so like 2 months ago i bought a 1322 for small game from amazon, but they never did re-stock it. SO i had to buy the kit version, and that came today. So... anyway 7ft/lb is good enough with the accuracy for squirrel and rabbit, right? you only need 4 ft/lb for squirrel and rabbit. Anyway, i put a scope and stock on it.

Nice! That kit didn't come with a steel breech did it? That would be a great deal!

That is the minimum amount of energy needed. Make sure you know the killzones. Accuracy is very important.
Last winter I brought home countless rabbits, using 25ft-lbs to deliver a 21 grain .22 from under 10 yards to about 25 yards. I did miss the kill zone a couple times, lucky able to finish with a follow up but that initial 21 grain pellet had enough energy to not let them take off any further.
In the mid 2000's I used to hunt with a 2289. It had good energy but lacked the ability for a fast, some times needed, follow up shot. In came the (I think around then) newly introduced Phantom at a good price and the pumper served a different purpose from then on.

In the winter, I got so many rabbits I had to get creative. Here is something that is fun and nice to give away - lucky rabbits foot

They say that they are only lucky if you give them away 8)

Nice looking set up tho, have fun hunting and shoot true

Wasn't very lucky for that rabbit.

Almost all of the girls I went to school with, had a "Lucky Rabbit's Foot" on the zipper clasp of their pencil cases. I suspect today, that might not be the "norm". :lol:

I got the same deal ftom Amazon. It's great to have the stock which can improve the accuracy in no doubt.

Hit the right place 'the kill zone' is very important. And for the 1322's 7ft/lb power, DOA will only happen in a short range, like 10 meters, at least sub 20 yards range...

These 1322 with the stock are sure accurate for a sub 500fps gun hey! My Dad, my brother and I all got them for Christmas and they are all the same, super accurate with just a red dot at 30-40 yards. My dad's and mine are now 14.5" (and both have different tubes to allow speeds over 500fps legally), but my brother can still shoot just as well with his at those ranges with the stock 10" barrel and so could ours before the switch. Great fun!

I changed to 14.5 inch barrel too. But didn't do any internal mods (except a hi-flow port).

Recently I found that is super fun for only 3 to 4 pumps, and use destroyer pellets to shoot 20 yard range plastic bottles. Very accuracy, very lound and surely know you hit the bottle, plus less to none pumping efforts that you can play a whole day and won't get tired! And, you can keep on shooting the same bottle until you finally make it into pieces~

Nice! Good to know 3 or 4 pumps will give accuracy at 20 yards!

If you can get an FTP (Flat Top Piston) installed - you would get max fps with less pumps... :wink:

Accuracy to hit the 500ml coke bottle~ it's for fun, no need to get a dime group right ~ [emoji16]

And don't use pointed pellets, while hitting on the bottle, there will be not that much noise ~ Cheers ~

Oh, when you chasing the bouncing plastic bottle and come more and more close to it, you can practice quick shoot too~ (uh. ..of course not quick pump, take your time to pump and load, but shoot it as fast as you can ~) lot of fun ~
