I start it out.

I’ve never shot my Chrony, but I’ve been mighty tempted.

Ha, I had to go look, I see the hair color stuff in the daughter's old bathroom. Maybe that's why she looks younger than me. ;)

Waiting on your build

Airgun Optics and Accessories / New FFP Scope on the way
« Last post by Alan on May 19, 2018, 04:45:48 PM »
I bought this (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AB2VXIO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) scope as my first foray into FFP. Its reticle is marked in MOA, also a first for me. I printed out a home-made range card in case I get confused. It is red/green lighted too, but personally I find that a distraction.

This scope is going to replace a Hammers which has developed a problem. Somehow, the reticle carrier has rotated. At first, I thought I might be getting a dose of macular degeneration, but today it moved (rotated) when I was moving the vertical axis knob. Now it's evident why I've been missing some shots I should have easily made! I can't complain too much, as I didn't end up paying for it (that's a long story too!).

Once I get it mounted, and sighted in, I'll post an update.

Depending on your needs, 5-6 turns out would be the velocity range I would tune to at that pressure....

Ask Bob / Re: Huma regulator for my Gamo Urban .22

Hello.  In case you have not discovered it yet, here is a hammer-spring adjustment.

Remove the stock.  Then remove the black plastic rear end-cap that slides in under the rear of the bolt.  That end-cap covers a hole that goes into the trigger-group.  Inside of that hole is a 4mm hex head hammer-spring adjustment screw.  It is approximately a 15 turn adjustment from one extreme to the other.  Turn it fully counterclockwise to the stop and it has the least tension (lowest power).  Turn it 15 turns clockwise from that and you have the most tension and highest power from that adjustment. The cocking effort of the bolt is determined by this adjustment also.  The more clockwise the more effort it requires.  Any much further that 15 turns clockwise will make it physically impossible for the gun to cock.  With my gun anything over 10 turns CW from full CCW was more of a waste of air than a gain in power.  For the most shots and I found 6 turns CW to do the trick, although it it drops the power from about 24 fpe to 20 fpe.  I am currently waiting for my new chronograph to come in to test 6.25 and 6.5 turns CW to see if I can get consistent 50 shot strings of 21.5 fpe with JSB 18.13’s which seen to be more efficient with my gun than the H&N 17.9 g Sniper Magnums.

I fitted a Robert Lane Lancet MK9 regulator to the gun, set at 120 bar...  that may change again...  I tested from 70-120 and I am going to play around with 100 through 115 again after I experiment with different transfer port diameters.  Also a shot count of 60 at approximately 20 fpe is possible with less than a 20 fps spread (with 17.9’s, the 18.13’s should do a little better).  This is partly possible because also I replaced my Urban 105 cc cylinder with the 153 cc Buccaneer/Coyote cylinder to make up for the space occupied by the MK9.
