    AK/SVU/SVD rail mounts

    I think you may well be right. I'm sure one of mine didn't fit properly on an AK, but did on my SVD. That said, in the end I bought a POSP for my SVD, which fitted perfectly and was centered. Bit more expensive though.

    AK/SVU/SVD rail mounts

    You can get Sportsmatch scope mounts that are adjustable for both windage and elevation, so you could get the scope centred more accurately. That said, your scope looks to be set quite high on the mount. I'd suggest looking for some low mounts to bring the scope nearer to the barrel, as you may end up with insufficient depression on the scope cross-hairs to be able to get an accurate zero. The side mount also looks quite high on the side of the AK receiver. Mine always had the scope mount only about 10mm above the barrel. That looks nearer an inch at least.

    Sold a RIF without defense

    It really is about time the whole VCRA f**kup was looked at properly as regards airsoft weapons. I've stopped airsoft now (way too old), but shoot air weapons at a local club. I have a Sig Sauer MCX CO2 powered 0.177 air rifle that looks exactly like the real thing, but is far more lethal than an airsoft version of the same rifle (if there is one). But the only stipulation on buying it is that I'm over 18. But now I've stopped playing airsoft I can't legally buy a non-lethal airsoft version of the same thing (if there is one) unless it's 51% a bright colour. That is really stupid and shows just how out of touch our MPs are when they drafted the legislation. Just how many people have been killed by being hit with an airsoft BB? Answer = zero. Not zero for airguns or real guns though.

    The Dorset Gun Company (Formerly A1 Airsoft)

    Just for an update, Dorset Gun Co are now a Section 5 Firearms dealership and no longer deal in airsoft of any kind.
  5. You can probably get the whole valve system changed for one that used by airgun shooters. It will need a bleed valve and guage, as you cannot release the fill adaptor from the gun, or smaller bottle, without releasing the pressure in the connection tube. Search online for local gun shops who should be able to point you in the direction of a dive shop that can do the swap for you, although you will have to fully de-pressurise the cylinder before they can work on it.

    Something fell out of my new rifle

    I was always under the impression that the CM16 had a moulded in flash hider that could not be removed. Has that changed?

    SA80 rail wobble

    It's a few years since I had an AA SA80 (actually I had 3) and one was turned into the V2 with the rail system. I bought my rail from Hong Kong. It was made for the G&G model but fitted perfectly with no wobble at all, but it's so long now I can't remember how it was attached.

    SA80 rail wobble

    Army Armament and G&G are usually fully compatible, so if it fits G&G it should fit AA. Are you sure it is the correct rail system for the AA? There were different ones for different makes of SA80.
  9. It will depend a lot on what pistol you like. What have you seen that looks good to you? On that may depend what manufacturer makes the type you want. The best are Tokyo Marui ("TM"), but they tend to be plastic and usually sub 300fps.

    G&P V2 gearbox overspin - HELP

    Are you sure that the small spring that returns the moving part of the trigger block has been hooked back on, or isn't otherwise broken?

    Target Shooting.

    If you want to try a club then look at what they shoot. Our club in Poole is open to almost anyone. We have by far the largest section in airguns, but plently of live fire members as well. As a 25 yard indoor range we can't cope with shotgun enthusiasts, but most everything else is welcome, including black powder. Only thing we don't do is airsoft. And we are very welcoming. From 10yo kids to 80yo+ and both sexes, all are welcome. If you are near Poole try Parkstone Gun Club.

    Target Shooting.

    I've taken the mod off of my S400 and put an air stripper on. The crack on firing is very nice, although nowhere near the volume of a 0.38 being fired in a small, indoor range. Definitely look for a local club. If you can find one with both indoor and outdoor ranges then you open up your shooting options.
  13. What the twit doesn't realise is that the CCJ will stay on his credit record, so if he wants a bank loan, mortgage or a new credit card then that will show up and will probably mean he will be declined, unless he pays up very quickly. If he doesn't, then consider using the County Court Bailiff to attend at his home.. Unfortunately they are not as relentless at the High Court Bailiffs (think "Can't pay, we'll take it away") as they deal with larger amounts and have greater powers of enforcement.

    Target Shooting.

    I had a Weihrauch HW97K spring underlever, as well as the PCP and found it almost as accurate as the AA S400. I sold it to a mate in the gun club, as I have problem with my shoulder and could not cock it easily. He's now shooting groups that almost match mine on 20 meter bench rest competitions, where the central ring is only about 5.5mm across. According to our local RFD the HW97K, which has a 12in barrel, is the most accurate rifle that Weihrauch produce, according to their own tests.

    Target Shooting.

    If those targets were at 100 yards on open sights then that is bloody good shooting. Was that rested or freehand? I only shoot PCP and CO2 rifle & pistol these days at our local gun club and have seen people there shooting .22LR (AR) and 7.62 (AK) rested with a scope at 25 yards and scoring far worse than that. Mind you, I think some of them only have an FAC for the "my pr**ks bigger than yours" effect, as they don't have a clue how to shoot properly. Given their rifles I could probably put all within the 10 ring. With my PCPs (AA S200 & S400) at our club range I'm rarely outside of the inner ring at 25 yards on a 20 meter bench rest target.
