aeac's 2018 "most memorable"

Umarex Gauntlet .22

image16

German based Umarex decided the airgun rule book needed a change in 2018 and introduced the industry's first $300 regulated PCP.  At 46" long and 9 lbs ready to go, it's no pigmy but no one can deny this Chinese made airgun's excellent tunability, great accuracy, and solid regulator performance.  Out of the box expect about 65 regged shots at 23 fpe.

AEAC video review

FX Wildcat Mk2 .25

image17

Compact, powerful, versatile, and refined come to the tune of $1,300 but with all that Swedish goodness also comes 60 regulated shots at 43 fpe.  But wait, there's more... an interchangeable barrel liner system allows ya to own just one gun and easily change between calibers.  The synthetic stock version is lighter but this one is 9 lbs ready to rock and measures 33.5".  Accuracy is superb and so is anything that moves.


AEAC video review

Diana Outlaw .22

image18

German manufacturer Diana wanted in on the reasonably priced regulated PCP action too and partnered with Chinese mega company, Snow Peak Airguns to get it done.  For $500 ya get a sleek beechwood stock, smooth side lever cocking, great accuracy and an engine tuned to 45 regulated shots at 28 fpe.  It weighs just 8 lbs shoot ready and comes in at 41.5"

AEAC video review

Hatsan Flash Pup .22

image19

An easy stand out this year, Hatsan's Flash Pup measures a mere 32" long and weighs just 7.9 lbs scoped & aired.  $400 buys ya a simple yet handsome wood stock, buttery cycling & shooting, and 25 shots at 31 fpe.  Accuracy from this Turkish made pup is excellent and if you don't like bullups, check out their carbine.  It's just as good and costs $100 less on account of it's synthetic stock.

Air Arms TX200 .177

image20

Spring guns come in two categories, cheap and expensive.. with the better ones costing about twice as much.  The $630 English made TX200 blew my mind with its fixed barrel, side breech, underlever cocking and superb manners.  At 42.25" and 10.2 lbs as ya see it here, it's not for wimps but its crazy-good trigger, excellent accuracy, and drop-dead gorgeous stock made it memorable indeed.  Expect about 16 fpe and a ton of quality.

aeac video review

Weihrauch HW95 .22

43"

Weihrauch Sport has been in the arms business since before the first World War and they've been making airguns almost as long.  The German made 95 isn't new but it's still as good as any.  $500 gets ya 18 fpe, a slick break barrel action, an incredible Rekord trigger, and excellent accuracy.  Scoped, it weighs 9.2 lbs and it's 43" long.  Quality, fit, and finish are over the top.

AEAC's go-to pellets

JSB Exact King

image22

Dominating world wide shooting competitions as much as it does the hunting scene, the Exact King has become the industry standard for long range accuracy.  Beware of its soft lead however as not all airguns will like them... especially springers.  FX's Smooth Twist  barrels are designed around this load and they do best in the 850-875 fps range.

H&N Sport Baracuda

image23

Also known for it's excellent accuracy and to be a Lothar Walther barrel favorite, the Baracuda offers a harder alloy composition.  This can be beneficial when seeking skull crushing penetration in hunting scenarios as well as with airguns that don't play well with soft lead.

Predator Polymag

image24

I've been able to do a lot of 50 yard ballistic gelatin testing over the past year and nothing on the market penetrates & expands as well as the Polymag.  Some guns shoot it as well as the JSB King but most will group just average with it.  The key to success is keeping velocity down.

JSB Exact King Heavy

image25

As with the King, the King Heavy can also be found winning shooting competitions where big money is on the line.  It's extra heft means that you can turn up the power to buck the wind yet remain under that 925 fps hard deck for the best accuracy.  That extra power is also attractive to hunters trying to reach out to 100 yards and beyond.

H&N Sport Baracuda Hunter

image26

Many don't know this but the Baracuda Hunter will often outperform its big brother the Baracuda.  How or why I couldn't tell ya but they're a must-have permanent fixture for the airgunners arsenal.  Expansion is good, accuracy is often excellent, and their harder alloy makes them a good fit for airguns that chew up the softer stuff.

Predator GTO

image27

Lead free alternatives have become of great importance to youth shooting programs as well as to the conservationist hunter.  I've found the GTO to be crazy accurate out of most every airgun... so long as they don't exceed 925 fps.  The key to their success is a hard alloy composition that's modeled after the JSB King but doesn't deform in transport.  I've had great success with them all the way out to 100 yards but they blow around quite a bit in the lightest of winds.
