    Take a breath Stephen, Falcons are great little guns you've just got to get to know their little ways lol

    falconowners.myfastforum.org :: Index

    For all things Falcon! You'll find manuals, stripping guides, tinkering advice and in fact enough advice to shake a stick at.

    That should get you well on your way

    I can't really draw you a picture as I'm in a rush and my crayons are safely locked away as The Sme was round earlier and if left unattended will happily munch his way through the lot!!!

    Hey mate :0 That flat head of yours comes in useful sometimes doesn't it Shauns absolutely right, you're going to need the adaptor once you figure out what you have to do

    So drop the seller a line or ask on the falcon forum if you can't get hold of one someone is likely to have one laying around.

    Hi Stephen,

    If you have not resolved your issue, it is quite straightforward.

    The early Flacons had a steel end cap , that screwed over a 1/8 BSP male thread.

    In order to fill the gun, you have to directly attach the flexi fill hose to the rifle, then fill in the normal way.

    As things moved along, Falcon introduced two types of quick fill attachment, one with a completely useless silencer thingy where the probe went in from the bottom, and the other a simple probe fill attachment that replaced the steel end cap. It has a blued steel rotating collar to protect the fill port when not in use.

    You were then able to simply fill the thing with a small fill probe, in the 'normal' way.

    In all cases, the fill valve is located in the brass body of the receiver end plug, so there is no additional valve in the upgrades.

    If you are still stuck. the upgrades are available from BEST Fittings, and some other places.

    Hope that this helps you on your quest, unless the solution has already been found.

    Regards

    Rat Splatter.
