Does anybody knows how to make a career 707 more powerfull?
I thougt of making the transfer port bigger but don't want to start at it when I
am not absolutly sure.I know people have don it but can't find anything about it.Help much aprecieted.
It has all the power you could possibly use.
Why does everyone ask for more. If I gave you 2500 fps you would ask for 2600.
The Career works best with 28,5 grainers at 35-40 fpe.
If you want more power than an Airrifle shooting as hard as a short rimfire get a long rifle rimfire or magnum .22.
I get this all day long.
Get over it!
If all you care about is power the simplest way to make power is to use Helium. 65 fpe becomes 100 fpe.
I live to make airguns accurate and the power game isn't something I'll play because the two are so often mutually exclusive.
Hi I'not all about power.I just bought a bsa hornet in 12 ft/lbs because i wanted a rifle that gives accuracy, consistency and a lot of shots at the same power.
something u can't say about a standard career for the last 2. Because i thought the career was a lost case anyway i wanted to see if I could push this bad boy even further.
I m not going to play around with helium, just sticking to plain old air thx.
I feel that there is a need for a more powerful and extremely consistent/accurate air rifle for long distance shooting, ie. 100-150yds. I am hoping someone with the ingenuity and expertise can eventually do what the Steyr 2025ZM? did to make their 10m match rifle into a 50m bad ass. I do not know squat about the physics, etc. of advance airgunning, but I do believe that there is a market for a long range accurate air rifle. One day it will happen...I hope.
Re: I only post when I'm pretty sure of the facts. I've been a heavy user of helium

Wouldn't that make a gun shooting at over 1000 fps shoot to 1500 fps? Way over super sonic and probably not ideal.Of course you might be able to turn the power down and get an awful lot of shots that way.I have seen 110 fpe with helium from a .25 posted but I'am not sure how accurate that was.I can get 90plus fpe with mine as it is with air.I read in search where the shot count goes down with helium so I guess I don't see where the advantage is. But I'am sure if you like it there must be a reason.
I've been promising for a long time to compare the shot count of helium and nitrogen but at a ME that they are both capable of (I can make this happen with the Career). I have a gut feeling that I'll get a higher shot count with helium which is no guarantee that the consistency will be any good though
Shoot man I can put the end of my little finger in the transfer port on my Career.It's plenty big and shoots plenty hard the way it is.Mines a .25 caliber and I can get 12 shots over 1000 fps or stretch it out to 21 shots at 850-900 fps.The thing shoots so hard it's downright scarey.
I don't know the math on air guns but I do have an 80fpe .22 that is extremely accurate. I have a 60fpe gun that also is very accurate on any power level. The only thing is the number of shots and learning the curve which is not very difficult. On high power with the 80fpe gun I get 9 shots to the same poi then a 1/4 inch drop for the next several shots. However, if hunting I think 9 shots are more than adequate! jmag
Re: I don't think more power Has to be less accuracy.

I agree and my gun seems to shoot much better in the higher power ranges.Never have had to use many shots hunting either.Career's aren't meant to be babied.You shoot them hard,fast and accurate they way they were meant to be shot.
