Well just got back from shooting, although going out later.

This is a pretty much factory gun from Archers Airguns in .22 caliber. I shot many shots, maybe 25 or so and all shots were in the 650fps range with CPHP pellets and they were shoot my level of accuracy too ;- )

I will shoot it a bit more and may put in a Disco breach seal, but not sure.

At 650 fps I wanted to see the power this gun had for starlings at 30-40 yds, so I set up a soup can at 42.5 yards, (rangefinded) at let the can have it - BAM through and through. This is a steel soup can, so the pellet had some poop, the can was free standing on a stone fence !

Here is a entrance hole showing the cement wall behind it:

Yes it is a more expensive than buying the "O" rings myself, but I got them. Also ordered the poly breach transfer port seals. now I don't have to run to home depot and mess around cutting them. Those seals should last a long long time.

And just got the kits, will change breach / port seal before I shoot this weekend, and then chronograph again. Would love to pick up at least 40 fps with the 14.3 gr pellets I'm using.... That would be great....give me about 700 fps... Perfect for a light hunting and can smashing.

I think this was it, but as I remember it was cheaper, needed to get some "O" rings, but now that I know what sizes and where to go, no need to order at these high prices.
