    I finally was able to track down a stock for my .177 Falcon. I have sent the Cabines up to Alan Zasadny and had them tuned and regulators put on. All three are shooting great for 12-14 FPE guns. If I could hold my hand a little steady, I think the pistol is the most accurate. Different and fun guns to shoot.

    Thanks Guys, It really is fun to shoot these Sub 20 FPE rifles. Makes you appreciate what the European boys deal with. Hope this helps playing the wind in the finals at extreme benchrest LOL! These are not the Titanium. I believe the titanium tube was on the Prairie Falcon.

    I knew there was something with the name falcon with titanium….

    Either way, they’re nice looking air guns? The stock design really works.

    Why do you keep them sub 20fpe? Do you compete in FT events with them?

    They are British rifles and were designed that way. Not sure of the age of these rifles but they were designed before the carbon fiber tank. Their air tubes are quite small so I only get about 25-30 shots as it is ( the pistol about 20). I discussed the rebuild with Alan and decided to put them back to the way they were originally designed. I actually shot a 1/2 in group yesterday witht the .177 and had 3 others going except for 1 shot. The pistol blows my mind every time I shoot it. I need to lighten the trigger but it is fussy so I have let it alone for now. I am quite accurate with it at 50 yards. We have little air gunning here in Albuquerque so I have never competed but will at Extreme Benchrest. I really like the pistol so much that when I saw these other rifles, I grabed them up.
    My friend Van Jacobi used to be a Falcon dealer and had tons of parts and old stocks in his shop. I saw an old AOA display at SHOT from 2004 and Falcon was the FX back then. They really had some cool looking rifles. I helped him put the pistol together with spare parts he had laying around. We had a ball doing it! I went ahead and bought an extra stock thinking I would put the pistol on it later but then the other rifles appeared. I just happen to see the ad in the yellow the same day I listed in AGN classified for the second stock. Guess God was looking out after me! These are just unique vintage rifles that I enjoy shoot behind the house. It really help me play the wind.
    Thanks for asking,

    Doc
