Had mine 2 years now. Although its my first and only PCP, I cant imagine any other air rifle any more accurate than my tarantula. Shooting 15.9gr JSBs at 878 fps sub-inch 50 yd groups, five eights 40 yd groups. Likes the 18gr JSBs very well also. My major complaint is the noise. Quite a bit louder than I would like. Kind of heavy, but seems like most air rifles are. Cant ever see myself parting with her. Oh yeah, I named her Lucille.

I’ve owned the Fx Tarantula for about 5 years in .22 and love it. It’s a very well constructed and accurate PCP rifle. One of the nice features, is that it does has an adjustable gas port whereby you can control the amount of power. Depending on the pellet in use, the range appears to be between 600-820 fps. I’ve got mine cranked out to the max. Since air rifles tend to ‘like’ certain pellet designs and weights at specific velocity, you can tune in to find the most accurate combination.

The only negative with this air rifle is it has a very loud gas valve report, as the pellets are traveling at sub-sonic velocity.
