Mine came yesterday. Looks a lot like the .177 CFXs we've had in the US, but the rolling loading block on mine is not polished, the butt pad is a different design, and it says on the receiver that it makes 1200 fps w/ PBA pellets, 1000 fps with lead. Obviously, that's a receiver that was meant for a .177 rifle at some point.
Rich's trigger, muzzle brake and loading port lever came an hour after the rifle; they are all installed and we're trying (and trying) to make the trigger work w/o dragging. Had the same problem w/ my .177 CFX trigger insert.

Hard to put it in the right location, and it was dragging down across the back of the trigger housing. Took a few hours puzzling, assembling & v.v., and Joe K's touch, but it's fine now. After about a hundred pellets, it's at 13 fpe but seems to be climbing. This is with nothing done deeper than the Rich from Mich trigger insert.
The loading port has a burr or something; it is as difficult as a new B40 to load. But it has to be disassembled to deburr, and if I'm going to do that, I might as well put in the SuperTune kit at the same time. Right, Rich?
A check will probably be in the mail this week. It's just the way these things seem to go.
Rich, how come the muzzle brake exit hole got bigger? The one for my .177 CFX was about 7.2mm diameter, the one for the .22 is 14.5mm---give or take. Any functional reason for the change? Also, the trigger pin had to be reduced and polished for the bushing to fit. But all is well now.
Yes sometimes that spring is a bear to get in the correcxt position so it will not rub the trigger, the exit hole was just from a different batch of brakes and makes no difference. I made some with a bigger hole to make sure there is no clipping of the pellet when fired.
Set up the garage-to-woodpile range after work today. It is 20 yards; I sit in a lawn chair with my feet on an upside-down bucket and rest my forearm hand on my knee. It's not bench resting by any means and my pulse shows plainly in the scope.
The Pyramyd .22 CFXs come with a 4x32 Gamo scope. It is better than I expected. The more I think about springer dynamics, the more I like the idea of minimal scopes, and this one fits the bill. Rich's trigger insert, which we installed yesterday, makes it a true 2-stage with maybe 1-lb let-off. It is VERY light, probably too light for the woods. Every shot today surprised me when it discharged.
So I opened a tin of Wolverines and spent maybe 20 shots getting the scope set, then shot the target that is (I hope) attached. The random shots in the bull and around the edges are from an earlier B20 and B40 tune-up session; what I shot with the CFX is where the lines cross at 12 o'clock above the bull. That's 5 shots through that hole. Amazing, given that I'm no contest shooter and it was a very casual shooting setup.
FWIW, the .22 CFX is quieter than the .177. The .177 has Rich's small-hole MB and the SuperTune kit, while the .22 has stock innards and the large-hole MB. They're both really great airguns, but on this forum I know I'm preaching to the choir.
