New member from NZ.

Thu May 24, 2018 3:36 pm

Hi all,

I am a new member to this forum. I'm in New Zealand, and have been shooting airguns for a few years. A few months ago I bought an HFT500 off a friend because it was a good deal. I started to use it and have come to appreciate it. I do pest control for work and have mainly used an FX Cyclone for feral pigeons, but have just got me an S510 carbine fac, as I felt the smooth twist wasn't as accurate in 177 as the LW barrel. Anyway I will put a reg in it soon and leave power around 11 to 12 ft/lb mark once I've got more info on valve and hammer spring tuning to suit the lower reg pressure.

Paul.
