hi Matt

i have enjoyed this journey with you & your TX  :thumbs:

its nice to see a member giving a forgotten rifle a new lease of life.the stock looks great buddy you have done a good job.

 

regarding delrin guides give SFS a ring in west Bromwich or Dave Hall in Sheffield, they are both capable of turning a guide out for you,but they would probably need your spring to,custom make the guide to fit the spring.

 

i am sure i have a spare guide in my man cave which you are welcome to,next time i am in there i will take a look for it :thumbs:

Thanks davy I've got the bug big style for restoring sure there will be another project soon and when I started never expected this outcome so made up. Really appreciated all the help from members along the way and words of wisdom.
If you got a spare guide that would be fantastic I would obviously pay you for it and postage but if not il try them you reccomended . Thanks bud

Areas I polished up (wasn't been arti farty with pic just how it came out)
All back together redy to go back in gun

To be honest I really wasn't expecting much from doing this but what a transformation the trigger is so smooth the 2nd stage especially made the trigger pull so much lighter like 10x lighter just a tiny squeeze on 2nd stage and fire!!!
I highly recommend doing it its a bit fidly but just took my time and it payed off don't really know what more is left to do on it now its smooth as hell in every respect not blowing my own trumpet but so proud of this project.
While gun was in bits I took the oil and scouring pad to stock again much happier with the finish now no roughness at all and really brought the grain out......

Very pleased with how it shoots power is still settling down but stayed in 11.4s today put around 400 pelets through it and not missed a beat did not like accupel or rws super h point at all .
