Reply To: My first ever bullpup(s), the Vulcan(s)
Apparently, my Gen2 Vulcans (.25) did not come with a reservoir ‘bleed screw’ anymore. Confirmed it with Pertr from TopGun-Airguns who was also surprised as he checked one of his new in-stock guns. He will check with Airgun Technologies “why”. Maybe cost cutting, albeit that’s not a smart way to cut costs on a product that many decide to buy because it’s easy to service and adjust. It’s much more convenient to bleed off instead of shooting off the air inside.
I came to realize this as I was about to remove the front gauge for sending it for replacement and wanted to bleed the reservoir. My gauge seems to get stuck at 210bar even as I fill from a 250bar tank. Petr will take care of it including shipping, and while the parts are with him he will also threw in a free internal “silent-tune”. Great service!
I did some shooting today and some chrono (Combro) shot strings. Using unsorted JSB and AA 26gr’s, did great at 50 yards, but only around 2 inches at 100 yard so far (albeit it was consistent) . I was at an indoors range, so I suspect either: (1) pellets or (2) scope. Cannot be me or the rifle! I used a one-piece bench rest. I am sure it needs some cleaning, the barrel looked pretty filthy when I unscrewed the shroud. Will post some details and couple of groups later as I go trough my notes.
