    Already reworked the pistol grip and it now has titanium forend posts, Next job is shorten the cylinder and fit a quickfill and then shorten the carbon shroud, Only shot it at 25yrds in back garden and it one holes with ease, With my EV it will do the same but you have to work harder to do it. Hopefully get to the club and saturday and give it real test but 1st impressions are good.

    Also does anyone have the tube specs to make a titanium cylinder in regards to internal dia and wall thickness and pressure ratings, Also the same for aluminium if possible.

    Hi Chris,

    Just to let you know that the full length steel cylinder cannot be shortened, the tubing is double butted so the wall thickness reduces as you go away from the existing threads & once cut isn't thick enough to support a thread at 200bar

    It's a shame really otherwise we could re-use all those full length cylinder people have laying about :D

    You can however use an AA 400 cylinder,take your gauge and filler off your existing and re-thread in the AA one.I'm pretty sure I paid £25 for the tube.[​IMG]Second one down has it on;)I put an AA Q/f on

    I'd better make full use of the last shoot of the year... if Chris finds this new gun easy there'll be no stopping him in SWEFTA or out of it for that matter.
