Yep I love mine also,so I don't want some lowlife stealing it. I have all locked up in gun safes but there is no one around to hear if you used dynamite let alone power cutters. Hence I don't leave much of value there. It is a shame.

Oh I still use it below the bridge as my family live around me and keep an eye out. It has taken a lot of varmints around here and is better then a subsonic 22 , at 50-70 yds if you miss the head of anything it is your fault. I routinely take out chips and reds at 50-70 yds with it (30cal turns em inside out). When I walk the woods I use an airforce escape , it also is great for the purpose as it will take any varmint around here, and it is light ,.25 cal and able to put the pill on the noggin at 60-70 yds. My back stop here is thous acres of nothing or I use Kevlar back stops around the barn and house.

Ok barrel in drilled out air stripper to .500 and slid down shroud, drilled out end cap to oversize and screwed in just miss the muzzle. Shoots very well at 25 yds , like one hole. FPS is 688 - 694 I can't get it over that. So whats next to get it up to 800-900 FPS , is stovk valve so far gen 2. RE-CAP mountain air barrel, went in just like you all said.
thanks for feed back.

I got the 30 cal valve in today for the mrod. That was quick service. Next week I will put it in and let you all know how it works out. I want to watch the vid on it a couple more times. I picked up a 12.5 spring also , any Suggestions on were to set it, to start out.

Depends. What I did was crank it to the highest power I could and see what the string looks like. I then backed it off until I got a nice tight bell curve at about 85fpe and then got one at 77fpe and i got a good 69fpe tune as well. But I have a different spring so I'm unsure what your settings would be.

OK I got the valve in and no leaks. FPS show 852 start down to 784 after 12 shots. Nice tight group. Used the large port that came with the hill valve, used the 12.5 spring. All adj at max. Should I turn it down more. When I did back off FPS dropped to737 but only went to 694 after 18 shots. I have a tank to fill it and plan on using for hunting only.  Will the valve wear in a little. I also thought the larger air transfer port a little flimsy made out of alum. But so far so good about 70 FPE.
