Update on new Texan in .308 and .357
« on: February 25, 2016, 03:28:56 PM »
I wrote an email to Airforce about the upcoming rifles and they were kind enough to respond very quickly.  I asked about the sizing for the bullets, bore/groove and the twist rates.  Here is a cut and paste of the response I received:

Thank you for your email and we appreciate your interest in our Texan air rifles.  The bore size will be .308 and .357 but the twist rate has not been finalized yet because we are still testing the barrels.  When testing is completed we will follow up with further details including pellet weight and velocities.  Please feel free to contact us with any further questions.


Thought I would pass on for all to be up to date with progress.
