AirForce Texan .45 Cal, IraqVeteran8888 Combo
The exact Big Bore rifle set-up used by Eric Blandford (IV8888)
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! AirForce Texan Features Diagram

Just get it trust me
I have the Iraq veteran8888 AirforceTexan 45 package I bought a suppressor from Donnyfl Which made the high powered rifle sound like a 22. I love it, I love the way it feels in my hands it's very impressive And I would like to thank Craig for helping me with the order and everyone at Airgun Depot they have been very very helpful If I can update this review later i will record the texting with and without the suppressor
ProsWith the Iraq veteran package it has everything you need
ConsNone that I can think of at this time other than the fact I had to buy a suppressor separately.
Best UsesI've just been Target practicing. I will be hunting with it as soon as the season is in

Very good shooting gun
Not much experience with the item but they express I do have with it I really like it but with the gun shoots like the simplicity of loading the rifle and the different types of projectiles you can put in the right
Pros Ease of loading
Cons Knowing how to set the power and changing it determining the size of the color there’s no gauge or anything to tell you which gauge to use with power level to use depending on the villages

This thing is no toy!
This rifle is a true no BS rifle capable of taking deer or other large game. It is also great for inexpensive plinking. I have been working my targets out farther and farther and Ive found out that with some practice you can still get shot groups similar to an AR-15 at 200 meters. Im very impressed with it.
ProsPowerful, great looking, accurate.
ConsThis rifle is longer than my longest gun case.

bad ass!!!
Two words; bad ass!!!
ProsAt first there were some issues, Airforce Guns sent me a replacement immediately, so far no more problems...awesome gun... Once again two words...;bad ass...!
ConsMissed a week of fun time waiting for gun number two, but beyond awesome acceptable when coupled with the end results... I would recommend this gun to anyone wanting to enjoy their time shooting, hunting, etc...

Power for price
Until now 500 foot pounds was a 2000 dollar price tag and a 12 week wait for a custom build, in comes the texan a 500 foot pound air rifle opening doors for big game hunting with out the hugh price and hugh wait. A plethora of ammo for the 45 caliber can be found all over the internet, and lots of mods to tweak the rifle to just the way you want it.
ProsLight, power, lots of mods, lots of ammo choices, accurate out past 100 yards
ConsA bit long and loud but you will have that with big bores

This airgun has plenty of power. Unfortunately the hammer spring that comes with these is not sufficient. I experienced valve lock out of the box on a 2900 psi charge with 265 swc pellets. With the improved spring that I installed I now have no valve lock up to 3000 psi along with more consistent velocities and accuracy. Allowing me to take this 330 pound wild boar with a complete pass through on film. As far as I know it is the largest animal taken with the texan on film.
ProsPower Potential for great accuracy Potential for reliability
ConsHammer spring not sufficient

Airforce Texan
Awesome airgun. Powerful but not as loud as a rifle. Need 11 mm dovetail rail mounts or get a dovetail to weaver mount for scopes

A lot of rifle...
Ordered a 457 with the pony tank combo....mounted a Hawke 3-9 Airmax. Even with the power wheel opened up,I still ran a bit shy of 500 ft lbs.Accuracy was acceptable with Air Venturi and Cast hollowpoints...round balls,not so much. Great overall quality and a decent trigger....can't wait to hunt with it.
ProsEven falling slightly short of 500 ft lbs,it's still a sledgehammer...finally makes big game accessible with a production gun.
ConsNot heavy,but very long.

This Dog hunts
when compared to other air rifles this one is a big dog, with all the bite and all the bark. It has no problem shooting threw a 4"x4" inch wood fence post.
Prosmass power, weapon can be tuned to what ever size slug your choosing to shoot. built well, lots of space to attach accessories. E Z to use. Simple and reliable design handles wet weather.
ConsAs loud as a .22 rifle

massive power
we have a big problem with nuisance mustangs. if you ever wanted a gun that can drop a horse, this would be one of them. i have dropped several mustangs at this point. a head shot stops them stone cold. this rifle was much cheaper than capture and relocation fees and horse is delicious. win win

My Texan has arrived
First impression......IT'S A Canon!!! First thing I did when it arrived (8-11-2015) is put on my Hawke Sport Optics Vantage 4-12x50 AO Rifle Scope, sighted it in at 40 yards, then had at it. Started blowing out center of bullseyes so I decided to check what a 143 round ball would do to a fire treated glazed brick, and it blew it to pieces at 40 yards. Haven't put it to the chrony yet but I expect it is as advertised. I have 143, 180, 200, 230, 350, and 405 grain bullets and will be checking them all. This thing is LOUD! Louder than my Sumatra 2500 .22 at supersonic speeds......ditto with my Hatsan BT 65 SB .25. What a thrill to shot this thing. Will report back with chrony numbers at a later date. Right now I need to fortify my backstop. lol Buy it you will NOT regret it. Be safe and use all safety measures you would use with a regular firearm. Rick B
ProsPower like CRAZY. Has amazing accuracy......better than I am capable of achieving with these old eyes. Wonderful trigger, nice and light. (around 2.5 - 3 lbs ) Light compared to my Hatsan, Sumatra, and maybe a bit lighter than my Sam Yang 909 Light Hunter, and WAAYYYY more powerful. Very streamlined like all AirForce guns.
ConsLoud, LOud, LOUD. Not really a bad thing, just is what it is. I'm more of an "old school" kind of guy and would prefer the traditional look of a standard gun. ( You know, wood stock....blah blah blah) It's got that Star Trek look, kind of like a totally tricked out Tactical 223.......not actually a CON per say, just not traditional. (Personal preference, that's all) That aside, it IS a beautiful gun in it's own right.

Awesome rifle
I ordered the Iraq Veteran combo, and I cant say I'm any less than very happy with this rifle. I have tested the accuracy out to 100 yards and I get great results. The power is amazing. This is my first airforce rifle and I am really pleased with it. I may change the pistol grip as I have very large hands, but thats about it. Power, and accuracy. what else could you ask for.
ProsAccuracy, power
Consvery long gun
