Got this from Mike Melick at the Arkansas show.
This one is a .22
Time was short today but I couldn't resist throwing a couple of shots across the chrony.
I'll get to those numbers in a minute but first let me tell you a little about the gun.
It feels really good and points well.
I don't know why but it reminds me of some of the powder burner carbines that are so popular.
It's just plain fun to shoot.
There isn't much plastic on the XS60C and that was a nice surprise.
The sights are fiber optic with the rear being a bright green and the front a bright orange.
They work great even in low light.
The wood stock is nothing fancy but for a $100 Co2 gun there is nothing wrong with it either.
It's much better than the plastic stocks found on a lot airguns these days.
The bolt functions fine and the pellets are easy to load due to the large opening on top.
There is a little take up on the trigger and then it breaks light and clean.
It has a auto safety.
Now to the numbers.
I just wanted to check the power level with two fresh Co2's so it's not a string just a power check.
Using 14 grain Dasiy wad cutters I got 641 Fps for 12 foot pounds.
Using 21 grain Kodiak's I got 525 Fps for 13 foot pounds.
If accuracy is there (and I'm sure it is) then this will certainly put the hurt on a squirrel.
I like it but I'll have to fight to keep it since my wife has fallen in love with it.
Mike is a great guy to deal with and the Arkansas show would not have been the same without him and Mary.
He keeps the range busy by handing out demo guns and pellets to everyone that walks by.
What better way is there to introduce new people to airguns.
I was lucky enough to score on a 22 XS60 before they were all gone in 22. It's a VERY adjustable rifle. Most welcome is the power adjuster to avoid having to go in and shim or trim the striker spring. The trigger is adjustable for weight of pull, sear engagement, overtravel and can be polished up easily for a sweet match grade pull.
The Chinese only needed to know what this market wanted and, with a few simple and inexpensive design changes, gave us all we could want in a sub $100 rifle. Mile is back home and will have more coming in to make all of you that missed your chance happy.
As an aside, I was lucky enough to get one on the very first QB78's many years ago quality of these fine little guns has really come along.
Thanks, Seth, for a great show. Good job.
