Took the Plunge! (broke the bank)

16 posts in this topic

I still can't believe I did this. Two .25 cal airguns in as many weeks. The first was a Sumatra 2500 500cc, and now a Rapid. Proof that there is NO cure for this addiction. :signbummer8tl:Picture113.jpg

you will LOVE your rapid .25... I cant shoot mine enough. If you are willing to part with it for a bit, I would highly suggest sending it off to one of the tuners (Allan Zasadny) to have him go through it and set it up exactly they way you like it. I ordered mine and had it sent directly to him for the works. Mine is set up to shoot 31gr Kodiaks at about 915 for for 3 mags (36 shots) off a 400 cc bottle. Thats about 58 ft/lbs of energy, enough for some clean kils on rabbit, possum, squirrel type animals out to around 100 yards if you can place the pellet. Mine took a few hundred to break in but now it shoots 12 shots in a single hole at 25 yards. Enjoy yours!!! How do you have it set up now, what kind of glass, ammo, etc?

Upon looking closer at your pics, I see you already have Allan Z's quick fill on the bottle and what looks to be a 500cc tank. Way to go. What are the specifics on the rifle?

A17 and SoCalThanks, I love this thing. It has already been gone through by Allan Z and it has Swifts 220 valve and one of his bolt handle. Here are some chrono numbers that Rick Petrson took before he sold me the gun. As for glass, Im waiting for a weaver rail that I ordered. Gonna do some scope switching and either put a MTC Viper 6x24x56 30mm on it or a Leupold MK4 8.5x25 milldot 30mm on it. This is how it's set up now.Rapid MK2 .25 with Swift220 Valve, 500cc Bottle 1/31/2009 Kodiak FPS FPE 1 30.36 931 58.4 Start at 3,400 PSI 2 30.36 930 58.3 40-shot string 3 30.36 930 58.3 4 30.36 938 59.3 5 30.36 941 59.7 6 30.36 942 59.9 7 30.36 945 60.2 8 30.36 946 60.4 9 30.36 946 60.4 10 30.36 941 59.7 11 30.36 943 59.9 12 30.36 943 59.9 13 30.36 940 59.6 14 30.36 939 59.5 15 30.36 936 59.1 16 30.36 933 58.7 17 30.36 930 58.3 18 30.36 928 58.1 19 30.36 930 58.3 20 30.36 926 57.8 21 30.36 923 57.4 22 30.36 928 58.1 23 30.36 920 57.1 24 30.36 918 56.8 25 30.36 914 56.3 26 30.36 911 56.0 27 30.36 908 55.6 28 30.36 902 54.9 29 30.36 903 55.0 30 30.36 907 55.4 31 30.36 903 54.9 32 30.36 897 54.3 33 30.36 899 54.5 34 30.36 892 53.7 35 30.36 886 52.9 36 30.36 882 52.4 37 30.36 875 51.6 38 30.36 875 51.7 39 30.36 868 50.9 40 30.36 865 50.5 At about 1,850 PSI on shot 40
