Coming Soon. The RAW MicroHunter PCP Air Rifle

The RAW MicroHunter PCP air rifle was first announced at the 2023 SHOT Show, as HAM readers saw here. Now it’s on the Pyramyd Air website with availability listed for this month (May).

The MicroHunter joins a number of other compact PCP air rifles that have entered the market recently. The Umarex Notos is another example, although at a very different price point.

It’s probably fair to say that this trend for compact, carbine-length PCPs started with the Brocock (now BRK) Ranger that appeared in 2021. Like the MicroHunter, the Ranger – and following models from Brocock – are dedicated for hunting and pest control in locations where there’s limited space to carry or deploy the airgun.

The overall length is just 27 Inches and the un-scoped weight 5.6 Lbs.

As previously revealed, the RAW MicroHunter PCP air rifle is to be available in three calibers: .177, .22 and .25. Pyramyd Air is showing up to 65 shots per fill and a maximum Muzzle Energy of 16 Ft/Lbs for the .177 caliber model.

In .22 caliber, the numbers are 30 shots and 23 Ft/Lbs, while the .25 caliber model peaks at 28.4 Ft/Lbs also with 30 shots. These are strong numbers from a gun with a 210cc HPA tank that’s filled to 3,000 PSI. That’s a relatively low pressure for a new PCP in 2023 and will be welcomed by those who prefer to fill their air rifles using a hand pump.

The MicroHunter is available with a choice of left- and right-hand actions. There’s also an AR-style pistol grip while the buttstock offers a choice of pull lengths and ambidextrous, adjustable cheekpiece.

Both M-LOK slots and Picatinny rails are provided for attaching bipods and other accessories. Scope mounting is undertaken using traditional airgun rails, however.
