Does it increase fps and accuracy? Can the rear sight be put on it?

the stock rear site doesn't fit the steel breech. but there are numerous peep, notch, red dot and scope options given that the breech is grooved. I think the breech makes the gun more accurate, because the barrel is more rigidly attached. I don't think it improves fps. I did flat top piston and valve mod and did get a significant fps per pump increase. I added a longer barrel with the steel breech. probably would not have attempted that with the plastic breech.

The plastic receiver and a long barrel works for me!

If you grew up on the old Phase II 1377, the new plastic breaches aren't so bad... LOL It all depends on the application... I wanted scope mounts on my 1377 so I went for the steel...

I see you have another nice creation.....

...2260 stock and trigger pack, 1760 barrel cut down a bit, flat top piston and valve, steel breech, etc, etc:


She's not old enough yet to shoot it so I do for her (smile). Next year she may be ready. I do from time to time put a pump or two in it and let her think she is shooting it - under my direct supervision and instruction. She knows to be safe with guns... This one will never be sold as it belongs to her. If she doesn't want it or shows no interest in it when she ages, her son or daughter may some day. We built it together last year. This summer the stock may be stripped and stained pink! Hey, she would like it pink she says! We will do that I told her.

She's lucky to be growing up with such great access to airgunning

I hope to get me a 2260 trigger pack and build me a 1377 based rifle/carbine along those lines.
Such a cool looking gun Phil.

Either way they are both held on the tube by the same dinky little screw. I guess I'd be more inclined to fork out the dough for a steel receiver if it were attached better. I can see using the metal receiver if you want to scope the gun. I have no intention of scoping my Long Rifle though.
Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
