Ah!

So the specification of the hammer determines the gun's power because of the speed with which it can release the air and, in turn, the volume of air that it can release and the pressure under which it'll do it, yes?

Sort of.

The way the hammer/valve works is dependent on quite a few variables, but you've got the general gist (or should that be jist?). ;)

Strewth,
Well done Iceburger buddy.
I've been drying out a nice bit of 10.000 year old bog oak, a memento of Sea Henge.
You are welcome to it for the stock. I also have two nice lumps of black thorn, I've been drying them for twenty years if you fancy something a bit more contempary. For a blank of hedgerow to grow that big, that's old too. It died of old age.
Be different!
Only Plink one gun at a time.
I don't want the wife to find out, how many pop guns are under my bed in my room! Only room in the house that's safe from inspection really!!

Been working in the mancave, up to my eyes in alloy swarf. Its coming along nicely. Next job is to make the trigger group and then its all systems go for testing. It should work  ::) Then its a case of making a stock , I hate that bit. I still don,t know what it will be, some kind of carbine I guess. Anyway, here,s what i,ve done so far.

I can't wait to see what it looks like when the stock is attached.

Great stuff, Baggy!

Well i,ve got it working. It sure is nerve racking charging a gun for the first time. " Have I forgotten anything, is that thread strong enough, will it leak. " But hey, i,ve been doing it long enough so I think I know what i,m doing by now  ::) The first thing to happen was the breech seal holder blowing out. I guess loctite isn,t strong enough. Then the power was too low ( 3.5 fpe ). Bollocks. So back to the drawing board. Open up the ports and secure the breech seal and try again. 8.3fpe. That ,ll do it. I don,t think I can get much more because of the limited space available. Should be good enough for a plinker or real close range ratter. Now I have to work out how to make a stock to fit it.
