    Nice gun and nice guy talking about it….. I just really wish he would keep his hands still while talking. I want to watch all his videos but the flailing arms put me off.

    I wish I had bought this gun for my son rather than the gauntlet I modified and have just as much money invested in. I like this gun with the walnut stock best.

    i watched the whole video and i really like it, like all of your videos.

    but i would love to see you show:

    – how the trigger can be adjusted (you not doing it because its not shown in the manual ?)

    – open up the factory shroud and show the internals and maybe find out, why did it clipped

     

    one reason for the bad sound dampening is that the factory baffles are not caliber specific. the bore diameter in the baffles is 0,4inch – thats not necessary for .177 and .22

     

    i had this rifle for a while (black version) and i could provide you some detailed pictures of the shroud and trigger. feel free to use them in your upcoming video.

    Steve does get a bit animated, but he speaks a lot better in front of the camera than many other youtubers. 

    Ever watch one, and you hear "um" every sentence? Brutal to listen to.

    Hubertus, a lot people on this site appear to be "test-drivers" and don't want to work on their guns in fear of their warranty and later re-sale value. That's fine but it never speaks to any of these guns real potential. The level to which this gun is shipped at is fine by me because it keeps the price down and those that want to can mod it and refine it at a fraction of the cost. Steve only discusses what is, not what might be. He could not possibly take the time, with each gun, to fix everything. I see these reviews as purely an introduction and not the final word an anything and they are great for that. My shroud was mis-aligned, like Steve's, and I fixed it by shimming with a tiny piece of an aluminum soda can under the setscrew and rotating it. No biggie, anything that slides on and has a setscrew is unlikely to be perfect. I put a spring in my baffle stack and it can't rattle or go go anywhere. Like you know, the trigger is, of course, totally adjustable. I took the assembly apart and checked all bearing surfaces too, though that was probably unnecessary. I set my first stage at 6 ounces and my second stage for 20. I have never broken a  glass rod with my trigger finger so I don't know what that is like, but my trigger is pretty good. I had it set safely at a pound but changed it because it doesn't spend much time on a bench or bipod. Anyone can easily do these procedures and they really make this gun shoot. Again, most won't. One thing that is worth mentioning that I love about this gun is that you don't have to remove the action completely from the stock to remove the air tube. I just loosen the stock screws and the two pillar screws and just unscrew the tube from the front. To be fair, the first time it was tight but the way the sealing works it doesn't need to be and I don't lose air. This makes getting to the regulator pretty easy and quick. The only stupid thing on this gun is the 12×1.25 thread pitch on the barrel. Even Hatsan, in metric Turkey, uses standard unf. If SPA is selling the most airguns in the world maybe soon we will all be changing to these metric threads. I don't care either way as long as there is only one standard. Right now there isn't and it can be a major pain….

    I watch a lot of videos and imho “um “does not bother me. At least they are brave enough to do a video which to me is important if I want to know about any product etc.. maybe you should do a video so we can critique you😎

    Good Job on the Video Steve,

    I basically found the same things you did..

    I was able to just remove the baffles and keep the shroud, added one of Donny's Thread adapters and a Sumo, no more clipping issue

    I found the JSB 18.13's best, then the AA 16.0 close second, and yes it does hate some pellets.. The jsb 15.89's open way up ..

    I did add a Huma Regulator in place of the stock, Beware you WILL need to set the regulator at 120 for best results.

    Here is the latest Chronograph sheet with the huma and jsb 18.13's.

    Started at 250 bar , stopped at 150 bar, 60 shot string

    Special thanks to MountainSport Airguns for the production work. 

    And yes, Steve is much better in front of the camera then me. Nice work, Steve.

    I had to watch the video because I lived inside this gun for too many hours to count. He brought up a very good and accurate point. Whether he was going off what he read while researching or just common sense, he was right about the .25cal. With a lot of work and money, I have mine shooting how a PCP should. But it kicks. Because of the lack of dead weight because of the titanium tube, she's a little jumpy. He chose wisely, on Diana's behalf to review the .22 instead of the .25. I am still trying to figure out why in the airgun world, we pay $500-$700 for brand new guns we have to work on or gamble on getting a good one. Strange hobby.

    I like Steve's videos. They seem very similar to what I'd expect from him just talking to three or four airgun buddies sitting around the kitchen table, minus the interruptions and ribbing.

    kinda makes me want to try out one of those sub 300 SPAs. Any word on the m10 or p12 (i think thats what they are called) in quality? Just gave away my only .22 left to my buddy's son for his birthday but im not giving him 10 years worth of ammo lmao. I need a cheap 22 pcp now that i have the fever.
