Freshly tuned Whisper
« on: March 01, 2009, 04:24:20 PM »
I recently had my new Whisper Deluxe tuned by Bob (Charlie Da Tuna). I can't begin to tell you how happy I am with the whole expirience, just great service all the way around.
 I've had it back for a few weeks, the first thing that I did was mount a new Leapers 3-9X44 scope on it with a 1 piece Accushot mount. I had issues with the scope creeping with the factory set up, so far the new gear is working perfectly. I already installed the GRT-III trigger, that went in after the very first time that I shot the gun. I also stuffed some foam down in the stock, I think that's helping dampen things down a bit.
 So far I've only managed to squeeze about 100 rounds through it due to the cold weather here and I know that it's going to take quite a few more before it's really broke in but man I just can't believe how nice it's shooting already. Now keep in mind that this is my first springer or air rifle aside from my little Daisy when I was a kid, so I don't have anything to really gauge it by. I do know the recoil seems to be about 1/3 of what it used to be and it's much quieter and just all around smoother. There was a little hitch in the cocking mechanism before the tune and now that's like butter. As for the noise, it's makes less noise than the little Crossman C11 CO2 pistol I have.
 I'll post some accuracy data later this spring after Ive had a chance to really get aquainted with this unit and figure out what kind of pellets she likes to shoot.
I can't thank you enough Bob, you were a pleasure to deal with.

Beautiful rifle. I have one coming this week but with the gas ram spring. Since it's been 3 months since you wrote your review, let me know how its still shooting.

My rifle is shooting better now than ever. I don't get to shoot it as much as I would like to but when I get a chance to squeeze off a few rounds it's always ready to go.
Let me know how you like the gas ram set up. I'm considering buying just the gas ram for mine some time down the road.

I sure will. It should be here anyday now. Tell me, do you really think it's all that much quieter? You say that you stuffed the stock with Foam. How's that working?

Have a great day

To be honest it's louder than I expected a pellet rifle to be, but it is my first. It's quieter than my two CO 2 pistols. The tune really helped the spring twang and the foam muffled the thud a little. You won't have to worry about the twang with the gas ram, so it should be pretty quiet.
