Just got this Fx Revolution last week and finally had a chance to check it out in the backyard 'range".When I got it from AOA they included a chrony showing it was shooting 16g JSBs at 920 - 940fp.I tried several different pellets and it seemed to like them all. Attached are the results at 27 yard from the muzzle. Keep in mind these are all 12 shot groups (except the first one is 9). I had a front sand bag but the back of the rifle was floating so Im sure if I put it on a real rest it would do even better.The first group I only loaded 9 in the magazine and I had two FTFs. After that will full magazines I had no issues at all.This baby is going to be fun!I just need to figure out how to put a sling on it.Attached File  revo.jpg   24.01KB   22 downloadsAttached File  Target.jpg   23.04KB   21 downloads

I'm very jealous, a Monsoon or Revolution is high on my wish list. Looks like it is shooting pretty good too, have fun!

congrats on the new FX. Maybe it has a preference for those 14.3 gr JSB? Seems like fewer fliers with those.

Yeah - strange but it seems to like the lighter pellets.

The guns don't have a predictable preference for pellets. If they did we'd all pick the right pellets the first time.

I love the gun. My Revolution only likes the Crosman 14.3 Hollow Point. Your right ...only the light pellets. Mine also has a hic-cup once in a while. It will blow the bolt back but will not pick up a pellet. You just shoot air and have to charge it by hand. Of course it mostly happens when you need that second shot quick.I have started to shot *trap* with my Disco. I hit four the first time out. (out of 25 birds) That is loads of fun. I removed the scope and just looked down the barrel. I keep both eyes open anyways.

Shooting trap? Hmmm that does sound like fun. ...especially with my revo. I have a little 18 x 12" square of that 2x2 wire mesh used for concrete reinforcement staked in down range. I like to clothes pin unused packs of ketchup and taco sauce to it and pop yhe sauce, yhen blast the clothes pin into splinters. Its also fun to shoot those little solid plastic green army men. Its best to paint them with some flourescent layout paint or they can just about disappear at 10 yards. Daisy makes little clay targets but theyre kinda messy so I use wheat thins crackers or whatever's on sale. I pivked up some molds of somekind , aybe candy or soap or something. Been meaning to freeze up some ice molds for the firing squad. OH, bottle caps are fun when sitting on the ground, right side up, like when on bottle. Aim just a tiny bit short so when hit, they take off flying.

Oops, ive gone off topic a bit but yes, FX REVOLUTION, very fun new toy for me too. I think I bought my last air rifle.

As long as you pickup anything you're shooting when you're done.

My rifle came with a scope; I would like to get maybe a red dot scope because at the ranges I shoot I don't need the larger scope. I am joining a gun club I belonged to years ago.My wife wants to use a bow. That Revolution sounds real nice.
