  8. Picking up a 22 Hatsan 900 X next week, Looking to fit a tune kit ? et

    hello, just an update, this morning i manadged to get the plastic forend off, took a couple of hours carefully cutting down from the front but not touch the inner barrel, i measured from inside, then i sliced off in bits which opened up to reveal the thread and a round nut, ( not as suggested 17mm nut) that came off ok using mole grips, the washer slid off to, what was left i spliced cut across as it sat on a splined area, once loose it was a matter of a mole grip turning round until loose enough to take off by hand, ok you are left with a 55mm by 12mm barrel end the threaded and splined but the crown is undamadged and i did not need to cut off barrel, so to the fitted silencer i have found a good deal for a HW copy 180mm X 32mm made in UK and this will be made to slip on the 16mm barrel and 2 grub screws to hold, PRICE FOR MOD £25 posted, 1/2 inch UNF also made, will see how the 900 goes with new mod and think to do the internal tune kit.
