Huben K1 ends Easter early. (Little graphic)April 17 2017 at 12:39 PM

I was finally able to put the Huben to field use.
My son and I went out Easter day to look for those
pesky wabbits. I had loaded the Huben with 34 gr JSB
.22. I've had it jam in the past with them but I thought
it was done doing that. I opened a new tin to keep the magazine
full and it jammed again. Going back to H&N 21 gr. Never have
had an issue with those. Before it quit I did get a nice sized
jack rabbit. First shot dropped it. Never needed the semi feature

Nice having the Semi-Auto for follow up shots, but nicer is a 1-shot kill

Congrats and thank for sharing. Nice having the Semi-Auto for follow up shots, but nicer is a 1-shot kill
Try pushing in the pellets further, or making sure they aren't inserted too far. Maybe one or the other is occuring.
34 gr in the Huben.

I was target shooting with it and had zero jam issues.
Was planning on sticking with the 34's for the whap
factor. Didn't have a jam until I put pellets from
a new tin in it. I had been using a small probe in the
past to seat the pellets a little further in. Kind of a
PITA so I had quit that. The H&N's will be fine.
Certainly is a fun gun to shoot and noticeable improvement's
over my gen 1 Huben.

We've got more coming in too.

In case anyone missed out, we have more arriving shortly.
I like the accuracy with MEGA-THUMP. Add in semi-auto, and woohooo!!!!
Huben shout out

If anyone is on the fence about one of these guns jump off on the
ownership side. Incredible power available or a couple twists of
the power wheel has you shooting in a power saving target mode.
19 shots on a load on the fly magazine. Quiet, well balanced
and just big grins to shoot off a magazine. Fills to 5,000 psi
so no over filling danger from your fill tank.
Grouping is more than adequate for pesting and hunting. Here is
a full magazine at 50 yards...
Nicer...Yes! However, to spoil "Nicer" far too many variables to consider
|April 18 2017, 3:59 PM |
i.e. Wind gusts, movement of target just as one squeezes trigger, a moving target as in Not sitting still Jack Rabbit. RELIABLE, ACCURATE Semi Auto rules IMO.
|April 17 2017, 1:05 PM |
how many fpe was it set at.?
fpe on Huben
|April 17 2017, 1:23 PM |
I had it set to shoot .22 JSB 34 gr at just over 900 fps.
I switched to H&N 21 gr this morning and have it shooting the
same speed. Two clicks on the power adjuster kept it the same
fps range. Should get a few more shots out of it too.
ANY....Jam on a Semi Auto is a Deal Breaker for me. Simply put
|April 18 2017, 2:32 PM |
a RELIABLE Semi Auto is REQUIRED, end of story. I had a FX Revolution one of the very first in the country shooting a High FPS w/18's @ 935 fps and had a LW barrel....had this for six years NEVER a Jam. Only sold because I wanted a .25 Cal Semi Auto....never happened sadly. Should not have sold it. The Huben is documented with many Jams...come on mfg's, give us a RELIABLE Semi Auto in .25 cal. Huben is heavy (ugly IMO)....wish a .25 cal in a platform RELIABLE....would love a platform like the Hummingbird short light weight, quiet, highly accurate and nice looking.

I never had a problem cycling on my first Huben.
This one has only jammed when using the large 34 gr
JSB. When I shoot H&N 21 gr or JSB 18 gr no problem.
I don't recall if I tried the 34's in my first one.
I have a Monsoon that will occasionally not cycle.
Found out that's more the spring needs to be wound
tighter on the magazine to keep up with the semi speed.
Noted "first" Huben, what happened to the first one and why was it replaced or did
|April 19 2017, 12:16 PM |
you sell it? If once refined, IMO, using a Removable magazine, maybe a CF air tube to reduce weight, release it in .25 Cal as the power plant would be ideal and RELIABLE I will truly have an interest.
Gen 1 Huben

Ouch!...says more about the Vender than the gun....What changes are
|April 19 2017, 7:12 PM |
applicable in Gen 2 issue/model?
Gen 2 changes
|April 19 2017, 8:41 PM |
I bought from Joe Brancato this round. Very pleased. Not 100%
sure on all the changes. The shroud is different as well as the
shroud vent hole location. Whatever they did to the trigger is
a vast improvement. Long first stage but a crisp break with reduced
pull pressure. The gun is very pressure adjustable with easy access
to a power wheel and regulator. I run mine just a little lower on
the regulator than Joe suggested. You can crank these up to insane
fps if wanted. Since you've owned a semi you know how fun they can
be to empty a magazine on something.
Yep! A Semi Auto is Simply the very best. Your Huben is a nice
|April 20 2017, 4:05 PM |
Power Plant for a .25 cal. Although HEAVY....almost 10 lbs with scope...Hunting and walking can get old..... However if they release in a RELIABLE ACCURATE config. I guess I could live with No Removable mag. However a semi Auto in .25 w/o a battery/electronics (evanix) is what I seek.....Why can these mfg's see this as a Huge seller....a blow back like the Revolution that is RELIABLE and just as accurate in .25 cal. Oh Well, just a dream! As for .22 cal I will stick with my Hummingbird...light weight Reliable Highly accurate and east slide cocking on lest side/mid gun...no need to remove trigger finger to re-cycle and 6 lbs less than 7.5 lbs with Leupy 11oz 3X9 efr.
I use a sling....
|April 20 2017, 4:56 PM |
...to carry a gun on long field days. Goes around my neck so
it doesn't slide off my shoulder and REALLY helps take the load
off my arm. Gun just swings up to shoot. Even on the Leishy
a sling frees my hands when weight isn't the issue.
Might I inquir what "sling" you are using?....is it of a different config.
|April 20 2017, 6:15 PM |
making it Easy to sling............Still in all nothing trumps LESS Weight. Short and Great swing for moving targets.
