  1. Dam! there nice, I do play with a gamo compact with a very sorted trigger there not bad once this is done and an old Walther LP mod3 I use cheap pellets myself not for cost more for lack of skill! and for me its good training as I'm left handed and the pistols are not.
  2. Hatsan striker 1000x wood .25 + BSA genesys 1-4x24
  3. Well I gave them a go there a bit on the under size about 6.30 mm where as the grizzly's are about 6.33mm so run fine in the supersport carbine and well enough in the stealth at about 450fps and group around half inch at 10m for both excluding flyers.
  4. I started out with air guns but was shooting at a club with 22lr by about 11 i would go with the 22lr if ammo is cheap you way.

    A few season's hunting and some winter plinking you have there, have to ask how big is your airgun to need 8 tons 4 bore? 2 bore maybe? 😁

    Lead ban

    Think Canada use steel shot for game so shotguns are in a way ok because there catered for, jacket rounds will have to conform to so thats all firearms my personal take is we maybe priced out of use, funny only time a minority group dont have a bunch of goons shouting down other people for us or investing in "awareness drives" must be because its guns right! However the solution needs a low price point maybe like using not full amalgamated cast iron in a plastic, hemp or coconut fiber/resin cup so it has weight and will deform and ride the bore without damage plus even in sub 12 there could be a rise in calibre to counter lack of weight but CSA will cause more drag and drop effective range etc, but yeah! hard to say think I'll go ask Elvis! y'know he liked guns too...

    Lead ban

    Think a bit of rule seperation is needed, shotguns using steel ok sure more likely for the game to be sold and if so a lack of lead has been asked for but for your own pot no and as for us pop gun lovers we are so much a low key user it would be nice to have that taken account of and that the pellet/slug has to ride the bore meaning a change is not so easy same for 22lr. Copper jacket rounds without lead core ok but using steel well that becomes close to amour piercing so all copper well it would I think lack the stabillity same with alloy core you have to find something that replicates lead, go too hard its becoming an AP round go too light more unstable flight, maybe steel powder or grains? brass? basically heavy and soft?
  8. Looks alright! but I like older guns like my Diana mod 1 and Milbro bobcat there good enough junior garden plinkers and my Gamo paratrooper is even better also they have a historical value which should grow, anyhow.. my only Umarex is the Colt M4 and thou a good reproduction I dont rate them high for build quality which is a shame as they make good looking guns!

    Lead ban

    think you would have a higher velocity anyhow which could make its own problems as for the nature of the ban it looks to be about use so if you shoot on land or at a club there will come issues, clubs less so due to being able to recover the lead, as a side note me and my brother used to chop up nails and cotton wrap them up to size quite effective!
  10. There well presented, boxed and set in trays and look well formed so I will be buying them again if the performance is there.
  11. 870x870x21gr divide by 450240 = about 35lbs right? 😁 nice! By the same calculations I can drive the 26.5 grn slugs around 445fps for 11.6 lbs of energy thats a good sum when you note the stealth FAC model has about 35fbs max energy driving the same weight slug upto around 770fps so by calculations a lions share of the velocity can be had with non FAC energy but reality is rarely so neat!
  12. I have been feeding the stealth with grizzly's and ranging shots 15-20 yards no problem so these with less weight will be even better, I shoot in very closed in woodland so shots beyond 25 are rare and I take that as near the outer limits for the 25's anyhow, thing is the stealth runs a very direct air path and you also imprint the rifling during loading these things I think keep the last few lbs of energy in the pellet, when I send some through the meter I could put up the velocitys if your interested?
  13. I've ordered some for the .25's around the 26grn's mark prob's better in the pcp than the springers.

    Lead ban

    If it stays on track with the proposals then sure thats a doable time frame well for me anyhow I'm just not overly trusting of the powers that be, and I dont think we as a group command any political power, Im wondering in balance could sub 12 guns toy with larger calibres to trade off against lighter faster projectiles? if so I'll take that!

    Lead ban

    Thats how it reads to me and I hunt on someone else's land so the problem grows from there also, and I think it is to be covered by the HSE its going to get murky

    Lead ban

    Quite so! thing is this has come and gone as a topic for what maybe 15 years thing is in that time a good alternative has not come forward if that was due to price that should adjust in time if its characteristics that seems less easy to resolve

    Lead ban

    Aye I'm with you on that Stu, and Opp good point also plenty in the land after all where do you find it in the first place😁, and what about all those grand old buildings with lead flashing and guttering is the likes of the church and private owners due to be forced to renovate before time?

    Lead ban

    I have a good stock..feels less about the nature of the substance and more as an attack on shooting, if you can't ban the gun go after the ammo...Kind of ****** about it in a way, been doing this for 40 years we have know about lead for a long time but now its a problem...

    Lead ban

    Agree shotguns will operate mostly just fine, but airguns maybe not so good most barrels are hammer forged which will have some works hardening so alloys should not wear the bore to much I'm thinking, but flight stability and hardness may have a lack of accuracy and as scarecrow put it pinging about and what of 22lr and jacketed rifle rounds? Agreeded! Ultrastru only tryed a sabo round years ago with a copper coated lead core good effect but did not dump its energy like a pure soft lead slug or pellet.

    Lead ban

    I guess there is little we can do? so whats the plan? not tryed any of the lead free stuff I guess they lack the weight would that mean in time longer pellets or will we see larger calibre's come in to sub 12 guns? I feel I have more to ask than offer answers so what are your thoughts gents?

    Finally

    Theoben carbine that sounds very nice! well thats a good exchange, never tryed a .20 and as we both have discussed the early BSA's do have that less than productive tighter bore might consider a sizing die as my make do chop stick loader is ok but not really dealing with the problem!
  22. Chaz25

    Finally

    .25 the musket of air rifles! well in sub 12 anyhow, love that sound its like an artillery round! I dont want to make you feel bad but I have an SS carbine from the 90's she's near mint so only be taking her hunting on good days the SE is in fair order but more every day, Lol white Rhino's! opening those its like and old tin of biscuits, how many are broken! I have two tins and a fair few.. well I dont know what they are just know its a bit of lead, but the good ones fit the old SS ok and are still cheap, how's the striker? whats you best pellet out of that lot? kind of like the Pylarm's for something light every thing else I spin down range is mostly 30grn+

    Finally

    First successful day on tuesday, only been able to be on site a few times last month, so those times just getting some range practice in again and stalking plus getting a really good gauge of the grounds now, so I'm along a low ridge line path staying high so I can shoot down into the wood but not silhouetting myself, had seen a grey earlier but as the shot was presenting itself the squirrel moved off, this time it played out differently it was low and only about 20 yards away and I had the advantage of bracing against a trunk, facing away from me I had a clean shot to the back of the head the springer made its thunking sound a tiny time delay as the .25 bumblebeed its way down range and the sound of impact coming back to me, I could see and hear it was a good hit, the impact had carried it forward and into some scrub and out of view I moved down to it whilst reloading, I found it in the scrub no need for another shot the pellet met its mark, the rest of the hour I had on site the hunting got sparse so I just took in the wild life and set off home, I'll see what next week brings...
  24. I like my gunpower stealth, very adaptive,but you would have to consider something second hand if you have a liking for one, so maybe the Phox would work well for you.
  25. Its a slotted head right? I may have a tool its a ground tip of a file but I would need dimensions to be sure, also it you are going to make your own be sure its hardened steel ie use an old file.
