Dear Anksthakur,
You can choose either PRECIHOLE NX200 or SDB XENA, both are good air rifles in this price range and performs well,
DECIDE, COMMIT, SUCCEED (y) :D

Here’s what I decided out of Xena and NX 200.
It was the later.
Few Factors that made me incline towards NX200:
1) Nitro-Piston
> It’s smoother than Spring (Less Vibration, Truer Shot each Shot)
> More number of consistent shots than Spring in terms of ME/Shot.
Cons is replacement cost, but for 10000 or over shots, it’s gonna remain consistent; 3k replacement is affordable and worth with the number of true shots it’s giving.
2) Barrel Grooves
> 12 Lands and 12 Grooves, 1 in 450mm Right Hand Twist, is so clearly visible, You can actually count them anywhere in the barrel from breech to muzzle. This is not so in Xena, in at least over 7 of them that I’ve seen.
> It may have limited effect in rifling the pellets to its axis, but this holds a sentimental attachment to my Father’s Diana 350 that I longed to shoot; and so are valuable to me.
3) Synthetic Stock (This one’s a personal inclination)
> The stock feels the right match to the power it prowesses. This is subjective but I couldn’t really appreciate the Wooden Finish on Xena. Perhaps it’ll only be the classics or long range NPBs or the PCPs that I can settle with good Wood Stock.

Cheers :cheers: and Happy Buying!

Share some pics of your rifle.It's unlikely for the company to miss it, especially in their flagship model.

SDB is embossed.
Packaging also seems legit.
However, Xena not embossed.
