    When I first saw them for sale a while ago, I couldn’t think of any reason to buy one. 

    I’m not a fan of the stock design. I could see the wood version being particularly easy to break and not well balanced. Part of the job of the stock on traditional rifles is to provide some balance to the heavy barrel at the front. When you cut most of it away you get a front heavy rifle. 

    That aside, Daystate and Air Arms may not be regulated but they are established trusted brands which also use LW barrels. I’d take that over a no name brand that nobody knows much about except that they are unregulated. Trust is earned. 

    These rifles look a lot like the Brockcock guns to me. Some of their guns use a similar skeleton stock design. They also have LW barrels and no reg but they are good but cheaper. 

    I would wait until there are some credible user reviews before dropping $1100 on something that may or may not be worth it. Luckily for us, there is strong competition these days and a number of great options in that price range. Just using a LW barrel is not enough anymore.

    I’ve shot a .30 cal Jager. Balance on the rifle, is spot on, as it’s super light, 7-8 lbs scoped. You have to adjust the hammer spring down some as their running hot, 950-1000 fps out of the box with 44.75 gr jsb’s. Quiet, is a under statement. Accurate, once you detune her to around 890’s, she’s a tack driving machine. 150 yard tack driver if you can do your part on 2″ spinners. Fit and finish is on par with daystate as far as the beautiful wood stock on the rifle and, no, it’s not as fragile as you put it. You wouldn’t want to beat it up to begin with as the wood is that beautiful. I’ll post more when mine arrives Wednesday and I get a chance to really have more hands on. If my friend hadn’t took the plunge and bought one and I hadn’t shot it, I’d be like everyone else in this thread and worried about spending $1300 on a air rifle with little English reviews and talk about.

    I’ve shot the same Jager as Tony and it is addicting.  I shot a full magazine at 1×2″ k cups at 103 yards and not one miss.

    Agree totally with Tony, I have a Jäger.35XP tuned(from RL)  for 850 FPS avg for a dozen shots. Shoots 1 holers with New Predator Polymags at 30 yards no problem. Jäger has the Power, Accuracy and Quality you’d expect with a high end big-bore at a great price point. Bought some high quality CNC Alloy 6 round mags from the Russian supplier that really completes the package. Excellent lightweight rifle for hole punching or small/mid game hunting.
