    You did win the wood lottery with that beautiful stock! I bet it looks even better in person. The song "Some Guys Have All The Luck", (Maxi Priest version) just came into my head lol.

    Thanks for the comments guys.. .after running it through the chronograph I've determined this particular gun is shooting too hot and the groups thus far at distance show this. Average speed shooting 10.34 jsb heavies is 935fps or 20ft lbs. Also which I found strange is that the regularltor gauge is showing 170 on it….I think most 20ft lb guns shooting .177 are set up at 100 on the regulator pressure. Definitely need to get this speed dialed down to shoot better groups.

    @kdog – Keith, I agree.  I think its very interesting how accuracy can change dramatically with only small differences in speed. The Bantam that you sold me shot the 10.3s at 950 on High, and 920 on Medium (Low was around 800fps). You wouldn't think it makes that much difference, but it was half dollar sized groups at 50 yards at 950, and penny sized groups at 920. I found out (from some guys here on AGN) how to reduce the HST, lowered the speed to 895 on Medium, and now it gets dime sized groups at 50 yards with the JSB 10.3s.

    170 seems super high, is the gage broken? Should be between 100 and 120 bar I would think…

    She may also be a candidate to shoot the heavier pellets? Would the 13.4s be a consideration?

    Good point…  But in my experience, the standard LW barrel doesn't like the 13.4s at much greater than 800 fps.  I've tried them at 830 fps, and they were all over the place at 50 yards. Reduce to 800, and they are pretty accurate, but not as accurate as the 10.3s at 895…

    Good to know. I’m looking to get a .177 myself. I’m thinking a Cricket Carbine. I would guess the same would apply to the CZ barrels right? Thanks.

    It would make sense, but can't say for sure. I'm thinking the CZ barrel is pretty much like the LW barrel. I have two .177 rifles, one has the LW barrel, and the other has the FWB barrel (not sure if they make their own or outsource them)…

    Mike yes I'm trying the 13.4 and they are shooting good but  with a occasional flyer…the monsters are shooting at 830fps…still a little hot. This reg  gauge went down to 150 bar but now I'm asking myself why it is fluctuating. Even at 150 I think that's still way to to high…I agree with you I think it should be more in the neighborhood of 100-120. Hopefully there is a easy way to adjust this but after taking the stock off it I don't think so. Waiting to here back from AOA  on this.

    Thank you Mark….on a side note the Crossman premier heavies heavier than the jsb heavies and are shooting better….Cp heavies weigh 10.5 and are shooting about 900 fps.
