      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

Who made this reg?

Recommended Posts

A Shamal up the club sprung a leak today so I've had a nose inside to see whats what. It turns out that some time in the distant past its been regged and its one of the reg O rings that is leaking. So have you chaps any idea who made this?

Hi Steve,

That was my Shamal.

Regged by Dave Welhan in Sept '93.

 

Cheers,

Chris

Certainly has . Sold it to Ron Crawford in about '94 when I got a RN10 Mk 2. As far as I know Ron used it from then onwards and it had never been serviced.

The reg in it is a Dave Welham one not an AA one.

 

Dave also cut the cylinder and action down as well at the same time ,basically making it a carbine . It improved the balance considerably, apparently he started doing this after making one for his daughter ??.

I bought Bazza's Shamal for Nikki to use and it was blindingly accurate for it's day, though a little too long as a rifle. Pretty sure it wasn't regged but it was very consistent. I seem to remember the trigger wasn't all that.

I had an olympic trigger on my NJR circa '92 it was an extra £100 and the only difference from a standard trigger unit was the highly polished straight blade, easiest £95 Bill Saunders ever made I reckon....:rolleyes:

Noway colin . yes the Olympic trigger was a bitch to adjust and took a couple of weeks to get right BUT once done it was as least as good or better than an EV2 trigger ??? HOLLY

Have to agree with you Holly, the Olympic trigger IMO was better than the RN10's.

No I'm talking about the shamal. I thought it was called the S300 after the shamal.

I thought that the Shamal came before the NJR , known as the '100' series the TM,SM,XM and the NJR.

 

The S300 was/is a single shot 'budget' sporter style rifle the forerunner to the 400. IIRC it had a very basic trigger mech.

As far as I can remember they took the CA100 , which as you correctly stated was a 10 mtr gun, and upped the power to 12 ft/lbs. Later it was re-branded as the RN 10 ( RN being Rob Nicholls who owned NSP Engineering where AA are based and the 10 for it's 10mtr heritage. The early ones had a barrel much longer than the cylinder and a muzzle break / weight not dis-similar to the FTP900's.

 

The rest is history as they say. We got the RN10 Mk 2 then a Mk3 reg and finally the Pro-Target FT which had the floating barrel from the factory and the famed or is that infamous Mk3 reg. I had a Mk 2 back in the day and quickly had one of Keith's lightweight shrouds put on it.

From there the EV's followed finishing with the current EV2 Mk V , ooops I meant the FTP900.

the first two regs were not repairable i think . personally i thought the MK 111 reg was OK . mr welham seems to think that reg was " borrowed " from his design . the FTP is just a overweight , tarted up EV2 .really AA should stick to sporting rifles ??? HOLLY

Was the Mk 3 reg not 'copied' / designed by Joe Korick in the states ?. I know that when Wayne serviced my PT, which has the Mk3 reg , he replaced a part sourced from Joe.

 

When my RN10 Mk 2 reg failed Bill Sanders just had a Mk 3 fitted FOC as they were out then. So you could be right that the earlier ones were not repairable.

Got a Ti cylinder on mine. It was John Walkers or possibly Rob's , either way it does make it balance better.

I'd guess that mine's a Mick Tronman one.
