The classified section contains some old adds for stuff that has to have sold.  Can we adopt a policy of a 90 day listing or something to eliminate year old adds for stuff?

Anyone have any experience with this?  There are reviews on Amazon from guys filling guns with it that like it.  According to the add it fills tanks and the whole 9 yards.  So, an electric compressor for less than a CF tank.

So I have a WARP in 25 cal with a 12 inch barrel. I will probably add a 15 or 16 inch 30 cal eventually but I think I also want to try a bull pup.  So, if you have one, what are your likes/dislikes.  I am very picky about my trigger so that has to be crisp and light.  I like .25 and maybe ,30 but no larger since I live in CA and have no real use for big bore or .357/9mm, we can't shoot anything with it other than ground rats anyway and a .25 is more than enough.  I'm looking for real feedback.  If you chose to recommend a retailer that would be fine but if you want to talk trash about a retailer please do that in a PM.  I don't want to start a thread that goes south in a hurry if you catch my drift.

Silent and shot count are also things I am concerned with.

Midway has the 4-14 and 6-24 both at $250.00 (ish).  I have the 4-14 and really like it a lot.  Best deal on a scope I have seen in a long time.

Contests, Give aways and more. / WARP .25 loaded

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. 

PCP, C02, and Helium Powered Airguns / The rabbit hole
« on: June 22, 2016, 09:12:30 PM »
How deep does this rabbit hole go?  I started out looking for a Depinger got my M Rod and now I want a
Cricket or Vulcan .25 Bull Pup
As it happens this fits perfectly with a pay cut and my wife insisting we sell the place out of the city so the commute is more reasonable.  I can't even argue with her on that, this mountain drive i killing our cars and my 2 and 4 YO spend their life in a car seat.

I have had a lot of fun and learned a lot about what an air rifle can be with all the new teck.  Now I just have to pick one.  Oh what, was than an AA Ultimate Sporter?  and look over there, an FX .30   So many guns, so little time.

Come on Super Lotto.

So I see everyone loving the HAWKE optics.  There is one little thing I noticed that urks me anbout them and a lot of other makers.
Adjustment Click Value: 1/4 MOA
Reticle: 1/2 Mil-Dot

I know, a small thing but not really.  Make up your mind and pick one, Mil-Dot OR MOA.  The Mil-Dot reticle has really become the standard so why do most scope makers keep MOA click adjustments? You could change the reticle to MOA-Dot.  I don't really care but make the two match.  You don't see mixing of metric and standard in any other application ut optics manufactures have done this forever.   I am sure ALL of them will see it urks me and fix it now.

Ok, I'm done complaining for today...for this AM...well for an hour or so.

Im 51.  I cut my teeth on a Crossman 760. I have A Sheridan Silver Streak, a Mrod 25. I had and sold a springer. I bought a Crossman NP Trail XL .25 for my father in law that we can't get to shoot (Tried 20 pellets).

I have a lot of Exp. with powder burners. I have shot competitively in Rifle, shotgun and hand gun.  I bought the Mrod gen 1 right after it came out and am now getting more into this PCP field. It looks fun and with kids it is much less than playing with powder burners AND they will be able to play very soon.

I have a tendency to be a bit of a smart ass so... you have been warned. 

So I am looking at getting a new CF tank 70CF or 90CF (Scuba size).  I need it to not be a scuba tank so my paint ball store can fill it.  I see them at Pyramid Air but they are regulated to 2900, same for Air Guns of AZ.  If I want a little more freedom in filling my gun because I am capable of watching an air guage, what do you suggest?  I really don't want to buy a compressor.  I could use that money for another gun and am not handy.  It sounds like everyone who gets one has to work on it to make it work.  I am not that guy.

I would like to be able to fill to about 3500 because some of the larger air guns will need those fill pressures.

Big Bore Airguns / Fresno area flex? Mrod rebuild?
« on: June 02, 2016, 06:58:24 PM »
Hi all.  I'm new to PCP. Been shooting a stock Mrod 25 and love it but now I want to upgrade the old and also pick up a flex.  Given the price I would really like to go pop one off a few times before dropping the cash.   If anyone in here would let me try your flex I would sure appreciate it.  I'm a busy dad but with any luck at all someone will be able to make this happen.  My actual location in about 30 min north of fresno but I can travel to try one of these.

While I'm at it, I am thinking of puthing a wicked lift on the old Gen one Mrod.  I'd like to here from someone that put in the parts (valve, debouncer, ect...).  Difficult?

Thanks for the input.
