Best of the Best
|Casey's Outstanding MA1750|
|This project has been in the works for a few months now, and I got the finishing touch today. The men that contributed to this are true artist of the community. I
couldn't be happier with the turn out. I must also thank my wife for assisting (allowing) me to purchase yet another toy.
The action is a MA1750 done by Roy Weid of Mountain Air. The barrel has been re-crowned and ported, the valve has been modified and ported, custom trigger job with a nice 1 - 2 lb pull. Its good for 20 HARD shots on a 12 gram cart. He also installed a riser breech from RJ machine with a brass cocking handle so he could add a full length brass shroud which is also VERY effective. This thing is super quiet. Starlings beware....
I had a brass end cap made by Arthur Braden of Art's shack. This thing is SOLID, and nicely finished. A perfect touch to accent the shroud. I will definitely have more work for him in the future...
The stock showed up today to finish things off. It was made by Steve Corcoran of Woods and Water Outdoors. Its a 22XX ambi- stock done in camo laminate. The caps I choose are of ebony wood. I had Steve add brass accents between the caps to accent the shroud. With a last minute call, I went with a Morgan adjustable pad.
My Santa brought me the BKL mount and 6x Bugbuster to top it off.
I'm extremely thrilled with the magic put in this. Everyone has been a pleasure to work with, and look forward to doing business again.
Thanks, and Enjoy ~ Casey
Dunkins fully restored 400
I just did not have the heart to make this a thumbnail image. This is one of the nicest looking 400s I have ever seen. Here is the list of mods he did...interesting that he used a QB valve...don't think I have heard of anyone doing that before:
Took my old CR400 to task this winter. Here is the list of mods:
|I got the metal barrel band from Dave Welker. The metal barrel band wouldn't allow me to use the 10 inch barrel with a stock front sight. I did cut 3 inches off of a 14" barrel, so it's near 11 inches. Since I had to cut and crown, I figured I might polish the barrel to match the shiny barrel band. I kind of like the black and silver look, but will order some nice wood grips for it soon.
This gun has the flat top brass piston in it and shoots pretty hard. I have tuned other 1322s that came out better, but this one holds it's own. It is very accurate, though, and that's what counts. I shot a few 5-shot nickel sized groups today at 25 yards with open sights using JSB exacts. Rws Hobbies shoot nicely as well. It shot a little bit more open (quarter size) with cps.
Here's what it shoots with 14.3 grain cps:
10 pumps - 523 fps
12 pumps - 552 fps
15 pumps - 588 fps
20 pumps - 630 fps
I plan to use a 2100 intake valve in it soon to decrease the volume and increase the pressure. I'm just waiting for that to arrive from Crosman. I'll post on how it turns out.
my first time and I'm pleased with the results. I started out with
a phase 2 1377 and added a steel breech and brass trigger w/ shoe from
Crosman, a 14in barrel w/ brake from Roy at
MountainAir as well as a lighter sear spring and guide. Also, a set
of walnut target grips from RB Grips and
topped it off w/ a Red Dot sight. Had to use the RD-30 w/ air gun mount.
My next step (once I recover from the $$ I spent) will be a brass flat
top piston. Can hardly wait to see how better my grouping gets.
|Zombieheadhunters Tricked Out 2240|
2240 HPA "headhunter" carbine. This is my first major project
and, when I started, I had no idea if it would work or not - but thank
goodness it is indeed holding air and hitting quite hard. Wevo 13ci HPA
bottle, upregulated to 1050 psi output. Attached to the 22XX frame using
a QB tank adaptor, using the MaxFlo Boss valve set up with a delrin
valve from Roy. At the last minute, I found an aluminum tactical stock
and decided that it was the finishing touch the gun needed and very easy
to install. Tim Miller chronied the original set up at 634fps using
premiers on a single CO2 cart.
|Peter Ruut takes the 1100 to the next level.|
|Here are some pictures of a Crosman 1100 Trapmaster that I have modified into sort of a riot gun. I shortened the stock and fore arm and added a shell carrier. Internal mods include, heavier spring, lightened valve, longer release arm and a little bit of polishing. I t will shoot a .380 steel ball at about 550 fps. It will bury the ball into a tree at 35 yards. I t also has been bulked by modifying the original piercing cap. ~ Peter|
|Tony's Innovative 1320|
The elements of the gun are as follows:
RJ Riser Breech
Valve ported and polished
Poly-tube transfer port.
Walther .20 barrel (19 inches long)
|Peter Dukin's New 114 Creation|
|Took a 114 and restored it and dressed up the stock with a schnabel forearm. Gives it a much more modern look in my opinion, proving these old rifles have lots of life left in them! Enjoy|
