Big Bore AirGun Gate / Re: Benjamin Bulldog 357 help
« Last post by redlined_b16a on Today at 07:04:13 PM »
The biggest powermod I done was enlarged the barrel and transfer port plud the valve port.
The gun went from 200 fpe to 250 fpe with the same ammo and hammer spring setting.

However be warned you will loose shot count and efficiency
My gun went from 15 shots from 2000-3000 psi
Down to 8 shots max.

Was it worth it?
Shooting Cast ammo......yes.

For pellets absolutely not.
Look into pitbull airguns.
If you are not comfortable pulling them apart and drilling,grinding and polishing parts....parts that once you damage it you need to replace parts.

As far as suppression.
Remove your current one and fire......you will appreciate how much is works and you do not realize it.

   Just got mine from Pyramid Air, only had time to shoot four pellets.
All shots were five pumps at 10 yards standing In the Biathlete stance. One each on the three metal spinners. You can see the larger pellet splash of the .22 caliber among the other.177 pellet hits. The water bottle was my very first shot, almost a center of mass hit marked with the strip of white paper I checked the bore with before I shot it.

My next kit will be from Denby95 and his newly found career lol.

I don't mind screwing up my own guns but I'm not gonna ruin yours!  :P

Hey Drew, if it works it works. Iíve shrunk down guides and top hats chucked into cordless drills when fitting new springs.you may have just given me a reason to buy a drill press

So the one pictured is a 1950s craftsman drill press that I bought for 50 bucks off craigslist and refurbished. They're built to an amazing standard unavailable in a home gamer situation today. Browse your local craigslist and facebook marketplace. Mine has an extra intermediate pulley but I'm able to go from about 160 rpm at the slowest speed to about 12000 RPM at the highest. Check out garagejournal.com, theres a big forum and thread topic where all we do is discuss fixing up these vintage craftsman drill presses.

<some text deleted>00000
INSTRUCTION MANUAL: 10/10 - It's only in English (refreshing to this American) and is well-written with no Chenglish. Do resist the temptation to skip over some of the scary warnings. On some products, these are all common sense, but for this gun, some of those things would not be known. For example, one such warning says not to turn up the regulator pressure while there's any air in the gun; that could damage the regulator. I'm an experienced airgunner, but this is my first regulated gun, so I didn't know that. (turning it DOWN while there's air in the gun seems to be OK though...)

On the Avenger (bullpup and standard), the gun has to be depressurized before decreasing the regulator's pressure setting.  Tightening the regulator's screw clockwise reduces the regulator's pressure.  SOP is to degas the gun, tighten the regulator screw clockwise all the way down, then turn it CCW a quarter turn.  Then all of the adjustments you make will be to increase the pressure by turning the screw CCW.  It's touchier than you think, and if you pass where you wanted to be, you'll have to degas the gun and start the process all over again.  Loosening the screw increases the regulator pressure, and vice versa.

If that's a set screw on the side of the rear sight, then it's a pre-sight-wedge model.  That's a good thing. 

The rear sight has been moved back to the receiver, too.  It's normally about six inches forward of where that one is.  That's where you normally hold it to pump it up.

If there are tiny numbers on the left side of the receiver below the loading port, they'll tell you the year and month it was made.  They're in reverse order.  Mine is 5691J meaning October of 1965.

Luck,

J~

Just placed the order for another brass trigger for gun #2.
I'm gonna leave the 24" barrel on this gun and it will become Betty Lou's.
I'll put the 18", steel breech and brass trigger on #2 coming in for myself.
