    I have seen many shooters (with walther) change the original deposit for fixed one with quickfill. This cylinder seem screwed into the regulator body.
    The question is this, is this tube part of a commercial airgun? Which model? Is it completely custom? In that case ... How thick would the aluminum have to be?

    I think you are looking at the famous Mick Tromans TITANIUM ! :eek: cylinder polished up so it looks like its permanently fixed on the regulator...

    Is this what you have seen like these photos ? if yes, look at the Sales section, as some STB members list their titanium Walthers there...

    The rifle shown in the 1st and 2nd photo's has an aluminium cylinder with quickfill, which is made by Nick Murphy. The outside of the regulator is machined down and screw cut to take the cylinder. The last photo shows the titanium cylinder made by Mick Tromans which screws on in exactly the same way as the original.

    fixed cyliders

    yes the 1st 2 are nick murphy mods and the reg is turned to except the cylinder ,that gun is now owned by berty
    mick tromans has also done a few with titaiuniun cyliders screwed onto regs ,,,i have one

    the only issue with having the reg and tube as one is that if you want to do any work on the reg or valve you have do dump all the air out .

    This was my suspicion. I buy a spoiled regulator from friend and I was looking for doing something similar... but maybe I can contact Nick Murphy for the job.
