B-30-1 22 caliber and 177 caliber
« on: October 20, 2006, 12:44:01 PM »
I have received two b-30-1, in today. I am going to do a short review. First off the wood on these guns are great. The 177 is a lighter shade than the 22. There are no visible signs of filler anywhere on the stock.  The bluing is top notch, not to shinny just right. The action is very robust, the cocking arm has a bear trap that works great, from experience it works, my hand slipped when cocking the 177 caliber.  The sites are very good, can be used in dusk condition, and low light. The trigger has not been adjusted but it probably breaks around 5 lbs or higher.

The shooting of the guns are very easy. The recoil is very linear, with a small jolt. There is not to much forward recoil at all just coming back to you. More like shooting a power burner than an airgun.  I haven’t had the chance to chrony both guns yet. The last 22 I sold did about 850-870 fps.  with 14.3  benji diablo’s.  I will get to chrony both this weekend, I know the new owner can’t wait until he gets my report on his 22.  

The cocking action is very easy once you figured out how to do it. I would say the poundage is between 35 and 45 lbs.  The easiest way I have figured out is to place the gun stock on you hip and grab the front of the stock with your left hand, slowly pull the cocking lever back with your right.  That way the leverage is on your hip rather than the cocking arm.

The breech on both are very snug, not like the last one that was hard sometimes impossible to get a pellet in there without using something for leverage.  This about all I can think of until I shoot both more over the weekend. Once I get a good chrony setting I will post them, hopefully the guns will perform as they suppose to.

This is what I am using in the Black Death shoot out at 40 yards with a 3-9 scope. I think it is a very good choice. I love it, Hate the cocking force though. Look for the fps to go up about 50 or 75 and the pattern to get tighter when broke in. I have shot around 700 rounds threw it. It is better every shot. I use Crow Mag's most of the time.





By the way you can get the trigger pull down to around a pound. Remember you can never get a springer to clean and a little lub will do it.

This will probably be the kit I'm going to use for this gun. See if I can get it to shoot a little bit smoother. http://www.airrifleheadquarters.com/catalog/item/251488/2514163.htm

ok, the gun shoots like a dream now. that kit really did the trick, my average shot is around 950 fps with 16.6 fpe. it cocks smoother and shoots smoother.

here's something else. before I did the change out. I had to see if this gun would do the 1100 that xisico is saying. so Ihad soem gamo pba pellets around they are about 5.0 gr I tried one of them and it did 1050fps, no where near the 1100 they are saying.I though I would let you know

In your comparison of the advertised FPS of 1100, and your findings of 1050 thats only 50 FPS. To me that's not a lot of difference.
