Tried…but the wind got me.

Wanted to, but the wind wouldn’t let me….even at the reduced speed of co2 (600fps) the 5mm SS wants to shoot, but today wasn’t the day to show it. Need to add a few clicks left windage to keep from gut-shooting, and have to outguess the variable winds a bit better, but this is my best effort of the day.

Shooting from a field rest (in this case, a towel draped over the back of a folding lawn chair), but think (with the scope adjusted better) the little gun on CO2 has the ability. On better days (of course, no camera) have punched 1/2 to 2/3″ groups at 50 yards, but today those two wind-driven shots got the better of me.
May as well add my Rredneck trigger stop. Hate overtravel (backlash). Can live with heavier weight and even a little creep, but if the trigger goes slamming back after the sear trips, I’m screwed for accuracy.

Thought I’d test this before getting out the drill/tap and doing anything non-reversable. Just a glued on flat piece of plastic…carefully placed…and a flied ledge in the plastic trigger. A little fiddling and filing, and the trigger has that nice “dead” feel after the sear trips.

Now that I know it works, will make it a little nicer/cleaner, but think I’m going to put the drills/taps away.

Too windy here for any shooting this week.

I seem to be lucky as my SS isn’t hold sensitive in the least.


Only way i can get this one to group well is to (1) have the buttt stock snug to my shoulder (2) hold the fore end firmly and (3) LIGHTLY rest my hand around the grip while gently squeezeing the trigger straight back. Vary from that, and it will toss one.

I’ve put off shooting cuz of the wind
Maybe I should switch to .20cal ? looks like the same weight as .22

Live close to me ? I’d let you try mine with screws in the frame trigger mod.
Had lazy mod for a month, didn’t like the trigger blade angle.
