High Power, Side Lever, Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP)

The Evanix Windy City II is a super pest control and hunting PCP rifle and loaded with features. This rifle has to be one of the ultimates for hunting or pest control use. It's weighs in at a mere 7.85 lbs. and even with a scope will weigh less than many other air rifles. That moderate weight means you won't get tired out lugging a heavy gun around the woods or fields. In addition the gun features a 13 shot magazine, is easy to load and the sidecocking mechanism is easy to cock. The two-stage trigger is just right for the hunter and comes set approximately between 2.6 lbs of pull. So if you like a powerful, accurate PCP for hunting, take a very close look at this rifle. It's a great value for the money.

I just finished testing the Evanix Windy City in .177 caliber.

I knew the Windy City was powerful but had no idea it was THAT powerful. The results below will attest to the awesome power of this gun. For shooters that like a powerful .177 caliber rifle, this has got to be at the top of the food chain. In fact the Windy City is so powerful that I didn't even bother to test pellets under 7.7 grain, some of which I knew would have velocities of 1200 fps or higher.

The Windy City is simply too powerful for the lighter pellets and it even shot the middle weight 7.7-9.0 grain pellets at supersonic velocities. Shooting supersonic (over 1080 fps) means that the shroud and baffles won't do anything to quiet the gun and makes accuracy doubtful. This is definitely a gun that shoots beautifully with heavy pellets including the very heavy .177 Rabbit Magnum, JSB Monster and Eun Jin Domed pellets. All I can say is WOW.

I did note a couple of idiosyncracies about this gun. The magazine worked very well but likes the pellets pushed in past flush to enhance smooth indexing. In addition, it did not index with any pellets that had a flat head or nearly so. For instance, the magazine did not index with wadcutter or hollowpoint pellets with the exception of the Baracuda Hunter Extreme/Kodiak Hollowpoint. Although they are hollowpoint pellets, they have a somewhat rounded head. They indexed very well and are definitely an option to use. Bottom line is that I've never tested a gun in .177 with so much power that there was no point in testing the lightest pellets. That's a rather awesome thing.

The gun uses a sidelever which cocked very easily and the 13 shot .177 magazine inserts into the gun extremely easily. The noise level when using heavier (subsonic) pellets is not bad at all. Very similar to other powerful PCP's. The hardwood thumbhole stock was very comfortable and balanced nicely although I would like to see a fancier stock on this gun but on the other hand it keeps the price in the reasonable range. The gun also got 30 good shots although velocities did drop off from shot 31-40.

Bottom line is that the Evanix line-up of PCP's rifles are very impressive yet at a reasonable price. The Windy City has got to be the ultimate for those that love the .177 caliber but also look for a lot of power.
