Can a sling ans bipod be affixed to this rifle? And does the scope come with the rifle, or does one need ordered separately?
Is there a video review of the .22 version posted online?
Apparently the X20S is capable of driving some of the lighter 177 pellets supersonic. If a pellet breaks the sound barrier, then the suppressor isn't going to stop it from being obnoxiously loud. First question: How heavy a 177 pellet do you need to use to stay subsonic? Second question: As a practical matter, is it easier to find 22 pellets than heavy enough 177 pellets?
Mine could not go ss even with 5.2gr alloy. 8gr hit 800, 10.5 685. 177 pellets are typically easier to find, and cheaper. The 22 version makes more power but the trajectory is worse. The loudest part of the gun is the spring so I would use spring tar or another method to quiet it. Not much point is having what is probably the quietest suppressor out there when the spring is so loud.
Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know.
I have owned this rifle for 2 years and have put over 4000 pellets through it. Anything 10 grams or more stays subsonic. Some of the 8 gram pellets I shoot (RWS Superdome) also stay subsonic.
What size rings are on the rifle?
From the photos i would say probably medium rings are included. Its only a 4x32 scope so you wouldn't need very tall rings.
Can you suggest a lead pellet that will travel under 1000 fps, be accurate,and be a good option for pigeons?
Yes, Baracuda 10g or more or Diablo 10g or more stay under 1000 fps, are extremely accurate and take pigeons down easily.
Try Baracuda Hunter or Beeman Kodiaks. Anything over 10 grains should slow it down enough.
how dose this gun come packege clam shell or in box
It comes in a box
How heavy is the pull on this gun...Would a 10yr old be able to break it?
The cocking effort is adjustable if you want to open the gun up. The power drops to match but it also gets smoother, quieter, and more accurate as you go down. It's something to think about since it's really the only way to get a lighter cocking gun, and it's adjustable anywhere between full to ~half power so you can start low and increase it he grows. I have a Crosman (which is the same inside) that cocks at 12lbs. chevota at hotmail if you need how to info.
Cocking effort is 28 pounds a little stout for 10 year old. This is adult sized air gun.
Do you mean cocking effort? It's a magnum air rifle, so it would not be suitable for a 10 year old.
