“falcon fn19 raptor light hunter”

Written on: 23/09/2011 by wezdavo (1 review written)

I have owned many airguns over the years and this has to be one of the best. I bought it second hand for £250, mounted a simmons 4-12 x 50 a/o and fitted a quickfill adaptor from Uttings. After trying about ten brands of pellets i decided on air arms field 5.5, which group hole on hole at 30 yards. I have even hit 2 inch spinners at 75 yards from a rest with about 8 inchs holdover!! The build quality is good, blueing is exceptional. The bolt action is smooth and presice. The trigger is ok… Read Full Review

“Sadly I sold my FN19 Lighthunter some time ago and it...”

Written on: 21/11/2009 by RRogerRabbit (8 reviews written)

Sadly I sold my FN19 Lighthunter some time ago and it was the worst thing I've ever done!

Good Points:
- Accurate
- Lightweight
- Reliable
- looks great
- Magazines are resonably priced (£11)
- decent shot capacity
- not at all pellet fussy, though H&N Exact and Barracuda Match gave the best results
- reasonably priced for a rifle of this quality

Bad points:
- Slightly noisy when shot, magazines also rattle a bit... not a big complaint though given how cheap the magazines are. As for the ring… Read Full Review

you're definitely right about cocking it with the barrel tilted upwards - bought one second hand & a lovely rifle, but it jammed & had to strip it - had to remove about five pellets from the action!

not a great start! lovely gun though & liked it so much, i bought a second one, an fn12 lighthunter.

great guns & well done falcon, when they made em.

“Common with all Falcon FN19 rifles: ”

Written on: 01/11/2009

Common with all Falcon FN19 rifles:
I see alot of you are struggling with the bolt action and pellets.
Bolt action, basically there are two minor issues with the bolt action, which is down to owner setup and usage.
1, Sometimes people let a shot off with the bolt arm lifted, this causes a blow back, and usually hammers the bolt back onto the allen/O ring screw making the slot end "Burr up". This then causes a grating effect on the bolt action, and can premeturely damage the allen/o ring… Read Full Review

This is a great rifle at 12 ft/lb, don't even try to adjust the power above that before you get your FAC. Over 12 ft/lb without an FAC puts you on a mandatory prison stretch of 5 years! It just isn't worth it

i,ll help you mate im sick of people saying dont go over 12 ft ilb , # i believe we should be able to have the law to be changed to 25ft ilb , and why not .it up power your falcon ,just take a piece of inatube cut to about 10 inches ,put a hole at bot ends , attach to front of were you fill it and connect other end to you small loading lever , it shoots the lever more powerful . sounds crazy but it works , and if the cops cum just flick your elastioc band off , my falcon is on 10ft ilbs i put the band on and im up to 20ft ilb which im happy with . no need to tamper inside gun . must be easiest gun to up power in the world try it you wont be dissapionted .

Written on: 20/10/2008

This rifle really does not need beefing up. I am FAC approved and after turning up the power on my raptor i turned it back down again its just not necessary and most over the counter air rifles are not supossed to be turned up anyway its not good for the rifle. However a Video is available (originally from tr robb i think) called tuning the titan/falcon air rifle although it does not cover this exact model the process is generally the same search falcon on ebay under hunting it cost me &pound;1.50 for a dvd (i have seen torrents for downloading this but cant remember where). <br/>I'm sure some people will say im irresponsible for telling you this but SOME FAC people think sadly they should be the only ones allowed to have this knowledge but eventually all guns will need the power adjusting as the parts wear. Also it has been recently reported to me by some fellow shooters both FAC and restricted and in gun mags that some older design full power guns (which were tuned to around 11.8) have been tipping over the 12 mark with newer more advanced pellets. Please think about the points ive made before deleting this post and remember IT IS THE SHOOTERS RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THE GUN IS NOT OVER THE LEGAL LIMIT how can they do this with out this knowledge.

I have just purchased a second hand Falcon. I am feeling back pressure coming from the barrel port end. Could anyone please tell me if there should be a rubber O ring on the pellet locator which would fit nice and snug into the barrel as there isn't one on mine.

ACTION FIT AND FINISH:
this rifle handles really well it snaps up to the eye straight away its not too heavy and its not too light either however when i bought it new from falcon the cocking bolt was crunchy and horrible this only took 2 seconds to fix (plus a few hundred pellets to wear the gun in a little) but was still annoying

I work in an outdoor supplies shop in Sussex (The Outdoorsman) and have tried many different rifles. I used my shop discount to buy the Falcon FN19 Raptor because A) it was cheap for what you get and B) it came very highly recommended.

When I got my rifle I was so struck by the gorgeous look of it, I dumped my girlfriend and have now set a date with my Raptor.

It comes with a Walther barrel and I have installed the FAC hammer-spring, bored out the ports and the chamber as been polished… Read Full Review

Scott808's Response to Hot Shot S200's Review

Written on: 22/12/2004

I don't recommend using Crosman or Bisley pellets with your falcon rifle. The Crosman pellets have a flat back that does not work with the bolt, and get pushed in to the breach on funny angles. Bisley field pellets also seem to be to short for the magazine, so also move around a lot when you push them into the breach.
<br>
<br>I'm guessing the problem is to do with precharged rifles using a bolt action, rather than it being due to the design of the bolt on the raptor.
<br>
<br>I'm currently using air arms hunters in mine.

Written on: 12/01/2005

Glad you have sorted your pellet problem because I always use Air Arms Field and find they are the best suited pellet for it. The A.A. Hunter is ok but definately not as accurate. Bisley Magnum is good in the magazine and loads well but is a bit heavy in the standard 12ft lb. Powerpels and accupels fire well but not great in the magazine or loading. Do I take it you are now happy with the rifle?

Written on: 23/12/2004

Thanks for the advise, but I found out that at sometime the breach seal had been expelled from the gun. This small item allows the bolt to seal properly and also allows the pellet to seat without catching on its way in. Falcon kindly sent me some replacements and the gun now shoots fine and is not pellet fussy as I thought.

Written on: 14/09/2004 by jon trafford (1 review written)

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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, though… Read Full Review

“I love my falcon raptor mk2 .177 ”

Written on: 05/07/2003 by neil (mr.pibb) moore. (1 review written)

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!

Written on: 12/03/2003 by Garry Jordan. (1 review written)

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 hitting… Read Full Review

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 Full Review
