Ratel Sporting Airguns started in my little workshop situated in George.

It all began with my first PCP project, had to learn everything from scratch, with the help of ARF, friends on call and everyone's favorite Google to get me going. After that successful project, my design brain went into overdrive with my main aim being to build an affordable PCP Air rifle for upcoming shooting stars. So with my technologically limited workshop tools, prototype No.1 was built; with quite a bit of modding it became a fairly successful platform. Only after replacing the barrel the rifle really came to life; redesign done and prototype no.2 was underway, fitted with the only descent barrel I could find, this unit gave me excellent figures and is very accurate.

Production will start in the next week or two. All parts will be done by CNC precision machining and Lothar Walther barrels are being imported to compliment the consistency and accuracy of the action.

Herewith prototype No.2 as reference to the production version of the RSA Veldt air rifle.
