    New bunny gun excel arms accelerator 22wmr semi

    I was very pleased to take ownership of my new pest control rifle this week.
    I bought a excel arms accelerator 22wmr semi from Ken at 55six in Welly.
    Ken was fantastic to deal with and everything he told me was spot on.
    I finally got to the range today to run a couple different types of ammo through it to test function before I start customizing it to suit me.

    How does it balance with that plastic out the back and heavy barrel out the front? Suppressor next?

    It's surprisingly weighty at 3.658kg skoped, but because it's so short it actually balances really nicely and I think the pistol grip also helps.
    It's only 825mm from crown to end of the butt it really points very nicely.

    I already have plans for a fore grip and single point sling.
    I also have a 1 piece quick release scope mount as to mount the scope where I need it for eye relief it covers one of the takedown screws that you need to access to clean and maintain the rifle.
    I know the qr scope mount will mean I have to check zero after cleaning but that's ok.
    I also have plans for a custom over barrel suppressor that comes back to the hand guard.

    Tested 2 different lots of ammo today, of interest the instruction manual states to use 40gn or heavier with a mv of 1870fps or greater.
    Here is a group shot with Winchester 40gn JHP
    6 shots at 50 yards in windy conditions. Took my time and made sure every shot was on point

    Here is a 9 round mag dump as fast as I could pull the trigger with cci 40gn game points which it clearly loves.

    Would be interesting to see the numbering on those shots. Up-down-up-down... or left to right or...?
