will an offset scope mount work?
- I got a B6 (.177) in last friday, overall not too bad.The trigger defiantly needs work,, not as heavyof trigger as I expected but has a very long pull.** I do like it like that as it is predictable, no feedback from the trigger. Polishing the trigger helped to smooth firing sequence, this is one of the few springers that my boy can shoot steadily without pulling the rifle down. But it is a very buttery trigger, takes time to get use to. The XS-B3-1 is on the fly, I touch it and fires right away.- That rear sight is way too close for me to get a good sight picture am working on modifying itto a peep/ghost ring.** Flip the sight, add a washer to the stop bolt so it does not touch the top of the rifle when flipping it. Dremmel the opening a tad bit to the sides to make it wider, and maybe a little vertically. (Will take pics of mine) It did help a lot. Also dremmel under the rear sight, it is plastic, if you need more leeway to crank it down to prevent the sight from touching the rifle.- Not what I would consider a "youth gun" dueto the short cocking handle, it is pretty stiff.**Yeah, and make sure the fingers on the holding hand are nowhere close the opened chamber, and/or where the handle rests at.- The finish was great on this one. There was a little "rust dust"around the front sight** Seems standard across the board- The stock extension locks up real solid**Mine has some play, locktyte fixed it.- The shot cycle is just a short thump, no spring noise...** Once you get it tuned, in other words cleaning it up/ polishing spring ends/ etc, it will be very (and I mean) very quiet. Perfect for indoor shooting. Mine is on .22, the only bad thing when it hits, it hits hard. Which is where most of the sound will come from.If I can get the trigger more predictable, think it will be a funrifle to shoot.- Thanks for all the photos of the tear down. Will be taking mine apartbut it wont be very soon.** You are welcome!
FYI, I chronoed a .177 QB6 this evening. After some wide variations, it settled to a rough average of 630-650 fps. I'll get it cleaned up and see how it goes. This is one cool little gun.
