Cyclone Single Shot

Postby Scottish Biker on Sun Jun 01, 2014 2:06 am

Hi thanks for adding me.
I used to own an older unregulated Cyclone & I've now bought a new .177 Cyclone tactical, BETAS regulator, cylinder gauge with MTC Connect.

I'd like to use for HFT competitions but need a single shot magazine.
Can someone help?
Also I'd like a short silencer any recommendations?

I've found a company that will supply a .22 single tray but they're in Norway.

Has anyone used these trays?

Can anyone recommended any alternatives?

I heard rumors one of the guys at Air Guns of Arizona sells single shot trays for the Cyclone.

google them and call them up and ask.

you said

I'd like to use for HFT competitions but need a single shot magazine.



i shoot HFT and use a magazine with me FX Cyclone. There are no rules against using a magazine. I find it more convenient to use a magazine. I can load it between lanes and then examine the skirts to see if any are bent. if so, i push it out and load another pellet. when it comes time for shooting, i don't waste time fumbling for a pellet. since you only shoot 6 shots max per lane (2 per target), the 8 pellet magazine works just fine.

I don't have a single shot tray, but if i did, it would be to try the pellets, such as Predators, that don't fit in the magazine. but frankly, those type pellets are gimmicks and i wouldn't shoot them anyways.

I don't know what type of HFT rules you use but in 2014, Scottish clubs became UKAHFT Affiliated and adhere to their rules.
We get one shot at each target(30 targets) & if a multi-shot magazine is used it must be removed between lanes, even if only feet away.

you can remove it. i do that as well. that is when i refill it, between lanes. it holds 8 (the .22), and the lanes have a max of 6 shots (at least here). i have two magazines.

You are quite correct in the HFT rules that you can use a multi shot but must remove the magazine between lanes some shoots I.E. daystate masters there is one lane per target so it means a lot of mag changes, I'm new to the cyclone but have shoot a lot of guns and am very impressed with it my current guns are FTP 900 and HFT 500
