I wonder if DAQ will make any more rifles. His list has been closed for nearly two years, and.....well time affects all of us....

And don't forget the procedure:

1. Call DAQ and reserve an Outlaw Pistol. He'll give you a price + shipping. (10 minutes)
2. You send him a check, PO Money Order etc. (1 week)
3. He'll send you an oath to sign. (2 weeks)
4. Sign the oath and send it back. (3 weeks)
5. He then sends you the airgun. (4 weeks)

Seems to take a month to get your airgun when it's one he already has built.

And that's how it goes.

True, but in 30 years will  others be collectible? I think When I am gone and my son has the .458 LA Outlaw, with a superior checkered walnut stock tucked away in his safe, it might be.

I have a different view altogether. The question remains, why would you buy one?

Way back when, as I was going up in a sporting goods store, I just had to have a Casual 454! I thought, wow, the most powerful handgun in the world at the time. You couldn't buy ammo, but you could reload for it easy enough. It used a triplex load of 2 grains of Bullseye, a bunch of Unique (≈16 grains?), and then a couple of more grains of Bullseye. Oh my my! Damn near broke my hand! And I used both hands and gloves! Hitting something with it was just as hard! And loud. Not just loud, but really damn loud!

Well, that got sold, and I bought a Colt Python (.357 Magnum) with an 8 inch barrel (somewhat rare at the time), toped with a 2X pistol scope. Easily shot, easy to hit what you aimed at, and the only draw back being its muzzle report!

Naw! Big bore guns are wonderful things to brag about if you're an Elmer Kieth fan, and maybe to hand down to the youngsters, but in my opinion, that's about all they're good for.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

sure, they are collectible now, id take a haley over a daq anyday. never owned a haley.. sold a daq. it was a crudely machined hunting gun with a korean cliff shot curve. could it be collected? sure, would i? no... it was cool dont get me wrong. loved it for all of a week. i collect plenty of things actual firearms yes, but airguns are not one of them. i play with airguns because i like to shoot, ammo is cheaper and i actually use them vs keeping them in a closet or safe..

Traded mine for a .25 Air Ranger. We were both happy with the deal, but I got the better end!

Each of us has our own reasons for buying / selling different air guns. Collecting or shooting  it's all good  :)

I purchased the DAQ with the hopes NY opens large game to air gun hunting,Small game was opened a few years ago.  The Department of environmental conservation has had open discussions on large game hunting this past year.

I am almost 60 and have been hunting / shooting since my dad gave me my first bb gun. I have used traditional archery, compound bows, crossbow, pistols, rifles, Muzzle loader to hunt whitetail. I would look forward to hunting with the big bore.

I have a few .22 and a .25 marauder for target and small game,  shoot them all the time.

     These guns shoot great!!! I have a close friend who is a close friend to Dennis Quackenbush even hunts on Dennis's farm. He has sent me pics of nice groups out to 100yds yards with this gun!!! I'm considering purchasing one, Dennis will not be around forever and the Quackenbush guns will be gone forever! This will leave me a rep of a Great Pioneer in the Big Bore Airguns. The DAQ guns have proven themselves in Africa, and the states that allow Airgun deer hunts! The DAQ is not a bench rest gun, it's a proven hunter. I have a couple and would like a couple of pistols to add to my collection.

   Just my two cents!!
Take care Fellas

100 yard groups with a .58 round ball pistol with 100fps spread over 2 shots  flying around 500fps average being called nice ::). I would like to see said group pictures, I mean we're talking 6+ inches between shots for velocity change alone.
