(Fort Worth, TX – January 16, 2017)
View/Print Official Press Release
AirForce Airguns will be introducing the sound suppressed TexanSS Air Rifle in .45 caliber at the 2017 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
The AirForce Texan set the high bar for pre-charged pneumatic air rifles when introduced at the 2015 SHOT Show. The new air rifle is the much quieter version of the AirForce Texan, which remains the world’s most powerful production air rifle. The TexanSS is slightly smaller – and a lot quieter - than its full throated namesake.
“Within an hour of finishing the original Texan, we were at work on the sound suppressed version,” commented AirForce CEO and Founder John McCaslin. “We wanted to minimize sound while retaining as much of the Texan’s power as we could. This air rifle strikes that balance perfectly.”
The TexanSS features a precision rifled 24.75 inch barrel that will push a lead projectile to deliver up to 400 foot pounds – quietly. The rifle has an overall length of 45 inches and features the patented side lever action for easy loading and cocking.
“Every time we design a new gun or a new version of an existing rifle, we ask how we can make it better,” remarked McCaslin. “With TexanSS, we found a way to combine the power, reliability and usability in the field that we would expect from any good hunting rifle. Minus the sound.”
AirForce Airguns has been innovating, designing and producing precision pre-charged air guns at their Fort Worth, Texas headquarters for over 15 years. In 2016, AirForce opened a new state of the art factory in Texas to keep up with the growing demand and integrate the newest manufacturing techniques.
AirForce is known for developing the most technologically advanced airgun shooting systems in the world and is the original and favorite black airgun. With a reputation for flexibility and legendary accuracy, AirForce Airguns offers a solution for just about any airgun shooting situation.
Serious airgunning starts at AirForce Airguns.
