Can,t do pics mate , since Picasa went tits up. I,ll have to try and work out how to put pics onto Postimage. The barrel arrived a couple of hours back and it,s now sitting on the Bitza . Looks cool too now i have blacked it using Tetragun bluing fluid, the best around IMO.
Initally the groups were not too good , getting the occasional flyer. But i,ve reworked the lead in at the breech and the last test put eight pellets into a .22 size hole at 21 yards. Hope it stays like that.  ::)

Bummer!!

Never tried Tetragun blue..........the best I've used is Blue Wonder.

I,ve been playing around some more with the Bitza. I opened up the tp from 1.9mm to 2.2mm and the power went up straight away. It still would not take filling above 120 bar and i lost around 8 useable shots. So, this morning i fitted the other spare Kozak cylinder c/w reg. Last week i set the reg to around 100bar so i figured with the larger tp everything should work ok. And, i,m glad to say, it does. I,ve set the power to 10.5 fpe which is plenty for ratting ( or anything else  ).  Now i won,t have to worry about running out of air . Mind you, with the way things are with my ratting perms i won,t have to worry about that anyway as there are few rats about. I went to the waterfowl farm last night and there was nothing about. I only got six .
