Indeed it can but I can't remember if the cause of that particular failure was due to the projectile or DDT. DDT seems unlikely in such a short and fat chamber also considering the lack of any other DDT reported incidents.

If people weren't already, I would suggest checking your barrel after each shot of your hybrid. I guess the safe thing to do would be to scrap my $20 barrel. :(


Edit: Actually it does appear to be a possible case of DDT, forgot he was running at 18x mixes.

ITWOST: The hybrid cartridge along with a few other older cannons were destroyed in a shed fire. :( Luckily the meter survived so a rebuild wont be as costly.

Came across these vids:

Fairly standard QEV/pop-off setup but reasonably well executed. The guy doesn't seem to be a member of this forum, can anyone place the accent?

There's a reason I haven't done any voice overs for my videos :wink:
Though, I'm sure you're inclined to agree the Kiwi accent is far more socially acceptable than the Aussie one :D


In other news: I'm travelling to the sort-of infamous, but sort of not well known at all, Mangawhai bach tomorrow evening and hopefully I will be accompanied by some malleable galvanised iron contraptions.

Anyone want to take bets on how many days Mjollnir will last without fault?
The options are:
    One shot
    One day
    Two days
    Three days
    Four days

Bets can be placed in my PayPal account :)

Terms of Conditions:
Bet money will not be awarded to the corresponding winners. Instead, all money will be used to prevent future states of sobriety.

I don't think I've ever actually spoken to a Kiwi.

Do I sense a miniboy firing on the horizon? We haven't forgotten you know ;)

Part of the reason we're heading up tomorrow is so the quadbike can get fixed. I would've fired MiniBoy by now if we weren't worrying about recovery, which would make it slightly pointless :wink:

Haven't been to London for awhile I take it?

I second JSR, I haven't forgotten.


We haven't forgotten.

JSR, think like an Australian drawling, but more pleasant, and obviously "fush and chups", not fish and chips.

Not since 2008. Last time I went to the UK I stayed in Cambridge and Bristol, much more British :D

ITWOST: I found my dad's old Crosman 1377 air pistol, unfortunately when you pump it all the air goes out the barrel. Would it be that the valve seal has gone dozy?

Might have a modded valve...try cocking it before you pump it.

If it still leaks...it's the valve stem. Easy fix. :D

You can get parts from Allan @ abairgun ...a great guy to deal with. :)

These things are fun to play around with. :wink:
