When AirForce Airguns’ customers asked for a fully moderated, full-sized Texan big-bore air rifle, the Fort Worth, Texas-based manufacturer listened. What resulted is the quietest version of one of the most powerful PCP air rifles in production.
Introducing the AirForce Texan LSS. With its 34” barrel and *updated TX2 valve, which produces 100 more foot-pounds of muzzle energy than its predecessor, it can hurl .45-caliber ammo in excess of 1,100 FPS at muzzle energies of up to 700+ foot-pounds, AirForce reports. And, it can do it much quieter than its older, unmoderated sibling. Before this, AirForce Airguns shooters desiring the same big-bore bite as the Texan with significantly less bark often looked to the Texan SS and its Sound-Loc System® technology. But, that option comes with lower velocities and muzzle energies that go along with an almost 10-inch shorter barrel.
“With the sport of airgun hunting growing at an exponential rate, the amount of feedback Airforce Airguns has received from hunters in the field has been nothing short of astounding,” said AirForce Airguns Director of Marketing, Cameron Brinkerhoff, in a news release announcing the Texan LSS. “With that, we have been listening to our market and found that hunters loved the sound suppression benefits of our existing SS models but wanted to achieve the same power levels as our non-suppressed, long barrel models.”
Whether you’re new to airgun hunting or are looking to add another hunting tool to your quiver, look to the AirForce Airguns Texan LSS, available in .257, .308, .357, .457, and .50 calibers. Its combination of accuracy, power and reduced report make it an ideal, humane solution for bringing home a wide variety of game.
