Marauders coming… AR6 says goodbye   Leave a comment

After sending the AR6 to Pyramid Air, them testing it and finding nothing wrong, sending the rifle back, I received the rifle and fired some test shots. I no longer hear the air leaking from the fill valve on the AR6 and it fired the pellets without issues.

The buyer of the rifle decided to send a rifle case with the money order. I received the case last Friday afternoon. Friday evening I boxed everything in preparation for shipping Saturday.

Saturday morning I ran by the bank and put money order in. I took the rifle over to USPS and shipped it off. I received a delivery confirmation number and began the small journey back home. Once home, it was time to call Jim at Precision Airguns to order a .177 Marauder.

Currently I have two Marauders on order. The first is from Airguns of Arizona in .22 caliber. The .22 Marauder will be tuned to shoot heaver pellets and used for hunting. The second Marauder is in .177 caliber and will be used for field target (FT) shooting and the starlings or other bird pests that are around the farm. However, it will be mainly for FT shooting.

So after arriving at home, I called Jim at Precision Airguns and ordered a .177 Marauder. Jim is a delight to do business with and was very courteous on the phone. He asked what the rifle’s main purpose was for and discussed a bit about FT matches. He offered some advise to get started in FT shooting regarding equipment and the class. Jim stated the rifle will ship out today (3-22-2010) via UPS.

The next steps for the .177 Marauder are to purchase some pellets, find a chrony to use, and setup the Marauder for the hunter class. I currently do not have any .177 pellets, but those are easy to find.

When will the Airguns of Arizona (AoA) .22 Marauder arrive? I was told by a representative at AoA it could be two weeks or it could be four weeks. AoA was not sure when it would come in. In the meantime, I will have the .177 to keep me busy.

Evanix AR6 on the way back   Leave a comment

Pyramyd Air called me back. The gentleman from Pyramyd states the seals needed to be seated by the pressurized air. They filled the gun up to 3000 psi and left it for three days. After three days it did not move at all. He stated it seems them filling the gun up seated the seals.

I was encouraged to leave the gun pressurized with a higher pressure and not to shoot the gun all the way down. This will allow the seals to become loose again. I only filled the gun to 180 bar (2610 psi) as that seemed to be what it shot best at. Well, a lesson learned.

It would seem that the AR6 was okay the entire time, but because I am not familiar with the inter workings I thought there was a problem.

They will be shipping the gun back tomorrow and it should arrive in a few days.

Evanix AR6 going back to Pyramyd Air….   Leave a comment

It slipped my mind that the rifle is still under warranty. Upon contacting Pyramyd yesterday and conversing with them over the issue, which was very short, I was issued a RMA. The individual stated I was to ship the action back to them, they would repair the problem and return the rifle action back within a max of ten days.

The AR6 was boxed up last night and my wife will ship out today. I will track the shipment next week and make sure they receive the shipment.

Blessings,
Jeff

Evanix AR6 Valve leaking   Leave a comment

Well, a few days ago I noticed when I happen to have the input valve near my head I heard the hissing sound of air. The air is slowly leaking out of the air chamber now.

I have asked for help on a wonderful forum, Adventures in Airguns forum (here).

In doing some searching, I found the following “parts diagram” on another forum.

Perhaps, with help, I can figure out how to fix it.

The little beast….   1 comment

When I purchased this airgun 9/2009, I only looked at how powerful it was. I did not look at anything else. Well, time has now shown me there are other things one needs to consider before purchasing a quality airgun.

However, my choice has proven to be a good choice. Not a great choice, mind you, but a good one.

Here is a picture of “the little beast” as I have come to call it.

AR6 Hunting Master - f

Here is a picture before I removed the camo tape.

Evanix AR6

This gun produces approx. 60+ fpe and is a true hunting gun. Currently I am using 32.4 grain Eun Jin pellets and they produce over 60 foot pounds of energy.

Why “little beast” one may ask? Simple. Because when the Jack Haley .457 arrives, it will rightfully claim the name “the beast!”
