The work done in the Tench Regulator and Tune does everything possible to increase the ‘mechanical accuracy’ making sure the pellets journey through the rifle is as friendly as possible to give the most chance of being accurate. The way the air is delivered to the pellet in the rifle after our tuning work is done can help improve the trajectory and windage characteristics of your pellets too, this helps give a more repeatable and favourable ‘in the field accuracy’ to your setup.
As part of fitting a Tench regulator and tuning the rifle we also carry out a service with all orings changed. The action is extensively worked on to increase the overall feel of the rifle, performance and efficiency. After the regulator is fitted and the tune carried out you can expect a shot-to-shot consistency of single figures as soon as the rifle has been worked on.
When fitting a Tench regulator and tuning the rifle we also engrave the breech block with our RAT WORKS logo as a way of showing that your rifle has been regulated and tuned by us, this is free of charge as part of the work. From January 2023 your power & consistency report will be stated on your invoice that is sent to you via email. This is done through our SKAN chronograph, the rifle is held correctly in a mount to guarantee accurate results. The consistency will improve further as the rifle is used.
The Tench Regulator & Tune package is designed to make your rifle more consistent and air efficient, not more powerful. All sub 12 (non FAC) rifles are set to around 11.5ft/lbs after any work is done, keeping you well within the legal limit.
Below is a list of all the work undertaken as part of the tune.
- Ensure the assembly is free of any oil, grease or debris which can cause consistency issues
- Hammer modified for efficiency
- The original Anti Tamper is removed to allow correct power setting
- Lubricant is added to parts of the assembly to allow a smoother action
- The assembly is checked for straightness and any damage that could cause accuracy issues
Exhaust valve, transfer port & barrel
- The exhaust valve stem assembly is modified to run more efficiently
- Crown of the barrel re-cut the to increase the rifles accuracy
- Transfer port and barrel are secured correctly within the assembly
- Trigger let-off is set to a comfortable and safe amount.
- Sears are inspected for damage and replaced if required, the sears are generally of an excellent quality finish so there is rarely any need to modify them beyond the factory finish.
Please note the following for the HW100 Models specifically:
After a Tench regulator has been fitted to your rifle you will be unable to unscrew your cylinder when pressurised as the standard valve is removed and replaced with the Tench Regulator unit. Removing the cylinder with a Tench regulator in should be done with caution as it will invalidate your warranty unless authorised.
WE WILL NOT WORK ON ANY HW100 THAT HAS AN A&M CYLINDER. FOR US TO WORK ON YOUR RIFLE YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE US WITH YOUR ORIGINAL WEIHRAUCH CYLINDER OR PURCHASE A COMPLETE LIGHTWEIGHT CYLINDER FROM US TO FIT DURING THE TUNING WORK. WE WILL REFUSE TO WORK ON ANY RIFLES SENT TO US WITH AN A&M CYLINDER AND YOU MAY BE CHARGED.
The full-service strips and rebuilds your rifle replacing all seals and renewing any worn parts to revamp performance while sorting any problems you may have such as leaks, low power, poor shot count or other faults.
RAT Works Lightweight Cylinder Body
Please note, this only replaces the 'middle part' of your cylinder, you will keep your original HW Gauge and QF unit. This lightweight cylinder body is 50% lighter than the original Weihrauch one to improve balance and reduce overall weight. The Lightweight cylinder body does not offer any other performance benefits.
RAT Works Replacement Quick Fill Ends
These quick fill ends are a direct replacement for the standard end, fitted with a RAT Works pressure gauge and the QF Valve design designed to stop dust and dirt from entering your air cylinder to eliminate the chance of contamination and leaks. They use the standard HW100 fill probe to fill.
PLEASE NOTE: We are not able to work on rifles fitted with aftermarket regulators other than ones we have fitted ourselves.
We can engrave either our logo or a logo/image of your choice, this can only be done on wooden/laminate stocks only, the Plastic or Soft touch stocks cannot be engraved.
