  1. Nail some charge points to various trees around the course. Wire em to the generator...job done ;-)
  2. GP5 at Iceni...

    The easiest way to adjust it Holly, is with the rifle out of the stock. You'll get clear access to the grub screws that way. It WILL move when you put it back in the stock though....... I only know because I had the same idea. If the red dot coincided with the crosshair at my zero....all would be good. The -covered in gore- dot was never in the same place twice! And that was after I'd sorted the scope rail... Good luck
  3. GP5 at Iceni...

    They were doing this 15 yrs ago with scope.mounted lasers. Think it was tim finley in one of the comics explaining how to do it.Do keep up Bet the scope mounted one's didn't move around like the piece of short range -rubbish- installed in a Pulsar!Your red dot....Holly....will be a pale, fuzzy golf ball size blob at 50 yards if you can see it at all
  4. Pulsar ?

    I found three others that had the same issue. So it was definitely a fault. Denied by Daystate. There's an easier, cheaper fix than the rail though which I had done to mine before I sold it. Have the bottom of the holes in the rail countersunk and fit cs Bolts. It gets rid of the tolerance in the bolt holes if it's too big. There's nothing wrong with the barrel collar, it's the method of fixing the rail to it that was dodgy. Mine had too much clearance around the bolts allowing the rail to move regardless of how tight the bolts were. Simple countersunk in each hole mended it.
  5. Pulsar ?

    If you're getting one Holly. You'll need more moa than mine had. Mine was experimental and was milled too low....7 moa I think. Johno will mill whatever you want. I did do the sums (after i got the rail...and unaware that I could have specified moa) but all I can remember is it needed significantly more than mine had. Scope height on mine ended up around 3". I resolved it with adjustable mounts

  7. Indoor scope range finding.

    And yet, in the barns at Pete's Airgun Farm, under non natural light, almost every scope I've used ranges a good few yards differently to what they do in natural light. Setting zero at a known distance isn't a problem. 35 yards is still 35 yards light or dark. I'd personally avoid marking a scope wheel for ranges in non natural light. Although, having said that, it's not gonna matter much if you're a few yards out up to 35.

    That's why I like the bridge cameras. Ok they don't take as good pics and can be a bit noisy in low light unless using a low iso but you can have 28-400 in one package. As I always say, the camera is immaterial, it's the image that counts and an image is better than no image. This is where phone cameras are such a boon and a curse. When I used to.....i used a Hasselblad two n a quarter square, standard 80mm lens, a basic light meter and velvia 25 iso. It needed a tripod! For fun stuff I had a brace of OM2s. I dallied with a Hasselblad rangefinder (the one that could do 70mm wide frames in 35mm film) for a year. That was a long time ago when I got paid a lot more than I do now. I even submitted to 'Alamy'. I think I actually sold a grand total of three images. Life was good
  9. Holly's hip-Op....

    My wife had a hip replacement 17 months ago. She was up and walking with a frame the same day as the op. Home in a week and on crutches for three weeks followed by a walking stick for two weeks. He'll be fine..... Good luck though you old codger ?

    There was guaranteed to be something that 'moved'.
  11. So the 9015....

    If we're including rifles around the £2k mark (the daystate)......I wouldn't dismiss ISP. Individually hand made and built to your own spec' all included. Shaun also looks to make a very good job of sorting the FTP. A used one, bought then sent to be ISP'd, would put you around the 1500 quid mark, they also look like an FTP should've look from the factory... 'If' I were in the market.......;-)
  12. Hoping to see spurs and a big shiny badge, Wyatt...I'll have to see if the wife will let me wear it outside Colin..........
  13. It kinda snowed all afternoon but wasn't really cold. I was warm enough. I don't envy those shooting tomorrow....looks 'challenging'. I shall be your Marshall for the day ? Enjoy ?
  14. The Tsar....

    I just have negative history with Daystate and am bitter and twisted lol. You and me both Darren.The simple facts are that Daystate want (and have mostly got) the premium airgun market....the shiny 'showpiece' indoor plinkers toys. I got suckered in and it cost me dear The fact there are some excellent shooters using Daystate air rifles shouldn't really say anything about Daystate. They are simply very good shooters and would be/are, with any air rifle. Wait until the rebranded 'Attaman' (that's all it is....Daystate didn't design it, develop it or manufacture it) goes wrong and watch the customer support evaporate.
  15. I want to strip

    Again? That toaster does take a beating.And the top edge of his sofa......
