1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Get some alkanet oil on there if your stock is quite “red”.

    Or try some stains.

    bear in mind it will darken quite a bit with just linseed oil.

    Good job either way, I’m glad you “took the plunge”. I am sure you will able to get a pretty decent match. :thumb:

    Thanks :)

    I've tidied up any remaining bits of paint and as it happens I found a rogue bottle of Alkanet hiding away from all the other gear I've lost, so banged a coat of that on and am waiting for it to dry.

    Will hopefully get another coat on tonight then tomorrow(?) can crack on with the joys of wet-flatting with linseed and finally oiling with the trade secret stuff, if I eventually find it :facepalm:

    Won't be a perfect match but already looks so much better :)

    Nice looking rifle buddy and as much as I like "old skool/classic" I wouldn't be ashamed to "own/be seen/hunt" with one myself... :thumb:

    @Shoto1 - "Great ass" ;)

    @TORNADOS7 - cheers dude!

    The first coat of alkanet finally became dry enough to not sully my white background, so I took a couple of shots - this is how it stood before I chucked on another coat in the hope that it'll soak in / dry overnight:

    As can be seen / might be expected the first coat made an enormous difference, while the second has maybe made it a touch darker but not by a lot. As it stands the wood's a reasonable colour match with the stock on the gun, even if the grain pattern is substantially different. So far I'm really pleased with how it's turning out and I'm very much looking forward to (eventually) getting it fitted once it's finally finished :)

    Ta! (so far :p)

    So, not a lot's happened since my last post.. the 2nd coat of Alkanet was still a little wet in the morning so I don't think the wood will take a whole lot more. I won't be able to work on it for 3-4 days so might just bang on another coat and leave it for this time to do what it will, then maybe start on the wet flatting and oiling-proper.

    I think I'm going to sand the upper faces smooth but not bother filling the grain as this will be more difficult and time consuming than the outer surface, plus won't really be seen.

    Wish I could find my bloody box of bits :(

    "Finally the gun was reassembled and tested. So you may ask, what benefits have this work brought?

    The two big ones are improved air efficiency and reduced sensitivity to pellet mass.

    As received the rifle gave me 80 shots from 200bar down to around 90bar. This works out at a pressure drop of around 1.38 bar per shot, for around 85 shots per charge. I've only put 40 shots through the gun so far but the on-board gauge is indicating a pressure drop from 200bar of around 30-35bar; suggesting air usage of between 0.75 and 0.88 bar per shot. This would translate into around 130 - 155 shots per charge; an improvement of between 50 and 80% over the gun in its "as received" state."


    Hi Mike:

    Very detailed information, your findings are quite interesting!

    You mention that you left the regulator setting pretty much as it came from the factory at around 85 BAR and that your only modification was to swap the transfer port from 2.2mm to 4.0mm...Am I understanding you correctly in the sense that this port swap increased your shot count from around 85 shots to about 130-155?
    Or did you make other modifications like enlarging the plenum, increasing hammer weight/decreasing strike energy, etc.?

    I have a similar tuning (85 BAR and 4mm Port) on my LG-110 with no other mods and I get 85 shots with JSB 8.4's...I did much testing for the most efficient 11.5 ft./lb. setting with JSB 8.4's, I have played with the reg from 70 BAR to 110 BAR using the hammer strike energy to keep the same velocity for all BAR settings...

    I machined the Delrin seat and there is zero reg creep which was an issue with the gun since new, this improvement reduced the velocity spread considerably.

    The shot count (efficiency) at all settings has been negligible with no more than about 5 shots + or - per fill...Since I wanted to tune the gun at the knee so when it goes off thee regulator the velocity doesn't go up while still getting 2-4 good shots, I actually ended like you did at 85 BAR and a 4 mm transfer port ...At this setting I get 85 very good shots with a max spread of 4-5 fps (weighing pellets)...The reg goes off at around the 82nd-83rd shot and I still get 2-3 very good shots but after the 85th shot the velocity starts to drop.

    My gun has the standard tube, did your gun came with thee LONG air cylinder?

    Best regards,

    AZ

    Thanks and nice work :)

    That's very odd about your shot count as your rifle sounds both properly setup and the same as mine. To clarify with mine, the changes made were to fit the port and back the striker off to suit, while leaving the reg pressure setting at 85bar.

    My rifle has the shorter cylinder but longer (550mm) barrel; however I doubt the difference in barrel length would account for the difference in shot count between the two guns.

    I'm using 7.9gn Air Arms (JSB) Express through mine; although the Exacts your using should give you mire efficiency if anything. IIRC the output of mine's a bit less (around 11.3ftlb I think) but again I can't see this making an enormous amount of difference.

    Have you tried backing the striker off further to see if muzzle energy falls with reduced striker energy?
