    I have a CED M2 and it works for everything but my air rifle. With a CEDS m2 chronograph all the stars have to align, before it will register a shot. What  chronograph do you use for air rifle?   I want a Chrono that will work indoors and out.  Which one do you use or think is the best. I don’t need a high dollar unit, just something that will work for air gun.

    I have one of these.  I have not used it inside the house due to the wife unit, refusing to allow the activity.  Bummer, but the Alpha Master Chrony from Pyramyd Air for 120.00 bucks  has served me well.

    FunGun is it supposed to work in doors, without sunlight.  My CED M2 did not.

    I use the Air chrony. Unlike the Alpha chrony you never get errors and it works in all type of light, you don’t need to buy your own lights or be outside in the Sun.

    I really can’t speak from personal experience since the wife won’t allow indoor shooting.  But Pyramyd carries lights for these so I am assuming it works indoors with the lights at least?  They cost around $52.00.  I would think you could rig something some lights for a lot less?  Maybe someone who does not have a wife or a more friendly wife than mine, might have some experience with using this chrony inside without the lights?

    I use the Competition Elethought ctronics ProChrono Digital Chronograph   , outstanding value being right at $100.00.  I did try two others way back but having seen nothing but  Competition Electronics ProChrono Digital Chronograph at FT shoots thought I’d give one a try and have been very happy with it.  You will need the lioght kit or proper lighting for indoors.

    Spysir,    I found one on Amazon for 99.23  and free shipping. I looked at several reviews and they were good. Your review has convinced me to pull the trigger.  Thanks to everyone for the help.

    I started using the Caldwell Chronograph last year. So far I like it a lot better than the Master Chrony (blue). I got it gently used. I found the Master Chrony to be a bit finicky for lining up shots to register and it also seemed to be light sensitive. 
    The Caldwell has a feature where you can plug your phone into it. The app is free, has a lot of information, and does not limit you to ten shot strings. You could shoot a 500 round string if you wanted to. The infrared lights have not let me down, either. They seem to be MUCH more reliable than other methods I’ve tried. 
    I’d recommend it.

    I’ve been using a Competition Electronics Digital Chronograph for four years now, and I can say that I’ve had no major issues with it.  It just simply works whenever I use it outside or indoors.  Whether it is used on a bright and sunny day or one with overcast skies, the thing just functions properly.  When shooting inside my house, I just mount battery-powered LED puck lights (which can be bought at Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, etc.) on the sunscreen and the chrony performs just as well as it does outdoors.

    Spin that’s a good idea.  There are rainy days when I would like to test some of my  reloads and pellets.    I could test in the garage with a light. .  How and where do you mount the lights?  On the top of the diffuser?

    mrjohns, I’ve never tried having the light projecting above the sunscreen (top-mounted).  I mount the puck lights underneath the sunscreen directly above the sensors.  All it takes is one unit per side.  The lights come with double-sided tape; I think most of the puck lights sold come with it.  The great thing about them is the price.  For a pack of four lights, I paid $14.  That’s much cheaper than the proprietary kit Competition Electronics sells for it.  Also, since they’re of the LED type they last very long, much longer than the Energizer bunny does, which I think is important for those days when you plan to record a string beyond 400 shots.

    I use a CE pro chrono with IR light kit. I chrono strictly indoors and have had absolutely zero errors after 10’s of thousands of shots. Best on the market period unless you step up to a labradar.

    I use a ProChrono as well. Works wonderful at night with the IR lights for my late night tinkering.

    SPINJ, CAN YOU TELL ME HOW MANY LEDS IN EACH LIGHT.  SOME COME WITH TEN AND SOME WITH ONLY THREE.  DOES IT MATTER HOW MANY LEDS PER LIGHT?
    Thanks for the help

These are the ones I use. Each unit has six diodes. You only need two pucks–each one mounted directly above the sensor (of the chrony) on each of the two sunscreens (that is, on the bottom side of the sunscreen).  Use the double-sided tape that comes with the lights to stick them on.
