AN ARCHIVE OF MY CURRENT AIRGUNS, AND OTHER WEAPONS OWN- ALL SAFE, LEGAL, WHOLESOME FUN ITEMS, YOU UNDERSTAND...
LAST UPDATED: 07/APRIL/2017

IN ORDER TO SAVE SPACE, I'M JUST DETAILING MY CURRENT GUNS, BUT WILL ADD A BIT MORE DETAIL AS TO THEIR ORIGINS AND PERFORMANCE ETC.



VICTORY PP700W

On one of my many journeys down the tubes of the interwebs I began looking into new airguns that have arrived on the market recently, since I was considering my beloved series 500+. After a while by chance I stumbled upon a fairly new PCP pistol and was immediately smitten, especially after I saw the incredibly low price compared to comparable options. Several hours ( days... ) passed and I had absorbed as much info as I could regarding the performance and reliability of the pistol, and its huge potential for modification, so I decided to buy one for myself, using one of the very few retailers in the UK whom can deliver direct to your door by using their own vans and drivers, thus by-passing the infuriating VCRA that normally prevents mail order purchases of airguns.

Upon receiving the pistol and having a bit of a play with it, finish quality seems very good for the 160 pounds price tag, trigger is very nice once adjusted to be quite light ( YMMV ), loading is quite unique and very simple, and the hammer cocking is just like my HW75 so very familiar, though the shape of the hammer where your thumb engages isn't quite as grippy- be sure not to let the hammer slip as you cock it. The pistol is very adjustable, you can tune the Transfer port, Hammer spring tension, Regulator and Trigger for 1st stage and Sear engagement. The main downsides seem to be lack of open sights ( you can fabricobble something if you wish, or use a scope or red dot sight ), loud muzzle report ( custom silencer adaptors are available ), and disappointing grip; I plan to make a custom wooden grip soon, and already have a custom silencer adaptor fitted- it's not the most elegant set up ever, but it does work well. I also fitted a small 1-4x25 scope which suits the pistol quite well- a more typical rifle scope is just too large, and normal pistol scopes with long eye relief are expensive. I have big plans for this pistol, stay tuned for more photos.

SNOW WOLF AIRSOFT M41A PULSE RIFLE

If you followed my Pulse Rifle Project, you'll already know about process I went through to create this personal friend of mine, if not, then let me introduce you; the M41a Pulse Rifle- an airsoft replica of very high quality from the brand 'SnowWolf'. Comes with a working ammo counter, high-capacity magazine, sliding pump action grenade launcher grip, and has select fire ( semi auto, full auto and separate safety switch ). I don't intend to skirmish with this item since it's mainly for display and possibly cosplay purposes, hence the custom paintjob and modified magazines with attached mag-bases. I added it an entry to the armoury however since... it's a Pulse Rifle... ;)

WINDLASS STEEL TWO HANDED SCOTTISH SWORD

Two Handed Scottish Sword

Home Made DIY Sword Display Stand

Made from Saple Offcuts

Finished with three coats of Danish Oil

I've wanted a sword for a long time, always hankering after a replica of The Kurgan Sword from the Highlander movie. Trouble is, most replicas are cheap stainless steel, and any 'real' versions are prohibitively expensive. After a while I changed my mind and started wanting a replica of the William Wallace sword, but the same issues as before cropped up, along with there being several different versions with different details and fittings. At that point I started looking at a wider selection of sword retailers and found the awesome looking 2 handed Scottish sword, made by Windlass Steel Swords- details about the quality of steel are sketchy, but based on reviews of that and their other swords they seem to be decent quality for the price.

WEIHRAUCH HW75

It's a big and beautiful pistol, very accurate ( more so than I am ) and very reliable. There are set of grooves on the barrel shroud, and I fully intend to get a pistol scope for it in the not too distant future. I especially like the fact that you have to cock the hammer after priming the action, kinda like an old six shooter, only, not.

What can I say... this had to be one of the most impressive airrifles ever made at the time. It looks stunning; that synthetic green stock has been designed by the best in the business, none other than Gary Cane. The action is a piece of precision engineering, and the bluing is fantastic. The Ultimate silencer isn't all that amazing, but I guess you need to be about 40 yards down range to tell if its working or not. I spent a little time zeroing it the other day, and put in more than a few one hole groups, so accuracy isn't up for debate. My only gripe is firstly the price; 839 quid, and secondly the weight, although its meant to weigh only 5-6 lbs, it feels heavier because all the metal work is towards the very front, which tips the balance forward a bit. Then again, it does come with a bipod, so that's that problem sorted.

A few years back I decided to have a custom stock made as I was unhappy with the ambidextrous standard version, gave poor cheek alignment for looking through the scope. I contacted a company called GINB who made ( used to, they have ceased production as of 2016 ) a large range of beautiful custom stocks for all manner of air rifles and pistols, forwarded a crude MSPaint image of one of their stocks with some custom features and paid a deposit to begin the build. A couple months & a few email exchanges later to confirm the custom details, and they sent me the final images of the stock with its raised cheek piece & stippling panels, I was totally blown away. In all it cost 400 GBP but is worth it if you want a work of art for your beloved rifle to wear. Speaking of which, the rifle is mounted with a first generation Hawke Sidewinder 6-18x52 scope, with side-wheel parallax adjustment and mil-dot reticle, using BKL medium mounts.
