right i bought an s400 about a month ago,NEW might i add and anti tamper,i have just been down the field target club for a zero session,so i filled it up to 180 bar and put 5 pellets through it on the chrono and they were all coming out at 11.52 ft lbs with AA fields (4.52) i went on to shoot a fifty shot string and then put it on the chrono again,the gauge read about 145 bar so i put another 5 shots through this time with the AA fields came out at 12.52 ft lbs and then another 5 shots through with falcon precision 7.33 grain coming out at 13.1 ft lbs.
basically has anyone got any ideas about this...
im a lawbreaker
Take it back, simples
I have often wondered about this situation… what if the gun shop confiscated your rifle for it being over powered when you took it back?
Good deals: bbs members: ELMOR FUDD, daz hale,
bigjob, MAD MARK, jack-attack, johnbaz, u.k.neil, jonr140, MishKING, DM80, oldskoolzzz, catman and lots more
Wonderful concept this anti-tamper idea, don't you think?
As smudger said, take it back, it's the dealers's problem.
The ox is slow, but the earth is patient.
If he's not licensed for Section 1 firearms it might be a bigger problem.
Take it back sharpish,and if the dealer talks of confiscation,remind him they sold you an illegal weapon,from a manufacturer who have removed all methods of you keeping the rifle legal.
Just hope you don't get stopped on your way to the shop,as it will be you that carries the can.Great,isn't it.
should i take it back and get my money back,not sure if i want to deal with this shop again,i know its not really there fault but when your selling guns all precautions should be taken.
You can't really blame the shop, how many would chrono a full string before selling you a gun?
This is why I refuse to buy new rifles and will always buy second-hand older guns where I know I can fulfil my legal obligations.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing
Don't worry too much.
The worst they can do to you is 6 months inside and a £5000 fine.
Oh! and costs, destruction of your rifle and a Criminal Record.
Mind they have to catch you first
Are you a law breaker? In my eyes I don't see how you can be. You bought the gun in good faith and it has crept up through no fault of your own and you can't turn the power down because of the wonderful laws in this country. Of course if you get caught the law won't see it like that. Best to take it straight back to where you got it and ask for a replacement,and if they try and confiscate it tell them that it has AT and it isn't your fault.
