Ha ha, beat me to it Akzle.

Any airgun that is accurate enough will do the job. Not all are. Do you want to buy one, and are looking for recommendations?

Hi Richardo, welcome to the forum. We don't see those come up for sale often. I have fired the break barrel version, but haven't tried the underlever yet.
I do know where there is a .177, Weihrauch 97 KT for sale. As new, wood thumb hole stock, Tin Bum kit fitted, FAC power, which I think is around 14 - 16 ft/pd.
If interested pm me.

I've got one in .22. It's got enough grunt for small pests.  Wouldn't want to part with it now I have one. I hope one comes up for you.

Looking at the photo, is it common practice to match left and right handed police?

It seems to be quite popular to make your own pellets now. There's a couple of people "on the line" with videos.
H.m hen is one guy.

Quite a labour of love mind you, but if it wasn't too expensive I would consider it.

Also, there are these pellets that the new FX barrel liners are having great results with.
Would love to try some, but they end up around $1 each, which in air gunning terms means expensive.

That's interesting. I did wonder if it was a defect that should have been picked up at QC.
 I got some Emery paper today, and set to work on it. I managed to get all but the one big one out. It was greatly reduced, so I  polished it with some 1200 grit wet and dry, then put some air into it. I put a dab of silicone grease over the breather hole and no sign of air, yesss fixed. Unless its just ultra slow now, but time will tell.

So now, if I ever regulate another gun, I know what to check.

Yes, they are pretty deep. Having a go with Emery cloth, so will wait and see.

I have changed the o rings in the reg, so I'm certain its these crevices. I just hope I can remove enough material fo get rid of the gap, but not change too much dimension that the rings don't seal.
Anyway, not that I'm made of money, but if it doesn't work at least I can get a new tank if I had to.

I had fitted a regulator to my Air Arms S510 a while ago, and I knew I had a slow leak and put it down to me either nicking an o ring or getting a hair or something in the seal. So i set out to fix it a couple of weeks ago.
Well..... after replacing all the seals in and out of the reg, and multiple reg extractions I watched Robert Lane videos again, and his advice is that 99.99% of slow leaks from the breather hole are from deformities in the tube. So armed with that I took to inspecting the inner tube wall and it has multiple imperfections running in exactly the wrong place for me. I got one of those honing tools a while ago, and thought maybe I could polish it out, but after a minute of that, the cracks stand out even more now that it's semi polished.

So i'm asking those with engineering experience what they think, and if a can succeed with either honing or some form of polishing these cracks out enough to get a seal?

Here's a couple of photos, one clearer than the other, but one shows how deep they are. The hole you see is the breather hole drilled through the tank.

Good advice from mintie there. Know where it's at first.

Mike, here's the 44 and the 75 style. Of course easy for me to sit here and suggest when I wouldn't know where to start building one.

Good point re mag being set in action and open sights able to be used.

Nova, I have a camera mount you can use to put a camera behind, and with a lower powered gun like the Daisy 953, I can use the slow motion function of my camera and you will get to see the pellet flight. It's not perfect, but quite interesting.
Not a fancy camera either.
I will try find some footage and post it. You may want to have  play.
