The gun must have each of the following except caliber can be changed

Weigh under 6#

Shoot clover leaf groups @45 yards

.177 caliber preferred

Measure 34 inches or less from muzzle to butt

MUST HAVE REMOVABLE AIR TANKS

Use low pressure, 2000 PSI preferred

Average at least 40 good shots using 7.9 gr pellets @ around 650 FPS

Shrouded barrel

I have a gun that does all of the above, but need to find another because the one I currently own is no longer in production.

Thanks!

a tuned Talon SS. Unless you're willing to spend $1500+ then some FX guns or Evanix will work too.

a Talon SS. Probably the closest you'll come to what you want.

I hand pump.
The gun I have now uses front mounted tanks which are small, but keep weight and size down.

Also it allows the gun to have a nice stock

Could adjust it to work at 2K, but considering the size of the air tube (122cc) pumping it to 2500 isn't a problem. Air tube removes on the gauged version. Even at 7 1/2 foot pounds and 2K fill, think you'll find your 40 shots inside of a tight spread (and may find 50 shots).

Using such little "blips" of air, an LDC really does do the job...and with the option of taking it off and not looking like a skeleton (which most shrouded guns look if circumstances require removal of the shroud).

This is my .177 Fx S/T barrel Ranchero in a carbine stock that I bought from AOA. This gun is dead accuracte out 50 yards. Vey light, short,
With 3 power level settings for all kinds of shooting, plinking or hunting. Just a great little gun....




Be carefull kid or you'll shoot your eye out....

I can resist anything, but temptation

It is a very nice compact rifle that shoot super and has the three tanks.
The gun is set up to run at 2K PSI and I shoot the tanks down to about 1200.

The Beeman SS-2L fits nice on the weaver mount and it all fits in a take down shotgun case. Great set up...just really on the fence about letting her go...

such a secret? Perhaps you should just get another one on the used market, since you didn't state if you had to have a new rifle.

You will see why so many here do not like the gun.

Yes some lost money, but this thing is super and I don't know of another gun that has the same options as this one here.

You can't just put an ad up for another one as there most likely is less than 20 guns total in the US and none have the same set up as the one I have.

I have been talking to some about copying it...but it would end up with a plastic stock and retail over $800.00 I don't see a market strong enough to justify doing it.
