    Wrong !

    Brexit is your friend.... incidentally, I have a lovely deactivated 1917 PO8  in my collection.

    Can you back this up with evidence? Don’t want anyone getting into hot water, as far as I know it is still illegal to sell or pass on anything other than a current eu deact.

    What would you use if you didn't have or run out of the 5.6mm. If you don't mind my asking.


    Most people seem to have success with rws superdomes in the older larger bore guns.

  4. Definitely buy one of the ones recommended above, 80 psi will overheat and kill any of the cheap ones, I got a all metal one for under £30 when maplin closed down and it will just about do a 15” 4x4 tyre without getting too hot so anything more and spending the extra will ensure you don’t buy twice. 

    oh and cigar lighter ones will probably blow the fuse so go straight for one that clips onto the battery.

  5. Hi I now have a old antique single barrel percussion gun that I will be mounting on the wall, it’s well pitted and has some rust and I need to stop the rust and give it a long lasting protective finish. What would be best on the metal work, give it a wire wool rub and normal gun oil or is there a better way to protect it. 

  6. One of the other half’s friends is a gp and she was bragging about all the lgbt courses and awareness courses she had been on, sounded like she had not seen any patients for months! 
    im actually scared of getting ill enough to need to see someone.

  7. Sorry valves seem hard to find these days, looking at the bottle valve if you have not had it apart then it looks like it could have been apart before or an attempt has been made to get it apart so best bet might be if you can get the valve out before buying a new valve and then finding it’s stuck! If it won’t come apart it might be easier to get a new bottle and valve given if it’s a early model the bottle will be quite old anyway. 

  8. There is not much to them, if the seals are good on the gun then the bottle valve might be causing it to go funny but I would just expect it to leak. They come apart easy and I think there is only a couple of seals on the gun itself. 

    if you don’t get anywhere with it I think I still have a .22 barrel here if you wanted to try it with that and see if it flattens out the power. 

  9. I do however own a snow foam attachment, it came from pro Kleen and it’s pretty good even on my little karcher 

    I got it for the other half’s car to make cleaning a bit more fun, it’s no easier than normal washing but it does get a good amount of detergent all over the body then rub down and rinse.
