Post Rapid carbine
Heya chaps........remember me? :lol:

Recently bought a Rapid in 5mm and in stock form this was a fishing rod. The 500cc bottle and 600mm barrel made it very front heavy.
Shortened the barrel to 400mm
Fitted a regulator and 400cc bottle.
Polished up all the important bits.
Removed the inner spring from the factory double hammer spring setup
Machined and fitted new baffles to vortex silencer as this unit is useless in stock form.

Now I'm left with a sweet carbine running at 900fps with 13.7gr jsb's for 60 shots per fill.
Overall length is 1m including silencer.

Watch the hunting section for some field tests.

Yep. Rapids is the Lego of airguns. They shoot very good out of the box, but come into their own when "played" with.

Cheers
