Mike can you grab them for the guys? My TSC is 1 hour away but I would mind the trip either way.
Let me know. I am going to try to sneak a run in Saturday if I can. if not then it may have to wait fro next Friday and I will call to hold 2 if possible.

Like other Murray's tag line about airguns and beer being similar.

And TSC is having the equivalent of happy-hour over there!

Anyone remember when they tried happy hour in Ontario. I do.. but don't at the same time.


You're lying if you say you wont buy more airguns! 8)

Im trying to visit them tomorrow (ones in Grimbsy and the other is in Brantford), Ill see how many they have and if I can afford to, Ill grab a few extra
I couldnt afford to ship them out but I could bring them out to the GTAC to sell to guys there, maybe I could tack on $5 each extra for gas???

Mike if you can grab one fro each of Pat and Murray then I am sure they would send you the shipping costs before you so you don't have to outlay yourself.
If you don't get enough let me know and I will see what I can get. And if you can get Twister one I can pick up at GTAC and get it to him when we meet at Princes Auto next!!

Also I have called TSC prior and had then hold stuff for me if you want to go that route.

Ill go to see what they have tomorrow morning, sounds like they wouldn't be hard to get rid of if I can pick up a few extra, I just wouldn't want to get stuck with them
Do they usually have a limit on guns like this?

I called my local TSC Friday morning right at 7am and they had 4 in stock!!! And they even kept one in the back for me until later in the day!! And a local store owner I know saw it, and he bought one!! Should TSC pay for this free advertising? :lol:

I will be shooting it later today to see what I think! I can hardly wait!! 8)

If there's one for me, I'll cover your costs +$20 for your generous effort. My PC is T6G 2C6: just let me know the shipping costs and total gun cost and send your EMT email.

If not, I really appreciate the good intentions of all involved.

Well, I put a few pellets through my $49 Daisy 953 today. Didn't bother trying the iron (plastic) sights. I figured I wanted to try the scope so started with it. The scope is bright, and will focus at 21 feet (my basement) at the lower power settings (x3 to x5). The parallax though is quite bad at that distance. Moving your eye around will move the aim point a bit more than 1" side to side and up and down. The gun seems accurate though. I'd like to try it with a red dot sight but both that I have will only fit Weaver/Picatinny rails. Maybe I'll move my AO scope over and try it.

I fired six shots through the chronograph - 422 / 431 / 426 / 424 / 428 / 430 feet per second. Not near 500 but better than the 360 or so that my CX4 does. Pellets are 7.9gr Crosman Premier Super Match (wadcutters).

I had to adjust the elevation/windage screws almost three entire turns to get it on target! I was really surprised!






And I recommend everyone gets new scope rings, they seem weak to me. And this may sound dumb, but do I use 32mm rings on this scope? All that I can find are 30mm rings.

The scope rings need to match the tube dia.
likely 25mm or 1"
32mm is the dia of the objective lense.
