and it might not. Mine has shown it needs a bit of barrel support to shoot well. An aluminum bbl band is in the works.
All in all, I'd rather have a .22 cal MK3 to go with my .177 MK3, but that purchase will have to wait for a while.

WOW Shocked

That is pretty sad when you have to use a piece of tap on that expensive of a gun to get it to group, I truly hope that a better fix can be done to solve this problem.

What? Everyone knows you have to tape a Rapid's barrel before they shoot well.
Sheesh, this board really is a bunch of Theoben homers Laughing

Hi Mike!

What the........... I might be assuming too much here but I think you're a cool guy and all so here goes:

It looks as though there may be some excess residual packing tape from shipping affecting accuracy......... Embarassed

Now between me and you certainly we share enough common ground for some lighthearted humor? Please don't shoot me! Razz

I am shocked at this, especially after seeing the rigidity of the barrel setup though.........who would have thought? I don't know what else to say? Did you try shooting it with the shroud removed completely? Looks like adverse torque but not consistant?

I eliminated this on mine, as well as the end cap/baffle issue. Good luck with yours. I got all I can get my simple head around.

Thanks,
SteveK

No problems. This gun is performing exactly the way I expected it might when I ordered it.
Yeah, I was hoping for better, but didn't expect it.

Chip and Gordon are capable of modding the barrel retaining screw layout to reliably support a floated barrel, but I had always planned to go the barrel band route if my Wolf didn't want to play nice.

So why didn't I just buy an AZ Rapid? Because no way no how am I owning a 48" long air gun.

Mike

Just shows you it doesn't matter if it is a Rapid, Airwolf, Logan MK II etc.... (all top notch guns BTW) there is no guarentee that everyone of these fine guns are perfect when they arrive.

Black tape is know to absorb more vibration then packing tape .
also
did you use a spacer ,i think i can see one in your pic
a hard type foam works best
if its vibration pull out the spring loaded baffles and retest .
