  1. this could be a bottom less pit...............pay for him to join a stargazing club and take it from there.......otherwise some expensive bits of kit will be going into tyhe car boot sale for pennies....before he gets the right one
  2. if you expect people to start answering questions like that ........this thread will go stupid............there have been bibles written on air rifles......it will become as complicated as you want it... less is more
  3. they are like a shed............you always wish you had a bigger one
  4. if someone chopped my cherry tree down i would not expect them to lie🍒 $
  5. never knew that........every day is a school day
  6. i think you have some sheep DNA in your blood..............sheep are generally described as the only one of gods animals that activly try and find different ways of killing themselves
  7. having a look at the latest pics i can just see the word sleeved...........i cannot for the life of me see the join....think it has been done very well.............. i think when a gun is sleeved...the makers name and info has to be removed .....unless it has been done buy the original maker....so this would account for the difficulty of identification
  8. does it have english proof marks ?............if it dosnt it may be booty from the 2nd world war brought home as a trophy,,,,,,,,,,i think all herman goerings shotguns and rifles were "liberated" and found themselves a new home in the west EDIT..........i can see BNP stamped on it......if you take it apart you may find someone (the maker) has scratched his initials inside....sometimes not always
  9. looks german or European to me............
  10. ask whitebridges............mine is all wrapped up and disassembled.......when i move i will start work on a new design of piston and a seal made of a material no-one has ever used,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, they are very easy to put well over the limit with the wrong spring....but will easily shake to bits as a result.....what im looking for is the weakest spring possible to achieve the 12ft/lbs........ watch this space
  11. i agree............i believe the HW range was built to run more than 12ft/lbs
  12. quite right....immense ammount of damage can be done if the gun is not designed for it..........i believe target air rifles run at about 7ft/lbs !!
  13. you are parcially right..............i have retro fitted many air rifles and taken thousands of readings.......the volumn of the air is the limiting factor.....but putting a stronger spring in will increase the compression temp' thus the expansion....but you will get to a point where it starts to get less.....strength of the spring is a result of the thickness of the coil steel.....the thicker the coil steel the more volumn it needs to store that energy............this is what is called "coil bound"...the rifle will not cock....so you see what starts to happen tuned air rifles concentrate on reducing the drag (wasted energy)...by modifying the piston...polishing the chamber...changing the seal..adjusting the trigger...and choosing a spring and lubricant that will work in harmony with all this..........
  14. the HW 97 factory spec is sold as sub 12ft/lbs...........so i suggest the one you are interested in has been tampered with...different spring and guts.........the HW range are very easy to retro fit and put over the 12ft/lbs limit...........being a very heavy air rifle the accuaracy should still be good if over 12ft/lbs
  15. and frank sinatra will be singing ......"i did it sideways"🎶
  16. you've got the shakes..........you wernt comfortable......... well done
  17. The Froggies have thrown their teddy outa the pram now......................in protest of losing the 3 steam engined sub contracts they have withdrawn their ambassador's from USA and Australia..............no word yet of the garlic munchers withdrawing their ambassador from the UK this is really quite funny..............im sure the EU will try to get involved as well..im sure Usula fond o lyin....ears will be burning "the games afoot"
  18. been there seen done ...i had one of the first "mobiles " in norfolk........about the size and weight of a breeze block.....Cell-net..........use it for 20 mins and the battery would be flat..............then the motorola....liked them..............then it started to get complicated
  19. like the sound of this.................. all i want it for is to call the AA......or the ambulance
  20. i feel your pain.........shortly i will be buying a mobile phone first one in 16 years.......im dreading the learning curve
  21. looks as if the groove needs scaping out for a start.....then use as you say a bigger circlip
  22. well as long as it is not a "Norfolk Trouser moth"...then im safe
  23. i think i must be a bit strange
  24. found this pretty moth on my door this morning.dont know what make it is ........
  25. i generally work on .............."if i cant spell it i wont eat it"
