What happened to the Kral Puncher Space?
« on: December 10, 2018, 11:08:06 AM »
Looks like the already vaporware Kral Puncher Space is MIA on their site. I really liked the looks of the Space and was anxiously waiting to get one, but it looks like Kral gave up making it? Anyone know anything about this?

Well, I just discovered that the Space is still listed in their new (12/2018) catalog; first in line, actually...

So, color me confused. Is the Space still "coming"? Anyone from AOA or PA willing to comment?  ;)

I live in Turkey and spoke to Kral earlier this week on this topic. Space is due to go on sale here in January. Like you I am interested in this model and have been able to get some of the specifications. It will come with new trigger and barrel, in 22 Min power will be about 14ft/lbs Max power about 50ft/lbs, so should handle JSB Monsters, in 25 Max power about 65ft/lbs.
I know that samples of the Nemisis, which went on sale here about a month ago, were sent to the American distributor this week and Kral are now awaiting an order.
They have told me previously that they are working on a regulator but have given no indication as to when this will be available.
I hope that this helps a bit. If I get my hands on this model I will post a review.
By the way did you know that Kral are now sponsoring Troy Hammer after his performance at EBR???

Paul,

Thanks so much for your input! I'm glad to hear that the Space is actually going to ship, I just hope that PA and/or AOA pick it up quickly here in the US. If not, I'll have to find someone in Turkey to send me one!  ;)

Looking forward to a review if you get one!

Cheers,
F

Kral now say release in Turkey delayed until after IWA so March maybe April.
Best way to keep a track on this is that  Aksuav gunshop is largest in Turkey and are quite close to Kral so will probably be first to have it on sale. They already have it and a few other Kral models not yet available on their webpage. They show as "no stock"

Tried to post link but not allowed to so you will need to Google.

Chrome autotranslate does quite a good job.

The best selling rifle in Turkey is one you have never heard of Huglu Effecto - regulated and LW Polygon barrel.
