    Saw the new UTG  TBNR bipod at shot show, well built, made in USA, on amozon for $147. +/-, felt tight, well built, well finished. I would consider this product for my next bipod, as I have Atlas clones, an a Atlas, and Harris units.

    I have had good results from my Zabroia Kozak FC long in .22 with 18 grain JSB's. I have only shot 500 plus pellets through it, but it is as accurate as my Cricket rifle in .22 at my shooting level. db

    You stated that they { factory } did not put lock tight on secound stage piston, what type of lock tight would work? Heat is how you losen up lock tight, so running compressor will diminish lock tight effectivness as it heats up. Normanly torquing a bolt to a recomended inch pound/ foot pound/ neton meter spec would be used. I will be rebuilding my Yong Heng in the future, and forsee trying to prevent most of the problems if possible.Thank you, db

    I bought a Zboria Kozak FC long in Sept. from Joe Brancato in .22 cal. Shot very well out of the box. Triger is very nice, accuracy out to 50 yards with JSB 18.13 gr. good. I have about 500+ rds through it. I would buy another!

    I have used sections of bicycle inner tube to hold on covers that came with Discovery scopes. Cut them different lengths to make custom rubber bands, fiddle with them to get them on with little slop. Have used this method under and over scope covers to help retain the covers. db

    I have several scba tanks given to me by a volunteer fire dept. I inspected the outside and used a Harbor Freight fiber optic scope to inspect the inside. Everything looked good, so I filled them with my compressor to 4500 psi. I have been using them for several years. I also have 3 Joe Brancato tanks, which I also use, and prefer the Airtanksforsale,com valves. I mentioned this as I'm a scuba diver and have had to maintain dive tanks in remote areas in years past. These carbon fiber tanks are better units , they are lighter and show their weaknesses before they fail. At this point in time I'm watching the fourums for more info on this subject, as I'm not an expert. I do know that Europe has been using the same tanks for longer than 15 years with out problems. Comments? db

    Do not use comination locks, and if possible use locks that must have key inserted to relock. I have had combinations change in transit, and a key that must remain in lock when unlocked allows owner to observe the closing of gun case, as they should return key to gun owner. Use at least two locks if possible, and not TSA locks, or at least only one TSA with real locks to comfirm security.

    If you travel on airplanes, scope up will survive handlers better regardless of length of trip. Having watched several different handlers move hard rifle cases I''ve noticed that they grab case by handles then place case wherever it fits on cart/trailer, flat or handles up. Handles up would put scope up, flat side down may make no difference, many times with other baggage on top. I use larger than necessary hard cases to provide extra padding.
