    Some magazine o-rings are too tight.  I had s batch like this.  Happen more often I  cold weather.  Stretch the o-ring or but one a hair bigger.  Or, save this magazine for slugs because the extra tention really helps slugs stay snug.

    This is amazing power!  What type of thing did you have to do internally to get that?

    I always thought Hatsans were good slug candidates.

    It's too bad they let all their competitors (AirForce and Hatsan) catch up.  I wonder how much besides price has changed?  Is it regulated?  I'd rather have two perfectly the same unregulated shot than three regulated.  A 250 bar fill with two shots is better than a 300 bar with three shots. 

    You're kidding right? I can't speak for Hatsan, but there are videos on YouTube of guys shooting the Texan back in 2017. The Hammer hadn't even been leaked out in 2017. The Texan was operational AND killing game then. Also, that Umarex isn't good for long range. The Texan's are excellent at 200+ yard shots. The only plus of the Umarex is it's regulated. There are aftermarket regs for the Texan, but AF has never regulated any of their rifles (which vexes the CRAP out of me since I own one). I own an aftermarket reg that works fine for what I use it for.

    I know guys like the Umarex Gauntlet because of the price point. But it's a $300 PCP that's manufactured in China. It probably cost Umarex $30 to manufacture. It has very loose tolerances and I don't think they will hold up long term like a higher end PCP will. I don't think the Hammer is any different. Within 50 yards, it's a pile driver. No question. But beyond that, I don't think you stand a chance. If most of your hunting is within 50 yards, you will probably he happy.

    But to say that Umarex let AF "catch up" is flat out wrong. It was Umarex that copied AF into the big bore world, as they saw the market and increased interest and popularity for the rifles.

    I'm talking about the Hammer being a 50cal with +700FPE and a Production air rifle.  The Hammer was supposed to be the first to do that!  It was not produced for several years like Umerex said it would be.  The reason was…hmm….not sure?  Now, Hatsan and AirForce both have a .50 and +700 FPE, production air rifle with even more impressive specs.  Unlike Umerex those companies will be more likely to deliver on time.  

    I'll be buying a .50 Texan before a .50cal Hammer now. So, I stand by my comments that Umerex screwed up and let their competition catch up.

    I think a Hades based on the .22 Monster Redesigns would be a big seller too.

    I got a Priest 2 in .25.  It is a great gun.  It is extremely accurate and as soon as the weather gets better I'll post long range groups with it.

    It's a growing sport.  Demand is high, prices reflect that.

    How does this work out mathematically? Once your bottle fill pressure goes below 300 bar, you ‘lose’ one regulated shot, but will still have 2 regulated shots vs. 2 unregulated shots.
    So how are the unregulated shots ‘better’ in your opinion. (I’m not claiming the regulated shots are better, but I don’t see them being worse either…) 

    Regulators cost $, they fail, they work differently with different temperatures.  I just think I would be better to have the gun unregulated tuned to have two shots the same, than regulated with three shots at 300 bar or two shot at 250bar.  I never understood why they wanted to regulate a gun with this much power.  You can only fill the gun to full 300bar one time.  I suppose if you really needed one extra shot for Hunting…

    Yea that Priest in FX stickers are ridiculous!  Just so everyone knows RTI was developing their rifle long before FX released the Impact.  The concept of a skeleton bullpup with a CF bottle was around before the Impact.   I tried to build one before I even before I head about the Impact. When bullpups started getting attention, the next logical step was to build them lighter and with a higher shot count. Boom-the impact was born.  Just because RTI's were out six months later, does not mean they are a copy.

    Trenier Outdoors in Sparta wi can hook you up. They have a range and a bunch of guns I'm sure they would let you try out.  I Live on the boarder of WI and MN and regularly make drives out there to shoot.  If you want to drive another hour into MN I have a 30fpe .22, a 60fpe .22, 50fpe .25, 150fpe .357 and a 300fpe .357.

    All skeleton bullpups with a bottle are going to look like an Impact.  A lot of guys from Asia build their own guns.  They are not able to buy their own, so they replicate the guns the rest of the world has.

    I've been happy with the my R5M, Lelya, Priest, Wildcat.  Content with my Ataman M2R and Gladius.  Not happy with the Bullboss and Bullmaster.  Hope this helps.

    What speed are you guys shooting the 110 NSA at?  I just got a Pittbull (souped up Bulldog) and was wondering what speed they will be shooting at.

    In my Priest (cz barrel)  they shoot just as good as 25 grain jsb Exacts.  I'm perplexed why others cant get them to shoot.

    Look at the things in front! Are they mags? Dual Mags? My interest is really peaked now.  Nobody start any rumors…but could it be semi auto? Electronic?  Huge power?  It;s definitely a bullpup.
