Thank you. You have been very helpful!

    I forgot to ask. When getting an air rifle from lets say Europe, and the gun is sub 12 fpe, how can I “convert” it to US “standards”?

    “weatherby”I suppose they are mixed up all the way:)

    The current Royale series in full power .25 versions seen in NL/Be have mostly 2 power settings.
    However I have owned Swedish 10 joule .25 versions of the Bobcat MKII and a R500 black pepper, which both had 3 power settings.
    I currently own a full power .177 R400 field target, and that one also has got 3 power settings.
    Never seen a .177 or .22 Royale/Bobcat with only 2 power settings, I think it’s a .25 thing only.

    Kind regards,

    Gijs

    
NL/BE as in Netherlands and Belgium???
    Interesting that the versions vary from country to country. Anyhow, can you “upgrade” a 10 joule gun to a 45 joule gun, by simply changing the regulator?! (Assuming that that is how they lower the power?).
    Now that you are mentioning it, I remember reading something about it as well. .25 only comes with two power settings and the .177/.22 in three. At least here in the USA, I guess…

    Thank,

    Kmd

    Yup, indeed, Netherlands and Belgium:)
    To crank up the power, the inner transfer port has to be drilled to 4.5mm, the valve retainer has to be drilled open to let it vent to atmospheric pressure, and a extra hammer weight has to be added.
    The R500 was unregulated, the Bobcat MKII is always regulated.
    I had to play around a bit with the reg pressure as well to get the Bobcat at the desired 60 joules.
    Great guns though, I currently have 2, a Boss and the R400FT. After holidays in Sweden this number might increase again;)

    To upgrade from 10j you need a Kit of parts to replace the Old ones.

    Here are kits for different types of FX rifles

    Hi Tony, I made/changed these parts myself.
    The parts in the kit are the parts I mentioned which need to be changed.
    I drilled the transfer port to 4.5mm (the “static” transfer port inside the power wheel), turned a hammer weight for the hammer, and drilled a hole in the valve retainer to let it vent to atmospheric pressure.
    If I’m not mistaking, the hammer weight is only nescessary for the .25 cal.
    But it is a lot easier to just buy the kit,  not everbody has got access to a lathe and milling machine.

    Thanks for the input guys. I just ordered a Wildcat from the U.S., so the whole covering thing is irrelevant for now…

    Thanks.
