    Thanks guys! I did use services and not FF. I'll be contacting PP today and will let you guys know how this turns out.  I noticed that he only had a few posts and should have trusted my gut. But nooooo, had to have it….. Just wanted to let everyone know to be careful. I do agree that people should have a few posts before they could access the classifieds.

    That rifle looks beefy! Nothing dainty about that.  I've never owned a Cricket rifle before but after seeing this one that my change!

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. Does anyone know if they have updated in anything on the rifle?

    Maybe so.  Would that mean we should expect this increase to hit all manufacturers across the board. I thought maybe they have added something to the 2022 models but possibly just inflation…

    Nice looking rifle. I was wondering where Diana went???  I'm more of a bullpup type of shooter and would love to see that green in a bullpup stock.  I also like the manometer that can be viewed in the shooting position! Cool looking gun but very interested to see where she falls in pricing…

    I have 2 Mavericks and I shoot them down to my second reg, the shooting pressure reg not the bottle reg. So if my bottle reg is at 140bar and my second reg is at 110bar I will fill back up when I start to dip below the 110bar mark. Hope this helps!

    Darylm is right on the Brothers in Air you tube channel. He does a lot with the Flash pup but I would imagine its about the same as the Flash. I Installed a huma reg in my Flash pup and wasn't difficult at all. Just take your time and follow the instructions provided with the reg or follow along with the Brothers in Air vid!

    I have wondered that myself.  I had a Condor 25 which was a great gun and fun to shoot. I almost didn't buy it because it was a single shot.  After shooting for a while I really enjoyed the simplicity of the single shot.  When shooting at home from the bench I will often use the single shot tray instead of the mags in my other rifles.  As I and others do enjoy the single shot method of the air force guns, I would imagine there is a whole lot of people who pass them up just based on that alone.

    I always call FX USA in the morning and 9 out of 10 they answer the phone.  If you haven't found what you need by tomorrow let me know and I'll pull the one I have on my dreamline and measure it for you.

    I have a Kral NP03 in 22 and is an great gun for the $! Its very accurate, compact and light. Like others have said you can get parts for them.  If you can't find them through one of the big air gun stores you can hit up Troy Hammer he could get any part you'll need. If you want to get into learning how to tune a gun with a regulator then the Avenger hands down would be the way to go. Place your preorder for a Avenger bullpup and Im sure you'll enjoy that one as well.  So many guns, so little time 😁 Good luck!!!

    I have a Maverick .25 and a .22. The .22 started as a .177 but wasn't super happy with the performance of the .177 so I converted it to a .22.  Both the 25 and the 22 are extremely accurate with pellets.  I shoot the 33gr 920fps with the 25 and the 25gr 900fps with the 22. I have tried some slugs, but I think I will need to get the heavy liner to get the accuracy I'm looking for! Are you guys using the light or heavy liner?

    I own 2 Krals and really enjoy shooting them just as much as my FX and Brocock rifles. Are they of the same quality? No but it all depends on what your doing with them. Doing a little pesting, hunting or plinking they work just fine. I have a Kral NP03 .22 and shoots just as well as my Dreamline out to 50yards. Don't get me wrong, I do love my " higher end " guns, but by no means does someone need to spend $1000 plus to have fun in this great sport/hobby! I also have a Kral Jumbo Dazzle that's a tack driver and loves slugs??? I do think you get a great rifle for the $$$$$ spent. I've also had good luck with the Hatsan line of PCP's.  Just my 2 cents!!!!

    Really like the Desert color and the look of the tube gun over the bottle.  That would make the perfect pesting gun around my house!

    Will definitely need some adjustable rings but nothing I haven't had to do before and definitely not a deal breaker…

    Always wondered when they would bring out a bullpup version!  Not sure how I feel about that stock or the pic rail that high above the barrel. If it shoots anything like the original version I'm sure they'll sell a bunch and a great platform to learn and enjoy tuning without breaking the bank!!!

    Steve, I really love the BP platform as its very comfortable to me.  I have owned lower budget Hatsan to FX and have really enjoyed them all. Yes the higher end guns are just more refined but that's not to say the lower to mid range aren't good. My Hatsan Flash pup was a great gun to start and I don't regret that purchase. I learned how to tune, take apart and reseal a air gun. I also installed my first regulator on that rifle.  In my opinion its a lot less nerve racking taking apart a $300ish gun than a $1200 one!  With a little work most lower end guns can be improved quite a bit over stock. If your not one to tinker than I would say go for a mid to higher end as you would probably be happier. Just remember that if you don't care for which ever you get you can always sell on the classifieds and jump into something else! Good luck…

    Just got off AOA site and they still have the .25cal compact in stock @ $1795.00  Don't know what the shipping would be.  Great looking little gun, may need to stop by AOA and take a few shots with it.  Looks like it would be the perfect size pesting gun around my house.

    Great looking gun! Have been very interested how they perform especially with that shorter barrel.  Looking forward to your input after you get some trigger time!!!

    I purchased 2 of them. Haven't tried the 700mm .22 yet but my 500mm .177 won't fit as it won't get passed the threads.  Ill try to sand and see if that works! Thanks everyone…
