New Carbon Fiber Tanks For AirForce Texan
Thanks to a new carbon fiber tank and valve system, all 4 members of the AirForce Texan family just got a power boost.
The new CF-series Texan air rifles are now capable of energy levels of up to 750 Ft/Lbs with a 520 Grain projectile in .457 caliber. This is a new level of power from any air rifle and keeps the Texan family as the world’s most powerful production air rifles, says the company.
The new carbon fiber tank, is slightly smaller in physical size. It’s also lighter than the aluminum tanks by about half a pound. However it holds 3625 psi or 250 BAR of air, which gives the Texan more power.
That power increase opens up hunting of larger game by delivering a heavy projectile to the target with up to 750 Ft/Lbs of energy, which is more than enough to take a whitetail down with a single shot, says AirForce.
AirForce Founder and CEO John McCaslin commented that, “At AirForce,we are constantly looking to improve our air rifles and make them more powerful. It is what we do.” McCaslin went on to say that, “The power increases are just getting started as we examine new technologies in both air tanks and valve systems.”
Since its release in 2015 the AirForce Texan has been the most powerful production air rifle on the market. With the 2019 season substantially increasing the number of states allowing air rifles as a legal method of take for big game, the Texan has seen more success in the hands of hunters than ever before.
The Air Force Texan family has grown from the Original Texan to now include the sound suppressed TexanSS, the short barrel Texan Carbine and the TexanLSS which is a sound suppressed Texan with a full length barrel.
