Here are two more:

Kind of a Frankenstein gun, barrel and tube from a 2300s, CB breech, and your best guess as good as mine for the other parts.

Heres a 2260 running on a prototype tube (or at least it started out as a 2260). Hes had some problems getting them to his specifications, and the production units will be delayed until about Feb./March.

As a co2 bulk fill, its about as simple as it gets. Just unscrew the end cap, put it aside, and screw in the conversion tube. No mods, no take-apart, just screw in the tube and go fill it.

As a low pressure PCP, they work very well, but the number of shots is limited (because the air volume is limited). Best to have the valve secured by some valve retaining screws and I personally dont run mine past 120BAR (call that1750-1800PSI) but other people run theirs at much higher pressures.

*** How do you get the size of the images increased ??? <i></i>

My PM powered Crosman is a 1740

Crooked barn breech with extended probe.
Barrel is .177 10" with a nice crown, polished leade and ported.
Scope is a Walther 2 x 20. Grips are from Rick and East Indian Rosewood.
Trigger job, shims, lighter spring and adjuster with trigger shoe.
I've added a brass power adjuster for some bling and make it easy to remove the hammer spring.
I'm using a stock Crosman transfer port seal at the moment.
The UK Law is 6fpe for air pistols.
With a fill at 125 bar I getting around 22 shots at around 5.5fpe
I'm going to use some ideas from Robert's great posts to increase the shot count. Next job is to reduce the striker slightly.

Cheers
Ian

to our house just so we could have a little fun shooting that beauty. Now that I have seen one I know it would be money well spent and we darn sure know we wouldnt have been doing any shooting today if using Co2! I cant wait to see the 2250-2260 model as well as how that 2240 does bulked on Co2 once it warms up again.
Thanks again,
John & Tammy
