Looks like it will be a great little noise maker

Your bike?  Well I guess so far you have been the only one brave/stupid enough to test ride it out of many that Ive offered.. even if you did pee in your pants a bit and shake like a handbag dog for 2 hours after you stepped off it..  ;D

The .22 is really just a warm up to kick off the thread, I may do a big ugly twin tube .50cal next as I almost have enough bits for that too..  Its a 9" rifled tube of pig doom..

All good at the mo thanks mate, Ill put it to use on the hammers and trigger parts shortly though.
I have not had a lot of joy with the rabbit magnums in choked pcps either but just for shits and giggles I turned down an old Russian TOZ .22lr barrel with a 1-16" twist and it groups them well at 50 yards in my barrel test rig..

I did genuinely shake like a dog shitting razor blades for about 2 hours!  That thing is an absolute monster :D

wot else in being planned by anyone else?

I'm planning to get involved Mike, but it will be my first pcp build so probably fairly agricultural and will be using a mix of custom and off the shelf parts to make sure I dont spend 3 years making it!

Nice tidy workshop. I reckon it is always like that. No dust on the Ducatis.
Off to a good start for the first contender.

Never thought to use .22 rimfire barrels, got heaps of them, could be another build in that, possibly using a cpi pcp eh!

Nice little 7 shot mag bolty be nasty on possys with rabbit magnums, they not really pellets, more like .22lr.
Like the old 58 cal muzzle loading bullets, they prob got too much bearing surface in rifling for airgun
barrels n that's why they dont shoot well in my airguns, the hollow base rabbit magnums should blow out to fit .223 rimfire barrels just as do in muzzleloader eh!
Let me know when you need more case hardening powder.

You right about putting the frighteners up certain people nova, my local ao pops in from time to time,for a coffee he says,but even tho we been friends for 30 years,i know he's checking up on me, local cops know exactly what i am capable of making, i been repairing modifying n building firearms for 40 years mate, been commercial bullet n ammo maker, held dealers licence for 30 years until 10 years ago, they been checking up on me ever since.

Mintie, just coz guna be your first build mate don't mean guna be a roughy,my revolver my first build n its sure not a roughy,but guess i been building hand made firearms for 49 years,my best advice is take your time measure everything well then measure it again several times before you start machining mate,then go slow,don't get impatient or rush things,if you do phuck up have good look find out where and why, bin it and do it again, i have spent almost 5 years developing my pcp revolver n got heaps bits that didn't work out, Phil's got pile phucked up bitz n pieces same as me.

Cheers mike

Your right it always looks like that after I clean it for half an hour :D
I do try to do larger woodworking and other messier jobs outside as sawdust and machinery are worst enemies in the winter... it holds moisture.

FYI: Dust doesn't settle on a Ducati..  ;)
