No problem. I think you did just fine for never knowing the pistol.
It'd be foolish to say that we can learn from each other and as I said
I love your stippling idea, nice completion. A certain amount of safety
Factor must be used with another's gun I agree.

Stippling is very cool!

Reaper: say again, please; there seems to be a missing link.


I don't think that this is a secret:

Reaper:
Quote:
We'll if u look inside the holes on your mags you will see little rails, and the hole tapers near the front of the mag.
I polish these rails out and make a bevel angle so the transfer port reads the mag chamber better. The factory mags swage the pellet so small that it barely bites the rifling on its way down the barrel resulting in loss of pressure( velocity ) and loose groups.

WTF? I don't see any such quote in this thread.

The "quote" is from a private PM from Reaper.

I never realized that there was a separate mag for BBs...until I just opened up the package with the instruction manual in it. :oops:

I appreciate the fact that Ace is just trying to improve my Vigilante so that I won't have to worry about having any problems with it. :)

I am all thumbs when it comes to modding my air guns. :rolleyes:

Hey! Another dude in the Okanagan! Whereabouts are you at?

Ace, that stippling looks fantastic. I think I might have to adopt that technique on my 357. :)
