PCP, C02, and Helium Powered Airguns / NPT to BSP fittings
« Last post by d_boom on Today at 06:09:20 AM »
My fill adapter which came with my scuba tank (Din 300 fitting) has a large diameter hose which wastes air when I refill.
I purchased a Huma microbore fill hose to replace the the large diameter hose to conserve air.  My problems is how to
adapt the Huma microbore hose with female 1/8BSP coupler on both ends, the fill adapter which uses female 1/4NPT
threads.  The Foster female adaptor has female 1/8 NPT threads again I need to go from  female 1/8 BSP to female
1/8 NPT threads.  Help, the web sights selling air tanks for airguns I have visited have nothing available.

Thank you Alan for a great article. As an ex jarhead, I've shot almost everything shootable, but just "discovered" airguns. Really into them, but still learning. Love the fact that the shooting range is now aka my backyard!

One thing I find interesting is the fact all of your guns are .22 caliber. Nothing wrong with that, but to achieve the power of say a .25 caliber, you have to use heavier pellets. As you discovered with the Bullmaster, heavier isn't always better—accuracy-wise that is.

The idea that a rapid second (or more) shot can be made, is the only reason I might buy one. The reason I wouldn't, is the trigger. The last Hatsan I owned (AT44 L), had the same issue. I wish you luck on your trigger mods, because I sure didn't have any luck with the AT44.

I should admit, that when it comes to triggers, I'm spoiled! My Cobra's factory-equipped, Timney, Calvin Elite trigger group is one of the finest money can buy.

I do understand the gun hasn't been "Hajamized", but even for a stock gun, the groups should be better than you're getting. The Gen 1, .22 Marauder I once owned, was a tack holer right out of the box. Perhaps I was lucky.

Nice video, by the way.

Hello all my fellow air gunners! Today I offer you my full video review of the Hatsan Bullmaster.
The Bullmaster is a Semi-Automatic 12 shot PCP that delivers up to 32FPE per shot as fast as you can pull the trigger.
I take this rifle through its paces to dispell some of the myths associated with semi-auto PCP's and I drag you along for the journey.

If this review provided you with any useful information or if it lacked useful information, please let me know in the comments. Your feedback is essential for me to hear so I can make the necessary adjustments to the content so it better utilizes your viewing time.

Thank you for watching!

The air charger is the same as the alpha, open design. I have about 22 hours on my air charger and so far no issues. Knock on wood!

Ah my bad ... Hope your hangs in there !!

Maybe I should know on wood, but I have about 60 hours on my Omega Air Charger without a hiccup.

Although the unit supposedly requires 110 volts, the truth is here in Roswell, the nominal line voltage is 124. On the heavy-duty, dedicated, 20 amp circuit I have the Omega plugged into, the voltage drop when running is only 2 volts. I suspect some folks end up plugging theirs into a nominal 15 amp circuit wired with #14 where the voltage drop would be considerably more. That equates to a shortened life.
The "Alpha" is just the uncased version of the air charger.  My first reseal was required at @ 85 hours.  In that time went threw 3 of the final stage check valves which were easy enough to R&R.

I've owned four shooting benches, one of which I paid $350 for. It was one of those three legged things, that rotated 360°. It always had some wobbliness to it, as did the one I had made. But this one is stiff as a board. That part, I really like!
I have also used several different benches and this one beats them all.  But it has rained almost all day and cold, at least to me, so I will try to shoot tomorrow.  Will let all know.
