    Does anyone have a recommendation for adding a picatinny rail using the sling hole in the front of the K1? I was looking at: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01B6S8IOY but am not sure about the curve of the stock. Does anyone have a recommendation for a tripod and cradle?

    Thanks!

    I have this one for the K1 and it works flawlessly, and as it only has 2 parallel contact points with the stock, it always fits the curvature. (and the rubber piece between the stock and the rail prevent marring of the stock.)

    Has anyone else noticed the link here on AN to Huben's website is no longer functional. Been that way for a week now. Takes you to a Microsoft server page instead.

    @wyliecoyote – did you buy this in the end – I am looking at this but it is a bit expensive? did this fit ok? did you explore other options?

    I put this one on my Huben it's works well and it's a little cheeper 

    it does not come with the quick release stud you need to buy one.

    I ended up buying this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01B6S8IOY

    It works great, but you have to have a stud in the sling mounting hole. I used these studs: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CN5PG6T since I was not sure of the screw thread size. I ended up using the one with fine threads. The rail goes over the stud and a pin goes through the side of the rail and through the stud. You can then use your sling with the post on the end of the rail. 

    I am using https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BJ4UZCE to clean the barrel with my normal rifle cleaning kit. These swabs fit the barrel very nicely and it makes a big difference to clean the barrel with a light coat of oil. Make sure the Huben is empty and on safe before attempting to clean it. The safest way is to drill a hole through a piece of wood and put your cleaning rod through it, securing the handle to the wood using duct tape. Place the wood on the ground so that the rod is sticking up in the air with the cleaning tip attached. Hold the Huben and slide it over the cleaning tip gently inserting it into the barrel. Slide the Huben up and down to clean the barrel. This is the safest way to clean the Huben since the barrel is always pointed toward the wood, which is on the ground.

    I read an article in Hard Air Magazine about an LCS airgun that is semi and full auto – see link. A close examination shows that it looks a lot like the Huben K1, including the fixed magazine. They improved the loading port and many other little things. They use a carbon fiber bottle instead of the titanium, so the pressure is lower. According to the article, they are being assembled in the US. They are being sold at Airguns of Arizona, according to the article for $1999.

    I do not know about America, but MP molds does sell internationally but I understand that this might not be an option for you due to custom and tax…

    @gregor I sincerely appreciate all the time and effort you put into posting about and making videos of the Huben K1.

    I have the 6.35mm mold on order for my .25 K1 from MP molds and I can't wait to get it. It should be here in about 12 more days. 

    Gregor, I am curious about if I need to lubricate the K1. I have put about 2000 shots through it and I was thinking about how I should be cleaning the barrel and lubrication of the mechanism.

    I was thinking about bleeding off all the pressure with the top screw near the pressure gauge and adding 1 drop of RWS silicone oil (I have for my Nomad II) filling the gun back up and firing a few times. I wonder if I even need to do this because it says nothing about lubrication in the owner's manual.

    Also, can .25 cleaning pellets be used to clean the barrel?  I was thinking about pushing one down to the end of the barrel and shooting it back out…. I don't think it would be wise to try and shoot one out of the magazine. It might jam the gun. Who knows? 

    edit: I ended up just getting some .223 J. Dewey mops and a 30 inch nylon coated cleaning rod set instead of worrying about cleaning pellets.  I got the rod that was longer because I have my eye on an FX with a 700 mm barrel…

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 🍻🍻

    Lubrication is generally not needed. I would advise that if the gun is running properly not to disassemble and/or lubricate. You do need to clean the barrel occasionally.

    Regarding .25 cal: I had trouble getting good accuracy with stock barrel with .25 cal K1 (as mentioned also in the video). Similar problem than with the .22 version, standard LW barrels are quite sensitive to higher velocity with pellets and combine this with K1 shooting out of the barrel, the results are unstable pellet and also slugs from time to time. 

    This is why I replaced the barrel with LW poly uncooked. Not the gun shoot excellent with pellets  and also much better with my slugs (MP molds) but still not perfect.

    I am actually going to redesign the .25 slug (maybe also the .22) for K1 to optimize the accuracy with it, despite the fact that I got several feedback that the current slug is very accurate with their gun.

    All the older version of the molds will still be available.

    Let me know if you need my help regarding anything.

    Thanks a lot Gregor! 

    I have not tried to hit  anything over 50 yards with it yet. But my gun is pretty consistent and accurate with JSB pellets inside that short distance. That being said this is also the first high end air gun I've owned. So I am very impressed. 

    I tried shooting some H&N Grizzly and they were wildly inconsistent and would not even pierce the plastic skin on a bowling pin I shoot at..Pretty strange. 

    My mold just made it to customs in New York this morning. So it should be here any day now. 

    Have a good one!
