From what i know, R and L has some new valving coming out for the 257. Knifemaker Mike is testing versions now.January 29, 2015 at 9:48 am #218230oldgoatParticipantquote Tofazfou:
Cedric: I BEAT you to the Matador 257 name by way over a year!
I got an Edgun MATADOR 30 cal long and: shot around 100 JSB 30 cal 46 grain pellets thru it. As delivered, it shot the JSBs at 965 fps. I turned it down to 885 and I was very happy with the 30 cal Matador but: I bought the gun just to make a .257 cast bullet shooter out of it. Turned down to 885, it got around 38 regulated shots per 250 bar fill.
I fitted a 28 inch long, 1 in 14″ twist TJ’s .257″ barrel on it and I got it to shoot my cut down and Eric HP 62 grain 257420 cast slugs at 950 fps. I thought, and still think, that I can get around 20-25 regulated shots starting with a 250 bar fill. Ed says that the 30 cal is rated for a 250 bar fill.
I still have more on the HST and regulator: right now, I need to find somebody that will make me an air valve rod that will take over the 145 bar that I currently have my reg set at. My stock 30 cal reg was set at 140 bar when I got the gun. I would like to be able to max the HST out and turn the reg up to 150-160 bar.
I have an air valve design that I think would be bullet proof; I just need to find somebody to make it.
I bought 3 air valve rods from Ernest and they all came apart after 5-10 shots at 145 bar. Ernest told me that his air valve rods are only designed for 140 bar.
I still have a 257 Condor on order from Doug: at least every time that I have called him, he said that I am still on his to do list!
If you and Knife would just leave the poor guy alone for a while, Doug might find the time to build my gun!
