Things have been a bit slow at work, so I was able to do a bit more on the project.

The trigger and sear pivots are 1/8" stainless shoulder screws.

Still need to radius the edges and buff the frame.

The Frame has a trigger pull adjuster built in. It also has a small recess notched into both sides to accommodate the breech/tube/frame clamps. More pics of those when I make them.

More to come.

Looks impressive but why the whimpy trigger?

I put the stock one in just for effect. Besides, the only things Crosman that are left in this build are the barrel, hammer, sear, and trigger.

It's a relativity low priority improvement as the project can move forward with the stock trigger. I still have a few major components to make and many loose ends to tidy up.

Sometimes I wonder if this project is appropriate for this forum anymore.

Unless the moderators object, I'll keep blogging it on this forum.

this is the kind of innovative, fresh approach kind of project that has been somewhat lacking here of late.
Even if everything becomes a custom one off, it will still serve as inspiration for us all.

It's good for inspiration how far you can take a Crosman, or see-what-my-Crosman-trigger-is-wearing-now!

...if uses just one Crosman part even - it belongs! That's what it's all about, right? Why keep reinventing the wheel, as many others have said and feel? Honestly, with respect, I can only endure X amount of pistols that are the SAME. The exception being who is making the parts. This you have going on is very different - outside the box while maintaining the emphasis of the forum; Crosman inspired.

if it was even inspired by a Crosman that's good enough!

the oval cut's definately add some really nice curb appeal. keep it coming!
