Honestly, I had more fun shooting this at the range than my powder burners last time I had it out.


I Love it! 1 holers as of now until i test it out further than 10 meters, i don't know if its because of the air stripper or i just got a good one but anyways loving it!

I am not sure if you have a exceptional shooter or if it is more the norm with these rifles.
Here I am shooting at 60' and crouched down using a stool to rest my elbow on. So not the ideal position for really accurate shooting and I was using a premier HP .22 pellet at the tail end of a 70 shot string. This is a 10 shot string the penny more or less covers it .
And I am not the most accurate of shooters out there. In fact I would say I am the opposite of that.
Cheers
P.S this was with the rifle I ordered just before you placed your order

I'm going to try some 50 and 100 yard shooting if we ever get a calm day....which don't happen too often around here.

Does loosen up the spring and hammer bolt could bring the hammer to loosen even more with the recoil and vibration when firing over time.
Would it need re-adjustment periodically or it will stays at he point of you adjustment.?

Thank you anyone for answers.

Good point there! That could happen if the bolt loses its lock grip in the hammer.
Need to check that.....

I took mine to the range today. It was really too windy for longer range shooting for groups so spent most of my time shooting water bottles, breaking skeets etc. The wind was about 30-40kms per hour. I had removed the jbweld from 2 holes of my valve so now I had 3 holes open instead of just 1. The velocity increased by about 100 fps which I think helped, especially in the wind. I did shoot a few groups at 50yards. Here's the best one. I'm sure it can be improved on a better day (but its always windy here):

my only group shot at 20 yards:

Can anyone share pics on how to adjust the hammer? I have a fp valve and would like to decrease the power and also know how to increase power for my stock valve on my spare airtube. Thanks
