    Few years back shooting 1 moa consistent was the Challenge, today we can see that often, and sometimes 1/2moa

    To push for 1/2 moa airguns / projectiles is another way to take the "today target luck" , IMO and my take is pushing for that might be better for the whole industry than change the target size

    @sendler2112 excellent point too!

    I think the point of @thomasair is valid, is simple stat

    If the X / 10 point in 100y is 1/2 inch , and the airgun shoots 1 inch @ 100 consistent then shooting the X is luck sometimes (but is not all about luck), that changes if your airgun shoots 1/2 moa consistent.

    I guess I’m the fool for suggesting to improve a fun shoot by removing as much luck as possible.  Takes the “fun” right out of it, apparently.

    Not at all, precision sports needs to take the luck out of it for sure (as much as possible) IMO too. The question is how… it needs to be commercial and fun too

    Luck or Skill?, both in different %

    IMO when you shoot for see consistency in steady wind conditions of your rifle, is just the gun. Better if the gun is on a vice or something like that.

    Add now targets @ 100 Outdoors (or any distance for what matters), and now is not the gun (you got it already and is consistent) is about the skill of the shooter to read the wind, and conditions, but no matter how skilled you are, a gust in the wrong moment can take all south. (so luck plays in that area sometimes)

    BTW: 1 MOA @ 100y with 25 shots INDOORS is way possible today (IMO), outdoors different story wind plays too much with pellets … but what about slugs? dang! those are forbidden on BR events! :( Hope that change.

    Or maybe in 25y the rings are too big! jajaja today (last years) I see a lot 250 scores…on 25y that is the gun or the shooter? ;) to be or not to be … The question (if I understand correct) is why winners always change in 100y, and probably in 25 and 50 benchrest event do not? I think that is what Mike (Thomas) is referring to with the size of the target 100y ring? (make sense to me) luck plays here (but is for sure not the only player), might be the rings or…

    Precision sports are about consistency. Take PGA golf for example (a precision sport) almost all pga players has the swing for the clubs (Airgun sub moa) , they play 4 days, one day in the morning, other in the afternoon, so on… point is to take "luck" out of the equation as much as possible, the winners usually are the ones that can read the wind, read the greens, and make the best decisions on the field. Long Distance airgun shooting may learn from there, at the end is a precision sport, same as golf.

    my 2 cents

    My favorite cals are .22 and .30, if I have to choose only 1, then will be .22 why? simple because is the caliber that has more options in the market. You can go pellets from 11.75 gn (Gto), up to 33.9 (Beast) and slugs from 17.5 (NSA) up to 40gn (Varminknockers).  With a lot in between that you can test and choose.

    Pellets are good up to 100y (of course can be longer but they lose speed fast). The 18.2gn JSB Jumbo Heavy are great and I had have feathers with that up to 150y (love those little suckers)

    Slugs are good up to 400 or even 500 yards ! I have shoot 30gn slugs up to 500y with accuracy, is just amazing and just for testing, real hunting / pesting for me is up to 200y (of course over that is possible for sure, but got old eyes! jaaja), but usually I am in the 50-150y range. No feather will stay up with a donno 25+gn anything.

    .25 never convince me much on the airguns I have but need to test more

    Great Explain Bob!

    @928487381 low Voltage Warning?, is low pressure warning

    mmmm don't think so, if my understanding is correct (never been schooled for the programmer, DIY kind of guy jaja) is the max mid and low info the solenoid needs in order to compensate how long and fast gets open (I might be wrong) and the low gives the low pressure warning when that pressure is achieved.

    Yes, I remember going through this once with car modifications. Basically, as I remember, if you have an express, written warranty, the installation of after-market parts will not void the maker's responsibilities under the warranty. The exception, as stated by FX is, if the after-market part, or modification, caused the failure of something else. For example, if a combination of a different spring and high pressure regulator created pressure beyond the design limitation of the valve, then repair or replacement of the valve could be legitimately denied. 

    ☝️ that!

    IMO Does not matter the brand of the airgun, if you modify off specs any airgun internally and fails, then is not the companies fault (FX in this case), is yours, ergo no warranty should be applied (but is JMO)

    Bleed it every 10m while running

    No harm is you stop the compressor with pressure , the autostop version do that.

    Basically you need a selenoid valve that can hold 4500psi and make the adapters for the threading

    Hi Edosan . Can you give us your advice which type of thread we should choose for the impact ? 

    1/8 bsp

    Which is a parallel thread & is the same as G1/8-28.

    Is that correct, edosan?

    Ed

    Not an expert in thread nomenclature (while it looks g1/8-28 seems ok, but not 100% sure about the 28 tpi) but I know 1/8 bspp works fine, edgun edmu use that thread and is 100% fit for impacts (got several edmu working today)

    Both are great guns, only one comment

    the LCS SK19 is a full auto gun, full auto gun with match grade trigger usually is not a good idea. At first I was kind of disappointed of the trigger too but after a research I found the trigger is ok for a full auto, after a few rounds, I get use to it. And with patience, when you dial in the accuracy, is really good. It is a benchrest accurate airgun?, no is not (for that IMO it should be 1/2 MOA @ 100y), but it is a MOA+ @ 100y in semi auto mode. (and less than 2 moa for sure) once you get it right. For hunting is great. And once you get use to Semi Auto, is hard to go back to cocking levers, and is especially useful for hunting.

    How much ft/lbs can you have with .25 lcs sk19.

    J want to shoot cast bullet 3.8g with 310m/s. Can i do this with sk-19. Its will be obout 90-100ft/lbs

    100 fpe easy

    Reg pressure up to?? And what shoot count??

    I see on your instagram that you have sk-19. How shoot long range and what max fpe you get testing??

    Did you change bootle to biger. Did the 580cc from fx fit ?

    I have the .22 not the .25, I never took shot count into considerations since will depend on the bottle u use and I usually use the 580cc, and will depend on the settings you want, but usually as higher the reg the lower the shot count. For hunting, 200y NO PROBLEM with the right ammo

    I have a few post on the LCS here, just search it in my profile, that might help.

    Last testing with moa+ accuracy @ 100y was 33gn slugs NSA @ 1000 fps, reg @ 145b +- (that is more than 70fpe in .22)
