The P15 IS fully regulated and it gives an astonishing shot count, I filled the rifle up to 195 bar and shot 170 full power shots down to 105 bar, this was in 177 caliber so expect a higher shot count in .22 & .25 cal. I found it likes JSB heavy 10.35 grn pellets, it throws them out at 11.89 ft lbs and again accuracy has to be seen to be believed, I’m not just saying this as I’m selling the rifle, @ 35 yds the length of my test range I could achieve a full 177 magazine of pellets ( 11 ) fit under a 1p size group.
Barrel is 1/2 shrouded, it has a full set of internal baffles so its not a hollow tube as you see on some rifles, it does a very good job of calming the muzzle blast, you can hear a ” TINK” from the action & muzzle when the rifle is fired, trust me when I say you can get a couple of rabbits sitting close to each other it is that quiet.
The trigger can be adjusted to suit your finger, mine was at first a little heavy for my liking, I had to take off the stock ( 2 x allen headed stock bolts) slacken off small retaining nut on travel rod and then twist to suit, very easy to do and makes a massive difference, tighten up nut and job done, a safety catch is also fitted into the trigger and works perfectly.
I am 6 ft and at first I thought I would never get on with the P15’s proportions, it is a bit awkward at first trying to find the perfect cheek to gun fit but I did and I now find the rifle comes up to aim spot on each time, the side lever works so well you can actually keep your face in place, not such good news if you are a lefty you will have to move your cheek to re load.
All in all a very very impressive rifle, I think SMK have done another good job introducing this rifle into the UK. It will find a lot of happy shooters, in fact I have kept one for myself, I am really that impressed by this small rifle with a massive performance.
I ORDER ALL ARTEMIS RIFLES IN FROM SMK THE UK IMPORTERS. AS LONG AS THEY HAVE THEM IN STOCK NORMALLY 2 WORKING DAY DELIVERY
