    Finally after a lot of trading and trying I found (yet another) air rifle that will not be leaving me anytime soon.
    At first glance I was a bit sceptic about the “older” mechanics of the Falcon but after shooting it for a bit i was sold.
    Was shooting 8shot groups pellet on pellet at 30 yards outside in no time.
    Can’t wait to get it out to a longer range but it sure has my vote. :)

    some eye candy ;)

    Nice!  ““older” mechanics ”  like an old jeweled watch , Falcon made  outstanding rifle’s and pistols. Personally I really like them when they were Titan ( then Beeman for 2 years) but up until the most modern – quality seemed to change at the very end-  ones the quality was outstanding, cant tell if yours has the “match” trigger – ball bearing sear- or not but darn fine triggers , fit & finish.  That rifle should hold it’s own against anything made today. Just my opinion but their MPT model was what all bull-pups which they could be.
     Just one question, have you ever tried their pistols?  LOL,  you “need” one of those old things also.
    Thanks for sharing and keep us updated after you’ve had a chance to use it a bit.

    No I don’t have one of their pistols (yet).
    The bolt ran a bit rough at the beginnen but a bit of silicone grease cleared it right up :)
    now it runs like clockwork!
    Still playing around a bit with pellet head sizes and velocities but I truly am amazed by this rifle and it outperforms me time and time again.
    I have it here sitting on the mantle and I keep getting hypnotized as it were by the beautiful crafted stock and the brass fitting rings :)
    will definetly post a group or 2 after I find the right pellet etc :)

    After a much needed trigger job from Ernie Olsen my Falcon Prairie Lighthunter will never leave the coop.

    I picked up a .177 and .22 this fall. Just got them back having them tuned and regulators put in by AZ. They are amazingly accurate! too bad they are not still being made.
