    Hi Nigel,
    Any chance you can list some websites or ebay sellers who sell parts for Air rifles including faster velocity springs. In particular the HW97?

      Not sure about faster springs for the hw97. Most of us are actually tuning for accuracy and not speed. The most likely scenario if you couldn't get one would be for Matt to turn you a top hat and extra washers for the front of the piston spring. My tuned hw is running at about 16 fpe with FTT pellets and that's about 1.5 higher than before the tune. Top hat and 1 washer added.

      Sure
      I'll edit some in there.
      Off the top of my head
      kits are available from V-mach, Macarri, Vortek to name a few or see our very own Matt for a local product.
      Spares can be had from Chambers.

    I've added a few suppliers to the list.

    If you've got someone else that has been particularly good, post a link and I'll edit into the main index.

    Does anyone know what is happening with Target Tune India? I ordered some parts from them 3 months ago. They took my money but I didn't get the parts. Now their web site says they are not taking orders until further notice.

      I did too mate.
      Get in touch with them and they will refund you. It takes a little while through PayPal but they will do it.
      The story they gave me was that one of their main employees was undergoing chemotherapy.
      I'll reorder later.
      I did find another guy on ebay in the UK doing pistons that seemed like good quality - just more exy and you had to do a changeover.

      This video just says so much about the importance of tuning Air-Rifles for accuracy in lieu of excessive power

        I found these links useful when modding my Daystate magazine. Also shows the difference between the new and old designs.

          There's a post above I've made visible re TTI.
          Start a new thread if you want to ask a question.

          Just dropped a few of those links into the front page.
          I think the Youtube vids can remain in their own post.
