    Hi guys,I'm a member of most airgun and shooting forums on the internet but didn't know about this one till yesterday.

    I'm Matthew,15 year old from West Yorkshire and shoot at Pontefract Air Rifle Club

    My FT setup is an Air Arms MPR with a 32x MTC Viper with a few modifications (Hamster,butt pad spacer and a sidewheel pointer which have all been milled or turned by me, also a UkNeil air stripper)

    [​IMG]

    My new HFT setup is a BSA Ultra,It has been regulated and tuned,with an Hawke 4-12 x 50 scope (Looking to get a fixed mag Viper soon) modifications include carbon wrapped blowback shroud,turned pellet probe/bolt and butt spacer,all made by me.

    Aswell as those 2 guns, I also have another 3 rifles, Hatsan 85XTH .22, Hatsan 55s .177 and an Air Arms S400 Superlite Hunter green carbine in .177...also own 3 pistols, a crosman 357W,Beretta 92FS and a Weihrauch HW40.

    Matthew,

    A very warm welcome to you, nice rifles there. Great that you do most of your own work, ever considered becoming a gunsmith?

    Haven't given it much thought but have been making Hamsters,pull through kits and modified shrouds/silencers for quite a while and recently began tuning and polishing my hatsan springer so it could be an option :)

    Welcome Matt. Good to see you again.
    You sound as if you're rigged to compete - the last time I spoke to you, you expressed no interest in comps.

    Good to have you on board.

    Regards to your Mum & Dad :)
