hi there. not really after advice as for now im sorted but just thought i would post this.
i have been given an air rifle by our neighbour. it has travelled from england to south africa to canada and back here in its life time so i expected it to have a few knocks but couldnt get the scope i put on it adjusted enough to get within a foot of the target which is only 50 foot away. so i tried a differant scope and this was the same. i have ended putting shims of aluminium can and foil turkey roasting tray under the scope tube on the front mount and its now putting 5 shots touching with no problem at all.
i cant see any play when the action is closed so it must be a bent barrel.
my daughter is now eight and this christmas we managed to get out in the garden and start her on the road to a safe and good shot.
im not that fussed about this gun as she is not yet stong enough to carry it but when she is she ca use my precharged falcon to go proper shooting.
i found by removing the butt pad it got her just close enough to comfortably reach the trigger and i have put some foam pipe insulation on the comb to help with eye alignment.
just a some lighter ramblings after the recent firearms related news
