Furthermore, my involvement has seen several little improvements develop which I will be hoping to incorporate into the UK spec models, to make shooting them even better than the other cricket models out there.



I doubt that very much  ;D ;D

O.K so please tell what makes you the expert ?  You obviously have a vast engineering knowledge and will give us some information based on fact ?

or are you turning into a troll ?   Phil is a member of this forum as much as you are mate.

Dezyboy, yes I am a time served cnc engineer
And I do know what I'm talking about.
Kalibrgun set the guns up perfect,
And the guy who designed the reg on the cricket
Is a genius.
They are the only gun manufacturers to have
Eliminated the sweet spot.

As for the  ratworks saying their crickets
Are better than any other crickets out there
Is  the biggest load of crap I've ever heard.

He's too quick to slag off other sources,
It's very unprofessional .

I have 2 crickets and  both shoot fantastic
And are as consistent as you could possibly
Get.
They're from Cyprus btw

.25 cal -  60 ft/lbs with no more than 1-2 ft/s variation
from 250 bar to 100bar
So as I said

"I doubt that very much"
 ;)

Fare enough

Kalibrgun set the guns up perfect,

Not so with the trigger I hear , but that's just going by google and the fact it already has a trigger mod recommended by owners

And the guy who designed the reg on the cricket
Is a genius.

Fare enough

They are the only gun manufacturers to have
Eliminated the sweet spot.

Sorry but .. can you explain that, because every regulated rifle I have ever shot didn't have a sweet spot.. except a badly setup R10

As for the  ratworks saying their crickets
Are better than any other crickets out there
Is  the biggest load of crap I've ever heard.

And you base this from a side by side comparison ? or are you talking without any first hand knowledge of the ratworks cricket ?

He's too quick to slag off other sources,
It's very unprofessional .

Pot ... Kettle... Black ?

I have 2 crickets and  both shoot fantastic
And are as consistent as you could possibly
Get.

Not heard anything bad about them, only that the trigger is o.k but easily made better (I don't own one so that's just hearsay)

.25 cal -  60 ft/lbs with no more than 1-2 ft/s variation
from 250 bar to 100bar
So as I said

"I doubt that very much"

Nothing against you, I just don't see why you are so dead against the ratworks when the only negative things I can find on the net are from other people who have no first hand experience of the ratwork's cricket.

Unless you can point me to someone who has ..

Dezyboy, the reason because people are against the ratworks were his immature comments he made
In regards to buying from Cyprus. (This thread )

I only put the sticky up there to inform you guys if you were buying from Cyprus , to buy from the official source, as couple of members nearly paid funds to a grey importer.
It was not to tell everyone to buy from Cyprus.

I bought mine from the official source direct from Cyprus which  will have a full EU guarantee , not a grey import as phil (ratworks) has said.
No I've not tried the ratworks cricket and no one else have because he still haven't sold any yet.
And yes I will buy from Cyprus again also, because he's a good dealer.

As for trigger mods
The triggers are fantastic , neither of mine have needed any adjustment (see gambo's review)
Some people have put an O ring on the second stage adjustment screw which is only needed if you've
Wound it out excessively, and the tension on the 2nd stage adjustment screw is very very light.
(Just stops it winding out any more)


As for uk  legal guns , adjusting the reg down a bit and fitting anti tamper is not tuning in my eyes,
The real genius behind these  rifles is from Russia not England  ;)
I got a diving cylinder and a reg tester  and a Dremel but I don't consider my self a tuner.
The crickets are superb anyway straight from manufacturer and don't require tuning

Uk importer
So I got no problem with a kalibrgun dealer in uk, some people would prefer to buy from a local dealer,

I'm surprised ASI haven't gone for it as they did with the fx range ;)

But for me , this time Cyprus was a much better solution and I saved a lot of money  ;)
Plus I got  one within a month.
Not sure if that would be the case now as there are long waiting lists and kalibrgun can't produce
The rifles quick enough.

So when phil got on his high horse about buying from abroad, I think he annoyed a lot of people.

ATB Julio  ;D ;)

That is a very reasoned arguement.

Dezyboy, no worries  at all
It's just about getting what you want and when you want it  lol
 I'm impatient  and hate waiting  for  things  otherwise the money will burn a hole in my pocket  ;D
I got a mate who travels abroad quite often and  I might just
Get him to bring me an fx monsoon back  ;)
I better start saving

Sme, my .25 is fac  but my .22 is sub 12 but that don't matter as they're easily set whichever
Route you need to go, and shoot fantastic  either way.
The accuracy is  amazing also
I'm gonna pop up gambo's later this week with the .25
So I'm sure he'll do some sort of review , he done a good one of the .22
