The airgun site tutorial was of immense help - thanks again for that! :bigrin: .

Shown here with a basic Weaver K3-F scope. (duplex X-hairs)

When kids start in with fire poppers this evening, I'll set up a target for sight in and group. SW


All-right!

On your way there now!
Those K-series 1" tubes look sorta cool on air guns.
I ain't never seen a K-3-F in person yet.

Nice going Hogger!

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

Doc,

Having a bit of trouble getting pellets chambered. Cock the bolt, drop a pellet in place and... the bolt won't close. Took the steel breech off and out dropped a pellet. Loaded 3 consecutive shots just fine and off to the range this morning for getting the scope dialed in.

Same thing. Dropped a pellet in the breech... bolt wouldn't close.

I realize long distance diagnoses don't work well, but does it sound like a familiar issue to you? SW

All the dragons are slain and the 362 is working fine. Grabbed it and the chronograph to record 625 fps avg. with 8 pumps for the 14.3 grain pellet. No plans to put a flat face kit in it. SW

Keep it in the back of your mind- it may change over time ;)

I'm almost certain that the tube diameter is 22-XX, which is a single size bigger than the 13-XX~ thus, velocity gains will most likely be achievable... which could come in handy for heavy weight pellet use.

Your rifle is edging my Seneca dragonfly in terms of performance, and it has a flat top piston in it.
I'm averaging about 645 fps with the 16 grain pellets it's bore favors.

In the mean-time, I have another build starting.
Put together a slightly mis-matched flat top piston and valve from the bits and pieces laying around the parts box.
Some-where in my stash of stuff, I have at least one, probably two 14" .22 bbls. I had worked them up previously on the 22-89 platform, and was less than impressed with performance.
The barrel length is quite handy though, and would make a handy size carbine, which was the mfgr's original intent...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail
