This is the exact same set-up that Eric Blandford used in his IraqVeteran8888 field review of the AirForce Texan. In his own words, this set-up is diabolical! You'll get the .45 caliber AirForce Texan, the extra Picatinny/Weaver rails, the awesome Hawke Sidewinder 4-16x50 scope, a locking bi-pod, and a 88 cu in carbon fiber tank that fills to 4,500 psi allowing for multiple refills of your new AirForce Texan, but small enough to take into the field on your first deer hunt with the AirForce Texan. This combo is exclusive to AirGun Depot, and the savings of getting this exclusive combo totals over $190! The IraqVeteran8888 combo will only be available for a limited time

I already have a Texan SS and am quite happy with it. Got the Texan Iraq veteran setup to use deer hunting. Just add pellets and you have everything needed to spend a morning or afternoon hunting.

Mounting the scope was a slight challenge as you must mount the rails first; they came without instructions. Excellent scope, easy to zero and a joy to use. Quite pleased with the first 100 yards result of 1 inch three shot group.

Ergonomics,similar to the Texan SS, take a little while to get use to. This is a heavy rifle, while I notice almost no recoil, it is loud. Very loud! The weight and lack of an adequate carrying method make it cumbersome and tiring to use for anything but stationary hunting.

Overall I am very pleased with this rifle. I'll use it for hunting from a stand and add it to my collection if nice bench rest guns.
Prosaccurate ease of operation
Best Usesmoderate range hunting target practice

All I can say is wow. This thing shoots a 150gr pellet very consistent. I have not shot any other pellets or bullets from it. The 150 hits hard. I am not sure how much energy at 100 yards but it will make a loud ping when hitting 1/4 inch plate steel. I am waiting for my 300 gr lead cast bullets to arrive to test them out. 3 shot group with 150gr pellet from 1.5 inch at 100 yards.
ProsHard hitting. Accurate.
ConsLoud but I fixed this with a short shroud from huntersupply.
Best UsesMy best use is target shooting. Maybe hunting in the near future. Here in Texas anyway.

this gun is amazing! I've owned airguns before, but this thing is a beast! every time I fire this gun im still stunned over the recoil! this from an air gun! putting a 340gr round downrange at 100 yards (the farthest ive shot this gun to date) and being able to shoot 1" groups is truly stunning.
Prostrigger is nice and has a distinctive break. solid, even for beefier fingers, im a big guy and have no problem. did think that with the tank as the stock the ergonomics would be a bit weird, not the case here. its a comfortable fit and a joy to shoot.
Consif I can find anything to fault this gun on, and not really a fault, think its more for safety, is that safety on the gun is a bit stiff and takes a good push with your finger to put into the firing position. but do you really want a safety that can move all that easily?

Just What I was looking for!!!!

My wife Bought this for me. I was skeptical at first, having never shot an air rifle over .177...Boy was I surprised!
This thing is bad to the bone. I got the IraqVeteran8888 combo kit in .45 cal. It is accurate, has a kick, and has a wicked punch even out to 100 yards!
So far this Beast likes the 265 to 305gr. .457 lead rounds best, but it will throw a 405gr round out to 50 to 75 yards with enough force to drop a large Deer..EASY
It is Loud, but hey, that comes with the power this baby has..I ordered a shroud from RLAir gun supply for 168.00 with tax..Fits perfect and makes a BIG difference In suppressing the sound and actually
Improves accuracy a little too..Can"t wait for more mods come out!!!
ProsI love everything about this rifle!!!!!
ConsWaiting for the Mods to come to market.

Very good gun but you need to be patient and spend some time at the range. Shoots 457 round balls very well. I never tried to shoot more than 75 yards. i also had very good results with 255 grain hollow points and 280 grain hollow points that i ordered from mr. Hollow point . I killed a doe during gun season at 47 yards with a 255 grain hollow point the gun definitely did its job. You must hold this gun steady to shoot accurately it does want to recoil up the better you can hold it the better your accuracy has been my experience.
Pros in missouri this gun is legal for all deer seasons including muzzle loader and doesn't need to be cleaned like a muzzleloader.
ConsGun is heavy and long and you need a scuba tank to fill
