    a little practice also.

    Got the Sig ASP20 out today for chrony tests. Have been playing with my FWB 124, whish I love, but when I shot the Sig ASP20 .22, I had forgot how light I had adjusted the trigger to. So I fired 5 shots before the test. Results were pleasing. Have it sighted at 50 but wanted to see how much high I would be at 25, since I have a Martin house at that distance and the Starlings are due any time. It was 1.2 high and the 5 shots were good also. They measured .48 outside to outside. It looked like to me the ctc was about .3 but the outside was easier for me to be sure. Going to leave the setting as is and just use the mil marks for 25 yd. The .48 outside marking was measurement not temp.

    Wow ! Incredible results. Have you weighed your pellets for weight accuracy?  My gun would be lucky to even hit 800fps with a 16 gr pellet.

    Most are a little less than 16. A few, maybe 50, at or above. Most were between 15.86 and 15.95. and some less than that.

    I love Sig products and the 33 pound cocking on this gun is nice.

    And for its price it is a very nice air rifle. I paid $1K for a Theoben Eliminator and $550 for a Beeman RX1. The ASP20 is a great bang for the buck.

    Like I said,  your Sig is on steroids. I'm only getting 830fps with a 14.8gr pellet. My gun is only getting 22.5 -22.8 ft/lbs. Nothing to snicker at but nowhere near 24+ ft/lbs.

    As we said when I was a kid– makes no nevermind- as long as you have accuracy. That is what I look for more than anything. I only check velocity to check on gun condition and to use for holdover/under. It's all fun and games.

    Did a 3 shot trigger pull test and the high was 1.14lbs and the other 2  were  1.11lbs.  The first stage looks to be about 1.10 which makes the second stage plenty light. and no creep as far as these old fingers can feel. So the 3lb, as reported by some,  to me is a myth or maybe a REAL old man's tale.

    How much trigger adjustment have you done ? My first stage had a lot of creep. Adjusted it down to nearly nothing. I did some adjustments on the second stage but don't think I am anywhere near 2lbs.

    I was just lucky I guess. I made about 4 adjustments for the second stage and was satisfied. Got the first stage where I liked it and then did the second stage. Will see what the next batch of AA's will do. May try some 18gr just for the heck of it.

    I had 6 "odd ball" AA pellets that were 18.3 & 18.4. So I ran them across the chrony. Will try accuracy later because that is what I shoot for. The avg was 783 and energy shows 25.1 lbs. May not have the accuracy that I like  but- will see. The new batch of AA 16 gr. seem to be ok. Did a 10 shot group @ 50 yds that measured .90, which is not that good but the first 4 shots took the target dot away so did the best I could. Actually had 7 of the 10 in about 1/2".  Happy but not satisfied. Just mainly wanted to see about the 18 gr's. Now to plant some tomato's or is it tomatoe's? And the new batch of 16's chrony was 815.

    I missed this post. I think the 18's are a little heavy for our guns. By the way,  I decided to go ahead and send my Sig back to Sig. Very happy with the gun. Just was never satisfied with mid 22 ft/lbs when many ASP20 owners like yourself are seeing 23-24 ft/lbs. They will have my rifle on the 10th.

    The difference in velocities could be caused by several things not related to the gun.  Your elevation, barometric pressure and temperature are three things that come to mind.  Plus I'm sure whatever small game you shoot will not be able to tell the difference if one pellet was going a little faster than another pellet.

    I'm at 85 ft above sea level. Probably near the same as Tom Gaylord when he did his chrony testing of the .22 Sig ASP20. He averaged 1060fps with the Sig Crux pellet. I'm getting 1020fps. Even Travis at Airgun Depot chrony numbers seemed better than mine. Or at least the same. His testing was done at approximately 4500 ft above sea level. I know the squirrel or crow won't know the difference. But I do !

    According to Google Earth, I am @ 416 above sea level. How much difference that makes is beyond my thinking power. I leave all the tech stuff to you young guys. I can think of all my excuses easily on my on.

    I've noticed in the past about 10fps loss per 1000ft of elevation.

    Thanks for posting your results. I'm seriously considering getting this gun! Did you get the synthetic or beech stock?

    Beech. not sure if the synthetic is available yet. PA is still showing not yet.

    I wanted the synthetic stock but wasn't willing to wait. Some say the synthetic is out but supplies are limited. Others say they aren't out yet. I got the beech wood and am happy with it. Compared to the price of the HW guns the Sig is a good bang for the buck.
