Airgun Optics and Accessories / Re: New FFP Scope on the way

I'm playing with a Monstrum 4X14X44 FFP scope. There is a definite thing about eye placement, that I notice, but I think I like the scope.....more to come ::)

Had to be around 6 or 7 years old when my father passed me down a Daisy Red Ryder. Not sure how the new ones are but back then if you fired the gun with the lever open it would snap shut like a rat trap....very hard, near enough to break your hand. Well needless to say I guess I just had to do it once and THWAAAP!!!! &$"@! Down on my wee little fingers. Ouch, still remember the pain. Can't say I've done much after that other than shooting at things I should not have been shooting at, typical kid stuff. Haha

Thanks you guys, was a great time. We had about 45 min where it was basically like a long range shooting gallery, they were everywhere. Lol

Well, I looked at those, and I looked at the Leupold VX-Freedom. But I bought this: 1.5-6x44mm Level Rifle Scope by Barska.

What I am trying to do, is use an FFP scope, that I don't have to set at high power to clearly see the reticle. The above mentioned scope was fine (a bit too heavy), but at the lowest power, the reticle was easily masked by even a small bird, especially an HOSP. You can turn on the illumination, but then the crosshairs looked fuzzy unless you were dead center of the eye relief.

The Barska (mentioned) is not an FFP, but it is MOA. This fact (over the MIL dot) makes more sense for me, considering the ranges I shoot at (≤150 yards). Barska does make several FFP with MOZ reticles, but they'e all high power stuff. And my think is, why carry around that extra weight when it is never used?

We shall see.

Check out the SWFA line, a lot of scope for the money.

Final report? I sent it back to Amazon. There were several issues once I got a chance to try it in full daylight. Not good, as the FFP reticle has aberrations (fuzzy edges) at high power, unless your eye was dead center. If my guesstimate was close, you could easily miss a 75 yard shot because of the aberrations.

What I want now is, a 3x9 (40?) FFP with a decent MOA reticle. I can have it made, but the cost would be more than the Cobra I want to use it on. Oh Well!

Bet I'm the only guy who has ever fired his barrel through the Chrony....  :o

I sleeved a barrel with a carbon-fiber tube and then installed it into the receiver with three set-screws, tightened securely against the carbon shell.... The first time I fired it, the barrel came out and flew the length of my shop, skidding to a stop against my target backstop.... After I picked my jaw up off the floor, I went and collected the barrel, and here is what I found....



The carbon-epoxy laminate is very hard (so the screws feel tight).... but has little shear strength.... There was a 1/2" OD O-ring that the end of the barrel seated against in the receiver, so the force on the end of the barrel was the area of that, less the area of the .257 cal bore.... at least 442 lbf. at 3000 psi (maybe 588 lbf. if the barrel started to launch before the pellet moved).... That just stripped the screws right through the outer layer of CF.... I drilled through the CF tube and set the screws into pockets in the steel for the second shot, and no more problems....

 

and NO, I didn't get a Chrony reading on the barrel....  ::)
