    Right, having discovered the old Njr was fine and it was duff mozzies causing my at best 25 fps variation over a charge, I have now discovered the new (old TM) gun is not quite right!


    Air was leaking out of the old snap fit conector (air arms early style) as the "non return valve / pointy nipple thing was missing from the end. I belevee some people knock these out?

    A new connector has been fitted, and there seems to be no air leak as it has the nipple / non return valve fitted. Gun filled to 160 bar today 11 am and still at 160 bar 7pm tonight.

    Thing is, i shot 30 shots from 160 bar and ended at 100 bar. thats 2 bar per shot. Mozzies at around 815fps, about 10 fps variation. So accuaracy and consiostancy is fine, its just a silly amount of air being used. Tried from 190 bar and got 45 shots when pressure had dropped to 100 bar

    any ideas what could be causing the gun to use so much air per shot? I dont know what Reg is in the gun, its a Tm action so i am presuming its an air arms reg? However, the trigger housing has a date of 2001 on the side and 80 bar written on it in some sort of black marker.

    As a comaprrison, my Njr action that has a Nick Murphy reg fitted, which has 93 bar written on the side of the trigger housing used about 20 bar over 40 shots at around the same fps and consisatancy!!! I know from 160 bar with the Njr i usually get well over 100 shots before hitting 100 bar.

    could be the reg pressure set to high or to low ie;using to much air/my steyr usees 1 bar per shot set at 810 mozzies filling to 190 bar getting 110 shoots etc,both of my steyrs do the same.is it a pro target reg if so it should be set at 110bar

    The Warden

    The "Warden" has been a great old gun ever since i baught it, Many times I have shot it and thaught it was actually better then the Pope which is Njr top gun.
    The only real fault was the huge air consumption and loss of air over a couple pf days.

    Anyway, the very clever Mr.Ostler has his hands on it and is repairing.

    Turns out my initial thaughts were correct, the Warden is another Nick Murphy gun with Reg as the POPE is.

    Turns out the leak was something to do with the hammer area. Its being sorted? So hope to have it back next week and in full working order. Will stick the Sr6 back on perhaps and have a go a sweftas Hft with it initially? May then find a mk4 for it?

    Look out Holly, this one is the best of the lot???

    And like the others, it works for God:D

    Come on Berty - keep up :)

    This place is a bit like a soap opera and you have to remember a few episodes ago - Holly has a new Anschutz with a dragon on the stock. He has named the dragon (and the gun) "Berty"

    So - he is talking about his gun - not you.

    Confused - you will be after this weeks episode of Holly and Simon talk FT ;)

    Sorry everyone

    Dave and all the people that use this site, I apologise.

    I have never been very good at following soaps, that is why I got all messes up wondering why my name was mentioned. Maybe its all the paranoia that I am suffering with, due to comments of these lads, Im worried my MARCH wont work in the sun, if my gun will breakdown etc etc, Im like a shivering wreck here worrying if any of my kit will ever work...................

    It's the religious connotations that have me baffled?
    what the heck has any of that got to do with a rifle?
    and if Simon buys another one is it going to be called "NUN":eek:
