This can go on and on. The best way to do it is to cover it one piece at a time. Git’er done.
Hunting with an air gun. Some time ago I got me one of those Chicom air guns. First thing I noticed that the whip crack noise following each shot. That’s a certain indicator of those pellets going supersonic. So, I played with it fer a bit and have that .177 acting like a small game rifle.
DISCLAIMER: Here’s yer if you get hurt, I ain’t to blame warning.You are the first and last person responsible for your own damn safety. Use safety/shooters glasses and gloves at a minimum. Be a good sportsman and never shoot others pets. That’s inhumane and just low. Check yer local game laws before using it for hunting. Doing this wrong can destroy your air gun/rifle. Only use a air gun/rifle in good working condition. You been warned.
I learned this trick as a kid with a crossman pump up pistol with detachable stock. I call it dieseling the air gun. The only mod is to the ammo and not the gun. Don’t mod the air piston at all. DON”T. Mod the pellet ammo by putting a small piece of cotton in the hollow base with a small amount of glue. Miniscule even. put a drop of oil on the cotton and chamber the round. The cotton will be at the back of the round. Pump up and fire as with any other pellet. Notice the result. With my rifle, I already can put a pellet through one side of a 55 gallon drum before using the oil trick. After the trick, The pellet goes all the way through. This is the ticket for small game on a budget. Check the bore for obstructions and fouling. You will have to clean the bore periodically.
How it works. The compressed air interacts with the oil like a fire piston. The resultant combustion adds a few FPS to the shot. IF you do it right. If the gun has a report, a bang. You are using to much oil. Use small amounts always. Never oil the air piston as that will cause a catastrophic failure to occur. This trick has put many rabbits and squirrels on the table, as well as a few game birds.
This works in a variety of air rifles and pistols. Both in .177 and .22 cal. with pellet ammo only. Mileage may vary here. Not all oils give the same results. I used gun oil, corn oil, olive oil, and 3-1 oil.
