    The Simple version does not have the cyclone water/oil separator that the other three versions have so it is pumping a considerable amount of water and oil out into your filters, guns and tanks.  I expect you have already noticed. In the end it is less expensive to purchase the Hardcopy or Set pressure units with the water/oil separator as you will not be constantly replacing your filters.  I left out the Autostop version as it auto stops at around 3000psi so not useful to many of us.

    It's good that that it is still werqing for you though and that you have made your own filter that can be dried out and used again that keeps the cost down for sure..

    Keep on modding and shooting and don't forget when you replace your compressor go one step up in cost to have allot better unit.

    Oh, and by the way that was a very very long post!  I ate breakfast just before I started and by the time I was done I realized I had missed my lunch.  ;^).

    I would agree with these guys always believe the one that reads the highest and mark it until you know different.  One of the gauges on my Impact was 40 bar off so I got two new Huma gauges one of the new ones was twenty bar off.  So, I used the good Huma and the good FX gauge to get as close as I could to the tank pressure gauge which at the time agreed with my compressor gauge. 

    An extra 40 bar or 580psi in some guns could cause valve lock.  Hopefully that is as far as it would go.

    Can't help you with the Walther but I found these several years back and they brought back my ability to focus on the open sights but still see the target clearly.  I am old now but can see as good as when I was in my twenties when I use the adjustable diopter.  Says discontinued expect there is something similar out there.

    That is a nice piece and required where I shoot.  The tiny flag I cut off and modified sort of werqs but that would be much better for sure. The branding on the flag is a bit much, it should say "Locked and Unloaded" on both sides.  I thought the price was a bit much also but they went the extra mile it is machined and anodized aluminum so not so much.  A nice plastic one for half the cost would be appreciated by many.  If they want branding, in my opinion, it should be on the nicely machined block where it belongs.  If the flag is changed, or an extra unbranded unit included, I will buy one.  Thanks for the post.

    All impacts are the same. The only difference is the bottle and the barrel. 

    All the same except for the trigger frame, regulator, valve housing, valve seat, hammer spring, plenum and several other parts that have been updated over time.  FX is constantly upgrading their guns it's hard to keep up with all the changes sometimes.

    Exactly why the impact is the most failure prone because they can't leave well enough alone! But yeah most impacts are the same

    That's cuz we have some sort of addiction me thinks. ;^)  Nothing wrong with that.  Yup most of the new ones, MK2s with the new plenum anyway, are the same.

    Great that you got your gun and are pleased with it.   Good that you are able to pump as well.  I started out with a hand pump myself but with a pair of screwed up arms, injured at werq, the pumping quickly took it's toll so I got a Yong Heng and all was good after that.  Do some werq on the net to find a pellet that shoots well in the Stormrider you may be pleasantly surprised at the accuracy the gun can have with the right pellet.

    If your barrel is steel they should not hurt it.  If it is brass I would not shoot to many alloys through it although the plastic sabot stuff should be fine from either barrel.

    Tanks are great for when one needs to be mobile.  No need to be mobile no need for a tank it's that simple. Although it is nice to tether to a tank when shooting for long sessions.  The empty lots next to my house and across the street are now a house and a 58plex now so I need to go somewhere else to shoot.   I need a tank, these days, as it is much more convenient that hauling my compressor around.

    Great shooting most people are shooting rifles at that range.  Me I love the pistols too.  My eyes are not what they used to be but if I get my diopter out I find I can still shoot the pistols with open sights quite well.  Thanks for the post.

    I have been doing this for decades so have allot of pellets to choose from.  So I just shoot a few to find out what werqs best then I get on the internet an see what everybody else is using and try some of those. If I have not found anything worth shooting yet I go to my samplers from straight shooter, JSB and others.  I usually don't have to try too many pellets before I find something that shoots well.  But finding something that shoots excellent can be more taxing.

    A fairly common problem with the Pard and many other scopes as well.  Sounds like you need to shim the unit to get closer to zero before you start the zero sequence on the scope.  Here are some shims someone made for that specific unit.  Or you can make your own.  Scroll down for instruction on installing them.

    Or you can do something like this for near $100 but it will raise your scope up from the rail about half an inch.

    From the pitcures I have seen without the sight there are two holes in the breech so it looks like your assumption is correct.

    That refurb Diana looks good.  It seems to be in the ballpark with the Beeman in terms of performance.  Unfortunately, I just hit a snag.  Apparently the wife and I have wildly different ideas about what a "suitable" pellet rifle would be, primarily in terms of cost.  She doesn't understand why a $49 BB gun won't suit our needs.  Sigh.  I was intentionally keeping things at or below the $200 price specifically because I knew she wouldn't go for a $500+ gun.  She thinks a pellet rifle is a toy I guess.  Well, time to edumacate SWMBO….

    Maybe you can talk to her and educate her on the fact that there are airguns that are toys that lack teh power and accuracy needed and there are airguns that are tools which would werq.  Show her the upper and mid priced guns as well.  Good luck in you quest.

    Pyramyd air has a Stormrider open box for $169.  That and a Chinese hand pump would take care of things quite well.  It is only slightly more powerful than many of the springers and you could easily choke off the transfer port a bit or change out the hammer spring to get less power.  I would suggest a smallish inline filter at a later date to keep the moisture out of your gun.

    Review for the Stormrider

    https://hardairmagazine.com/reviews/diana-stormrider-gen-2-air-rifle-review-22-caliber/

    Most springers require a good amount of strength to operate.  Other than that and that they have a harsh recoil that kills scopes there is nothing wrong with a decent one which you will have trouble finding at your price point. If you could manage a little more money you would have allot better luck on your choices and quality of guns.

    I did manage to find some RWS 34 break barrels at near $250.  Scroll down

    Nothing wrong with a few guns if you have the funds.  Just wait until the addiction kicks in like with TMH then you can be assured that you don't have enough room so need a bigger house to store your guns in and more property for a shooting range.  It's really not a problem though so long as your not overly concerned.  Cuz bigger houses with shooting ranges are just plain awesome. ;^)
