    I'm setting up my new 9015HP for FT over the Christmas break ...

    What tips do you have from living with this rifle?

    I've read it's designed to be used indoors at room temperature, how do they cope with rain and the cold?

    Does one particular pellet come out more popular than another?
    I would appreciate any feedback so I know where to start with my pellet testing.

    So far I've fitted an AJP riser, some extra bits for the One stock and had the quick fill fitted.

    Also, the quick fill while convenient, isn't that quick- am I doing it right? Seems like I have to keep the bottle gauge on 190bar for ages while the air slowly goes in to the rifle. If I release too soon it's not filled.

    Total noob with this LOL.

    Thanks
    Emma

    I found mine is good with air arms 4.52 8.44.
    I set it up at approx 6 degree C and have used for the last 4 shoots 2 at Hereward, 1 harriers and 1 etl and had my best scores, and only needed to adj top turret a couple of clicks.
    Have fun setting it up Emma.

    Ooohhhh! A 9015!!

    They are pretty bombproof emma. Weather resistant and pretty good hot to cold, once its run in you may have to turn it up a bit in winter and vise versa.
    Pellets, the usual suck it and see what it likes.

    Quickfill, you shouldnt be filling it quickly anyway. If its filling ok to 190 then slowing id suspect bottle pressure being low rather than gun issue

    Congrats on the new rifle Emma.
    Clean out the factory grease from the striker/hammer and striker channel to make it less temperature sensitive.
    And put some nice matte black electrical tape (Tesa) over the slot at the left hand side of the house to keep the water out when it rains.

    Ratworks do a carbon cover for the slot to stop rain getting in. Doesn't do the job any better than tape, but looks nicer.

    Get Phil to convert it to rear cocking as well - I noticed an improvement in consistency when I had mine done.

    Emma I use JSB 8.4 in 4.53 in mine but I think they are not very pellet fussy as long as the pellets are good. What I would say to you is the 9015 is a very fast action and is therefore very forgiving so be careful that bad habits don’t start creeping into your shooting. If you really concentrate on trigger technique and follow through like you would with any other rifle you can achieve some fantastic groups. Good luck.

    When you pull the cocking lever back, it cocks the stabiliser and the hammer at the same time - just like the Steyr.

    Removes a couple of unnecessary linkages.

    It was only added as a feature so that the 10m shooters could shove a red flag down their breach.

    Mine is quite pellet fussy, so do your pellet testing.

    I found that mine was quite pellet fussy to start with, but i am back to using AA Field 4.52. I have removed the Steyr air stripper i had fitted as that didn't work with my barrel (too many fliers) and i also bought a full VFG rod cleaning kit to get it super clean and that also helped once i leaded it back in again. Leading in went from taking 10 pellets if i used a pull through, to about 30 pellets after a deep clean with the rod, felts and paste.

    I chrono'd mine from about 175bar down to 75 bar (110 shots) and saw a 19fps variation. That was with a cold rifle (done in the garage) and pellets straight from the tin and waiting 45secs between shots.

    If you have any accuracy issues, the strip it back to being barrel only with no shroud or air stripper and retest it again.

    If its new then keep an eye on the power as i have adjusted mine upwards twice over the past 6 months as it settled in.

    I lube my pellets that seems to work keeping barrel clean also I find mine likes slacker pellets I tried these after I went on anschutz Web site and they only sell pellets 4.50 and below so put a spark in my mind so managed to get some JSB 8.4 which were slack in my barrel even though it said 4.52 on tin and yes I no what it says on the tin is total crap when it comes to head sizes and found it to be a mega batch so after testing bought a boat load of them and never looked back

    Well its always worth trying new things out (4.50 eh....). I will try some 4.50 as well. Oh and the QYS Streamlined (8.48gn) are pretty decent too.
