    Got the FX Pocket Chrony and am pretty excited to be able to easily set it up and tune my rifles etc.. 

    However I can't get my Gladius .25 to register ANYTHING.. I used multiple setting UK / FAC etc. and notta. 

    Works great with my Streamline, Marauder and Kral PCPs.   

    Any ideas??  

    Any help appreicated.. 

    Thanks

    Have you tried with one of the guns it worked on after the Gladius? Just wondering if maybe the batteries are too weak?

    Nope been trying since last night.. Gladius just ain't registering..I'll take 3 shots get 0 FPS reading swap to Kral get  830 FPS then Marauder 730 FPS..  I believe that 7 inches of this shroud is baffles and with the air tube I got about 4 inches of  of shroud to put over the Chrony..  Curious it if would register but worry about the BARK…  I have moderators on the other 3 rifles and like I said they report with no issue..

    Just got one in this morning and the first few shots didn't register because it was slightly pointed away from the target and since I am shooting out of a second story window, I had to bend the tripod down a little bit to get the radar to follow the pellet also. Took about 4 shots to get it lined up. Getting a ES of 8 fps with my Vulcan 2 Tactic. If anything changed between shooting the other guns and your Gladius you may very well have to reposition the radar or slide it back or forward under the muzzle. What setting do you have it set at … mine is on 20%.

    I tried mine on a Hatsan .AT-44 QE Long .177 and 13.43 gr. were at 970. Worked every time I tried it.

    I have the Lab Radar and that works on my 22 Gladius

    Mine is sensitive to position. What works best for me is 1/2” below the moderator  or barrel and 2” back from the muzzle. Too low or to far back and zero reading.

    Ditto as with mine Roverblue. I have noticed that positioning can be a bit different on my various rifles and pistols. Experiment and I am sure your will find the sweet spot for your Gladius.

    Combination of setup and power settings..
    I went to New England Airgun so I didnt have to worry about noise or back drop and sure enough it work fine about 3 to 4 in below the end of the muzzle and on Power Levels 3- 6 ..   I was messing around with it and had it set to FT LBs.   With a H&N .25 cal 19.9 gr Pellet on Lvl 6 I was getting 35FPE and by Level 3 I was at 7FPE .  I had to change setting to UK for power Lvl 3 I didnt have time but I assume levels 1 and 2 would register if it was set to Pistol or CO2 possibly.. 

    Either way the FX Chronly did its job and I now know that Lvl 1 and 2 on the Galdius .25 are useless unless you want to do some pricey plinking.. 

    Thanks for everyone's input
