Latest completed Chaparral
25 caliber PCP Pistol / Carbine.
Power adjustable from
8 - 38+ fpe
The "Book Matched"
grips and forestock.
Grips have exactly
the same pattern - left and right.
Alot of bright work
- all billet machined parts.

recessed dot - bolt is locked, Red recessed dot - bolt is unlocked.
Note Carbine Buttstock
Interface clamp - center/right of photo at 3 o'clock. Also note

I just did a quick
test ... fiddling with the power adjust as I went, I got 77 shots
down in the 7-10+ fpe range. It will also wind up to over 38 foot
pounds with a simple adjustment.
Clean lines ...
Note Machined Barnes
Logo - Fluted Breech Knob - attention to Details ...
Floated / Integral
Shrouded Barnes barrel
Cocking stud is cushioned
and non-slip rubber ringed on solid bronze.
Billet frame, Bastone
Mounted with one of
my favorite 4X shotgun scopes
Quick Fill -
On the shop test bench
That'll do for a start!
3 shots @ 12 yards.
#3 Buckshot ball.
(Just a note - while
testing, I found the ball a joy to just toss in the breech tray.
The pellets - as always - required "positioning".)
How about some upper
velocity and power numbers?
That's the #3 buckshot
ball - 23.7 grains @ 809 fps for 34.45 fpe
The 20 grain Diana
25 pellet - 20 grains @ 851 fps for 32.16 fpe
And the 35 grain Korean
pellet - 35 grains @ 704 fps for 38.52 fpe.
From the standard long
barrel (11 13/16") pistol format with integral blued steel
shroud. Yes - sounds more like spunky PCP rifle numbers. ;?)
I haven't figured shot
string lengths for every weight pellet yet. No matter - nothing's
easier than filling a PCP and there's no magic anyway: You burn
the air which your demanded performance requires. If you want
more shots, just turn it down.
to spare here ... ;?)
