Stoeger Arms X20S Suppressor Air Rifle air rifle
Stoeger Arms X20S Suppressor Air Rifle air rifle
Price: $129.49 - $360.57

5.0 out of 5 stars Great All-Arounder!, August 18, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a well finished, well balanced, reasonably light weight springer air rifle. Easy to cock. Reasonably accurate out of the box (I am shooting 2" groups at 15 yards, standing offhand. I'm sure I could shoot half that or better from a bench, but where is the fun in that!) So far with 100 pellets down range on day one, I am really liking this suppressed carbine.

As others have mentioned, the scope is too short in order to get to the eyebox comfortably, but it is reasonably bright, tracks well, and can adjust down to zero at 15 yards without shimming the rear mount; decent enough to get by with at 15+ yards during the break-in period, and would probably be survivable if you have long arms (otherwise, plan on upgrading the scope to a full sized Leapers or Centerpoint after break-in). Under 15 yards the scope is blurry, as the parallax is set at 30 yards, which is where the manual says to zero it at. So it is not a very good scope for close range shooting.

I adjusted the trigger's second stage screw down to it's minimum setting, which seems to be pretty good...not exactly like my Geissele SSA-E trigger on my LR308 CSASS rifle, but certainly better than my stock Ruger 10/22 trigger! I think I can live with this for a while, though like many owners, I'll probably upgrade the trigger to a GRT-III after break-in.

Noise-wise, it's quiet enough, even when still dieseling, to shoot in my urban backyard. If it get's even quieter after break-in, great! If not, it's plenty quiet to shoot in the city without a 911 call.

I think this is a great all-arounder, and considering the price and it's low noise level, I give it 5 Stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value in an Air-Rifle Scope for shooting within 25 yards!, August 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is why you should buy this scope for your air rifle:

1) Price. It's about half the price of most other quality, air-rifle Mil-Dot, AO Scope, and comes with decent rings.

2) You don't plan on shooting past 25 yards. 4x magnification with Mil-dot is just fine for shooting air rifle precision within 25 yards. If you plan on shooting past that on a regular basis, consider going to a 2x7, 3x9 or 3x12 scope (especially if you are target shooting at that distance and need to use your scope for spotting your hits)

3) You want light weight! a 3x9 or 3x12 leapers will cost you an extra 5-6oz in weight. If you plan on sitting and shooting, the weight doesn't make that much difference, but if you plan on stalking game in the field, every ounce counts! (Especially when you get a bit older, or for younger or female shooters). There are a few lower weight variable options; see below.

4) If you are left handed, you will want an Objective-based parallax adjustment ring like this one, NOT a side adjustment knob, as the side knob is on the left hand side, which is horrible for making regular adjustments for left handed shooters.

5) You can live without an illuminated reticle. The only time you would use illumination is at dusk or night, but it is not nearly as important when using a 4x fixed power scope like this, as it is considerably more low-light capable than a high variable power scope (practically speaking, if you are shooting a variable power at dusk/night, you will likely drop the power all the way down to 3x in order to get the largest "aperture" you can, in order to get more light). The 4x fixed has better low light capability than a 3-Xx variable power set at 3x. All things considered, I choose a better low light scope like this, without illumination, as I can almost always make out my reticle in lower light anyway.

6) You don't mind returning the scope to Amazon if you get a Dead on Arrival (DOA) scope: like some of the reviewers have mentioned, the quality control consistency appears to be lacking... some are good, some are not. Skilled budget shoppers can handle returning a dud or two on Amazon's dime. My first one was good to go.

The closest size/weight/price capable Mil-Dot AO Air Rifle scope I have found to this scope is the CenterPoint/Crossman 3-9x32, which is 2oz lighter and illuminated. I have used both and find the overall quality of this scope (and included rings) to be better than the Centerpoint.

Biggest downside to this scope is the very tight eye-box and no variable eye-relief distance. Most of my higher-end scopes for powder rifles (Burris, Primary Arms) have a much larger area in which your can see though this scope both front to back and side to side. Not so with this scope: it requires a very precise eye placement to get a proper view though the scope. As an experienced shooter, I have no problem aligning this scope quickly, but for newer shooters, this could be a problem, and is somewhat annoying to me, (- 1 Star)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best DC switch for remote electronic door locks we have found so far!, July 18, 2015
Great switch for high volume uses (ours 24 installed RCI switches at 12 locations for remote door jams see 5000 presses a month, and all have lasted, good as new, for 6 to over 12 months! Well worth the money to prevent a warranty dispatch for a faulty switch, which we had seen all the time until we swapped them all out to these. highly recommended for high volume business use, and lower volume uses that need high reliability, such as life-safety.

Does a great job of pocket carry for my KelTec PF9 with CTC Laser. Highly recommend if that is your CCW carry (two photos attached).
(Somewhere Tuff Lists the Size 49 as fitting the Glock 19... negitive. Tested it and it does not fit safely nor securely)..

4.0 out of 5 stars While there is room for improvement in the advanced software tools (time-based selection of which movement grid settings to use, January 24, 2015
I have 16 of these systems (the 8-camera version...same/same), installed in stores, monitored by guards, throughout Southern California. While there is room for improvement in the advanced software tools (time-based selection of which movement grid settings to use would be nice, as would selecting how many beeps the system makes upon sensing movement), but for the price, this system can't be beat and does a very good job of providing a high quality image, both day and night, as well good movement sensing, easy enough menus and click/double click options for changing views quickly. both servers and cameras have been very reliable... I've had a few cameras go to to B&W only, but they seem to switch back to color after a while so no big deal. The reasonably decent remote viewing and control app (FLIR), quickly available from both the android and apple stores, makes it very easy to provide your management staff (or family members) the ability to remote view and control the cameras from a smartphone... along with selectable access per user, based upon accounts you allow them to log into. Overall, a very good system that could use some software feature enhancement, but at the price, I'm giving it 5 Stars!

Sure, I'd love to outfit my stores with higher-end IP Cameras and servers like I run at home, but it would be well over twice the price, and 4 times the setup,maintenance/troubleshooting time... just not worth it unless you want to make IP Cameras/Servers your new hobby.

I highly reccomend the Lorex 720 systems for both home and business use

4.0 out of 5 stars Great deal for the price! Add and aftermarket ear bud and you are good to go for duty use!, December 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works great for LE/Security work. Clips are durable, as is the mic button. Fits most modern Midland GMRS handsets with the dual plug. Only problem with this kit is the ear bud... made out of soft plastic, it has two prominent mold seams at oposite sides of the bud running the leath of the bud; the mold seams are very irritating to the ear over time. I managed to trim down these seams with a fresh exacto knife blade, which significantly reduced the problem, but I'm still taking off one start for not shipping a seamless ear bud, as is used by the more expensive kits sold down at my local cop shop. Pickup an Earmold for this kit ( http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Medium-Earmold-Earbud-Two-Way/dp/B004EGESN6 ) or a ten-pack of ear bud replacements from TAPualk ( http://www.amazon.com/TAPaulk-Replacement-Mushroom-Acoustic-Earpieces/dp/B00A2U1Z2U/ref=pd_sim_sg_25?ie=UTF8&refRID=0W4Q3KEWAT2JA41DZNH7 ) and you will be good to go with this kit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Case for the LG Tribute, December 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A GREAT HD Case for the LG Tribute. Very durable and functional. Well worth the investment for this phone. It does increase the width to almost 3" (and 5/8" deep), which fits my XL-glove hands just fine, but it may be bit wide for smaller handed users. I couldn't be happier with this case!

2.0 out of 5 stars Fail: Very poor fit on my new Mot Luge (XT907) from Verizon Pre-pay: See Photo, December 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I just got this in an hour ago.This does not properly fit my new Motorola LUGE from Verizon Pre-pay. It appears to be a inherent design or manufacturing flaw, as the top of the hard-shell portion does not have any locking features into the rubber shell below it (unlike the bottom), resulting it the top front edge of the colored plastic hanging up like it had been pried back: looks like crap and will no doubt be catching stuff all day long in my bags and packs (see photo... that is an approximate 1/8th in gap there... plenty of room to catch on everything it touches!).This also results in the upper back portion of the hard plastic portion being popped up, out of the form fit channels molded in the black rubber cover beneath it. Bent? Manufacturing error? Design flaw? Whatever, this thing is nearly unusable as it is, and if I had the time to return a low cost item like this, I would!

Now I'm off to look for either an Aero Armor or Incipio case for it (both of which I have in front of me on different phones and they are both great!),which I should have done from the start!
Cheers!

OTHER OPTIONS: here are a couple of alternative cases for the MOT LUGE/RAZR M/XT907: The Trident AGEIS: http://www.amazon.com/Trident-Case-AG-MOT-XT907-BLU-Series-Motorola/dp/B00A2HGP2S/ref=cm_wl_huc_item

and a lower cost but durable looking eqivilent to the Aero Armor product: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DD4E9SE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have the lower cost cover on order: Ill post an update around the new year to let you know how it's working.

Cheers!

Sure, it's $20, but look at the design quality and protection I'm IN!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great solution for a significant volume of Rx and MMJ ..., November 29, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A great solution for a significant volume of Rx and MMJ Medicinal storage and inventory. Nice padded walls keep everything safe. Plenty of room to customize the storage area using adhesive backed Velcro strips (Walmart) on the inside walls and storage containers of all sizes.
For MMJ use, it can't be beat... locking container excludes Law Enforcement probable cause search in most jurisdictions, and will show damage if broken open be law enforcement... same legal status as having meds in the trunk, as there is no immediate driver/passenger access to this bag, even if it is sitting on the front seat.

This locking case is large and heavy due to the bank-bag quality lock; If you are looking for a similar locking case feature but in a much smaller and lighter solution, check out the small locking 5x8 medicine pouch by vaultz.net (Walmart, $6, in black and zebra), or checkout the website directly to see some of their more stylish designs.... I carry both... this larger case as an inventory storage bag, and the smaller Vaultz pouch as an EDC solution inside of my Maxpedition shoulder bag.
