Airforce PCP Air Rifle Texan .457 Airgun
The Texan is the world’s most powerful production Airgun. The Airforce PCP Air Rifle Texan .457 is a revolutionary gun ready to bridge the gap between traditional firearms and high powered air rifles, forever destroying the perception that “it’s just an airgun.”
Airforce PCP Air Rifle Texan .457: Higher Velocities
Lightweight at just over 3.5kg, but still solidly constructed and proudly made in the USA. Due to the higher caliber and amount of air it’s pushing, there’s more recoil than other PCPs, but nothing alarming. The Texan’s 34″ barrel produces higher velocities than other .45 caliber air rifles. The Texan is neither shrouded or baffled so there is an authoritative crack each time the gun is fired.
The Texan features a side cocking lever for easy breech loading. The closing action is smooth, fast, and reliable. AirForce has really engineered a deceptively smooth lever that easily compresses a 22 lb spring. The trigger breaks around 32 ounces and is clean and crisp. The AirForce Texan features an auto-safety located at the front of the trigger guard that returns to the safe position when the side lever closes. The valve can be user tuned to either provide maximum power or maximum consistency. There are marks on the adjustment mechanism by the breech for reference so you can record your preferences for different bullets.

Airforce PCP Air Rifle Texan .457: Built-In Pressure Gauge
A handy feature is the built-in pressure gauge which allows you to monitor the drop in air pressure as you shoot. This feature is useful during a day of hunting as it is easy to lose count of how many shots have been taken, and an onboard gauge gives advance notice to refill. Also unlike other Big Bore airguns, overfilling the air tank will not result in higher air pressure, but rather will lock up the valve.
