Hi CAF

The Artemis seems to live up to the hype. Solid, all metal, accurate right out of the box.

I noticed that the add on stock isn't really all that great. You need some kind of optic if you want use it, but would work fine if you had an optic. I was going to just go irons. The mounting option would require a canted optic mount to be comfortable. Unless somebody has solved these problems already?

What are people doing with theirs? Stock stabilizing, optics, blinging it up a little. Anyone done chrony work with it to establish fill max's and shot string optimization?

What are people using for chrony's these days? Maybe something that has bluetooth to your phone? I think one of these should be next on my buy list.

Suggestions for the PP7700 and chronys are all welcome.

Thanks

I added a screw that took out the play when it was extended, and drilled and tapped for a 3rd mounting screw. To get the up/down wobble out of it.

When I did my extended Chrony strings with mine. I used a pen/paper and a old Chrony F1. But seems like everybody is going with a FX radar. I have a F1, Chinese muzzle one and a FX on route.

FX radar, nice! And the price point seems to be reasonable as well. A pocket chrony, who would of thought? Do you know of an in country retailer?

How far out have you taken your Artemis? For now I am going to be stuck at 10 meters, which is plenty good for me to work on stance, breathing and trigger control. Not a competitor by any stretch but really enjoy the cadence. That this is single shot just makes it all the better for that.

I see people on youtube fiddling with what they are calling a 'regulator' control. This little guy isn't regulated is it? Mine didn't come with any adjustment tools, just the extra seals, fill probe and a metal tube with a hole in the side. Any idea what that metal tube is for?

Thanks!

I just run a red dot on mine and shooting it like a handgun - with 2 hands.

IIRC, it was running 408fps with 21.3gr. H&H pellets. I didn't chronograph it
with lighter pellets. It also shoots as well, with 15.89gr. Hades pellets and
16gr. Predators. When I'm on, it keeps them in the 10 ring at 10 meters.

Oh, yes, that. Where did you source that? I didn't see anything like that available or I would of snagged it straight up.

Job well done!

Using these as a small 'carbine' is certainly a good way to go.

Some reviews I've read state that they shoot a little low, but with standard CPHP and some jumbo 'sniper' at 17g I find it pretty much point of aim with the irons. Never got one of these before that were dead on from the factory.

For the price, this sure impresses me.

Airgun Archery Fun, or Airgun Source would have the FX radar. But I may bought the last one from AAF. 30 ish meters I had mine out.

Yes PP700SA are regulated. Regulator control is a Allen head screw under the gun, forward of the trigger. I wouldn't mess with it, unless you got a Chrony. They are set from the factory to a set pressure to comply with Canada FPS rules.

Metal tube is just a wrench to remove the fill guage.

Thank you, the question was more in line with - is that true? I have paid over $100 for regulators in the past. How they have managed to do this for the price point is beyond me.

I also added two extra screws to the side to take out the up and down wiggle and added a screw to the face of the stock to tighten up the lock.

My reg creeped so I tried to fix it and ended up making it worse, so I ordered a replacement from huma.

Could you pass me a link to the retailer you are referring to? Any google search of air gunnery and I find information about WWII vets and B52 bombers! Thanks!

Not sure if you are looking for the pistol scope or something else from Wes's store... This is a link to the scope directly and you can also take a look at other good stuffs. Wes is the top notch good guy here servicing us for a long time already!
