PCP, C02, and Helium Powered Airguns / QB79 rides again
« on: August 06, 2017, 09:28:17 AM »
My old .177 QB79 sprung a leak and it only took me four times taking it apart and putting back together before I sorted it out. I think the Harbor Freight Orings may have been part of the problem. Another issue was the single CO2 cartridge adapter I was using was not working properly. It would initially fill the rifle but then would stop filling as though it had developed vapor lock or something. I'd scratch my head and think, where did all the CO2 go? I'd go to remove the cartridge and suddenly find out I had plenty of CO2 as my frozen hand proved.

Gave up on that and installed a full steel tank and everything worked!

I hacked on a spare valve yesterday and will see if I can exceed the current 750 fps I'm currently getting. I think HPA tank is in my future! It'll be a perfect Rat Gun with it's Rocker1 LDC.  ;D

I have a .177 QB79 that is leaking. I believe it's leaking from the valve since I hear the leak through the barrel. Took it apart a few weeks back and resealed, and it still leaked.

Yesterday I pulled the valve and I see the valve stem seat has a rough area that I suppose could be the source of my leak.

Is this seal replaceable? Or do I need a new valve stem? Does this look like a modified valve stem? This QB79 originally came from Mike Mellick and I believe had a tune.

Trying to find a source for valve stems and valves that is not Archer.

Hmmm the image makes it look like that rough spot is glue.

Airgun Hunting / He's Got X's on His Eyes!

Been suffering from a dry spell, rats been coming out after I'm in bed sawing logs.

Finally spied one on the new feeding station. Loaded up the newish QB78 in .22 and popped him in the neck. Knocked back, but he had enough gumption to make it around the tree where the x's suddenly appeared on his eyes.

If you look just to the left of the tree you'll seem him.

This Skunk ended up bringing me one of the killed rats over to the other side of house at the bedroom sliding door.  :o

That corner of house where she was dragging the skunk to has a hole leading to the crawl space. Two of her young ones were living under the house. Either they have left, or can't get back out.  ???

Airgun Hunting / Slow tonight. Baby rat or mouse?

At 25 yards this was one dinky target. Made a mess. I suspect no more rats tonight.

Took four shots, retrieved 2 rats. I am pretty sure the other two connect as I could hear them thrashing in the leaves after getting whacked. Maybe I'll find them in the morning.

Airgun Hunting / A Young Ratso
« on: July 18, 2017, 02:23:35 PM »
Only had one shot last night, which I took. This young one fell to the Sumatra. Video did not capture the moment, but I will say the rat dropped dead on the spot. Something dragged it off last night. Maybe the skunk, maybe Raccoon.

After I hit the bed they come out of the woodwork. Of course.

Time to sight in other rifles at the 25 yards. I'm thinking QB78 or maybe the RWS 350 Magnum.

Poking around I came up with a very small list of Airgun Clubs.  I'd like to show them support by adding Airgun Clubs, Organizations and Airgun Ranges. Please add any Airgun Clubs, Organizations, and Ranges. I'll add them to this list, and perhaps better organize them.

Airgun Field Target is an outdoor venue, utilizing precision high-power air rifles (sometimes air pistols). The reactionary, steel animal targets are designed to fall only when the pellet hits the “Kill Zone”, requiring target-rifle accuracy. Targets are then re-set with a cord from the shooting position. The distance to the targets varies and is unknown, adding an element of range-finding ability (similar to hunting in the field). All types of air rifles may be used (but NO BB’s) and we do have some loaners available. Junior shooters are welcome and as always, they shoot FREE when accompanied by an adult club member.

Cost of the match is $5.00

Airguns have grown up…….Give it a try !
