Well it has arrived..



Got it all unpacked



Got the silencer on it and the rear sight undone





BUT how small is the hex screw head...



Looks like I am going to the hardware store tomorrow to find one. Th esmallest i have is 1.5mm and it appears this is a 0.05" (1.27mm).

I am really surprised at how light it is, and also how crappy that scope is.

Scope is throw out, good kids toy. I have found a small torqx driver from my tool kit works really well on the breech screw, let's you get more torque on it and doesn't burr.

Yea, bummer I don't have any of those in my kit.

It'll continue....

They are 1.27mm.
I use a clamp to hold a bit of pressure down on the breech to help avoid rounding out the tiny head when tightening it up.

When you get it out you could file a flat groove in it so you can use a flat head screw driver. Make sure you smooth off any rough edges too. I polished the breech end of the barrel to remove any rough bits that the pellet can catch on. It made the pellets go in nicer.

That sounds like a great idea, I cannot get over how small that head is.

Here is a quite update from last night.

And what raizer said is good advice, helped me. It takes all the pressure off the screw when fitting.

Went to bunnings and got a big set of hex keys and torx drivers. Should be sorted now.

What would peoples views be on a scope like this one for the 2250b?

Ideally i want something light and not to bulky.

I prefer more mag than 4 but each to thier own in that debate. The leapers bug buster is a nice compact scope and you should be able to get one in Nz for a reasonable price.

Thanks Mintie just googled that one. That sounds pretty good. 3-9 would be ideal I think.

Has anyone ordered from Optics planet before or recommend any other website?

Just saw that straight shooters have it for $170

You can't legally export optics from the states. Nzhunter.com used to sell the leapers. If not then have a look on aliexpress but it will take a while to get to you.
