    Looks like they sell for $599. I am interested but am wondering how you charge it. Does it use CO2 or air and how does the air get in the gun. Here is a used one on gunbroker http://www.gunbroker.com/auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=142550041

    It uses a compressed air charge from a scuba tank. Google it and look at Pyramd Air as they have a manual for it. I posted the link above.

    Just for information, Lewis and Clark took large bore air rifles along with them on thier expedition to the west. I am sure they were under gunned when they met the grizzlies. LOL

    They've been featured on a relatively new show on one of the outdoor channels, "American Airgunner". They had one in fifty cal and took a goat or some such "big" game at about a hundred yards.
