  1. One good thing about sunday markets you don't have to pay to get in, been going to the midland game fair for 30 years ,packed up last year wont be going again. p/u.
  2. thanks for the replies p/u
  3. Anybody know of a game dealer who will pick up frozen pigeons in the midlands area, and how much they are paying for them. thanks p/u.
  4. bsa super ten .22 mk 3 sub 12, how heavy, and do they convert into a good fac. thanks p/u
  5. You could try carl at airtech on 0777 829 5542 but donnington near telfords along way from you.
  6. thanks for that piece of info have bought a tin of jsb exacts p/u
  7. took the wildcat over to carl at airtech yesterday it took him about 10 mins to remove 3 pellets stuck in the barrel using a parker hale cleaning rod. job done. spent a couple of hours with him he repairs and makes parts for all sorts of rifles silencers, shrouds, regulators, and all the internal bits and pieces. he reset the ftlb and checked the gun over for me. carl gabbett airtech donnington near telford. atb john p/u.
  8. as far as I know john bowkett will only work on bsa rifles. maybe wrong but im sure that's what he told me when he blue printed my r10 might be worth asking him. atb p/u.
  9. Just bought a new 500 tin of jsb exacts jumbo diabolo 15.89 grains they worked ok so will stick to those from now on. will get the o rings checked when i go to airtech. atb john p/u. air arms diabolo 16 grains were very good.
  10. It worked with another gun I had, but it wont work with this one , the air blows back out of the breach. If I heat the barrel I might ruin the blueing so it will be safer to let the man who makes and repairs guns (carl at airtech) do the job.
  11. I think It must be already shooting round corners by the amount I miss, maybe it will put that right. atb john.
  12. More or less what dekers said Carl heats the barrel in his vat he uses to blue the barrels with, this melts the lead and also re blues the barrel weather it needs it or not. planning to go on Monday. will report back when I get the job done. atb john p/u.
  13. Taking the barrel to carl at airtech tomorrow he says he can clear it while I wait, sounds like the easy way to solve the problem thanks for your help. atb john
  14. Tried firing it, the air came out of the breech no joy, removed barrel (dead easy) inserted a piece of green cane one of those they use to hold the plants up a good fit hammered it in still no movement sprayed gun oil down the barrel I will leave it over night to work its way down and try again in the morning. thank you all for help. atb regards john p/u p/s one thing about pigeon watch, members will always try and help one another with there problems. once again thank you.
