  1. The original piston heads were aluminium, BSA changed them to nylon at some point. Each one I have repaired, the nylon piston head was swollen and jammed in the cylinder. The answer was to replace it with an aluminium one. Phosphor bronze might be too heavy, although you probably have one of the most expensive piston heads in existence 😂. As Old'un suggested, sometimes a stronger spring isn't the best answer to the quest for more power.
  2. I have an old Webley Falcon, .22 flavour CW red/green illuminated reticle 3- 9 x 40 scope. The air rifle is probably due some TLC, I have replaced the barrel latch spring recently as the breech popped open when fired. It has the most amazing recoil for an air rifle, I keep meaning to take it apart to investigate the spring inside. If you're interested £50?
  3. If I'm not too late... BB's are .175" the pellets are .177", that's a fairly good reason why they fall out of the barrel 😉😁

  6. If they can't I can... All i need is the dimensions 😊
  7. I have a Webley "Ranger" in .177 flavour if you want it. It is a child's air rifle, which you have for free if it helps, you'll need to collect it though 😉

    If you're anywhere near Suffolk, I think Simpsons of Newmarket sell stoeger air rifles
  9. Yes thanks, it's a Milbro. I have asked a friend who will know, it's just a matter of whether he will tell me 😉
  10. HI, I don't I'm afraid. T.J. Harrington used a weird thread in the Gat Gun and certainly not a standard thread. I suspect that Diana used a metric thread but a standard one, I presume they were also .177? I would be happy to make you one if we can find out what thread they used, I'm going to guess M5 x 0.8 for now. If anyone here knows, please feel free to post the information, Thank you 😃
  11. Hi All, Based on a pellet prodder on one of my Gat Guns, I've made some of these up. There are some shorter finger pieces and longer ones for those "fuller fingers." If you have a Gat gun which has lost the pellet prodder, please PM me and I'll get one off to you. £7.50 1st class post to UK mainland included. H 😁
  12. Here's the picture of the full package, I vaguely remember it being sold in a local bicycle repair shop and being completely out of my price range.
  13. Thank you, I had looked at that Wraivi and if nothing is forthcoming I might have to consider this option. If nothing else, I'm pleased at the interest and the desire to own the fly swat this thread has created, 😄😄😄
  14. Your replies have made me smile. I bet there's someone on here who has one 😉. I'm going to wait 😄😄😄
  15. I think I have some decoys in my garage loft. I've just replied to a member who was looking for a camo net, if they don't get back to me you can have that too
