  1. The 300 I believe is the operating pressure of 300 bar and the 450 is the test pressure of the cylinder hence the T450 bar
  2. Thanks, it appears to be living up to, if not exceeding expectations
  3. Have you tried the Alpha militaria they give a good review
  4. Having owned an ATA shotgun for while now and being extremely happy with it, I have owned an Air Arms TX200 air rifle I was finding due to a touch of arthritis, it was becoming difficult to load as it was a .177 I sold it and had the princely sum of £400 to spend. So looking about I came across the ATA Airborne a pcp air rifle for £399. Looking at a number of reviews which all were very very positive, a regulated pcp air rifle, walnut stock two 12 shot mags and a potential 300 shots from one fill and all for under £400 the rifle reviewed was available only in .22, .177 will be available later . I decided to take the plunge I tried everywhere, but were sold out all over eventually I found one at On target Range at Northampton, as a side note great set up very good to deal with, anyway , the rifle comes with two mags, moderator and spare seals. The scope rail is of a picatinny type so fitted a scope I already had a Hawke sidewinder I use on my sako quad but don’t use. Well it’s does exactly what it said on the tin after adjusting the trigger to my liking. The side leaver is smooth it has a good weight but balanced I have owned Air Arms 400 and 410 this is as good , set the target at 40 metres target shown was a full mag the flyers were my fault . It’s a well built accurate rifle for under £400 is a steal. ATA do it again The set up
  5. The shoot run by Churchill of Dereham, is at Swanton Morley last Sunday of the month the post code is NR20 4RH you are also near the Mid Norfolk shooting ground, that is just north of Norwich. There is Chalk Farm between Swaffham and Marham on A47 they have practice on a Tuesday afternoon from 2pm also a Sunday they have a website. I hope this is of help to you
  6. Hi there, there is nothing wrong with the magazine a good feed would put right , the label is fine, the outside I would give it a good going over with Fiebing’s Aussie leather conditioner I use this on all the cases I renovate. On evil bay about £16 Thanks
  7. Black powder is more sensitive to friction, static discharge, shear forces and impact forces has to be treated with respect. I load by hand, takes a bit longer but I still got all my fingers touch wood
  8. Yep each to their own, I don’t wildfowl, but enjoy the gun, certainly looks the part
  9. ATA actions are steel but they do some with lightweight alloy action, I have a SP Elegant which is steel
  10. Yep I agree, I have had various bits over the years, good little company, first class service 👍
  11. The estate had some forestry guy in last year to thin out the trees and blimey did they leave a mess, you have to drag over waste timber and they ******** up the tracks so can’t get a vehicle down them, so everything has to be manhandled out, but it keeps you fit
