Re: S400

Eric, if any of the above suggestions don't work, the problem is most likely to be the barrel has slipped partly out of the brass breach and moved slightly forward. The breach and the barrel have to be removed, cleaned of the existing glue(?), and refitted. I use blue Loctite sparingly. Be careful a...

Re: Hft500 fps

Oops a typo. Lol. I did intend putting in a point.

Yes just over .3ft/lbs.

Tonyc. Thinking about it I don't think I tried the 2 weights of pellets on a classic so perhaps slightly higher as you say.

Well done to the sharp eyed members who spotted that.

Re: Hft500 fps

I don't have a Hft500 but find with the 400 and 500 series rifles an increase of just over 3ftlbs from JSB 8.44gr to JSB 10.34gr.

I have tried this many times and the results are consistent. I'm sure you will be within the legal limit with the power you have set at this time.

Re: Valve stem

You need to fill from a divers bottle when the gun is empty. Cock the gun and give the gun a quick blast from the bottle. This will close the firing valve down onto it's seating. As long as you don't fire the gun down to empty you will be able to use your pump in the future. If you don't know anyone...

Re: S410 presure gauge

My first thought is your diver bottle has a gauge fault and is putting more pressure into the rifle than you think. If I'm correct you will have come very close to blowing the new cylinder. Dry fire the rifle and see if its gauge starts to drop. If it does, refill the rifle from someone else's diver...

Re: General Licences Consultation

Peter, I would like to answer some of the points you raised in your last post. "Some of my shooting friends kill living creatures for sport (your word), some find it abhorrent." Yes I do consider what I do is a sport. Sport is something a person enjoys doing and in my case has the added satisfaction...

Re: General Licences Consultation

Peter, my link is the same as yours! HaHa I should have tried your link. Here's something I've remembered. The Dark Bellied Brent goose caused a lot of damage to crops and were shot by wildfowlers mainly since shotguns were invented. In the 1950's (I think) their numbers dropped after quite a few po...

Re: General Licences Consultation

That is a good idea Peter. I didn't think of doing that so here it is: - https://consult.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-management/wild-birds-general-licence-survey/ Now its easy to find the survey. You do not have to fill in every section, just the ones where you have knowledge. I didn't fill in anything ab...

Re: General Licences Consultation

Raj,
further to my previous post.

Search General Licences from my link --- 2nd on the list and scroll to where it says summary --- consultation is being held on another site and click it.

You will be taken to where you need to be.
