    Default Extended bench shooting sessions...

    Been playing around with the S400ERB set at the highest power level.
    Only gives me about 30 consistent shots...so I hooked up the scuba cylinder under the table, connected the fill nozzle to the rifle and opened the tap.

    Now I have 12L of air at 180 bars for thousands of consistent shots, better than a regulator.

    Finished shooting?
    Close the tap, bleed air, disconnect..rifle is full and ready for the hunt.

    Works very well with the AA filler with the thin longish hose.
    No reason why this should not work with FX2000 and other Webley variants, S200, EV2 etc.

    That will only work if the pressure in the tank is less than 200bar. Anymore and you risk damaging the rifle or yourself!!

    oh...are you talking about the new style filler with the filter?
    I thought about it before doing it and following my logic I would think that the pressure is exerted in both directions towards both o-rings.

    The old style filler though could pop directly off if the locking ring was not engaged properly.

    i was told by another birdy that there is new new style filler (new style + some sort of locking mech.)

    i think with the new style filler, it's advisable to hold it in place when opening the valve. once the o-rings seals the system, the pressure should hold it in place as guido suggested..........

    Urabus I think hold it in place till you are finished.Mine seems to creep off even though I held it in place to start with.Now I hold it all the way and it does not give me problems.

    Mine has jumped off a few times when it was pushed in properly.
    The trick I think is to keep everything dead still while you're filling it. The movement causes the adapter to slip off.
