THE FRAME: For the frame of the air rifle, I chose to do something different from my usual. Something very different. I wanted to DIP my gun. As in Hydro Dip it which I've always considered but never wanted to get into the hassle that I created in my head...lol. This kit is from WWW.MYDIPKIT.COM and when I first saw it, I knew it was the pattern I WANTED! No other "lurkin" necessary. A good buddy of mine offered to do the DIP for me which was fantastic because he was already set up to do them. Talking to my buddy Southern Gunner, he informed me that the DipKit had arrived and that the pattern was even more gorgeous in person that on the website. He was so excited about MY pattern that he asked if he could dip his rifles in it. Of course I told him yes. But only after he 1st finished my gun.....lol. A big shout out to MYDIPKT for a prompt delivery and a great product. I couldn't be happier. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM for your next airgun project/project.
RAI FRAME PRIMED and CURING:
I recently had a chance to take the rifle out for some field performance and manage to catch this Wascally Critter right at 50 yards out. He gave me all the opportunity I needed to line up the crosshairs and let the 55 gr N.S.A. (Nielsen Specialty Ammo) rip at 785 fps/ 75.2 FPE (old tune) and find its mark. It was a PERFECT heart shot through both shoulders.
More tuning and testing to come so make sure you stay TUNED!
