2 questions.

1. Where did you get the round bolt handles?
2. How did you solve the issue re the VSR10 safety?

Trying to figure these at the moment

Thanks

Great idea re the CO2 bulbs.

I think you misunderstand re the safety. What I meant was is there anything specific I need to think about in terms of leaving them out/taking them out? Does it present any difficulties or can I just remove the switch and leave it at that?

I didn't misunderstand, just my joking, I don't bother fitting the safety catches, unless it's easy to do so. I have in the past found them to be a nuisance, So now I never use them anyway!
Most uprated trigger boxes don't have them either, which I get round to fitting when the original goes pop.

If you just remove the switch button, that's fine, no problems. I have on some taken the trigger box apart and remove the complete safety gubbins.

Mild steel tube 16 MM, is either from wickes the builders, or from eBay . I use one in between too, which is about 12mm , the inner slides through this easy, (I will check sizes for you.) I leave a 25mm end to the original outer barrel, space out with ally tube to make up size drill through, to touch second inner, tap out to 4mm in 3 places around the outer, this clamps altogether nicely.
Will put up pic later.
