..... It's compact, not too light, not too slick but not agricultural either, accurate, good shot count, looks good, gives a satisfying hit being .22 and, because of the short barrel, feels like it really spits the pellets out. It's good, honest retro shooting that puts a smile on my face.
When I bought it, I was advised that the previous owner had always ran it with JSBs so, I did a few pellet tests and settled on JSB RS - at 13.43gn they were a nice fast .22 pellet and they were accurate.
...... The one rabbit and numerous rats I've taken with this combination have gone down with one hell of a whack
But ....... those pellets always needed a little effort to push them from the mag to the barrel. I started wondering if I could find better
On my only day off last week, I took the rifle and a bunch of different .22s down to Black Cat for some testing .......
