    Shoot the Gaundlet

    It is a .177 Did not chrony a full tank of air . Wanted to sight it in and enjoy so spinner shooting . The numbers are way off to what the rifle PA received . But they are were I was going to take it with a little regulator changing . So I am happy with it as it is set . 9 grain 860 fps , 9.75 grain 839 fps , and 10.5 grain 800 fps. They state the rifle is regulated at 1150 psi . With a shoot count of 70 . PA chrony 10.43 at 905 fps . At shoot 80 mine fell of the regulator and the tank gauge was right at 900 psi . not 1150 . But I planed on setting a regulator at 900 psi . Not the most scientific way of doing things which leaves a lot of room for assumption . But it is the out come I was after . Did not punch paper for accuracy today . But by looking at the small grouping on my spinner things are good . This is my first magazine rifle so I am not a expert . But on several occasions the last 2 pellets would not rotate to be loaded if I did not press the mag back down a little . Will have to shoot it some more and see if that gets better or worse .Marvin

    New air guns are always fun because with a little tinkering
    they can always shoot better , I know several people that have
    purchased that rifle and I believe one of them takes delivery of it
    today I'll try to post back with what he says about the gun .

    I do not know what happened today for sure . Loaded the mag with some WC . Shoot may be 2 . Then the mag quite rotating to load . It was hard to get out . Once out the probe would not close with the mag or single tray . After a little playing around with it I got it to close . Loaded a few pellets with the single tray and the power was up and down . Like the sear was dragging . Pulled the trigger assembly and the hammer . Some how 3 pieces of skirt came falling out of the tube on too the bench . Some how they made it past the probe . This trigger assemble is no different than a QB in as far as the adjusting screws sloppy fit . Which cause the screws to back out . I have been and did use thread tape on these . Some one else might have another cure . But this has worked for me in the past . Plan on shooting it tomorrow if the weather holds out . Will use the single tray for a while .Marvin

    Day 3 . Ordered a new mag . Used the single tray today . Shoot 3 tanks of air worth of pellets with no problems . Yesterday I set the trigger pull at 2 pounds and adjusted the sear which set the duration of pull to were I like it . Marvin

    I have shoot the rifle for 11 out of 12 days . Have not had good results with the mag's and several brands and nose type's of pellets . So I have been using the tray . When I bought the rifle I figured I would more than likely use the tray any way . I have not chrony it again { it is a 1/4 mile walk up hill to shoot and I am hauling a lot already ] and the rifle is doing good as is . It seems to now be falling off the regulator according to the rifle gauge around 1200 psi . I bought it to shoot spinners from 25 -50 yards and it is doing that for me . Is it IMO a good 300 dollar regulated pcp yes . And I would buy it again . Will it do what a 1500 -3000 dollar regulated pcp will . More than likely not . Even a CS regulated marauder is over 600 dollars . Is it better in some ways ? More than likely . But not worth the added cost for what I am doing . Marvin

    As long as you like it and it does what you want it too; that's all that really matters.
    As far as the mags on the pcp guns, i would want a single shot tray for sure for general shooting.
    I guess the mags are nice for hunting....as long as they're reliable. They just seem like something extra to break down or give other problems to me, or that would be my luck anyway lol.

    Sounds to me like you got a lot of gun for the money spent!

    Wish i had that 2 pound trigger you have there on my 392. I'm slowly getting more interested in the pcp guns, It's gotta be a lot of fun.

    The Beeman chief and the xisico sentry have this basic trigger . They all can be adjusted even lower that 2 pounds . The sentry has a auto safety . But I have been told that it can be easily disabled . It is moderated as well . Flying dragon has best price on them I have seen . Marvin
