88inch

Co2 or not

Recommended Posts

For a gun not used often I'd go spring and probably an hw99s. Its not very loud and with a silencer its a bit quieter. Totally reliable and very accurate a gun I wish I hadn't sold.

TBH - putting a Mod on an old Springer is akin to buying a bike for a Goldfish.

🤣🤣🤣

took the old Diana .22 down the woods this morning to zero the scope. took some time to settle down as it has not been fired for years.

I have ordered the silencer so will re zero when I get it plus I used Milbro caledonian pellets that I found in the garage. Quite some variation i skirt size.

have ordered some pellets from 'wolf man' that have been recommended for older guns. Thanks for your help. Some good info on this site.

Hello, I always lube my air rifle pellets with LT 1, I am sure you will find a difference on the silencer, cheers

What pellets did he recommend? Mine loves AA field and JSB Exacts - quite tight fit but superb accuracy. BTW - before you go terrorising the bunnies, have you chronographed  the gun to make sure she is on par - they only put out around 10.5 ft/lb when new - that's around 540 fps with a 16 gr pellet.

Exacts it is. No chrono though. It will be squirrels at 25yards. The gun had a new spring and washers just before it was stored.  Not a power house but

it should do the job.

I love mine 88inch - wanted one for over 30 years before finally buying one - not regretted it for a moment.
