glad I am not the only one who misunderstood...thanks for the warning.
I think mate that you are doing the best thing. Inform Air Arms of this issue and get follow up from them, I'm pretty sure that it would be addressed. You're one of the blokes that knows exactly what what he's talking about.
thanks for the info Spartan, appreciated buddy, i wasn,t getting at you ,just the person who stated stick a claim in, sad sorry state of affairs when all people think about is claim claim claim, but nice one for posting your findings , cheers
I wouldn't go that far he ain't a clue I am surprised he's still got all his fingers
Don’t give up Spartan, you did the right thing. Anything that makes people more aware of the danger of high pressure air components has got to be good. When you consider that a standard workshop compressor operates at around 150 p.s.i. and can cause horrific injuries if faulty or damaged. PCP air weapons operate at nearly 20 times that pressure, so they need to be treated with some respect I think, and users certainly need to be aware of the potential hazards.
This is why i dont visit forums very often, totally pointless trying to help some people!!
Go on mate enlighten the unworthy with your experience regarding this statement please. Maybe with some examples that would be cool.
Lol my bad
I thought Spartan was someone else. The someone else is someone I know that doesn't have a clue. Easy mistake hopefully this Spartan has a clue.
My apologies to this Spartan
To many Spartans for my liking
I think any anitamper talk should be band from this site.
Its all its you do it on you own time . Aa have warranties
People have trades
Sorry I couldn't disagree more.
The OP was sharing some valuable safety information based on his experience. He wasn't talking about removing anti tampers.
AA do have a warranty but when that's expired why would send your rifle back to them if you have the skill / experience to repair it yourself?
The site does have a anti tamper thing.
But if you want to mess with your own gun great.
I think you need a qualified person to do the work to give to to do the work and give coments
I work with a lot of people to day who say they are are carpenters.
I did a 4 year trade
They did 6 months in tech
They know nout
Been in my trade 42 yrs.
All you do is pick up their pieces
All talk no knowledge
This site doesn't have a rule forbidding discussion about anti tamper. But like another other subject if we get the impression the subject is to modify guns in a dangerous or illegal way we'll remove it because we don't want people hurting themselves or getting into trouble.
For what it's worth I had a gauge cover blow and hit me in back of leg off some years ago when being filled from a tank (can't remember the make), someone else was filling. The cylinder was being filled behind the line. The theory was the valve was opened too fast, but I'm not convinced that it should fail like that anyway, what is too fast? The gauge had a hole, but it was never going to be able to allow 200 bar to flow past it.
Probably a good heads up to not be looking directly at gauges when filling and/or wear protection for the eyes. HPA and bits of dirt and eyeballs aren't best of friends...
Sound like we all need to where to viz
And all air tubes on guns tested like our bottles. With mot for our guns to show they are safe
Removable air tubes have a 10 year life span. It's etched on them.
I'm a trained and experienced muli-disaplined engineer (Electronics, Electrical, mechanical and embedded software) so I count myself as having some knowledge.
But I am also willing to learn from other people experience and thank them for sharing it.
To turn up in a public place and use a weapon powered by a air tube should be safe.
Well does that at the next comp if your air tubes is out of date and no test you can not shoot
