Your being a bit of a picky buttock when discussing variants.

Isn't that exactly the point when discussing variants?

Quite frankly, Stephen - you are being a bit of a horse's posterior here - it seems that whenever someone expresses an opinion contrary to yours, or calls your bluff on your lack of knowledge, you have to resort to name calling to side step the issue. I for one, am not impressed by your condescending comments, and your readiness throughout this thread to hurl insults at others, while acting the part of some prissy, know-it-all prima donna.

You babble on with a load of rubbish, then come back name calling and back-pedaling with "what I really meant was" etc, etc, .....ad nauseum.
I guess in the end, you and I must agree to disagree on but one point - you are a legend in your own mind.

And, BTW:

Obviously this guy at Malpas who is doing the mod, could have copied from the outfit ......do you have any details?

I wasn't talking about our side - I was talking about the fellow in the UK that has done quite a number of these conversions, to Walthers and Webleys.

but it bothers the hell out of me when someone refers to an airgun or even a firearm for that matter as a "weapon" in anything other than law enforcement and military applications

It's all to do with political correctness - if the term "weapon" is used, it is considered "scary" by the antis - more so than just "firearm". It is just one of the terms that the media use to vilify a gun, so some folks prefer to use a less scary term.

It is no different than some folks that get really bent out of shape if they hear someone refer to a gun's "magazine" as a "clip". Most folks really don't care, but for some purists, it is a big deal.

Holy, this one really has been blown out of preportion here hasn't it? How did you get from talking about my pal's Webley to discussing proper english? And all this airgun mod talk? I don't want to know why, or how that got started. But whatever the reason, at least you kind of made up in the end. Should copy paste this and make a movie for youtube or something :P . Ah well, nothing a like a great big discussion to lower the stress, am I right? :D

Keep the peace boys,
Aaron

This is a very old post which i have just encountered by accident, while reading from the web and finding this ...
The individual stating that the 53 cannot make 495 fps is big time wrong.
I think he was basing his information on the twin mainspring set up, rather than the single spring tuning kits available for it since the demise of the original spring spares..
With the guide rod adapter and new spring, this model can consistanly hit velocites easily into the 500 fps territory and requires trimming back a bit if anything,...
The notes on its swept volume etc wrong ...
It has excellent compression ratios ...
Included is a picture of the single spring kit and delrin guide and top hat ....
Ultra smooth vibration free 495 fps
