    The P15 is small, light and dainty (I own one). The Gladius is heavy and unwieldy (I've handled one). Kozak could be the 'Goldilocks' gun (from recent reviews).

    No, but like the Evanix Rainstorm I am ahead of the game again and I think prices will go up, they are a quality gun...

    I tend to agree, I've done searches on this completely unpronounceable gun and everybody seems to like it. Why it isn't advertised more I don't know.

    I have the Gladius and its accurate. The 4 magazines, sidelever cocking, adjustable stock and cheek piece are a bonus too. Its been really reliable and the only problem I can mention is that the finish was a bit under par but soon was rectified with a touch up. Reckon that the screwdrivers they use at the factory are worn out!
    Sadly its weight has become a little too much for me due to arthritis so I will probably soon put in as part ex against something lighter at my local RFD. Not a pup though cos I have had enough of them and looking at another DS Regal or similar.

    Here comes my generic P15 post, I very nearly bought one a year or so ago when countryway were doing them for £299, but I wasn't set up for a pcp so a bottle & scope would've put me back another £200-£300, it's a very good gun for that price but now it's shot up I wouldn't pay that amount, its a budget gun, the kzbwck zbrxz seems like the better option.

    From what I've seen and read I would also say Kozak.but out of the 2 quoted rifles I would say the P15.
    Having held a Gladius, after lusting over one, I couldn't believe how badly made it felt. It's heavy and the side lever was wobbly and not very reassuring.

    The p15 is a dream to carry around , it really is featherlight compared to many. Ive been useing a buddies .25 for ratting and its great, loads of shots as its regulated, quiet and bloody accurate. He also has the p10 in .22 which is the earlier one, hes had that a few years now, no problems at all, thats why he bought the new p15.

    There seems to be a few 'budget' pcps around now that will embarrass so called high end product, interesting times

    The problem is more premium makes turning out crap, like The BSA attempt based on the budget mechanism but sold at the price of a Daystate....

    When I first see and handled the p15 I thought cheap Chinese siht, mainly as I thought it had to be as the price and weight of it I guess, it's only when you spend a few hours useing it you start thinking, mmm this aint bad and Ive put a couple of tins through this now and god knows how much hes used it and its cock on. Hows the zebroia holding up as thats another gem beginning to shine through Ive read

    I took out my .22 P15 yesterday morning. I've set it up at 18.5 fpe with JSB Express. I checked zero and got under a 5p group at 35 yards. I was hitting a 40mm spinner at ease at 67 yards and a 25mm spinner consistently at 55 yards. I took a couple of rabbits at close and medium ranges and then dropped a long range pigeon with a head shot. This diminutive little rifle has become my favorite and I'm seriously thinking about selling my Wildcat for another P15 in .25. It is also very light and I can comfortable walk around with it in a downward pistol hold.

    Another good thing is when I had it it was doing 10.3 fpe. It could have been doing 9.3fpe and I wouldn't have to have sent it back because with a single tweak the problem is fixed and I had it doing 11.3 fpe. When I put the gun on my ticket I was able to convert it myself.

    You will love the .25 esspecially as you can up it, but at sub12 its great too and the impact alone is worth every penny ;)
