Are they as grumpy to you as they are to me?

I honestly can't understand them.

Still probably the best cylinders in the uk. Shame no one I can find fills under water to keep tanks cool.

Jc scuba in Swindon seem fair on their testing but not the cheapest on the refills.
They test bottles onsite and have a quick turn around

I asked how much it would be for a re-fill when I collected my 10l tank from Hydroactive in Letchworth after it was tested this week.... £3 :thumbup: The tank was a visual inspection test this time.....£35. Tanks are sent on Thursdays, back the following Thursday.

Bought a load of .177 & .22 pellets and a couple of AirArms SL510 mags in Sundon Model shop on the outskirts of Luton last Monday... proudly showed me his compressor..... £6. (Don't think so... Letchworth is a lot closer to me )

Cheers

PCP's are a pain. They leak, they don't regulate properly (usually), they are not cheap and if you have a 300 litre bottle you will be lucky if you get 280 litres at a hot refill. I bet none of you has a gauge to check what your given (no I don't either). Trusting lot aren't we! Your filler dealer chap probably uses an Italian compressor that will break down periodically and he can't get the spares for it and does not keep any in stock cos he doesn't know how to fix it anyway. My chap has the mechanical sympathy of a refuse technician but I do trust them to empty the bins - see what I mean. If you are fac then you are best off with PCP otherwise my next 12fp will be a springer in .177. Eight quid now for a refill by the way to pay for the ailing foreign compressor. On the plus side the chap at Stafford Custom Rifles is a good man who can repair/service your Daystate regulator for a decent price and knows his stuff. He gets my vote of confidence. However this does not help when one runs out of air - my wife wishes. How many airgun dealer boys do you know that can fill your tank - well? Your pcp is like me, fast becoming a dinosaur that no one wants to feed.

My thoughts exactly. I have owned Daystate, Air Arms and Loguns with varying sizes of cylinders and buddy bottles. All of them I have filled myself using my own steam. Never had an issue and shot countless tins and tins and tins of pellets through them all. I could never be arsed battying around with bottles and gauges and servicing. Pumps are really good nowadays, much better than when I first started shooting PCP's yrs back.

This is the funniest thing I have read in ages. Assume you are looking for a reaction as any experienced air rifle shooter knows that PCP's are by far away more accurate, more reliable and more efficient at dispatching quarry out to distances that exceed the safe operating limit of a springer by 20yrds. Springers are good fun in the back garden but I would not trust one to serve my rabbit needs at the range I shoot.

As for the charging stuff. Each to their own but just buy a pump. They are so well made nowadays that I don't even get out of breath pumping mine up. Mind you, even if I did, it would be good for me. PCP's revolutionised my shooting some 15yrs back and I would never go backwards. I want the best thing that ensures I can hit a drawing pin at the furthest yardage possible. In that respect, you will not beat a .177 PCP in benign conditions. When the wind blows, I stop home or grab the rimfire. You should use the best tool for the job
