Feel Like Music: what leapers scope is dude? 6-24x50?
naf38s: good review, have wondered about this air rifle, pros and cons. Thank you. And as a side note, your English is very well done. I appreciate your efforts to make the review!
Marijn -NL-: Where to get thAt tripod
Math J: How much FPS?
Cip DV: This is Cometa Lynx MK I. Just found out that the MkII exist. Seems that MkII solves some problems and tunes the action but in essence it looks the same. On the Cometa website is no mention about MkII. Strange.
DIOGOCOSTA SILVA: Clip DV, it's the Lynx V10 MK II ?
Cip DV: I made it bigger to seal better and to minimize the wear on the O-ring. About the misalignment, I used a circular file for metal and adjusted the channel on which the probe exits.
airgunnergr: So basically you didn't change the "hitting of the edge" issue of the probe/bolt but you made it a bit bigger for better handling of the pellets. The bolt still hits the edge a little, right?
Cip DV: Sorry, the probe was made on a lathe in a company that produces metal parts. I was there supervising the process but no images were taken. It was more than six months ago. The original probe was the starting point and the worker made with my specs: 1mm in diameter wider, the groove for the O-ring made a little narrower and the tip of the probe, 1mm longer and 1/2 mm wider.
airgunnergr: Would it be possible to make a video about the manufacturing and the installation of your new custom-made loading probe ? I am also concerned about the probe issue and afraid that it will always damage the o-ring....
curso88: @cipdv That model of Leapers viewfinder appears in this video?
Mangatuning: Thanks a lot! :)
Cip DV: you have a message
Mangatuning: Could you give me a link? Thanks in advance!
Lyecdevf: Well the FX monsoon that is my favorite FX airgun (design wise and since it is semi automatic) costs 2X this airgun where I live and I can purchase it any time. This airgun on the other hand is not available in any shop that near by and I would probablly have to make a trip to Spain to buy it directly from the factory or some how order it from them directly.
For me that would be more of an issue I think than fixing and tunning it. I already have an airgun so time would not be an issue!
Cip DV: I bought it for 600 eur. online
Cip DV: Sorry if I seemed upset. Glad you share the passion and about what I was saying about the price compared with the FX, Is in my own perspective ( ~4 x the price of the Lynx ) too expensive especially to import here. I just dream about one.
Lyecdevf: No need to get upset with me. I think you have done a really good job with your review.
I have a lot of passion for airgunning so that is what I meant by being ready to spend more money. Of course I am not going to buy some thing that I may have isssues with right from the start and you did mention a couple of things that you had to fix including the trigger, loading port,...but I like the design on this airgun and that is some thing that I value a lot with airguns. I may be interested!
Cip DV: I said is a nice gun and cheap. if you like to tweak things is an excellent gun.
If possible, go and see it in a gun-shop before spending money, you will know what to look for.
After solving that problem with the loading port I'm more than happy with it.
Spending more than twice on any FX with similar specs is OK if you have more money than passion.
