    I took my recently bought Taipan Mutant short for a field day,and boy it delivered !
    My shorty has a 3 position wheel power adjuster ,and I’ve been using it in level 2 almost all the time with jsb 15.9 gr,for a nice 700 fps (19 FPE) .
    It smoked these 2 squirrels .
    The first one was at 68 yards,and the second at 70 ,almost in the same spot .
    I found a hole in the ground,and placed the first one half way inside,making him look like it was coming out .
    Then ,I’ve got another one at 48 yard,but I didn’t retrieve it,because I had to cross some wire fence ,and didn’t want to look suspicious .
    Love this thing !
    It was a great day to spend outside today .

    Awesome Rami, those GS are huge! I see the Prod bullpup took the back seat, I won’t blame you, the Mutant is one of the best airguns out there right now, can’t wait to see new ones hitting the market, I hope they have the same overall quality/reliability.

    Mutant, Power wheel adjuster?
    You got me confused,
    Or has Earnest had this gun in his hands and did some magic to it?
    I am all ears and I really want to know.

    Sorry for the late response, but, I’m working right now .

    Renval,
    yes, they’re big boys , and , my prod bullpup is coming back today, Monday, from the person that did the power tune up .
    And , is coming back  “screaming” .
    40 shots between 700 and 730 fps , and , it will be easy to set the velocity from 400 to 800 fps .
    It’s going to give the mutant a run for his money , I think .We’ll see .

    Mike,
    yes, my mutant has a 3 positions power wheel adjuster .
    The wheel doesn’t increase the preload on the hammer spring, but , changes the TP output for what I was told .
    This mutant is not a one trick Pony .
    The power adjuster works fantastic !
    According to the person that sold it to me, it was one of Ernesto Rowe guns, and he bought it from him, used it for a year, then decided to sell it to fund something else .
    Sound familiar ?
    The power goes like 10/20/30 FPE , give or take .
    It depends on the pellets weight that is being used, but , the JSB 15.9 are the ones that produces those numbers .
    In my personal opinion, all the guns that cost over 1K, should come with something like this ,and some sort of hammer debounce device .
    It also has a Smooth Twist barrel, and a moderator made by ER.

    Sounds like an awesome, tuned gun.

    Just curious, why not use the 30 FPE setting? I know I would, if shooting beyond 20 yards…

    Smaug,
    basically, the point of impact changes as the velocity increase or decrease .
    I have my range card now for level 2 .
