    I'm following this thread with interest and hopefully the gun will be sweet when finished.
    I'll then pass it on to Emma's boyfriend, George, who will then have a gun of his own to enjoy the hobby with.
    Hopefully, he will then be as hooked as Emma and me.
    Hi gtfreight, have a look at my last post and make sure you split the cocking link when reassembling it so you donít do what I did

    Let us know how you get on, Iíll be interested to see if itís lubed when you first strip it !

    Iíll put 50p and two chocolate HobNobs that itís not

    I'd guess that there's different "best" seal resistance for different types of seals and guns. Some seals have thin sealing lips that expand when pessurized, this probably causes a lot of friction that you cant detect with the sliding test.
    I prefer to try different seals from different makers before sizing.
    You can often find one that fits and does what you want without removing any material if you have several to choose from.
    But that big box of seals costs a bit of money.....
    Hi Evert,
    Sorry but due to the issues I had with the piston sleeve / spring and time constraints, I didnít really have time to start fabricating a resistance checking device but if it gets stripped again I definitely will

    Re: seal resistance.
    That would make fascinating readings. I suspect that optimal seal resistance will also be influenced by the power being generated by the spring and also, of course, by any lubrication on the seal that influences its resistance against the cylinder wall.
    Cheers, Phil

    Seal resistance experiments is interesting, but as stated earlier, there are some variables that are difficult to measure, like friction under pressure, and how different seal materials react to pressure.

    And powerful guns with heavy springs are less sensitive to seal resistance.
    Too many airguns!

    Thanks for the advice Norm. It's going to be a while before I open it up but I'll buy some Hobnobs before I do (any excuse for a Hobnob).

    It might be worth just taking the stock off and seeing if thereís any sign of lubrication, I certainly wouldnít have shot mine had I known it was dry !

    Hi Norm,

    I have just got it out of the bag for the first time and cocked it, it sounded dry when being cocked so I pulled the stock off (the front trigger screw was in solid), and you are right, it's as dry as a nun's chuff. I'm not even going to chrono it until next week when I'm off work and can spend some time on it.
    Here's a picture, the guide is still white.

    I just canít understand why they do that, itís crazy I wonder how long theyíd last in the hands of someone who didnít know anything about greasing them ?

    Iíll let you off the hobnobs bet as I reckoned I was on to a dead cert anyway

    Itíll be interesting to see what itís doing once itís lubed up

    If itís anything like mine thereíll be a fair bit of preload on it as well. If you need any info on the strip donít hesitate to pm me, or even give me a call on PURUURIYIRO ( substitute the letters for numbers on a std qwerty keyboard ).

    I could probably strip mine in the dark now !

    I think I'll be taking you up on the advice if you don't mind.

    I'm the opposite to you as I normally get up at 1.15am but it might take me 8 hours to strip it down.

    I couldnít resist it, my Venoman setback trigger for the Remy arrived today, and very nice it is too, also very clear fitting instructions with pictures
    I know what tomorrowís workshop job is

    I've decided to make a start on mine this morning but I've fallen at the first hurdle. I have tried to call you Norm but I must have decoded your number wrong.
    I'm trying to remove the trigger block to get to the spring and I can't fathom home to remove the safety mechanism before I take out the 2 pins. If anyone can give me a pointer it would be greatly appreciated.
    I've tried to find Jon's guide but can't.
