Amen.  Thursday I had the privilege to meet a WWII veteran.  Not many of those guys left.

What are the stats?

Shots per fill?
50 and 100 yard groups?

Thank you.  That is good food for thought.  I m not in a hurry for this project, so I have time to explore different avenues. I had not thought about bottling this gun, but that may be a good consideration to look at for ease in adjustment.

I have been doing some research on regulators and valves.  If a guy was going to start from scratch with a Mrod 25 cal, what would be a good combination of regulator and valve to achieve best efficiency and shot count with a reasonable FPE?  By reasonable I mean something that will humanely dispatch squirrels and doves out to 100 - 150 yards.  There are so many combinations that I have been trapped in a fog of specs and numbers.  Help, Mr Wizard!

I think it is a good idea.  Keeps us up on all the related issues, particularly the bad publicity ones like this idiot generated.

I took the mag apart and the center wheel with all the scallops passed pellets with no hangups.  So that left the outside case.  I took a Dremel with a sanding wheel and relieved the outside a little and then polished it up.  The mag will now load all three 25 caliber JSBs and cycles nicely.  You would think for $75 for a magazine there would be some checking to make sure it would function with the ammunition the gun was supposedly designed for.

It is basically the same as Mrod, except not all plastic.

The MKIIs fit much better, but I still have to mechanically push one in and it is the same one all the time.  The gun shoots great with  the MKIIs. When I got the 25 cal barrel I ordered two tin of all 3 JSBs to see which ones shoot best.  So far, i like the MKIIs the best, they seem to be more consistent in my gun.

Why would my magazine load the first 5 pellets so loosely and then the rest of them have to be pushed in?  That would leave me to believe that the diameters of the scalloped sections of the mag wheel are not all the same dimension.  It is the same 5 slots all the time.

I will shoot 9 shot groups with the MKIs until they are gone.   ;D

The 25s shoot well enough, but they are not nearly as accurate or consistent as the MKIIs.  So  I will use them for the grandkids when they visit.   8)

The JSB 25s will all drop into the magazine freely.  The MKI heavies drop freely for the first 5 and then they have to be seated (pushed in manually) for the cover to have clearance to rotate.  I can load about 9 pellets this way and have the magazine index while shooting.  More than nine and the magazine will not index.  I only had to "seat" one pellet when I load MKIIs.  I know the skirts on the MKIs are longer than on the other ones but, if there is room to "seat" and the magazine move freely to the next slot, that leads me to believe there is room in the mag for the longer pellets. I'm thinking shouldn't the pellet fall into the magazine?  I wonder if taking a fine sanding disk and “polishing” each of the little compartments in the magazine would solve the problem.  I have seen videos where that is done on the Wildcat mags with goods results.  However, these are expensive magazine and I don’t want to mess one up.  Anyone have similar problems?  What was your solution?

I shot squirrels with my Benjamin Trail Nitro for 6-7 years and got good results out to about 35 yards.  Then the squirrels started getting skittish and I needed more range so I got a used Gen 1 Mrod.  That gave me a good chance of hitting out to 50 yards or better, but 590 yard accuracy was iffy.  Then I read about the BSA R10 and its accuracy and got one used and now my squirrel count really went up and I was popping them out to 60-70 yards.  It was good for about an inch at 50.  Then I got a FX wildcat and it was night and day more accurate than the BSA, as is my Impact.  They both get half an inc h at 50 when I am steady and not shaking.  I guess what I am leading up to here is I have become somewhat of an airgun snob. If it can't do half an inch at 50 I am not interested.  I don't think all the low priced guns coming out will change the market I am in.  However, as guys take the plunge with the "budget" guns and become dissatisfied with the accuracy they will graduate to better guns.  On the other hand, look how many bought the Disco and then made it into something it was not designed to do.  The innovation in the airgun community is amazing and who knows what will be the next "big" bargain gun?

Alan even you with your WARP Cobra have entered the rarefied atmosphere of the "high end" guns. 

The quest for better accuracy and the holy grail of one hole groups at 100 yards is an expensive one, but there are those who will go for it and guns will continue to get more accurate and more reliable.  Which benefit us all.

Wife still has some accent left.  After she talks to her family it is like she never left the South for a few days.

AMEN to that!!!!!  Love those varmints in the cross-hairs.

I see it is confession time.  I will be 70 in one week.  That makes me a kid compared to Bob and Alan.  I feel younger already!
