Tuning a Gladi8or

Two types known, the "DA" or "Double Air" and the "PA" or "Pump Action" (a.k.a. FX Exterminator). Lots of air (500cc minimum), and the same biathlon style sidelever action as the Cutlas. Also known as Logun Gladi8tor.

I have a Gunpower Storm and therefore use the Talon site, I have been reading recent posts on there about how easy it is to go supersonic, BUT, how impossible it is to do this and retain any degree of accuracy.


my modified 5,5mm gladiator shoots 18.1 grain exterminator pellets at 415m/s and have a grouping of 40mm dia at 100m , when i use a 25grain exterminator pellet I drop to 396m/s but accuracy improves to 30mm diam on 100m
If i try to shoot any thing lighter than 18grain then yes my accuracy goes for a ball of chalk but i can get some very impressive results from my crony but it is not what i am going after .
I use gladiator for hunting and get better use out of a heavier pellet

why these 400+ms?in calm day this rifle could constantly shoot subinch groups at 100m and take 5+kg jack rabbis at far beyond 125m with speed of 290-300ms and JSB 18gr.and i mean chest,not headshots.
