« on: August 25, 2012, 12:37:32 PM »
Hi all,

Today I bought myself an Edgun Matador R3. The long version in .25 cal. It produces 54 ftp/ 73 Joule with JSB Exact King. Nice gun!

Nice !! What scope did you/are you going to put on her ? I'm on the list for one also and was going to either go with a Hawke Sidewinder Tactical 6.5-20x42 or Sightron SIII 20x42MMD. Goin' to probably get the Sightron since I already have a Hawke Tactical on my .25 M-rod...Can't wait to get that puppy lol.

Did you actually receive the Edgun, or did you get on the waiting list?

Hi all,

@Matt, she shoots very well. Good trigger, regulated, not too much noise and very accurate: http://www.100mairgun.nl/post/2012/08/EDgun-Matador-Long.aspx

@Henry, on the picture a Schmidt and Bender 6X42 is installed but I'm looking for a scope with a bigger magnification.

@Rico, I recieved it. See the link in #Matt

Congrats on your new aquisition! I have heard about these in 25 cal and see that a few guys have received them but I have not been able to see them listed anywhere in 25 cal (not even on Ed's website) you must have to call on the phone.

Congrats!

I've been after one of these since I heard about them.  I exchanged emails with Tony and got on the list as of Jan 2012.    I'm still waiting.  Did you get yours thru Tony? or another source?
