My CFX has been "Riched" -- 40 yard target

Rich from Mich has romanced by CFX Royal. Above are 5 shots at 40 yards (shot by Rich).

The cocking is now smooth as silk on silk. No creaks or groans, just "snick" at end end when it latches.

The breech opens with a flick of the thumb now and it's easier to load pellets (what the heck does he do to the loading "bowl"?)

The GTX trigger now has a very distinct wall at the beginning of the second stage, and when it breaks, the CFX goes "Twonk!" No longer does it sound like a box of loose parts. Rich also fitted one of his neato muzzle breaks.

With a snowstorm screaming in on us yesterday afternoon, I only got two shots for accuracy before I had to quit. Both went through the same hole at 13 yards (I don't mean sorta the same hole, I mean the SAME hole.)

My brief initial impression is that Rich does very nice work.

You'll be hearing more about this gun when it is sane to shoot again.

He did mine - Magic - now I need to find it's "favorite" pellet.

He did mine as well, it is like a new / different rifle now. I still have to play with it enough to find the pellets it likes best now. I have found that it does not like CP lites. hehe!

I'm ordering a bunch of different types, so I can start to process...... Anyone have a suggestion on the best "top 5" pellets to start out trying? I'd hate to waste loads of time.
