i ccant tell you fps or ft-lbs.. but... iv taken squirrels out to 40 yards. birds a 40.. and chipmunks at 40. somebody took a wood chuck with one head shot using a kodiak from i think 25 yards. its has enough power to take almsot small game up to raccoon size.

...I just bought a used one from someone here that was sent to PSP for a power mod...got it w/a case and scope mounted for $150...You should look for a used one that has been sent to him (skylar @ "power stroke pneumatics"), check the classifieds here and on the yellow forum. Like I said I haven't run it yet but Ive heard the moded gun will push 850 FPS. I want to see how fast its VS my stock one anyways. we'll see.
pfffft....THWAP

I have a CFX and you will be pleased with the performance. I've only taken starlings with it. One shot was made at about 40yrds?
