Taipan

Taipan is secured by the Czech company BULLET PROJECT s.r.o. Idea of producing our own air rifle was born during a meeting with two aeronautical engineers from Kiev. Shooting is our greatest hobby, the construction of our own air rifles was our dream. The development took for four years when producer designed each component from the trigger mechanism to the special anti-double feed mechanism. It is also worth to mention that one of them was in the development team of the legendary Antonov aircraft.

 

For easier conditions, production has moved to the Czech Republic. Here, we are carrying out 100% of rifles assembly, strict quality control and accuracy. Taipans are dispatched from Hlucin's headquarters where they are also serviced. Our main goal of the brand is to offer the maximum functionality and great design. The accuracy is guaranteed mainly by Lothar Walther and CZ barrels from Česká zbrojovka. Stocks were designed in a place where they can do it best: wooden laminated in Italy, wooden beech in Spain. Taipans leave the Czech Republic with their own ID card and a target with grouping on 40 meters. The company is standing by their rifles and staff. The proof is that in each piece you will find the name of a man who has tested it.

Nicer than the current stocks. Hopefully they won't add too much to the price.

HA

Action is a copy. Taipan is still made  Ukraine , Czech copied the taipan design according to a discussion at Agn. Wouldn’t mind having that stock though 😎

Copied the design, the presumably trademarked logo and name and then set up a stand at IWA 2019 touting same?  That would take some serious stones...

IMO, if Taipan has not moved production to CZ entirely then at least there must be some sort of licensing/contract deal.

 

Edit: Confirmed directly with Dimi. Taipan CZ makes the airguns under contract for Taipan Ukraine.

Hello Guys,

I have made a video about the truth of new Taipan Veteran which has sign of " Made in Czech Republic ". I hope that I make it clear about this finally since there are many wrong ideas about this. They are not any fakes or how someone calls it 😉
