As said before Casey your waisting money and time buying up parts that will not fit. Need to make your own even 0.05mm on dia or length will have drastic effect so just think how much that will cost as a one off on every part where you could be 5mm out. 100 slightly different parts of each, see the problem.


Not necessarilly any machining theres a lot more to it than that.
Wouldnt risk boring out to 10mm dia.

Probe type major pain in the arse prone to packing up and adding unecessary length and stupid weight in easy to bang out brass. Shooters have shot since inception without guages well over 30 odd years, how did they get on- know your kit if know get 100 shots from 200bar and course is 50 shots, why the disbelief.

Assuming got the power thats easy, its getting it to shoot right but also cure the various other problems.

Last piccy of admins is ancient its an S1 pre 2008. Will get more poke with heavies than lighter.
Theyre in for shock when HP arrives, seen 7.
Pretty sure they have tested each but can see several issues straight away plus not knowing the market, have a lot to learn.
If a jobs worth doing, do it right or not at all.

I enjoy the journey Jon. The parts are pretty cheap - have machinist friends who can make them very inexpensively for me. Have some PEEK valves that will be done next week to replace the factory.

ADMINMASTER - will reach out to Anschutz USA about power mod.

Still missing the point and its not sinking in, anyone can draw something up but no knowledge or expertise in whats required clutching at strings, worlds full of them copying as that's all they can do brainless.

Hence and proves the point earlier when asking what to do.

Appreciate the support. Honestly though Jon, if sending it to you is the only good option and that's not feasible...what's a shooter to do? Buy a Steyr I suppose?
