god only knows how many hours of mods are in that gun.
Yeah, but consider the bragging rights...was it worth however long he spent?

Kinda like Ron and his 78 taking the Nats.
I mean, he beat three USFT's and a Steyr, several TX200's, a Diana 54, and a Prosport, among others.

yes.If i thought i could tune a chinese springer to stomp out 2000 dollar guns, id spend 100s of hours modding it too
You and me both. The one time I beat a couple FWB65s and a Morini pistol

at air pistol silhouette with a crosman 357, it was so worth the dozens of hours spent modding the gun. 40 yeas later I can picture the looks on the shooters faces.
It did kinda take the wind outa my sails when the guy with the (stock other than a trigger job and rifle scope(taco hold)) daisy 747 beat us all.

thats as extreme~

Not really, I knew it could hit a dime at thirty feet twenty four out of twenty five

it was just a matter of me doing it. Weaver stance with a scope, or offhand iron sighted, depending on the class I shot.
There's a certain pressure on a shooter when his opponent has cleared all ten of his targets before he's fired at four... a lot of guys can't handle it, and start missing.
That day I was shooting against a guy with solid focus,behind that 747, and he won.

i think you

could surely make another run at this with the great availability of parts nowadays
Almost no one takes the Vigi/357 seriously, there are no aftermarket parts available
|December 23 2016, 3:18 PM |
so far as I know.
Besides, most of the fun for me is making the parts, and turning a pigs ear into a sleeper.

lol. I gotta grab a vigilante , never seen the new design
Hard to tell what is still QB, but that is an awesome build and fantastic performance

I should throw my ol' 57 in the dumpster, except I really like it. First gun I ever lube tuned and still decent.
Incredible that he took that field!
Other than the wood, trigger and barrel, the gun is mostly Chinese

The 57 tune kit from Archer was shoehorned in, he made an o-ring piston head, guide, and muzzle weight and put in a high grade spring.
Shooting under 800 fps...he must be really good at range-finding.
I've got a 58 that's been on the back burner for a while...but I'll never shoot as well as Mr Hull.
Looking at the gun, I suspect it's almost recoiless, and that what little there is is straight back...the recipe for an easy to shoot springer.

don't forget the barrel

is an HW. that gun is chinese in name only. Also, it is not just a mater of subbing in a bunch of off the shelf parts. He is an engineer and a good machinist and there is quite a bit of him in that gun. Having said that, if Scott could not shoot it would not have mattered. He can shoot.

That's pretty impressive! But the fact is some of the Chinese guns are tack drivers and if you got to know the gun well I could see it could shoot with the best. I need to dust my 58 off and see how well it shoots after seeing this!

We were shooting paint balls at 25 yards

at a fun shoot awhile back. The other guys with newer springers didn't hit any. I hit four before I missed with an ancient Peak B4-2 underlever. First gun I ever rebuilt. That was kinda' cool. Must have been the Hawke scope.
