Anybody use these?
Do they re-shape out-of-round skirts?
Yes... but I would be more comfortable buying from a known air rifle engineer rather than an unknown company. If you know that they are accurately made then they might be ok.
Dean - do you know of a known rifle engineer who makes them?
U.K.Neil he's the boy for sizers
I used a TR Robb sizer for several years and found it greatly reduced random flyers.
Not sure what 'safe place' I put it in when I packed in FT, so I may have to buy myself another, at which point I will of course find the original.
Just bought a sizer from U.K.Neil £19 delivered .
what are they made of brass? or steel?
Brass (well they were a few years back)
How do they guarantee the size ?
To machine to +/- .003mm takes some doing. Even measuring will be rather difficult.
I know Robs is tapered.
The Phil Hassel one I had was spark eroded - now that is an accurate process, really close tolerances I believe you can get + or - 4 microns!
That's the level of accuracy required. You would need a temp controlled gauge room to measure it though.
Phil did some good stuff. Pity he was so hard to deal with.
I have a welham adjustable one, used to use it all the time when prems were the pellet of choice fot ft. Very well made, its a slow taper with an adjustable depth stop. Dont bother sizing jsbs, just put a bit more time into batch testing and then buy a case, you can usually spot the batches with more damages.
What's his contact details please? Ta
Managed to get in touch with UK Neil through BBS.
