After testing the Kral EVO Marine in 5.5mm, I got the opportunity to test the Puncher S also in 5.5mm.

This is the entry model PCP from Kral and has the smallest airtube (230cc) and shortest barrel (480mm) of the range, it has a side-lever action similar to the ones found on the Evanix rifles, it cycles smoothly and flawlessly through the 12 shot magazines. All round a good rifle in my opinion, ideal for plinking, general use and Critter Control (critter control = paper punching, cans, wild spuds, runaway cauliflowers - pick your target).

In my opinion - good bang for your buck!

I only used JSB Jumbo Heavy 18.13gr in 5.52mm as I found these to perform the best in the Evo Marine.
