Supposed to be delivered tomorrow. Interesting that the velocity was lowered from the same weight pellet.
I need to get a chrony.
Been spending lots of time at optics planet but can’t decide between a high end scope that’ll last forever (trijicon makes a ffp 1-8 power) or a decent budget scope.September 27, 2018 at 12:38 pm #276284quote jcjc:
The pellets aren’t the same weight. I started out shooting Edgun 10.3 pellets shooting 895 fps. I swapped to JSB monster Diablo weight 13.3 shooting 775. Seems like a pretty big drop for 3 grains.September 27, 2018 at 1:36 pm #276285
My mistake, I misread. Gonna try and get some shooting in this weekend and see how it performs.September 27, 2018 at 1:53 pm #276286
jcjc how far will you be shooting? I’m limited to 30 yards. I’ve got mine sighted in at 15 yard. Killing sparrows out at 30 yards not a problem.September 27, 2018 at 4:19 pm #276287
Prolly 30 yards as well. I go to a buddy’s house to shoot and thats what we have marked off. There’s also a 50 yard distance that I may try and set up for as well.September 28, 2018 at 12:36 am #276289
Here’s a pic with the bug buster attached and still a bit of styrofoam debris on the gun from the packing material. I was glad to see that it arrived with two mags. I shot two mag’s worth of pellets thru it and I’m really liking the electronic pressure gauge. So far it seems to be a very robustly made, well engineered piece of kit. It definitely doesn’t cycle as smooth as the bolts on my FX rifles but that’s to be expected.September 28, 2018 at 2:02 am #276290
Great looking bullpup ya got there jcjc! Yep I wasted a bottle of air blowing off the styrofoam off mine.October 2, 2018 at 7:26 pm #276326
Thanks, I’m happy with the quality of walnut used.
Didn’t have a chance to shoot at my friend’s place so I set up a 20 yd range here. Sighted the scope in (not a fan of the BugBuster) and proceeded to easily stack pellets. Put about 6 mags thru it and thoroughly enjoyed the ergonomics of the rifle and high shot count of the 177 caliber. A definite improvement over my other Leyla in terms of follow up shot speed and ease of handling. The simplicity of Edguns is another attribute I admire.October 4, 2018 at 1:40 am #276342
Mine was just shooting the 10.3 to hot. so I dropped the reg to 85b. Got it aired up will check it in the morning.October 4, 2018 at 4:17 pm #276354
85b dropped the speed down 870 fps. Am all the way off the hammer adjust prolly drop it to 75b. After I get it shot down.
Removing the air tube, take the stock off cock the gun put it on safe unscrew one 4mm Allen screw and pull the air tube.
The wedge device you unscrew can fall out after pulling the air tube. I just leave it in place and screw it back tight to hold it in place.October 20, 2018 at 4:46 am #276416irideParticipant
You really seem to like your 177 caliber guns,
Is there a reason you are a 177 gun type person, ?

Very interested in this AG,as I use my current guns for squirrel hunting and the compactness is VERY attractive. Assuming that accuracy out to 50 yards is spot on. Any contributors as to accuracy?October 20, 2018 at 9:07 pm #276431
Hey Mike I shoot the .177 cause most my shots are between 27 ft to 20 yards. It just seems wise to shoot .177 cause houses are so close. Both neighbors sideways have had squirrel & starling damages to their houses. Other houses are renters so we don’t talk much. Most neighbors at work when I’m shooting.October 21, 2018 at 4:31 am #276438irideParticipant
Most of my shots are 38 to 48 yards , Got a lot more houses around me , (boomtown).
Just the impact of the 22 and 25 pellets is loud, Now with the 177 I take a lot more chances , And I myself just fell better taking out a sparrow with the 177, Now where I live its 100% legal to shoot PB as long as you have a safe back stop.
But I keep it on the down low as our guns do not look like the average pellet gun.
