    Edgun Matador R3m PCP Rifle

    VERY rare opportunity to buy an Edgun Matador in NZ. This one is the multi shot, long edition which has a larger air tank, a longer stock and a longer LW barrel. I have installed the Huma "power kit" which consists of a larger valve plenum and a smaller more efficient regulator - the kit also comes with a hammer weight but I haven't needed this in its current power tune as it is not needed unless you chase more power. This bulpup comes with its factory provided soft bag, fill probe and 6 magazines, no scope or bipod included.

    This PCP air rifle is very easily tuned and can be set anywhere from 12fpe power output up to over 60fpe. In its current tune it is set for Edgun 18.1 gr pellets at 912 fps which is 33.5 fpe and it runs very consistent and very efficient getting more than 120 shots before it gets down to the reg pressure of 95bar, this is because of the longer barrel and the huma power upgrade kit.

    This is a very desirable rifle and known by most in the industry as about as good as it gets, there are only a handful of these in the country and they don't really come up for sale second hand. Ed builds his rifles to the highest standards of quality with pride. It is a very capable hunting setup and I have head shot rabbits at 120m with confidence. It is quiet, powerful, accurate, has more than enough shot count for a long walk, and did I mention it looks great?

    This is on Trademe at the moment with a $2400 reserve. From what I have seen on overseas sales this is competitively prices and as its already here you wont be paying shipping and GST etc on it. https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Lis...?id=1828504938

    As far as I can tell this is the first time one has been on the market second hand in the country so a little hard to figure that one out. RRP here was $3200 from memory plus the cost of the Huma power kit and a few extra mags. I have seen used ones listed in USA for $1450usd and in the UK for £1450gbp plus all the shipping and tax so I think my reserve fits in below what it would cost to get one here.

    Price dropped to $2k, I will take that much from a forum member directly until there has been any bids on trademe.

    They have to be .22 cal at that weight.
    Could well be relabelled JSB Exact Diablo Heavies, also sold as Cometas

    Spot on, the Edgun pellets are made using better dies and better sorting systems but are essentially the jsb design.

    The Matador is now sold thanks
