Another cheap pcp
« on: February 07, 2017, 11:49:20 AM »
As you know, I built a couple of pcp,s using SMK rifles a while back. Well, I picked up another SMK for 40 the other day, this time in .177. So, it,s being turned into a pcp like the others. I,m just waiting for a drop block and bottle to arrive then its all systems go. I,ve already done a load of mods, including an anti bounce device which may or may not work . We,ll see. This time i,ll take some photos to give you an idea as to how its done. Cost? 79. Not bad eh? Watch this space.

Great.

Is it based on the QB78/9 Mel?

Yep, a QB79. Mine started life as a QB78 so i,ve had to cut down the tube and re-drill it for the drop block. I also swapped the the stock for the correct item. Yesterday I bought another , new , QB79 for 60 just in case. You never know, I might build another. But, the drop block internals don,t look too good so I might have to order another block. I,ve just received notification that my bottle has arrived so i,m off to pick it up from Argos. ( click and collect ).

You bunch of sluts are SO impatient. I had a few niggles with it at first - it kept dumping all its air. But a phone call to my mate Dave Welham sorted that problem - too much hammer spring. After trying various tp,s it settled at 12fpe. So, i,ve shortened the barrel by four inches and now it runs at a steady 10.8. Good enough.
