Hi there as im pretty new to FX airguns overall i would love to aske a few questions regarding this fine rifle i have just purchased.

I bought it on friday second hand from my local Gunshop.. it is uK spec at 12ft lbs in .22

Now i don't know why others have looked at or purchased this rifle , i did because i love the idea of not taking charging kit with me, the freedom of a good springer with the ease of shooting of a pcp.
I think they have got this down very well with the Indy.. in My 12ftlbs spec im getting roughly 24 shots at full power * mind you i don't have power setting so its same all the way through * lovely to shoot and at range was zeroed at 35 mtrs with about 30 shots.. such a nice shooter and from first pump to last there is no change in effort..

Having had hw100s for a few years it was a leap of faith and i am glad i have done it..

Now heres to my questions.. on what to lube on rifle and not to lube ive no scooby doo, yes the barrel but im after a shroud for it anyhow.. i mean anything i should be looking at regarding the pump and the cocking linkage.. do i oil do i need to grease where the cocking internals are.. every thing needs looking after and some advice from you FX users to a new man on the scene would be greatly recieved..
Thank you .

Hi Tbone,

I have just ordered mine and have started another thread regarding this. Unfortunately I cannot answer your technical queries but if you are still shooting the Independence I'd be up for swapping experiences. I'm surprised no one has replied to your thread :lol:

Did you ever get your shroud sorted? And how are you finding the rifle to live with?

ATB, Tom
