    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    What you will have to do now is aquire a rifle you know is 12ftlb and fire at the same target and check to see how much damage it makes compared to yours but I must warn you to wear goggles as you will get pellets flying back at you or at least test at a safe distance

    You must experiment, I use old pc covers to see how hard the pellets hit/dent the metal

    do you think a 12 ftlb air rifle could do that sort of damage to 3 1/4 inch plywood?

    You will probably go through the first 1/4 and dent the next, the question I have is can you compare a 12ftlb gun against your own gun?

    as Steve410 suggests the only way you will know what power your gun truely is, is to have it tested

    in the meantime....

    compare/test and compare again
