Re: BKL mount size?

Hi Richard. Unless you need to get clearance for something like a magazine or after-market loader, the BKL 'low' mount should be fine for a 50mm scope on an S400. The 30mm BKL 'low' mounts are 2mm higher than the 30mm Sportsmatch 'medium', so you might be able to find a Sportsmatch to check. Alan

MPR FT stock fitting

Does anyone know if the MPR FT action will fit in a standard S400/500 series stock? I have an itch to try the MPR, but after a very short try out of a hugely over-priced one in a shop, I don't think I'm going to get on with the stock, so the option of dropping the action into my favourite CS 800 sto...

Have you checked that the transfer port is 3.5mm through all 3 sections?
Good point. That would do it, and it's one of the few things I can think of that haven't been checked.

Have you tried speaking to Robert Lane himself? He is very approachable - just don't phone him when you're in a hurry :D

Re: S510 carbine with Lane reg adjustment

Assuming nothing is leaking, sticking or broken you should be getting a much higher MV than that. With the recommended spring pressures and the venturi right out I would expect 790+ fps with your pellets. It doesn’t sound like the breech seal or transfer port seal are blown (always my first suspects...

Re: Air Arms barrel band.

Ive never had a problem with the barrel band, I just loosen the grub screws and let the barrel sort itself, if it's a problem, you can fit a rowanengineering one, and you can see a gap all around the barrel, just tighten when it's not touching, fitted one on my S400, kind of floating without the wo...

Re: Floating or clamped, pro's and con's

I agree with Tonyc about the protection, so I use the barrel band, but I use an oversize one from Rowan so the barrel floats, but can only move a fraction if it does get a knock - not enough to take a bend (hopefully :? ).

Re: EV2

I don't think I've ever used a gun, PCP or springer, that was spot-on first shot after being left for a day or so. Just pop off a few shots, or even dry fires and all should be well.
