No numbers yet, chrono is still trying to warm up. Once the weather warms I will dial it in.

Like lead. It is front heavy and rock steady for being this way. I would suggest or redo with aluminum tubes I think.

The more I think about it the barrel is the heaviest. Once I find a proper barrel the weight will be down big time.

Did some shots across the chrony. Impressive but not what I wanted this build for. CPHP 14.3g on low power 770, and on high power 980 fps. Jb monsters 25.4g low 550, high power 740fps. This portable air pig was built with 499fps in mind and shoot many times from a fill. High power I see is not needed so weaker spring or larger caliber barrel.

It looks strange how the barrel deviates from the airtube.

The barrel is straight with the breech. I angled the inlet slightly to avoid contact. You may notice the barrel is tapered as well.

I like the concept but canít get my head round the impression of the tubes being fanned out, I realise that the barrel is tapered but could you not encase it in a off set carbon shroud, create the impression of everything pointing the same way.
This is not criticism it is a fine piece of work is just the aesthetics that spoil it I think.
