    We waited so long for the Hammer that I don't think many will buy it now? I wonder why it took so long and because it did, I have a hard time believing that why they didn't launch it on time may still be an issue? I think perhaps Boeing will have a better chance of selling its 737 aircraft than Umarex will selling this problematic airgun? Once, I would have stepped up and been one of the first buyers, but not now. I'll wait and see if my concerns are warranted? Might as well? The thrill is gone!

    I just got off the line with Travis at JSAR after asking a group of questions to him regarding the Raptor. I'm seriously considering ordering one in the next few weeks. He's a nice guy and took the time to answer everything I had to question. It's always nice to get a discount and free shipping whenever I can, and being a veteran, which I am, pays off at JSAR in that respect!

    As long as we're talking about the Raptor, I wonder if anyone reading this has one and can offer his opinion of the product, the build quality, and the service at JSAR?

    Here's a good review by Steve from 2016.

    I don't know if the gun was always regulated, thus back then perhaps the gun he used in the test was not although he does mention 135 Bar and that the gun on high power delivers 120 usable shots.

    That to me indicates a regulated gun at 135 Bar.

    I hope you can find what you're looking for?

    Yes, I have one, but it is still NIB and I have never shot it, so I can't tell you anything about its performance levels.

    Hatsan Galatian Tact Auto (870 fps) – .25 cal. – sn: 0718 xxxxx – PCP – black synthetic stock w/3 mags, sling, bipod, hard case – $669.99

    Sorry, I can't be any more help to you except for your moral assurance that you did not buy the only one sold! lol

    For a more satisfying shooting experience I always try to have enough magazines, for every gun I own, to be able to shoot the gun's particular optimum string without having to stop shooting to reload the magazine that came with the gun, again and again. For example: If the optimum number of shots that my gun will shoot on one fill is 36, and the magazine takes 12 pellets, I would require 3 magazines. 36 / 12 = 3

    My rationale is that since I must stop shooting because I would need to refill the cylinder with air after 36 shots, I might as well reload my magazines at that time too. If I only had one magazine, I would have to stop shooting every time I shot 12 pellets, although I would still have ample air to continue shooting at least two more magazines if I had them.

    Another reason to have extra magazines (at least one more) is that should you misplace, break, or lose, the one that comes with your gun, you would have another one as a spare. If not, then you would have to hand feed single shot until you found a replacement – IF you could find one?

    Welcome, Jefferson!

    Looking forward to placing an order with you soon!

    You seem to have my taste in airguns, in both style and functionality?

    Never take shortcuts or lessen your quality as a trade-off for a larger profit margin.

    Merchants, entrepreneurs, and fast buck artists abound in this industry, but true artisans are hard to find.

    Always be proud of your products – each and every individual one that you sell!

    Your clientele will know the difference that you offer compared to the rest of your competition.

    Integrity is the essence of man!

    Older shooters need a caliber that allows for easier loading. That means a pellet that is easy to recognize the front from the back, and which is easy to hold and feed into the gun. This isn't so important when using magazine fed guns, as magazines are loaded at leisure, but it is mandatory when loading single shot airguns! For me, it means using a .25 caliber pellet as my mainstay, for meeting those requirements as well as being fairly economical.

    I've purchased at least two Weirauch air rifles from PA in the past and both came to me in "as new" condition. I believe that they were returned due to buyer's remorse and not for reasons of requiring repair or refurbishment. Weirauch's are not inexpensive guns but being springers, in a world of springers and gas piston single shot rifles, I can see why someone might have second thoughts about keeping them and return them for say a much cheaper Hatsan. I can only say that I never expected faulty manufacture of Weirauch (also sold under the Beeman brand) break barrelled guns, as they are fine examples of European workmanship! Highly likely buyers remorse guns, and seemingly so when they arrived. I took the refurbished discount, still paying more than brand new rifles of lesser quality, and never looked back!

    My thoughts on reburbs are that the more you pay for the inherent quality associated in a name, the better your chances of obtaining a real "keeper" at a bargain price! It is far more likely that the former owner took good care of his gun, because he paid big money for it before sending it back for some unknown reason, which in the case of PA they take guns back for any reason, not just faulty merchandise?

    Seldom do you find refurbished high-end guns for sale very long at PA, and almost never anywhere else! They are few and far between. Far more often you find the lower quality, cheaper, refurbished guns in greater quantities that were returns due to bad design, poor manufacturing, bad QC, or misuse by beginners. Companies actually make large purchases of these refurbed junkers and often don't give them much better refurbishment than they originally got when they were brand new! I won't name names, but many of you know the dealers of whom I speak.

    Go to the AOA website and you will see a large number of FX airguns "on sale" at discounted prices. This could indicate a soft sell out of FX stock.

    I think that the reason they have quite a few complaints is that they sell quite a few airguns!

    I don't know for sure, but I think they offer more varieties of airguns than any other manufacturer?

    I'm with you on the weight issue, but I believe they have awakened to our criticism and are seeking ways to eliminate weight whenever possible?

    In the same breath, they are producing some wood stocked versions of a lot of their previous synthetic entries, and wood does add weight?
