ALL TARGETS SHOWN ACTUAL
(Some monitors may alter
the sizes; for reference, paper circles are 2-3/4 across)
These test targets were
shot with various examples of Marvel.22 LR Conversions.
All were production models. No special fitting or tuning was done.
The units were shot from a Ransom Rest, which is a machine
rest designed to repeatedly fire handguns without the vagaries of human
optical sighting, physical aiming and actuation. A Ransom Rest is - by far
-the truest test
of a guns and/or ammos accuracy. However, even a Ransom Rest
needs a highly trained, skilled and experienced operator since the slightest
interference or change in technique can dramatically effect results, as
demonstrated by the varying results Marvel Conversion Units have delivered
in the hands of some testers. (To understand what we're talking about, imagine
we gave you the Stock Car that won this years Daytona 500. How fast
and how well would you be able to use it without a lot of experience?)
All groups contain five
shots (except the 100-round target, of course), and all were fired at the
range of 50 yards. The ammo was different lots of Eley brand (unless noted).
While not necessarily the most accurate ammo in every Marvel Conversion
Unit, it is extremely consistent, and it quickly tells us how a Unit is
performing. The 100-round target was shot at 50 yards with standard velocity
Aguila, a Mexican import that is very inexpensive. So if you want to shoot
cheap ammo in your Marvel Conversion Unit, you can be reasonably sure you¹ll
still get good results.
A NOTE ABOUT OUR TESTING
Marvel test-fires each
and every unit before it is shipped, and we test-fire them a lot.
Every single one shipped will shoot under 1 at 50 yards. Now, when
we say a Unit will shoot under 1, we dont mean once. We dont
mean twice. We mean consistently, time and time again. (Theoretically and
mathamatically, any gun is capable of shooting a sub-one-inch group
once.) And the target we ship with that unit is not the smallest one it
shot - it is an average group from that individual Unit.
The targets you see
on this page are extra average targets from Units we shipped (we test each
Unit with between 100 and 200 rounds - so we get a lot of extra targets).
We also urge you to test your new unit with your favorite ammos. Just because
we got a .6732" group with your Unit and our lot of Eley doesntmean
it wont shoot better with some other ammo. Only testing will tell.
There is a saying that
you can only be a great shot if you have a great gun, and it makes sense
because even the best shot in the world is at the mercy of the accuracy
of his gun. Knowing this, if you treasure accuracy, the Marvel .22 Conversion
Unit makes a lot of sense.
