A couple days ago I switched the gun back to .22 cal and put the Beeman scope back on it. I zeroed it in in 6 shots for about 30 feet then got it pretty close at 35 yards. Yesterday I caught 2 tree rats in my yard.
First shot I took at the rodent who was about 28 yards away and up about 10 degrees smacked him dead on the spot. Second rat was up about 70 feet in a tree 10 yards away and hit him with a Crow Mag that knocked him clean out of the tree but when he hit the ground he ran right through my fence and away, very unfortunate. But I noticed the gun was shooting much smoother and much more quiet then I remembered. So after work I played around with targets and did exceptional at 30 feet then good at 25 yards and 2 1/4 bulls-eyes at 35 yards.

This morning I see another rodent at the 28 yard tree in my back yard so I grabbed an FTS double gold fired one shot and he was free falling for Dowser to catch. I guess the rat was just bad injured as Dowser let out some yelps before I saw him come out of the bush with the dead rat.

So I still notice the gun is far more agreeable than it was, could the heavier Leapers scope be the problem or did it just suddenly break in?
The power still seems to be ok and I don't hear a twang when I shoot so I think the spring is still intact. What else could be going on?

Long winded I know but hey I am bored and excited about my new purchase.

Springers always seem to get better the more you shoot them. The triggers seem to get smoother as surfaces wear, springs themselves go through a break-in period, and seals sometimes need to wear-in a bit to fit the compression tube a little better as well as excessive lubes burn off and stop dieseling.

But if you get one professionally tuned or learn how to take one apart, clean out the cheaper factory lubes, sand out and deburr the metal and metal to metal surfaces, cocking linkages and other contact points, put in a higher quality Jim Macarri spring, guide and seals kit along with the proper amount of higher quality lubes, learn to take the trigger apart, remove bad lubes, stone out bad surfaces or smooth contact points and put back together......you will be spoiled from that point forward, lol.

Actually I am very mechanically inclined. I rebuilt an old J.C Higgins Sears .22 my grandma gave me years ago. Replacing parts and polishing the whole assembly. It was really nothing to do.

I would like to find some good documentation including detail exploded views of the gun works. If you know of any links let me know.
