Nice review although the power problem you had was frustrating but glad you got it sorted. I bought one of these with the walnut stock "Striker X" .25 a few months ago. Chronoed at the shop useing marksman pellets at 11.2ftlb and has since gone up to 11.3ftlb. I bought 1000 Marksman no3 pellets (it seems everyone you speak to who has owned this gun recommends these ), and found the weights on my pellet scales to average 19.2 grains with only a small variance. Fitted with a red dot scope it is great fun to shoot. I find the trigger a bit creepy so will be fitting a WW HST trigger upgrade shortly.
mmm im liking .25 so far i have built a .25 custom ultra for my rat and feral work and it is doing a VERY fine job....i can link anyone to my build thread on another forum if interested pm me.

I ordered the trigger from Will yesterday, so hopefully it will be here shortly. Once it is done I will give you an update.
Fast delivery or what, trigger arrived barely 24hrs after ordering. It is already fitted as it was so simple to do with easy instructions supplied and once done it has transformed it from a creepy trigger to a proper light crisp 2 stage unit. Anyone who has a Striker I strongly suggest fitting one of these units http://www.woodfield-gcp.co.uk/a-custom-parts.htm
I have only read good things about the Striker in General straight from the box a good rifle (for the price), there is some intresting tuning kits available as well, delrin top hats and guides, XTitan springs etc, bought as a kit really helps take a lot of the Twang out and makes for a very tight, flexible hunting tool . I have seriously considered the .22 for a hunting springer as I mainly have CO2 at present.
