picked up a BSA R10 mk2 .22
« on: January 20, 2016, 08:30:35 PM »
got it .22 (front) to go with my .177(rear) last friday. brought it home, put on a ffp scope filled it then zeroed for 20 yards. shot the chrony then shot out to 20 and 70 yards and it's accurate. considering out the box nothing adjusted, I can't complain with it's performance so far. once I get the 280cc bottle and huma reg for it and tweak it, I'll most likely buy another one and convert it to .25 using bsa scorpion parts then off to the next rifle.

nice that one has a bit of tiger stripe to the wood

Not sure the R10 set up really has the ummph to do well in .25 though ...but i guess with enough hammer , valve  , reg set points and t port changes it will

ya might wanna look at the bigger Talon Tunes bottle for the .25 version.....but Ido like the 280CC the best ....I tried a 360CC and didnt like it and went to the 280CC

my factory reg did well but seemed to get sticky on 1st fill after sitting in rack it would throw wild shots in string like 40-70 fps higher in string

I was an early adopter of the HUMA when he was on his 1st batch of them for the R10 Huub did a great job on them

the .25 having enough power to push a .25 pellet is something I was thinking about but seeing the hybrid and numbers on it it's doable.
so far this .22 filling to 230 bar I'm not getting the first few shot low but I'm still replacing the reg and bottle. I have some 28.4 and 32.4 eun jin's so I'll test those in it and see what velocity I get with them. I figure I get this gun in all three calibers and I'll be done and on to something else.

Huub did a great job on the regs they have very short stroke so don't start turning the screw wildly if you are adjusting them.  If I remember correctly when I asked Huub the top end designed setting was 140 bar.  If the reg was set for FAC levels (full power) your choice to get that .25 moving will be better flow via valves ports and a dialed in hammer blow.  280CC  will get you some shots but at the .25 consumption level ya might wanna go bigger to the Talon Tunes one.   Whats cool is ya already have 280CC on hand and can try one on with a .25 tune and decide "IS it enough shots?" 

Once again I think ya got a good slab of walnut on that one cant wait to see it walnut oiled and them stripes come out

yeah, I did luck up on that stock, much nicer than my .177. I wish ginb still made stocks
my .22 is currently pushing jsb 18.1's at an avg 865 I know I can get it to 900+fps so I would think pushing 18-25gr .25 pellets in that range should be possible with very little modifications. I'm about to try shooting those eun jins and see what I get with an out the box rifle.

based on the two I have, I would recommend one being best bang for the buck for a regulated pcp and an accurate one at that.. mine was good to go out the box, still haven't done anything to it.

I took mine out this weekend finally and what a great rifle... Just bought mine new from Airgun depot. I've never been able to shoot such tight groups at fifty yards. Mine is completely out of the box.

I got a good deal on a used R10 a few months back.  It had the Huma regulator and came with the old stock one as well.  It is a great shooter.  From reading the BSA forum, the only problem with the gun seems to be the original regulator fails pretty often withing the first year.  That was about the only downside I could find.  I love the gun.

I just picked up one of these in .177 however a black wrapped one. After selling off most my guns for it I'm hoping it lives up to all your guts accuracy wise! Reg will probably be replaced eventually along with a 280cc bottle.

Looking at some of the comments on the BSA group, it seems that the stock regulator does not last very long before it has issues.  Most were saying about a year.  Then they went to after market.  Mine came with a Huma.  I really like it.  I think you will like it also.  Very quiet and accurate.  Got to ask, why .177?  From your other posts I would not think it would have the oomph for your kind of hunting.

Why .177? I like the challenge of it for me to practice my best for shooting. Most my hunting is sparrows and starlings right now and 30fpe isn't necessary IMO  ::) I plan on making my WARP a .22 and I know if I have another .22 I'll never shoot it over the WARP. However .177 I can plink alot if I want also and I wanted one of these sexy guns since I first saw them and I made it happen at the cost of others though  :'(

Well, that makes good sense.  Right now I have the Mrod, Condor, and the R10 all in .22.  I think the Mrod may be sold and am waiting on a guy to make up his mind about the Condor.  Getting a .177 for plinking seems like a good idea.  I'll make sure the wife knows it was your idea.  ;D

If the Mrod doesn't sell I may just get a TJ barrel and convert it to .177.  Although the reviews on the new Benjamin pcp look good.  You can get one for the cost of a new barrel.
