  1. Some things to think on when we look at the 12 pound rule, its a target and small game/pest control rifle that in law can be used in the bounds of your own land that dose mean with good considerations your own back garden, how much energy would it carry if a target is missed and how much would be carried through small game? you need to think of it as a way to allow it to being open to more use than less as its there to cover a large spectrum of use in a land not of vast open area's, shooting at game both elevated and at ground with fairly good effective reach in mind, also for a long time many gun on the market have been spring guns there was a balance to be made between weight, power, accuracy and easy of use. so the trade off has been ease of ownership more use in more area's of land with a much lower level of law in place than may at first be considered.
  2. Don't know much about them, only handled one years ago I would say have a look, take many photo's and send them to some one willing and in the know to verify what it is, being rare has the problem of not having many out there to compare it to. sorry I could be no more helpful.
  3. Steel plate guns are ace little garden guns, I like to plink with my bobcat using 177 lead ball

    HW 97 advice

    Just throwing out interesting things about how they work....thing is I am fascinated how a simple system is complicated.....also must be why I like women! But ok lets keep it simple, pull the trigger an twang, crack and if aimed right splat! maybe thud!.. 😁

    HW 97 advice

    I kind of took it that a stronger spring just lets peak pressure transfer more/better due to less bounce back from the high pressure cushion at the cylinder wall?

    HW 97 advice

    16 I would say is not too much for a springer it will of course have a harsher recoil impulse and load the parts more but if built for it, it should cope well enough and the German kit is heavy built, accuracy should still be good but hold sensitivity would I think be more so and stock creep more of a problem so you may have to fettle more, really be nice to try it first accuracy should be fine but you may loath the recoil.

    Slower burn rate and lower peak pressure I guess for that kind of powder? its on my bucket list to try one prob's something that will never come to pass, maybe you could grace us with a picture of it one day?

    I was thinking of the old solid slug 4 bores both smooth and rifled a "stopping rifle" as they say, what's it like to shoot they look to have one hell of a kick

    Or its a sense of humour.. the net is for me not a place to be overly emotionally taken by, no offence was meant to any here. Or a 4 bore...I recall seeing one in a gun shop it was bloody massive.

  14. Agreed you have to like what it is, your right about the base of the gun being good, I have been researching, looks to have a Diana TO5 trigger system and the rest looks to be Diana 34-36 maybe 350 mag? or parts akin to those models the weight mainly come from the thick barrel and breach block love to know why yours seems just fine but mine was suffering creep right from the first shot
  15. I avoid the co2 stuff my mate has a load of them really not well put together, Umarex are just not what they should be, but at least this one looks to be based on a Diana spring system so not too bad, as for walt, well I have military in the blood and a fair number of connections over the years I'm sure one drastic plastic rep on the wall is OK 😁
