have to say i was sitting down resting gun on knee and using .20g bb`s for the target pratice so there was swaying aswell

TBH, that comment was only half serious.

 

It's definately decent enough and you might find it is better at longer ranges using heavier ammo.

 

Be interesting to run it through a chrono and see what how consistant it is for power.

Very nice indeed although im not sure on the colour of the flashhider, but at least you get one with this model.

You seem to be the only person on the planet with one of these, i hope your going to do a proper review!

Any ideas on the actual FPS? can this be adjusted?

How many shots did you fire at the target? any complete misses?

But i would expect far better accuracy for around 30m!

hi m8 the flashider is not really that colour the flash on the cam seems to made it lighter but its a fraction of diffenece from the barrel

No one answered him! lol, I'm also interested in fps, and if it has some type of flow regulator. Personally I'd stick a silencer on it, I bet a foam filled one will make it deadly quiet.

judging what my maruzen l96 can hit and its shooting tad under six the star aw338 is falling about 4 to 5 meters short of it , i`ll have to wait to get it chrono`d i will be trying different gas to get the best results as state on stars web site using top gas it was appox 520 to 580 but star have say only use 134a gas which brings it down to 380 i do see star have made a high flow regulator but i dont know if my mag has already got this one and is selling as spares but watch this space

500 quid = $1,014  :mellow:

 

Didn't Star's website say "recommended price $645"?

 

It does but we have a quaint habit here in the UK of getting shafted with tax; in this case VAT which accounts for 14.9% of retail price, in this case about $150.00.

 

I've bought quite a lot from Z1 and they are normally very competitive except this time they don't need to compete with anybody. :rolleyes:

Eh?

 

Last time I checked, VAT in the UK was 17.5%.

 

Beyond that, the RRP is exactly that. It's the price that a manufacturer recommends an item is sold for.

That takes local taxes and profit margins into account already.

 

Geez, guys. Try and think back to what Z1 did when the Star L85 came out. :rolleyes:

A question for any owners - do you think you could drill, tap and die the bottom of the mag?

 

Is it so that the outer metal of the mag is also the metal wall for the gas chamber or is there a seperate gas chamber inside the mag?

 

I am asking this to know if this rifle could be made to shoot on HPA or CO2 with tap and die system!

 

Any field action with this baby already?

Is there really any need for HPA with a sniper rifle?

It's not like you should be shooting fast enough to cause cool-down, is it?

 

Beyond that, you're going to be spending a lot of time prone and a hose hanging out the bottom of the mag is going to be a PITA in that position IMO.

Ever thought of the fact that some people like to play with their beauties in the winter time when there are no leaves on trees and you can perfectly use snow camo etc.
