.177 Regulated Rifle Build
« on: June 23, 2017, 08:53:38 PM »
I've been working on this build for some time now. When the oil and gas business hit bottom here I had time to work on it but no money to purchase items that I needed. Things are finally coming back around.
The Build.
.177 Lothar Walther   .630" od 19" length
Ninja Pro2 SHP regulator
Timney trigger
Boyds Blaster Stock (yet to be purchased)

Thanks everyone.
I got the Timney off Ebay. It's for a 1903 Springfield. It's been modded a little to fit.

Looks like a Calvin Elite ... similar to what WAR is using on Warp/Flex guns.

Thanks Neil.
Pressure regulator was only at 1000psi from the factory. It had .015" worth of shims in it. I replaced those for a single .020" shim to bring the pressure up to 1250psi. We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

With the higher pressure it now response to the power adjuster.
AA 10.3 average 791fps
AA 8.4 average 840fps

Need to do a little deburr work on the valve and make a few more changes to the air flow and I'll be happy with it.

Well lets see how dropbox does.

I've been camping and have not been able to work on the rifle. I was itching to shoot it so I mounted a scope to see what kind of groups I can get. Zeroed it in at 30 yards with AA 10.3gr pellets @ 810FPS.

10 shots in the left side next to the dime.

Dropbox Links to the pics work good. It sucks that the first pictures of your build are gone. Anyways.....Nice grouping.  You gonna do a custom stock yourself?

Thanks,
Chris

I also got my air tube back from the gun drillers and machined the threads in it. Then made a end plug.

Question for ya sixshooter,
What did the gun drillers do to your air tube? I'm imagining them drilling a piece of round stock or perhaps boring some thick walled tubing to a thinner wall. I may be way off base but please elaborate....

Thanks,
Chris
