Air Gun info

#1
Not sure if this is the right forum, anyway:

I've been given an Air Rifle it's an Original Mod 35 .177 calibre.

I've only fired a couple of pellets through it, what I'd like to know is if anyone can hazard a guess as to how powerful it is, at 16 feet (approx) when fired at an empty Coke can the pellet goes right through both sides without moving it, I thought I'd missed as the can didn't move.

Honestly its too risky to gamble mate, though I've heard its between 8-9ft/lb

I'd advise getting a chronograph to measure it, I bought one for £35 and it works great

Thanks, I think the legal limit is under 12 ft/lb. I think you're right I need to chrono it to check. I'd hoped that "going through a Coke can without moving it" would get the answer "no problem, squire well under 12ft/lb" :D

It's very unlikely to be over 12 ft lbs. Probably nearer 8-10 so no certificate required.

Take it your local gunsmith or dealer and ask him to check it for you.

No idea of what spring it has, haven't stripped it down yet. It's a break barrel and I would guess at least 10 yrs old although not used much.

Any idea of the make ? Diana ?

Not sure what to do with it I can't really use it much in the garden, and I'm not sure yet if there is a club near me. Will look into it. I wonder if it's worth throwing money at Telescopic sights, etc etc or if I get into it buy a new (Co2 ? ) one.

Anyone near Scunthorpe that goes/uses an air rifle ?

On the subject of air rifles, how quiet are CO2 ? my air rifle apparently is 85Dbs (BSA Lightning XL)
I do not know how quiet CO2 is, but my falcon FN 12 precharged pneumatic is bloody loud for an airgun, but the Logan silencer does a good job of quietening it down a bit.
