Benjamin Marauder pistol question

Those of you who own this and have an AR stock on it, what profile of scope rings do you use to get a proper sight picture? I’m planning on getting a leapers bug buster 3-9x32 and I’m not sure if I should go for high or medium profile rings.

Hatsan flashpup .25 & hume regulator.

I'm looking into ordering a hume regulator for my flashpup. The hume website says they'll send it pre-tuned to my specifications.

Does anyone know the ballpark tuning numbers to propel a .25 JSB King 24grain at ~830fps?;

Building a PCP. Any things I ought to consider?

So this is a project I've given up on and I'm not coming back to. Also, I lost the password to my previous reddit account, so some of you lot might remember me.

ANYWAY; so far, I've got the tank and valve mostly figured out. Quite frankly, it looks janky as shit, and consists of random bits of fuckery from Home Depot. The tank itself is literally an aluminum conduit pipe; ei: most certainly never ever designed to contain any amount of Pressurized air. Maybe I'll consider a generous layer of duct tape to catch any shrapnel JUST in case. I mean, I'm fairly confident in the safety of the project as a whole, but a lot of folks have told me last time that I'm basically making a pneumatic pipe bomb.

Anyway, now here I am making sure there's no super important thing I may be completely neglecting to think about

I'm looking for a break action pistol

I have 2 rifles, 1 break action and 1 pcp . I hate pumping the pcp canister and I prefer the break action when I'm out on a long hunting trip so it has to be break action . I'm also on a bit of a budget so not something like a Sig sauer ASP . I have been leaning towards something like the ruger mark IV .177

Best magazine for Notos?

Hey all, I want to get a couple of magazines for my father's new Notos, but I recently came across a thread here that some like to jam easily. I was wondering which ones are the least likely to jam. Thanks in advance!

Diana P-Five trigger fix?

hi, I just bought the gun, the trigger is not awful as some people says, but anyway it could be quite softer.
I don't have a tool to measure it, but I have a Canik TP9 SFX and that's surely softer, while a Glock 19 I tried was nearer, so the Diana is over 6 lbs surely...

I've seen different videos and I'm confused since in my opinion there are different versions around... For example, many people say to not have outside screws in the trigger, in mine there's a set screw but there's nothing on the manual so probably the regulation is "possible but not documented" ...

anyway, probably I should let the gun break in and wait a moment before messing with trigger fixes...

Sub 12lb .22 slugs

Evening all, my rifle can put a 15.83gr pellet out at over 900fps, was wandering if it was worth trying some slugs through it for my longer range stuff. At sub 12ft lb what's your thoughts?

Cocking break barrel pushing forward

hi all, sorry if this is unclear.
I bought a break barrel Diana P-Five, some days my elbow still hurts and I don't want to stress it.

in my shed there's a sturdy metal shelf, and I noticed that if I just hold the gun and push with my body with the barrel blocked by the shelf, it's much more easy to cock it repeatedly.

obviously I covered the shelf with non scratch material and I don't push on the front sight...

But is this safe to do anyway, or it's something I should not do?

New to PCP rifles

Can anyone recommend a semi auto PCP rifle with separate hand pump starter kit? Mostly for plinking rats by my chicken coup.

UK daisy Powerline 880

I used to do air rifle shooting when I was younger and was looking at getting back into it. I already have a rifle but wanted to treat myself to a new one. I’ll attach the link below but have been struggling to find out if it’s within the uk limit as I do not have a license and am not looking to take it further then back garden shooting at the moment. Was hoping someone might know if I would need a license or not. Many thanks.

Link to the rifle:

parabolic audio scope for hunting. finishing the rail mount.

so i am trying to make a item better by turning it into another item. the item is a bird watching device with 8x magnification and a parabolic dish for listening to birds at a hundred yards.

well i am blind and love air rifle hunting. have not been able to hunt for years since going blind.

so hearing, i can hear. so parabolic hearing device hence bird song parabolic, it has a grip and dish and monocular all operated by 9v battery, all together.

i have a dovetail mount and a pickatinny rail mount both. just need to figure how to make the adjustability from the mount to the device. up down left , right, and i have been thinking of setting three different metal plates that are each thicker slightly on one end than the other with cut out slides for allen bolts to fit into and be tightened, or two metal plates one thicker on one end than the other and the other plate curved convexly on the top to slide the device left and right and keep the same angle and eack plate i would have to make that slide hole for the allen bolts to run through and into the rail mount , which is a typical scope rail mount such as a pick or dovetail rail mount, just removing the top half of that scope mount and putting the plates there to adjust. and adhereing the plate on top to the device and zeroing it , by using an electronic game call with remote and setting the air rifle in a vise with towel for firm hole but no scratches and making a shot into a refrigerator sized piece of cardboard. going and finding the hole , and putting the game call 6 inches below the hole so that , the shot will hit , say a deer in the head while it is chewing and walking in the woods. i know the sounds of a deer or hog or squirrel and thus can adjust the shot for each.

so game call making noise by way of remote to zero the parabolic dish at the sound and be those inches below the hole the air rifle made in the cardboard making an accurate audio parabolic scope for hunting blind that has a monocular so a sighted person can view and shoot through it as well. a wholly new and different invention based off the original invention. buying the bird song parabolics is cheap but making them into hunting parabolic scopes will be not so easy and will have a increased cost and thus a profit.

my question is?

does anyone have a link to suitable pieces of metal 1.5inches x 2inches that fit my needs, since i am blind i cannot see what i am buying so need one piece metal 1/116th -1/8th inch thick and 1.5wide and 2inches long thicker on one end of the length than the other.

and need one piece metal 1/16th-1//8th inch thick and 1.5inch wide x 2 inch long that is convexly curved on one side.

can anyone help me with links to those pieces and thank you in advanced, i just want to hunt again and if it helps other blind people at the same time , well awesome.

my email is blindonembo@gmail.com.

thank you.

Hatsan Mod 95, what do you think about it? Scope killer? How is the factory scope?

I'm hearing great things about the Hatsan 95 in .177, though some people are talking bout it being a scope killer? They don't mention what caliber or specific scopes other than some of the scopes were quite expensive. I'm leaning towards a 95 because it's a springer and allegedly those are more durable long-term (please correct me if I'm wrong), but the vortex (gas-piston, but it's .22-25 and I'd like .177) is also on my radar. Has anybody had issues with their 95s and scopes?

=I have been using a Daisy 880 with a custom dovetail to a larger rail adapter to stick an actual scope on the thing. It works great but got out of alignment pretty easily if somebody rested it on the scope too hard (see what happens when you share?), and the scope made loading pellets a nightmare. The scope only had about 1.5-2 inches of rail to bite onto, so I'm not surprised about the sensitivity.

Purpose: plinking & pests
