Some of the airguns are pretty good. I have a P12 Bullpup and a PCP pistol and like them both.  Those that bought compressors don't seem to have had as good luck.  The problem with the company seems to be lack of communication and unanswered emails.

I included a chapter comparing the $250 AirMax PCP pistol to the $1000 Kalibrgun Ocelot PCP pistol in my latest book, Custom, Classic and Otherwise Awesome Air Pistols! (copyright 2018). Does that count?

Heres a photo included in that chapter of my series of five-shot groups shot at 35 yards.

AMP 35 groups

And here's information about the book.

Ron,

Your way of testing is about as good as it gets.  Seeing 5 groups shows that you didn't shoot a lucky bragging group, but instead shows what the gun is capable of in the hands of a really good marksman.  Does your gun have the stock barrel?

I bought that pistol off Ron last year. It is the stock barrel. I am nowhere near the marksman Ron is, and I don't even own a shooting bench, so no groups to brag about. It is a good shooting pistol, took a few rabbits with it this spring.

I believe there is a 750 model coming out this Fall...per Wes at the Canadian air gun site.  Good man to deal with.  Hopefully he will chime in and give us an update, price and his website address.

The 750 has some improvements including a really neat built-in collapsible wire butt stock, turning this excellent little shooter into an excellent little carbine.  He currenly has an AR style folding stock which I have on my 700.  With my DonnyFL Tanto and red dot I can nail just about anything I want withing my red dot range.  If I get the 750, I'll put a decent scope on it.  These little guns are shooting way above their price range!!!!

This just in today.  Website showing the GS750/GS1250.   Full details on the gun, but no word on exports yet.  I'm emailing them and will report back.

David and Clint,

David, thank you for noticing my accuracy testing criteria. My usual accuracy-testing protocol consists of at least five consecutive five-shot groups fired before calculating the average center-to-center group-size; and all fliers are included except in extremely rare cases a flier is UNDENIABLY the result of shooter error or a wind gust. 'Unexplained fliers' ARE included in accuracy calculations and quotes.

However, and for the sake of full disclosure, I'll often use three-shot groups with Co2 or multi-pump guns due to Co2's chilling effect on the gun, and multi-pump's (over) heating effect on the (old-ass) shooter.

As CM points out, I no longer own that pistol (and do miss it). But yes, it still has the original barrel; albeit I did anchor the barrel with a (drilled and tapped) set-screw at the breech end. Though I consider that gun to be field-target-worthy accurate, I also consider her a bit short and light for top-level FT work.

However I think it's ideal for small-game hunting, per Clint's comment, "It is a good shooting pistol, took a few rabbits with it this spring."

Now for the true confessions part (David). Was it not for my now Will Piatt modded .22 AR6 Hunting Master pistol, I wouldn't have parted with that AirMax... That being the AR6 with pretty walnut I decided to buy at a Texas airgun show a few years back; but on returning to Mike Melick's table to buy it, found you and a buddy handling it. My heart sank to think I'd procrastinated too long (in unsuccessfully trying to beat Mike down from his asking price). So I hung around discretely as possible behind y'all, to give you the opportunity to buy it if you were gonna. But when you put that lovely, arguably over-priced (in my mind) AR6 back down on Mike's table, I jumped on it like a hound on a bone!

Evidently I took a big bite of the MrodAir/SPA cookie.

Been under several logos even before Diana adpoted them (or at least some of them).

Never have had a PCP or co2 that eventually needed something repaired or adjusted. These haven't been bad about that, even when compared to much more expesnive airguns. Couple of those are harder to recognize as I kind of cobbled on thema bit to get them suited to a use I had in mind.

Didn't have any problem ordering from MrodAir (but it's been awhile). Not one for hand-holding and I never had much reason to call, so can't tell you how well that works out.

Shipping does take longer than many of us like. We've been spoiled by the Amazon over nite examples of shippping...it's kind of become the new normal.

Are some new ones coming out...the new repeater pistol and the return of a wood stocked co2 rifle....and there are some less common SPA products in the US that could get picked up by one distributor or another.

First ran into the SPA company (Snowpeak) in camping gear. Mostly titanium plates/bowls/ cups, etc . some years ago. Figured the Chinese were finding commercial uses for Titanium besides aircraft/rockets/space probes. Longer ago than that, actually bought a Russian Titanium prybar (which is a pretty useless way to use up a really big chunk of Titanium).

They still seem to use Ti. on airtubes for some of their (more expessive) airguns.

Started with a .177 CO2 Plinkster.  LOVE it! Aftermarket 2 stage trigger and FFHDD.  Awesome little gun with a Sun Optics Shorty 40.  Next came a .177 Dragonfly multi-pump.  Then came a Diana Chaser rifle/pistol combo in .177, then came a .22 Chaser pistol, to which I've added a shoulder stock, front aperture and rear peep.

I have yet to take the pcp dive, but these CO2 guns are remarkably well built, and a hell of a lot of fun to shoot.

Yeah..there is a, MrodAir Varmint (far right)….which would equate to a Stormrider Gen. I. It's wearing a different LDC.

 

The Generation II's have a different trigger, a better LDC than the Gen. i's, and a different shaped bolt handle. No idea if the bolt handle is actually stronger, but think it has the same threaded section as the Gen I.

Don't think I wasn't tempted to barge right in a blurt "I'll take it" while you had that AR6 in your hands David; but I'm not quite that big an ass.

And I owe Cliff an apology. I know your name is Cliff, but can't explain how I called you Clint in my previous post, Bud. My apologies!

OK, I may have a problem.

SPA

Top 3 are .177, bottom one is .22.  All the CO2 guns have FFHDDs installed.  Improves mileage by 30-35% with no loss of power.  The Plinkster and the Dragonfly are my favorites, for very different reasons.

I've had my Airmax Precision pistol for about two and a half years. No complaints.
