    I don’t find it super comfortable and it is heavy to drag into the Field. However I have only used it once so I really can’t give it a fair judgement. I think if I used it a few more times I would get used to it and maybe like it more.

    Nice looking Cricket Compact. Is the carbon wrap easy to remove in that it won’t leave any goo or adhesive residue? I was thinking of doing the same thing on my S410’s shroud and air tube to mask the scratches. Also, am I correct in thinking that your scope’s parallax adjustment is done at the rear via that attached dial/knob?

    Yes, that knob makes it super easy to dial the parallax.

    I would think it is very easy to remove this wrap, the thing about 3M wrap is that is is a thick sheet with a nice “semi-sticky” underside. It sticks but not in a way that will make it hard to remove I think. I once used some cheap china wrap and it was completely different, instead it was a very thin sheet that was super sticky and it was indeed hard to remove and left lots of residue. I don’t think you will have any issues if you go with the good high quality stuff. :2cents:

    Cricket, what brand and model is your scope? Does it have variable magnification? Also, whom did you purchase it from and for how much?

    The synthetic stock weighs 1375 grams

    The walnut stock weighs 710 grams. It is almost half the weight…

    You have a PM, for anyone else interested my specific type of throwlever is called a scope coaster. So just Google it and you will find something like this

    So I haven’t shot my Cricket for a while now, I think it has been about 3, maybe even 4 months since I last had a serious shooting with it for various reasons.

    Today I decided to do some quick chrony shooting in the garage just to check it was still functioning properly. And also I have some parts coming in for it, like a new airtube wich means I will have to disassemble the gun in order to swich out that tube. I thought it might be Nice to compare before and after chrony results.

    I shot One mag of 18gr and One of 16gr, all in M/s

    JSB 18,13gr

    Looks ok, I did not bother hooking it up to the computer in order to get more accurate results (decimals rather than rounded numbers)
