“Nueces”This is a very cool design.  Not buying an airgun from Russia however.  I wish we had an American manufacturer ( or even an EU one ) making one like it.


What have you got against Russia? They make some of the best air guns. Edgun and Kalibrgun are both awesome brands and Ataman looks like they are going to be similarly awesome. 

I always say, never let politics get in the way of a good air gun! ok, ok…. I never said it before but it’s still good advice. 

 


It’s not politics.  It’s political stability and the supply chain.  I don’t see things getting better between our countries any time soon.  You could easily own a gun for which parts become unavailable.  Distribution could quickly become very problematical without warning.


I used to be worried about that too to be honest but then two things happened to change my mind: A manufacturer sent me a replacement part in the mail from Russia and it landed on my doorstep in NY in less than a week. Then Ernest machined a replacement valve stem for my Cricket which was significantly better than the original. 

I am no longer worried about being left with an air gun that can’t be fixed.

Btw I believe PA has the capability to manufacture hard to find or discontinued parts too.
