just remember to watch your air.with the electronic guns, if you run low on air and continue to fire the gun, it messes the gear box up and the gun has to be disassembled to re-time everything. i had to rebuild a conquest , a gtk 390
 and a max, all for the same reason

another drawback, for me anyway, is their extremely slow lock time. when you pull the trigger, you actually have to wait for the gun to fire

I actually kind of liked that,
 pull the trigger and you have time to restabilise the gun after any kind of movement the trigger pull might have caused, so by the time it fires you're actually rock solid again,...yes I liked that.

I was told that by Will Piatt...not about the low air warning but about jams. It seems that you have to remove the top of the rifle to unjam it. That's going to be a pain...but, it's the only pain in town.

I know a few folks who had that hunk of crap Evanix auto thing. Its paintball like trigger was laughable at best. IMO spray an pray is not a very humane way of hunting. Plinking ? sure, but far to expensive to keep around as a toy.

Well. I hope you're wrong about that because it looks like a lot of fun...

It was fun for a bit. Take a while to get used to its goofy electric trigger. Sure many like em but its definitely not my cup of tea.

I'm essentially a firearms convert with 35 years of gun collection/competition shooting behind me. I'm still not over my surprise at how much more complicated and sophisticated air rifles are than firearms.

It should be obvious to me why. Air rifles not only provide the launcher for the projectile but also the power. In firearms the duties are split. The cartridge is often more complex than the rifle.

I'm going to share an ATN X-sight ii I have between the Evanix that Will Piatt is modding for me with the left handed Flex that Travis is building. 

Why am I becoming a convert?  The notion that I can have something that is powerful enough for my requirements, is essentially recoiless, suppressed, full-auto capable, supremely accurate, almost free to shoot, that I can shoot it at night on my property without neighbor/law problems and do it all at AT NIGHT! Is still almost too much for me to absorb. To me, this is almost a soul liberating revelation.

So forgive me if I am enamored with attributes that some folks may not really find all that useful.
