Things I liked: Uniformity consistancy not one bent skirt in about 1000 pellets .work great in my marauder
Things I would have changed: Price of course We all would rather pay about 12.00 bucks for a can of pellets.
What others should know: I hear a lot of people talking about these and other pellet cans not having screw on lids. Look in the candy section of your store. There are many candy containers with a flip open lid like a tic tac container for example that fit great in your pocket and provide pellet protection for in the field .I mount some small homemade foam blocks ono top of my scope ring with Velcro to hold about 8 pellets Instead of a large capacity pellet holder because it seems like some of the skirts always get bent just from normal handling before they get used.hunting is usually never so fast and furious that you instant access to 40 pellets wrapped around your scope or stock.or if you have a rotary mag such as a marauder carry three and then load undamaged pellets out of the candy containers. I came to this way of doing things because I used to shoot jsb exact RS 13.43 grn out of a couple discos I had with magical results. , but anyone that uses RS's knows how thin the skirts are These i think are made by jsb although they are 25 and stouter they still can get bent and make you miss that squirrel or crowthat youve been waiting all day for. Try the tic tact containersit works well.
Things I liked: Best budget scope of all the other brands hands down. NC star, Barsaka ,Walther ,Tasco don't even come close in the same price range .They are a signifcant step ahead in quality.I'm replacing the scopes on all three of my pcps with this model , so every time I pick one up I'm looking thru the same scope .Even the cheaper Golden Image series have great glass . I have a 4x32 and a 3x9x32.Those got me into the leapers line.plus the rings are of good precision as well if have yet to do any large amount of clicks to zero a scope . Of course that depends on the gun and how tall of rings you put on it . I always use the lowest set of rings I can get away with , closer to the bore the better .
Things I would have changed: Maybe exclude the rings , let the customer buy their own for their rifle . A.pcp doesn't have enough recoil to warrant such strong rings so I would rather have a lighter set of rings .plus not everyone has a weaver mount , I had to buy the adapters for it which was fine only ten bucks and I knew that going into it .
What others should know: If you not finding the need to put $200 on up glass on your gun go with this brand , don't waste your on the other stuff.Leapers has stepped up their game from ten years ago and far surpassed all the foreign made competition , period.!
Things I liked: I use this for bore cleaner in my marauder .I take the bolt out and clean from the breech to the muzzle so i never take a chance on wrecking the crown .I also use a plastic jag to run the patches thru the only brand that seem s to have plastic jags is Outers and you only see then in a whole cleaning kit which is only about $8 The oil seems to have a quality of turning the grime in the bore soft and easily reemoved with just patches . When my gun starts not acting right i take about 25 patches and put a 1/4" cirle of oil on all but about 3. The first patch or two seems to moisturize the grime and it starts coming out fast .i keep running them thru and they get cleaner as you go the last few i barely oil to finish the job . Then in my particular gun its shoots perfect for about 200 shots then when i think i messed that shot up or maybe that was a bad pellet i know its time to clean it again . Im fortunnate to have a gun that shoots fantastic and very reliably .
Things I would have changed: Larger quanity container for less money .Some people say its the same as type f tranmission fluid .i tend to agree .but am reluctant to change something on a gun that shoots so good. Those of you that have a consistantly accurate airgun know what i mean .
What others should know: If you are fighting flyers especially in a crosman/ benjamin discovery or marauder its more than likely the fact that you have no , little or inconsistant rifling marks on the head . The skirts will always have rifling marks but the heads wont .So if your fighting flyers or for example have 2 hitting at 10 oclock then 2 hitting at lets say 1 oclock then one on bulleye then back at 10 oclock its not you its the lack of rifling . After changing out barrels and thousands of pellets later i discovered it .Im assuming the pellet is sort of leaving the barrel the same way each time . But due to lack of rifling not the same way each time .If you want to see if you have rifling shove a pellet thru from the breech end to the muzzle and out then look at the pellet with a magnifying glass or your cell phone with magnifying glass app. If your fighting flyers thats why.only fix is to get another barrel .Crosmans barrels are really hit and miss ,more miss.ive orderd six at a time trying to get one with good rifling and ended up with really nothing to write home about .discovery barrels are about $18 .marauders are about $30 .try the rifling test youll solve your frustrating problem .the marauder i have that has good rifling on the pellets and is the most accurate air gun ive ever owned . Iuse a softerquality pellet like JSB'S idont shoot cheaper harder pellets like premiers anymore they are more tin i think than lead and i believe those hard pellets worn out thebarrels on two discos ihad
