Reply To: My trusty cricket just let me down
I had a very similar problem with my .22 cricket. It was an absolute laser for the first two tins after I got it, but all of a sudden for no reason it starts to wander all over the olace !! What in the world??? After much painful searching and many agonizing sessions of trying different pellets and scrubbing the barrel and Chrono-graphing, my brother-in-law who is a gun smith but not a pcp expert discovered two of my scope ring screws had slowly worked loose!!
He torqued them down with a special scope mounting torque screw driver and my trusty cricket has been blazing away at sub-half inch at fifty ever since. (Except if its windy of course 🙂 )
This was 7000 some rounds ago with not a single problem ever since.
