    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…

    I shoot these out of my Kral NP03.  That rifle has a short barrel and is very accurate in the 820ish range.  My FX dreamline shoots them well around 880. Let the fun begin!!!

    Very nice gun!   Also do love the 177 cal and feel it has its place among all the different calibers.  When your shooting, pesting or hunting in open areas its nice to have some of the larger calibers for the extra knock down power if needed.  Most of my shooting, pesting is done around my house.  Even though in my neighborhood everyone is on one acre I use my 177 Dar or Maverick for most of my pesting needs. Love the gun and congrats!

    As a first PCP I would probably go with the DAR gen2 if you like that traditional style gun.  I have one in .177 cal and I can shoot 1/2 groups with the occasional flyer at 50yrds with the FX 13gr pellets.  I've had the Avenger in .22 and even though it was a good gun I think my Dar is of better quality.  I had a Hatsan flashpup in .22 and that was a very reliable and easy to work on gun!

    If you want something done right you need to do it yourself!  Sad but true these days.  I've shipped a number of guns back for repair or because I've sold them but I always package myself.  I always add a flash card in the box with the rifle with my phone number, address and order number if I have one.  I've only used UPS and never any problems yet!  I do declare it as a pellet gun when asked.  Good luck!

    New here to AG Nation.  I can see having a post quantity before posting or replying to adds in the classifieds is extremely helpful.  Not sure how many I will need to post before I can start buying things I shouldn't!  :)
