FALCON FN19 RAPTOR PCP .177 (4.5MM) SECTION ONE AIR RIFLE
Falcon FN Raptor .177 (4.5mm) PCP, SECTION ONE, Multi 8 shot Air rifle sending out Webley Accupell at an average speed of just under 970 ft/sec. This should be easy enough to increase but in reality the higher it goes the faster the cylinder needs refilling!
Set into the ‘double cut out’ skeleton style Walnut stock with a 14” pull and adjustable height butt pad. This has also been fitted with a quick fill / attachment adaptor and comes with the original sound moderator giving an overall barrel length of 28”. There are a couple of VERY minor marks to the stock but otherwise exceptionally clean throughout.
These rifles are / were made by NSP Engineering who produce all of the Air Arms range. The Falcon rifles were actually supplied direct into the retail trade through a very limited number of outlets (of which we were always very pleased to be included). As such there was always a reasonable assumption amongst trade and public that leaving out the ‘middle man’ (in this case John Rothery Wholesale, who act as suppliers to the retail trade and as such ‘stick their cut’ into the mix for Air Arms). The difference left a lot of room for a better build quality in both materials and design etc. NOT that there is anything wrong with either make, it’s just a point to detail that might appeal to some.
