Howzit guys. Im new to the forum and also my first thread. Ive searched on increasing power on a Gamo shadow 640 or actually increasing power on any 500-650 fps spring rifles.
So I got a Shadow 640 the other day and I love to do my own thing shooting 40m to 50m sometimes play around and try further distance with my 2 power rifles.
I like to try new DIY stuff and I am an qualified artisan so I do have my basics in mechanics and all sorts but I was maybe thinking instead of selling the 640 which is still like new only fired 10 pellets... I want to try and get this 640 to around 900-1000fps just as a way to keep me busy and out of trouble.
My father in law use to know Vince very well and use to get his rifles done by him and I know everyone recommends gas ram. And I honestly do agree that gas ram is really nice but I want to keep it spring only.
I was wondering if I actually add in a little piece of spring ( which is actually a backyard idea ) would it actually work?? Not add in to try and push limits but add in just to reach that slight jump in power.. or....... even buy a new Gamo Shadow 1000 spring and replace it with the current spring? Will the fit be right regarding size ? Ive tried to search it aswell but got no info on that.
This might have been asked before and please accept my apology in advance if there has been a similiar thread. And Sorry if its a dumb question I am just really interested to know if either of those will actually work and what Is needed.
Thanks guys. Hope you guys can give me some advise on those ideas.
