I didn't want to hijack Kw2112 thread but if I had to buy a Chrony locally which one should I get and who sells them?
Chrony F1/Alpha/Beta models are popular. I used a Chrony Beta for years until I accidentally killed it with my 6.5 Swedish not long ago. I replaced it with a Caldwell Ballistics chronograph which comes with some nice smartphone features, however I have sadly not used it that much yet to can say whether I like it more or less than my dearly departed Chrony. Check out you local gun shops for options as there are various makes available, your budget will be the main controller here.
Bought my Caldwell from smallarmstrading and the service was good.

What about something like the R2H? From what I have read so far they seem to be great. Friend of mine has one, although I haven't tried it yet. You can use these indoors without additional lighting. You can calibrate them using a few different methods, if needed.

One thing that frustrates me about standard Chronies is that they sometimes differ greatly depending on lighting conditions and calibration. I have shot over multiple chronographs, back to back, with variances of up to 20fps between them. In HFT/FT terms where a power limit is enforced, that's huge.
Air Chrony is the best. They arenít available here even but they offer free shipping so I just bought one. They are really nice and compact so itíll travel easy and come with a bag plus all the cables and such for like $300.
I had a Combro and everyone here has one. They swear by it but mine sucked. I just tried it on my steyr and it wouldnít read. I couldnít even try it on my red wolf because it is 55ft lbs
The lab radar is nice, yes. But they do miss read airrifles a lot because the microphone attachment is not 100% yet. Heinri has one. They also now have a neat stand for it. Everything at a cost ofcourse. They are from Cananda but here itís common to find the complete kit for around $650. Not a price Iím willing to pay for something that isnít as effective with Air rifles.
Also they have some difficulties indoor.
