Re: TDR leak ??

Well picked w bag of balloons up this morning and grabbed the Tdr to find the leak . I left it last night with 180 bar and bugger me it’s still got 180 bar in it, looks like it’s fixed itself. Out tonight on the bunnies and it’s shooting perfect. Still think it’s time for a service though.

Re: FAC air whats the benefit ?

Sorry about the delay in getting back to the post, been hunting bunnys. regarding power then i can see how the .22 would be superior. However The velocity limit for a diabolo pellet is around 920-950fps. Beyond this the pellet loses stability and accuracy. This puts the practical power limit at arou...

FAC air whats the benefit ?

Just what extra do you get from an FAC air rifle? So we have the oppotunity of getting an FAC air rifle, but where do we start i like my TDR in .177 and with the flat trajectory i can take (not bragging) bunnys out to 50+ yards easily (in the perfect weather conditions) , and if i was to up it to FA...

Re: pancreatic cancer

We lost our lasses sister a couple of years ago to this, horrible thing to go through for all concerned.
Hew first symptom was jaundis as the tuma was blocking her duct, but by then it was too late.

Yes Brian i would second that, i have the TDR in 177 pre AT and love it , ok the s510 has the side leaver and the new silencer, but and i think this is a minus point it also has a hard case . To me one of the points in having the TDR is that it can be packed down and carried without drawing attentio...
