Evanix Rainstorm II PCP Air Rifle
The Rainstorm II rifle uses the the same circular clip as the Evanix Speed and Conquest air rifles and the Max bullpup.
Single-shot rifles are fun and have their place, but if you like to hunt...a repeater definitely has its advantages. Quick followup shots are nice to have without requiring you to open a pellet tin, pull out a round, close the tin, and then cock and load your rifle. How much better is it to have extra rounds waiting so you can dispatch animals quickly?
Hunting small game such as cottontails, squirrels, rats, mice, nutria (coypu) and pest birds means you're often faced with more than one critter. Having several shots available from your Rainstorm II will go a long way toward eradicating groups of pesky, destructive varmints!

Things I liked: Everything about it.
Things I would have changed: None
What others should know: Very light weight and smooth side lever action.
Things I liked: Have had the Rainstorm II a couple of months now, and the accuracy continues to empress. At first, the .25 JSB's were the most accurate. coming n at 996 fps from the factory. The 34 Gr were accurate, but not nearly as accuate. Now two months in, I have adjusted the speed, and polished the bore. What was a 1/2" gun at 30 yards, is now a tight one hole ag. 50 yards, under 1/2", an 76 yards many groups 1/2 to only slightly more. Odd thin is, this is all with the now more accurate 34 Gr JSB's. In the Texas wind, they perform vastly better than the 25 gr, as would be expected with the Higher BC. Gun is light, handy, and the fit and finish is far beyond the price range. You could not give me an FX Royan for this gun. It is that good. Period. It was very loud out of the box. I put a very well made DonnyFl Shogun LDC on it, and wow! very quiet indeed. Hammer slap is louder than the report. I kid you not! New style mag. is very reliable. Much like a DayState mag from the Airwolf
Things I would have changed: Make the thumb hole stock more available again.
What others should know: Got in a Hatsan Nova in .25 first. Not even in the same universe in fit finish, precision, and power and accuracy as the Rainstorm II. One a very rough action, one unbelievably silky smooth. One is more like a 400. usd airgun, the other more like a 1500 usd airgun. LOL!!! No comparison what so ever! Pyramyd air was very helpful. The Air Venturi department there was outstanding.
Things I liked: The gun is accurate. I mean it *is* accurate. I scoped mine with a high power scope. 100 yard shots are a breeze. Side Cock is nice.
Things I would have changed: A little more consistency in FPS. I bought the 25Cal. Also, a better way to know how many pellets you have left in your round clip. Yeah, it is a 10 round "Round" clip, but you can't see the last 3 or so shots. . they are hidden. I would also like to have some kind of sling too. The gun has no sling, and it is almost a must when carrying this rifle.
What others should know: Scope it with a GOOD powerful scope. I would suggest over scoping it. As silly as it sounds, this gun is nice and accurate. There is absolutely no Kick at all. Loudness. . .Folks. . .this gun is LOUDER than my Remington 22. . . and I mean it is loud. I highly suggest purchasing a spinning target with a reset. Without the reset, you will be walking 75 yards many times to reset your targets. I get about 30 shots per fill in the green zone. (I haven't counted it, but I go through about 3 round clips before pumping the pressure back up. I also noticed on mine, when the pressure was at the top (200), my accuracy was not as good. But as soon as it dropped to about 180 to 190, everything was dead on. I have had it for about 1 year now.

I'm ready to buy my first Big-Bore air rifle for deer hunting. Currently, I've narrowed it down to the Evanix Rainstorm II in .357, or the Winchester 70 in .357 or .45. Opinions? Compare and contrast?
Lots of options. I'm partial to the Airforce airguns both for power and accuracy, but there aren't many options with multi-shot capability. Really depends on how big that feature is to you. I'd take a Texan any day of the week, whether it's an SS or a Carbine or standard model, that would be my go to.
Thanks, Tyler, but since I'm the one doing the narrowing, I might have missed something. Do you have other recommendations for airgun deerhunting besides the Winchester?
Aside from the name and stock differences, not a whole lot. They are both made by Evanix, and are very similar in size and function. I would tell you to lean towards the .45 though, purely for the extra knock down power.
Does this gun have silener built it or is it to lound for bark yard use??
The barrel is fully shrouded, the small bore calibers .22 and .25 are not too bad, but do bark a bit.
What pellet weight is the .25 cal that is used for the 910 ft per second?
Typically the 19 grain HN Field Target Trophy are used for most tests
