Isn't a RAM .22 a B28 anyway?  Speaking from lots of magnum experience I'd want a tuned one from Mike!  Magnums are harsh to shoot at first and take awhile to break in.

You may have a wait for the .22's, minor glitch at the factory. They ran out of the right pellets for testing and the inspector has to wait for them to arrive. Wait will be around two months or so I think...

Why will it take them 2 months to get pellets for testing? Don't they make the testing pellets there in China? I mean China's a big country but 2 months to get something from (even) one end to the other?
What are the pellets, on a slow boat from the US?   ;)

I would rather have a wood stock B28 than a synth stock RAM. As for the .177 being accurate because it's leaving the vibrating bbl faster? YOu could just cut the bbl down a little so the pellet leaves even faster yet. All mine are cut except the RWS34P.

ST77, you could get a .22 B28 and have what you want. If the power isn't the same just swap the BBL to the RAM and see if there is a difference. Stephan @=S+S%^$# is selling XS-28 (B28) for 149 new http://www.@#$%^.com/Xisico-XS28M-Air-Rifle-p/xisicoxs28.htm or you can wait to see if the RAM makes it to .22 cal, or buy a BBL from Mike Melick.

Have him chop and crown it for you before sending out. That way you get the pro crown job from the beginning.

I have been bugging the importer for the .22 barrels so they may have finally gotten through to Umarex and got the .22 RAM coming. The two month wait will be due to shipping time and getting the rifles out to distributers for release. Just hope it all goes well for them as these can be nice rifles. Next thing will be to get the factory to put the top hat and fitted guide and get rid of the piston liner, the big boss liked the ones I showed them so it could be coming after they use up all the parts in the inventory...

I figure with the lube job and shipping included in my price i should still give @#$%^& a run for their money.

Mike do you think they might consider a wooden stock for the RAM? I like the RAM because of the Weaver rail and no droop. Both my 28's have droop but the RAM didn't have any. I was able to put a wood stock on my RAM and it really makes a difference on how it shoots.

That is something that needs to be taken up with Umarex, start bugging them and they might put the wood on. As I can get the wood stocks they are available...just have to swap them out for the plastic...

That's a good option to know about. Those stocks are not really that expensive. Just have to remember to get the trigger guard too, since it is molded into the plastic one.

Dmike,

One thing I gotta ask, did you work on that stock yourself?   That does NOT look like an ordinary stock, even the 350 stock. 

Nice looking setup, just doesnt look like you simply chopped the bbl and threw a stock on, that looks refinished.

God bless,

Farmer

@Paul68 The stock is from a B28 that cracked at the fore end screws on me. I fixed it up and stippled the checkering out.

 @VAFarmer,
Thanks Farmer, yes I did all the work on the stock, I had to fix a small crack and wanted to darken it up a little but found the checkering had filler in it so I did a quick stipple on the checkering and sunk in a dowel in the wrist grip area to prevent a future mishap, you can see the work I did on it here.
