Reminds me of the old AirBow. Haven't seen one of those in a long time.

I wonder if there is a way to increase FPS?

450 fps is nothing to sneeze at.

I'm getting 290 fps with a 420gr arrow and a 70lb draw weight. My draw length is only 26.5", so I lose speed there. I'm using 125gr broad heads.

I'm more than adequate for anything that you can hunt in North America, including the big bears. At around 260fps, you're getting pass throughs on elk, assuming a reasonable arrow weight.

Most game and fish departments haven't fully classified these yet, and tend to push them into the Muzzleloader seasons...

I'm going to see if I can hold one in person before buying.

They have a factory down in Ft.Smith Arkansas but not sure where this particular one is made.

I'm considering one for target practice and if course use it hunting if needed.

Of course the state G&FC here probably won't know which season to put it under so may not allow it.

So what would be the accuracy of something like this, could you take a deer at 100 yds?

I would think you could take them at further than 100 yds.

In theory, I could take a deer at 100 yds with my bow. I've practiced to that distance, but personally 60yds is my limit.

I practice long shots (70+) to highlight all the mistakes I make.

Though if a 400 class bull elk is standing broadside at 80 yard, I'd think about it....depending on the conditions I'd take the shot. It would have to be just right for it to be an ethical shot.

I think I'll get one and screw the compressor or taking the filler tank to get it charged. The rifle, manual pump and a pack or two of extra arrows and I get some target practice and a work out as well.
