Texan SS .457 is set up and awesome.

Postby Kirk » Fri Nov 08, 2019 2:35 pm

I finally got the Texan SS .457 PCP air rifle set up with a scope and some great ammo. Brand new Hawke 3 X 9 Airgun scope first time on rifle. Got it touching holes at 50 Yards in just 6 shots. Operates best at 2700 PSI. On a 3000 psi charge I got 7 shots before I noticed in fall off in trajectory. The rifle is factory suppressed and is very quiet.

What is the camo wrap you have on there? I have the same SS and looking for that kind of wrap (or sleeve). I'm shooting the NSA 290 gr. Very happy with the 50 yd. performance but haven't punched any meat with it yet. Hoping to drop the buck I've been chasing this week(end). Very nice looking setup!
