Tried JSB 13.4 but they didn't fare well in my gun. Too heavy for Achilles I think.

Namaskar Satvender Ji,

It is expected anytime soon. I believe they may have sent it to some users for testing the magazine. you may contact them to provide a demo magazine. Every PCP gun is accompanied by a singleshot tray and 1 or 2 Magazine along with it. unfortunately they didn't. I hope they should provide it free of cost or with very nominal charge for existing Achilles users.

Regards

Mayank

(Eagerly waiting for UMAREX GAUNTLET: $300 regulated PCP gun)

quite disheartening, Achilles is an expensive gun by certain aspects and a complimentary MAG is always desirable, at least for those who have bought it. I hope precihole notice this and act compassionately.

Regards,

Mayank

Came across a post on a face Facebook page named "Royal outdoors" offering Achilles for sale with the following description

---------------->
Looking at the price and description looks like folks who purchased quite early seem to have paid more as GST has decreased the prices(which has been pointed out by few previously). Whether the magazine is being given as a addon by the vendor or if the magazine is been given as a part of the standard kit by precihole themselves? If by precihole, well that would really add up to a huge loss and too much frustration.
Checked precihole website it is not available in their accessories list.ImageImage

Have been using the px100 with the mags for sometime now. Personally, the mags have been a blessing in terms of convenience. Loading single pellets with the scope attached was a rather fiddly affair and broke the flow while shooting.

The accuracy seems to be the same with the mag as it was while loading individual pellets into the breech. The only significant difference while using the mags, is the amount of air and pellets used during one plinking session. I ended up using at least 3 times more pellets and air than while shooting single shot :P

The magazine is nice and small. Have shot few hundred pellets till now with not a single malfunction.

The only cons I could list out was the shot count and the slightly fiddly loading. But both of these can be understood given the cost constraint and the simplicity required to meet that constraint. The problem of low shot count can be easily solved by getting multiple magazines. Personally I think 8 is the right number of magazines to have :D

All in all the addition of the magazines makes the PX a well rounded product.

From the pictures it seems as if one would still need a medium profile rings to use the magazines.

Hey! I have an NX100 club elite and I am looking to buy a PX100 achilles, can you tell me how are you refilling the tank? The pump is very expensive and I am not sure about the scuba/oxygen tank option.

Can you give me some suggestions?

A High Pressure Hand Pump or Compressor or a SCBA Tank are the only options to fill a PCP Airgun.
kiehberg.in recently introduced a hand pump for PCP for about 12k.

No. The gsmith 35 spring will not fit in your gun. Even gsmith 27 will not fit.

Added in 1 hour 7 minutes 8 seconds:
A liitle clarification- the top hat of precihole and spring guide will not fit with gsmith 27 spring, thus it will not work with orion .22 piston.

Hey! you can go for scuba tank capacity 6-8 kg. it will cost you around 10k filling 300 bar will cost u 60-70 Rs everytime. or you can buy pump as GNV said.. though every time you got to push 200 times your pump to fill 1 PCP... :lol:

Can tuning the hammer spring (like giving it more tension using an o-ring) of the px100 increase the velocity?
