    I bought a similar model that clamps on the gun's barrel and it works good.

    There is a lot of information on these on the GTA forum at the Bargain Gate.

    Mine came today .It works just like the video. I charged it up which only took about 1/2 hour. Fired a half dozen shots from a .crappy old .177 CO2 pistol. Speeds measured 402 – 426 fps. Simple and easy. If it stands up for a while it will be a heck of a value

    Mine is reading about 10 m/s lower than my other chronograph when I fire pellets through both simulaneously.  The pellet is going through the small chinese one first so the difference isn't because the pellet is slowing down.

    At least it seems consistent.

    Just checked my little Chinese Midget against my Caldwell G2 and the Chinese chrony is running about 2.5 mps or 8 fps faster than my Caldwell!

    Close enough for me? Gotta be quick with reading the Midget, cause it only shows the meters for a few seconds. I learned quick I had to write down the midget numbers before the G2 numbers or the numbers on the Midget would be gone back to zero in the short time it took me to write the numbers for the G2.

    I'm still Loving mine …As a matter of fact I didn't realize till today . I've only charged it the initial time . Still running on that charge …But to be fair I dont leave it on for long stretches. The easy setup and how fast it is to just step inside and get a reading then back to shooting in just a min kicks ass for me !

    hey , yall , i'm noticing much slower reads when i shoot with the muzzle about one inch from the plane or first sensor…..when i scoot the muzzle back to around 8" my soft-tuned .177 gamo shadow 1000 goes from 152 m/s up to 262 m/s……   have you guys found an optimal distance away from the midget box to get your most accurate readings ?    i know 6" up and 6" out usually does best with my (outdoor only) green f1 chrony , and about 12" back for co2 guns because the gas cloud throws it off……………but how far back have you found to be most accurate of speed testing non- co2 guns ?   …….( i can REALLY see my little china box getting shot now 🙁  )……….  and have yall found if any lighting from outside the little cube effects the readings ?

    If you are concerned with shooting the chronograph I would think it is small enough you could protect it with a inexpensive piece of polycarbonate:

    Thanks Joe for telling us about the chrono.  Got mine two days ago and already shot 6 different guns through it.  It works well.

    Been playing with mine for a few days now and I discovered it will record up to a 40 shot string just tap the red button when you're done shooting it'll show you each shot
