This is sheer beauty. If the quality of parts and shooting experience is at par, it will be selling like hot cakes. Awaiting its launch..

I couldn't find contact details of SDB ,so I mailed pelletshopee who were the first people to bring SDB Magnum in their online store.I was told that the Xena air rifle will be available for purchase from first week of September for INR 15000 .The air rifle features an automatic safety.

Artemis has enough power , the auto safety and 2 stage trigger will be the gem !! I still find Artemis to be unpredictable on repeating shorts sometimes even after tuning the trigger.

Model wise this looks to be a blend of Diana 34 ( Stalk , Trigger guard , barrel ) and Weihrauch HW95,99,50... ( Cross bolt safety)
Power wise shes level with Artemis .. just below 15 FT as per SDB ..

Biggest difference is the 2 stage trigger !!

Now how well the trigger behaves and how smooth the shot cycle is that will be the differentiating factor apart from price .. definitely will be costlier than Artemis .

I am happy with Artemis with her accuracy , build , design , handling , power ... except the trigger unit , sometimes its unpredictable .I have N25 and she has a good smooth trigger pull , also my Diana 460 has excellent trigger .

We need to wait for reviews on this Rifle but first impression is very solid and packed with features and improvements !!

Cheers

Pravin ji, the Artemis has 13 kg cocking . Xena has 13.6 kg cocking effort. As per Peeltshoppee, this has slightly more power and more accuracy than Artemis.

I too have Diana 460 Mag, NX 100. Both are excellent at their level. I am not expecting the Xena to be at level of Diana, but certainly should be at par with NX100 in terms pf smoothness and consistency. Regards

I guess that's not much of the difference in cocking ... Accuracy will be improved with the 2 stage trigger for sure , she will be more predictable and easy to shoot as you don't have to focus on your trigger pull much while you aim.

Lets wait for the experts review here :)

I dont have NX or any PH rifles but I am happy with Artemis consistency and accuracy , I would say I will be happy if SDB is ready to put Xena trigger in my Aretmis ;) .. don't know if thats a possible option technically though :)
