Hi lads. There is a air ranger at mcavoy guns in Wigan lancs .22 fac which I like the problem is it's only at 18fpe.
The gun shop selling it says it can be put up to 30plus foot pound for £50.
A rang daystate and the computer was down so they can't cross reference serial number but they said it would cost £250 if they were doing it. Am I missing something lads. ?

Audi-swift would be best to answer this, but I would think £50 sounds too cheap, as I would think some upgraded parts are needed (hammer spring, transfer port?).

But I would think £250 is milking it a bit.

Happy to be wrong.

Daystate website, Air Ranger 5443 was made 15/11/2012 and is recorded as 60 ftlbs.

Fill pressure 230 bar

so £50 is ok for adjustment.

Ah really well that's not to bad. When I spoke to daystate they said they can be adjusted if a only want say ten fpe that's not to expensive. But say make a 20 fpe rifle up to 50 fpe things need changed inside.
And vice versa. The gun shop said they can do it in-house by one of there gunsmiths.
You guys have plenty of good information so thank you.

If you are serious about buying it I know of a local Daystate expert in the Wigan area who has the tools and experience to perform the required work. I would hope that it is fitted with the slingshot hammer because it is far better to shoot than the earlier knock open valve type. The slingshot is limited in what it is capable of and tops out at around 30ftlb.
If I have an opinion it is because I have researched it or due to life experience. It might not be the same as yours but have you done the above?

A don't think it will have that slingshot valve fitted because it left daystate as a 60 foot pound rifle.
Am just struggling to see the point of purchasing a gum at 60 fpe to get it turned down to 18 fpe.
When a was pondering the idea of a .25 at 60 fpe daystate told me that it could be adjusted with in range of were it was set at not big money but it would cost a lot to re-tune a 60 fpe weapon to 20 fpe.
They explained the insides needed modified to make such a conversion. And the same for making a lower powered fac very powerful eg 20 fpe up to 60 fpe
Am getting confused.

That would make it originally a .25 which is even more confusing. Can you confirm that it is a .22 because it can easily re tuned with a bit of work. Drop me a pm with contact number and I will talk you through it.

It's possible it was. 22 at 60ftlb, it would be limited to 1 maybe two pellets though, I believe the. 22 is available up to 60 and the. 25 up to 80ftlb. someone probably saw sense and turned it down, why down to 18? That's a mystery! Do you know if it's consistent at 18? It may have a problem that's causing low power output.
