Hi BB1Shooter, the conversion to .22 calibre on my Ux Colt SAA is done, and works very well :) .

I machined a beater 2240 barrel I had, in which the rifling was very good. I made it 1/2'' longer that the original barrel, it's now almost flush with the fake barrel muzzle. I also re-bored one cartridge and made a new delrin rear seal/pellet holder. Pellet fit is very good, it kinda ''clicks'' in place, and the two pellets I shot went where I aimed @ 5 yards, so accuracy seems to be there. I was also pleased with the chrony results, getting 343 fps with a 14.35 grains JSB Jumbo Express; this is with no power mods at all. I will test with RWS hobby 11 grains pellets soon. I'm foreseeing very pleasant 10-15 yards plinking with this .22 6-shooter :wink: .

I still need to convert a few of my cartridges, so I'll make a good batch of .22 seals. If someone's interested in having his/her SAA converted to .22 calibre, please PM me for details.

Hi guys, I also successfully converted my ASG Dan Wesson 8'' BB revolver to .22 calibre with a rifled barrel. Accuracy yet again is much better than with BBs, and it shoots in the low 400s. If someone's interested in the conversion, please PM me for details.

No not yet. I made the PP700 barrel band on order, by the specs of the owner. If you need one we can discuss, just send me a PM :) .

Oh wow, that suggestion is something that I would love to see in the works. Now I'm really curious about the projects you have worked on. I think maybe you are really talented that's why you are able to do this. If you make that project possible, can yuo also post it here? thanks!

I was thinking of him yesterday, wondering the same. He did something for me and it turned out amazing! I sent him a pm months ago after it was done asking him about something else and the pm is still hasn't been read yet!

I hope he is well!

Ken... and others,
Regarding Airmec....
I was last in contact with François over the phone on October 30, 2020. We were making plans for me to meet with him at his home over a project I was contemplating.
Honestly, I became worried something happened to François when I was unable to reach him. No replies to PM or his personal email since now mid-November.
I tried many times to call him during the Holidays with no response.
He and I are from the same 'home town' in the Eastern Townships and I knew of his father. So we were looking forward to meeting face-to-face over 'airgun stuff'...which has not happened.

Can't really say what has become of him and I hope not the worst.

Rick
