  1. Modded Benjamin Trail NP break open pistol in .177 caliber. This pistol has been completely modified from stock and is now a tack driver. Fires an alloy pellet at 625 ft/sec and a lead pellet at 525 ft/sec. Awesome plinking or pest control pistol. Powered by a nitro piston system so no pumping involved. I enjoy modding and consider it a hobby of mine and now am looking to mod a PCP pistol so my loss is your gain. I have quite a bit of time and more money invested than my listed price. I have done the following in this mod: 1. Stock was camo dipped 2. Problematic stock open sights were removed along with cocking assist 3. Muzzle brake was added to quiet and soften recoil and use as cocking assist 4. Added dovetail rings with red dot scope and flip open caps 5. Vastly improved trigger pull 6. Resolved barrel droop Awesome little air of a kind.....first $150 offers/trades Ron(585)626-8814
  2. Perfect as a starter and the 410 adapters are pretty slick allowing the youngster to start with 410 then progress to 20 gauge...kinda 2 guns in 1
  3. Thanks for the Thanks for your interest.I will be adding pics soon. Not sure if my FFL will ship.I will ask him if he will ship to another FFL and get back to you. If not looks like you are in Buffalo,NY so the ride wouldnt be too bad.They are perfect for the youngsters and the 410 adapters can get them real comfortable with the shotguns if they are just starting out.
  4. I have a twin set of Hatfield 20 gauge single shot shotguns that I bought for my boys last year and they have no interest in them. Both come in factory box,one has never been shot and the other has less than a box of ammo field tested through it by me. Folding style,very light,mild recoil and also has a ventilated rib. I am also including a set of bore adapters which allows 410 ammo to be shot also. I use an FFL super close by in Ontario,NY that does long gun transfers for $15 per shotgun. First $200 cash for the pair including adapters or $125 cash for one including adapter. Ron(585)626-8814
  5. Yeah its an awesome setup and Ive priced it well.Thanks and good hunting!!!
  6. I have a 28" Prohunter Encore 209x50 muzzleloader barrel for sale.It is stainless/fluted and has been shot very very little and is in excellent condition. Included is one piece scope mount and 1.5-4.5 x32 camo Bushnell scope(circle X reticle). This barrel has the easy twist off breech plug requiring no tools and makes it super easy to clean bore. Very,very accurate barrel. This barrel fits the original encore frame,prohunter frame and endeavor frame. I no longer muzzleload hunt so I have no need for it. About $450 invested in whole setup.......first $275 cash. Ron(585)626-8814
  7. ATTENTION: I have 2 of these crossbows left so if you are still looking I can set one up ready to shoot.Thanks
  8. Received my new toy on Friday.Can't wait to shoot it!!!!
  9. Shawnhu I saw that and cancelled my preorder for the Airbow and repurchased it w/15% off w/free shipping on leap year/day.These days every little savings counts.
  10. Is the air bow a gun or a bow? Neither. Should it be allowed to hunt with in only regular big game season or any season including archery?When it comes down to it the DEC will make its decision by determining whether they consider the air bow as a firearm or archery equipment.The DEC has already classified the crossbow as archery equipment.The air bow fires an arrow which means it has its limitations(less than 40 yards) and is a close encounter type weapon exactly like a 400fps shooting crossbow.With the air bow the arrow slides on a tubular rail that guides the arrow while the crossbow has a grooved rail that guides the arrow.Both the air bow and crossbow allow the hunter to have a preloaded weapon that has a stock and requires the pull of a trigger to release the arrow.One does it with the force of air and one does it with the force of limbs.Both the air bow and crossbow kill with a broad head through blood hemoraging.It is pretty obvious that this air bow will eventually be considered archery equipment just like the crossbow and not a firearm.A firearm has much greater range as it fires an aerodynamic bullet at blazing speeds down a barrel through ignition and kills with the shock of the bullet.In fact I think the crossbow resembles the air bow a lot more than the crossbow resembling the compound or longbow.Just my two cents.
  11. Grouse Obviously you think hunting is a test of one's skill and I agree with you to an extent, however there are many hunters who could care less about the challenge involved in taking a deer and would jump at any advantage they could as long as they put meat in the freezer.We all hunt for different reasons so as long as we satisfy our own love for the hunt let's not worry or bash the others who hunt for whatever reason.
  12. We can go on and on with this but the fact is that is my opinion and I respect your opinion.I have been hunting many years and that is how I feel and it comes down to the individual on what hunting means to that person.I have NO issues with someone hunting with an air bow during archery season when obviously you one is right or wrong but don't be surprised when that air bow is legal to hunt with during archery in NY state.Remember the day when the long bow archer was ticked about the compound? then came along the crossbow which shoots an arrow propelled by limbs but fired with a trigger now an air bow which shoots an arrow propelled by air and fired with a trigger......change is inevitable so we must accept it and continue to enjoy our love for hunting.
