    I've owned both in .25 and they are equal in power, accuracy and reliability, the Vulcan 2 is slightly louder but the ambidextrous forward cocking lever and the fact that you can make extremely quick follow up shots is why I kept the Vulcan 2 and sold the veteran.. with a nice moderator they are both backyard friendly

    Yep., that's what I plan on doing also. To be 100% honest, the only reason to keep the Veteran is if you're looking for a 60+ FPE .25 caliber heavy pellet or slug gun. If you're satisfied with a 45 FPE pellet shooter, the Vulcan is the way to go.  Forward easier cocking, much better looking, same accuracy, same trigger, smooth cycling, easy to tune and maintain.  The Taipan has all of the same, but its the rear cocking and the "well, she does have a good personality" looks that tips the hat to the Vulcan.  Plus the parts availability and customer service from the AGT factory is second to none…  And now that AGT has the Uragan, fuggettaboutit…  ;)

    I am interested in both but I a have an “aww man” feeling for each when deciding on either one as a second bullpup:  For the Vulcan, I feel that way because of its plastic trigger, cheekpiece, and side plate material (I think the plates are plastic as well, last time I held one). And I feel the same for the Veteran’s cocking lever location, and, yes, its stock.  Though perhaps AGT uses a high-quality polymer, for the price the Vulcan sells, it’s not acceptable to me.   I have no doubt both are precision tools, though.  Anyway, my interest has now been directed to the newly released Kalibrgun Capybara.

    I'm going to buck the trend and say go Vulcan, the vet. Is a good gun but much like the cricket it is dated in many ways and the Vulcan 2( latest). Fixes the issues… the Vulcan mags are easy to load.  Honestly if you are looking at these two look at a Uragan, you will shoot it de tuned for a week on one bottle… man the shot count is unreal it WILL need a moderator added!  And the hammer spring is easy to adjust (you do have to pull the stock)…. or just get a Lelya…..ps I did I mention to just get a Lelya?….

    Not much help with the Vulcan but I have a Veteran Long in .22 and it’s dynamite. Accuracy wise, we shoot at flys and hornets at distances I’m not going to tell you because you won’t believe me. The POI never changes, the trigger has to be one of the best on the market, and this morning, I shot 43 shots on approximately 65 lb of air according to the gauge ( I know it’s a very unscientific way of determining efficiency but it gives you a general idea). The gun fills to 250 bar and seems to drop off the regulator around 150. I have mine set a little hot and it’s shooting in the mid 900’s with 18.13’s. I’m guessing I get 70-80 shots per fill but haven’t checked it. It’s built like a tank and the mags are the easiest to load I’ve ever experienced. Incidentally, you can’t accidentally load 2 pellets in the chamber and the side lever cocking is butter smooth. The .22 is truly back yard friendly with no need for a LDC. On top of all that, I personally have never read of anyone having issues with their Taipan. On the negative side, I find a conventional rifle more comfortable to shoot and the Taipan has some weight to it, partly due to my UTG bipod and 6-32 scope. I shoot 95% off a bench so the weight is not really a concern to me. One other negative is that I hear the longs are hard to find now with the CZ barrel. There may be other airguns out there that have all the positives the Taipan has but I can’t help you there since it’s my first high end rifle. Best wishes and I hope this has been a help to someone.

    Oh I believe you.👍  For practice, with my powered-down (9 FPE) Cricket, I shoot the tips of palm leaves at 40 yards.
