    I have a bayonet on mine …. found two squirrels last winter and raised my gun to shoot them … they raised their arms … pulled out a white flag …. dropped to their knees and begged me not to shoot … then I marched them back to the house. I know … I know … I'm too tenderhearted 😉

    Yeah, we all hope that when we find a place to build a home that the environment will not change and fortunately I have been able to keep mine just like it was. But about 2 years ago, the guy who owned the empty lot next to me died and when his estate was settled his son came to me and said that he would give me first option at buying the lot or he would put it up for sale or give it to Habitat for Humanity so he wouldn't have to pay taxes on it. We settled on a REALLY nice price and I went ahead and bought it … otherwise I would be facing the same situation you are.

    I'm really sorry for your loss of a good shooting range, that sux and would be enough to get me to looking for another place to hang my hat.

    If you took your tank to a dive shop or a fire department where they would fill your tank to 4500 psi or 310 BAR … then you would MAYBE get 2 complete fills for your Avenger if you are bound and determined to fill the air reservoir on your gun to the maximum … assuming that you can get the dive shop or the FD to fill your tank to 4500 psi … most leave themselves a margin of error and only fill to about 4200 psi.

    I very rarely fill my guns that high because that much pressure wreaks havoc on your o-rings. I have a Cricket that I can fill to 300 BAR but seldom go past 250 BAR and then shoot down to where the gun goes off the regulator before filling again.

    I find that PA is a lot better about it than many of the others. If they are out of stock they will usually say so … especially on the pellets and a lot of times they will put a date on there with an estimate on when they will be available.

    But generally, most suppliers do what they do because they think they can get away with it … and by nd large … they do!

    Thanks 2 many … this is the first time I have used it but couldn't find any info on when to change it, but I ordered 2 inserts and noticed both had blue strips on the outside of the media container. I knew that with the Diablo Air Dryer System it was the changing of colors on the beads that determined when to bake the media and get the water out.

     

    Yo, from what I have read you can open the insert and bake the beads, but they say you can only get about 80% of the drying power when you do that and I imagine that the more times you bake them that you get diminishing returns with each baking. I assume that the reason is because they utilize a molecular sieve in one part of the media container and the other part looks like charcoal. It would be a heck of a mess trying to bake the beads and then put them back into the container getting the two kinds of media mixed up. On top of that the beads need to be jam-packed in the container or high pressure air will create "channeling" within the plastic media container allowing the air to pass through without a good scrubbing to get the water out. Or at least that is my understanding of it.

    Again, thanks 2many for clearing that up for me

    OOPS … Sorry 'bout that … MY BAD

    All my eastern European guns (Uragan, Vulcan Tactic, Edgun, Cricket … as well as my not so eastern European guns like the Wildcat, Impact ((gen 1)) etc. will double load in a heartbeat. Don't ask me how I know 😵 I'm probably the only one in the world that could double load on a single shot tray 💩

    Have been thinking about getting a TV for a long time, but other toys keep jumping up at me just about the time I'm about to pull the trigger on the Vet. The trouble is … every time I get to the point where I think I have found a gun that I just can't live without … I'll wait about a month and something else will convince me that I'll die unless I get this other one … until the next month 😁

    Life DOES get complicated 😎

    While you are playing around trying to get used to the operation of the cocking lever and magazine insertion and pellet probe loading … be careful or you may accidentally double load the gun with 2 pellets in the barrel.

    If you are not familiar with pcp rifles … take your time … patience is your friend.

    I have one with the nipple and if you look at the nipple and the oring around it and then look inside the din housing you see that the two holes are past the end of the threads. If it is leaking through the holes you don't have the din screwed in quite far enough to cover the holes or the oring might not be sealing the two pieces together. Try screwing the din just a little bit farther in the housing and see if that doesn't fix the leak. Get it snug, but not too tight. I know they say you only have to hand tighten it but you may have to put a little torque on it to get a complete seal. Don't "manhandle it" just get it very snug … if the oring is right it should seal.

    Southern Gunner has 3 videos on You Tube about the Omega Air Charger. Take a look at the one entitled "Omega 3 years later and still just as good as day 1". That video was taken 2 years ago and I got in touch with him and he said that he is still using the same Omega with no problems.

    Your mileage may vary but I believe that it is as well made as any Chinese compressor out there. Just be sure to let the water flow through the radiator for about 5 minutes after using it for a fill. Mine goes from 3.000 psi to 4,500 in 42 minutes … not fast, but slow and steady.

    If you are getting the Air Charger make sure you have a good filter between the compressor and your tank. Yeah I know that you can bleed off a lot of the moisture by purging t6he compressor every 15 minutes or so … but it doesn't take a lot of moisture getting in your gun to create super headaches. If you are going to all the expense of buying a pcp and a compressor, it only makes sense to ensure what goes in your gun is clean dry air. When I was using a hand pump with a filter to fill my Marauder I had a leak on the fill port and went inside the air reservoir to replace a couple of o-rings … I had corrosion throughout the tank  … it wasn't pretty. Don't do that to yourself, get a good filter!

    Checkout the Teslong Bore Scope on Amazon for $50. I always check out my tanks with it. Just plug it into a USB port and the light turns on, switch to your camera on your computer and take stills or a video … works good for checking out things we need to check every once in awhile … oh yeah, does a great job on your gun barrels also. Extremely simple to use and video quality is VERY good. And no … I have no affiliation with Teslong, but I am impressed with that product.

    It is really a dark grey color … these pictures do not capture the exact color due to the lighting … the closest to the real color is this one

    other pics appear too light

    Hope this helps, but there is no blue to the appearance to the stock

    Try to find a wooden dowel rod and push it in the barrel from the front end. Have it stop at the groove for the o-ring so you wont go past the groove with the o-ring when inserting.  Make sure you put some silicon lube on the o-ring. Patience is your friend.

    I don't think the gun would be damaged. I do think it will effect accuracy and make the gun a lot louder.

    Generally speaking … the gage on the bottle will be more accurate than the one on the gun. For one, it is bigger, it is more expensive, it is filled with glycerin. I would say that if all things are equal, the larger, more expensive, glycerin filled gage would be closer to the actual pressure than the dime store manometers on most guns. I have one of Joe Brancato's  slow fill devices on my bottle and it is almost always spot on as I checked it a Edgun EDMU electronic gage on my R5M.

    When you say "always/ reliably true" of course not, these things are mass produced and quality control is not always up to what it should be … but generally speaking I would trust a compressors or a bottle gage over one on the gun or a hand pump.

    I'll have to get back to you on this later my friend, I'm in my car and all of a sudden my car horn goes off accidentally and it's stuck … trouble is I'm following a group of Hell's Angels on the freeway … they don't look like happy campers … giving me the one fingered salute … whoops … a baseball bat … gotta go … good luck 😲

    I'll bet that you could put a dead head on the end of that 5 ft hose … pressurize it from the tank … and then expel the air from the hose for days before you would be able to get your 4500 psi fill down to 3000 psi … The correct answer to your question is they don't hold much air, that's why they are called micro bore   👈👉👇👆 😂

    I know your situation, I have the same problem of overthinking a lot of things. I need to stop imagining scenarios in my head that have a -2% chance of making any difference whatsoever. The trouble is that then …  I start thinking that it is possible that there could be a +2% chance of it making a difference in a parallel universe somewhere. 

    My therapist says I overthink too much … which gives me a lot to think about 💥

    If the battery isn't dead, you should be able to turn it on by touching and holding for a few seconds on the lower right hand corner of the screen … just push, but not too hard.
