    pistol target grip

    Does any memeber know where i mught get a target pistol grip made, for a reasonable cost. . I have a great pistol with a general grip.The pistol is far too good to waste, & i entend to use it for competition use. Thanks

    Airsporter Piston Mod?

    Its a while since i messed with an airsporter, if i rmember the seal plate detaches & the seal is attached with a rivet ?? or is that the relum ! we used to get a piece of old leather, simmer it in graphite greese, then using dads socket on a piece of wood to punch a seal out & drill & tapp the seal block & attach it with a countersunk 6mm & washer, then use a tapered reamer to open the port up a mm or so, leaving it tapered for flow, from the inside, use lapping paste to polish the barrel inside,with a rag on a steel rod in a drill , ox spring & assemble with graphite greese & boy oh boy..did the pellets fly out. :D try Chambers or TR Rob http://www.gunspares.co.uk/shopdisplayprod...SA+Airsporter+S http://www.trobb.f9.co.uk/Specialist%20Parts%20Page.html

    SANDING BACK VARNISH STOCK & STAINING

    I use either nitromorse to strip the wood , or take it to a local pine wood stripper (usually £3-4, if he charges !) clean well after in the bath with warm water , then place it in the airing cupboard to sweat out any dents ,bruises etc.. sand it when it dries out, finishing off with wire wool , then wipe it over a few times with teak oil..place it in the airing cupboard again, & a few more coats of teak oil , before lightly finishing off with a plastic pan scrubber & rag..put the wood back on the gun. Happy days :D

    Guess The Gun

    Nice to see some great engineering & ideas comming out.. i always wonder, how do you make a stock ?? there must be a tool or machine in the somewhere ! Or a lot of patience & hours spare great rifles bud.

    Paint a stock DPM style Camo

    I did some free hand also with brown, carky green, sandstone, & a 1/2" brush starting with an all over green, & breaking in a few strokes of sand & brown. The effect was ok, by me ..personally i wouldnt do it like that on a nice treasured gun, this was on my old field shotgun..did the job fantastico. your looks pro better ATB

    HW45 tune kit & spares?

    To tune you need more cylinder capacity, more barrel length,slightly larger port, smooth action ?? where from??

    Air rifle trajectory...

    From elsewhere ......but intresting What this means is that while ballistic computer plots of air rifle rounds are useful as starting points, complex second-order aerodynamic factors begin to dominate at the higher ranges and velocities -- that is, much beyond 60 yards. Also, wind deflection alone can double group size from 50 to 70 yards. But wait -- can I even hit the 3-inch "kill zone" of my target out to 70 yards? Certainly not from a standing position. However, when shooting hares, I will almost certainly be either sitting, or probably even lying down. But even using a bipod, will any air rifle shoot that accurately out to 75 yards? In the field I can realistically put three out of four shots inside a 2-inch circle from the seated position at 50 yards. If the pellets' flight continued perfectly, that would result in a 3-inch circle at 70 yards. But perfection never happens. Robert Beeman, (founder of Beeman Precision Air Rifles in California) believes that down-range pellet instability is primarily caused by two factors: First, any random tipping of the pellet as its skirt loses final contact with the edge of the muzzle; and second, the imperfect distribution of the pellet's mass about its spinning axis. In both cases the pellet can begin to wobble more -- and then less -- and then more again -- during its flight. This wobble becomes more acute the faster and the further the pellet travels. Combine this with the minute shot-to-shot variations of power and it becomes easy to see why even with the best high-powered, long range air rifles, perfection is unattainable. This brings us to the next consideration -- "terminal ballistics"--the effect of the pellet on the target. Chart 5 shows us that the energy the two rounds carry at two different power settings. The reason the 5mm loses energy slightly faster is that its ballistic coefficient (BC) is less -- 0.0300 vs. 0.0340 for the .22-cal.. This is almost always the case, that larger pellets have better BCs than smaller ones. In the case of the Premier, Jim Baumann believes the cause has to do with a pellet's length which has been optimized for long range. What is interesting about this chart is that, although the 5mm Premier pellet leaves the muzzle with more energy than the .22-cal H&N Barracuda, because the Barracuda has a slightly better BC, loses energy less rapidly. But think on this: By increasing power above the Theoben optimum, how much range and extra energy are we really gaining? Yet it is not energy but "lethality" that we seek. What is the difference? Firstly, let us go to the sight-in range of 60 yards. Of course the 5mm round is traveling a lot faster than the heavier .22. And the equation for energy is well-known: E= mv2/2. In other words, increasing the velocity just a bit results in a whopping increase in energy. But there's a major snag. In my experiments shooting into an animal flesh simulator (Ivory soap), I discovered that a .177-cal Hobby pellet penetrates 7.5 to 8-inches when carrying 15 lbs-ft of energy. A .22-cal Hobby pellet only penetrates 5 to 6 inches with the same energy. The reason for that should be clear. The .22-cal pellet must clear out a wider wound channel per inch of penetration. Indeed, with these experimentally derived figures, the .22-cal creates a short, fat wound channel with a volume of 0.19 cubic inches, while the.177-cal pellet creates a long skinny wound channel of 0.185 cubic inches -- in other words the same wound channel volume -- an amazingly close experimental confirmation (and a great advantage of using Ivory soap for these tests). Now here's the high-velocity catch: Shooting both of these pellets into a critter with a diameter of only 2.5-inches means both pellets will exit the animal -- and carry with them unspent energy. But the .22 will have dropped off half its energy in this example. Since it can penetrate 5 inches, and exits after half that distance, so it has used up half its energy or 7.5 lbs-ft. The .177-cal pellet can penetrate three times as far, so it will exit with 2/3rds of its energy intact. It will have dropped off only 1/3 of its energy, or 5 lbs-ft. Thus the fatter .22-cal pellet will have delivered 50% more energy to the target; energy that is, of course, more destructive, or more "lethal." (Of course, these depths are theoretical in that they apply to Ivory soap which may or may not be an accurate flesh simulator. If the pellet hits bone, a lot more of its energy is transferred to the animal -- in most cases, all of it.) But there's more to the energy story. This over-penetration gave me the idea for a real hollowpoint pellet -- an egg cup design that would really open up. The result was Dr. Beeman's Crow Magnum hollowpoint pellet. It will double in caliber inside a varmint and almost never exits the critter. However the 5mm Crow Magnum hollowpoint BC is only 0.0263 at 900 fps. So you will have to experiment to see if the higher lethality of the Crow Magnum pellet is worth its slightly lower efficiency.

    Bluing solution

    To get the right finish, its all down to the buffing & polishing of your barrel or what ever in the first place, then you need to get an even temp, across the lenth of your steel,(hot ,but not too hot,goes yellow ,then blue/black... then place your item in hot oil, (the older the better) for a hour or 3,this process in oil can be repeated... then wipe up & hey presto. check out the correct temps,(cannot remember to hand,but its hot.. to get the good result. hope this gives you an insight.. i was in engineering for 20yrs, it takes a but of skill,to get it right.. if not sure dont attempt, as it can warp your steel !! regards...

    DIY silencer?

    try it , the more chambers the better, use any thing, welding mesh,washers ,springs, jay cloth, attic insulation, just try it & test. its part of the fun !! :huh:
