I was finally able to put the Huben to field use.
My son and I went out Easter day to look for those
pesky wabbits. I had loaded the Huben with 34 gr JSB
.22. I've had it jam in the past with them but I thought
it was done doing that. I opened a new tin to keep the magazine
full and it jammed again. Going back to H&N 21 gr. Never have
had an issue with those. Before it quit I did get a nice sized
jack rabbit. First shot dropped it. Never needed the semi feature
after all.

Congrats and thank for sharing. Nice having the Semi-Auto for follow up shots, but nicer is a 1-shot kill
Try pushing in the pellets further, or making sure they aren't inserted too far. Maybe one or the other is occuring.

I was target shooting with it and had zero jam issues.
Was planning on sticking with the 34's for the whap
factor. Didn't have a jam until I put pellets from
a new tin in it. I had been using a small probe in the
past to seat the pellets a little further in. Kind of a
PITA so I had quit that. The H&N's will be fine.
Certainly is a fun gun to shoot and noticeable improvement's
over my gen 1 Huben.

I had it set to shoot .22 JSB 34 gr at just over 900 fps.

I switched to H&N 21 gr this morning and have it shooting the
same speed. Two clicks on the power adjuster kept it the same
fps range. Should get a few more shots out of it too.

In case anyone missed out, we have more arriving shortly.

I like the accuracy with MEGA-THUMP. Add in semi-auto, and woohooo!!!!

If anyone is on the fence about one of these guns jump off on the
ownership side. Incredible power available or a couple twists of
the power wheel has you shooting in a power saving target mode.
19 shots on a load on the fly magazine. Quiet, well balanced
and just big grins to shoot off a magazine. Fills to 5,000 psi
so no over filling danger from your fill tank.

Grouping is more than adequate for pesting and hunting. Here is
a full magazine at 50 yards...

a RELIABLE Semi Auto is REQUIRED, end of story. I had a FX Revolution one of the very first in the country shooting a High FPS w/18's @ 935 fps and had a LW barrel....had this for six years NEVER a Jam. Only sold because I wanted a .25 Cal Semi Auto....never happened sadly. Should not have sold it. The Huben is documented with many Jams...come on mfg's, give us a RELIABLE Semi Auto in .25 cal. Huben is heavy (ugly IMO)....wish a .25 cal in a platform RELIABLE....would love a platform like the Hummingbird short light weight, quiet, highly accurate and nice looking.

i.e. Wind gusts, movement of target just as one squeezes trigger, a moving target as in Not sitting still Jack Rabbit. RELIABLE, ACCURATE Semi Auto rules IMO.

I never had a problem cycling on my first Huben.
This one has only jammed when using the large 34 gr
JSB. When I shoot H&N 21 gr or JSB 18 gr no problem.
I don't recall if I tried the 34's in my first one.

I have a Monsoon that will occasionally not cycle.
Found out that's more the spring needs to be wound
tighter on the magazine to keep up with the semi speed.
