I'm looking for a 'short' (carbine-length) air cylinder for an HW100.
Thing is, I want to keep the original full-length tube and original barrel in reserve, as I suspect I might be reverting at some point.
That eliminates the possibility of a swap-with-cash-difference scenario.
Component Status Quo so far:
- I have a .177 AirForce Lothar Walther barrel I can cut down, so that end of things is sorted.
- If no one has a decent second-hand tube, I can probably have one made.
- I'll also be making my own custom stock for this project.
You should be able to use the standard stock with a carbine cylinder.... can still reach the fill port.
It is not financially viable to make your own tube. Remember.... it's essentially an explosive device. Surely your life is worth more than the cost of a proper cylinder?
Barrel should be good. cut to 310mm
Buy a compact Tula slip-on silencer if the barrel is not threaded. Don't thread a barrel if you can avoid it. Vincent (excellent tech person) and Dallas (excellent shooter) proved that accuracy is affected by threading, AFAICR.
You have what you need. Spend the money on the cylinder.
Mine, with a Weihroach silencer.... FAR MORE compact with a Tula.
PS... you can see the tiny Tula on my Pulsar...
I plan on solving this problem by building my own custom stock.
