    Great video 

    Did I understand correctly they said there was additional plenum capacity milled into the other parts on the Impact PP  ?

    Yes.  The extra volume being milled into the receiver began prior to the plenum.

    Barrel straightening.  It's part of the  barrel manufacturing process.

    Great video, very different and much more personal format, I remember all that Fred is talking about, he worked at Webley whilst a freind of mine was also there.

    Although I looked at the AXSOR at the time it didn't really excite me, what caught my attention later was a video with an elderly lady shooting the semi auto back in the mid 2000's I think, I spotted it on a display screen whilst walkng around the IWA show in Germany!

    A lot of liner tweaking (barrel straightening) shown…..

    How does the end user do this as they ship/swap/store liners?

    Fred –

    If you understand the way it all works, you can build or have the equipment built for you, and you can then do it yourself.

    The measurement part of the whole thing is easy to put together.  Just copy what you see above, with a .0005" reading dial indicator, two narrow "V" blocks that are solidly mounted and "true position (inline) to about .0005".  You don't need the straightening part of it if your barrels are…straight.

    It's really clear how it works.

    It is frightening that they do it ….. the barrels are made right there and they don't make it across the room without becoming  warped and needing this TLC….how do end users EVER keep them straight?

    There is nothing permanent with this process – not like they are straightening them and then heat treating.

    My first PCP was a FX bobcat because of Ted, I now own 4 PCPs 3 of them FX and a Edgun.They are fantastic guns and FX is a fantastic company. AEAC Id like to thank you for such a excellent interview and video. FX and (all) the people involved in your company, keep up the great work producing some of the best air guns out there.

    Fred I would assume that when you IMPRESS rifling with force through the outside of a metal barrel liner tube, tension will be created in the barrel liner tube causing some minor stress and strain in the metal thus some warpage . I have 4 FX barrels and 2 FX rifles. Knock on wood no problems yet.  One is an early model Impact, the other is an early model Bobcat that was a .25 and I had a 600mm .22 barrel installed because I wanted the higher capacity air cylinder that only came on the .25 .  I assume the slight warpage occurred as the rifling was impressed not when the barrel laiden cart was pushed across the floor.  The fact that FX checks and corrects barrels is all I need to know, that and my experience with FX, Diana, Weirich, My old Daisys' and Crosman and Benjamin pumps.  If my powder burner barrels get hot, the POI begins to move around so I have to drape a wet towel over the barrel to cool them prior to removing prairie dogs from my uncle's ranch.  Never had to do that with any of my air rifles.
