    Default Regulated Tac Drivers QB78



    Now that's what I'm talking about!!!! This is the route I'm taking. Thanks JT for the advice. Anyone an idea if one can get those regulaters locally or how difficult it is for an engineering shop to make? See below.

    Hi Nikhok,

    I believe you can buy a high quality bottle and regulator that fits on for like $100 overseas. I for the life of me cannot remember where though. But if you were to take the QB, tune the trigger(there is a tune that replaces the follow through adjustment screw with a spring loaded screw - creates a true 2stage trigger) and run regulated air through it I believe you can get a very capable cheap "pcp" rifle. I think the thing that shoots the QB's accuracy in the foot the whole time is not the rifle but rather the temperature changes of the metals when using CO2 which must influence the accuracy. Take the rifle and feed her "room temperature" regulated air and you may embarrass a few.

    btw: those are 79's not 78's in the picture.

    very true Guido, they are a bit heavy up front.. The benifit though is they are so short that the centre of gravity is still reasonable, so to speak

    that said .. I need to make a correction. the middle one is a 79 the other two are 78's with 79 bulk bottle adaptors. The 78's would be to front heavy. the 79 not so bad. They are no S200/400 but can be supprisingly easy to shoot.

    Dye Hard in Brackenfell has regulated air tanks. It's pretty big though. You will have to carry it on your belt and attach it with a remote coil which is actually very useful. Last I priced them a month odd ago the tank was R700 odd and the coil about R300. You can also get the air fill adapter to screw on the scuba for just over R1K. Then you have the complete fill setup for the regulated tank. It all screws right onto the std QB79 connector. Not sure of what needs to be done to a QB78.
