RWS Model 40
« on: September 19, 2006, 07:55:45 AM »
I have been working at refining my Model 40 from the harsh recoiling, Muzzle heavy creature that left Germany.
 I think I've done it!
 First I removed the all steel Barrel weight, and regained the rifles center of gravity. I then replaced the stock recoil pad with an "Old" aftermarket soft red rubber unit made by Field and Trail (of Japan)
 I tried to replace a loose trigger spring and ended up loosing it somewhere in Mother's Kitchen as it flew out...
 I sent the rifle out to have both the trigger spring replaced and the dissambled trigger unit  put back together, but while doing so, I had a so-called "weak", (tested only and removed) JM GSI mainspring installed while it wsa down.
 I added a BSA A/O Variable 3X12 Aitgun Scope atop Accushot 2 piece rings (they have an internal threaded scope stop pin)
 The result is a 50+ yard asprin buster!
 I don't own a chrony, but it shoots Crosman Premier 7.9's much faster and hits harder than my "stock" Beeman R-11! I'm estimating a solid 1Kfps...

  I like this Forums  foremat, the people on the Forum, and personally don't care much about Politics, just the love of airgunning! I luckilly was away when what sems to be "unplesantrys" took place thank God!
 I hope this place does well and we can all concentrate on airguns!
