Here's a video I made of it. I used this video to enter a contest at OnlineMetals.com for a chance to win $250 worth of metal.  That's the reason for no narration in the video.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

umm no,  hold your index fingers and thumbs out on both hands and close the rest. the one that makes a capital L is the left. comb on both sides of stock, bolt handles on right makes it predominately right handed gun.

Reeaal Nice work ;). Looks like you spent quite a bit of time in the shop.
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Grinding out a living on the farm.

Thanks everyone.
I did a double cheek because my right eye gets tired easy nowadays. I'm left eye dominant and need to be shooting left handed anyways.
Fill is 2900psi.
I'm getting 5 shots per fill. Last shot string was 869, 871, 870, 870, 869.

110gr BBT's =184FPE
