I was thinking about a compressor.  I read where 1 guy had his tanks filled for free at the local fire station. I have a few fire fighter buddies that I will check with and see if this is a option. If it is then whats better then shooting the breeze with your buddy and getting FREE air.
P.S. Anyone in the southern michigan/ northern indiana area that wants to test drive a WAR Flex. 25, mutant short .22, or edgun lelya. 20 just let me know.  I would like to attend some airgun events one day also. I missed the one in Kalamazoo MI (about 45 min from me).  Haven't ever met any fellow airgun shooters.  If this rain dies down like it's supposed to, I'll post some groups for you.

Ok so I haven't had time to really play with the flex yet. I can tell you the trigger is very nice. The stock is what it is, Cheap. The replacement will be a magpul fixed moe.  Later on I will add a magpul prs gen3 when it's released. If you have the rifle shouldered then cocking is a breeze.  It is silky smooth but with a decent amount of tension. I have to have my thumb on the rear of gun to help with leverage if its not shouldered. The pellet probe is beefy. It is quiet for its power level. I have a mutant short and think that's plenty quiet. The sound of the round hitting the animal is very loud though. If I had to ask for anything it would be a better factory stock, picatinny rail under where the handle is, 2 magazines, some form of a manual, a target with group shot with the pellet it was setup for, and a shot string. Overall I like it and the fact I can customize easily. Ramble over.... time for pics



Groups will be posted tomorrow for anyone that cares. I will post at least 1 60 yard and maybe a 90 yard.  Once my rings get here and I have a few rounds behind the trigger I'll go to 135. Carry on.....

On carbines and pistols I like left handed breeches, and I'm right handed.

I'm a lefty and my Flex has bolt on right side. I like to be able to keep my left hand on the hand grip and pull bolt with right. I think it works much better this way in the field, on the bench is a different matter.

I agree with BigTinBoat.  I have the mutant switched to left because it is rear cocking. But if you every have the chance to shoot a lefty gun from the bench, try it and report back. My dad's a righty and I'm a lefty. All I've known is right handed guns until the mutant. I don't think the cocking lever helps the mutant other than it doesn't block the check weld. My buddy shoots it righty all the time and he says it doesn't interfere with his check weld. I absolutely knew I could get the flex in lefty version. Been busy, I will report back hopefully in the next few days with some groups. I'm running off one of Joe's guppy tanks right now. Just ordered a great white package, should be here next week. My stock and scope rings showed up, so now time for the cronus to get mounted.  Hunting is taking the majority of my time right now. So be patient.... ;)
P.s. I have to add that travis has wonderful customer service.  I'm new to all this airgun stuff so I'm always bothering him with something lol. ::)

My new great white setup came today. Now I have my stock, scope, rings, chronograph, and a adapter to remove the regulator and bolt tank direct to drop down block. Now I just need to find some extra time. I will tune then shoot and post groups at various distances. This will all happen by next Friday for sure. My guess is I'll find time Sunday to make it happen.  Until then.....
