I'm very tempted to give Deban a ring and see if they or i could fit/order a Smooth twist and a FAC Hammer etc.. My be worth letting them set it up for me fun as it is to tinker.

Hi Graeme. I sold the Ranchero a few months ago to fund another gun. :oops:

It was running darn nicely at 800fps with 8.44gr JSBs so left it at that, the new owner seems to be happy with that too.

The smooth twist barrel looks very interesting indeed.

I have shot a couple of thousand Crosman Prem 10.5gr, from an HW100, Ranchero and S410 TDR, it's a great pellet if your gun likes them which mine did. The JSB Heavys are an excellent alternative though and performed marginally better in my HW100. The 7.9gr Crosman are not readily available around these parts so I have stuck with JSB Express in the only gun I use light pellets in, a HW30S.

I got myself an Edgun Lelya in 5.5mm and a very sweet little shooter it is too. This one has been restocked by the same fellow that did the carbine stock for the Ranchero, my friend, Kevin Du Toit. That said, the Ranchero will hold a special place in memory for me, I might even buy it back one day if the situation allows and the new owners is agreeable.
