I haven't posted on here again since 2012 I think, when I had my Gamo Whisper CFR adapted to Nitro piston and "trigger-jobbed" by MZE (Vincent).
Myself and my brother are looking at getting started with basic PCP setups and I have a couple of questions that some might be able to answer for us.
We stay in the Strand which is about 50km from Cape Town, so some questions might be related to where we can have certain things done in our area.
We have decided on 5.5mm Kral Puncher Breaker Bullpup rifles (280cc) as our first rifles. We like the compactness of it, decent pricing and acceptable accuracy.
We mainly did plinking and target shooting in the past at 25m - 30m, so that will hopefully be upped a bit on distance.
A single air cylinder and filling station will be shared as a starting point, and we are looking at 6L to 10L 300bar steel and stainless filling station fittings in that respect.
Locally in our area (Helderberg) it seems they only refill 200bar tanks.
Some questions I have for the Cape Town guys and the forum :
1. Where do you have your tanks refilled / tested in CPT? (300bar)
2. Where would be a good place to look for decent 2nd-hand tanks / refill stations (I have Blades & Triggers as an option already)
3. Is my decision of a 300bar tank for a 200bar rifle a good idea instead of 200bar?
4. What would be a decent silencer for a 1/2" UNF male-threaded rifle if I don't get a Kral silencer? (I've read about the Air Arms Q-Tec being pretty good)
Thanks for any and all comments!
