    So I cleaned the bore yesterday and shot plenty of fouling shots yesterday afternoon to clear the Ballistol and lead in the barrel.  I got a fresh can of CPHP 7.9grn from Wally to try today.  It just does not do well with them or the 10.5 Crosman mags at 25 yards (more like 23 probably).  I pushed them to the side and picked up the JSB 10.3’s.  Today instead of curling my left arm back I used not only my front Caldwell bag but the rear as well, it tightened things up.  I can get 40 shots from 1800 to 1,000 psi with the .42 spring in the rifle.  I was going to put the factory one back in and try it some more but I just decided to leave it, it does .40 to .60 inch all day at 25 yards with the JSB’s……even with the heavy trigger and 4 power centerpoint I had laying around.  It stacks polymags at 13-18 yards (my rat shooting range).  I am really really happy with this rifle.  It is quiet and with the .42 spring I get away with the 5 inch TKO to save some overall length.  

    I thought of getting another Mantis 3-9 scope for it and ordering more pellets to try but I think I am just gonna pull the brake and enjoy it how it is.  It is 6.0 pounds ready to shoot on my digital fishing scale.  I have 162 into the rifle with shipping and the hillair .42 spring.  If I wanna pull my hair out over trying for the smallest groups I will just pull out the marauders, this one is staying how it is……..utility rifle.  I would highly recommend this rifle with a promo code under 199.

    If you want to make it really quiet, DonnyFL sells an adapter for it that will allow attachment of his suppressors.  

    I have it on my 22 Maximus.  The Tatsu is only 4″ long and does a great job at silencing.  The 6″ Sumo makes it super quiet.
    If you don’t like the 1.6″ diameter of the Tatsu or Sumo, the 1.2″ diameter Tanto or KOI look really good on it.  

    Just when you think you’re done upgrading, you’re not…LOL!!!

    I put a Magnum Air Power trigger assembly in mine.  While I don’t care too much for the trigger design, it sure did clean it up the pull and break, and lightened it a bit as well.

 Awesome thanks.  Quieter is always better.

    EDIT—those LDC’s are awesome!  I’m little hesitant having those ship to my home they look so good, quality!

    Nothing against a TKO, that was the first thing I put on mine as it was so loud out of the box.  And I thought it was quiet after that.  All it really does is tame the bark.

    With an actual suppressor, there’s no comparison.

 I got it from Crosman during their 15% off Memorial day sale and used airgunnation promo code with it.  It was like 141 without shipping.  I didn’t need it but I couldn’t say no for that price.  At the time all that was in stock was .177, it worked out though.
