Edgun Matador R3 .25

Postby Dekan » Thu Jul 07, 2011 4:53 am

Just to enrich this forum with my beauty.
This new wallnut looking crazy, for me looking better then painted stock.
Wood patern looks like having some stripes all over stock.
Looks like tiger :lol:
I dont know is that case only with my rifle or it will be on all rifle stocks.
Anyway, thanx a lot Ed for sending me this beauty. :4:

Hello Dekan, Welcome to the Edgun owners club!

I have a R3, .25 caliber Long version ordered. What MV are you getting with 25.4 grain JSBs?

Thanx guys.

I was thinking about walnut stock same thing. Like painted is better, high-tech look.
But after saw my walnut stock I changed my mind pretty fast :)
Now gun have more style. You will love it.

Didnt tested rifle with JSB King, still waiting pellets from abroad.
Gun is practicly new, I just shoot maybe 100 pellets till now.

When you expect your Matador?

That's the best EdGun wood stock i've seen yet. :shock:

It's real wood and not some crappy mahogany variant.



I like the wood and the black equally now. 8-)

That is +- 55 FPE

Postby Jumetrog » Sat Jul 09, 2011 9:34 pm

What pellet are you using or wish is the recommended pellet for that barrel and speed?
I also have .25 long Matador R 2.5, and I'm interesting how the new .25 R3 is set out of the box.
Thank you for your answer

Ed recommend JSB King 25.4 grain. Speed 295-305 m/s, on that speed you will get 75J.
Still waiting for my JSB King, then I will test Matador and what speed I get with JSB on Ed settings.

Length

Postby Hoot » Mon Jul 11, 2011 3:21 pm

How long is the .25 Edgun?

I know it comes in the Long version, but is it available in any other length in .25 caliber?

Nice looking wood, lots of grain and "fiddleback" lines in it. That has to be old growth hardwood. Not much of that available here in the U.S.

I know one thing, after I saw the smack down power of the .25, I'll never be satisfied with a .22 again.

Hoot :shock:

As I know, .25 comes only in long version.
But you need to ask Ed about that.
Maybe he can make you some shorty .25 Matador :D

Full lenght 89cm
barell 59cm
barell + silencer 73cm
silencer 14cm

I am used to firearms, like AK and other shit, this is my first air rifle and I am very impresed with power.
Nice power packed in legal rifle :1:

Oooh, Is that a range-finder built into the scope? Very cool. 8-)

Welcome, Dekan! And thank you for the photos and video. The shroud is definitely redesigned. Is it fixed to the barrel, or can you unscrew it (like the R2 shrouds)?

I'm with you on the Walnut stock. When I first read that Edguns were going to have a natural wood stock, I thought, "Oh no, here we go again." But, looking at yours, I'm inclined to agree. I think I'd trade in my grey stock for one of those (and I really like my grey stock).

Looks like it might be a bushnell yardage pro. I would be interested in a review of how well it works, especially with the Matador .25.

Expensive scope

Postby Hoot » Tue Jul 12, 2011 11:58 pm

The Bushnell Yardage Pro is quite expensive, about $600 to $700 dollars.

It does have an interesting adjustment that combines with the laser yardage to make POI adjustments, but I have no idea how it works. I'm not sure if this scope would offer any real accuracy increase at the ranges we shoot, but the yardage display is certainly interesting.

Hoot :shock:


It's a beautiful stock! I also was on the fence about a wood stock but the depth of beauty that stock has is amazing and well worth having.
I had e-mailed Tony yesterday concerning my Edgun Standard 2.5, 22 cal. shipment I received yesterday and I happened to ask him if it was possible to order a .25 cal in a Standard. "Nyet" was the response.
So the long version seems to be the only option available at this time.

Thank you Ted, I learn a lot from your videos :wink:

I tryed to unscrew just silencer from barell but failed.
Need some better tool, that not damage metal aloy.
Will try to disamble Matador, but not right now, I didnt even proper tested rifle.
And I dont think that shroud is removable.

Scope is Bushnell yard pro laser scope 4-12x44
Here is nice review on that.
http://www.chuckhawks.com/bushnell_yard ... _scope.htm

Hoot,

I wanted burris eliminator, but for use him you need to know bullet drop on 500 yards when zeroed on 100y.But pretty cool toy.
So I decide to buy Bushnell, he comes with bullet drop compensation elevation turrets, for each caliber. I even have blank turret so I can calibrate that turret for my JSB King, after that you dont need to calculate anything, just aim, see distance, few clicks on turret and you have one dead target :lol:
