My 53 now shooting in 520 fps territory with virtually no recoil...Consistency is sub 5fps shot to shot .... Tony also advised me to...

Re: STOEGER XP4 ssp Pistol.

I also got try one out recently but not quite in agreement with the above post... Trigger pretty sweet but not so nice as a HW40 ...a match for the P17 clone perhaps. General build strenght not quite so good, even when comparing the P17 but biggest disappointment was velocity being a good 30 fps les...

Re: Weihrauch 45

Sorry for not chiming in before but this forum appears to have died a death. Typically looking in at my old 53 post amongst others and havent been acknowledged in months... However, your 45 Ive tuned 15 or so of these ....a real bugger to shoot accurately being the common moan. Beeman and Bowkett bo...

Re: 53k

This one shoots much better but only because of the internal modifications similar to the work carried on a top air rifle tune up....Purpose machined Delrin guide rod inside a special mainspring which slips over the existing guide in the grip . with nice running fits...piston slip washer and a speci...

Re: What kind of grouping can you get with a good Haenel 28?

Ok up-date ....you cannot do much to this 28 ....the mainspring is pressumably quite weak to facilitate loading with a beautiful but nonetheless inefficient design for mechanical advantage, with anymore compression likely to wreck the action or your wrist. I did find that running up a PTFE head with...

Re: What kind of grouping can you get with a good Haenel 28?

I looked into trying to improve the 28 a few years back but came up blank.. The leather washer had been replaced and was well lubed in what smelt like linseed which was probably ideal, while the fits of the piston and guide rod of good quality typical of firearm quality build pistols of this type .....

Re: Walther LP53K

Cheers buddy who knows mate we may become part of an illustrious club .... The evolution of the lp53 I don't know why but I'm getting more out of it. This on paper should not be the case due to the shorter sight base potentially reducing accuracy but I think the reason is I'm handling the recoil bet...

Re: Walther LP53K

I'm afraid I've just performed the cardinal sin and chopped my excellent condition lp53 down like Lens.. I must say a special thankyou to Len for his advice. I'm an engineer myself but nothing like first hand experience of the job, especially as Len had done such a superb job.... I must admit to hug...
