Hey Octavius you are moving up in the world, sweet little Cricket. You are going to really like it. Hope all is well with you and the family. 🙂April 6, 2013 at 3:48 pm #170397
Thanks oldguy 😉 Yes everything is ok. I´m very happy with the cricket 😀
For me is enough power 860ft with jumbo heavy.
I don´t know if is it only my feeling that trigger of cricket has veeery long first stage and harder second stage? I’m used to more crisp trigger from HW100…
Has anyone shortened the first stage of the trigger? 💡April 7, 2013 at 5:50 am #170423
I shortened the second stage first. It’s set to 12 oz and short and very crisp. First stage is just turning the clasp. I shortened it one turn. The trigger is really nice for target work or pesting from a rest. For hunters walking around it may be a bit light ( the way I like them).
Its a beaut!
What serial # is it?April 7, 2013 at 6:02 am #170424

Good looking, and I like the black guage much better than the mulit color toy looking one. 😉April 7, 2013 at 9:26 am #170429
knifemaker yes, numbers are better then colors like for analphabet 😡
Secoda – nr.758 😉 Did you one turn CCW that little alan key ?April 7, 2013 at 5:46 pm #170453
I tried today use push on version of weihrauch silencer
Is possible to install but that push on part must be longer in this case because barrel of the cricket has longer space between barrel and thread beginning.
The result is the silencer is out of axis of the barrel because one grub screw in push on part is siting correct on barrel and second one is almost in the thread 🙁
But I fired two times without pellet and sound like me more than original shroud silencer.
Sound result is more damped without sharp sound. I don´t know if I can able to correct describe. 💡April 7, 2013 at 9:42 pm #170471quote octavius:
Wow they are cranking out some Crickets.
On the trigger here is how to adjust.
The hex adjustment is for the second stage. (A at the link)
(I can’t remember how far I adjusted it. I was looking for a trigger feel – I set it to short, crisp, and 12 oz. I do some testing to make sure it is safe but it is not set as a “hair” trigger)
You turn the clevis for the first stage. (B at the link)April 8, 2013 at 12:07 am #170482

Agreed. Luck of the draw. My recently purchased Cricket came with the multi color gauge.
Nice setup on your Cricket.April 11, 2013 at 4:32 pm #170779
Windy shooting from today 🙂 The wind was very erratic. I have used JSB Exact Jumbo 15,89gr
JSB Jumbo Heavy I already consume them and my gunsmith had only this.
I start from 200bar – 110bar
I got 65 shots with power 919ftlb
The last five shots were form 906 to 896 I stop shooting and manometer showed 110bar
I think is it good no?
One picture with 5 shot group to 55 yards.April 11, 2013 at 4:54 pm #170783
Very good. You need to get a good supply of pellets and you live near the manufacturer (any cheaper?). I like your targets too.
I think you mean 919 FPS.April 11, 2013 at 5:35 pm #170787
Hi secoda, I have already adjusted the trigger according your hint 🙂 and now I feel it is better. I have good supplier of pellets but they were sold out right now. I paid for JSB exact jumbo 8€ for 500pieces.
I look forward to windless weather 😀
