    ...has anyone ever bought one of these ?

    any feedback ? pros & cons.... especially for 12 lb/ft conversion :confused:

    If its do-able, will look into it, but the wood stock is ripe for the winter log fire methinks :D

    had the fore runner to this the haneal b96 based on the steyr lp5 pistol chasis
    the self cocking is disabled, the action is cocked with the toggle at side of action on cocking the 5 shot mag index,s to take the next shot
    Steve Gallop tried converting it to 12ftlb but it only got up to 10ftlb as the volume in the reg is to small and it needed a reg extension to increase to 12 ftlb which required 3.5mm high tensile cap head screw (which I could not locate)
    As it fires across a open slot even a very small amount some is lost And from a 200 shot 6ftlb rifle would only do about 30 at 10ftlb due to the high reg pressure needed
    It was good fun but limited use because of the low shot count
