I like the looks of this.
Please post your views.
Does it work inside?
This one seems easier to use on the bench than the ones that clamp on the gun barrel.
Just be careful that you do not shoot it.
It says hold the muzzle 4 cm to 8 cm = 1.5" to 3.1" from the meter.  Is that true?
$28.92 - $4 if this is your first order?  WOW!

I just ordered today it will be here in about 3-4 weeks via epacket from China. Will post a review once I got it.  According to the review video link that I posted, it should work inside, and looks like the reviewer holding the gun muzzle very close to the meter. I like itís simple setup and compact size. For $28 i would like to take the risk. There area wide range of shooting chronograph on the market from $28 to $500 ( LabRadar) just pick whatever it suit your budget and requirement

Best regard !

AliExpress also has this one that clamps to the barrel.
Does anyone know which is best?
Will a break barrel rifle recoil damage the one that clamps on the barrel?

Jimmy, I ordered this one today.  I will post the results when I get it and try it out.
I already have a ProChrono Pal plus a Caldwell Kit, so this is just something else to play with.

I have one but the charging cord is a USB plug that can charge off my desktop computer.
I wouldn't trust myself to shoot at a target through the chrono.
I set it up on the tripod and  keep the rifle on a bench rest and eyeball the barrel to the chrono then shoot.
It worked perfectly and recorded a string of 25 shots.
No instructions come with it, just play it by ear.
It's very small and I like that,

I'd love to know how accurate it is compared to a well known brand. Please post results if you can compare!

Compact is cute and handy; but the shorter the distance between sensors, the harder the chrono and the user have to work to produce accurate results.  While very fast clock speeds and sensors help, angular errors are more easily induced, where the pellet has travels perhaps 10% further, giving false low readings.

Even just mounting sensors in the device with a millimeter or two spacing error can start producing greater than 2% "fast" or "slow" results.  If the manufacturer has a name brand chrono, he can calibrate his product by shooting through both at the same time.  Else, you just need to check that.

That said, I am absolutely flabbergasted at what the Chinese can produce now, at such low cost.  Good for the American consumer, but not so good for the American engineer and factory worker.  Unfortunately, the American consumer used to be an engineer or factory worker, before they lost their jobs.  Quite the conundrum...

If some clever Chinese company would only produce JSB quality pellets at 1/4 the price, they could rule the world :)

Cyclops Videos Joe W Rhea has several good airgun and scope videos on YouTube.
I am looking forward to trying the little airgun chronograph.

Funny you should ask ..... a lot of people think industries make profits (or SHOULD)..... I sell cars for a living, and with competition, offers, specials, truecar (BS), Carvana (BS) etc., my personal take on a sale is often down to $100 on a $35,000 car! And people think I make $1000 per sale! The dealership doesn't even make that sometimes.
The cost on that chrono unit is about $3! add some labor cost, marketing and shipping etc., they make a profit. Just not huge, they depend on multiple sales to make their money.
Remember, it is easier to sell ONE million items for a buck that to sell ONE for a MILLION!

Multiply meters per second by 3.28 to get feet per second.
Examples: 
200 meters per second times 3.28 equals 656 feet per second.
222 m/s x 3.28 f/m = 728 f/s
250 x 3.28 = 820

since i dont really need another one, the lack of FPS is a deal killer for me.
