Reply To: MORE WILDCAT EXPERIMENTS
Thanks RJ, hsnmz, and Kitpanenut for your great ideas… I went back to work today buy just as soon as I have the time I will get started on some of these things. And by the way RJ, yes I will be doing one thing at a time and then shooting over my chrono to see the effect if any…and then move on to the next thing and repeat the process. I keep notes on everything I do so I will see the results of these things right away. One of the things I am interested in doing soon is putting a lighter valve pin return spring…Hsnmz I will leave it to you to find out what the O.D. and I.D. of the Boss seat is…but if the OD is 8mm and the ID is say 6.5mm as opposed to mine that is 5.5mm ID then we are in business! Hee Hee!
And Sylvan, I totally agree with your suggestions…when I got my first Huma prototype last summer I had to take her apart again anyway, so I watched the videos by “AirRifleTech” and did the complete Wildcat disassembly and also the Wildcat block tuning. I polished every part with 1200 wet sand paper out to a mirror finish. Regarding your Impact and Crown…they have their place but to me nothing compares to my Wildcat. One of the things I love is its simplicity…you get a barrel, an air tube, a place for the magazine, a cocking lever placed ergonomically perfect, and a stock to hold it all in…there is a saying in my painting and decorating trade that says “Elegance is Simplicity, and Simplicity is Elegance”. To me that describes my Wildcat to a T…Simply Elegant!
Always the best, Chuck
