Ratworks tuning are now making a HW100 cylinder tube that you put your original ends on.
Does anyone have one yet? It is made from aluminium and I know of two sizes for FAC 390mm
And 440mm. That's all I know now but would like to hear from anyone who has more information.

Just saw your post about Rat Works and although I've not given him a weihrauch to work on he did a lot of work on my BSA R10 with amazing results. I would not hesitate to use him again and would recommend his work 100%.

Yes Huw he does have a very well respected reputation. I bombarded Phil with a lot of questions through email and he answered every one.
I have ordered the 440mm cylinder but it will take a few weeks to arrive down under.
Looking forward to it.

I think about 2 more mags from my FAC 22 running at 27ft/lbs with a FSB length barrel. Would easily be 3 more if I drop it back to 24ft/lbs that the gun was originally but I like it where it is.

Can you tell us a bit more information on the Tuitium. Are they the tubes and you put ends on and who will be making them?

This is what came back to me and will let you know more when i get the go a head

Hi Mitch
It would make it cheaper if the fittings from the original cylinder was used in the titanium cylinder. Shot count is a mystery at the moment. I have a number of options all would alter the shot count.
1st option is just supply the cylinder and the customer fits his fittings to it. That's the cheaper option.
2nd option is we supply the complete cylinder ready to fit onto the rifle.
3rd option is for me to fit a external regulator onto the new cylinder. This could be a good option because the titanium cylinder could then be charged to 300 bar the first regulator will reduce its pressure from 300 bar down to say 130 bar then the original hw reg will reduce the pressure from 130 bar to say 95/100 bar this will extend the life of the hw regulator and you will get 300 bar worth of shots at 60% lighter than the original cylinder.

Contacted Phil at ratworks and had a email back

Hi Mitch,
The cylinders are a lightweight replacement body for the standard stainless HW cylinder. They were made to compliment the Tench Regulator and tune package I do for the HW100 now. On their own they offer no shotcount increase over the standard cylinder, however when paired with the tench reg and tune package, and the higher fill pressure allowed from the new cylinders they give an 80-100% increase over the standard HW setup.

Asked about the tune and this came back

Hi Mitch,

The Tench regulator and tune is £200, the reg replaces the standard HW reg and renders the cylinder non removable as the regulator is fitted into the tube connector assembly. The rifle is totally stripped and cleaned of all factory grease which causes issues, and parts are polished and modified for better consistency. The hammer and valve setup are modified to decrease the air wastage far beyond standard and also reduce noise from the rifle, they're relatively quiet as standard, but with the modifications they become even quieter!


Sounds very good in my opinion
