This is my kit. Bottom of the range ... chinese made.
Everything included (scope, rifle, 10lt scuba tank, bipod ...) only set me back +-R5700
The rifle was shooting great when I received it doing about 1050fps with 8.44gr JSB pellets. Since then it has been tamed and is doing about 12ftlbs now. Turning down the rifle consited out of the making of a new striker spring guide(wich lightens the strker spring tension), replacing the striker adjustment screw with a longer one (adjustable while the gun is assembled ... losing the safety though) Another plus of turning down the power is I fill my gun to 95Bar and shoot it of to about 50Bar for about 50-60 shots, this means I use my 10lt scuba bottle a long time before refilling.
The trigger was also set to have no first stage, a little bit lighter pull and was bent a little to get it straighter (was very curved). Another couple of precautionary steps where taking to ensure nothing else on the gun fails prematurely.
The length of pull on this gun I found was a bit too much so I removed the rubber butplate and replaced it waith a piece of hard carpet while I work on a new one.
A silencer was made and fitted, those of you that don't know a pcp has a report that sounds like a .22 rimfire if not silenced.
QD sling swiwels and studs where fitted to attach the Leapers/B-Square bipod and a sling. These bipods works great and are constructed from aluminium which makes them very lightweight.
A Leapers 4-16X56 IR SWAT (30mm tube) scope with Sun shade, flip-up lens covers and big side-wheel was fitted. This gun is mostly used for some informal plinking/target shooting and hunting. The IR is great when shooting in the evening. Picture quality is good and the mildots are easy to use once you know your trajectory.
The pellet pouch was also made by myself and works great either on the rifle sling or on my belt. The pouch is opened and close very easily. No more noisy pellets.
As for accuracy on this gun, when quality pellets are used one hole groups are to be expected when you know what you are doing.
A big thanks to Guido for sourcing the scope and bipod and also the very nice JSB pellets.
Thanks to Warrick for the tips concernining the operation/maintanance of the gun.
Thanks to IT-Man for the use of his chrony.
