Soooo... If I get some power down shells, push out the restrictor, place into the webley shells, I'll have a site legal webley to use? Or would it be better to get one of those refillable green gas reservoirs in place of the co2?

You can actually buy Dan Wesson branded restrictors to retro-fit into unrestricted shells - I know for a fact that they exist - though where to buy them from I'm at a loss I'm afraid...

I have purchased one and have it in my hand at this very moment - once I run the Co2 cartridge out (or work out a safe way to remove or vent a half empty cartridge) I'll give the greengas reservoir a test and crono' and post up the results.

:happyswing:

I've ordered some power down shells that I'm going to break apart. Also ordered the greengas reservoir so we'll see which one is better.

My power down shells turned up today. Managed to break them apart and put the restrictor into the webley shells. Now the webley shoots around 250fps! Perfect for skirmishing and more than enough for cqb.

Unfortunately the green gas reservoir was very lack lustre with an fps of 100 at the most. It could probably go higher but I've found that it leaks quite a lot of gas when you screw it in, much more than the co2 capsules. Practised a few times trying to screw the bolt very quickly but didn't get very good results. Seeing as the power down shell method is working brilliantly I don't really see the point in trying to get the green gas to work.

Need to put a hop unit in and then I should be able to get at least one hit before I reload! :lol:

P. S. Anyone want some Dan wesson shells? ;)

EDIT: I'm happy to sell the green gas reservoir if anyone is interested it giving it a go. £5 + postage.

Is it possible to mod the power like on Dan Wessons, so you can use the normal shells?
