Ok Guys, so I got a test kit from S&O, yes the JSB pack. Put my old trusted Falcon T50 on (the other scopes were occupied) and did some quick testing. I don't have a chrony so I was playing with the power settings on the gun, like blindfolding tight rope walking...
JSB Heavy 18.3 = Awesome , had a few flyers but extremely accurate once the power setting is increased
JSB Jumbo 15.3 = Good, didn't like the full power setting, will test some more here as I ordered a bucket load of pellets... lol
JSB Express 13.4 = Lovely at lower power settings, super accurate and fun to shoot
JSB Monster 25.3 = Pellet box killer, didn't like the lower power settings, the moment I went to full power = devilishly fun devastation and my trusted pellet box is now see through as well... blixem.
Wish I could get a sponsor so I can test some more pellets...
First impressions of the FX Impact: small. light and fun. The 480cc bottle is special, I shot about 70 pellets last night and it only dropped from 220bar to 150bar, turned down the regulator last night so I need to retest everything again today... . Should get about 150 -200 shots out of bottle with the Jumbo and preferred power setting. Very versatile gun and a blast to shoot. Added a tripod, also ordered the 0.177 barrel, I want to shoot FT with it... Magazine is a bitch, difficult to get used to and difficult to insert, at least I know my son won't be shooting without my permission - he will not be able to load the thing. In my haste to get it assembled (yes you have to insert the barrel and loading pin), I 'forgot" about the loading pin as it was 'hidden" in the carry case, so I shot it without... oopsie, luckily I was standing on a paved area as a small o-ring suddingly appeared and fell on the ground... I am no gun mechanic but I knew something was wrong, on to the internet - NOTHING. Inserted the loading pin and fired, helluva noise and air blowing out the side... back to the internet - NOTHING again. Then inspector gadget mixed with inspector logic mixed thoughts, almost like a monkey I tried to fit that o-ring into different crevasses that looked big/small enough to fit. Then the lights went on... look IN THE BARREL. yes there is suppose to be a small o-ring 4mm deep into the barrel. After a few anxious minutes to try and get it into position. Voila. quiet gun and the air going in the right direction.
Saturday my family will be without daddy... I am going to shoot until I run out of pellets. (Which might be sooner than later as I only have the test batches) - Sponsor needed please.
Will report back once the chrony and pellet combinations are recorded. Can't wait.
ps: Wify still doesn't know about the gun and I would like the forum members that know me to please shut-up until I can break the news in a nice calm, gun free, romantic environment with flowers.
