    Goodluck on that.

    Getting a .177 to have similar ballistics as a 22-250 will be very unlikely.

    Hell getting a 177 to have similar ballistics as a .17 HMR is goin to be very difficult. 

    Search on YouTube there is a guy who made .177 slugs gun. It's pretty sweet. Tofazforu might be his name

    Hate to hear that happen! 

    I had the same thing happen to me.

    If your driving that car around I assume you have insurance.  If so your all good they will pay for your stuff.

    When it happened to me the insurance company ( state farm) told the have a max of 2000$ they will pay for a gun of any kind.

    Also all the other stuff youblostvthey will also cover and probably end up with newer model on those items. 

    Okay so I had an R3M stolen out of my car. Payed 1300 insurance payed for the newest model the R5M. They paid 1900 for a 1300$ gun. On top of that they gave all they money for scope and bipod.

    You will need a police report and something that shows you bought said items

    NO I dont like to locktite this screw , it is too soft , I always do 1 of  2 things

    1, buy a spare and double nut it

    2.wrap with teflon tape

    it seems like the thread locker is too difficult to break free causing screw causing  to strip out , unless it is heated to tune to break locktite free ,I had a few strip on me from locktite

    That's why they make vibratite. 

    It not like loctite, it's more of a gel that does NOT harden. Keeps things snug and can still adjust whatever your appling it to.

    Yes but it doesnt explain why it needs 2 velocities 

    265-270ms at 50 meters 15-18mm group and like a shotgun 100 meters and

    285-290 at 100 meters 2.5mm groups and like a shotgun on 50 meters…shoots 1 hole at 30-40 meters 

    Think ill change the barrel to fx st x :)) and for extra stability ill go for huma regulator hope that will solve the problem 

    Thats because your pellets probably aren't flying true.

    You could have one hole groups at 50m then move it to 55m and the group will open up on you.

    You have what I call consistent inaccuracy. 

    I've seen it a few times with my guns. 50 yards prints awesome groups move it 75 or 100 and like you day it's a shotgun pattern. 

    Just mess with different velocity reg pressure all that good stuff until the wobble in the pellet is gone.

    And may even try different pellets

    From Edgunwest they still have the 30s in stock they are made by jsb from what I’ve been told.

    You better call and ask because apparently his website is not up to date.

    just an example of how much better machining looks vs the same 3d print

    As someone who also likes to do these types of things I think you did pretty damn good! Looks awesome! 

    Being made from aluminum the tooling paths looks really good and gives it a eye appealing appearance. 

    Now if you slot it its gonna look ever better!

    I'm glad you made it know the delrin is not lightweight. Aluminum is probably better. I think that black delrin has more weight to it than aluminum. 100% on that

     

    Now if you made from a 3d printer it would only look about 1/4 as good. I've never seen a 3d print that beats the looks of a quality peice of machines material .

    Plus I know I would be much more satisfied making something with my hands then doing a bunch of math on a computer and just wait for said product to be done.

    Like I say good job!

    I'm pretty sure they are aluminum

    If that's the muzzle end its horrible!  Even for a hand crowning. 

    To me it looks like the breach end seeing the rifle has been relieved. 

    I'm just curious what gun? And was it new?

    Not very much chatter here on the Umarex  .50 hammer. Is it dead in the water  or still on it's way? Seems like a pretty simple platform but 2 or 3 shots per fill would take some joy out of it. It sure would be fun to slam some steel,play with different slugs and eliminate garden pests………../

    .50 for garden pests!  Ahh that would be a sight to see.

    I dont think the hammer is dead in the water by any means. They for sure messed up by showing so early but hey it is what it is.

    I'm most likely gonna buy one play with. Be fun to knock some deer with it

    Nobody has mentioned that a scuba tank might not be your best option. Most aluminum tanks(most common) are only 3000psi which severely limits the amount of fills you’ll get out of it.  Most guns workingnpressure are at or above 3000psi pressure, so after one fill, every subsequent fill is less than 3000psi. And, you won’t get many fills. There are 4500psi carbon SCBA tanks all over E-Bay that are inexpensive and will serve you well. There are good options for filling hardware on EBay and elsewhere too. No, you don’t need a regulator and you don’t need dual gauges either. They can be nice but they just jack up the price which hurts when you’re getting started. There are lots of good options out there you just have to look. A 45min SCBA tank is a good place to start and those tanks are all over EBay. Pyramyd sells Recertified carbon tanks for a fair price. Maybe Centercut will weigh in, I think he bought one of his tanks and hardware on E-Bay and is pleased with it. Hope this helped at least a little.

    Well that's because he asked about the fill set up on others  folks SCBA tanks.

    I keep it simple with a whip coming straight from the valve. No regulator or anything

    I had a scary thing happen once.

    I was shooting my impact on my bench with my 74cf tank and I stopped to stand up something and ended up knocking over the impact and it was loaded.

    Well somehow while it was falling on its side on the bench something I had on bench made it's way into the trigger guard and fired of the pellet I had loaded.

    Well that pellet hit my tank which at that point was a few inches from the muzzle ( gun fell over and sideways) and it was a very solid hit from a 34 grain pellet with just about 60 foot pounds! 

    Needless to say that tank is no longer in use and they now sit on the ground next me.

    It was damn scary though… my heart was beating so fast I had to stop shooting for the day

    Plus the people you deal with buying edguns are awesome. It's a win win

    If you watch Ed's videos he says hes not the best shot.

    I have no experience with the Lelya but I do with the matador.

    The accuracy for me was great.

    1 inch groups at 100 was easy. Loved the edgun until it was stolen then the replacement stolen also and have bought another one since and have zero complaints. 

    If your lookin to buy it, go for it!  If you end not liking someone would buy it real quick

    Is an LDC legal for us? I think not.

    Is a air stripper considered an LDC? I think not

    An air stripper will make the shroud functional to reduce sound levels.   Maybe that makes it an LDC? 

    You are probably right. 

    I was just thinking of an air stripper by itself being considered and LDC.

    Well I'll say I've owned both. ( both .25 though)

    I sold the impact to buy an matador and NEVER looked back.

    If your doin mostly hunting then the edgun is for sure the right move. But if you like bench shooting the impact is a little better I think.

    Think about what happens when something goes wrong. 

    The impact is alot more complicated and takes time to solve issues. 

    The edgun you can replace the 7 or so o rings and go on about your day.

     

    Also think about who you will have to call if something goes wrong.

    I've never spoke with anyone from fx and have mixed reviews of there service. 

    Now for edgunwest. Well you cant buy from a better guy.
