Got my Beeman Super 12 MK2 / Theoben Rapid (Mk2?)

I got the rig, & it seems to be a blend of MK1 & MK2 features.

For example, the action has the scalloped top corners of the MK2, but the straight cut mag slot & small cocking wear plate (held in with a single screw) of the Mk1.

I still need to determine if it has a reg, or if that's just a bottle connector between action & bottle.

Seems to have the Anschutz trigger, with a single pin thru the action / receiver & 1 allen screw holding it in, along with the safety on the upper right side of the action / stock.

Trigger is very nice, even after recently spoiling my trigger finger with a couple thousand pellets using a brace of Daystate mouse-click electronic triggers.

After picking it up for a little more than the price of some tuned Mrods I've seen sell recently, I'm happy, even if it turns out it's not regged.

20cal H&N 13.58gr pellets at an avg of 963 fps is 29 ft lbs...& Loud, so I haven't been able to shoot it much, yet.

Many thanks to all who have posted & contacted me to educate me on Rapids & their variants...(especially you, Scott) happy.gif

Long ago I posted I liked the look of John Darlings little Rapid 7, & here we are, a while later, & I now have a relative of the little Rapid 7.
