WARP .25 loaded
« on: October 22, 2016, 09:57:39 AM »
Ok, so I took the plunge.  I picked up a WARP in .25 and here is my review.  You may not agree with anything I say and that's fine and I will add more later but this is starting with my first impression and will build from there.  (For pics go to Warp Candy posted by old pro).

First, I got the carbon fiber 4250 PSI tank and had a regulator put in it.  I went back and fourth and opted for this configuration because I wanted light with a long shot string.  MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

I opted for no bipod and put on a holding aid.  Looks nice but not sure it adds anything.  For now it stays.  Ability to shoot off hand was important and I have a bipod on rifles for long shooting but initial shooting plan for this is all up close.  I will have to do accuracy testing from a rest when I find time but for now pellets land on top of each other at 25-30 yards. Official result is minute of squirrel for now.  I'm happy.

I put a 4-14 BSA FFP on the rifle.  I was suprised by the glass quality.  It is nice.  The adjustments are crisp and clean.  It's a nice scope.  This is not the BSA scope of 20 years ago.  I have yet to use it in low light but so far I like it.  I had narrowed it down to this or Hawkeye in a SFP.  I like this more than I thought I would.

Loudness.  Hard to rate.  I have no sound meter so this is subjective.  Very quiet and sounds wicked.  From the shooter perspective it is slightly louder than my stock gen one M-rod but from 10 feet away it is much quieter than the M-rod.  I rate it as backyard friendly. Unfortunate for the critters.  I wasn't all that worried anyway since I have a couple acres but I would shoot this about anywhere.

Trigger.  I would love to tell you how to imove it but I can't.  Out of the box this trigger is fantastic.  It is light, crisp and just perfect so all I can say is Travis sent this bad boy ready to roll.

Build quality-Excellent.  Everything about this thing screams quality.  It should for the price and it does.  I will do something to mine to make it mine but out of the box I'm not sure how you could ask for more from this AR style air gun.

As I said, new and this is the initial review.  I will continue to add as time goes on.  Yesterday I killed two ground squirrel and the did not so much as twitch.  Ask any questions you have and I will get back to you.

I'm itching to get some field time on my newly acquired WARP .177
Having sent a 100 across the Chronograph and less that a dozen scoped and semi sighted in ..

Have to agree ... so far one SWEET little AR style carbine !
