That would require a different air resevoir tube, yes? If that's the case, you likely won't see many, as the price will approach that of a Marauder. Still, someone MUST have done this. If there is one truth to this hobby it's this: "why buy an expensive gun, when I can buy a cheap one and pour money into it".

<div>The Discovery is not a cheap gun. On the contrary, this is a descent alternative to guns costing more than double.  Many of us bought them right when they came out. Way before it could be compared to the Marauder. When I got one, the only option considered was a AA 410H for over a grand and I already had a B50. A thousand dollars could also be a new AR15, or a Smith .45 or...</div><div> </div><div>Historically, some airguns, like the QB78, have been unbelievably moded. If no one is doing tube / valve upgrades yet, it is just a matter of time.  </div>

I wasn't alluding to the quality of the gun - only the price (compared to it's counterparts).

I stand by my previous statement - just replace "cheap" with "inexpensive". If you'd like evidence, take a look a the 1377/1322 and Condor forums.

The Disco is a great gun..and with a RIM installed you have a repeater, which is even better..i imagine the air tube is safe for 3000 psi, but NO MAY would I do it until I had that verified by a metalurgist, or someone equally capable of figuring that out..maybe Crosman would answer that question. Perhaps too, there are aftermarket tubes available that meet stds. req'd. for 3K psi...
