I've got a Weirauch HW80 which was the thing when I was a kid. The latest pneumatics are deadly, I think anything over 22ftlbs muzzle velocity requires an FAC. My F-in-law has an FAC pneumatic. It's so complicated, we can't ever get the thing fully charged or upto full power.

Yup and 6 for a pistol.

Just to put it into perspective 9mm is about 350ftlbs as in a MP5 and a 12 bore is about 2200!!!

Ok, OK,
Need to import a silencer for a 36ftlb. rile into Mexico where they are not considered a firearm. UK dealers will not export so I have to find a non UK dealer/ manufacturer that can. Will try Germany tomorrow. What a bunch of BS, however, same rules as the USA.

Surley muzzle velocity is measured in distance /time ie feet per second. how does ftlbs relate

Cant you just buy one for a 22LR and use that ? or do you need an FAC for that over there even if its not for firearm use ? You could make one pretty easily too, even from plastic clicky They are more amenable to them here on larger calibres now due to 'Health and Safety' regs would you believe, you couldnt make it up
