Shroud, wood stock (fat and a little ugly, but still wood),and mulit-shot in the same price range.

I have one in 22 and it's more accurate than my Marauder, it's a good length and after installing some sling studs its a great rifle in the field. I get 20 shots at around 40fpe with jsb Monsters.

The reason that they aren't as popular is probably because the trigger isn't as refined as other guns wich is something many on here stress over, and the fact that it is pretty loud without an ldc. IMO the stock fits nicer, it shoots harder, is much less pellet fussy, and is just as or more accurate than the marauder in 22. At 300 dollars with a scope it's really a great deal!

They are definitely not as refined as other more expensive guns, but you definitely get a lot for the price! The stock is comfortable and durable with an adjustable butt pad. With a little trigger work they shoot just fine! My .177 launches JSB Heavies at 955fps avg for 30 shots, and groups well under a dime at 33 yards. I have well over 3000 rounds through mine with ZERO problems. Got to be one of the very best buys out there!

I been eyeing the pneuma and the halestorm for some time now, Where did you get the ldc and does it quiet it down any?

..is still well over $250... but in the ball park at 325-340 (and that will go lower with time). Was thinking new-to-new price.

Do remember the Pneuma being sold for about $300 (new) at one point (Randy?). $250 is a reasonable price for a used $300 gun.

I have had 7 or 8 FX rifles, a couple of Steyrs, Logun pro mk2, etc...
All great accuracy, but my best group shot at 50 meters (55Y) with any air rifle is c-c 3.4mm (0,133"), shot with JSB Exact King and Hatsan AT-44 long 6,35mm....Thats the Hatsan AT-44 (Hammerli pneuma)version with longer air cylinder and a longer barrel made by Lothar Walther.



c-c 3,4mm



And the group compared with a JSB King....



But that 3,4mm group was just pure luck I guess.
Here is 9 typical groups from 50 meter...


Some 100m (109y) groups...




I get about 18-20 shots from one fill, with JSB King 25,4gr @ 289-295 m/s(950-970 fps)

But they will probably be priced higher. I am not sure if the HaleStorms will have the Quattro since they are not imported by Hammerli. Something to think about. I like that long airtube and barrel !!!!
