    So I noticed today that my daystate huntsman regal shoots quite a bit better when using the single shot tray then when using the magazine.  Inside of 40 yards it doesn’t really matter to much, but the difference is significant when shooting further then 40.    
    anyone else have this experience (or not?)? What gun are you using etc?

    It will shoot sub 1/2 inch groups at 50 yards with the tray, with a magazine im lucky to keep it under an inch .

    I have the same results, magazines great for hunting, follow up shots.  The trays on all my guns tend to be more accurate, or at least consistent groupings when single shot tray(s) SST are used.  From what I have found in many of the forums, many people have reported the same results.  Seems to be a pretty consistent trend.

Might try contacting a guy on ebay by the name of “evensteven101”.  He has offered his services to make SST for any gun, or he may already have the modeling data to make one for your gun. I contacted him thru ebay by sending him an email as a question on one of the others that he had advertised and a couple days later he sent me what I needed.  Best 12 to 15bucks I spent for a tray.  I wrote a review on the same subject so check that out as well.

    I totally agree, “evensteven101” on eBay is the real deal. I am currently working with him to get one of his SST’s developed to fit my FX Bobcat .30 MK2. He already had them for the .22 and .25 cal. Bobcat plus the Royale and Streamline. The .30 cal. needed dimensional changes, so I did some measurements for him and he sent me what he thought would work, for $1. It needed a few minor tweaks, so I sent him some detailed photos and additional measurements, and he made another and its in the mail to me now. So I’ll send him the $12 once I get it and it fits just right. I’m sure he’d work with you also to develop SST for air guns he doesn’t already have on file.

    If you’re feeling handy, go to Staples and get a large pencil eraser. It’s the perfect medium to carve your own tray- I’ve made some for two Vulcans, a Verminator and an  impact..The dollar store had some huge erasers, so I now have my ss trays color coded for the intended rifle.

    Personally, I haven’t seen enough difference between the tray & magazine in my Kral Puncher Breaker to justify the inconvenience of the tray. However, my typical shooting distance is around 20-25 yards shooting rats, and the magazine is a big plus. I have seen an improvement in accuracy (using a tray) with my Kalibr Cricket though. My Kral came with a tray and two magazines! It’s a great bullpup for the money.
