I have some old numbers here http://talonairgun.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=34499&start=100#p356557
I am trying out some different hammer springs from Greg at the momentApril 17, 2016 at 7:08 am #251180April 17, 2016 at 7:12 am #251182quote octavius:
Very nice! Did your cricket preform well straight away with Gregs hammer spring or was there a bit of break in time?April 17, 2016 at 7:17 am #251183
When I changed Greg´s 2″ spring and set regulator to 130bar I got immediately perform well. Spring is not squeezed anymore and doesn’t friction in the chamber. Here is 22°C and i got with 269-270mps 20bar/14stots I think is great success. Whenever I shot at 50m is possible hit the target at 15mm 😉April 18, 2016 at 11:44 am #251259
I couldn’t bring myself to superglue the mounting ring to the camera so I just drilled and tapped three grub screws into the ring. Then I can remove it if I ever need to (and I did since the my Exilim camera needed repair after the first week of use!)April 18, 2016 at 3:09 pm #251265quote clgraham82:

Welcome to the Extreme Cricket Makeover 2016!!
What before was a 4,8kg monstrosity (with bipod) has now gotten a bit of a Makeover. This is how it used to look:
Now the Delta 4,5-30×52 scope has been replaced with a SWFA 12×42 MQ scope and the PLB stock with a custom walnut one. Sooo without further ado, the moment we’ve all been waiting for….
I have both the walnut cheek piece and the synthetic one. Wich one do you prefer or perhaps no One?
This gun is now very easy to carry, as you can see by the angle of it there is no way in hell it will scrape the ground when it is in my grasp
So, what do you guys think? It now weighs 3642gJuly 1, 2016 at 6:18 pm #255751
Very nice. Weight is great with the scope.July 1, 2016 at 6:53 pm #255755
Keep the wood cheek piece. The plastic one by comparison looks like ass. Your polish barrel looks a bit out of place though. I chucked the trigger guard that came with my stock. It didn’t look right and I’m trying to make something more fitting. You ended up with a nice piece of wood though. Was that an up-charge or did you simply get lucky? If you got your adjustable shoulder pad painted/anodized black along with blacking out the barrel it would look killer.July 1, 2016 at 7:01 pm #255756
Got lucky :8:July 1, 2016 at 8:30 pm #255760
Good… for weight but barrel was better before (original one black) cheek piece use wood for sure – plastic is out….
Make some pictures through the scope cam 🙂 THXJuly 1, 2016 at 8:36 pm #255762
If the barrel is an issue I can put the same Carbon fiber wrap on it that is on the shroud. The synthetic cheek piece is about 10x more comfortable and better in every way except looks. But I might use the Wood one just for looks.July 1, 2016 at 10:24 pm #255766
While the wood looks great I believe an oil finish would make it look gorgeous.

How do you know that is not an oil finish?
