It sounds Quite intersting How can it be accomplished on a 1322(or .177 version?)
What does ACP stand for?
I see in replies that a different hammer and/or spring was used.

What about tube,valve size & Stats?

I have an older 140 tube or should ity be larger dia.

Just so you know,I won't use this for an entry,but for my own use in further Improving
even Modded 1322 Performance!

Thanks in Advance

Trust me on this one....

Initial setup, tuning,a nd expecially shooting the thing after its setup......

While you will be in good company, and have access to the unrpentent enablers, er um, I mean, the Gurus of ACP setups, it will still consume an enormous amount of your consciousness.....

Now having said that (half tongue in cheek), the fact remains that., for myself anyway, the AC build is one of the most satifying things Ive ever done airgunning. And that rifle is one of the 3 I consider my ultimate favs... and probably my answer to the question of "if you can only have one gun".....

Some work up front, but its definitely worth it in the long run. especailly in reduced pump count

...was Al Nibecker's ANA Quigley - unfortunately and sadly, now (apparently) defunct.

...what you might expect to get if you just described an airgun to a brilliant inventor and engineer who then - never having actually seen one - designed and built his own from scratch.

The uniqueness starts with the fact that most of the entire Quigley powerplant - pump, piston, air reservoir, (complex) air metering system, firing valve, and breech, are tucked into the moving pump handle that you open and close as you charge the gun!

What's perhaps less amazing is that he didn't sell many.
