.177, walnut lighthunter, 8 shot mags, consistant 5p groups at 30m with accupell and jsb exacts 4.52, reliable, no problems, had detwanger fitted, quick fill, hw silencer and good quality 3-12x50 scope. this is one mean machine (looks the part too!). cannot recomend highly enough, and british. the ultimate sub 12ftlb hunting rifle. i find it best to fill to 200bar.

Have had my Falcon FN19 .177 left hand skeleton stock for nearly ten years and cannot fault it. I regularly take out rabbits at 45 yards, in fact the gun is so accurate that ANY rabbit in the sights is as good as dead. The gun (using a rest) will easily group pellet on pellet at forty yards. Someone queried the type of pellet to use in one review. I can only say that as the gun was designed for using Bisley Magnums then that is what I use, and have no complaints! (read more)

Because the Falcon FN12 is quite small and light, it does not have the greatest accuracy. Infact, it is actualy less accurate than my AirArms S200 which was £300 less. But it still gets quite good accuracy. I get about the spread of a 2p coin at 40yards where i got a 5p coin spread with my S200. But to be honest, i think i got lucky and got a slightly better built s200 than average.
As for the shot capacity, i get about 50-60 when filling it to the 95 psi that the manual recommends. But to... (read more)

Just got my Falcon FN12. Great gun, great accuracy, mega light and the bunnies just hate it! I've had several different types of guns and I rate this against any of them and they include Daystate mk3 rt , Theoben mfr air arms, s410 tdr air arms and the only gun in my honest opinion that comes close was my Logun axor, but it was much heavier, so all in Falcon FN12 comes out well on top.

My brother purchased one of these a few months ago at first sight the gun looks impresive, and picking it up the first thing you notice is how light it is, (hence the light hunter I suppose).
Next you notice how nice it feels in the hand and upon firing you realise what a nice piece of kit this gun is. Very quiet, no recoil (of course being a pcp) and accurate. I borrowed it for a week when he went on holiday recently, and can truly say it made me regret buying my Falcon PF18 MP (well... (read more)

The Falcon FN12 is based on an older design than many PCP airgun models currently on the market. Despite the FN12's age, its performance is still up to par with newer PCPs. High quality PCPs are all very similar in performance so picking the one with the attributes to best suit your needs is difficult. The FN12 can do almost everything I expect of a PCP so it really pleases me.

I picked my Falcon FN12 Raptor 8 shot up on saturday second hand and I was stunned that I managed to find it for the price I did. Ok, I went in there thinking I was going to buy a BSA Spitfire, but after handling that (and see a knackered seal on a brand new rifle) and seeing the Raptor, I was sold. I managed to chop 50 quid off the price the guy wanted too, so I am very happy.
The first thing I did was take the rifle to my local dive shop and get a fill. That proved that it took air and... (read more)

I have owned a falcon raptor 12 light hunter for about a month now, and so far I am very impressed by it's performance. It is extremely accurate, and thanks to it's light weight and short length, lovely and easy to handle. It is easy to use up lots of pellets down at the local club and the rifle produces nice tight groups at 25 yards. It is easy to refill the cylinder using the quick fill silencer/adaptor combo, but the rifle has a relatively small shot capacity of about 40 shots at full... (read more)

I have owned and used my Falcon FN12 air rifle for 2 years specifically to lamp rabbits at night. Coupled with mini 4 power scope, lightweight lamp this rifle gave sterling service accounting for a good few hundred bunnies while overall the lightness of the combi meant no fatigue. The handling was very good being easily pointable and any misses were down to the shooter not the rifle. An air rifle I would have no problem recommending, especially in a multishot format.

A junior model Falcon FN12 air rifle is available with same action, 12 inch barrel shorter stock, buy full size stock as well and change as child grows older, brill. ideal starter gun for ft and young hunters and they won't outgrow it as they get older. i have an aa s310 and pro sport myself, but i'm going to buy one for my 11yr old step son for field target. i was considering the aa s200, but the build quality of the falcon even though it cost a little more, and with the option to upgrade...

The Falcon FN12 is a very nice lightweight hunting gun, if you're after a compact rifle for use in the hide or in any confined space then you won't go far wrong with the Falcon FN12.
At just under 12lb it's just the job.
I use mine for hide or woodland shooting.
Nice Match trigger, Nice stock, Nice blueing.
Great to carry around with you all day due to it's lightweight.
Falcon also give a great after sale service.
So go and buy one now you wont be disappointed. (read more)
