Have been looking around at the options. EDgun still at top of list. No power wheel on Wildcat is a factor. FX Bobcat not appealing. Repair issues with FX more than EDgun? Or is it just sheer numbers sold that makes it look like FX is more flouncy. Dreamline in bullpup would have cocking lever aft?

Checked out Vulcan2; nice. Watched (Arabic?) videos to get a sense of internals and design. Wish more info was out there. 

Love the way the Huben K1 was taken apart and discussed at length. A compact .25 in that might contend, but a lot of 'ifs, ands, and buts' going on there. 

Are alternative pellets polarizing with many shooters? No doubt lead is superior in basically every way. Might a longer lightweight pellet be more accurate, more aerodynamic, better sectional density? Yes, I am a newcomer to this, with enough personal knowledge to look even more foolish than your average noob.

Haven't researched with maximum effort yet, but would like to understand dynamics of pellet weight, barrel length and efficiency. In the more powerful air rifles, a longer barrel uses a given quantity of compressed air more efficiently, right? Is that less of a factor with lighter pellets tuned for accuracy, or are longer barrels better there as well, in terms of efficiency and effectiveness?
