“Topcat”Nice are those cartridges a one shot deal? I don’t know about the oversized bolt handle but it looks nice. Can’t wait to read more


Yes they are (one shot). It is designed to be just like a firearm in how it operates except that the bullets are filled with air instead of powder.

The idea is that you can take as many shots out with you as you need. It makes sense in the context of other big bore air guns which get 2-10 shots per fill usually. If you can afford the cartridges, you could take 30 or 50 shots with you, which is a lot for a 357 air rifle. The new Evanix 9mm pistol carbine gets 4-6 shots per fill (if you don’t buy a second air cylinder). 

The bolt handle unscrews (it is shipped without it) so people can choose their own if they like. I have a feeling that the oversized one will be an advantage when cocking a short gun like this. The cocking effort is forward, not back like most bolt-action guns.
