Element Nexus is the flagship rifle scope from Element Optics. I had the opportunity to take a closer look at this scope and will present you the main features today.
Element Nexus is an outstanding rifle scope for many shooters. Whether you are a long-range shooter and want to shoot at many hundreds of meters or an air rifle shooter and want to shoot at 10m. If you are looking for outstanding quality at a comparatively low price, then you can’t get past Nexus. Japanese lenses have not just recently ranked among the best, and the light transmission of the 4x zoom challenges top German brands such as Zeiss or Schmidt & Bender.
In the course of the last years, I always had one or the other highlight for you. But what I present to you today simply beats everything. Start thinking about how you’re going to explain to your wives why you need to drain your bank account after this review and video.
Leshiy is an extremely compact and incredibly high quality air rifle. You can tell that the designers have put an extreme amount of thought into the rifle, down to the smallest detail. The stock can be folded. If you pull the small lever on the left side, you can even remove the buttstock completely for transportation and maintenance reasons. This is of course a unique and outstanding feature.
You can see that I can’t stop raving about it. I’m absolutely thrilled about my little Leshiy. It’s just incredibly fun to put the rifle in a little bag, go to the range and really enjoy shooting. The precision, the workmanship, the handling… everything is just perfect!
Crosman SNR357 had caught my eye many months ago while browsing online stores. Tastes differ, as we all know, but this revolver stood out for me visually from the many other handguns. So, I ordered it and wanted to find out if I liked shooting with it.
Crosman SNR357 is a CO2 revolver that is powered by a standard 12-gram CO2 cartridge. You can use .177 (4.5 mm) steel BBs or .177 (4.5 mm) pellets. Since the barrel isn’t rifled, you can easily opt for the steel BBs. Often you have a rifled barrel on guns that are for both pellets and BBs. Steel BBs are not really recommended for this kind of barrel, as they can slowly damage it.
The model presented today is a classic break-barrel air pistol with a ball lock. This is a proven system that enjoys great popularity. You hold the HW70 by the grip and push the barrel down at the front until it locks into place. Then you load a caliber .177 (4.5 mm) pellet into the barrel and close it.
There are two different versions of the air pistol. I’m testing Weihrauch HW70 Black Arrow today. It doesn’t have open sights and needs to be shot with a scope. You can choose between a pistol scope or a reflex sight, for example. In addition, the pistol has a muzzle brake at the barrel end.
I must confess, I have never been interested in ultra-compact versions of air rifles before. For me, the look of the rifle plays an important role. When I take a gun out of my gun safe, I want to enjoy the sight of it. Many air rifles simply look truncated when built extra short. It’s different with FX Dreamline Compact. It totally meets my taste.
FX Dreamline Compact Lite obviously differs from the already known FX Dreamline Lite by its shorter design. Both the barrel and the cartridge are shorter than the well-known Dreamline Lite model. Two questions in particular will be interesting for us: Is Dreamline Compact just as precise as the long model? And what about the capacity of the cartridge? I did the test for you and took a closer look at FX Dreamline Compact.
