Converting to .177 - worth it ?

    These last few weeks with no internet access I've been thinking about changing over to .177 - everything I already have is in the larger .22 calibre.

    My questions are, how easy would it be to convert them over to .177 and would it be worth it ?

    For the record, I only have one rifle where this is possible - a BSA Supersport. I know that I'll need a new barrel and I'm fitting it out with a gas ram - is this all that needs to be done or is there more ?

    James.

    Hi Paperbag Writer

    I think that a gas ram and new barrel would cover it, I cant see anyother reason why it wouldnt work, It is what I would have done

    Good luck

    Hi PW, It seems straight forward enough to me.
    When you fit the gas strut,I'm interested to know how it is secured at the rear.
    On my 80 there is a diameter reduction on the end which sits inside the hole in the end block.Yours might have a thrust plate instead
    Cheers. PS
