended up dismounting it and removing the section because the rail kept twisting around. For those reasons a star was knocked off on "Value for money" and "Overall rating."

    What others should know:

    Overall, I am very happy with this purchase - it is a nice addition to my small arsenal.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    Mine seems to shoot really well 2800 back to 2000 psi.

    Things I liked:

    I purchased this rifle in 22 cal back in 2019. I haven't had the first problem with it since then. It is an outstanding rifle. Kral rifles are excellent in quality. I love the walnut stock and the side lever cocking action. This was my very first pcp rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing this rifle is great. And it is reliable.

    What others should know:

    Buy this rifle. You wont be sorry. I want one in 25 cal. But it might make you catch the bug where you want more. Since then I have purchased 13 other pcp rifles. So watch out. Lol !!

    Things I liked:

    I got the refurbes. in .22. At first I thought that it was new. The only thing that looked used was the mags & fill probe. The "o" rings were cut up and would not hold air. Can only shoot about 10 yards in my back yard so groups are one an top of the other.

    Things I would have changed:

    bspp connector to fill air tank. Make the supports for he picatinny scope rail fatter to allow for a fully shrouded barrel.

    What others should know:

    The sound level on my phone app. was 87 to 91. I removed the factory shroud and installed the Crosman NP214-001 Trail Baffle.With 2 different carbon fiber raped tubs. This brought my sound level down to 72 to 75 much quitter.

    Things I liked:

    Read a lot of reviews before buying. Some good and some bad. Came with a damaged barrel shroud and bad clip but Ruth had new ones out to me in 2 days. Excellence service.I had to buy high rings and a half inch riser to line up with my eye. I tried a couple different pellets, h&n, kodiaks and crow magnums but none would group under 3 inches at 25 yd. Then tried JSB exact King Diabolo 25.39 grains and they shot one hole groups. Now I am happy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Plastic cheek peace is a little tacky.

    What others should know:

    Nice gun for the money. Very accurate with the right pellet.

    Nice compact no recoil gun! Bolt handle looks strong enough shouldn't break from use. Like some guns.

    Things I would have changed:

    1st You need to remove the word silent from the title. 2nd Why have you not advanced above fill probes and O-rings (dam leaks) and put 1/4" male quick fit in??? 3rd The gun was machine shop dirty and I mean dirty. 4th it leaks.

    What others should know:

    It's heavy, but ok for me.

    Things I liked:

    Very nice. Haven't had alot of time to test it out too much and am living at a new house so not set up great either, but it looks like at 50 yds shooting ragged holes. very happy with it. Anxious to expand my testing of this rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    One of the clips did not work. Eventually found that it has some mold parting line burrs that drag on the inside surface. I should not have to fix these things but rather some additional tlc deburr of parts would save alot of patron headaches.

    What others should know:

    Rifle is very robust. Love the stock even though heavy. Pump system works good but all connections must be tight. also it is easy to damage o'rings which will also not allow it to fill. Read and follow instructions. Important to release air in pump line via bleed before trying to disengage.

    Things I liked:

    I ordered My first Bull Pup, Karl puncher breaker silence. Boy that's a mouthful, but regardless of the name, I enjoyed shooting this air rifle. Eliminating all kinds of pests on my property. Well this was about my 3rd week with my new toy. While doing my usual target practice, breaking in the rifle, making sure nothing goes wrong within my return 30 day period It seemed that when I went to shot it. Sounded like it blew a gasket. All I know that when I Press the trigger. it will sound like a machine gun. Except that it wasn't shooting any longer. Air was escaping from somewhere around the breach area. I called PYRAMYD AIR Support and shot it while the technical support lady was on the phone and just just told me, just send it back in. But I love the accuracy & compact size. so I'm going to return it back for a even exchange I'm going to give it another shot, hopefully this time it will give me a few years of enjoyment.

    Things I would have changed:

    I dont like the type of style magazine they use. One of the magazine that came with my rifle was defective kept jamming up my rifle. I called PYRAMYD AIR and they were willing to send me a replacement free of charge. ((Awesome)). And thats pretty much itnno

    Things I liked:

    Gun is very accurate at short distance, have not tried longer. Cocking lever is smooth. Bullpup design takes some getting used to.

    Things I would have changed:

    Plan on buying a riser mount to get scope high enough for comfortable sighting. Moving the cocking lever forward would help but it is so smooth its manageable.

    What others should know:

    I would suggest trying one out if possible before buying, totally different feel from standard rifle design.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like the side lever to be moved forward over the pistol grip. I would like the fore stock to be slimmed down, lightened up. I would like the butt stock to be 2" longer.

    What others should know:

    I suggest, if the mounting rings are purchased separately from a scope, that the tallest scope rings be used to raise the scope height. I added a 3/4" riser to the picatinny rail to elevate the rings that came with the scope I purchased. I find it quicker and easier to sight through the scope. It also increases the range of the second zero point.
