    The HW100 has a very good self regulating valve system which works at around 90bar.....it is not a regulator in the true sense.

    AA silencer is about R 500 - 600. Am I correct in saying that it's about R 250 for the Woodchuck ?

    Ice's S400 Classic used to give me about 80 very consistent shots when filled to about 180bar.
    Ice did you adjust the power on the S400 ? Used to do 800 fps with AA fields...
    Change it back to 800 and you'll get atleast 80 shots.

    Thanks Neil.

    I feel bad because at the moment I am reading as much as I can, but you guys have obviously been in the game for much longer than I.

    So here goes the next question...I assume that Woodchuck is a supplier, so how can I get in contact with this person. It is deficult to practice only while planes fly over in order to disguise the noise. And believe me I need lots of practice.

    This group has become my daily hangout, I appreciate the help

    80 shots??? I wish! They told me 80 shots at TS but maybe I?m doing something wrong. The manual said do not fire below the recommended bar pressure which is about 110 bar..(max fill is 200 bar) So I didn't and to this day I can't get more than 50 shots out, max! Although it's identical amounts of shots per fill, 50 is the max.

    Wolf, I hear you...seems we have something in common with our local airport, sound dampering ,lol
    I do the same but it takes hours to empty 1 fill.
    We need a closer location to practise.

    Well, how is this. I live in the Germiston area and travel to Sandton every day. So my range is any were between here and there. Why not get together and I am glad to hook up and take a few hours of practice.

    After all if there is two or three at a mine dump it is better than me and my dog as far as security is concerned.

    Let me know, I am free for the next few months

    Cool, but I am a crash test dummy by proffesion, not the sharpest tool in the shed.

    If you can mail me a map and confirm a time to meet you over the next day or two I would really appreciate it.

    I think there is a little mail envolope under this post, alternatively drop me a line lee.ridley@za.syspro.com and we can make arrangements. Any one else?

    Hi Neil, the S400's shot count was used for comparision only, i still need to know how it's possible for the hw100 to do more with less air???

    or what ????

    Use crony to determine power curve ie min usable pressure, i'll agree with - never overfill, but min usable pressure is dependant on power setting (hammer, valve relation), application and only you can determine that.

    The valve will only do it's work to about 50bar after that you'll hear the remaining air being dumped as the pressure is to low to keep the valve shut. This also prevent a pellet to get stuck in the barrel as a result of low pressure.

    Nothing wrong with 50 shots, but i believe you can still get a few more decent shots per fill

    Cheers

    Which mine dump near snake road? Not that one they are regurgitating eh? - that's the bugger I fell off of. :<

    Will we be okay shooting on Mine Dumps? Don't want the police pitching up and confiscating my rifle. Ooooer.

    WolfFlow:

    I think the Woodchuck guy is just the manufacturer, so you will have to buy from a shop. Try your local or give TS in Boksburg a ring. They selling like hotcakes from what I gathered on Friday.
