I shall check my 6G shortly, but thinking about it, I doubt it is 15mm.

I am sure you could something machined for a lot less than you might think.

Kind regards,

I have now found a supplier for a muzzle extension (with dovetails) for about £15 so well happy, atb, M.

Yes the muzzle ext will be fine I do wish i'd bought one of these rifles right from the start now, i'm getting great results, and very important I can shoot for long stints without rapid tiring from the weight of the rifle delighted, atb, M. :D

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
I have now fitted the dioptre sights, the muzzle extension with rails for the foresight is the one made for the AA s200 it has a 15mm barrel the same as the "78" I got mine from Chambers cost only £15. The rifle shoots very well, and will do the job for me as its light, recoilless, and accurate, 1 hole groups are the norm though sadly not always when i'm shooting it unsupported, it is the only rifle that I have been able to shoot for prolonged periods for some years so I am delighted with it. I have bought this purely for bell target, it is more than capable of consistently putting a .177 pellet through a 3/8 inch hole. Of course its not of the quality of a 10 mtr target rifle I would never suggest otherwise however the "78" can easily do the job at 6yd bell target. By the way with muzzle extension & dioptre sights cost rise to over £200 you can get a good working 10mtr target rifle for that so its not necessarily a cheap option buying the "78", but if like me you must have a lighter rifle for bell target then its a good option to keep you shooting, atb, M :D

It is always worth hearing the suggestions and recommendations of other shooters.

Due to build, physical injury, etc, this is a sport where one size certainly doesn't fit all.
