    You have a well used and abused cocking then, seen a few 2020, 2002 like that but can be tweaked more than usable.

    Still adjustable but no one ever did.

    New Scope

    Have to play around with the scope and see what makes it tick. Some perform better set towards infinity, others perform better the lower you can keep it like my old PR VX3 and PR Mark 4 35 both set to 58 yards. Bit of practice you can range accurately 62 yards. Point is without doing it your in no mans land and pot luck. From the ones seen where Leupold set to 75 yards they turn out to be more like 150/175 yards.

    Adjust the cam so transfer port lines up. Ink marker comes in handy then wipe it off after. Then will need to get the right tension on the barrel of which theres probably two imprints where all it will want to do is go in that same place. Get it right and it will leave skirt flush upon closing. Now if it has been alright in the past and suddenly develops a blast or TP not lining up, straighten the cocking link. Cant really overdo it as when closing it will bend back to normal. Had to do that about 6 times in 8 1/2 years. Seen loads come brand new not centred up and of course barrel put in leaving the two imprints. Even worse is when they send out TP blowing, daylight seen underneath.

    Biggest mistake you all made was not playing around with the actual scope. All are/were and performed differently and only the users could set it up. If didnt setup you were using it half cocked.

    Might know of a stainless GC2 up for grabs, Pete on here.

    No need to everything perfect its German. Seen a few transfer port o rings get nicked. Anchutz that eccentric cam is not for adjusting bolt to barrel its purely for bolt to transfer port where many come from factory just thrown together not lining up. Even when they are aligned most will still blow out needing extra sorting which should have been done at factory.

    How much do you reckon it would cost to produce, assemble, setup, market excluding distribution and shops that would add another 60%+. Reckon £2200 action only 10 units at a time plus any distribution etc takes it up to £3520+ each. Fairly sure an action was £900 by 1993 and not worth while when others retailed around the £400-600 mark and still being produced with no R&D involved.

    Besides done many tests decades ago constricting the flow, shows up deficiencies in valve, spring(s) and piston not necessarilly tolerances. Even Anchutz aint worked that out Pete on here will confirm, yet same copy of a Dawes reg as designed and made in 1983 though Walther did crack it to an extent.

    Throttling the feed will work on any reg inlet, some worse some better, just depends on how its made. Other problem is the air temp generated as it goes through the threaded constriction, not many producers do it.

    Theyre a copy of the Dawes Tony remember seeing him in 93 dismissing regs as no good. Experimented way before Bowket copied the same regs, some didnt even need a return spring! Current rifle No2 made in 93 i dragged out a couple of months back still on same o rings for shut off valve and piston 3 years before. Same all year round rain, sleet or shine often shot down to -6 back then to +95. No leaks and untouched since so should still be the same. Before the valve break 5 days before the 2005 Worlds it used to do same power any pellet within 8ft/sec and only know of 8 rifles ever done that did so 5 of which were mine.

    The 3 other regs, two of which are the same as marketed by individuals and large compaies worldwide. Only the Alcocks not copied (tell a lie it was) as its air operated. Valves still got to shut off however the restriction if at all any to the flow, makes no odds except takes excessively long to do so. No reg ever made will have a constant output throughout the charge. Good ones are 2bar and one of the reasons i wont push Anchutz any more after seeing many with 16bar fluctuation and having to put it right- everything perfect.

    Make sure the bolts closed or the blue seal will be shot out never to be seen again.

    New Scope

    Nicks was bad, could have used at the time since i was used to Tascos. Looking through was like the Dragon rets on a film negative, Matts is really a good scope and rare. Which 18-40 there were various to 2005. EFR no one liked to use. Vari X 3 front focus 25 and 30mm tube! Vari X 3 side focus from 1997 VX3 side focus from Jan 2004 till June 2005 only know of 5 that existed + 2 done under his son Feb 2006 will have standard ret.

    Do you want me to piccy a GC2 reg. Its a switch like any of the other 3 regs commonly copied ie McGraw, Dawes and Alcock all from 1983 credit where its due not to the thieves.
  21. Jon

    OH YES .

    Any course would sort me out, aint shot since around May 2016 due to the clubs dismal boring plinking courses. Saying that did borrow a Steyr for HFT, quick run through the holders above 25 yards and on to their superb FT course. Couldnt see 7 way over the 210mm rule so took 5 extra standing. 27 won it only 3 more than me doing it HFT and only shot it once before and they think theyre good. How things can get changed out of all proportion in no time by the clique. Still got a video from 2 years ago shot in a gail. Its only a matter of time the pussys will be doing FT indoors in climate controlled conditions.

    Which 40 mag Mark 4 was that, seen both and used Matts better one for a couple of months. I do like the overall image of the Comp Series, EFR, Vari x 3, VX3 and genuine Mark 4's. In fact the Premier Ret Mark 4 i had was my preference to judge all other scopes against. Did have a butchers last year in wales at the big Leup and could tell straight away like the Vari x 3, VX3 and Mark 4 it dont like blue light.

    Which ones it blowing at, transfer port or bolt to barrel. Looking down the bolt should see a blue seal all to easy to shoot out when rifle bolts not closed. Any parts get them from Europe before Brexit. If parts not in stock in UK dont be surprised to be waiting 9 months on, the German way.

    Quite true Col, powers derived by the air volume non adjustable. Want more velocity a longer inserts made up. At least with the Sharp Innova (same rifle) you could alter the velocity.
  25. Jon

    OH YES .

    Think i am gonna have some real ale and drink it. Andy what you reckon, Skinners, Ludlow Gold and Abbotts should go down well, they can stick the IPA.
