Cool adjustable air strippers

eh up, is there a standard/best "gap" between the cones or is it just trial and error, what is yours set at? or is it set at the distance you bought it at.

As a starting point I was told to set the cone the same distance away from the end of the barrel as the length of the pellet you're using. Then fine tune it a fraction of a mm at a time.

Default My twin cone set up

I try to get the cone set ,so when the pellet has cleared the barrel the dome of the pellet is in the cone
The second cone is set flush with the end , I don't think it's doing a lot to be honest but it looks good

Mine is set about 3.5 metres from the end of the barrel.

Maybe his rifle takes 1.77" pellets?

The real answer is, the gap has to be at least a quarter of the bore or it won't work; anything longer than that is a matter for experiment and may well be pellet related.

Thanks for the info - have moved the cone up and down a bit - at the moment the preferred gap is about3/8th of an inch. Being (as I am lead to believe) that when the pellet exits the barrel the "dirty" air spreads along the cone I thought that a small gap wouldn't give the cone a reasonable chance to disperse the blast away from the pellet. Still testing though.
