What did you do to your airgun today?
« on: August 04, 2015, 07:52:07 PM »
This has worked pretty well on a car Forum I used to follow so let's give it a go here....

Nothing is too big or too small, all the way from a full rebuild to just getting it out to oil it down....

Let's hear it!

I'll start by (hopefully) stripping my cfx down to replace the piston seal and polish the spring up etc.

I measured up and cut a bunch of alloy to length ready to machine for a 9mm pistol build..

I pulled the rekord trigger out of my 97, disassembled it, polished the sears and rebuilt it. Pretty intense couple of hours, but had fun. Smooth and crisp it is now.

I took my CFX out of the cupboard and looked at the night scope mounted thereon and sighted it down the yard. Thought it is not a bad looking rifle in its chopped form. Quite like it in fact. If the Gamo accountants released the purse strings a bit they could be build as a very good rifle out of the box. Wouldn't take much and wouldn't increase the price much. In fact if the greedy middle men were called to heel it would be cheaper.
That rotary breach, at least on mine has given not one bit of trouble over many thousands of pellets. Easy to load and good.

I have grown to like the rifle I used to hate.

I took my old Gamo 440 out of its bag, dusted it off and thought if it was worth investing in a new trigger for it and making it a custom stock as a bit of fun and to get back into a bit of wood work.
Then I put it back in the bag and turned on the TV, its the thought that counts though right??

I've shot one. They're nice. Unfortunately they need the transfer port drilled out, I'd guess to about 2-2.2mm, to lift the power beyond cadet 3P levels.
Hugh, what does your CFX look like now?
 
PS Yesterday I brought an HW77.

I was the same, ended up watching an ep of "the last ship"  and went to bed. Didn't touch any of my airguns yesterday, not even parts or pellets!       Bunch of crossman parts turned up today at work for me so I've had a look at them.

There's good info on the weihrauch owners forum, but it's not hard. There's one tricky spring to put back but I got it in a couple of minutes. Just carefully polishing with 800 grit wet  and dry paper with some water. Just check your progress to make sure you keep the angle. You will see the factory marks disappear and become polished. Moving the sear over the paper is better than running the paper over the sear. Put the paper on a hard flat surface, wet, hold the sear so you can feel it is flat then gently move it around. Honestly it's not too hard. It's made a big difference. I'm going to do all the others now.
