    I was looking at the Texan SS in 308 or the Vulcan in 30 because I have the Vulcan in .25 all ready I was pretty set on the Vulcan. So I called Tony and asked him for his opinion and then decided on the SS Texan in .308. He had two in stock but before buying i asked what he recommended as an add on. He said drop down adapter for the bottle and the carbonfiber tank up grade. I went with just the drop down tank adapter and the fill port cap. Tony was great he shipped it out in a very reasonable time even though he installsd the adapter on the tank and checked for leaks. He sent it on a Monday and I got it Wednesday that was a great surprise. When I opened the box I was surprised again by how awesome it looks. It’s awesome not too heavy but it is a sold gun not dainty at all. Once I put the tank on and mounted my scope I shoulder the beast and with the drop adapter it is perfect for mid rise scope rings. I am using the hawke 4-12×50 HD and it fits perfect. With permission I went to a construction site out of town and sighted it in and had it dialed in 3 shots at about 30yrds then stretched it out to around a 100yrds. Man am I so happy this is a great shooting gun. I shot 50grn jsb, air Venturi 118 and 134 with out any issues at all full power. I get 4 shots with the jsbs within an 1 1/2 group then the pressure drops and the groups open up to about 3in. Seems like the jsbs love the twist rate of the barrel asking as you are at full power.The air Venturi slug group around the same 1 1/2 as the jsbs and what’s crazy is there is only a mil drop between the jsbs and the slugs again power adjuster at full. There is 8-10 very usable shots in a fill to 2800psi down to 2000psi. I love this gun it has so much power I can’t translate it into words. If you want a hunting rifle that is legal in Texas to hunt deer sized game this is it and it is quiet. Just want to say Thanks Tony for swaying me toward the Texan it is exactly what I was looking for.

    I wanted a .30 cal in my collection and had narrowed it down to between the Texan SS .308 or the Vulcan .30. I have a Vulcan that I bought from Tony so I was pretty much set on that but knowing that the Vulcan out of the box does not have the required Flbs of energy to hunt larger game in Texan I called Tony to get his thoughts and am now a very proud owner of the Texan SS .308 . So with Tony’s recommendation I added the tank drop down adapter and fill port cap. Wow this thing is everything I had hoped for! I installed a hawke 4-12×50 HD scope with mid rise mounts and it shoulders perfect for me. Tony’s drop down adapter is the key item with that. So with permission I drove to a construction site out of town and set up a 3/4 piece of plywood against a dirt berm to sight it in. 3 shots and it was dialed. This thing passes through the 3/4 plywood like it is paper the board doesn’t even twitch on impact. At 30yrds it stacks jsb 50’s at full power and about the same with air Venturi 113 and 134 slugs! The calving is freaking awesome. So next I moved the target out to around 100+\- yrds and shot a few groups. I am really impressed. With jsbs I’m getting 1.5 to 2in groups and the same with the slugs. The jsbs are moving so fast that my point of aim from 30 to 100 is 1 milldot amd 4 mills with the slugs. I will say that if I shoot more that 4 shot the curve drops and so do the pellets and slug but still rip through the plywood with ease. I talking about being able to take out squirrel sized game at 100yrds and that with out a bipod just leaned over the tailgate awkwardly. I am certain this will get better from here as I settle in with the rifle. I have to be honest though the trigger needs some work because it’s heavy and has a long first stage out of the box. Even still I can’t take away a star because it’s just an awesome rifle.
