    re bluing

    De-greasing well and washing after,dry of in the oven before blueing. wear clean rubber gloves do not touch cleaned surface with bare hands and really lay it on ,cover well. Wash of exces after about 5 mins. Dry of well again and apply oil to set the blue if you consider that the blueing is to your satisfaction.

    S16s conversion

    Has any one ever tried to change the position of the 400cc air bottle on an S16s Logun to a belt holster, and use a hose similar to those that are used for filling to connect the bottle to the gun The butt could be manufactured using alliuminium section cutting the actual physical wieght quite considerably, but probably quite difficult to get fitted. If any one has any ideas or tried anything like this I would be glad for any input, thanks

    Changing barrels .22 to .177

    Changing barrels .22 to .177

    Changed the barrel eventualy, but as "Fluffybuck" posted it did drop power greatly so much so I returned it to its former self, now waiting for gas strut to fit, all resdy fitted one in the .177 shooting very smooth after coping with recoil, no coughtwang just a straight forward crack. I,ve yet to team up with my mate and take it out, I would like to stand slightly down range to here the effect of "UK Neil,s" new internals and mods to the built in silencer, looking forward to that.

    Cadet Major Refresh

    While you have the piston out you would be quids in if you could get the piston tube honed, if you dont have one to hand, go to a mower service center and ask if they could do it for you. Clean all the residue from inside the tube first and maybe just 5 or 6 full insertions of the honer will do the trick, all the burr,s and little high spots will be taken out

    I will make the change just to actualy see the difference and record changes on chrono, thanks for all technical info that you have both given me I will post info when I eventualy get to do it, Thanks
  13. I have just got hold of a .22 BSA Lightning, while it is a cracking gun, I did originally want a .177. Also I have just aquired a .177 barrel would it be a matter of just a straight swap or are there other issues to take into consideration, i.e. spring, piston etc.

    I for one have used cold blueing and as yet can't fault it, as far as promoting rust I don't know ?. Go for it, have a go you'll be supprised at the finish, it's really quite good. Get the kit first and follow the instructions, dont deviate and you will be glad you tried
