My first .177 pellet gun

Unread postAuthor: farcticox1 » Sun Aug 19, 2018 4:51 pm

.177 smooth bore (.183" ID seam less tubing). Barrel is 750mm long and uses a 24vdc solenoid valve, chamber is 1" x 12" sch40 stainless steel charged to 150psi from my compressor. Single shot bolt action. BB's not so accurate but the dome head lead pellets are pretty good :D

150PSI is safe to use push to connect fittings and hoses, you could have routed a larger chamber inside the handguard and have multi shot capability

When I had nothing, I did a lot. Now that I have everything, I do not do anything. Damned karma

No it's mostly aluminium & stainless chamber and barrel. It's pretty simple really.

Peep sight fitted, works nicely, had some adjustable stock parts from another build I didn't use so fitted that and made adjustable cheek rest as well.
