Re: Best Railgun/Pipe gun handle

Re: Best Railgun/Pipe gun handle

I guess I’m just trying to decide if I should keep this new little B28 powered way down and strictly use it as a close range hole gun to prevent wear problems, or power it up, rig it with a double...

Re: Best Railgun/Pipe gun handle

So trying to sort through all this, it appears that there are major advantages and also major disadvantages to these new reverse trigger mechanism handles. As I see it, generally, the advantages are...

Re: Best Railgun/Pipe gun handle

Re: Best Railgun/Pipe gun handle

I wasn’t aware of the galling problem until recently. I always thought American mechanisms like Riffe, Neptonics, etc., were stainless on stainless, but apparently not?

Very cool video, as always!:thumps:

Re: 14 mil bands that are "softer"

I’ve used 9/16” tubing from a number of sources on my small guns and I know exactly what you mean. Some of the stuff I’ve gotten ahold of feels harder to pull and shoots harsher that some 5/8”...

Re: 17.5mm rubber?

Got back from the coast last night. Got a chance to do a quick shore dive and chase a few fish with the RA70. I tried out the 17.5 primeline rubber. Itís cut to 230% loaded to the first notch, and...

Re: 17.5mm rubber?

Thatís a very good point! Right now everything I have is Primeline rubber, but Iíve had a few batches in the past that varied a lot. I think Iíll just start at 22Ē and trim it down from there. ...

Re: 17.5mm rubber?

It is indeed good stuff! So, silly question, but as to cutting 17.5 to length. Iím thinking I would just go halfway between what I would cut 16mm to and what I would cut 19mm to? As an example, on...

Re: Advice for a new 70cm gun.

Re: Advice for a new 70cm gun.

Yeah good guns, but not for me. Dive with a buddy and tried his out, but just didnít care for it.

One big advantage to the RAís is that spare shafts are easy to get and fairly inexpensive. I...

17.5mm rubber?

The gun I find the most useful here in NorCal is my little Rob Allen 70. On a gun that small Iím a fan of just a single band. With a 7mm shaft, a 19mm band cut to 23 inches gives the most accuracy....

Re: Spectra wishbones for small ID bands?

That’s actually pretty much how I’ve made the bands for my Riffe guns, but using much thicker line and dipping the knots in 5 minute epoxy. I tried the same technique awhile back...
