Standard Crosman Trigger

The famous, rather the infamous Crosman Trigger

If you read any customer reviews of Crosman spring and nitro piston guns like the Nitro Venom, you’ll find that they all may have good things to say about the gun, but very few if any sing the praises of the their triggers. They are promoted as “two stage adjustable” triggers which will really depends …

Quattro Trigger Tension Adjustment

Understanding the Quattro Trigger Adjustments

We’re going to spend a little bit of time looking at how to adjust a few common triggers. The trigger is the shooter’s connection to their gun. Provided the rest of the gun is inherently accurate, the trigger pull may be the most critical point to achieving repeatable accuracy. Hey, my trigger’s …

Rick shooting the adjusted Marauder on the range

Adjusted .25 Marauder and a windy day on the range.

I know I left you all hanging with the last article and frankly that’s part of the fun of writing these blog posts. In this part 2 we’ll take a look at how our newly adjusted .25 cal Synthetic Marauder did on the range. My hope was to be able to stretch things out to 50 yards. But, I had some serious …

Marauder .25 Cal Checking the Tape!

Marauder .25 Cal after a little TLC

Gamo Silent Cat - 5 Shots at 20 yards - 10.3 grain JSB Heavies - .353" CTC

Gamo Silent Cat w/ Hawke Scope – 20 yard groups

In our last article about the Gamo Silent Cat we found that it was doing pretty darn well at 10 yards with the 10.3 Grain JSB Heavy pellets. So well in fact that I was inclined to replace the sub-par scope with a Hawke 3-9×40 AO Sport HD and a set of Hawke Match Grade 11mm rings. It did not take …

Customer service exists to service customers

As I mentioned in the previous article on Customer Service, I used to just send defective sample products back for a complete replacement. But, after enough of the replacements also exhibited issues, some the same, some different, I changed my process and started dealing directly with the manufacturer’s …

Example of end user custom seal and "airgun tune" that went terribly wrong...

What to do when things go terribly wrong?

If you were to come hang out with me for a couple of days here in Lake Havasu City (anyone’s welcome to come over by the way!), you’d see that I wear a lot of hats. Here’s a short list: I review guns for various airgun related companies, I consult on quality control and customer service, I work …
