Hey. Yes the Nitro Piston works very well. Apparently, GNV sir happened to test both the Xena and Athena and both are giving around 13.5-14 fpe power. The Jsb pellets shoot well and fastest in Athena since those pellets are made of soft lead. The 7.7 grain jsb round head shot at 900fps and the 8.44 grain shot at 850fps. With Precipell pellets it failed to give the same results as shown in the launch video of Athena.goodburner wrote:this looks like a very good purchase. I'm on the fence between sdb artemis and nx200, but the Nitro Piston is pulling me like a neodymium magnet.
@prasanjit.baul - how is the rifle now? what's the velocity you're getting? all sorted ?
Apart from all this, the rifle is fantastic. Shoots really awesome and I love the smooth firing cycle. I dont have much experience of a springer rather air rifle but from the last rifle I owned i.e. the Hurricane, this surely feels a lot premium.

Nitro piston users will definitely know the difference between a spring piston and nitro piston, the comfortable is nothing comparable. After using nx100 for few months I don't want to turn back on my old hp spring rifle.

SDB Trigger is far superior than NX200 primitive Theoben trigger, (its Hard and nasty) I own both SDB & NX200. After shooting with SDB two stage (Diana like trigger) I am hating Nx200 rough, hard, tight trigger. I tried tuning the Nx200 trigger, but it is no where close to SDB superior trigger.

This experience is obvious as regard to trigger.
PH trigger is double pull single stage whereas Xena's trigger is two stage.
An experienced finger can sense the difference almost immediately.
You can aways feel a creep in PH trigger before final let off.
This creep can not be eliminated due to its design.
PH trigger is much superior to Armar trigger in any given day.
