    appears to be standard paint ball tank they are cheap ,,,,,and Catalina makes a 22 CI (360CC) about $55 ….13  CI tank are cheap and plentiful 

    all regs are adjustable when taken apart its just not externally adjustable on the rifle while under pressure,  Name a few at any price that the REG is adjustable while on rifle and charged.  Adjustable transfer ports yes common regulators externally adjustable while charged ???  Please name a one for me at any price point  ??   

    Guys this is a $299 rifle if they used quality sourced barrels I can think of a few rifle brands that are so SUNK

    Why talking about 3 phase it is standard 220VAC ya can find in any house

    The Compressor comes complete, tested full of oil and ready to run. They come with plug, cord and hour meter. 220v single phase. This compressor runs at 1100 RPM and has over 50 feet of Stainless Steel cooling coils. “

    into your house in a hot a neutral and a hot …from either hot to neutral is 120….across the two hots ya get 220 no three phase commercial power needed 

    So its just as easy to use as the other compressors at home

    “APerfectMiss”I was notified by precision that the next order is due to show up sometime this month. They have not received any information in regards to the quantities of what calibers and or colors. They appreciate everyone’s patience with the preordered impacts. Craig and Nancy are top notch on customer service. 

    – Mike 

    
Precision are just resellers for AOA. In the event that there is an issue with an FX or Cricket you buy from them and you need to use your warranty, they will just direct you to AOA. As nice as Craig and Nancy may be, they can’t or won’t do anything to help with any issues on those guns. 

    My Cricket arrived with a horrible scratch on the anodized metal from them. AOA said cosmetic damage is “normal” on their guns so Nancy wouldn’t help me with it. I had to go directly to Kalibrgun myself to get a replacement part. Luckily for me, Kalibrgun stood behind their product although it took forever.

    I have an indexing issue now on that Cricket and I am  very nervous about sending my air rifle to AOA given that my transaction was with Precision. If AOA can’t fix it or damage it, it’s not like they are going to give me a refund (even though it’s under warranty) as I bought it from Precision).

    There is literally no point in ordering from Precision. They just pass your order on to AOA who are the worst vendor in the world. As much as AOA suck, you are still marginally better off than you would going through Precision. I specifically bought from Precision to avoid having to deal with AOA and I got stuck dealing with them anyway….

    I believe that WildWest import and distribute some brands so they are a genuine alternative to AOA. I think Kalibrgun is one of those brands. I hear they have better service but they are also more expensive. I might have paid the extra had I known though. I believe AOA is the only distributor for FX in North America so no point in buying from anyone else unfortunately.

    There is only one air gun vendor that actually has good after-sales service when you have an issue and that is Pyramyd Air. They return all guns no questions asked, even if they have no issues. If there is an issue, they pay for return shipping and immediately dispatch a replacement. AOA and their henchman (like Precision) make you pay to ship back the broken air rifle they sent you and it takes an eternity to get anything resolved. It’s just a shame that PA don’t stock any of the decent brands so we have to deal with those snake charmers.

     

     

    
How about StraightShooters. Are they also got FX from AOA? 

    
I thought straight shooters and precision were the same company. Some of my documentation from Precision was labelled Straight Shooters.  I never asked about the relationship. I just assumed one was the holding company.
     

    
JIm and Nancy have nothing to do with another dealer.  If you received a rifle via them and it listed another dealer on some kind of papers(other than the importer AOA)  my guess AOA “ACCIDENTLY” mixed up a returned from Straight Shooters that was repaired as a NIB …has happened in past quite common mix up at the importer

    “Lou”Looks like a cheaper version of the HW100, would not expect this from Weihrauch, I expected their second pcp to be innovative or at least bring some things that the HW100 did not have.  

    
not sure other than the black coloring on stock the rest looks just as expensive to do or more expensive  to execute I don’t see it being a cheaper version but an update of a design that was getting old.  Full shroud would have been on my short list of features though but I just like the look versus something hanging on end 

    Now if they would carry the Weaver style rails over to the spring rifle line where they are actually needed to stop slipping ….

    Still leaps and bounds more STYLISH  and CLASSY than an FX design

    I respect what you know and totally agree ATF should be aisles at Wal Mart not a government agency 

    Problem with our legal system is each district can make rulings :( until the Supreme Court rules its not country wide and expensive to prove it out in a new district …It sucks 

    all it takes is one ATF or LE type worker to decide to pursue it even if they are totally wrong and major hassle 

    would be great if a national Air rifle company would start to market versions and settle this once and for all country wide

    “I_Like_Irons”

    “amoxom”So most suppressors for powder burners are threaded for 1/2″ UNF with 28tpi thread as standard for most rimfire and 5.56mm center fire suppressor fittings. For larger calibers, threads go from 5/8″ UNF and 28tpi threads.

    Most air rifle manufacturers use a 1/2″ UNF with 20tpi threads as standard. That means they should not fit each other by these specifications.

    Am I missing something??
     

    
Yes.  One can easily thread a barrel for any thread form you want.  In fact, there are some quick detachable suppressors that have unusual multi-pitch thread forms.  The muzzle is either threaded to accommodate or an adapter is made.  Plus, it is not hard to make an adapter either.  The ATF has it’s opinion published, and that essentially becomes the rule of law. 

    The mere fact that it is threaded for attachment to the muzzle, means to the ATF, that it can be attached to a firearm as well.  The ATF has also ruled that even if the thing cannot withstand the pressures of a firearm, if it reduces the sound for even one shot, it is a silencer and thus falls under the NFA (National Firearms Act). 

    
That last section of the ATF viewpoint:

    if it reduces the sound for even one shot, it is a silencer and thus falls under the NFA (National Firearms Act). 

    remember they have unlimited resources for lawyers if they decide to go after somebody

    that said their view would include many things like plastic soda bottles, oil filters, potatoes , pillows rolled up carpet etc etc if they want to push it if they can show you had intent to use it as a NFA item ur screwed ….actually even if you fight it and win ur screwed as it will cost you a stack of cash to fight it 

    I would love to see if Crosman or anybody else got a legal opinion from BATF b4 the built rifles like the Marauder …..I just dont see a company proceeding with production and sales if they didn’t have it in writing that the design was totally legal

    If I am not mistaken unless PA gets them there will not be a trustworthy,  fair, or  ethical dealer to buy these from in US market 

    Too bad as I sorta like the package
