The Super Sonic was awesome.  When burned around active fish the strikes were arm wrenching.  No I don't make a mold for it.  I may at some time make a mold similar to it.  I think it would take a lot of experimentation to get that fish maddening buzz just right.

« on: December 07, 2017, 10:35:31 AM »
This was the first foster probe adapter I made for my old Cricket.  Its made of 416 Stainless.  Its not perfect.  Its a hair too long.  That means if you push it in firmly all the way the o-ring is to close to the other side and it will not fill.  Just stop a little short of all the way and it fills fine.  I used as it is for months until I misplaced it.  Then I made another one that I passed along with the gun when I sold it.  The other day I found this one on my design desk. 

I don't know if the Cricket probe is the same as any other probe or not.  Sorry.  The Cricket is the only gun I have owned that didn't have the Foster style quick connect. 

Make an offer if you think you can use it. There is a guy selling adapters on Ebay made out of brass if you prefer.  Your offer must be more than shipping in a priority mail envelope.  I am not going to pay you to take it.  LOL. 

If you ask me to pack it some other way in some other packaging your offer is automatically rejected.  I have priority mail envelopes handy in the shop and its easy to ship that way for me. 

First image is of the probe.  The other image is just for fun.  You do not get a crankbait mold with the probe.  LOL. 

I have never seen the "starting pressures" of bullets listed, and while I won't argue with them,

Wouldn't that be the chamber pressures listed in the SAAMI specs?

1.  I'll post some pics this afternoon.  Got an appt this morning. 

2.  I don't know.  Depends on the fill level.  At 300 bar around 50 or so.  Maybe more.  The gun says 300 bar, but the manual says 250 bar.  I think they don't want you storing it at 300 bar.  When I know I am going to be shooting I fill it to 300. 

3.  Yes.  Shot speed is pretty consistent. 

 I do not think I have the original box, but I'll look.

I get the same sort of thing in the mold business.  Had a customer contact me about a certain style mold.  I said I could make it for them custom or for much less add it to my stock library.  Either I wasn't going to make one unless somebody bought one. 

They said sure, "The cheaper price sounds great.  We don't care if you sell it to other folks.  We just want one."   

After it was done according to the agreement and description I sent it to them and added it to my website.  A few days later they said it wasn't what they wanted, and it was obviously just a stock design I had sent them since it was on my website hoping it would do instead of making them what they wanted. 

Wadda ya do?  It was what was described and agreed, but they claimed I just pawned off a preexisting design on them.  Even after I showed them their own emails.  Oh well.  All you can do is the best you can do.

Seriously thinking about selling my .25 Cricket. $1190 shipped in the CONUS. Its dusty (my shop is dusty), but there is nothing wrong with it. I really enjoy shooting it, but I could use some short term cash. Its pretty darn accurate. I can shoot a penny size group at 50 yards. Well not every time, but that's me. Not the gun.

I won't knowingly ship to a restricted state or region.

Payment by Paypal for goods. I will send a PayPal invoice.

Comes with enough spare magazines to fill the magazine holder in the stock.

Sorry guys I have to drop out on this one. 

Hill .25 valve with lightest valve spring, Huma reg set around 1900psi with hill hogged out gauge port, LW hammer SSG and ports opened to .187. can easily hit 50fpe with reg at 2100psi. That's the crazy part I have less than 200ccs of air that im getting that many shots from. Bunch of people getting 40 shots at 40fpe on the GTA with very similar setups.
  If I dialed down to 40 FPE I could easily get 40 plus shots maybe 50 if I spent a lot fo time on it, but you said you were getting 100. 

Your on the list Bob! Im excited as well cause with my current settings on my .25 Mrod im looking at roughly 100 shots on a 3200 fill at 40fpe. Add the extra 400-500psi that I can fill to were talking a crazy amount of shots  ;D

That's insane.  How are you getting that much usable energy.  I'm getting 26-27 shots (and about 12 more still pretty good ones) at about 46FPE with pretty flat velocity from 3000 to 2450 with my current tune with a 360cc 3000PSI bottle.  I had to ream out my valve a lot to even get the energy, although now I can tune it hotter than that if I like. 

Ok I am in. 

Tube, Drop Block, Bottle, Regulator set at 2500 PSI. 

Now I am excited to get on this.  I plan to use it to replace the bottle setup on my .25.

Then I'll swap my current bottle setup over to my .177 Marauder.  It gets about 90 (+/-) shots at 20+ FPE now.  With a bottle kit it might get 200.  LOL.  (Its internally regulated to 1900 PSI.)

Sorry guys.  I have to drop out. 

Just one more question I think.  What is the pressure rating of the bottle (repeat) and if the bottle is rated to handled greater than 200 bar (3000 PSI apx) is the regulator designed to handle greater input pressure as well? 

P.S.  I am probably in for a "kit", but bottle, regulator, adaptor depend on stuff I don't yet know.
