What a cool song. Brought a smile to my dial.
Thanks Hugh! Yeah the longest the lease could be extended was 6 mos. which still wasn't gonna get me to a CT delivery date so I gave her up.
I was really proud of this group till last shot ruined it. Shooting at 25 meters with TX200 10.3 grain aa pellets. First four shots were 3/16 ctc. last shot opened it up to 5/16 ctc.When I get to the point that I can complain about adding an extra 1/8" to my group that made it 5/16" overall; I will be a happy man...
Some seriously fine shooting there!! Stay proud!

Mine is great. I added a regulator and it shoots even better. Turned it down to about 900fps and it's a laser with decent shot count.

I've bought all of my guns for under 750$. I dont feel any are high end but I do like them and feel they were well worth what I paid. I ve been playing with pcp airguns since the benjamin discovery came out . I do like the tech of the new guns but I cant justify the purchase because what I have is as accurate as I am and I'm happy with that.
I can make 1 hole groups out to 50yds. with the sub $300 guns that I have.... I also drive a 2005 Nissan titan pickup truck and a 1998 RV ... some folks wouldn't be happy with those either.
I'll add to that, its fun to learn the fundamentals of your tool/gun. From basic qc check (deburring, polishing, lubing), to tuning (hammer strike/stroke/spring adjustments, regulation, porting, ect).
Theres no such thing as cry once buy once because those guys will run after the next carrot once its dangled in front of their eyes...
"Buy once cry once" is such an ego thing to say anyhow, as if the gun you purchased is the mightiest sword in all the kingdom...We haven't lived in an age where people buy once for hundreds of years, technology moves too fast and most peoples desires shift and evolve just as fast...
Just enjoy whatever it is you do. Buy a lot, cry a lot, or buy none and cry a lot, or buy a lot and cry none, really plenty of options.
Most of these X vs Y threads are beyond me, give people two options, and even if one is favored there will be those who argue firmly for either...its really subjective.
What a cool song. Brought a smile to my dial.
Why don't you renew the lease?
Thanks gents! And that reminds me - this pic is one of the best reasons to drive an EV :

I can't help but think that crosman ,being who they are with availability of parts ,would not have pre arranged a deal with Kral before the Cayden,Kratos and Akela were produced. I bet Crosman will have replacement parts for all 3 guns. You could probably get the answer from the tech department st Crosman i would think.How could they have the 5 year warranty without part availability without sending to Turkey? Wouldn't be the cheapest route for Crosman to go. Just a thought.
They probably have a certain number of basic parts on hand for repairs like poppets and o-rings, much more than that they probably just send you a new gun. Then they most likely just send the returned guns back to turkey in bulk for refurbishment and repackaging for resale.

Rinus, In my experiance the Sentry is a fine rifle right out of the box.
I have the 705-9k HC deluxe. Believe me, I'm happy shooting the 15.89 gr Hades from it. Really stacks them... 6mm 5 shot group ctc @ 25m. Currently it is at power level 4.5 I get 4 good mags (32 shots) without losing accuracy. But I would like it to shoot slugs good as well... I need to be able to take e.g. coyote-sized game @ 30-50 meters with a good head shot.
Any idea how many ft.lbs should be able to do that? If I can get the needed energy from the factory ports, I will leave it at that...

So, if I were to buy a Father's Day air rifle for my dad who has two break barrels now and has never owned a PCP,
What kind of pump will he be using? The Avenger is much less hand pump and bottle friendly given the higher max fill pressure, though many people just don't fill it all the way for the sake of being easier on the regulator. In another thread people seemed quite happy with their Kral made Benjamin Craftsman Series and they come with the 5 year Benjamin warranty so that could be another option. The Cayden or Kratos are around $80-$100 more than a Marauder on Amazon respectively but have a side lever breech and nicer stocks in my opinion, the Kratos also uses a bottle.
