Tench tuned and regulated BSA Ultra in action

Recommended Posts

Hi Jasper,

 

I've heard that you can now buy the reg from Tench and fit it yourself if you want.

 

I'm not very good with rifles mate so I had it done by Tench plus quite a few other tweaks.

 

If your good with taking them apart then you should be ok I think.

 

The reg and the fitting it is £120 and I paid an extra £40 to £50 for the other tunes etc.

 

Well worth it in my opinion.

 

Si

 

spot on Si cheers for the info :thumbs:

 

Must admit I fancy like having a pop myself if he makes them for a Daystate Air Ranger! mind you £120 or perhaps a little more wouldn't be that bad. where is the guy based Si? just a rough idea of what county will do mate or if he has a Number you could PM it to me if its ok :thumbs:.

 

If I can get this gun running more consistant from a full charge to top up I will be made up, at the moment I have lost a bit of interest in the bloody thing.

Hi lads,

 

Thanks for the nice comments.

 

Hi Davy,

 

I have taken some photos for you buddy which should help answer your questions as I’m not very technical with rifles as you know I just shoot them buddy.

 

The regulator is 3.5 cm so will extend your cylinder by 3.5 cm, not your barrel mate.

 

Tench told me that the regulator can be pumped / charged to 250 bar easily.

 

This gives me 65 to 75 full power shots from a full charge in .177 and 90 ish from .22 I believe.

 

I chrono-ed my rifle a few days ago and it was doing an 11.83 ft/lbs average over a 10 shot string.

 

The MAXIMUN shot deviation was only 3 fps between shot 1 and 10 which was pretty amazing and just shows the regs quality.

 

The pellets were washed and lubed Bisley Magnums at 10.5 grain.

 

Normally a full charge of around 190-ish bar gives the Ultra 30 very good usable full power shots in .177 without a regulator using the sweet spot technique.

hi buddy

thanks buddy,so it sits internaly then,just like the BT one i took out!

it was playing up so took it out and replaced the resivoir with a standard karbine one.

may think about having it done,but just have polished hammer & rail on the AAS410K.and next project is to polish trigger sears & replace crinkle washers!!

 

after polishing the hammer & rail i got my PB in the local HFT course of 52 :thumbs:

so i will say it goes to polish youe hammer & rail :thumbs:
