Now this I hadn't seen before.

Pretty impressive specs as can be expected from a high pressure big bore:

Removable bolt design, and oh look! Fullbore fins :D

I wonder what the valve looks like.

So, according to those numbers, it takes two hours to fill the chamber with the pump.

You'll have to remember to switch arms frequently, or otherwise face the risk of muscle development so lopsided, you'll incur some less than flattering jokes regarding your internet/spare time usage:)

I can't see anything that gives a hint as to the valve's design. I do see some vent holes on that tube, though I'm not sure if it's pump cylinder or just a pilot port.

That's a pretty awesome. I like the metallic look. Is it made out of aluminum?

Its definitely Co-axial, because I dont see any air chamber, and the thing doesnt look like you could breach load it. Please correct me if im wrong though

I suspect the spec sheet is a work of fiction.

What I see is a breech loaded coaxial combustion with a built in meter in the breech. The pistol grip is an item carried by our sponsor for ignition.

Magair 1180 is pre 2005...

Rather little info remaining on it, but this is may help with some real answers...around half way down...google will turn up a little more.

Virtually zero info on this one...CO2MUCH....about 3/4 of the way down.... :)

That's where I found it, the reappearance of the archery thread prompted some google meanderings :D
