I did a little penetration testing yesterday with different pellets available in our market. The testing for each pellet was done by shooting it from 15 meters using Gamo Shadow on a stack of 50 Business Visiting cards held together by a rubber band. Well none of them made it through the 50 cards and its too much to expect from an Airgun specially considering its a 16 fpe category airgun.

I have mentioned two values for each of the 3 shots I took and then average value for the 3 shots taken. The two values are penetration (the card number on which the pellet was found) and impact (the number of cards that got at-least a tear on them due to impact, the indent didn't count)

The first shot had the least penetration for all pellets as on first shot the cards bundle was tight and firm but with every shot the bundle started opening up and the penetration would increase but since a fresh stack for used for each kind of pellet, the benefit / variation remains same for all kinds of pellets used.

Yesturday I tried testing the limits of my Gamo Shadow using H&N ftt pellets..
The below group was achieved from 60 meters, self measured, benched position and total number of shots was 10...
How much more accuracy can you expect from a 16fpe airgun...

Asalam o Alaikum, sorry guys I have not made a post recently on the club...been a little tied up...Anyhow I have made so modifications in my Gamo Shadow...( only recommended for expert level airgunners at your own risk).. The first set of changes were made in the trigger assembly. All contact points of the trigger mechanism were polished. Next the adjustment screw was replaced with a slightly longer one... Finding a 2.5 mm diameter screw was a little diffcult but Alhumdulillah eventually managed to do so.. this longer screw allowed me to decrease the second stage of the trigger. Now this is a dangerous bit...sometimes the trigger becomes so light that as you load the airgun, the sear is released and the gun shoots... Sometimes the gun would not lock and load...at this point you need to loosen the screw a bit... Secondly I played around with the spring and piston....I polished the piston a bit, greased entire airgun. The guide rod in New shadows is polymer but the head is metal. I fixed a polymer head on top on the metal head which provided about 2.5mm of shimming in the spring...
Results: The trigger is a lot smoother and my gun was previously shooting at 700 fps with H&N ftt pellets. Now it's shooting at an average of 733 fps with some shots even touching 750 fps which makes it into a 17.5 fpe gun from a 12 fps gun... Drastic change and improvement....
