The Airforce Texan has opened up the flood gates into people wanting mega power out of a big bore airgun.  The original Texan air rifle was a .457, 500 ft lb monster.  A monster it was in both power and length of gun.

Airforce Texan

With an overall length of a staggering 48 inches with no shroud it surprises people it only weighs 7.65 lbs.  It’s all metal construction make it stout and nibble for it’s size.  The gun is non-traditional looking but iconic from manufacture, Airforce, it takes the shape of the smaller brothers the Condor and Talon.

Although they have some similarities, the Condor and Talons are no match for the power and pure awesomeness of a Texan.  What makes an Airforce Texan different from the baby brothers is the size, power, sidecocking and caliber choice.  If you want to step up into the big boys arena from Airforce you need to be looking at Texan.

Texan currently comes in 3 calibers.  The big daddy and one that started it all is the 45 caliber.  This 500 ft lb beast is .457, can push bullets in the 300 grain range at decent velocity for a flatter trajectory or when you need big ft lbs you can shoot bullets nearly 400 grains.  This gun has a 1:20 twist and is suited to shoot bullets on the heavier side for best accuracy in the range of 260 to 395 grains.

Next in line is the Texan 357 with 350 ft lbs.  The high powered 35 caliber Texan boasts the same size as the 45 in overall length and the only real change is the barrel and valve.  Looking at the gun side by side you would not tell the difference.  This high power rifle comes with a 34 inch barrel, 1:16 twist and again is geared to shoot heavier bullets.  You can shoot bullets from 100 to 190 grains but most bullets will shoot best in the heavier weights.

Rounding out the lineup is the Texan .308 also looking identical to it’s big brothers. This 30 caliber has the best shot count of the three big bores and is an excellent choice as varmint big bore.  the .308 barrel is a 1:14 twist can shoot bullets in the 100-180 grain range with an eye opening 300 ft lbs.  Again, heavier bullets show the most promise in these guns.

Now that you have your gun of choice, it is time to chose the best ammunition for your air rifle.  Nielsen Specialty Ammo makes some of the finest airgun ammo in the world.
