Ken Fawcett falls out. Look for one of his posts and bug him a little via email; we need to light a fire under him.

I've always thought the British-made 1250 in .177 would make a neat project gun. I'd love to try to tune one down to low to mid 700s with std weight pellets. Its such a robust platform, I bet that would be one sweet shooter at that power level.

I think we're all Bozos on this bus.

<P>I got a 1250 in 177. After about two months I had Rich from Mich convert it to .20.
it still shoots up in the high&nbsp;900's and with the LW barrel on it. it's very accurate.
Stock, the trigger sucks. You'll have to get a Rich Trigger insert to get it to where it needs to be.
I have tried the "other Gold" trigger..... it didn't work as advertised. Not bad, but it's just a single stage trigger.
The Rich for Mich insert will get you a nice, very light two stages.
The stock is "fat" and feels a bit clumsy, but with a real barrel and trigger on it, it's a great hunter.
I did a review on it after Rich did the .20 upgrade with some Chrony numbers, I'll come back and update this post
after&nbsp;I get home with that info for you.
** Okay the number were: 980 for Beeman FTS and 950 for Crow mags.
Quite a speed for a .20 springer This is one heck of a pump!
Here's a pic of the 1250 (right) with the .20 barrel&nbsp;next to my Hunter Extreme (.177).

<P>I did a Gamo 1250 for myself with an HW 25 caliber barrel and it's a monster of a springer.</P>
<P>Shoots 19.5 Webleys at 850 fps giving you a a bit over 31 FPE, and with the HW barrel it's very accurate. I figured that the Gamo with the large air volume it has it would make a very nice big bore rifle and by the results I was right.</P>

I need to get the rest of my airgun pics off the back-up drive on the server. I travel around for my job and have not been home since before Halloween.
