    so back in July my girlfriend who has a history of buying me lame gifts asked a friend of mine if I had been talking about anything in particular recently,he told her about this little Bullpup that I was looking at the Kral puncher breaker,I had just watched the review on AEAC and was interested but I talked myself out of it,well guess what she got me…the sliver and synthetic.22 KPBS,and once I held it and shouldered it I liked it even more….and then I put some air in it and got her sighted in i was even more impressed .i was making one hole groups at 25yds with 16 gr  Diablo field pellets and then the nite rolled in and time to put the new gun away for the nite.wake up early excited to push it out to 50 yds Grab the gun to put some air in it and it’s empty zero psi, the gauge  O ring was popping out of it ,get on the phone with PA and tell them they need to send me some Orings,couple days later I get the new o rings and pop them in ….back in business….for a day that is.the o ring popped out again overnight,so back it goes to PA,A week or so later I get it back with air in it and all seems well,put a couple tins through it and I really like little gun,accurate at least 70 shots per fill,shoots well with a couple different pellets….I am happy!! Then I was out back shooting some paper and I take a shot and PPSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! The valve stem goes!! I had read that this was an issue but was hoping I could dodge that bullet,but no,so since I got the gun as a gift I decided to stop messing around with PA and just send the gun to a pro,I sent a email to Troy hammer at  annihilator and asked him to work his magic…..hardened valve stem,quiet kit,tune,and off it goes again.at this point the gun has spent more time on the UPS truck then in my hands.when I get the gun back it’s doing this weird poi shift left to right,way above my pay grade,so I ask on here if any one has an idea and before two guys can answer Troy chimes in and says send it back he will make it right,now I never mentioned his name only that I was having an issue and he jumped right in,that said a lot to me .so I packed it up again and back it goes,turns out the shroud was damaged during shipping so he replaced it without a second thought.well the gun now shoots better then when I got it,it’s much quieter,the trigger is perfect for my needs and as you see in the pictures the gun is giving the squirrels around here headaches,so  The moral of the story is if your gonna buy a Kral do yourself a favor and get it from Troy…the extra $100-150 is money well spent,

    This was 40yds ,12 shots

    You know what you have to do now? You have no choice but marry that girl. If you don’t, you have to return the gun.
    All kidding aside, that was very generous for your girlfriend to buy you this gun. Sounds like a keeper. Is that camo wrap on the stock and on the scope?

Well ….while my gun was traveling back and forth to Ohio for one reason or another I saw the Utah Airguns patriot wildcat and started looking at hydro dipping, so I did a little research and found a guy locally that did that type of work ,I sent it to him and I am very happy with the results ,so much so that I purchased and extra stock for my Wildcat and it’s being done as we speak,in a digital winter Camo,anxious to get that one back

    Glad to see another happy Kral owner.  Troy will be the tuner I use when mine gets a professional do-over.  What is your FPE?

    Your paint job is cool, too.

    Wow! That is one of the most beautiful air rifles I have ever seen! Glad your tuner got the problems straightened out for you…he sounds like a stand up guy. How do we get a hold of him in case we buy a Kral?

Sorry…I just assumed everyone here knew who Troy is,he is a stand up guy in my book,I would recommend buying from Troy if you are looking at any of the Kral guns. Thanks for the compliment! His website is annihilator airguns and tuning.

    Thank you for the kind words. I was happy to sort it out. Wish I had caught it up front though. I love the paint job. Looks fantastic.
