This started life out as a plain Discovery and been modified to a sweet shooter. The Breech is a left hand bolt and take marauder mags. It has the JDS airman kit with the bottle and reg. It has a power adjuster, Boyds thumbhole stock, and a near impossible to get BSA barrel from the UK. A marauder trigger group that is set at a sweet 7.5 oz. There is a adapter 1/2 inch on the end if one chooses to add a LDC. Gun is more than capable of dime size groups if you do your part thanks to the BSA barrel. It's getting 23-25 fpe at it's current setting, but can turn up power if needed. I ran a shot string for this gun and was blown away at what I got. I posted a pic of the sheet as it's too much to type from 18gr jsb 2900 to 900 psi.

Even if you "Short fill"  this gun to 1600 PSI it still gets a 8 mags ( 80+ Shots ) or more ! Give it a full fill to 2900 PSI and it gets almost 170 shots per fill. To be honest, I think it would get even more but I got bored 169 shots in to the string and stopped  ;)

With a little bit of tuning, such as a very easy to replace hammer spring, or a bit of tinkering with the installed power adjuster, you could get even more shots. Want more power ? Again super easy to adjust. At one point this gun was set up to shoot 30 fpe and it got WAY over 100 shots per fill !!


I have well over 900.00 in parts alone in this gun, thats without the machine work costs. Gun comes with one mag.
Price is $625+shipping.

Still available. Had folks tell me they could build this gun for less. Not a chance in heck !!!

Just the barrel and stock are way more then half what im asking. You could not build this exact gun, with machining costs, for well over $1000.00...

Really hate to part this gun out but if I do i'll get more then my asking price. Thanks
