Ive recently aquired an s16s mk2. Its accuracy is excellent but the power output is poor. There is nothing on the net for stripping down or upping the power of this gun, except the fabled 'grub screw' which doesnt exist on this gun. The only other thing you can do is add spacers behind the hammer spring but this doesnt do a lot. If anyone knows of a way to properly tune this gun then please let me know.

Ive owned my s16s for around 18 months and have had no problems at all. When i first used it i did forget to fully push home the cocking handle which caused the gun to misfire- however just by cocking again the gun would shoot both pellets out and problem solved. Ive always used crossman accupells and demonstrated the two pellet shot several times with no problems.
Power is as good as any other air gun ive seen or used thats legal (12 ft lb) Testing on dog food tins (chappie) we got complete... (read more)

I fell in love with a friends Logun S16 but due to them being out of production I ended up buying an S16s.
To be perfectly honest my first thought as I pulled the gun from its box was "bl00dy hell its an ugly biatch". I was used to the sleek front end of the S16 with its silencer. I built up the barrel shroud fully as I wanted to hear how quiet it would fire. The front end suddenly became as sleek looking as the mk1 (I've now changed my thoughts on the front end and fire the gun with the... (read more)

The first air rifle I bought and it's the only rifle I ever had. Like what everyone says, it's very accurate and I find the rifle a really cool design. For an air rifle, this isn't expensive compared to most out there. If you buy this rifle, you got to get the Logun Penetrator pellets because they are superb, it's rock hard and guarantees extra knockout power.
A few bad points but I think the good makes up for it. It is very heavy and for an average build size person, you can probably hold... (read more)

I have the .22 version of the Logun S16s and it got mixed reports when it first came out. Its predecessor, the S sixteen, known as sweet sixteen, had made a place in the hearts of air gunners. The major problem appeared to have been the O ring, which seemed to wear at a terrific rate of knots. The other problem lies in the trajectory of .22 as opposed to .177, the latter stated as being 'more forgiving.' Having bought one I lubricated the O ring with gun grease, and regularly cleaned off... (read more)

This is the S shrouded model, looks good. I had early problem with pellets jamming and found the cause in my case to be the 16 shot magazine retaining rubber rings that should hold the pellets in place. I found that for me it was always the first pellet that jammed, so I did not load the first pellet in each of the rotating magazines and all was well, what was happening was that the first pellet was not within the shielded part of the magazine and the rubber retaining ring allowed the pellet...

A Pyramidair you can attach a CO2 adapter for $40 bucks and run it on paintball airtanks (co2/air). Pick your vice. Only jammed twice due to my ignorance on NOT properly cocking the bolt fully to load the pellets. I can consistently hit a Gamo steel silhouette target at 45-50yrds with a steady hold or platform. Got lots of attention at the rifle range due to it's looks. Lots and lots of shots per airtank 4500psi PureEnergy paintball tank attached and or 16oz CO2 tank. (read more)

I have tried and owned allmost every pcp on the market ,but I was never happy with the longtherm accuracy and mechanical quality. After a season, and having fired more than 7000 shots with the Logun s16-s I never had any problems (other than replacing the o-rings). Now I can say, buy the best gun there is on the market. It may be a bit more expensive, but it's worth every penny. (read more)

All said and done, a brilliant all rounder. But friendly advice to anyone who has one of these without a cleaning kit and barrel rod, INVEST IN ONE! Because when it jams, and it will, a barrel rod will save you a bundle, 45 from my local dealer to get the breach flushed each time. But back to the rifle, no regrets at all. Thanks for reading.

Co2 gas is better for warmer days and airtank is better for colder days and or year round.
To prevent pellet jams....DO NOT double cock and make sure that the cock lever is fully set forward to lock the pellet load into the breach. (read more)

This is the first precharge I have owned. I was looking forward to an easy life of not having to break a barrel each time I wanted to pop a shoot off. How wrong I was. I got the rifle new but within 2 days I had my first jam. It has jamed on about 3 other occasions. The only good thing that has come from owning this rifle is that I'm now a profesional at stripping down and rebuilding it! My best time is about 20 mins. joking aside, when it does work, it's a top class rifle. (read more)

Spent the last 2 days trying to get ONE pellet to fire through the Logun S16s. Even after reading about the proper lever-cocking technique and proper pellets to use I still found myself tearing it down to retrieve the pellets jammed into the barrel. I'll give it one more try and have this one replaced by my dealer (in the USA).... but if the replacement misbehaves I'll have to find another place to spend $1000 USD. (read more)

I bought this rifle with a scope for £370, and that was second hand, the thing that anoyed me was the fact that it kept breaking, it was in the shop a lot, they would fix it, and then charge me for cleaning tools, it was so bad they broke. Then charge me double what the tools cost. I sold the gun a month later but i only got £250 for the lot. I wouldn't recommend it but i am considering buying another, call me crazy . . . . (read more)

I've been shooting with an S16 mk1 for a few weeks now and fell in love with it. Unfortunately I couldn't source one to buy so settled on the S16s or mk2.
At first glance the shroud on the "S" model makes the gun look "chunkier" therefore heavier. It's not. Any weight difference is minimal and cant be detected in holding each gun in either hand.
The chunkier look is also made by a longer forestock being fitted. This longer forestock alleviates a niggle, that the Mk1 has, when using a... (read more)

I have owned my S16s for around 2 months now and it has claimed the lives of many feral pigeons, magpies, crows and rabbits.

Logun S16s - A lovely looking and sufficiently powered rifle, is well balanced and very accurate, but it is plagued by faults that simply shouldn't occur on a rifle of this price bracket and Brand name.
Very dissappointed by after-sales, seals went within 100 shots and despite being replaced 4 times, it still leaks!

As soon as I got the Logun S16s air rifle I took it in the field. It only took a few shots to zero in due to the laser that was on it. As far as its performance... Well it performs like it looks, and that's the business. It is so accurate you find yourself asking "can I ever miss again?" It has approximately 250 shots per fill, and it handles great due to the pistol grip. It also has more accessories than a Barbie doll. (read more)

I have had my Logun S16s air rifle for about 6 months now. On my first couple of outings it tended to jam, but this was because I was being too gentle with the bolt, and not forcing the pellet properly into place. After I had sighted it in, the next problem was stray pellets, as one or two of the sixteen shots was going a few inches wide for no particular reason. I think this may have been caused by slightly mis-shaped pellets, or maybe the gun just needed breaking in, because it has sorted... (read more)
