Anyone who has spent time working on the BAM B50/51 rifles is familiar with "the book", a technical reference compiled from experienced airgun hackers and tuners.

With the recent blowout of M10's and subsequent rise in interest, it seemed the right time to start a project like this for this rifle. I'm not airgun savvy enough to do all the fancy stuff myself, but when I come across valuable information I include it into this "M10 Technical Reference", with original author's permission of the different sections.

You can find it at /home/mpace/Dropbox/Public/M10 technical reference.pdf

This is ongoing project. If you have more technical information like the o-ring sizes, parts measurements, parts sources, efficiency improvements, etc. I would be happy to include it so others can benefit.

Enjoy, and thanks!

I'm a newbe here and with a M10 so this is probably a dumb question, but what is the site to use for the link (/home/mpace/Dropbox/Public/M10 technical reference.pdf)?

Thanks for your help!

"the book" for the B-50 has been valuable

Really.

Your work, and the work of your friends, in the B50 book was my inspiration, it had an immeasurable amount of information in it that would have taken someone months to conjure up.

The sharing (widely and accessibly) of technical information, discovered through the hard work of hands on researchers.

That's us. Devoted (obsessed?) amateurs in many cases.

..would be nice to have a "book" on the M-10 (like the old BAM 50/51).

Are several simple things I like about the M-10...it really does have some features that really are friendly for modding/experimentation.

It's kind of simple-old school tech. Nothing is really delicate, and the vast majority of parts/screws don't perform more than one function. Makes working on it a bit easier.

Old school also as it's kind of mega-powered in .22.

That long bolt throw gives a long loading area. I'm never cramped for pellet length; there's about .66" of open loading port. Would make for an easy loading slug-gun. (yeah..am thinking about cast bullets. No reason I couldn't use a CF barrel (.224) if the cast bullets matched, which would let me go to a 1:12 or 1:10 twist and fling cast 50 or 54gr. slugs).

Like the full size bolt and bolt handle, much more of a firearms feel to operating. Haven't a clue what the bolt is made from. It's too dense (weight for volume) for Al., it's not plated brass, has the polish color and "grain" of steel, but is non magnetic.

The odd separate barrel transfer port actually makes it easier to try different transfer port diameters.

It's one of the easier rifles to rebarrel.

They got the stock to fit a full sized person...either they learned, or the Chinese population is getting larger.


BUT...

Safety on the trigger is a stupid idea (what's the one part of a rifle you don't want to touch when you don't want to shoot?). AA used a system like that on their AA s510 twin-tube...so it's stupid in English and Chinese.

We sold out pretty quickly and these cannot be replaced at that price, but we do have quite an inventory of parts, breeches, barrels of all calibers, a few regs and other odds and ends left for the M-10 platform.

If you need any info, or details just let me know.

Be glad to help.

Thanks

Would you have a list of all the O-ring sizes used in the rifle? It would be great to include this "most basic" information.

Also, if you would have any information on the length and thread of the screws used in the gun, I think that would be 2nd most valuable, so if one strips a guy can get one locally.

And a selfish question...would you happen to have a multishot breech and magazine?

As for your parts situation for critical stuff like valves, poppets, springs, etc, do you plan to continue stocking these or are you just selling them to depletion?

And if there is anything specific you wish I would include based on customer needs and feedback, just let me know, we will work it out.
