    Just received my Compatto in 22 cal.  I also purchased the optional Huggett to go with it. With the Huggett on, it measures 37.5 inches long. I’ve only put fifty pellets through her at this point but, it’s looking to be a shooter! Nickel size ten shot groups at thirty yards already!  More to follow this weekend when the chronograph session is going to occur.

    Its a nice looking rifle. Looking forward to fps, fpe and accuracy testing results. Also if you can weigh your rifle to compare to what the factory states as its weight. Bill

    Is it wrong to be a hater of shooters that are warm in the winter and have a yard full of oranges under the tree? (or is that nerf targets?) ;) I really look forward to the report on your new Compatto!

    That is a good looking carbine! I have been watching these closely. Would be interested in your take on the ergonomics and handling. Looking forward to you review. Enjoy!

    Spdrcer,
    Thanks for posting, That is a good looking rig.  Please let us know how it shoots, especially at the 50 yd. range or further, if you have the distance to test.  I think there’s a lot of interested people out here, I being one for sure.

    I made a new post with the chronograph results but, I’ll add it here as well. In loving this rifle more every time I pick it up. 

    So, I was able to chronograph the Compatto today on high, medium, and low power settings.  Now, the high power string is what i was expecting.  it’s giving me the 30 shots  as advertised and I am very confident that it would be 30 FPE with 18.1 gr pellets.  Also, the accuracy is fantastic.  Five shot groups the size of a dime at thirty yards and I don’t even have 200 pellets through her.  Now, what I was not expecting was the low and medium power strings.  As you’ll see, the medium setting is actually shooting harder then the high power setting.  You’ll also see that there was no increase in shot count on the lower power settings.  I found this to be extremely odd.  I’ll plan on talking to AoA about it and see what they say.  I do plan on having this rifle regulated so, it’s more of a curiosity at this point.  Not so much a concern.   I really LIKE the way this rifle shoulders, handles, shoots, looks, everything.  I’m very happy with my purchase.  Anyway, on with the numbers.  I used the FX branded JSB 16 gr pellets for all the testing.  Same tin even.

    Graphs are as follows: High, Medium, and Low.

    SPDRCER,
    Any idea where a copy of the spread sheet you are using, can be found.
    I tried the website suggested, in red ink, that’s on the spreadsheet itself, but it’s not working.
    thanks

    Thanks for posting a review.
    The power adjuster is A) transfer port strangle ? B) Has different ports/clicks like the airwolf?  C0 other?
    Is there also a hammer tension adjustment?  If so can you back that off a bit?  Would be interesting to see if that string would really flatten out if backed down just a touch.

    Keep us posted.

I’m leaning toward option A at this point. I haven’t had it apart. It does have a hammer tension adjustment. I’m not messing with it. Nick at Ait Superiority Products just got his too. He is going to start tearing into it. Adding a HuMa reg and so on.
