    I've looked and checked and it does seem credible.



    On a knee jerk response I almost took my dentist money for his month and bought one.



    I'm still weighing it against saving my pennies for something I could compete with in the 20 Ft lb class competition.



    I should put a link up to that sight here some place, you know? They always seem to have something good going on!



    Thanks for the link, Brother!

    Okay, 07condor22, fair warning, you might not want to answer the phone, pull down the shades, keep a low profile and stay away from any open windows for a while. affraid My wife will probably be "gunning" for you!

    My dentist might be bringing up the rear too since I took his money for this month!

    Let's see scratch . . .anyone else I can blame? Don't guess so (not and get away with it!)

    So, tag! It's YOUR fault for pasting that dad burn good deal of a link!

    I bought it, or, I bought one of them. Total price was $103 and some pocket change.

    I don't have a real springer in my herd and I don't have a .177 caliber either. Umm, no, that's not true . . .

    I do now! On both counts!

    Well, I will when it gets here.

    Yea, yea, I'll share what it's like and all that when it gets here.

    On a serious note, I did tell the other half, AKA The-Ways-and-Means-Committee, about it. And we've figured that it will be cheaper to just pull the last three of my snagle teeth from the top and be done with it and thereby spend less.

    Talk about rationalizing a purchase! lol!

    Ruger Air Magnum .177 Video

    Post by Squirrel on Fri Aug 05, 2011 12:50 pm

    Being the lazy sort I am, and also being the curious sort I am, I had gone to Pyramid Air to check out what would be the heaviest pellet I could shoot in this new (to me) Refurb Ruger Air Magnum .177 with 4x32 Scope and that's when the curious part of me found the pop up for a chat box at PA.

    Wow, never seen that one before. So, to double inform you in this post, do check out the chat box: You don't know who you'll get to chat with!

    I got to chat with Rick Eustler of http://www.airgunweb.com! Talk about a piece of luck! You can't hope to get better caliber people when you work with PA, can you? You just never know!

    Anyway, after a chat, I found a piece Rick had done in a video. Check out the below:


    Main, I got really lucky! First the deal listed by 07condor22, then the cost of the air gun, then the great link at PA, then a chat with Rick at PA then the great video to share here! Man!

    OUT AIRGUN STANDING!

    Makes me want to dance a jig!

    Well, I got to shoot the Ruger today! Shot a few out in the back range and, I must say, even without the scope I was impressed. It doesn't have the same kind of recoil a Nitro Piston does---might be because it's a true springer, but, I gotta say, I like it.

    It shoots accurately. I just adjusted the iron sights on it within a few shots and found that it's actually easier to take the shot with it than it is for my Walther Falcon Hunter .22. Less of a recoil.

    The scope that comes with it, as everyone has said, to me, is way below par.

    It might be because I'm spoiled with better scopes.

    Funny thing is I'd ordered a Power Class 8-32x56 adjustable focus AO and it came in at the same time the pellets for the .177 did. Wow, never had one that powerful in magnification and I really like it. I only have to figure out which of my herd gets the better scope. Looking through one makes the other seem like less than a toy.

    But too, I've never looked through a 3x40 before. It's almost like not having a scope to me.

    But for right now, this is all I have to report on it.

    Lastly, I don't like the safety on it. I'm afraid of breaking it. Plastic and seems as if it will come out if I pull too hard. I'll have to look at this closer.

    Nevertheless, I've been down in the dumps trying to shake off a bug or something the past few days and as soon as I get over it I'll be back out there getting it all lined out for my buddy to shoot with me plinking in the back yard.
