    Yes I have tried different bullets down to 280 gr and from Max psi down to 3000 psi……I am concerned right now with the heavier bullets and best accuracy ………I think i even shot some Round Ball 143 gr at 2900-3000 psi and was like 1100 fps? Valve’s best attributes are sending 383 gr bullets over 925 fps with 3500 psi…….

    CF bottle is 1000 cc., or 1 liter………With valve at MAX pressure a 500 cc tank didn’t have enough air left to close the valve upon firing, as I do not use a return spring in valve and would DUMP TANK…..Doug Noble knew I had the 1 liter CF TANK and said to put valve in it and try shooting this way….With so much air going down barrel when fired this larger tank worked….I also picked up about 15 fps on chronograph with the bigger tank too…… Need an extension to put on tank to install valve in as DIA. of tank to big to mount directly to AIRFORCE FRAME……

    All works quite well………….Carl

    I have a 2 litre I need to mount and see how the “fit” is. Maybe too long and to round to get a cheek weld for the scope.

    Thanks Carl for the info!

    You are welcome………….This angled adapter MAY work for 2 liter tank? Scope can come WAY BACK?? I have this angled adapter but have a straight adapter on TEXAN now, to get the set back needed……… give this a look. Comes shipped from I THINK INDIA where mine came from??

    Is that the stock barrel or did you upgrade the barrel to a different kind?

    I upgraded barrel. Stock Lothar was a decent barrel and shot on video CLAYS at 600 yds with it. After doing the 600 yd shoot, new barrel was in so removed stock bbl and never shot it again. I wanted a PREMIUM Barrel. Ordered a Krieger, with 1-26″ twist rate. Wait time was 8 months and then Gunsmith had to turn to fit Texan insides and that was more time and $$$$. All the upgrades were worth it to me as I am now SWAGING my OWN Bullets for it too….
