View Full Version : Webley Raider @ 8.5 ft/lbs!

I recently bought a secondhand Webley Raider in .177 calibre. I was happy with it until I chronographed it on Monday night. Using AA Field in 4.52mm, I was getting readings between 675 and 683 fps. This calculates out at a most unimpressive 8.5 ft/lbs (ish) !

Would one of you technical chaps send me a PM with some instruction on how to increase the power to 11-11.5 ft/lbs?

I'd be really grateful as it's no good for HFT as it is.

Thanks in advance.

CHECK THAT THE BARREL GRUB SCREWS ARE NOT LOOSE AND THE BARREL HAS NOT MOVED THIS CAN HAPPEN AND WHEN IT DOES THE TRANSFER PORT DOES NOT LINE UP WITH THE BARREL

Closet - having seen you snipe, may I suggest that you actually need to DE-regulate your power somewhat to avoid unnecessary bouts of swearing and moodiness?
I suggest plugging tin cans (remember them?) on Bluey, with no more than 6 ft/lbs (or maybe a 12ft/lbs twanger) to restore order to your chaos.

On the other hand, you could always storm TS, and demand a deserved tweak?
