Stubby Extreme Draws First Blood

13 posts in this topic

It was starting to get dark. 31 yards with a Kodiak/Cuda 5.51mm 22.14 gr. It arrived 4 hours ago.This may be the coolest gun or airgun I have owned and I have owned a lot (40 something). The stock is extremely comfortable to hold and is rock solid. Scope sight picture is perfect positioning. My 30 yard sight-in group rivaled my Condor (24" LW barrel) with Kodiaks. I tossed a spare 6-24x scope on there until I make up my mind on scopes. It is quieter w/o a shroud on it than what I expected (under the receiver end cap is a threaded bushing on the 12" barrel for putting shroud on if you want it). He never knew he had been hit.Stubby Extreme model http://www.rlairgunsupply.com/cart/catalog...Shop-131-1.htmlStubby001web.jpgStubbyFBweb.jpg

Let me measure it up and then edit this.... It is light compared to the Condor or Marauder with the Hawke Tacticals....27.5" long2.5" wide (tank is the widest)8" high exlcuding scope and scope mountgun is 6 lbs 8 ozs (stock is 1 lb 10 ozs of that and a stock Talon (5.25) loses a few parts for the stock like grip, trigger guard, etc)scope is 19 ozsForgot to add: The shroud they designed for it I am testing adds 3-3/4" to the length. Its a 3 baffled shroud. THe threaded bushing is on the barrel so the end cap comes off.This thing is balanced perfectly w/o the nose-heavy tendency the front tank designs have.

Thanks, they list 4 models but don't give a lot of information on the differences between each one; they need to list better specs for each model.

Ok, I got it, but I still think they could put a little bit more information and word it better for each gun....lol Talon Tunes sells one but they want $1100 and it doesn't look as good as yours......lol

LOL - you need to try one of these.... It is steady as a rock shooting it standing up and I could hold it up all day. My Condor and Marauder kill me after a few shots standing so they tout bipods and I shoot them mainly from my backyard bench rest or off of a car or something. Now I can sneak around next a tree or even off hand. It is a huge difference.

What do you think the max effective range is? Sure just box yours up and I will give it a try....lol

Now I understand why VarmintAir loves that PRod. Stubby Extreme combines PRod accuracy and lightness with Condor power.

Well at 980 fps and 45 fpe for a 21.14 Kodiak in the 22 barrel I have Its the same as the Condor (over 100 yards 21 fpe a @ 100 yards with a BC of .036). I just bought a gun vise to test it at varying distances and plan on going out to 100 yards at my club gun range.

TT is outrageous - enough said. The R&L shroud on my Condor is as effective and half the price.
