You Can't Ask For Better People
« on: March 15, 2009, 01:06:42 AM »
GTA HAS GREAT PEOPLE
CFXMARAUDER is one of them.



I just bought my first PCP from BigCat1.
He had a .22 Disco from Mac1 equipped with a full TKO shroud, power adjuster and RJ Riser.
He gave me a good deal for the Rifle pump and everything, so hats of to him also.

THANKS TROY



The only thing about the rifle that I really don't like,
there is no barrel bands to keep the fully shrouded barrel with the riser in place.
For now, I went full redneck. I used a wood spacer and a couple hose clams to hold it in place.
My brother in law works works for a company that  makes gears for GMC. I gave him
the measurements for the bands and asked him to make two of them. I will use the clamps I made
until he gets them to me.

NO I WILL NOT SHOW A PICTURE OF THE UGLY RED NECK CLAMPS.



CFX was wanting me to get this set up really bad because he knew I have been looking for a B51
set up like his. This was a good set up and he got in touch with me on it. Well, long story short,
you cant ask for a better friend than CFX. In the mail today I received a gift from him for the rifle.
He sent me a nice Tasco Target Varmint 6-24X40 scope with high profile leapers rings.
He must have zeroed his rifle at 20 to 25 yards with it before. I put the scope on and was withing 5 shots of having
it zeroed out of the box. What can I say? With people like CFX on this forum, its no wounder that GTA is
the greatest airgun  forum in the world.

All I have to do now is find the rifles sweet PSI spot and the right pellet. It does ok with the
CrowMags, holds a decent group but nothing to write home about. Its VERY quiet with the shroud and the
rifle has some power. I tried a crow mag on a little old defenses sparrow..... THWAAP!!! Looked like I tore a
feather pillow case loose in a pillow fight up in a tree. It took a minute or two for all the feathers to quit falling.
I am certain there will be a few groundhogs with a splitting headache this summer. Crows, no match for the mags....

Looking forward to a great sumer with this one.
Thanks again Brent, (CFX), you really made my day.....

Brent,

I take my hat off to you. You are a true gentleman.
(And if your wife is reading this, she is saying, "you don't know him like I do")



I don't know what to say except thanks.
It is people like you that make GTA a really special place.



It's amazing how people you don't even really know here on GTA  treat you.
First you send me that really nice 9-24X40 scope for the disco, (now minty fresh :D ).
Now in the mail today was a box  of .22 CPHP and a tin of the  .22 Beeman Kodiak
extra Heavy. I can do the mat son,  its one of the nicest things anyone has done for me
in a long time. I just want you to know I wont forget this, it means a great deal to me.



Check your Email friend.  :emoticon:
Its the least I can do.



The Disco is one holeing now. Cant wait to try out the Hps.

I'm going to hold off shooting till the rain passes (3 Days) and get the barrel bands on it.
I am also anxious about trying to make that new stock. That should keep me busy for a while. :p





PS, stay away from the dancing Pirate juice. It could cost you a B51.

Hope that rain passes quick for ya...Also watch that the band dont put pressure on the shroud or ya will get crazy shots and possiable clipping...You want it to just rest in the bands..
