While I have seen a lot of mixed opinions regarding the FPC mainly from people who have never spent time with one, I had nothing but good times testing it out.
Several years back, I took a small ring Mauser 96, in 6.5×5,5 and turned it into a scout-type rifle. It later became a more traditional rifle with normal scope mounts and a turned-down bolt. In that configuration it became my loaner, backup, knock-around rifle for friends and relatives that asked to borrow a rifle for impromptu hunts.
Umarex has had great success with the Hammer Model .50 caliber air rifle, but it was a bit cumbersome for some applications. So obviously it made sense to develop a carbine version. This makes the rifle easier to hold up while shooting offhand, easier to maneuver while hunting, and a lot handier in confined spaces [...]
If you want to hunt big game with an AR, the SFAR may be the answer to your prayers.
I love the little Rancher Carbine. I have a ton of fun with it, but it’s a weird gun. It doesn’t do anything exceptionally well outside of being a fun novelty. It’s plenty reliable, has low recoil, has a great trigger, and is affordable. If you want a fun, albeit somewhat useless rifle, then the Rancher Carbine has you covered.
The Semi-Auto Benjamin Marauder might be the nearest stand-in for the .22-caliber firearms we used to know and love. The Marauder can push a 14.3-grain pellet 900 feet-per-second (fps) at the muzzle, making it powerful enough to take small game and accurate enough to hit a one-inch target at 50 yards.
The new Savage Arms IMPULSE rifles are a whole new breed of rifle that raises the market to a new level. It’s really slick, very fast to operate, incredibly accurate; perhaps the most accurate rifle I have ever shot.
Ruger came out swinging with a 9mm Pistol Caliber Carbine last year, with a design that rocked us back on our heels. Building on that success, they have just released a new chassis version, with all the bells and whistles.
The American made SIG Sauer ASP20 is the most advanced break barrel system in the world. SIG’s new high-performance gas-piston break barrel air rifle delivers great terminal energy and accuracy with minimal cocking effort.
For a shooting match at close range, the Nightstick would absolutely burn it down. And that aside, it is incredibly fun to shoot. Not to mention a gaggle of firepower, in a very small package.
