Guys, I need some help here.
Being new to the whole PCP thing, I reckon you'll help a lot in the future as well.
I received my long awaited Hatsan AT44 yesterday, unpacked everything, assembled everything etc.
Logically, I started trying out different brands of pellets to see which ones she likes most, and found some interesting results as one can only imagine. Group sizes were quite acceptable though, as this rifle will not really be used for any target work, more for PC.
I would like to know if anyone can tell me if the AT44 has a power adjustment screw, if so, where is it located etc. If not, how do I go along adjusting the muzzle velocity? I read about guys adjusting the MV by setting the force of the hammer spring, how is this all done, where to start, how much to adjust at a time etc.
I really need all the advice and tips I can get, as I'm really new to all this.
My main reason for wanting to adjust the MV, is the muzzle crack, the rifle is fine accuracy wise, but delivers one HELL of a bark. Sounds identical to .22LR.
Funny enough, with this (I assume) very high MV, the rifle is still grouping fairly well, and gives me about 50 shots from 190 - 110 bar. Penetrates a 38mm SA Pine like butter.
I thought that if were to lower the MV somewhat, the muzzle crack would be less, and I will also get more shots per fill, not that I'm unhappy with current state of things.
I guess the other alternative is to leave everything as is, and fit a silencer.
Please bear in mind that I don't have access to a chronograph.
Any advice is very welcome.
