Thanks for posting this Popeye, I am an avid air gunner and have a modern PCP. Mine is a .25 cal and puts out about 45 FPE @ 770 FPS with a 33.95 gr. pellet. These guns are a lot of fun to shoot and are perfect for pest control. Not cheap though and it's one of those hobbies that becomes a bottomless pit.

Thanks Popeye! Very interesting. It led me to look for more info on early air guns. Here's a Youtube video on the Pritchard. The narrator is very good as is the video.

It's what stopped me from going PCP, nice guns but priced at the level of cartridge guns plus you have to get all the stuff ( special compressor or scuba tank etc) I went real guns instead. I still enjoy my Co2 air gun in my basement though

Yes they are expensive. Mine ran me around $800 for gun/air tank. I still have a Diana 34 in .22cal springer that I also shoot quite a bit. I've had some fantastic springers but sold them.
