I spent my first two sessions with this pistol deciding on where to set the hammer force. As it turned out it wasn't much different than the factory setting. I'm getting 30 good shots at an average of 570 fps in .22 cal.
I did take the time to polish the trigger components and lube with moly grease. This trigger is sweet now!
Mounted a cheap red dot and after only a few zeroing shots I was able to shoot this 20 yard, 10 shot target.
Very satisfied.

These inexpensive little guns can shoot pretty well.

Basic 4 MOA red dot.
20 yards.
5-shot groups.
15.9gr. JSB's

(Yeah...the "green bugger" grips became "gray bugger" grips (which seems to be what happenes if you either leaver a bugger along long enough, or spray paint the offending plastic right off the bat).





Might be a "trick" here worth trying (and also why the hand drawn targets). Make the target just large enough to center the red dot, and you aren't dealing in the size of the read dot, but the CENTERING of that read dot (would have to try a 10MOA red dot in a 12MOA circle to test that, but it makes sense to me).


Ended up a bit high for 20yards...which was OK by me for what I was doing.




That's not "match grade". Will stay well under a dime (even if you pile all 20 shots onto one target).

MKI or MK II...it's the same guts, and they are certainly willing pistols.

Mine groups well on paper too. I really bought it for close range
say under 20 yards pesting. This weekend it got over 20 ground squirrels.
We are having a banner year for population in Utah. We had been using other
guns and it was just becoming a massacre so I switched to the Airmax with
a Red Dot thinking it might be more challenging. I did miss a few but it
sure got more than it's fair share.
