Revisiting the Diana 52 Carbine

Event though I had the D52 shooting quite nice, i knew it could be better…with the Walther LGV piston being such a universal base for conversions I decided to see if it could get it to fit in the D52 and by making up a new longer piston rod reduce the stroke…and of course sleeve […]

Final update for the .22 AGT80

Refitted 16inch HW90 barrel (same as 16inch HW80 barrel although the bare 90 barrel is slightly lighter weight) Added 280Gram barrel shroud (finishes flush with the end of the barrel) its just to add weight Originally the short stroke using the LGV piston […]

HW80 LGV Piston Hybrid, news for .22 conversions (AGT80)

When I converted the .177 80 to LGV piston I also completed a .22 conversion at the same time, till now its been somewhat hold sensitive, to the point I thought the barrel was faulty…tried 3 barrels and all had the same issue…so looked deeper. The .177 conversion is much quicker than the .22, if […]

TX200 short stroke with Walther LGV piston

TX200 Mk3 with Walther LGV piston…Bring on the short stroke drop in. We had a long thread about short stroking the TX200 Mk3, the -14mm of the mk1 piston makes the TX quite nice but it requires a new rod or piston cap to reduce the stroke on a mk3 piston as mk1 pistons are […]

The 80/LGV is still a work in progress but wanted to talk a little of transfer port tuning.

When I decided to pass over the new LGV 2012 for a while and have a go at building my own part of the criteria was that I would design the gun based around known values, swept volume and static pressure etc. Now over the summer I have tinkered with 2x HW35’s and a HW55, […]
