Well guys,

The new Qb-79 22 cal, arrived around 3:30 pm, my time,
read the manuals etc, cleaned the bbl,
screwed the 88/90 grm adapter into the drop down block,
after lubing the "O" rings etc, on both pcs.

Screwed in a 88 grm cylinder, loaded and fired 1st shot, nothing but a mouse fart puff??
reloaded again and the sound level was a little louder, but NOT by much,
reloaded again and the sound level came up by 3-4 times,
which sounded uniform for the next 5 shots.

Pulled out the Magnetic V-3 chrono set the spacing spec's, and fired a 5 shot strings, using 14.3 gr pellets,
average fps was 425-450 fps, temp was 65*.

Sounded kinda weak to me.
Will shoot some more tomorrow, I feel that some mods are in the cards. :twisted:

Tia,
Don

450 is pretty decent for .22 cal. HPA is your best mod. :twisted:

Congrats! Mine was shooting 495fps out of the box, but the qb78 has more co2 in the tube to work with than the 79, so you are probably getting a normal range for that gun. Those transfer port seals get scrunched in badly from what I've heard too and are awful restricted for air anyway. Easiest thing is to pull the barrel and breech off and switch out that port seal for something else. I used a crosman 13xx seal but I think some 1/4" poly tubing works? Anyway I probably already mentioned previously that one mod gained me over 100fps on co2.

When you thread in your 88/90gm bottle back off a half a turn from tight and re tighten. Your piercing needle is not opening up the puncture properly. This will create flow restrictions from the bottle and reduce volume/ pressure to your valve. Also as stated your transfer port needs attention.

Guys
With this AR package deal,
I also received a Valken brand name Co2, 9 oz bottle that states,
CO2 ONLY, NO HPA on it's label??
2-1/16" dia by 10" long, and has a 3K burst disc installed.

Here is the web site for this bottle,
http://www.valken.com/Tank-Valken-CO2-A ... -stamp-9oz

It appears that I can NOT use HPA in this tank??

I wanted to get a Ninja sp regulator for HPA with this tank, for the winter months use etc,
Now I am confused about this tank and it's use etc.

Can this tank be used for HPA, if the psi is kept below 3000 psi,
and with a Ninja SP reg, when I hand pump to fill it ??

I will provide more info tomorrow after I run some more shots thru it,
using the 88 grm cylinder etc.

And another Amazon package of pellets arrived a couple of hours ago,
there was lots of rattling going on inside this package, don't sound good,
open it up and found that 600+ pellets loose inside, all 3 cans had opened up during shipping,
and mixed together, WTH...... :evil:

I sent an email and awaiting their reply.

Tia,
Don

If your tank is stated as Co2 then NO it can not be used for HPA in a safe manner. You would require a HPA tank for your wite shooting. But a 9oz bottle will yield you a great shooting session on Co2.

Thank you for that info, I did not know that info.

Question,
I bought another new 88/90 grm cylinder adapter, which fits the stock drop down block,
while lubing the inside "O" ring of this new adapter,
I noticed that this new adapter has a very steeply cut angle, 45* or sharper angle,
and on the inside of the puncture pin there is a very small hole inside this pin.

I tried backing out the cyl and I can NOT move the cylinder, by hand,
it is too tight due to the internal pressure etc??.

Do I still need to back off the cyl and then retighten it back?
If so, I'll have to use my strap wrench etc.

I won't do anything until I get some more info, I don't want a Kaboom..... :shock:

Tia,
Don

No problem most people can't over come 850 or so psi pressure. You need good fore arms lol.
Your new adapter with a bleed hole in the middle should in theory elevate poor punctures. If you can't turn by hand then do not use mechanical means. But do take the oportunity to inspect your transfer port seal.
Regards

Thanks for the info,
I'll have to wait until the 88 grm cyl is used up, so I'll shoot up some pellets learning this AR,
then I'll start modding this AR, for the best accuracy/velocity etc,
it will get some time to order the parts I need for modding it.

I have :drinkers: from the Dark side, and I kinda like it, :D

I am slowly going thru the search info you passed on to me, saving the info that will help me, I hope,
I started with the oldest post first and progressing to the newest.

Thanks,
I would have NEVER figured out that combo etc for searching this site,
not very good with a plastic box. LoL

Tia,
Don

Your co2 tank should say on it 1800psi max fill pressure or something like that. My 24? Oz does anyway even though it also has a 3000psi burst disk. If you wanted to, you can safely fill that co2 tank with air to 1800psi, the same as your 88g co2 cylinders can be. You will have to fill it yourself though, with a hand pump, as businesses won't fill it for you, even to the stated max pressure. You'll get a lot less shots on that low pressure of air, though they'll be higher fps, than if you just refill it with co2. Better to buy a proper 13ci hpa tank and use it. In a pinch though, or just to try out hpa to see what kind of performance you'd get, it would work fine.

Guys
Ran into a problem,
Went to mount my Mueller 4.5x14x40mm APT scope and when I attempted to mount the 3/8 dovetail rings,
I could not get the rings to fit down on top of the action, when centered on top of the action, :evil:
the ring base would not did not have enough height to grab into the action grooves.

I tried several different make of 3/8 size rings and none of them would fit, due to the radius of the action etc,
all the ring bases I tried were flat across the base of the rings etc.

Is there rings that have a radius cut into the ring base, to fit the radius of the action??

I think I will need either med or high rings to clear the top of the barrel for this scope,

Don

Thanks,

My scope is a 30mm in diameter.

I have not been able to find these rings in 30mm size, so far.

Tia,
Don
