The Falcon FN19 Raptor Mk2 Skelton is a great quality gun at a great price. It has a capacity of an 8 shot magazine, it is extremely accurate over 35 to 40 yards, it has an easy fill system with the quick fill silencer. The bad things about the gun is the shot capacity is not that high, the trigger is a bit sticky and crunchy and when you are walking around you seem to catch the bolt on your pocket and load two pellets. Apart from that the gun is great. Jon Trafford (read more)

Build quality and engineering are not the best in the world but this reflects in the price, being far from the most expensive tool available. Falcon are always happy to talk and helpful. The gun is very accurate and easy to use in the field, it is light but seems well balanced. (read more)

i have had this Falcon FN19 a little over 2 months now and i have to say that as an intro to PCP's i couldnt have had better.this is my first rifle and has given me a keen interest in hunting probably due to its accuracy [i hit clusters the size of postage stamps at 50 yds]and its killability.
i got the gun secondhand with scope,bipod,sling,hand-pump,for £300 and its worth every penny.it took minutes to zero at 25 yds but i soon realized that 35 yds was a better zero distance for the gun and... (read more)

Ive been toying with the idea of buying a Falcon FN19 Raptor Mk2 Skelton for a while now, but after reading all the reviews here it has kinda put me off buying one now. Why you might ask?... Well for a start I own the 8" version which is an absolutely beautiful piece of kit. The gun only measures just under 70cm from butt to tip, and with the additional long silencer from falcon it measures approx 87cm. Its basically the same as the 19" version, same breach, magazine, bolt action etc,... (read more)

I love my falcon raptor mk2 .177
the walnut skeleton stock is awsome.I have a small build frame so it fits me perfect,very easy to shoulder and aim for a long time if needed. With h&n barracuda match pellets the accuracy could not be better. The power is at 17 foot pounds,with the scope sighted at 25 yards, i can hit the target at 50 with only a half inch holdover.
I cant wait for the new t-bird to come out. If you dont have a falcon, then buy two!

I absolutely love my Falcon FN19 Raptor, i go shooting with it at least once a week. It's very light weight and easy to handle. the bolt action works very smoothly and the only time i have had any trouble with loading it was when i was using bad pellets, i even got 1/2 inch group at 35 yards with it they other week so i no it's very accurate, and also it's got to be one of the best looking air rifles around. The only thing that i can find that would even slightly put me off buying another... (read more)

I really like this Falcon rifle it feels good and and solid and looks great, I use it regularly for hunting, I thought the size of the pneumatic chamber would be too small but i have found it to be a decent size and holds about 60 full power shots. I use dynamic pcp2 pellets and it chronys right on 12 ft/lbs. After buying this rifle and using it for a few months I have alot of confidence in the ability of this rifle and would reccommend it to anyone. Also it can be a pain reloading the... (read more)

Purchased (imported) in May 2002 in .22 Cal FAC,the gun has continued to impress each time I take it out. It is very accurate and leaves me with great confidence in every shot I take. It takes 16 shots (2 mags) to reduce the cylinder pressure from 3000 psi to 2000 psi, after which the accuracy starts to fall off. For my type of shooting, this is fine - I'm never far from base camp and the filling tank. The gun shoots 16 gr. JSB pellets at 840 fps (approx 25 ft lbs), which is plenty of... (read more)

If you wipe the gun finish with a silicon cloth before and after you use the gun and this will help to protect the gun when rampaging through fields and woods on those important hunting trips. happy hunting ps; could anybody measure the lb/ft on their falcon and e-mail the results. cheers (read more)

The Falcon FN19 Raptor Mk2 Skelton is a first class hunting gun - lightweight so it can be carried for hours without a problem. This gun is very pointable and I have taken out vermin at 40 yards with ease.
This gun will give you pellet on pellet holes at 25 yards with the use of a rest.
Very Easy to use with a good magazine that will give you 8 shots in .22.
The only problem I find with this gun is when it is removed from the stock for cleaning etc, it`s fiddly lining the gun back up to the... (read more)
