    Congratz on a nice pup! Since it is used it might already be very smooth. I simply took out the hammer, polished it to a mirror sheen and cleaned out some filthy oil. Then lubed with archoil AR8300 synthetic grease. I then did the same to most moving parts behind the cocking plate.

    The trigger was so sweet I did not touch it.

    The barrel has been polished for better accuracy etc.

    So far I love it, will shoot some more this weekend. Have not even emptied one tin of pellets yet.

    Oh, and sweet looking rifle!

    Very nice setup. What a great group you shot. Looks like Ole Villdo did a great job on your gun. You can learn a lot from Ville, wish I was closer to him. I’d drink his beer…… :18:

    First off…great shooting…second off, cool-ass compact, looks like a real keeper…… and thirdly….I grew up in Sweden and your forest pictures bring it all back. I spent all of my free time in the woods behind our house, in Lidingö with my Crosman Powermaster 760. The best of times…..albeit a looooong time ago. Thanks for the photos.
    And yes, I’m originally from TX and you don’t cozy up to a log in the forest there….but I remember that Sweden doesn’t have that problem…I just had to remember that when I went back to TX for a visit…then i had to start looking down for snakes again when I walked through the woods…

    Cheers,

    Wow, that is a great post! Thanks for sharing, it warmed my heart. That place is actually my old shooting place back when all I had was a Hatsan springer, check this old video out of mine https://youtu.be/8B651D0qgLE

    I came back there recently an cleaned it up, I was there just 30min ago doing some 101m shooting so pics coming up later, just need to do some stuff first.

    Happy shooting my friend :4:

    OK! so here are my results for todays 101m or 110 yard shooting session. First off, here is some random pics



    Ok, so I shot these Groups, and they are all pretty much around 1,7-1,8″ CTC. However if you take away some bad shots some are great, here is four shots within an inch and the fith making it 1,7″



    Here are Another four within and inch


    Three shots within one centimeter

    Here are all four…


    As you can see some shots are very consistant within 1″ but other shots ruin the groups. this is shot with about 5 mildot holdover but next time I will probably zero the scope at 100 and keep practicing, I have high hopes and shooting have not been this fun since the old beercan vs springer Days

    If you’re shooting at known distances for practice, why don’t you dial your turret 5 mils instead of using holdovers? Btw, how do you like the reticle? To me it looks okay.

    Easier to just holdover. I like the reticle, it is good that the mildots are their own dots with nothing attached because it makes holding over much easier/cleaner. What I do not like is all the empty space around the reticle, I think they could have used that for extra holdover markings instead but it is not neccessary. Next time I will dial in and zero at 100.

    This is just my humble opinion but zero it at whatever range you shoot at the most. 25, 50, 75, etc. 100 m/yd zero is pretty far for an airgun. Like I said, dial the turrets for a 100 yd range so you’re using your reticle at dead center. That’s why scopes have turrets right? It’s not just for zeroing. Practicing holdover is good for hunting situations too but that doesn’t seem to be what you’re doing by re-zeroing at 100.

    If I dial to 100 it is zeroed at 100 😉

    + 1 ! I use the turrets rather than the reticle.
