Shop Specs on the Chaparral 25

I've been filling the pistol to 3,000 psi. I can then shoot about 40 shots between 16-19 fpe. That's shooting the #3 buck shot (23.7 grains) in that 550-600 fps range. You can run it alot hotter if you wish - easily up to 750 fps. (which is 29.6 fpe). It's easy to find a power range and a level plateau of shots with the power adjust. If you want to shoot slower - you can get even more of course. It's very versatile.

The pistol is nice and quiet with the composite shroud. I love the ball magazine. It holds 15 round ball. I just index it with the tip of my left index finger. I roll it counter clockwise 90 degrees, snap it back and then forward again, then roll it back clockwise to locked position. I never take my finger off the brass knob. Silky smooth and effortless. I never take my right hand off the pistol grip either. Snap the separate cocking stud back when you wish and go. It's a treat to use and you can get rid of 15 ball pretty quickly.

Accuracy seems very good - even with the raw bag buck shot. I made some tooling which rounds the ball out more spherical, and that makes it even more accurate.
