If there are no restrictors available on the market (I've not seen them) I'd be more than happy to make some up for you, removable ones at that!

After getting one from the wife I've got to say I love this gun. Only problem is its shooting at 440fps. Anyone had anymore ideas about reducing the fps?

Ralph

Airsoft World are selling these:

http://www.airsoftworld.net/dan-wesson- ... shell.html

Now the shells don't fit but you can break them open and take the restrictor out and put it in the Webley shells and it brings the fps down to 280. Having said that I can't help thinking that a wildly inaccurate high powered pistol is exactly what the 0.455 Webley was...

Incidentally Airsoft World currently have the Webley in both Black and Battlefield finishes at £150.00. I can see no excuse for everyone not having one of these, certainly at Road to Rome I think 50% of the Brits had them. They are a thing of beauty.

Cheers

That certainly looks like my best bet to get the fps down to site legal limit but 280 fps seems a bit unfair on the webley. Probably get some to try out.

Bit late with these, but thought I'd post some pictures of the hop mod I did to my Webley. Followed the instructions on how to do it off the excellent Nagant tutorial that's kicking about on the net. Had to fiddle about with the o-ring I used, as initially it was blocking the BB in the barrel! Got there in the end, though, and it has much better range now. :happyclap:

Image
^ This was taken shortly after I started. Small round file with the barrel locked safely in a vice.

Image
^ Taken after glueing and trimming the o-ring. I used very fine sandpaper to scrape off the excess and make it flush with the outside of the barrel.

Image
^ The results! I neatly wrapped a few layers of tape around this end to keep the barrel from rotating during fitting and firing. Seems secure enough, but time will tell (there are more complicated, permanent solutions to stop this though).

If I can do it, anyone can. :wink:

Thanks for sharing the pics Kendo. Out of interest, how do you remove the inner barrel from the frame?

At some point I might try my hand at the hop mod, as the power down restrictors make it skirmishable, but pretty much neuters the range. Not that it had much in the first place!

Image
^ Remove the smaller of the screws at the hinge with a flathead screwdriver

Image
^ You will now be able to swing the small lever up, which will allow you to remove the cylinder.

Image
^ Tap out the small recessed pin and the silver barrel mounting will pop out, allowing you to remove it and the barrel entirely.

Hope that helps! 8)

Patrolbase too but they're £50 dearer than airsoftworld.

Just got myself one of these from Airsoft World today. Not had a chance to try it, but rather pleased with it, though the 'blued' finish on my "war finish" version, looks not a nice/even as others I've seen (and I even got to pick the best looking one they had out of the two they proffered to me when I asked if I could see more than one after the first one looks rather aweful)...

If anyone has any friends with one, it's worth buying a bulk load (25) of them from here; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321648486067 (no connection to seller)
Which gives you 25 of them for £34.99 delivered. The equivilent 25 would cost you £41.64 delivered from Airsoft World.

Just for reference for anyone who wants to go this way, it appears to be the PPS gas cartridge product PPS-0027 which should fit the MkVI, PPS does manufacture another gas cartridge which is very similar that they've designed for the replacing the CO2cartridge in their K98, but it appears bigger and is the product PPS-0028.

Cheapest place I've found so far (including p&p) is from eBay shipped from HK:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PPS-Steel-CO2 ... 1672380820

BTW: the ones that AirsoftWorld are selling appear to be the PPS-0028, which are fatter and may not fit (read the review):
