I'm not sure this is germane to the focus of this group but will still ask.

Not only do I shoot pellets with air guns, I also shoot them in some of my rifles.

Here are a few examples:



CUSTOM MADE ADAPTER FOR 22 HORNET USING LARGE PISTOL OR RIFLE PRIMER
A REAL BLAST OUT OF MY CONTENDER





CUSTOM MADE ADAPTERS FOR 223 REMINGTON USING LARGE PISTOL OR RIFLE PRIMER AND SHOTGUN PRIMERS
CASES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED FOR SHOTGUN PRIMERS





CUSTOM MADE ADAPTERS FOR 22-250 REMINGTON USING SHOTGUN PRIMERS
CASES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED FOR SHOTGUN PRIMERS







CUSTOM MADE ADAPTER FOR 257 ROBERTS USING SHOTGUN PRIMERS

I also have a few adapters for shooting 177 pellets in my handguns.
Here is an example:





CONVERT-A-PELL 177 IN THE 45ACP

I'd like to converse with anyone else using these type of devices.

I know it's a major stretch, but air gun pellets are what are being shot.

However, if this is too far out of the group focus, and the moderators chose to delete it, I'll understand.

What say you?

What kind of velocities/accuracy do each one yield?

They do add flexability and super quiet practice.

All pellet shooting chamber adapters were made to my order by Ace Dube of MCA Sports in Anchorage.

http://www.mcace.com/ (Call him on the weekend, he doesn't understand email) (907) 248-4913

MCA offers a long line of chamber adapters for center & rimfire guns.
I have 40 assorted adapters and barrel inserts in my collection... Most from MCA.

Sportsman's Guide recently advertised a simular adapter too.

I've just recently upgraded to a new chronograph, (my 20+ year old Model 33 with the 10 ft screen spacing gave uneven results with pellets), and will by doing a full Velocity evaluation of all my adapters soon.

Accuracy is variable. Consider that I am driving a skirted pellet down a barrel designed to stabilize a much longer bullet at considerably higher speed.
Some guns group well, (My 22 Hornet Contender) while others, (My Ruger N0.1 22-250) not so well.
Best results are with the heaviest pellets.
Also, filling the area between the head and the skirt with soft (Home Made... 'Peanut Butter' viscosity) bullet lube helps when using shotgun primers for power.

http://convert-a-pell.com/

My Convert-a-pell sets (9mm, 44 Mag, & 45 ACP) use a brass barrel insert that is properly rifled for pellets.
The only problem is that they are held in place by rubber "O" rings.
Accuracy is fair. I mainly use them for trigger control practice, shooting over my pool table into a 22 bullet trap.
Any bad habits show up very quickly. Having very low report, (I still wear a headet) virtually no recoil, and still making holes in a target, I can really work on my off hand shooting skills.

Anyway, its a fun way to burn up old odd lot or unidentified primers.

If you are interested, I'll be glad to report the results of my Accuracy / Velocity tests later.

And of course, I need to state that I am no way connected with any firm mentioned in this post, except to be a satisfied customer.

Steve

Well if that's not the ultimate blend of a powder burner meets
airgunner. Laughing

How about Airgunner meets Archer?

http://airowgun.com/pellet.php

An attachment that shoots pellets using an Archery Bow....

Or How About this one?

http://www.swivelmachine.com/html/stealth.htm

An Air Gun that shoots arrows....

(I have the 10-22 Model of this one, but discussion is obviously way!! off the base subject of air guns)

I believe I mentioned in my introduction that I like off the wall projects...

Now, I'll go back to real air gun subjects.... really

Have a good one,

Steve

The idea of using primers to propel airgun ammunition isn't new, but your collection of adapters takes it into the stratosphere. Very cool.

There were the old Zimmerstutzen rifles and the Flobert rimfires that used a primer to launch a BB. Today we have the .22 rimfire CB and BB caps, and also the Aguila .22 rimfire Colibris. Mendoza of Mexico still makes primer-powered BB guns (Salva con munición) and primer-powered pellet guns (Salva con diábolo).

Wow! Shocked I love it! That is one of the most unique ideas I've ever seen with gun conversion.

And that most certainly fits in with air guns. Air is a mixture of gases. In a typical air gun, we compress the air (gas) and the release it quickly. When your primers are ignited, they produce a quickly-expanding gas that pushes the pellet through and out of the barrel. I love it! I know, I already said that, but I'll say it again, I LOVE IT! Cool

Thank you for sharing it with us and thanks for all the pictures. We love pictures. Very Happy

That's all very nice but it's not allowed on this side of the pond so I will now go and cry in a corner if you don't mind. Razz

I don't think I'd ever use them but that is a very cool idea, what a cross between air and powder
