    You might have a point there.  All I need now is a 12mm hex bit for my torque wrench.

    E-bikes are a great companion to airgunning. You can get in to some beautiful backcountry and have the E-assistance to help you lug your gear up the trail and you get a killer work out and enjoy shooting at the same time. Mountain 🏔 biking 🚵‍♀️ is my 1st favorite hobby with Airguns in 2nd place and I’m sure everyone can tell by my user name/YouTube channel name “SLCRCflyer” (Salt Lake City RC flyer) that RC airplanes ✈️ and helicopters 🚁 are in 3rd place.

    this was today 

     

    I love e-bikes and biking and airguns definitely go together but need to make some new battery packs for mine.  My 100lb adult daughter took my DIY build out and did 53MPH down the street with it.  It only goes 40 for me cuz I am near twice her weight.  BMC 600 geared motor, 60-72 volts, 12gauge spokes and heavy wheels, eight inch brake rotors and I converted the front derailleur control to a three speed throttle.  It will do near 20 miles at 20MPH and I had two extra packs and a small portable charger so I could go anywhere.  Those were the days.  Back when I lost the ability to be able to drive safely for a few years I rode this.

    A question to the owners – what is your mounts/rings height on R5M matadors?

    I’m using medium height rings. The overall scope height is 2.7 inches which includes the height of the picatinny rail.

    I have a LaRue Tactical scope mount on mine and it's 1.5" above the picatinny rail to the center of the scope ring.  I have an SWFA 3-15×42 and I actually want it lower like 1.12" or 1.2" which I know would clear with my 42mm objective.

    I was aiming for ~30mm (1,2 in) but I wasn’t sure. Thank you guys.

    NIGHTFORCE ULTRALITE UNI-MOUNT 1.125 HGT 20 M.O.A 30MM A190. I mounted a Nightforce NX8 2.5-20. It is a 50mm objective optic.

    The torque is probably set in Russia when the temperature is freezing or below. Because the thermal coefficient of expansion of aluminum is much greater than steel when it gets to warmer climates the tension increases.

    Is this true? Are these rifles assembled outside?

    I don't believe they're assembled outside but from some of the Ed's videos it seems like it's not too warm in the office and definitely cold at the shooting range there.

    I saw Ed video, when he put force to screw the tension nut

    I think because of his muscles the force is much more than 10-12 ftlb

    As every other gun i own i do experiments with in a lot parts, like reg, barrel, mags, trigger
