Quite an interesting rifle it is. Heavy, my co-worker likened it to an Enfield. Equipped it with a Bushnell Dusk/Dawn 4-12x40 in Beeman 5030M mounts. The BKL just wouldn't fit onto my grooved receiver. Computer problems have hindered my posting, thankfully I had stuff down on paper to report.

Beeman Crow Magnums averaged 620 fps, 15 fpe.
Beeman Ram Jet averaged 624 fps, 12 fpe.
Beeman Kodiak averaged 548 fps, 14 fpe.
Crosman Premier averaged 712 fps, 16 fpe.
Daisy Precision Max WC averaged 680 fps, 14 fpe.

Shot from indoors using ProChrono Chronograph w/ Light kit at box outside. Wasn't trying for accuracy, just trying to beat the weather and get it chronographed. Much to the cats dismay when I did shoot it inside, she didn't like the increased noise. Much to my dismay, it dented the cakepan I have my duct seal sitting in for a silent trap. I'm sure that if it had not been for the pan, it could have passed through the duct seal, and either into or out of the plywood frame. Lesson learned - little to no close shots with it into trap.

Sorry to say I haven't shot it much, too many projects on the burners.

Hope ya'll had a nice 4th. :D

T191032,

Hear that from almost everyone after they have held one. Definitely not a toy. Just to let you know that until it gets broke in(500 or so pellets down the road) the velocity and accuracy will keep getting better/faster. Lawdog

Trap for stronger airguns

The Outer's .22 trap (~ $70) is very good for the stronger airguns. Most "airgun" traps made of light gage steel are intended for 10m or pistol level energy, < 10 FPE. A regular 12 FPE break bbl will dent and fail those types very quickly. I have used the .22 traps for airguns at the 12 to 20 FPE levels and they only take the paint off. A layer of polymer or old rug goes a long way towards damping the noise if you want to keep the trap from sounding like a staple gun when it catches the pellet.

Regards, Dino
