I’ve been thinking about how to actually make a big bore springer for a while now. Hatsan pretty much just showed us how far their power plants can be stretched and I don’t know of a more powerful production springer off the top of my head. So i guess the next step is to put another power plant in the rifle. And they just did that with their Hercules! The trick will be how to get 2 power plants to work together effectively and not destroy anything associated with/the rifle.

The other thing that I just thought about is barrel length, as in -> what truly is the “best” barrel length? What is the ideal length for velocity?
What is the length for best accuracy?
And how long is too long for practical uses?
