The Czech manufacturer AirMaks has just introduced a brand-new model named after the Black Sea shark – the Katran.
This is the HP (High Power) version which offers a larger volume of Power Plenum and its barrel without a choke has been especially designed for slugs. You can of course still use standard pellets.
AirMaks Katran is a lightweight PCP air rifle with folding aluminium buttstock. It has an overall weight of a little over 2,8 kg. The CNC machined buttstock can be folded to the left side with just one press of the button and is held in place by a magnet. The cheek rest and buttpad are made from durable ABS polymer.
The action is simply amazing. You can cock the rifle with one finger and without having to take your eyes off the target. The side lever has incredibly smooth action and short travel. You have the option to take it off and attach it to the left side. This model is also outfitted with a mechanism that prevents double feeds.
The barrel has a length of 520 mm and is outfitted with a sound moderator. You can add more baffles to make it even more effective or use any sound moderator with the 1/2 UNFx20 thread.
The air cylinder has a capacity of 480 cc and a maximum fill pressure of 300 Bar. The forearm with KeyMod slots is attached directly to the cylinder. This pushes the overall balance of the rifle slightly forward. The 22 mm Weaver rail will allow you to attach a scope.
The magazine has a capacity of fourteen .25 caliber pellets (6,35 mm). The trigger is fully adjustable.
The AR-15 pistol grip offers great ergonomic properties. The manual safety is located on the left side of the body and you can even control it with the buttstock folded.
AirMaks Katran comes in a practical padded case.
