The Badger .40 is designed to use .401 S/W sized ammo.  Like all of our airguns, the caliber is selected to make buying or casting bullets easy.  We recommend using lead, no sabots.  You can use reload lead, hard-cast or dead soft lead.

The materials used in the construction of a Badger is exactly the same as all of XP-Airguns products.  The barrel is 4130 chrome-moly steel.  Rifling is to our specifications (these are not modified firearm barrels).  The air tube is 4130 chrome-moly steel.  All fasteners are graded, high strength fasteners. All the aluminum used is aircraft spec, 7075-T6.

The price is set lower than other XP-Airguns for several reasons.  We do not consider the Badger .40 a custom airgun.  We only build the actions one way. Badgers are all Sniper Gray Cerakote. (Cerakote is a baked on, ceramic filled, epoxy finish)  We use a modified QB78 trigger assembly. There are two different styles of stocks available, but no other wood options are offered by us.
