I was playing with mine in the basement 10 meter range.
Out of curiosity I took the LDC off. Fairly big POI change
for 10 meters. I tested it twice to be sure.
I'd left the base of the LDC on the barrel so not to have to undue
the barrel cap every time. So there should not have been any change
other than noise. Thought it good to know so if I'm out pesting and
noise isn't an issue to adjust for non LDC use.

clipping, or creating turbulence?

There have been many threads started on this gun and I was trying some
earlier suggestions. The breech barrel mount can spin and make tightening
the LDC a challenge. Placing an O ring between the barrel cap and LDC was
mentioned. It shot all over. After taking the LDC sections apart
this came out.



Had to be clipping. So I put loc tite on the breech
that spins as well as the barrel cap that holds the LDC as that
was spinning as well when putting the sections on. All feels
very secure now. I even drilled the LDC Section holes a bit
larger to be safe. Have not seen lead debris in the sections
and it was grouping much better.



When you mention possible turbulence I have added the hair curler mod
to the inside of each section.



They fit snug and do not come near the center hole.



Obviously I will now try it with those removed and see if there is a
difference. I haven't drilled the suggested shroud vent holes yet because
they would be where I've put my spare pellet holders.

I submitted my order for one of these pistols last Friday. Got the confirmation a couple minutes later. My CC has been charged.

I haven't heard squat since then. Is this the "normal" procedure for Mrod-air? No response from a couple of emails either...

Yes. But not to worry. You'll get your pistol. They had a few left in stock but might have sold out before you placed your order. They say plenty more are in the pipeline. Make no mistake, these pistols are worth the wait. I waited for 7 weeks and would wait 7 more for one of these.

Yeah, but it's been posted that you couldn't order if they weren't in stock. And that it would ship the next day...

So it's 5-8 business days, give or take, from the time they get dropped off (which may have some handling time before getting there) and the time they arrive depending on where you are located. They're down in Arizona and it took the later end of it to arrive here in NY when the first batch were shipped out.

edit: Also they come with a male quick connect fill probe as a heads up, so if your pump/bottle/compressor/ect doesn't have the female quick connect end you'll need one of those. I didn't have it and ended up having to machine a male threaded fill probe out rather than spending the extra money and time to buy one.

From what I understand their system will not take an order if out of stock
unless it's a advertised pre order. No tracking provided it will just show up.
Communication is very hit and miss. They will eventually come through.

As mentioned, it is a fun gun and a good value for it's potential.

You probably won't get a lot of communication during the wait, but the pistol will come, and I bet you'll like it.
