    So You Want A Gary Cane Bull Pup ?

    I thought you had a Steyr action in the GC stock already?
  3. Sounds like a head to head and with the cold a worthy Winter League fixture....

    Anschutz Service Kit

    Agreed, I even made tentative enquires about getting spares and offering them to UK competition shooters as the situation is so ridiculous and it was an emphatic nein!.

    Big bad Dave might be staging a come-back...

    No apparently he's given it to you along with his uncle's spare teeth...

    Anschutz Service Kit

    Yep they're pretty good kits and considering that Anschutz UK/Ruag don't seem to want to help UK users of their products he provides a valuable service.

    On a fitness regime again are we in preparation for Christmas...🤣
  9. Well, there always has to be one weak link, still I’m sure you’ll give it your best shot mate...🏆

    8002 shutz ?

    Thought he’d already sold it to be honest.

    As the Eagles always said you can check out but never leave, that's FT...

    Sounds like a burger bet if ever I heard one...

    He’s bought the Pro-Target and is looking at a 20-50 to top it off, so hopefully we’ll see him down at Springfield after Christmas if not before.
  14. So, Schultz/March 60 time or have you bottled it and headed for Steyr sanctuary already? Bear in mind that Sunday will be 3 degrees rising to 7 at the most....👍

    Anschutz Service Kit

    Sounds good Rob especially as the trigger unit is supposed to be £400 on it’s own, reg £100 etc. They also do a ‘kliene’ kit which is just the essential o rings, springs etc for about £110. Myself I just get one of Andy Pearson’s excellent Anschutz o ring kits for about £12 on Fleabay...👍

    I think he wants to start cheap and take it from there, so hence the EV or Pro-Target route.

    Not that 2002, that was the one I bought off Stuart that had the WE stock. My best 2002 was the blue one with the x40 comp., that was the best one.

    The Shutz Barrel

    I think you've come to the 'gimp wins' conclusion every Wednesday for the past year....

    The Shutz Barrel

    Correct though the bonding wasn't always great, I cut the shroud off one one my 2002's and found huge voids between the barrel and outer shroud, plus the two weren't concentric which didn't help. If it's done properly with air properly purged then you'll end up with a light and supremely rigid barrel, something which is only a dim memory for Holly....
  20. Sounds like a plan, a bit like inflight refuelling I like....

    Anschutz Tinkering....

    Always interested in lubes, however this looks suspiciously like FP10, plus with the forces and clearances we deal with any liquid based lube will always be inferior in my experience.

    Anschutz Tinkering....

    So I like Anschutz target rifles of all flavours, had a couple of small-bore ones and in PCP guise a few 2002's and more recently a 9003. I think I like the trigger and cycle the best, it's like putting on your favourite slippers and settling down infront of the telly to watch re-runs of Holly's best howling misses at GP's but anyways I digress.... So technical stuff. You pull the trigger and it goes bang right? But what if you can make it go bang more consistently and actually improve on what you get from the manufacturer. Mine is a Jon Harris conversion from 6 to 12fpe and having taken it to bits in order to replace all the o-rings as shock horror they degrade over time, I can attest to Jon's superb engineering with all the extra little bits and bobs that he shoe-horns in there to make it work at double it's intended power level. But, I'm a tinkerer, a designer by trade and I need to understand stuff, any stuff, how black holes work, but especially how I can improve PCP's to be more consistent in this tightly stretched envelope that we subject them to called Field Target shooting. After titting about with barrels and specifically barrel and pellet treatments my latest fad is lubes, not the stuff that Holly keeps under his pillow but real lube for guns. I've always struggled with my rifles due to the fact that I like shooting Winter League and that means cold, wet and more cold usually. All of this causes the lubes in the rifles to change, usually for the worse with regard to performance. So it has been my recent quest to try and find the holy grail and find a lube that is completely inert to temperature and I believe I have found it. More later....

    So....round 4 of the Winter League at ETL

    I'd get there before the bin men if I were you as they've become a bit partial to the Moet leftovers in the bottles...
  24. Just over a week to go and the fun and games switch to ETL. Looks like it's going to be a cold one if the forecast stays as it is, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see snow.

    It's the old story that pretty much any sorted rifle will shoot similar for what we want from them.
