Flex 308 project in full swing
« on: March 20, 2017, 11:16:40 PM »
All mechanical parts in hand. Set back now is my hydro dipping.

The dipping was perfect but after days of sitting the film went to a terrible state.

All parts have been re prepped and now waiting on replacement film.

By the week end hoping the 308 will sling lead. There will be no gun like this in looks.

The Flex 30 is all back togather and dipped.

That is a sweet looking Flex for sure.
Does the .308 flex shoot as hot as it is going to look?
Did you put one of the Cothran valves in it?
Thx Randy

308 is not finished. Yes that is the valve. I stripped the gun hardware and had a buddy that hydro dips as a small business and we had issues with the film. I can not complete.the 308 because he has the buffer tube and my hammer spring fixture . Lighter hammer spring, different transfer port and the valve change. TJ 24" 1:14 twist slug barrel.Barrel block and barrel.upgrade along with probe upgrade. No reguardless for now.

Hoping that the 308 will out perform the FLEX 30. The Flex 30.is shooting the 50 gr 950 fps accurate. Right at 100 fpe. The Flex is the stock WAR FLEX valve.

The 308 hardware is hydro dipped over ceracoat and ceracoat clear coat.

The flame is a rattle can base coat white  hydo dipped and a polyurethane clear coat.

I am looking forward to hearing your 308 Flex result with the Cothran valve, your .30 cal flex has some great fpe with pellets.
Travis has been on a high efficiency kick lately and not being the old Travis that was hot for power. I haven't seen any really reports of the Cothran valve other than Lloyd big bore testing a while ago.  I'm not busting Travis's balls too much so don't misunderstand me please. He has a lot going on right now, if I can I'll give him a bad time at the pacific airgun show this weekend if he has some free time to BS.

Glad to hear this. I have been following his work. Hoping with this valve the 308 will have some power. Finding different ammo available for the TJ barrels.

I just need some test time to match the lead to the gun.

Whitefang,
Nice LDC, that should keep the 308 pretty toned down.

Well on the ldc I did use Travis new think my jig.  Tested it on the Flex 30. For sure a different sound. It is a slip on that replaces the threaded on one. I did not snug it down on the just air testing. Launched it like a mirtor. Lol

I made it larger and a bit more weight for the barrel pressure.

Look like my new hydro film is hung up somewhere in Memphis! !

But luck came along with the Aeromunition ammo. I am expecting some great testing with Al's ammo. I am now on Al's test team and just one of the many he has all over the USA.

HIS website is under construction at this time but will be up and running hopefully by the week end.
http://aeromagnum.com


I just hope the Flex is up for the ammo weight. Looks like Travis has swayed me to regulating the gun.

Travis has the Flex Cobra coming out.  I got the FLEX 308 ???????. It's name and dress is still under lock and key. Lol

Travis had seen the previous film but due to the downfall  results the film pattern has changed and may be more fitting🙈🙉🙊for the FANG.

Many thanks.

Just wait as I am on the 308 dip and it's logo. I am in the process of either making a tank or buying one to start my on hydro dipping business.

I already have in the works a company that is willing to help me out on good products and the overall training and knowledge of the trade.

Much more will soon be offered to the public in work conducted for this hobby.

Thank very much.

Here is a close up after a scope change. The Leatherwood failed and was removed for warranty and this is the newest HAWKE AIRMAX. This a quick patch 3m 1080 vinyl wrap that I dipped. Notice the new Weaver Tactical 6 hole rings. These are great on the Flex Ghost 30 cal.

Flex 308 GHOST WOLF
Got the gun togather but still need the regulator and the correct hammer and spring. Mine being the gen 1 has not got all the upgrades as the gen 2.

Even with the gun set up with you much hammer weight and and spring the gun is producing big power. More to come.

IM BACK BOYS and were off the efficiency kick and back to making big power again. My 308 is doing well and making over 200fpe. I should have the ammo sorted out so no guess work. Lots to do but im on it!!!!
