Default ar 20

Exactly didn`t monitor but I seem to get around 100 -125 ,but when I get the target turret for nikko from Terry Hart I will set up the trajectory dials and will have an exact idea ,Did`nt understood in the begining or the forum someone mentioned that it`s better to be filled at 200 bar max , I don`t wish to damage anything but it is stated that it`s rated for 300 bar with the steel cylinder.

Default Warning on filling these to 300bar

I know someone who filled his AR20 to 300 bar....... but the shop did replace the action for him when it locked up, as it seems there is no way to evacuate air from the regulator !

Default A caution for North American readers

I just bought one of these in Canada (coming via Umarex USA). My dealer assured me that it would be at 780FPS not the 560FPS listed in the American marketing materials. It actually chronographed at 626fps with light RWS Hobby 7.0 grain pellets. I spoke to a technician at Umarex USA about the irritation of their marketing a FT gun that doesn't shoot at FT velocities. He sent me a schematic in German for the gun ( In the corner of the diagram is a note in English that the components to replace are:
780 fps-
466.61 Regulator
466.201.35.1 Mainspring
1020 fps -
466.62 Regulator
466.201.35.1 Mainspring
466.29.01.1 Pin

After a ten day wait the technician at Umarex USA tells me the correct parts have been ordered. If you're thinking of buying one of these in Canada or the USA be sure to verify that it is actually set up for FT velocities.
