… Well actually just part of it did. The single shot tray I ordered from RC machine. The gun itself is still in the hand’s of FedEx somewhere between here and Illinois. Delivery date was pushed back from tomorrow to Thursday 😡 .
In the meantime I have this to have my way with.
and loaded with a poly tip predator that Anthony sent me years ago.October 16, 2007 at 9:20 pm #25854hellratterParticipant
what kind of velocity are you getting from that tray? 😆 😆 😆 Seriously when you get the rifle let me know if the tray is a tight fit, worried about scratching 😉October 16, 2007 at 9:54 pm #25855
That isnt going into the gun until I’ve sanded down the sides and put a few layers of duracoat on it to protect the gun.
I wish they offered a delrin version.October 16, 2007 at 10:03 pm #25859
I still haven’t heard word of my Wolf, much less got it back in my hands, so I’m living vicariously through YN’s excitement. 😆October 17, 2007 at 12:23 am #25867quote TeflonTron:

You bastard.October 17, 2007 at 3:00 am #25876rob3drParticipant
It appears that you are not going to get a good seal on that tray adapter….sorry to tell you.
I did read about an easy mod somewhere that will fix that. Cheap, too at around .25 cents.
First you’ll need some bubble gum. Chew it up well and stick it to the open side on the adapter where the leak is going to be. …got it? Good.
NOW… when you load a pellet and hold the adapter up to your mouth to blow it out, the gum on the side will press against your lips in the corner of your mouth to create a perfect seal. 😆 Who needs the gun? You’ve got the adapter, you have lungs. You’ll never have to pump or use expensive CF tanks!October 17, 2007 at 3:14 am #25878
I heard that YN gets about 20fpe of puff using that method, but that Adam can get over 80fpe!October 17, 2007 at 3:19 am #25880rob3drParticipant
Could it be that Adam uses the longer pellets?
This is going downhill FAST…..October 17, 2007 at 3:43 am #25882quote TeflonTron:
Its true but I have only been able to do it once and never repeat it again. So I doubt all others who make amazing claims….:lol:October 17, 2007 at 4:20 am #25884quote Adam in SoCal:
Yes, you told me about that. You were in Highschool, right?October 18, 2007 at 2:08 am #25951blackopsParticipant
You got some real perty lips there boy! 😮
TT you’ve got a Wolf on the way! sweet!!! LOL I’ve shot mine like 40 times in my basement 🙄 as I still havn’t found a place to shoot around my house 👿 can’t wait to hear how you like yours .22?
Jim.October 18, 2007 at 2:39 am #25956
Hi Jim. Yes, it’s a .22 indeed. I got it about 10 weeks ago, and then sent it off to PAG to have a shroud made for it. They’ve had it for about 6 weeks, and are meant to be giving me a call this week, so hopefully I won’t have too much longer to wait.October 18, 2007 at 3:19 pm #26016
It came…. No really, I mean it this time.
Fedex guy comes by at 10.00am I open door and the box is sitting up against the porch, I sign the electronic doo hickey and the driver walks off and I pick up the Box…. turn it around as I do so and 😯
Dirty great dent in the Box…. I call the driver back and ask him to stay while I just open the outer box to make sure inner box is intact. He says sure so I open it, and the AA box inside looks fine.
I knew I didnt mind the length that much from shooting cygnusx’s gun a few times, but that was a while ago and I’m a nervous ninny and was starting to worry…. But I can rest easy, gun shoulder just fine, doesnt seem overly long to me at all (But I am over 6″ tall).
Finish on these is really nice – no imperfections on the metalwork, stock is nice. I just got beech because I hunt and dont really want a fancy stock, but even the beech is a well made stock and has a nice little darker wood end cap on the pistol grip and very nice checkering.
Got my scope mounted, I think I picked the right height rings, I think the mediums would have been just a bit too low, but I might buy some just to make sure sometime.
Everyone’s no doubt seen hundreds of pictures of these, so I just took a few pictures of whats different on the newer guns. Shroud is fatter, looks hefty. Side lever works very nicely. I prefer the look of the bolt, but I’m liking the lever just fine.
The end cap is really nicely made, Fluted at the tip
And unscrews to reveal a female 1/2″ UNF thread.
I assumed it was going to be male… will need to get a coupler if I want to use one of the more popular LDC’s… but from what I’ve read I dont need to with the new shroud.
You might be thinking.. he got it at 10… and he’s posting pictures at 11.20, why aint he shooting it… Well.. CYGNUSX has my tank still after borrowing it for the hog hunt. The Hill Pump I have doesnt seem to do anything, maybe because the gun is totally empty, but I dont feel like figuring it out right now. Happy just looking at the gun sitting accross the room…
I’ve thought.. hey this is a nice gun, I’ll keep it with a LOT of my past guns before, but still ended up selling it. I thought it about the Condor, and then again with the BSA S-10. But I KNOW I’ll be keeping this one (unless it breaks..).October 18, 2007 at 4:08 pm #26021
That looks great. Is that end piece in the shroud that is threaded…the female part plastic or aluminum?
For what they are charging it looks like at least they made some nice changes.
BTW they are a bear to fill with a pump from empty. More then one guy had to go find a guy to fill it with a scuba for the first fill. Funny mine came with 1000psi and ready to go.
