I know I can rely on you and Jay to help me understand the rifle. Gimme back my wallet when you get finished spending my money for me (again).  :D

Big Ed has full shroud kits for this rifle including a breech riser to accommodate a larger diameter shroud. Others make  LDCs that fit without the need for a threaded barrel. So options for quieting the rifle down are out there. Mike also tests each gin for shooting and holding pressure before it ships. I like a rifle with a magazine. Have two of them. Tons of fun. But I have one that is a single shot, and I like it equally well, and it doesn't run through pellets like water through a sieve when I shoot it. Variety. The spice of life! ;)

I got a copy from Gary. found a new d/l site for it too. I wonder if this rifle will be as accurate as my little CZ200?

thats  :P well if all the stars aligned in China that day when they made the barrel and then again when the rifle was built maybe,  if it is your luck is great and run out and buy a lottery ticket  ;D

Some of them shoot great I had a BAM B40 that was built on the right day I wish I never sold it....Until I bought this HW97 none of the springers I have bought have come close it it

yeah fp, the price of $216.95 shipped for a BAM B50 is hard to pass on.

That's one heck of a price, but I couldn't find it on the site last night for specs info. From looking at pics of it, I can see some M-rod DNA in it, and that discourages me.

I wouldn't make that assumption about Marauder DNA in the B50. iirc the '50 was out before the Marauder by a couple of years at least. Also, yes, that's the price. Confirmed by Mike.

As you can see in the BAM article, it's a clone of the Daystate Huntsman pcp. Still, it's good to read up on the B50/51 before buying. There is always "the book" too ;)

I am having trouble not jumping on one thats a great price...they are abit heavy but they were alot more money just a few years back....I really didn't need the CZ200S in .177 either....I had a S200 already but good deals are so tempting

The B50/51 do require somebody that likes to work on them

Tom, I bought some BAM Like-me juice just a while ago. Actually I have two very good friends in Gary and Jay who are BAM masters and will guide me through any troubled waters. I understand it's an easy rifle to work on. So, I'm stoked for it! ;D
You have an FX Monsoon!  :o I just noticed that.

I love my B50. I bought it from Best a few years ago. It is easy to work on and capable of impressive power.
I'd like to get one of those AR2078B rifles, but with the thumbhole stock off an AR2078.

The Bam50/51 is a direct copy of the original Daystate Huntsman, parts swap back & forth with the exception of Bam did noy use locking nuts(jam screws hex) on the trigger adjustments otherwise (well and made in China) it is a Daystate Huntsman.
 On the b50/51's almost 100% of the factory barrels after a cut (1/4") and crown (these days with RF .177 most all gunsmthis can do this, $25.00 around here if you carry it in) are match grade accurite (which to me means 1/2" at 55 yards).
Easy to work on, five minutes to tune it anyway you like, trigger will go to 5 ounces-goes to 4 but dont do that-. Great rigs.
