Shortened Gladiator MkII

The new Gladiator and Verminator ("Mk2") models are based on the Royale/Elite action block, but are different enough to warrant their own section.

Shortened Gladiator MkII

Postby Glad2Have1 on Sat Jul 28, 2012 4:52 pm

Has anyone shortened their Glad II by reducing the barrel & shroud length, and changing the front air tube? I don't mean as short as the Verminators, but somewhere in-between. Looking to make it a bit more manageable for carry hunting. What velocity reduction can I expect to get with no other adjustments or changes?
TIA :!:

Heya man... No replies in two yearst huh? this does seem to be a trend on this forum... considered the same on my Glad mk2 as well but just wasnt finding it cost effective. Guess its a better option to sticl with this rifle for bench rest and get a Vermi to carry around ...

I didnt shorten it, but i built baffles and hair curlers into the empty space at the end of the shroud and turned it into a silencer. Works brilliantly.
