Not until you have a properly balanced workshop hammer... the bigger the better.

Holly may not be some one to be one of your agents unless super glue repaires are needed or some one needs some one who is good with the use a metal detector to find some parts but he is the top trigger ajuster in the world so that is going for Holly.

In fact, so good that you broke your one?

And who could forget the 'bits left over' reassembly job on the Anschutz trigger? :rolleyes:

I remember in the world of archery when these amazing new CNC machined risers came in.

 

Previously the standard was to use a cast alloy riser that was then machined, drilled and tapped. New technology came along and manufacturers said how efficient CNC machines were, as they machined the riser from a billet of alloy, doing everything under computer control, so the machines could be left running 24 hours a day, with minimal human input.

 

They never did explain why the prices went UP!

CNC run time is not cheap About £45 per hour plus you have a wage to pay set up time plus a program to wright

Exactly for one off and low production individual parts could be looking the difference between £50 and £600 on something simple.

Why thank you, I'll print that out and stick it on my study wall to give me a little chuckle each morning... :)

 

At the end of the day it was just a a case of knowing that the was some accuracy in the FTP, it was just a case of getting rid of all the -rubbish- that AA put on it to stop the accuracy and finding the right pellet at the right velocity.

I know the reason for every single miss yesterday and none were down to the rifle, they were all pilot error, mostly giving too much wind when I should have had faith in the pellets and stayed in kill.

But, we live and learn, that's what this game is all about.... :)

 

Did you manage to find the circlip with the magnet?

Hmm, so you really are up a gum tree unless you can either persuade Jon to whip you up some out of titanium or sneak up on Mr Croucher, up end him and give him a good shake to dislodge all those Anschutz pins that he's rumoured to keep safe in his shreddies... :)

Now THAT would be worth watching.

Well, if Holly managed it then he would deserve a pin, but unfortunately the mind might be willing, but the reality would be something completely different.... :)
