Hi everyone
Reluctantly for sale is my NiteSite NS200.
This was a mission to get into NZ at great financial and time cost.

Used less than 2 dozen times (at a conservative guess)

At the time, this was the top of the NiteSite range. I am looking for $1200.

It has a range of 200+ yards and retains your current scope that is easily mounted and removed without adjusting your zero! I would keep this if I could but an opportunity to buy something else has arisen and unfortunately this just hasn't been used enough to justify it!

Here is a review and some further info

Selling to clear up some space.

Mint condition - came off the rifle awhile ago and just sitting now.

3-9x40 with the BDC Reticle (that can be used with Nikon's free software for aimpoints)

Excellent light transmission and clarity.

I'm looking for $230 + shipping

I'm lucky enough to have access to this place to shoot rabbits. Can't get over as frequently as I'd like though because it's booked so often during the Summer!

General Discussion / YouTube Chan: Drone footage and other stuff
« on: December 25, 2014, 10:14:49 AM »
My partner just bought herself a drone as she's an avid film maker. Over the last couple of days of nice weather we've been trekking around Auckland's "sights" and made a couple of quick videos.

Thought some of you may be interested!

The drone is a DJI Phantom 2 with a GoPro 3+ (Need to buy a 4...) on it for those who want to know. It's pretty fun to fly! There's actually footage of some Kiwi hunters on YouTube using one to scare game birds to fly towards them; they flew the drone wide and past the birds and came back onto them (the range is 1km, max height 400m)

For Sale, Wanted, Spotted / Wanted: Bunny Buster Slim Jim
« on: November 29, 2014, 08:54:07 PM »
Hi everyone
Sold my Slim Jim a couple of months ago when I went on a selling spree to buy some car parts. As with these sorts of things, now I'm in need of a short, lightweight suppressor.


Modifications / 'Charon' - Ecko's Bullpup Project
« on: July 16, 2014, 09:41:45 AM »
Sorry guys I know it's not an air gun but I like this crowd!! :)
So much valuable information and knowledge here and I'd like to get everyone's input.

In Greek mythology, Charon is the ferryman of Hades who carries souls of the newly deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead.

I'm currently in the US and whilst being here have had the generous from someone back home of access to their land to shoot some possums and bunnies up. With that said, I thought it was time to build up a new toy!

Any excuse to spend money, right?

The goal of the gun is a compact, accurate, and reliable rifle to shoot subsonics at ranges of up to 100 yards for rabbits, possums, and plinking.

Will be ordering a drop-in bullpup kit.
This is the High Tower Armory 90/22 kit, in 'Olive Drab' (sample picture below)

A few other "upgrades" I decided to buy while I'm here and bring back with me are:

Volquartsen Target Hammer to lighten trigger pull
Volquartsen Surestrike Firing Pin
Volquartsen Exact Edge extractor (hopefully increasing reliability to cycle with subs)
Volquartsen Recoil Buffer
Kidd Innovations Guide Rod (with different weighted springs)
High Tower Armory Magazine couplers
3x Genuine Ruger 10rd mags (assuming rifle will come with 4th)

Olive Drab 42" Rifle Case to match the rifle! Only $30US!

These are just parts I chose to buy based on reviews online and other forums. If they do not meet my expectations I'll upgrade again down the line, but since everything is so cheap here I thought better to take the risk now. I imagine I'll be happy with them nonetheless.

With an 18" 10/22 barrel the rifle will only be 26" long, falling short of the legal OAL requirement of 30".
With this being the case I have been recommended to permanently affix a suppressor to the barrel. I will probably hidden pin and weld (or just weld?) it on. Does this suffice to achieve minimum OAL?

Down the line I plan to buy a 22" Whistlepig barrel and see if I can get an overbarrel suppressor made up or buy one to sit flush with the front of the 90/22 stock.

Also ordered 4 more red LED torches from DX (I think they lose power over time) and a couple of 350 lumen white LED torches to give a try.

Any tips, advice, etc. is greatly appreciated!

This is my first 10/22, third rimfire rifle, and first bullpup build. Admittedly I would have loved an EdGun Matador PCP but this is a fair bit cheaper, and I love a good project!

General Airgun Discussion / Importing bull pup stock for 10/22
« on: July 08, 2014, 09:40:40 AM »
Posed the question on the sister forum but I thought some of you may have an input too.


In the USA ATM and looking at the possibility of bringing a 10/22 bullpup stock (High Tower Armory) back.
Is this a legal item in nz (a cat) and how long will a permit to import take to go through? From there can I just throw it in my suitcase?

From the looks of things it is an A-Cat. I'm trying to get hold of the TSA Manager at LAX to talk to about it but couldn't get through today.

The stock splits into two halves (length ways, opening like a book)
