Default Got a new toy

Picked this thing up in a horse trade. Its a .25 WarFlex. Still getting her tuned up for how I want her to shoot. But she starting pretty good. Group is a 10 shot group at 30yrds. Iíll stretch her legs when I get her tuned.

Also could we start a Air Gun thread?? I think it would be cool. I know thereís a few air gunners on here.

I built a hpa compressor out of a oxygen concentrator that fills medical oxygen bottles. And NO I donít fill with oxygen. I only used the 2 stage pump, solenoids from grangers, a pressure switch, relays & shop air compressor. I fill my sbca bottle to 4200psi.

Current air rifles:

Sam Yang Sumatra .25 2500
Sam Yang Sumatra .22 2500
Sam Yang Dragon Claw .50
Sentry HC Deluxe side lever .22
Marauder .22
Marauder pistol that has been converted to a .25 carbine.
Airforce Talon SS .22
Wicked Air Rifle WarP .25

Seen that gun in person, it is a work of art and accurate. He was hitting a 3in spinner at 200 or 300 yards. He had some issues with his scope mounts and didnít get them sorted out til he got back to Cali. He was the other shooter on my Catalina Goat hunt.

I didn't know air rifles were so cool. I just looked at a bunch, and some of them suckers can get high dollar. Pretty cool none the less.
