    Friends,

    Here is some chronograph work with the Brocock Bantam HiLite.
    _
    Pellet (unsorted, unwashed, not lubricated):  Air Arms Diabolo Field .22 Cal, 5.51mm, 16 Grains, Domed
    Power Setting:  Low
    Usable Shots (1-50) average FPS:  774
    Usable Shots (1-50) standard deviation:  4
    Fill:  240 BAR
    _

    Line chart:

    Summary Data:

    Target is at 8.5 yards.  Don’t judge the gun/platform by my nonchalant rapid fire chronograph strings and short range (it’s all I have).  Each hole that your see is 10 shots.

    Observations
    This is a really fantastic and quiet air rifle (of note, using Donny FL Sumo).  It will be my “trash birds at the feeder” airgun once we get to our next house.  The trigger is a bit heavy for an airgun but I don’t have a precise measurement of its weight.
    _

    Many folks have had problems with this platform.  In fact, I myself had to send the gun in for warranty work.  However, if you get a good one it’s a great set up.  Simply due to the trigger, I think after a couple of years I’ll sell it and get a Taipan Mutant Short in .22 but that’s a discussion for another day.
    _

    I’ll do some testing / shot string analysis on the high setting soon but primarily this gun is for lower power, quiet, pest bird elimination such that the good birds aren’t disrupted by the noise.

    Hopefully this information is helpful to those considering this specific platform.

    Great info.  Thanks!

    I have the Bantam Hilite Soft Touch in .25 cal.  Love the light, quick handling design.  Its very quiet with the Huggett moderator, beautiful fit and finish, accurate, good power, 10 shot magazines are well designed. The gun is perfect for hunting.  I like everything about the Bantam except the shot-count (26). The new Huma regulated model coming out this March will probably blow it away in shot count and higher ft/lbs.  Thinking seriously about getting one.

    I have a Bantam in .22 and initially had problems, but the issues seem to be resolved for now. I love the weight, size and balance of the gun, it’s just feels right to carry and shoulder. Now that it’s shooting correctly, it’s damned accurate too.

    “BigTinBoat”What was the ending pressure?

    
BigTinBoat,

    I have a Joe Brancato tank with a large gauge which reads 10 BAR higher than the gauge on the Bantam.  I assess the tank gauge to be correct as noted below:

    Also, I figured out how to add data points to the graph for better readability.
