I would like to know the same. Hasn't anyone done this? By the way did anyone else get one of the 8" barrels from Precision Pellet I talked about in an earlier post a while back?

i have ask this ques on other forums. the ans.i receive was the 357 seems to be accurate enough without the scope. some have tried it with a red dot,like a crosman Model Number 0290RD, than went back to open sites. i need a red dot site because i wear glasses and have a problem with close up and seeing the site pic. clearly. i have use my girlfriend p-17 with a red dot scope an i have no problems shooting her gun.
as for the 8" barrel from PRECISION PELLET, i ordered a 8" and a 4" on monday and rec. them yesterday. both were black but i think RICK said that it was the last black 8" he had but has some in silver. they are complete with housing and barrel already assembled.now the 8" is a metal housing while the stubby 4" is plastic housing. neither one is ribbed for a scope.

now all i have to do is to buy 2 more 357's and change out the housing, it only take 1 screw to change them, an i'll have a trio of 357 guns. an all will be 10 magazines guns not like the their cousins which were only 6 or 8 shot mags.

hope this helps,
mitch

you can order the 8' barrel (complete) from Crosman-you have to phone them. The part # is357B204 $19.50 plus shipping. To me in FL it was $4.00 for a total of $23.52. I have tried many ways to mount a scope on it, but all failed. I use a red dot on the 6" barrel that I got from Compassico but I am not totally happy with it & I will change it out. I to am over 70 so I use a scope on everything.

As you can see there are a few ways you can go...mount a weaver rail, cut grooves in the metal rib, or file a couple spots on the rib and clamp down.

IMO, a tuned 357 is worth scoping, they can be quite accurate.

I emailed Rick at Precision Pellet and got one black and one silver 8" barrel. The Silver one has the brass barrel that Crosman advertised as the ACCUR-EIGHT & would raise the FPS to 470 and improve the accuracy. It was that barrel that prompted me to re-assemble my old 357 Phase I that had exploded when I disassembled it without de-gassing it (yep, that was me - dumb, dumb, dumb!

I found a suitable color in Krylon's Satin Nickel paint and painted the gun shell and barrel to match, and then reasembled it with the help of Crosman's online .PDF documentation and my other 357 opened up beside it... I honestly could not have put the silver gun together without my 2nd 357 to compare too. The .PDF manual is good, but some areas like springs are best installed by looking at a working example.

Hope you like the results. I plan on starting a collection of air guns that are copies of real firearms.

Regards, Craig

(P.S. - if anyone has any of the gray color cylinders shown in the picture, and you can part with them for a nominal price please let me know - thx)
