    No one knows the true accuracy of the hammer! Two slugs tell you nothing! Some guns are more ammo fussy than others.

    How does yours shoot?

    The high pressure air is static (not moving) except for the split second after the hammer strikes the valve.  Do you degas the rifle after every shot?  Probably not….

    The only difference between cocked and not is the hammer spring being compressed and held by the sear.  A spring can stay compressed indefinately without damage once it has taken its initial set.  It has been proven that spring piston guns can be stored cocked without damage, why would a hammer spring be any different.

    You could go to a scope with a normal adjustable objective.  I like my Leupold 6.5-20 EFR but they are hard to find with mil dots.  Leupold will install any reticle you want but is pricey.  A left handed shooter I know actually cut a hole in his sidewheel to allow him to keep using magazines with his rifle because he didn't like single loading.

    I use a 10" LDC on mine, and it keeps is backyard friendly sound wise up until around 70 fpe.  But when shooting in yard I never shoot that high of fpe.

    I asked Neil for maximum quiet and he suggested using the 10" that he uses on .357's.

    You can just tell him you're looking for a shorter one, and he'll make you a shorter version.

    But having a neighbor who doesn't appreciate the sounds of shooting, this 10" LDC + middle tophat insert at 40fpe is absolutely silent.

     

    My point exactly.  This looks a lot like the size of a Condor SS.  I want to see you stand up and shoot this like a pistol.

    .22 will be cheaper to feed for a smallbore. You may find yourself shooting a LOT more when you don't have to go to a range. If I could only keep 2 of my current rifles it would be the Sam Yang .50 and HW97 .177.  That will cover hunting just about anything.

    Leupold claims all their scopes are air rifle rated.  They do not all focus close enough without a 50 ft adaptor though.  The scopes I have sent back were repaired not replaced.

    Can it group at 20 yards?

     

    This….a lot can happen to a slow moving pellet on the way to 50 yards.  How does it do at medium ranges first.  Groups expand exponentially not linearly like you would expect when moving out further.

    Pellets don't like to go supersonic anyway.  If it was that fast he couldn't hit anything with it, gamo accuracy is a bit of a gamble anyway.  It will probably be around 15 ft lbs. With a light enough pellet it could theoretically go that fast.

    No, the scope and barrel are not parallal lines, so the "height" depends on where you measure.  I get the scope height for chairgun  by zeroing my scope at 30 yards, then counting clicks to get my 10 yard zero.  I put whatever number into chairgun it takes to get the clicks needed at 10 yards to match up.

    Just use a fixed power scope and don't worry about it.

    I still call bullshit.  The thread on GTA has only shown us how to take it apart, he hasn't even shot it yet.  If I had been waiting 3 years to get a gun I would have been shooting it as soon as I opened the box, even If I had to use my pickups headlights to light up my range.

    The Sig is smoother than the 460 out of the box. The 460 is tunable, some may say needs to be tuned, and you can get parts for it for the rest of your life.  Sig has said they will not sell replacement parts, so once the warranty is up…..  I have had the Sig since November of 2018 and still like it.  My next springer will be the new Laminated stock  RWS 54 when they become available.

    Hw30's, and HW50's almost never show up in the classifieds.  That should be a clue, those that buy them keep them.

    The turret on the Sig scope does exactly what field target shooters have been doing for years.  It is labeled with yards in addition to clicks so you can dial for elevation after you range the target.  You can get those labels made for any scope after you work out the trajectory yourself.
