Single-shotA gun that has to be reloaded for every shot. Big Bore 909S .45 cal. air rifle with a 244cc air reservoir. Dramatic power and excellent performance. Two power levels. When cocking the gun, the first bolt stop is low power, the second is high. This elegant second-generation design is combined with a brilliant metal finish. A checkered, a method of carving wood that leaves diamond-shaped protrusions to assist in gripping the gun. Also used for decoration.

This rifle is not joke. Very powerful, and with a bit of tuning, accurate. More, it is also a quite nice weapon. It was already said in some of the past reviews and I confirm not a backyard friendly weapon. It is a PCP weapon, if you do not have a refilling tank, be ready for a lot of pumping....

Pros
Powerful.

Cons
Noisy...noisy noisy....On my first shot I was unprepared and my right ear was ringing for a while. Someone described as a tire blowing out, and I agree with that description.

Powerful .45 cal big bore ,this is by far the most powerful air rifle I own, even more powerful than my .22 cal rimfire,this gun is made for hunting coyote hogs ,shoots round ball and slugs 230 gr plus amazing take down power,up to 200 lbs of energy at the muzzle,can't beat the price power accuracy for the money, I'm impressed with the power and performance and i own a Ak 47 centerfire rifle and many other air guns !!

Pros
Hard hitting Powerful Accuracy affordable gets the job done

Cons
needs scope , air tank a must

I have really enjoyed shooting this pop gun more than I thought I would. When my wife gave it to me for my 50th B-Day, I was excited but never thought it would be this much fun. It is soooo quiet too. I normally shoot real CF rifles (.338 Lapua is my favorite these days).

Pros
Accurate, fun, and inexpensive to shoot.

Cons
Slow to reload I suppose.

It took me a while to get to test this gun like I wanted to. I had to find a place to "air" it. (Can't use the word fire here). This is is a real weapon, not a backyard toy. With my first shot, with no scope adjustment, I hit a 2" target 30 yards away shooting off-hand! I put a 143 gr. round ball in a 1 gallon water filled milk container. It blew it apart then went through the 1" thick wooden back board behind it. I was convinced it could put dinner on the table. The bluing, the wood, checkering and overall look of the gun is very pleasing. Pumping it up is a bit of a workout but it saves on the fitness center bills! I had to go with a scuba tank though. Good to have both I think. I love this thing. They could have done a better job on the receiver and cocking handle for the price. I'd like to try the other calibers.

It's loud for an airgun. Sounds like a small tire blowing out. Not as loud as a firearm but very loud for an air rifle. Not neighborhood friendly. That said, it's a very powerful air rifle that is graceful and very comfortable to hold and shoot. It feels like a Remington 742/1100/870 when you shoulder it. Buy it.

What is the thread pattern on the light hunter in 45cal.

asked Eugene from USA

Can you put a scope on it

asked Michael J Poole

Does this come with an adapter to use in an air compressor?

asked Courtland

What hand pump can be used with the big bore 45 caliber air rifle?

asked Cory

What ammunition would yall recommend using? And if possible, what scope?

asked David

What caliber projectile does this use? 0.451, 0.452 or 0.458

asked Kris

Where do you buy the ammo for this gun and doesitusean actual 45 Cal bullet?

asked Phillip Self

Can you use all air Venturi .45 pellets? Do you need to send barrel into smith like mr. hollow point suggests for more variety of ammo choices?

asked christopher cato

This appears to have a knurled end to the barrel. Is the barrel threaded, if so what is the thread pitch? I shoot suppressed and would like to know if this has the ability for that. I do understand that this shoots subsonic, but if it is load as many say, I would like to know if I have the ability to use one of my suppressors.

asked Aaron

The specs say small game , but can this kill a large turkey , a large rabbit , possibly deer etc...

asked Joseph from USA

Where can you buy a air filler adapter that fits a co2 tank? I can seem to find the adapter and the seal on my adapter is gone.

asked Keoni

hello .... I wonder if this article was sent to Puerto Rico zip code 00720.

asked luis from USA

Luis, Please contact our International Shipping Department at [email protected] They can answer any questions you might have. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Scott from USA

how available are the hook ups to fill it with a scuba tank, and the seals, how hard is it to replace them and have you had any failures as far as air leakage.

asked David from USA

how much noise does this gun make?

asked Marion

about as noisy as a .22 rimfire. not city backyard friendly.

anthony from USA

Hi Do you ship theese abroad? I live in Finland and your air rifles are much more cheaper than here.

asked Joni

Joni, Please contact our International Shipping Department at [email protected] They can answer any questions you might have. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Scott from USA

Can you put a scope on it?

asked maria flores

yes the the receiver is grooved for scope mounts

anthony from USA

Is this gun worth the money? I am 19 and saving up for my second car but I really want this gun! What should I do?

asked C.J.

This gun is definitely worth the money, but in your case, I think that you should probably save up, buy a car, then buy this.

mohammed from USA

Definitely buy your first car or a car would make more sense then you can get a job and save up the money faster to buy the gun. I have this same gun and I love it

Gary from USA

car

JEFF from USA

Put 20 percent of your paycheck into a retirement fund.

John

Buy are car, get a job, then buy this gun. :)

Larry

You've already got a car - right? This air gun is not without its flaws, but if you buy the gun and save up another $275, and send it off to Will Piatt (Saddle Mountain Gunsmith in NC) he will remove those flaws; replace the chinsy charging handle (known for breaking) that comes with the gun with a stronger, less apt to break handle; increase the power of the gun by appx. 100 fps; decrease the trigger pull from 7-1/2 lbs to about 3 lbs, and work his magic internally to give you a gun that shoots much better than with factory settings. I just sent Will my fourth Sam Yang. He is a real craftsman and a man of honor and integrity!

William from USA

Buy the car. A car will allow you to get to work and make money to buy more air rifles.

toddyrotten

I need to know what kind of scope to mount on this gun. I am going to use it to hunt.

asked bob

I plan to use mine for deer hunting. That being the case, the effective range for a gun of this velocity/KE for deer would be about 35 yards. Since shots will be close, I went with a Leopold 1.5-5X20. More magnification than that is really too much for the close ranges I'll be shooting.

Tim

You don't need a scope to use this gun for hunting. The open sights are more than adequate for hunting purposes, and since this gun is not considered to be a target rifle, I'd say go with the sights that come on the gun. This gun is a great 50 yard small/medium size game killer, and maybe even up to coyote size. To shoot it farther out, might be effective, maybe not, but you are pushing the limits of humane kills.

William from USA

Возможна ли доставка в Россию?

asked Ivan

Sorry but your message did not appear properly. Can you please try again?

Scott from USA

How long can you keep the air in this air gun? Are there any Federal laws against owning a large bore air gun? Can these guns be used for hunting, during the same hunting season as conventional firearms?

asked Roger from USA

Most airgun manufacturers recommend that you keep air pressure in the guns at all times to keep the seals in place. There aren't any federal laws regarding airguns. But, individual states and cities can have regulations. In Minnesota, airguns aren't yet legal for big game hunting but, hopefully soon they will be. If you don't know your local laws you need to talk to your local sheriff or police chief. Airguns as powerful as this one are still a relatively new thing and the laws are still catching up. This is a better choice for whitetail deer than many of the legal "powder burners". IMHO anyway.

Tom from USA

On the hunting laws it varies state to state, and it seems,to be allowed in more states every year. Of you look up your state's fish and,wildlife website you can find the regulations and look under method of take. A few allow hog and coyote but last I checked taking deer is only allowed in texas. Almost every state allows squirrel but this is too much for that use.

Brian

Currently even big-bore airguns are not considered as "firearms" federally, so they have very little regulation compared to "real" firearms. As for the hunting; you need to check with your state hunter regulation agency. Some states require the use of different types of weapons for different species of animal (i.e. airgun/rimfire/centerfire/muzzleloader).

Rob

What type of scope, and bipod should I get for this gun?

asked Zeaed from USA

da-da-da

shit head

The entire Sam Yang product line was made with hunting in mind. As a hunting weapon, you really should make all attempts at keeping your shots inside 50 yds, for better accuracy, and more humane kills. As a 50 yard gun, the open sights are very accurate, and up for the job. Even so, some shooters are very partial to scope usage, and might want to scope this gun? Sam Yang does include a 11mm rail on which to mount a scope, but the rear sight, being unremovable, will get in the way of many scopes with larger than 32mm objective lens. The bell end of the scope will hit it. You can get around this, if you first install a 1" high mount, see thru, bridge riser, which will get you up high enough to clear the rear sight, and if you then use high mount rings, you will also clear the sight pattern so that the front sight will not impede your vision. Using the see thru riser mount will also allow you to use the open sights if necessary. The choice is yours, but I'd use the more than adequate open sights that come with the gun. PS: I own four Sam Yangs (Dragon Claw, Light Hunter, Recluse & Wing Shot) and none of them are scoped! I have no recommendation for a bipod. I can't see it as a necessary accessory, as these Sam Yangs, although with proper tuning can be very accurate, weren't meant to be target guns. Shooting sticks would be much more appropriate for these guns.

William from USA

Where can you get ammo for this? Does it use a .45 cal. bullet for a center fire cartridge?

asked Davey

no it uses a .454 bullet. round balls for black powder shoot very well in mine. Mr. Hollowpoint has a good selection of bullets for this too.

anthony from USA

Does this air rifle come with pump and the other items needed to operate it? If not, what is recommended?

asked Alan

This rifle doesn't come with a pump. I bought the Air Venturi G4 pump and used that for about a year. It's fine for hunting but if you're target shooting you'll get tired of pumping it up every 6-8 shots. It takes a lot of pumping to get it back to 3000psi. I eventually got a carbon fiber scuba tank and it's a lot more fun to shoot now.

Cameron from USA

Can this gun be shipped to the UK ?.,

asked John

Thank you for you interest. For questions about international ordering/shipping please email us at [email protected] This so we can better help you.

Steve from USA

is this a fire-arms rifle (so u need a certificate?)

asked Freddie ryde

The need for certificate is determined by your local town/city, I would check with them. Other than what may be required by your local law we have no restrictions on this rifle.

Steve from USA

i would like order 50 rifles for my company in Russia.B.R.Anatoly Drapkin,comm.director.

asked Anatoly

Sorry, we do not ship to Russia.

Steve from USA

will this thing kill a deer and does it lose air sitting in the cold

asked jamie

ALL air or compressed gas reservoirs will "lose" pressure when they are chilled. Just simple unavoidable physics. And as they are used, they self chill, further reducing pressure. The smaller the volume the more quicker this will be seen. Losing pressure does not mean the air is missing, just that the air "relaxes" as it cools. The flip side- NEVER leave a high pressure tank in your car on a hot day! Scuba & similar high pressure tanks have spontaneously become missiles blowing through the body of the care and through the owners (or neighbors) house. This can have lethal consequences!

Stu

This is made for deer hunting....it doesn't lose air unless you have bad seals.

Conor

How far will it shoot flat?

asked Randy

No gun shoots flat. All projectiles begin dropping as soon as they leave the barrel. Sites are set to intersect the projectile's trajectory (curve) on any gun. Since all projectiles accelerate toward the earth at 32 feet per second squared, "flat shooting" is simply a function of muzzle velocity and velocity retention (ballistic coefficient). 700 fps will not produce a very flat-shooting gun, at least compared with most other rifles. In fact my .45 ACP handgun with its 850 fps MV will likely shoot flatter than this air rifle, and it has a huge drop at 150 or 200 yards. (Sort of like shooting a mortar...) Having said that, the large bullet and subsonic velocity will produce massive downrange energy (great energy retention). Pretty amazing for an air rifle!

Larry from USA

I have mine sighted in at 100 yards. At 200 yards it drops about 1 1/2 mil dots. Beyond 200 yards I don't know. I'm comfortable shooting at coyote sized game out to 200 yards with it. I actually just bought my 2nd 909s because I like them so much.
