The Hawke will retail at $449.00 And Nighthawk at $649. The Nighthawk has a balanced valve and a few other goodies plus both guns will come with our entry level scope and rings.

I have no need for "entry level" optics, just another set to add to the pile. I would guess the same for many others. Do you have a price for guns only?

+1...price without optics?  Or will that even be a choice? Guns look good! I'd buy this over a Gauntlet for sure, especially at 6lbs!

Itís same price it just comes as a package so give the scope to a newbie or put it away for a project etc. the scope was just part of the bargaining agreement to help make the entry level gun more appealing to people just getting into PCP. They also have a compressor Iím going to carry that looks real good but I have to torture test it first before it gets my ok

Gotcha! and thanks for all the feedback Travis! Wishing I would get to go to SHOT show one day! Jelly over here for sure! Interested to hear about that new compressor as well as I'm currently interested in the NOMAD2 for my use.

This sounds nice and promising. looking forward to seeing it.
Are they showing/displaying it at the show ?

If so, can we get some pics/details/specs/performance info ?
How many stages/cylinders does it have ?
What type of cooling system ?
110v/220v/ etc ?
Motor HP ?
Cycle/Duty rate ?
Fill rate and max pressure ?

Very excited to see what kinds of offerings may be coming in new compressors.
 Have always wondered what came of the multi cylinder model that was shown last year by SPA, but has not come to market as far as I know.
 Dreaming of a sub $700 compressor that stands up to the task of filling large SCBA tanks in a reasonable amount of time.

+1 on the compressor.
I am waiting for the actual specs on the new guns as I have a hole burning in my pocket for a new gun.
 I hardly call 60 ft lbs out of the box an entry level gun, keep the scope, offer decent optics for sale/package or without optics.
When you are selling quaity, why burden it with anything substandard.

Have to agree on the packaged scopes - what's the point of them - almost universally low quality and delivered with modest air rifles.   I don't want to pay for them or collect them.

WOW!  Unbelievable about the included scope comments.  These guns have been introduced as "ENTRY LEVEL" guns.  Just think about others just getting into the sport and wanting a complete package.  Having an included scope is a good selling point.  Once they get their feet wet they will move up on all accounts.  Many have been there....Remember.


I agree though that 60 FPE doesn't seem "entry level", but I don't think there is a "entry level" power standard.  So, I'm not gonna set my own standards on that either.  Can't imagine what's coming down the pike for the pro versions ;)

The prices sure arenít entry level.  Especially compared with the Urban, Gauntlet, and now Buccaneer.   Plus, putting the four together, the Hawk and Night Hawk look like an eye sore compared to the rest.  Only time will tell, but price wise the others win...
