    Default The .20 project

    Here's the new thread om my planned .20 conversion. I will have the LW barrel soon, so right now I'm doing research. I've pretty much made my mind up that it will be the Diana 350. Found a similar conversion on the web. This one is a 13" barrel. Still havent got any info on whether it is pressed in, screwed in, chemically welded etc, but it looks like a barrel swap is possible.

    Yes, rifle on the left is after the barrel is fitted and the one on the right is job finished. Barrel blued and scope on.

    VAn as jy daai loop opgesit het Pm my, ek het 4 blikkies(-11pellets) H&N Baracuda wat jy teen halfprys kan oorneem as hulle akkuraat skiet in jou setup. My Airvolution .20 wil net JSB .20 he. Sy is meer vol akkies as my vrou.... Het ook n blik Crow MAg in .20 (-11pellets) H&N pellets presteer glo goed in die LW lope as ek so na die U.S forums kyk.

    Se my as ek vir jou moet samples pos. Hulle beteken nie veel vir my nie.

    MMP, To my knowledge nil. I do have a AA S200 in .20 the convention cost me R1200. R800 for the barrel and R400 for the turning and can be changed back to .177 in 5min.

    Can I then assume that no new rifles are available off the shelf in .20 calibre at the present moment?

    There must be. What about a HW97K, or the South African made 5.0mm. I'm also sure there might be some .20 guns on sale at Shooting and Stuff. I've bought my .20 Anxor from them. And it was only R6000.00.

    All the Theoben PCP's are available in .20 locally, and so are the Airvolutions in .20.
