    I pulled the trigger after the long drawn out process of elimination. I thank everyone for their opinions  they have given on all the other posts… I am really excited I have the 25 Mrod and am really happy with it but i wanted more!!

    I have the .22 and I absolutely love it!! It’s my first pup I went from a disco .177 to a Vulcan so I don’t have much to compare to. My .22 is insanely accurate though!! I have some Videos on the tube check it out. I just bought a .25 impact it’ll be a minute before I get it though can’t wait to be able to compare the too.

    Wow that was a big change up and the 25cal  is a real thump-er the sound is insane from 75 yards away when it annihilate its intended target.  I bought the disco 22 first and still have it. I cant wait to try the Vulcan in the thick Ohio woods!!

    Dale, i’m on the fence but ready to pull the trigger.  I just can’t decide between the Vulcan and the Tactic.  Need some input but only only person here and only two people in England have it 12FPE and no ones is shooting it yet because of there shitty weather.

    I’m at the same point…can’t decide between the bullpup and rifle.  The weight of the Tactic is really the only part that gives me reason for pause.

    I’m hoping to decide and order next week…however, now that winter has hit NE Ohio, I have a bit more time to figure it out unfortunately!!

    What scope are you all thinking?  I’m leaning towards a SWFA 16x scope.

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts once you get you new gun.

    Ive shot a .25 a few times they have a lot more Behind them that’s for sure. I had a cricket .25 for about 5 days lol. But my Vulcan though man it’s a blast I’ve killed a lot of shit with it. I could prolly fill the bed of my truck with all the different varmits I’ve killed with it no joke. I haven’t even had it a hole year yet.

    I like the length of the vulcan that was the deciding factor for me between it and the wildcat. I hope i made the right choice!! I have a hawk 4-12×50 HD Sport AO to try first. I have the UTG 4-16-44 swat accushot SF on the Mrod and I love it.

    Eohlin:  That’s what i plan on getting as well, SWFA 16x.  I was leaning towards the MTC Connect or the Hawke Airmax 30 but i wanted to give a FFP a shot and see how it works for me.  Weight isn’t an issue for me because 95% of all my shots are from a bipod, tripod, or rest.  As for timing, the weather in Cali is great right now so thats not an excuse for me, but i’m in no rush because i’ve got the Cricket .22 and a s510 that need some loving’.  Was going to try shooting 16 grain in the Cricket @ 900FPS because the best i can get with 18 grains is 876.  If the 16 get any more accuracy i may switch.  Just hate having the money and not buying now because as we all know money has a way of just disappearing if you leave it laying around for awhile.

    Frank:  you’re last 3 or 4 videos are very impressive almost made me want to change my mind back to a .22 but i have a Cricket .22 and wanted that .25 kick for hunting, but i will do more plinking than huntings.  If i can quiet it down i can plink with a .25  :-).  So much to think about.

    After debating back and forth I decided to go with the Tactical 25.  I was afraid the BP would be too short for my liking. I just sold a great shooting 25 Cricket and it was the same length as the Tactical (33″) so I know what to expect. The Vulcan will be a little over a pound heavier than the Cricket as well. Since most of my shooting is off a bench or vehicle and I don’t do much carrying the weight won’t be an issue. I’m thinking the longer version will be a little more comfortable to shoot off a bench as well. I also like the extended forearm and the hidden rail on the bottom of the stock. Hopefully I chose wisely.

    jKing:   Look forward to photos and a review once you get it, I will be ordering by the 21st I believe.  You’re review may sway my decision, but i too am leaning toward the Tactic.

    What velocity you want your shooting? the factory setting is 150 bar and it will shoot up to 940 fps. so if you want it slower and more efficient like 900-910 fps you need to make them set the regulator set at 125 -130.

    Hi Frank

    re your videos showing misuse of guns/handling.

    I assume you realise these are training videos of not what to do! Carefully  study these , eg one is a pump gun which wasn’t pumped after firing one shot, how did it discharge again etc etc.

    Safe shooting

    Just wanted to share that i did order the Vulcan Tactic in .25 cal yesterday, sadly to report i will not have it in my hands for another 2 weeks because i’m stuck overseas.   I will own an Impact one day (MKII LOL).  But for now i’m the proud owner of a Tactic .25 cal with the Peter’s 2 system silencing mod, 4 magazines, Magual carrying strap and adapter, SWFA 16x  scope and bubble level, sports match ATP66 rings, Butler creek scope caps, Atlas bipod, VISM NcSTAR Tactical 36″ caring case, Accu-Shot BT28 AFAR Picatinny Accessory Rail, shit i even order the Omega SC compressor.  Never posted a youtube video but may do a review once i get home and settled in.  Pictures will surely follow.

    Frank, I’ve seen all of you’re recent videos and nothing unsafe JUMPED out at me, I will look them over again to see what Wolfie was talking bout since he was a little vague in his criticism.  We must all remember when posting things to address safety first, and in that concern I agree with Wolfie, that when we post we are sure that we are not promoting unsafe acts.  Again, very accurate gun you got there.
