  1. Elastic slap

    as above you bands are to powerful or your ammo is to light
  2. Webley Eclipse

    you will have to get a rubbish tx200 hw97 or a hw77 now , have you thought about if you want your new gun in silver or black .
  3. Webley Eclipse

    I have a webley omega I think it has the same trigger as the eclipse . my trigger has been a bit of a problem I did solve the problem by beating one trigger componante a little but a bit of dieseling one day brought back the trgger problem . I think the piston slammed back into the trigger mechanism smoothing the bumps I made with a hammer . To solve the problem for now I noticed the piston was a very loose fit and not fully engaging the trigger mechanism when cocking the gun so by buttoning the piston I have tightened the piston in the cylinder all is fine for now . I feel this trigger is a little weak but the gun does shoot fine I have also shot an eclipse that shot fine , but dont diesel the gun and ask about the trigger . If you take the trigger out look at every thing closely it is a little tricky to replace .

    almost I would say ..the same position ... was correct but your eye should be looking down the center of the scope every time .

  9. Scope for spring air rifle

    I would say perfect . big powerfull scopes are a bit of fun on a pcp but on a spring gun they get a bit much 3 x 9 x 40 with a mil dot is all you need and maybe as big as you want to go .

    did not like the handy place the milbros have to place your thumb . I had been shooting catupults a few years before I saw a milbro catapult . Us kids made our own catapults and after shooting my thumb a few times I worked out that you dont want your thumb in the middle of the fork .
  11. Catapult elastic

    3/16 or 1/4 that was the question I got mine from a model shop . 1/4 seemed a bit to heavy . My cycle shop sold pellets and fireworks never thought to ask about rubber . I think square rubber can be found on ebay but I would think if you knew of square rubber in a local shop your maybe not to good with ebay . tube works fine instead of square .I spent my early years in perth W.A we used something we called jelly rubber round solid .I think it streched better than the square rubber and was jelly like .I think tubes may work better than the old square rubber .rolyan orange or green tube I will GUESS is like orange =3/16 green =1/4 . rolyan make stronger and weaker tube but you will make some thing out of orange or green ok .
  12. Best Cattie For A Beginner

    I have tryed this with heavy heavy flat bands trying to shoot heavy lead 12mm + and bbs 14mm+ trying to get a lot of power . Getting the ammo to move 230 ft per second + but no accuracy I dont think the heavy draw was the problem I feel the bands get choked up in the forks and the ammo gets moved of target . I will have to try lighter flat bands at some point .
  13. Is this rabbit activity?

    is there any rabbit sh.t . thats a give away
  14. Best Cattie For A Beginner

    nightmare getting into shooting my black widow again . I used to stick something big ammo wize in my black widow and shoot instinctively with standard bands . my black widows then got turn into sling bow experiments but never thought to put lighter bands on the black widow . Aiming with lighter bands is very good ....As above theraband can wear out quickly but if the bands are made well and the catapult is smooth with NO sharp or ruff edges and you only shoot ball bearings they can last a long time .. but i have had a rething about black widows , they would have to be a good first catapult for sure and maybe all you need with a bit of experimenting . If one was to put a hole in the center of the pouch on a set of standard bands to line up the ammo that would help . I may have done this at some time but will have just shot heavy ammo or marbles or rocks .
