Airgun writer Tom Gaylord did some velocity testing of the Texan. See a chart of his findings in the supplementary images. The AirForce Texan delivers more power than any other production air rifle: .45-caliber bullets leave the muzzle at 1000 fps (up to 500+ ft-lbs. of energy). Load, cock, aim, squeeze and deliver jaw-dropping power. An entire world of hunting opportunities has just opened up to you!

Is there a 3000 fps pellet gun?
At this time, there isn't a pellet gun that shoots projectiles at 3000 fps, however, the AirForce Texan comes as close as a pellet gun can get. The Texan shoots .45 caliber pellets at 1000 fps from a 3000 psi pre-charged pneumatic tank. It's a favorite among airgun hunters.

I have hunted three seasons. This year the buck I shot ended up jumping twenty feet, died almost instantly. The shot was through-and-through. Pellet was Hunters Supply 45 Caliber 279 grain Flat Point. Dead-on accurate. Rifle power was more than ample, roughly 2,450 PSI. I have found this rifle to be accurate with light-weight pellets, about 180 gr, up to heavy 400 gr. Learning PSI and adjusting for pellet drop isn't difficult. Next up, trying 340 gr cast from Lee 2-Cavity Bullet Mold 457-340-F 45-70 Government (457 Diameter) 340 Grain Flat Nose.

Pros
Accuracy, power, balance.

Cons
Not many significant points. Nothing is ever perfect. The performance outweighed any minor issues.

There are many aftermarket mods and accessories available from third party online vendors. Many vendors supply ammo designed specifically for the Texan as well. The customizable Texan platform may well become the AR of the airgun world.

Pros
Shooting my Texan is the most fun I've had with my clothes on. Other than seals and O rings, there isn't a single bit of plastic in this thing, just precision crafted steel and aluminum. Its accuracy and repeatability is just phenomenal. When shot from the bench with a bipod, it can drive tacks at 100+ yards. Customer service is solid as well and they stand behind their lifetime warranty. The pressure gauge on my .457 Texan recently developed a slow leak after 4 years. I spoke with Rachel at Airforce and had a replacement gauge two days later, free of charge. It's the little things.

Cons
When kitted out with a scope, suppressor, bipod, etc, it can get a bit long, unwieldy and front heavy. You're not going to easily carry it through underbrush. The loading tray dimension limits the bullets that can be loaded to about one inch in length (with the TX-1 valve). I don't know if the new TX-2 valve allows for more clearance, but the general consensus is that the new valve favors heavier bullet weights, which might not fit the loading tray.

Beware Air Force guns corporate. Had a problem with air tank. I was given a return doc sent it back and was told it would be repaired or replace. It has been at least a month and a half and no tank return and have just been blown of off when ask about it.

Pros
Best 50 cal out there.

Cons
None

I WAITED A LONG TIME FOR AF TO BRING OUT THE 257. i JUST PURCHASED THIS GUN AND ALTHOUGH I'VE SHOT IT I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET OUTDOORS TO A RANGE. WINTER WEATHER AND BACK SURGERY HAVE PUT ME BEHIND FOR A GOOD WHILE. I OWNED A 457 TEXZAN WHICH I SOLD TO ONE OF MY SONS FOR DEER IN WISCONSIN. THE SIDECOCKER DESIGN IS SUPERIOR TO ANYTHING THEY HAVE MADE BEFORE. I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO SOME COYOTE AND HOG HUNTING IN THE FUTURE.

Well, what to say...This gun is the cats meow. There is nothing on this gun that doesn’t scream “Quality!” It is absolutely beautiful and shoots like a competition gun. The power this thing exudes is like that of a center fire rifle. It only took about 4-5 shots to get it sighted in. I put 2 full boxes of pills through this gun and it is an absolute blast. As with all things, I did some custom work to make it my own (see pics) but the mods were purely aesthetic. It shoots perfectly right out of the box. I own many air guns but I’m at a bit of a crossroads now. Will I really enjoy shooting them now that I have this Texas Monster? Not likely. If you’re in the market for a big bore air rifle, search no more. I cannot imagine what a gun would have to offer that would make it more appealing to me than the Texan. It’s pure, high pressure excitement on steroids. Just an amazing piece.

Pros
Fun to shoot Light No B.S. design Hard hitting power Beautiful to look at

Cons
You?ll find that you now need therapy because you?re head over heels in love with a gun Your friends will be jealous because now you?re way cooler than them. Women will approach you at random asking you to donate your sperm because they want their children to be as awesome as you. You?ll find yourself constantly shopping for black ?Arthur Fonzarelli? jackets to maintain the aura of being the coolest person you?ve ever met.

I hunt in CA... technically I don't think I'm allowed to take any game with a non-centerfire projectile. BUT, I'm not saying I won't be hunting Coyote and other non-game animals with this... IF I were to do something like this... to be MORE legal... are there any non-lead ammo options? Will it take standard .452 bullets (as long as I keep the weight in the generally accepted weight range)?

asked Christopher from USA

I believe the lead ammo ban in CA only applies to firearms and not air rifles. Lead is the best thing to use. Jacketed bullets will strip the rifling out of air gun barrels

Jacob from USA

i have alot of 45 cal .452 dia bullet molds will they work in my 45 cal texas air rifle

asked gary from USA

Does this 45 caliber have the new tx2 vile

asked Thomas from USA

About 2 get this rifle in the .50 Cal but i need to know the EXACT SIZE of rounds i need to fit this (.50, .510 ) . Thank you

asked Tony from USA

Most accurate hunting is Mr Hollowpoint out of my gun.I also shoot neilson sp and they are great in 388grn hollowpoints

Darnell from USA

i shoot neilson speciality .But Mr Hollowpoints are the best Good shooting

Darnell from USA

what kind of sling can be made to work with the airforce texan ?

asked Eric from USA

Can i use 25 cal pellets instead of bullets Because .257 ammo is not imported but we do have .250 cal ammo wil that work

asked Rudolf from USA

I have the TA Texan 45 cal. And am looking for a suppressor, I am all so looking for the carbon fiber tank to replace the aluminum one it came with. If you could tell a cost for those it would be much appreciated.

asked Michael from USA

Have two Donnie fls and they are around 250$ Hes a great person to do business with.Probably fixing to buy another I Have the 357 and 50 cal good luck

Darnell from USA

Donnie fl suppressor

Darnell from USA

The CF tank for the Texan is AGD-A9219 $389.95. We do not carry suppressors, Look at Donny FL on-line.

Mark from USA

Does this model texan come with the 510 caliber Lothar-Walther barrel, the recently released TX2 valve system?

asked Stephen from USA

The TX2 valve is only available in the 45 cal Texan.

Mark from USA

Can I shoot the 50 cal Air Bolt out of the 50 cal Texan?

asked William from USA

Yes

Mark from USA

I'm torn between getting an AirForce Texan in one of the big bore calibers (.357 would be my choice) or the FX Impact in .35. Comparing the pros and cons of each. Both great PCPs. Help me spend my hard-earned money. Why should I buy the AFT besides being patriotic and buying US made (I'm in Dallas)

asked BERNARDO from USA

The AF Texan is a very good hunting gun. The FX Impact is a really good target gun and also hunts well. The FX trigger is much better. They both shoot very well out to 120-150 yards.

Mark from USA

Are barrels interchangeable?

asked Norman Thompson

No where can I find any reference to this airguns shooting range ? Would someone help me out on this please ? I would have at least expected AirgunDepot to provide some pertinent info on this critical information ! Thanks !

asked James from USA

Can someone provide what thread size DonnyFL Emperor suppressor compatible with gun or direct link to compatible suppressors, thank you

asked Sami Jawad

Can this shoot .308???

asked Jason Reinhardt

They sell air rifle pellets. I was wonding if I could use reloading bullets and use those instead of special ording them from the website.

asked Michael

I assume, since this is listed as pre-order, that any answer has to be from AirForce or a reviewer, so, how many shots are usable from one charged tank? Thanks for the time to answer.

asked William from USA

Youtube says 4-6 good shots thats why i would buy the tank combo

Wyatt from USA

Depending on weight of bullet, 405 grain gets 2 good shots. 200 grain up to 6 shots between fills.

Thadeous

We have not got the full specs sheet as of this time but we should be getting that information soon. We are working very closely with AirForce on the release of this new rifle and are hoping to get a test model soon.
