She will be fine.

A mates redtail died the day after feeding one. He took the squirrel to the vets with the hawk for tests. He confirmed it was the squirrel that killed the hawk. I suppose it was a very rare case. Just thought Id mention it.

The mod is one of my own it is 10" long as it,s on a FAC Rapid and lot,s more volume of air is used so more space is needed to keep quite . I also do them in reflex design where they back vent towards the bottle so the barrel is kind of shrouded and only has approx 4" in front of the muzzle to keep the length down but best of all they are quieter than anything that can be bought from a shop



If you've ever taken a rapid apart, you would know the threads and block can handle that leverage.
Spot on mate

I always remove the head and guts before feeding them to any of the animals

To be honest there is nothing in it between airguns today in regards accuracey once you have found the best pellet for your gun it,s all about how good a shot you are . But when it comes to other points the Rapid will always be the winner i sold my R10 but would never sell my Rapids or my BSA S10

My Redtail loves catching them and when she has one i have to leave her to kill and break in and have a little feed,but she never eats the gut,s if i dont she get,s mardy and upset, was aware they carry disease but never had a problem!something to think about .Any vets on here who could advise

Ive had bipods on buddy bottles since the mid 90,s never had a problem.In engineering terms the size of threads on any gun is more than capable of handling the stresses for bipod fitment

But..
Good bag never the less .........

Thanks lol

It looks "The Dogs" but not sure I could carry it lol.

What's the total weight, power output & realistic killing range?

Is that a night-sight?

Cheers.
