      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

CZ the firm order em and they are made to order . dunno . i will go with what ever phil say's who has my barrel . like i say i am swinging toward a HW 100 barrel now in case the so called CZ barrel is naff . my carbine one is good and so far needs no cleaning ( two tins through ) so wait and see ??? HOLLY
  3. new sytron 45x45

    Only if i won the lottery stan . my problem is not range finding . it is hitting those -covered in gore- targets ??? HOLLY
  4. Warning over Aeron CZ Barrels ?

    Only going by what phil says Monty . he seems happy to return the barrels for replacement . i don't think matt wants any more bad publicity . that would follow from yet more dodgy barrels . if it does come to getting money back . i think i will get a full length HW 100 barrel . very happy with the carbine one on the wifes steyr . see what happens ??? HOLLY PS as said there is nothing wrong with the barrel on my steyr . just looking for that bit extra ? PSS HW make there own barrel in house .
  5. Warning over Aeron CZ Barrels ?

    The one that's fully worked on is now OK at best but pellet fussy. If I was you I'd look to return or swap it. It's a £50 tops barrel that once it's had very extensive work performed shoots like an £80 barrel IMO. Sureshot has advised Phil it's a dodgy batch that slipped through at the factory but I'd be concerned that given how bad they are this isn't a one off and the next lot might look better but still have nasty things lurking. If Phil gets a replacement 16mm and it shoots 'god like' then I'd probably be happy to go with a replacement but until then I'd always have nagging doubts, and nagging doubts cost you targets even if they're unfounded.
  6. new sytron 45x45

    Bit pricey though. It’s going into March territory
  7. isp airstream

    Good man! Yeah, hopefully there will be a resolution soon for the Aeron 16mm barrels. To be honest Holly I would look to get a different one/refund depending on what the offer is. Phil has done a bucket load of work on his and it is now shooting straight but appears to be VERY pellet fussy (not in an anal 'oh this pellet groups 2mm CTC better than this one' but swings from atrocious to OK) but it isn't astounding enough to pay what you did for it. How long it stays shooting OK for is anyones guess, it might come from the 'CZ suppliers factory' but the one you have ain't a CZ and that will always bother you.
  8. new sytron 45x45

    I would like to get my hands on the New FT lupe ??? HOLLY
  9. The SteyWhei

    Yes Keith shot well for a light rifle . the plan is to sell the steyr barrel that came off it and buy a quick fill barrel or get mick tromans to fit one my cylinder ??? HOLLY PS that is not the barrel that goes on my rifle . i like a longer barrel
  10. isp airstream

    I thought about it monty . but cannot duck the last but one shoot shoot . my shutz is still leaking but only slowly . so will do the course and sort the new Steyr out in the week . don't have the barrel to put on it anyway yet . let us hope sure shot gets a move on if they are a gonna exchange em ??? HOLLY PS Food Hey . hmm like the sound of that . don't let andy any where near it .

    The theory is that if the pellet gets bellowed it makes it shorter and raises the BC
  13. isp airstream

    ok I seen your post asking Tony on lost volume page...it sounds like a good theory !
  14. The SteyWhei

    Now you have found a barrel which works leave it on there and DO not change it.
  15. isp airstream

    Just got a reply from Tony and he said it did not help. I was reading the thread at work and got as far as I got and all sounded good,I didn’t get to the end of the thread.
  16. isp airstream

    itnwas a few weeks ago now don’t know if I’ll be able to find it but I’ll have a look. It’s a very active page so it may be way down the line now. Like I said I’ve noticed it with my springers when inshoot them,it’s not a lot but where I hear people saying they’ve given a kill of wind I’ve only given it left or right edge.
  17. isp airstream

    Ah that sounds like an intresting read....don't have a link do ya?
  18. isp airstream

    I was reading a post on a group on Facebook and it was about how springers tend to take less wind than pcp’s. Now the consensus was that a springer will have about 130 bar when fired compared to a pcp of around 80-110 bar. They did some testing and it was believed because of the higher bar the pellet gets flared more giving it a higher BC down range. A BSA R10 was used as a test bed and set at 130 bar. It was according to the tests that at the higher setting it was taking less wind than before,so maybe there might be something in it to have the bar set higher. Of course it could just be that there was less wind after but it made interesting reading. I have noticed it myself with springers taking less wind but thought maybe I was imagining it.

    I'll keep the plink open but once we start shooting the left hand side will be closed as the last gate is right on the edge of it. We will have the signing in gazebo down at the plink as will the hot soup du jour station, other assorted hot beverages and the after shoot canapes. Don't eat all of them please.
  20. Interesting Steve, we tried some new stuff at our summer league last year and had 2 or 3 angled lanes per course which were a popular aspect. We've never made them really wide apart but enough that you need to swivel on your bag (but not move the bag). We've done this with 2 targets in the same lane of identical distance but one slightly higher up or in bright sunlight and it's amazing how many shooters make them at least 5 yards apart, even shooters with really expensive scopes. Like you say, mess with their head. Positionals I tend to work on the basis that 1 of each is going to be tough, 1 of each is fairly hard and the other 2 of each are relatively straight forward for everyone. Not really thought about the combined lengths but I suspect I'm going 10 yards longer that you are on standers but about the same for kneelers Combined lengths on sitters pretty much agree but I like to have one or 2 lanes that push the boat out a bit. Missing them is no discredit but if you get them both it's a big buzz especially if you're a C or B grade shooter and higher graded shooters can often overthink them and talk themselves into a double dink.
  21. Don't worry, none of us at the Buccs approve of the bean bag shuffle. Rotating on yer bottom 30 or 40 degrees yes, but not having to move half a yard before you can even see the target. Given all the guff the BFTA spout about safety and having to load in position I'm surprised this still goes on. Bouncing your bag to a new position with a loaded rifle doesn't feel very safe to me.
  22. To me what makes a good Winter League course it that it was interesting. That does not necessarily mean challenging though. Targets positioned that make you think, they may not have to be long ones but one in the 40-50yd range that maybe catches the wind unexpectedly or is positioned that makes you start questioning yourself on the range. The trend for widely angled lanes is not something I like but the use of height and downhill shots are. Lifters make the higher ones easier but put a down hill one in and you get a bit of difficulty in scrunched up position. Reactive targets I like, those on barrels that clang when the target falls over.
  23. Funnily enough just used that trick today building the course for Holly to clear next Sunday. I like shooting through gaps (as long as they are wide enough to give wind and I like targets in shade with sunlit ground beyond.

    All of the ISP's I've stuck my digital gauge into over the past year have all had the reg set above 100 bar, one was 118. Doesn't seem to hurt accuracy but you might see a big power spike as it comes off reg. I keep mine mid 90's and power blip is now 10fps rather than 30+ and accuracy hasn't changed. If you fancy a gauge don't get an analogue one, digital is the only way to do it with any certainty. Even a £100 analogue is a waste of time and money.
  25. new sytron 45x45

    First time I looked through a sightron I was surprised by the white out I was getting but that was one of the earlier ones and for the extra cost over a Nikko I would rather have the latter. This new one maybe like the leup comp x but that had a narrow field of view too
  26. LGU stock

    Yes it’s the ZOS lol. You’re right it does need to come up a bit. As for bringing it forward I don’t think it needs it now,I saw a pic of me shooting it and although it feels like my head is too far back it’s actually ok where it is. Set it up properly today and it’s shooting spot on again. It was doing 9ft1b at ETL so 4mm preload and it’s right where I want it 10.6ft1b with express. Should have a bit more luck when I take it out next time. Although not a good score last week I didn’t came last lol
  27. The SteyWhei

    Well the rifle/barrel performed well again to day . tried three different pellets in it and after much testing the AAs came out on top . the barrel has not been cleaned in around two tins of pellets . seems to be ok as such . will keep on shooting it till it starts to go down hill and then clean it . it does NOT like the pellets seated . spat em all over the place .just lightly place them in the breech . only snag is now the forend with the shorter barrel is lighter . the rifle flips more . gonna need a bit more weight on it . . so two more pellets to try in the week and the wife will be ready for the coming summer ???
