Lets see. over the last month or so I've tweaked the AS2250 quite a bit.

1st: Upped the pressure behind the pellet to 1800psi.
2nd: Beefed up the hammer spring.
3rd: Made a 1018 steel hollow probe bolt and cocking lever.
4th: Put anti-friction rings on the striker.
5th: Beefed up all seals.
6th: Made a metal transfer tube.
7th: Made a Delrin poppet.
8Th: Made a 12" shroud.
9Th: Had Leupold change the scope parallax from 60yrds to 25yrds.
10th:Changed the scope rings to a medium from a low.
11th:Waiting for a Pacific Pelletguns two stage trigger to arrive.

End result, went from 685fps w/25.4gr pellet to 790fps with the same 25.4gr pellet. 35.2fpe! Not a leak to be found anywhere.

Very pleased with how everything turned out. Raising the optic really helped with allowing for a much improved cheek weld. Groupings are good now but should be great after the new trigger goes in.

Going to have to change it's name to the turkey tenderizer -at least until rabbit season opens.

Im a fan of modding the XT. Mine's still CO2 but shrouded and hotter valve among other things. Have a Hawke AO scope on it. Curious about the metal transfer tube. Is that like the poly tube transfer port? What ID did you use please?

S.W.A.G. it!

It took a bit of trial and error to get the length right. It's a compression fit between the breech and valve.

The ID is a #18 drill as is the exhaust port in the valve.

Is your new exhaust valve seal flat faced or tapered?

I can't seem to get my rig above 20FPE in .22

I have a 1800psi tank like yours, poly transfer tube, B&A valve, discovery hammer spring (stock stryker) and a 2x" Discovery .22 barrel.

I get 20FPE

What am I doing wrong here?

Moar info is greatly appreciated brother.

a 3/16 OD "nipple" at the barrel end. This extension is approximately .05" long. The barrel port has been drilled out to 3/16" and the nipple fits into that hole. As a result, the transfer tube effectively extends flush with the ID of the barrel bore.

the port in the B&A valve. I have the same valve and needed to drill it larger with a #18 drill bit.

Also, I changed the inner valve spring to an external style. There are posts on the yellow somewhere that show this.

Tons of brass can be removed from the inlet side of the valve as well. Increases volume.

The ridged transfer tube gave me a 20fps bump.

Getting the hammer spring strong enough to open the valve quickly took some fussing. I used a spring that I bought at a machinist supply store here in San Diego. It has a larger diameter than stock so both the striker and end cap had to be bored out.

Make a Delrin spring guide that slips inside of that spring. Keeps the energy going in only one direction.

The most profound boost in energy came from making a Delrin poppet and getting rid of the stock Crosman with it's mystery goo seal. At such high pressure, seems the poppet gets smooshed into the valve body. This translates into the poppet effectively taking longer to reach full open. The Delrin poppet opens crisply. It's important to get that poppet open as fast as possible.

short of opening the gun up again. It's so sweet right now I don't want to disturb anything.

Stay tuned.
