    wow.  that is the ugliest gun I’ve ever seen.  

    The coloring on the stock is ridiculous…   And the square barrel looks so strange!

    BUT.    The technical improvements look great.   Love the magazine holder.  Love the forward grip. Love the high capacity magazine.

    Not bad , not as pleasing as the original. The high capacity  mags & storage are nice.  I love my old one , it is the most accurate PCP I own. Other than replacing an o-ring & a broken linkage rod, the gun has been nearly flawless. I always say the Hummingbird would be the last PCP I would ever depart with.  Anxious to see this new model  in action.

    The color scheme is kind of weird… but other than that, I kind of like it!

    It looks like the butt stock and grip are a little small but otherwise I like it,
    my translator isn’t working…does this model have the functioning semi auto?

    If they would enlarge the blade grass pattern on the stock It would be more pleasing. Reminds me of a duck hunters camo.
    Overall, I like the styling of the rifle.

    That’s just one of the camo patterns they have, I’m pretty sure they will have more options to choose from or may be just a plain wooden stock, the question is if the gun has a really working semi auto action,  I like it!

    Neat. I always wanted a semi-auto hummingbird. Hope they worked out the kinks.

    No Michael, mine isn’t shooting semi-auto. I actually prefer it not to shoot semi-auto. I’d really be wasting pellets then 😉 LOL

    I was thinking lately that I don’t need to be buying any new air guns for a long time. I had my needs pretty well covered and there was nothing coming out that was particularly exciting to me and then, in the last week…. why are they doing this to us?  I need to start selling the old guns so I can buy some of these new ones!

    Am I being too optimistic to think that Kalibrgun would have learnt their lessons in design and quality control from the first Colibri so the new one will be flawless out of the box? I mean, they wouldn’t do that again right? 

    My Cricket has brought me so much joy that I think I could be persuaded to give a new (and working) Colibri a second chance.

    My original one is the most natural & accurate shootin piece I have or ever owned.  It is so comfortable topped with the MTC Connect, the little hummer seems like part of me.  I have a FX Wildcat and while I really like it , it just does not have the perfect fit for me like the Colibri.  I really don’t need another Colibri, but if the new one has the semi-auto worked out, I will get one for the fun factor.  I can always can always go to cheap whiskey and machine rolled cigars  to save money for more pellets & Nitrogen,LOL…

    Have to say, no matter the improvements, my Ernest Rowe tuned Colibri w Hawke Sidewinder 6.5×20 half mildot is an absolute pleasure to shoot. Had it out whacking starlings 20 minutes ago and head shots are the norm at 30-50 yds. It doesn’t miss unless I screw up. I can tell you, it’s a dream to own this amazing gun! The whack of the pellet is louder than the shot. I wonder if the new one will be as quiet.

    Agree, with Jacklegs & CampFussell.  These things just seem to shoot themselves.  Mine seems to shoot the 16 grain best, even @ 950 fps.  My other rifles cant group well at these speeds, not sure why or how that is. In everything else I use 18 jsbs.
