German AirGun Gate / I jumped on the HW50 bandwagon
« Last post by teleamp on Today at 04:37:37 AM »
Mine will be here Saturday, I'm setting in my driveway waiting on the brown truck, got the ice chest by my side... Kinda like the first inline at a black Friday sale. I went with .177. HW50 because of the weight and cocking effort. I shot a TX200 for years, but due to health it got to where I couldn't deal with the weight (I don't shoot from a bench). Hopefully my eyes are still good enough that I can use the open sights.

The plan is to shoot up all of the .177's I have then lube tune it.

We have just had dinner. We had Alison Holsts' lazy lasagne. Alison is a well known NZ cook who writes family cook books. Our lasagne was made with minced lamb, garlic and cherry tomatoes. The sauce part was grated cheddar cheese an egg and cream. Delishimo!

Minced lamb is a bit finer texture than minced beef.

Vintage Air Gun Gate / Re: What classic did you shoot today
« Last post by 45flint on Today at 03:49:46 AM »
Well I shot two FWB 300s, a FWB 124 and my newly acquired Diana model 60 Tyro that I just recently resealed and resprung due to the forward piston seal being crumbled and disintegrated into oblivion. They all shoot very nice and accurate but the 60 is just utterly amazing in smoothness and absolutely no recoil whatsoever.

I luck out and traded a 22 cal HW97 blue laminate for the 60 tyro because it needed a rebuild and the owner did not have the knowledge to do it himself or the funds to pay for it to be rebuilt. Actually they are quite a simple gun to service with a couple simple modification to a bar clamp and a 1/8" welding rod.

The 300s shoot 8.44s at 650 fps, the 124 shoot 8.44s at 825 fps and the 60 shoots 7.87s at 570 fps. All tuned by me.

Like to see some pics of the tyro?

Hunting Gate / Re: Ground Squirrels at a permission
« Last post by Tater on Today at 03:47:46 AM »
Randall, I just converted my impact to .30 cal and used JSB 18 grain which is probably overkill for ground squirrels. You definitely know when you hit one from the loud "thud" sound. Shooting was often interrupted by hawks coming in for a free lunch sometimes as close as 20 yards.
Typo on the 18 grain?  ;)

I called umarex yesterday and asked about the tank block.  I was told they haven't had any in stock since last year and they have no eta on when/if they will have anymore in, just thought I would let everyone know in case anyone else is looking for one.

So after some thought, the gun came apart again and I popped a Huma regulator in the tube, so it is now a “double regulated” gun.  I have the Huma set at 2200 psi, and the JSAR adjustable reg set at about 2400 psi (I’ll still play with that some as time goes on as it is so easy to do).

I'm curious about your decision to put the HUMA in.  I get the concept of two regs,  to take the strain off, and possibly also to minimize creep.  Good stuff.   -  But here are negatives.  First, obviously, you no longer have an external adjust for the final pressure.  Second, you've made the plenum much smaller. 

The first issue isn't huge, if it's a 1-purpose gun,  but (assuming you previously had the JSAR set to 2200)  did you notice any performance decrease after the HUMA install?

Some of you all sound pretty paranoid.   We are just ordinary people and parents trying to raise our own families and share the things that we love most about learning.
