“Ghostmaker”Well it’s been a long slow process but I finally have this thing tweaked into my perfect hunting/pest control weapon.

It was a great gun to start with but now it’s perfect, for me at least.

Slayed a few pigeons out at the farm with it on Saturday. Here’s 3 of 12 I bagged

and today bagged 18 crows along with to many starlings to count. Heres a few from today

For those interested the gun is an S510 carbine FAC super-lite. Regulated with a Robert Lane regulator set to shoot Air Arms 16g Fields at 840fps giving me about 25 ft/lbs.
I removed the original air reservoir and put the shorter 12ft/lb carbine cylinder on. Filling to 210 Bar gives me exactly 30 shots or 3 magazines worth. ES is around 9 fps.

1/2″ groups or less at 50 and I can confidently take Starlings out to 80 yds no problem. Depending on my caffeine intake.

It’s topped with a Leupold Mark AR Mod 1 4-12×40 AO mil dot scope attached with Sportsmatch med rings.

Putting the shorter cylinder on and the Leupold really changed the handling of the gun and it has really made it a pleasure to carry and shoot. I’ve pretty much ditched the bipod and sticks in favour of just walking and stalking all the time with this thing.

Can’t believe how reliable this combo has been. Never loses zero, pressure or velocity. Just take it out of the gun bag and start shooting.

Thanks for looking and happy hunting!


We’re most of your shots head shots, or were they center chest/body shots?
