  1. Which is best? HW97 or TX200HC

    tx looks to be made better I have tx200 mark2 but I like to shoot the 97k . I like the smooth stock and the long reach to the trigger on the 97k . I like the way you can decock tx200 as standard and still have the safety system . they are both nice in their own way
  2. Catapult issue

  3. Catapult issue

    As I undstand it , in the free land of the UK it is illegal to prepare to defend your self in your own home . If someone attacks you and you have a small piece of wood in your hand at the time by luck , you may be able to say I was tempted at the time to defend my self with this piece of wood I had in my hand , but if you have a bat or sword or such(catapult) by the front door or by your bed to defend your self against an intruder , your in trouble . You must always think about the heath and safety of the intruder FIRST while ... he ...she.... it..they ...are going about his business .
  4. Temperature and bands

    I dont know if it will be hard on the bands . It will slow every thing down .I hold my bands in my hand to keep them warm if I go walking about looking for something to shoot .
  5. Melting pot

    you part timer
  6. Power

    with a sling shot you are goverened by the speed of the elastic 200 to 250 ft per sec in the real world . so if you have weak bands you will only shoot 9 mm bbs at about 3 ft lbs if you shoot full butterfly you will get more power and speed , but with speed your bands will wear out quicker .If you have powerfull bands you will still shoot 9 mm bb at 3 ft lbs 200 . 250 ft per sec , but you will be able to shoot heavy ammo still at 200 250 ft per sec giving you more power . hope this makes sence .
  7. airgun forum?

    I gave up years ago never reregistered
  8. Mould for making ammo

    i have got the fishing weight mould 12mm .its ok but the ammo is not 100% round you have to tumble in a tin can to smooth them out a bit . I would think about a round bullet mould to get perfect round ammo .when i shoot 10mm and 12mm lead it is not as accurate as steel bbs . my lead shot is not perfectly round . I do not have a bullet mould but I do think about it from time to time . I shoot steel bbs
  9. Camaro fenix 400s .22

    my friend had one some years back . cheap , powerfull ,accurate
  10. thinking of letting the photon go

    i think you need something to spot things in the dark . like a NV monocular .
  11. WTF?

    it looks like someone has just destroyed a classic gun
  12. WTF?

    looking at the guns design I would think there is plenty of hammer spring to open the valve . I hope this is not drifting into powering up your air gun .
  13. Elastic slap

    as above you bands are to powerful or your ammo is to light
  14. 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 .
  15. 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 .
