    OK, I know there is a RAW string. But I don't want to look through 250 pages to find out if anyone is talking about repairs. So would someone help me here please.

    I can't find anything about repairs, removing the regulator, o'ring sizes, videos of "how to". nothin. No videos about adjusting the regulator ot removing the barrel. No info on trigger adjustment. Nothing about tuning the gun. 

    So, does that mean it doesn't exist, or that I just can't find it? I'm usually pretty good with a search engine.

    If you folks wouldn't mind posting a link or two here for me, that would be great. That is unless I'm right and there isn't much out there.

    I feel ya Bill. I couldn’t find anything on my TM1000 either. So I just took it apart, taking plenty of photos so it could go back together. Orings I just remove and either measure or sit them next to the lots and lots of sizes I have for my FX, Cricket, Vulcan, etc. 99% of the time I find one that matches. Sad that it “seems” a schematic and list of parts doesn’t exist like it does for most “imported” guns…

    All I found was this on the RAW web site:

    Thanks C'Cut. There isn't a lot of stuff there, but there are few things useful.. I'll be sure to arrive early at the next match. Terry V has wealth of knowledge and I can pick his brain a little. 

    I wanted to hear someone talk about adjustint the HST and reg pressures that work with the TM1000. I'm going to check where mine is set and see if I can figure anything out about it. It shoots the 10's very well at about 915 or so. But the 13's walk around a bit like something isn't right. And, it is shooting about 750 fps.

    Here's my guide to swapping calibers, probes, etc.  Not extensive on maintenance, but it is some info.  There are manuals on Theoben Rapids from the UK folks I've found online too-I will post a link to those when I find them later.

    Guide to swapping RAW barrels, calibers, probes, etc.

    Also, once I receive my BM500 action, I'll share more info on that gun too.

    If you want to see a thread on the range of adjustments of the HST on energy, I have a thread for that I can link to as well…

    Hey guys,

        You may already know this but some I don’t think do; the RAW is an evolution of the Theoben line. The HM1000’s foundation is from the Rapid. There has been quite a few changes but there is really a lot that is the same.

    Here is a service guide to the Theoben Rapid MK2:

    It's spot on observation. 

    We the owners of RAW looks as we have put our ego in it.

    We just post the looks of new stocks etc but nothing technical. 

    I have also felt that RAW Company also does not feel it good if any technical question or measures/ specs are asked from them which is 180 degree opposite of what FX does.

    There should be step by step procedure of adjustments of trigger, regulator and HST  adjustment balance and troubleshooting. 

    I recently posted about converting  .25 to  .22.

    +1 for "xz10"'s comments.

    The RAW rigs are so straight forward no instructions are needed. Also tis close enough to get your information from part Theoben designs.  You'll naturally need a reg checker if adjusting that, everything else is straight forward and a total strip down takes mere minutes.  You wont even need to take pictures ( tho it might still be a nice idea.

    Thank you Derrick for elaborating on what I was saying and taking the time to find and post the link to the manual.  I have been crazy busy at work lately and didn’t have the time to search for it to post the link here-so thank you for doing that!

    Looks like a nice upgraded probe with O rings. Just picked from the net to share.
