I has semi-auto! FX Monsoon

Unread postAuthor: jackssmirkingrevenge » Thu Nov 15, 2007 8:52 am

edit: w00t!!! finally got my grubby mitts on it! check out page 3 :D


I haven't bought an air rifle this year and the December is fast approaching, I'm thinking of putting an order for one of these.

Image

30 ft/lbs 0.22" semi-auto, it really is the mutt's nuts :D

Here it is the FX revolution - the previous model to the Monsoon - in action:

Very tempting :D

edit: just came back from putting down my deposit, but it'll be at least a month before it arrives :cry:

Hay you lucky bugger, that thing is awesome! :D How many air rifles do you have?

I only have a Hatsan 1000fps .177 break barrel. But I love that thing. You need a licence for a .22 air rifle in this country unfortunately.

I will be picking up on of these for xmas, I have already saved up half the money I need, then there is extra clips oviously :D : http://www.wolverineqtg.com/kwc-desert-eagle.html

Not enough, apparently :roll: here's my current collection:

I've see some Hatsans around, not the best rifles on the market but good value for money.

B2B, there's a guy at my club who has a Dragon Slayer, tremendous thing to fire - even just holding on of those 50 calibre slugs in your hand is enough to get you going :shock: I was pondering going big bore but the fact that the Monsoon is semi-auto sold me, maybe next year :D

The possibilities of a hammer valve are starting to grow on me...

I just looked up exactly what a 225grain .50 pellet at 195ft/lbs was and its about 14.6g and only a a few tens of psi drop in a reasonable air chamber at 3000psi...

Nice Anics SKIFF 3000!
I have the original version ( without the fake suppressor).

I used to love commercial airguns, until I made my first shotgun.
No commercial airgun will knock a piece of plywood out of your hand and leave a 1"hole in it at the same time...


I hear good things about LOGUN airguns.They come with working suppressors..

You'd better have your SCUBA tank handy - the Dragon Slayer doesn't get much more than 5 useful shots per charge. If you want a multishot, then a hammer valve is a good idea - but for sheer power, it pales in comparison to piston valves.

If I had 3000 psi on tap (which I do :D ) and the materials that could withstand it (which I don't :( ) I'd prefer to make a coaxial that would drive that 225 grain slug almost twice as fast as the Dragon Slayer does, making the need for any other follow up shots superfluous.

That's actually a real suppressor I made myself, see attached pics :)

I agree that nothing beats the destructive power of a large bore spudgun, but I also like my long range accuracy, as well as the pride of ownership of being able to fondle a piece of finely engineered craftsmanship and rub it lovingly with an oily cloth :)

I hear good things about LOGUN airguns.They come with working suppressors..


Loguns are mostly rebadged models of other rifles and generally thought to be overpriced, though I do like their S16, in fact i was going to get the 35 ft/lb XS version before I saw the Monsoon was available. Their silencers are highly regarded, especially the new Logun QGS,

Very nice!!

I have always wondered if I could turn it into a 9mm.That would render the reloading mechanism useless, but I wouldn;t care.
The problem is, I can't even get the slide off to take a look inside!!

To own the Monsoon in the UK you would first of all need a FireArm Certificate, because 30 ft/lbs is well over the 12 ft/lbs limit - but even if you had this, as far as I know semi-auto air rifles (excluding the lower powered CO2 ones like the Crosman Nightsalker cannot be imported because of home office law that states that the only 22LR rimfire rifles can be owned in semi-auto.

I doubt it - the thing with the Anics is that the barrel itself is the hammer that knocks the valve open, so it would involve quite a lot of re-engineering, especially the mag feed.

How about convering a Crosman into a 0.357" shot pistol :D

yeah its just a bit over :lol: i wonder why only 22lr semi-auto rimfires can be imported and not semi-auto air rifles? wouldn't a 22 be more powerful?

I read on their hopepage they used a special valve...never knew what that was...but...

http://www.pyramydair.com/site/manuals/drulov-rada/

Getting one of those would be easier.

I've alway's wondered.
THe Drulov Rada is a 9 mm CO2 pistol firing 12 shots per 12 granm capsule.So...using that technology...
Why hasn't anybody made a 9 mm CO2 revolver??

Do they think it won't sell or WHAT???
I'd buy one!!

It's a quirk in home office law. The legislation allows semi-auto smoothbores like shotguns, paintball markers etc, but when it comes to rifled firearms (and any air rifle over 12 ft/lbs is a firearm in the eyes of UK law) only 0.22LR is legal. Such a rifle would be 3 times more powerful than the FX, but there you go the law's an ass.

Why hasn't anybody made a 9 mm CO2 revolver??


How about a six-shot pneumatic revolver in 0.22" doing over 900 fps?

Evanix AR6 :D

Well, wonder if someone here could possibly duplicate one of these guns, if you dont have it and cant buy it, why not try to make it :idea: . Only if we all had the materials and tools :( . I would feel pretty satisfied if i made a airgun similar to a Mongoose FX or a Evianix AR6 :) . But you are getting one hell of a air rifle there :P . Where do you live, in the U.S.? Did you need a license for a air rifle even though it is semi auto?

P.S. Nice suppressor :D

Is this one of those presents that you tell your girl that you really really want and she doesn't have to pay for it if she lets you get it? :D
