  3. Air Rifle

    Micky I don't know if you use facebook but there's several groups on there that only deal with the 22** range of Crosman's, Ratcatcher, Rabbitstopper etc, they rework the Ratties to get the power up to respectable (But legal) outputs as they come from the factory set quite a bit lower than the legal limit, You get a few less shots but the stopping power is better Here's two that I had, I still have the longer black one but the silver polished one went in a trade for an 'As New' BSA Airsporter mk6 Both had better breeches than they came from the factory with, Proper eye relief for scope users comes from the replacement breeches as the scope can be mounted directly to the dovetail on the breech rather than having pro blox fitted to the barrel and needing a Giraffe neck to be able to get close enough to the ocular bell! The top one has a 24" barrel from a 2260 Rabbitstopper fitted but it's a bit unwieldly so i'll swap back tio the orignal barrel.. Good luck with your quest, I really would recommend getting a Rattie (XL maybe) with a steel breech, It's so much better to use when you're not craneing your neck to get a sight picture through a scope that's too far for'ard!! By the way, If you do buy new or standard, The gun will most likely only be doing 8-9ft lbs John

    Oooh! That early 97 looks the biz!! John
  5. " Show us your guns " !

    I've had that one for a lot of years Mac! That extra few inches of moderator makes a hell of a difference to the standard one, It quietens the muzzle report fully but then the bang of the hammer hitting home is heard!, There's a mod for that though, It's to epoxy thin rubber on to the face of the hammer! John
  6. " Show us your guns " !

    A couple more.. A couple of HW77's, Top one is a 1983 mk1, Bottom is a later one but fitted to a HW97 stock.. Walther LG55t HW95 on an early HW85 stock! Highly tuned Chinese copy of a Crosman 160, Shoots spot on! Diana mod 27 Export BSA Meteor mk2 Webley Falcon A couple of Jackal sidelevers, Top one is Air Arms, Bottom is earlier Sussex Armouries. Chinese 'Trigon', Won this in a raffle!, It's a nice little youths gun.. John
  7. Old Ally Ctties..

    Thinking about it, I have a set of Bonsai tools which includes some strange shaped cutters!! John
  8. " Show us your guns " !

    Sorry mate, I've no idea, It was onthe gun when I bought it Hi Mark, I like the Stealths as they're dead basic (Less to go wrong!), Also, This 1970 Venom tuned and blued HW35 is uber smooth to cock and shoot, I found the gawjuss Luxus stock on Facfebook for £40! A few more faves! Ha ha ha!!, I think I just spoilt it a bit more!! John
  9. " Show us your guns " !

    A few of these are elsewhere now as I traded some!, Also sold one that was leaking badly, Had to sell it (Logun S10) for a hundred quid less that I paid for it as it was leaking from the day I bought it! (It's crap being mutton Jeff!) BSA 'Long Toms' Some multi pumpers (American and Japanese) My fave Webbo's.. Some projects Some little uns A couple of Gunpower Stealths A couple of Shinsung Careers German Original mod 50, I've four in total but one is in bits! I've some more but it will take too long, I'll have to get more group shots one day John
  10. Old Ally Ctties..

    Hi I have some naturals that I collected whilst chopping back overgrown hazel hedges in my back garden!!, Collected a heap more since!! Also have a mould that will produce five 10mm lead balls at a time, Trouble is that I need to make a bespoke sprue cutter as ordinary side wire cutters cut in to the ball as the sprues are very short!! John
  11. Tatty Old Airgun Section

    Hi Comanche The older one in bits looks like my Diana mod27Export, Mine has no markings, I was told they were acid etched which invariably wears off!! Mine even has the cracks in the same spot on the stock!, Mine was 'converted to O ring on the piston head and resprung with an ox spring by a so called 'Gunsmith' it was shooting extremely low pwered, Something like 2ft lbs as the O ring was the wrong size! I put my finger over the transfer port and pushed the piston down the cylinder with a large screwdriver, There was absolutely no resistance!, A 20mm x 2mm O ring had been fitted, I fitted a 20mmx2.5 or 3mm (Can't remember exactly!) but the piston wouldn't travel down the cylinder with the TP covered!, It rose to a little over 6ft lbs straight away but is losing compression now through the breech seal!! This is the gun, Everything was larupped in grease too This is the ph conversion, The O ring was doing nothing! Look at all dat Grease!! Crack closed well on one side Not so well on tuther.. I actually bought some 1" leather parachute seals to put the piston seal back to how it should be, Not got round to it yet!! I bought the nickel plated Gem from the melbourne vintage gun fayre a few weeks ago, It's lovely from this side, No so at the other side though!, It wouldn't push a pellet out of the barrel at first as the leather seal was dry as a nuns wotsit, A few drops of oil through the transfer port saved opening it up anbd it shoots quite well now for such and old thing!! John
  12. Stirrup Pump

    Hi Speaky There's some on Fleabay for forty three and a half quid (With 49p P&P) Quick delivery too as their warehouse is in the UK, Brilliant pump! I've bought one to pump up my fenman that was shooting at 18ft lbs so I let some air out, It's down to 8ft lbs now!! I tried the pump on my PP700 pistol and it did the job well John
  13. Airforceonepcppump

    Hi I bought one of these last week off fleabay, Put an offer in and got it for a tad under £38 Only tried it on my PP700 PCP Pistol and it pumped it up very quickly but it only has a small cylinder!! I actually bought it to pump up my Fenman as it was doing 18ft lbs , I let some air out with a taps on the schrade valve, Tested it again, It was doing just 8ft lbs!! I think it will sort the Fenman out, I prefer my rifles closer to 11 than 12ft lbs , BTW, These pumps are actually in the UK and only take a few days to arrive, They also come with two or three sets of spare seals and a pack of filters to stop moisture/debris going in to the guns John
  14. Hi all Here's a pic of my three old aluminium catties, The smaller one I always had one as a kid, I always had a right thumb the shape of a frying pan as every other shot hit me on it!! I threw it away every time but always retrieved it The Warden in the middle was made by Harrisons (Makers of the Gat gun!!) and the at the right is a Milbro 'Magapult' for fishing, Don't think they were very popular though! I took a large Hawthorne down in the back garden on tuesday, Got a small pile of natural forks from it!! John

    How many you got now? And where the f'k do you keep them all... According to the spreadsheet i've got a hundred and fifty one but i've more that need work, Haven't counted them though I have a box room where they're all kept, It took me an hour and a half to get them all out (And put them all back when i'd found the ones I was looking for!) a couple of weeks ago I think i'm at the point now where i've had enough!! I'm going to sort through what I really want to keep, The rest will be going on Free ads or some similar site Here's a list..
