Shadow 2 kadet kit

Just ordered a Kadet kit for my Shadow 2-should be here by Thursday-can I get some reviews from members that have them?

I have one. Only used it a little bit. My Shadow 2 has a lighter than stock mainspring and that needs to be swapped out to make the upper reliable.

Fun to shoot. Whole new meaning to light recoil.

My S2 Kadet was a little finicky for the first 300 round.  After that it is flawless.  My 10 year old son loves the S2 Kadet, he thinks it is his. Maybe I'm in the wrong on this one. ??? ;)

What fed the best was Federal 40 grain lead round nose 1080 fps.  This shot well in my bolt action rifles, but it's not match grade ammo.  At 50 yards the Federal would be a 2" group where SKS would be a 3/4" group in a rifle.  If I remember correctly CCI standard velocity worked well also.  I've accumulated several different brands of 22 ammo and they all fed and fired perfectly after the first 300 rounds.  I think that the Kadet just needed to break in.

Good luck with the Kadet and happy shooting.
