Hi, my name is Louis and I enjoy hunting both with fire arms and air rifles. 

I prefer air rifles to be honest, as I find them more accessible and less dangerous.

My collection consists of: BSA Sptifire, Firebird, Ultra, Superten. All blueprinted by John Bowkett last December. 

And a fac FX Bobcat in .25 :-) 

I also have a 12 gauge Merkel over and under, and a .308 Heym stutzen. 

 

I'd actually like to ask if someone has experiences with the Titan Bearcat? 

It looks like a lovely little gun, and I've heard that they are well made (JB design, need we know more). 

I am looking for one, but they seem to be difficult to find; probably most are in collections now, or somewhere in an attic. 

 

Many thanks for looking, 

With kind regards, Louis

Hi Louis,

I've never tried a Titan but, from what I understand, they were the forerunner to Falcon - the breech configuration looks very similar.

If my FN12 is anything to go by, it'll be a brilliant rifle - very well made, yet simple.

I reckon you're right about Bearcats being in peoples collections - you'll probably be searching for a while.

Good luck :thumbs:

On a serious note. For a change. I think, and it's a big think, Falcon was originally titan back in the day. I'll look at images after this but the bear cat had a right sexual trigger blade and like Jon points out, FN upper.

What do you mean less dangerous????? Do you mean to the quarry or people? a safe shot is a safe shot regardless if its with an air rifle or a .505 Gibbs, on the subject of the Titan excellent rifles with superb engineering.
