V-Mach or Maccari tune kit HW35
Posted 25 January 2009 - 05:18 PM
I'm looking for a tune kit for my HW35 and was wondering if anyone has a preference and why good or bad between V-Mach or Maccari.

Jim Maccari kits are a bit cheaper, i believe. Like i said, i'm very happy with V-Mach so i would recomend them.

also bear in mind that buying from the u.s. with the current exchange rates u.s. goods may not be such a bargain.

I then plucked up the courage and decided to strip the rifle, this was so easy and it is the later synthetic version, the breech seal also looks old.
Put it back together and still showing the same power so I'm glad it went back together ok.
Do you think that the full tuning kit is going to help.

its good and above all its British mate
In an old 35 youd expect 10 ish
was it the old leather seal?
whack a V-Mach in it mate, treat yourself , sort your power and support British enginerring

Do you think that the V Mach will make a difference.

originally it was a .22 and initial testing after fitting made it a little hot(but very very smooth) so i had to remove the washers and all was ok.

I will let you know how I get on, my only concern is knowing which parts to lube and how much

Just finished fitting my V-Mach kit and must have read the instructions for over a week, I did everything as per the instructions and just put it back together and tried a test fire and it fells so much better and sounds better, so thought i better try over my chrono as I fitted two washers and the nylon spacer.
Before it was showing approx 9.5 and now 3.2 to 3.8 I have no idea what is wrong, I did also change the breach seal the only thing I was not happy with was how tight the piston washer was.
I have tried about 50 pellets and no change it just starts to go up and then back down.
I'm so fed up now
There is no smell or smoke when fired.

I V-mached my cherished old HW35e last year (see thread 36228) and the results were wonderful - although I haven't chrono'd it since the tune. I dropped in a V-mach kit, plus cleaned, polished and lubed everything properly and also added some Maccari old school buttons to remove metal to metal contact and made mainspring shim out of PTFE sheet. Also stripped and tidied up the lovely walnut stock and treated it with tung oil while I was at it. Felt recoil reduced and no discernable twang.
