    Default Kral Puncher Auto

    Esteemed Fellow Airgunners

    I am considering a Kral Puncher Auto. I already have an Air Arms S400, which is reliable and accurate to the nth degree, and I am in the market for something in 5.5 with a bit of a novelty factor that won't cost an arm and a leg.
    From what I have read so far the Kral's are good value for money, and once tuned by one of the well known names on the forum (Kevin jumps to mind), they are as accurate as guns 2-3 times their price. I considered the Puncher Breaker but, like most bull pups, they are not lefty friendly (my twin boys shoot with me and one is a south-paw).
    I accept that it will not be top notch accurate out of the box. There is a turkish review on Youtube that shows ghastly groups, but the gentleman who is doing the shooting does not inspire enough confidence that I contribute all of the inaccuracy to the rifle: Kral Puncher Auto 5.5 mm Yarı Otomatik PCP İncelemesi - YouTube

    My question is this: when it comes to tuning the semi auto rifle to be accurate, are there any major factors to consider beyond what is normally done?
    (Keep in mind I am in the market for a budget air rifle, 5.5, powerful, with a design that does not make it too difficult for a left-handed person.)

    Thank you

    Good point Dallas, thank you. I saw a video of a guy using a dremmel tool to smooth out his magazines (on some Hatsan model) to make sure the pellets come out intact on the other side.

    Hi guys
    I am also currently in the market, looking for a powerful 5.5mm that can shoot with substance at 100m, but yes within budget...
    So currently I am looking at the Kral Puncher semi-auto 5.5mm on the one hand and then on the other hand the ZBROIA HORTITSIA.
    I have looked at some of the videos I can find online, but nothing really that gives me a definite answer between the two.
    Any owners of these that has opinions?
    Thanks

    The semi auto feels nice to hold, not to heavy, would also like to shoot one. Xtreme Airguns have one in stock, pity one cannot shoot it at the shop.

    I'm saving up for the Impact but might end up buying two 'lesser' toys for the same money and have double the fun...

    They have stock(according to their website): Pellet Gun
    There is a terrible review here:
    Kral Puncher Auto 5.5 mm Yarı Otomatik PCP İncelemesi - YouTube
    Terrible because it is in Turkish, and because of how badly the reviewer or the rifle groups.

    Watching that video I wouldn't consider the Kral, but again that could be the shooter as Kral is knowen for it's accuracy, I own 2 Kral bullpups and they are very accurate. In the other hand, the Zbroia is also very nice, accurate as a lazer (I own the Kozak), good balance and very nice to shoulder smooth trigger out of the box, as said the accuracy of the Kozak is in par with most of high end guns, between the Kral and Zbroia, I would take the Zbroia.
