“Bobbed06”What qualifies for “non” magnum? Both my Nitro pistons are Gen 1 versions


Does it shoot an 8.4 gr. pellet @ < 1000 fps? Ideal is around 900, I think. 

Is it is it easy to shoot accurately and is it easy to cock? To me, that’s aha non-magnum means. 

 


My 177 is around 900 FPS with a 10.5 Gr, its a bear to cock, and my 22 is around 675 FPS with a 14.3Gr and its not bad to cock due to the length of the barrell. I find them both accurate with the correct pellets but the craptastic Centerpoint scopes are gonna get replaced in short order.
