Just thought I would share this with you.
Pressure gauge/quickfill for Ultra and Scorpion
I have been field testing all week a pressure gauge/quickfill arrangement developed by Bowkett who designed the pcp range for BSA. It replaces the charging valve assembly on Ultras and Scorpions. Here are a couple of pics of his prototype. I found it easier to charge than the standard probe system and the gauge was very handy due to the small air container on the Ultra limiting the shot count. A quick glance meant that you were sure and there was not that awful feeling of having got to your shoot only to wonder if you had topped up the little beast or not back home. This particular Ultra has an experimental self regulating valve system developed by Bowkett that replaces his existing design produced by BSA. It has the same air container volume but in .22" gives over 50 shots from a lower fill pressure than standard. I have to admit shooting this paticular Ultra has given more pleasure than I had from the
advantages of the the pressure gauge with which†it was fitted. That is just a personal thing. I like shooting. The rest is just a†task I was given†- and someone has to do it. Hehehehehe. Nice
