    So I spent the extra cash to buy a tin of the new .25 knockouts from Giles' new shop and have them shipped to me in Michigan because I have no patience. They are in .251 dia. and dont shoot very well in my airwolf extreme with its standard choked LW barrel. Does anyone know if they plan on offering them in different diameters? 

    Btw that gun shoots the fx slugs almost as good as it shoots the mk2 pellets at 67yds

    New KO's? the MKII JSB KO samples are amazing in the LW .25 poly barrels, I presume you mean the MKI KO?

    Sorry but what I meant to say was the fx hybrids shoot almost as good as the jsb m2 king heavies. The knockouts nowhere near as good.

    Am I misunderstanding you?  Are there two versions of the 25 Cal knockout slugs?

    Yes there are,still being tested and not for sale atm.i have got mysellf a tin of 

    22 mk2 ko slugs (yet to be tested..)

    There is a significant difference in the skirt of the both..

    My friend had some pretty good results shooting the .25 mk2 k.o out of his crown(tuned for 34grain mk2 jsb pellets)with the normal pellet a liner out tob82 yards o really bad wind and rain.looked promising. 

    Here a pic of the difference between the .22 mk1 and mk2 slugs.

    I am testing the MK2 JSB KO's in .22 and .25 and so far they are really really good . In .22 they are super accurate though my Red Wolf running 940 fps . Through the Impact I tried them and after a little tune , I was shooting them at 910 fps and they were divine to say the least . It was vile weather and really windy , both slugs grouped well even in those conditions. Once it gets better over here in the UK I am out with them again . I want to push them right out to proper distance and see how they are compared to the MK1's . So far they are doing well . 

     

    Let's see what happens .

    Thanx Rog. Cant wait to get some of those over here. My wildcat mk3 sniper in .22 loves the first gen knockouts. Wouldn't it be something if the the 2nd gen. Shot even better.

    Do you have a traditional choked LW barrel gun in .25 that you could try a few of the mkii. 25s in? I wish daystate would start offering polygon barrels to retrofit its older model guns.  Thanx tim

    Am I the only one that thinks it’s odd that JSB is releasing a .25 Knockout slug Mk2 before we even get the initial release in the USA?  Also seems they are releasing a .22 KO Mk2 when we’ve only had a very limited amount of the initial release here also…  an explanation would be appreciated.

    What do you mean by "initial release" CC? have you not got the original .25's in the USA yet then?

    I can only imagine that some video footage and some comments that there was limited expansion of the KO VS other brands has let them to rethink the expansion characteristics of the design.

    I haven't seen the .25 ko in the US. I ordered mine from Giles at airgun 101 shop.

    The .25 KOs are not in the US yet. I saw them on UAG web site but they don’t have any .22 caliber so that makes me think they’re just taking pre orders. Not sure when we’ll see them or when we’ll get more it the .217 for our .22s. I’d like to try the .25 in my Impact with both Slug A and Superior liners. And the .217 shoot lights out in my DS RW HP.

    The .25 barrel I have is the FX Superior heavy liner , They work a treat in that I tell you … Sadly I dont  have a .25 Red Wolf/ Safari ( very sadly ) but would test for you if I did buddy . The Poly barrel on the .22 Red Wolf  absolutely loved MK2's . They really really flew well and worked a treat as said.  In the UK I use Wildman , Pro Hunter and JSB and all of these work super super well with both guns .

    that is a five shot group from today at 67yds with the knockouts. Four in the bull one at 5 o'clock. I think I may have found what I was doing wrong. I shot that group with a very light touch on the gun. And my cheek barley touching the stock.

    I don't know about Mk1 and Mk2 KO in .25. Sounds like BS to me. They have been available in Europe for a few weeks now. I have had two deliveries and they are both the same. I have a 600 mm Crown with the new Superior Heavy barrel. That barrel shoots the 33.9 gr pellets and the 34 grain KO perfectly with the same tune. I am now using the original reg pressure of 135 bar and they both fly about 870 fps. I am very happy with both the slugs and the barrel.

    UAG and Pyramydair have them in stock. Basically at the time this post was created they became available. The tins I ordered should be here tomorrow. Based on what I’ve seen they are MK 1. Not sure why I even ordered them, the NSA 33.5’s are .250 rather than .251. So the JSBs will most likely shoot slower. The NSA 33.5’s shoot excellent out of my Superior liner and are cheaper (about 3 cents) per slug than KO’s. Unless the KO’s are hole in hole at 65 yards I’ll probably be sticking with the NSA’s which group 1/2 inch pretty much all day at 65 yards.

    Is there really a Mk1 and a Mk2 slug in .25? If so, how are they identified? Are the tins labeled as such? What is the source of that info?

    airgungear on instagram is my source. his second to last post has photos of both MK-I and MK-II. if you’re not on instagram I can sum up his post.

    ’First impression, bigger skirt, looks like a pellet from the rear, weights same pretty much, but the skirt is way deeper and better formed than MK-I’.

    Also forgot to mention that I got a few tins of .25 ‘MK-I’ KO’s today. Still tuning but I had groups about inch and a half at 65 yards, I also had 1/2 inch groups at 65 yards. I’m impressed with them. even with the little experience I have with them they grouped as good maybe a little better than NSA 33.5’s which are my go to for slugs at the moment.
