Compact .177

Unread postAuthor: farcticox1 » Sat Oct 06, 2018 5:36 pm

Finished the compact .177, barrel is 12" long. 11" if you allow for the dead space, valve is 1/4" pilot operated, accuracy as expected, about 1 1/2" group at 9m. Running straight off compressed air as usual at about 150psi. One of my favoritist guns to shoot so far :D

Interesting, noticed that the pellets were a tighter fit in this barrel than the last one, so tight that I had to seat them down the barrel otherwise 150psi was not enough to get it moving. This tube measures 4.60mm ID, the last one I built with a different piece of tube is 4.70mm ID. Just the luck of the draw with tolerences :shock: Going to polish out a small section at the breech end and see if it still works at 150psi.
