I see you pulled the shroud and installed a second barrel band. The shroud mount is bolted into the breach block and the shroud threads on to that..?

I see you ditched the brass thread protector at the end of the barrel; did you replace that with a threaded muzzle brake adapter and mated black thread protector..?

You swapped out the compact scope for a big-azz Discovery Scope, looks like a near perfect fit around the magazine. Nice work on the home-rigged scope cam. One of my Discovery scopes came with the scope cam adapter but I haven't had a chance to tinker with it. Which scope is that on there..?
The last shot zoomed in on the smaller target was sweet..!

Your Bipod looks awfully similar to the one I got from Air Gun Archery Fun...I'm planning on installing a sling on the M11 to make it easier to lug around the bush, it should make it easy to swap out for the Bipod.
Did you mount it using the sling stud adapter..? How do you like it..?

Is that some kind of Camo-Tape wrapped around the pistol grip..?

What pellets did you decide to run on that glorious day out..?

Thanks for sharing TM; I'm jealous..!


Hello Rupertt!!, shroud mount is fixed onto the barrel with a set/grub screw and yes the shroud threads onto it!

I received the rifle without the brass chunk presumably because Wes had to mount a piece of carbon fibre tubing from the end of the muzzle to connect to the end of the shroud so it wouldnt silence the air rifle illegally, the brass probably wouldnt allow for that. Its just covered with some electrical tape!


Scope cam was made with a chunk of 1 1/4 ABS with 4 relief cuts into one side and attached a cellphone to binocular mount on the other. Cost me like 10 bucks haha.

I switched up the scope to the Discovery VT-Z 3-12×44 AOE
because its the only scope in my inventory i havent tested yet. For 100 bucks im very happy with it!!

I had a couple swivel mounts kicking around so i put one on there
Most bipods of that design have a integrated swivel mount inbetween the legs so hopefully yours has the same!

Got a 12 pack of camo tape from amazon for 12 bucks

Good for first aid bandages as well. Just need the gauze to complement it.

Used the JSB hades and JSB king mk 2's.

Next time i post ill definitely structure and organize it better. I couldve taken my time with my shooting and articulating everything accordingly but i was a tad bit worried about getting snowed in and stranded haha. Thanks for checking in Rupertt!! :D

Tks for posting the video. If you get a second bag for under the butt, your groups should improve immensely.
Your position was actually anything but steady. It is difficult to shoot meaningful groups with the crosshairs constantly moving.
With both elbows on the trunk lid, and left hand (assuming you are right handed) the left hand supporting the butt at
your shoulder, will give better control.
Considering the amount of movement, good shooting indeed.
Watch videos when Matt Drubber or Ted, Bier are shooting groups, or birds for that matter, the crosshairs are still at the
moment of discharge. This is what to strive for & practice.
You are off to a good start, though.

Thanks for the feedback Daryl, i really do appreciate it. I'm actually left handed, i only use my right when i pull the bolt back for another round, other than that my right hand is free most the time. I was expecting a caldwell shooting rest before i went out on my trip but Amazon was delayed for some reason, im sure the rest wouldve helped quite a bit.

So - both elbows on the trunk, right hand holding the butt plate against your shoulder. That gives you a firm 4-point rest (5 if counting both pods of the bi) for the rifle (both elbows and gun to the shoulder, another if you count your cheek on the comb.
I actually prefer shooting off a bipod nowadays, than with a bench rest.

Decided to give the M11 a skinjob, already loving the new look. It provides a better grip for me too.

Hey guys good buy,great gun.I had mine in 25cal,from Wes.WEE bit of a cracker !! If your thinking of a tri-pod & barrel band.Look at the UTG.product.If you use a long[3/4 -1" machine screw/stud.You can mtn.a sling stud & the bb without drilling a hole.You can buy the sling stud that is already the right length ,so can accomplish both..

TMonkey - nice job on the camo skin. Sure changes the appearance. I still have to put a sling swivel on the belly, for
a bipod. I hadn't thought of putting a second band on it, can't really see a reason, but if it shoots better with it, that's
a good reason.
I likely won't get out shooting out of doors with mine for a while yet.

Cool! - I've decided to go out next week. The temps are supposed to be up around 10.
The range is always windy and with the wind over the snow, it's still chilly as all the
shooting is under a roof.
