I recieved an "Airgun Report" when I bought my Panther .22. It says it fired five RSW Hobby pellets 739, 734, 735, 728, 737 fps. Based on these numbers, do you think it's breaking 700fps shooting CP Hollow Points? I don't have a chrony...

Thanks

Usually stock RWS 34 shoot the 14.3 grain pellet in the mid 600's to high 600's depending on how it comes from the factory. But I doubt that it will break the 700fps mark in stock form with 14.3 grain pellets.

I put a JM spring in my Panther when I got it and at that time I averaged 730 fps with Hobbies and 667 CP's. Mine never liked CP's. Now broken in it shoots 14.93 FTS's at 694 fps and 678 for CP's

Those velocities seem low, though, this would depend on your location, height above sea level.

The RWS34 is a great platform that tunes nicely with several tunes to choose from, and able to accurately shoot well over 700 fps.

I am lucky to get from 600 to 650 from my 34 with a JM Kit in it. It was my first tune so I think if I go back in it I can get a few more fps by a better hone, size the seal and a washer or 2 on top but it would shoot rough like that.

I will be switching to a Vortek kit for it in the near future.
Tom maybe you can make a kit for 34's that has room for power adjustment like you did for the TX/B40 kit.

High Mike,
If you like, you can send us your RWS34, as is, and we will balance the shot cycle with a 'Good Will tune' incorporating the exclusive [Pro-Guide2 Damping kit]+[Pro-Seal 28]. This should put the velocity well over the 700+fps range using 14.3s.
You will find our address on the website:
www.vortekproducts.com
We look forward in answering any email questions you may have.
Best Regards and stay tuned!

is stock and several years old. With an average of 10 different pellets it shoots 694. For the pellets you mention it shoots RWS HP 14.2 730, RWS SD 14.5 714, RWS SP 14.6 705. The HP as well as the others are pretty accurate too.... Frank

This is the same Mike from Big Bear (700 foot above sea level). I will be more than happy to send in the gun as I almost never shoot it anymore. Do you want me to remove the scope before I send. I am thinking of sending it in my Plano hard case.
I am sure your people will do the best they can with it and do expect some performance loss once it arrives in the upper atmosphere of Big Bear.

Thank you for extending your services.

Again Tom (Vortek) extend his good will beyond the average.

 It does happen!

 My .22 Model 36 (same powerplant) clocked an average of 715 fps shooting 14.3 gr Crosman Points. Some guns are just hotties right out of the box. I dunno if they are assembled with different parts or if the installed and assembled parts work just right... I wouldn't have believed it either if I hadn't shot the rifle over the chronograph myself.
