Good to know there is a magazine for escapes , bummer the eunjins don’t fit . Who sells the Mags , and are they compatable with a stock Escape UL ? Wonder if the domed Eunjins fit ?February 6, 2016 at 7:59 pm #245314birdmanParticipant
Back Roads , sorry , I was thinking of my Vulcan . The EJ’s will not rotate in its magazine . My Talon SS has no problems shooting
the 43 gr. pellet . All Airforce guns are single shot only and do not have magazines for them . Sorry for the mix-up .

Yea i have a couple tins of the eun jin pellets and they do shoot great in my escape ul. I just like how good the jsb heavy shoot. They group better than the eun jins in mine. I am placing an order with Tony for the QC tophat and some other goodies. Also will be getting my new chrony in the mail this coming week.February 14, 2016 at 5:25 pm #246229
I got my new chrony yesterday so I decided to start from scratch. I set my top hat out to where the breech closes smoothly so I know I have my top hat out to its maximum power. I set my power wheel to 4/0 and just took 8 shots over the chrony and here is my results. This string is with the jsb king 25.39gr pellets.
I am just going to leave it like this for a day because I get my QC top hat from Anthony in the morning and will be installing it tomorrow evening and do some real tuning on Tuesday. For now I was just wanting to see what the gun is shooting at with the stock top hat. Do these numbers sound about right for a stock setup on an escapeUL? Also this string had a starting pressure of 3000psi and after the 8th shot the pressure is at 2300psi.March 13, 2016 at 2:08 pm #248601
Ok, i have not gotten to shoot much in the past week but i do have my escapeUL shooting at 930fps using the jsb king heavy pellets and it is grouping great. I have also polished the barrel at the breach and installed the Super Sear 2 from AOA and it works great. Trigger pull is really low and now i don’t have to worry about pulling a shot because of a stiff trigger. Hopefully the rain holds off for a couple hours today so i can get some shooting in.March 22, 2016 at 7:20 pm #249562
Taking it out to 100yrds today. Just got done shooting across the chrony and doing a little tuning with the power wheel and I have it shooting the JSB King Heavy 33.95gr pellets at an average of 887fps and that is with a 2700psi fill and after 10 shots I am down to 2300psi. It is really windy here but the wind is blowing from directly behind me towards the target. I am shooting some out dated beers today. lol If all goes well I plan on throwing the iPhone on the scope and record some it. I will post my results later this evening.March 23, 2016 at 12:05 am #249578
Well the wind was horrible today and from where I was positioned at, when the wind did blow it was always from my back. I was shooting from the back deck of my parents house so once the pellet traveled about 10yds it would then get pushed around in the wind and I could not read it very well. So I brought the cans of beer and a target to find my hold and it was on after that point. I did get some on video but don’t know how to upload a file that big from home. I am on satellite internet so it would take forever and they would probably slow my internet down for awhile after it. I may take my pc to work with me one day and upload it from there. But anyways my escape UL was shooting really good today and my arms and back are killing me from all the pumping I did today. Has any of you went through well over an entire tin of 350ct pellets in one day of shooting? I did today, I shot around 400 pellets in one day of shooting. And I don’t even want to know how many pumps I did. But I would do it all again tomorrow if I could but I won’t get to shoot again until sunday when I am off. I also was shooting paint balls off of golf tees at 50 yards and that was harder and more fun than shooting the beer cans at 75yds. One good thing that I found out today was if I zero for 50yrd than when I try to shoot at 100yrd I run out of turret by about 1mildot. So I am going to have to install the adjustable scope rings back on the gun. They work great but they sit too low without a raised mount under them so I took them off and went back to my weaver mounts and riser to get the scope up enough for a comfortable sight picture. Sorry for the long post guys, I am just happy to get as much shooting in as I did.March 31, 2016 at 10:01 pm #250104onebaddjParticipant
Man thats a sick paint job on there. Nice work. Glad you got this thing running good and getting to shoot it.July 6, 2016 at 3:10 pm #255937
This past holiday weekend I took my escapeul to my brothers to do a little long range targeting. Let me start off by saying that we did not get any video this time so hopefully you guys will take my word until I can get video proof hopefully this coming weekend when I go back down. I have my gun tuned for 10 shots averaging 976fps shooting 25gr jsb exacts. Shooting water bottles at 100yrds was getting boring. You could hit it 10 out of 10 times. So from where we had the bench setup on the front porch he has a long 4×4 that he sat in the ground out at his farthest fence line. The top of the post is exactly 8ft high. The last time he ranged it, it was right at 200yds to the post. So I walked a water bottle out to the post and sat it right on top of it. I used chairgunpro to get an estimate to find the hold over and it was close enough for me to stand near the target while my brother took shots at the bottle. Lucky for us the weather was perfect that entire day and the wind was almost non existent. It was perfect for shooting. He took 10 shots and was close enough for the next 10 shots and I was able to walk him in on each shot until he was actually able to hit the water bottle. It was so cool being out near target and hear the pellet come zipping in at 200yds and smack the bottle. When he started getting close and hitting the post the jsb pellets went in the post about .5in. You could hear the pellet smack the post from back at the gun and it did seem to take forever to hear it. I am embarrassed to say this but it took me about 30 shots to hit it but once I found my hold over I was able to hit it twice in 6 shots. My scope is a 8.5x25x50 and we pretty much had to keep the scope on 10x just to be able to shoot at that distance. Now I need to order a bkl adjustable scope mount because I am hooked on longer range shooting. Hopefully the weather is good this weekend when I go back down so we can setup a couple cameras, possibly 3 cameras for the best proof. Sorry for the long post and delay from the getting on this forum but just been kinda busy. Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.July 26, 2016 at 1:56 am #256763wll2506Participantquote Buster7467:
Buster, it has been fun reading your post on this thread !
I myself am shooting a 25 cal Condor and shooting three pellets …. JSB King Heavies 34gr, EJ Heavies 43gr, and Nielsen’s 39gr slugs, I have my PW set at 5/1 for the JSB’s and they are coming out at 975fps, my EJH’s are coming out about 945fps with the PW at 6/1 as are my slugs at the same PW setting. The only modification is the “O” ring under the Top Hat and the unscrewing of the length of the Top Hat by about .040-.050 to make up for the diameter of the # 009 “O” ring.
I, like you have an R&L shroud, and I love it , IMHO a must have item … it is very clean looking, is rock solid and performs very well. I have a Condor using a Mad Dog stock and that is my Bench Varmint gun, great design on that stock for sure, my other Condors all have Talon Tunes WokGuard15 MK2 (I feel this is also a must have unit).
All my Condors are pure factory on the inside, IMHO, if you understand how they work you can really set them up to be very powerful, yet have a bell curve to get a reasonable amount of shots in a hunting situation.
Buster, keep your post going, I like seeing your progress ;- )
