Just fired mine for the first time. It is outstanding! No problem bouncing a can at 15 ft. Great balance and accurate. Truely semi-auto with 100 BBs.

I have one and I like it

The only problem is that I'm using very old 8gr co2 cartridges that I got from a friend. Some are good and some are weak,so it's a crap shoot getting any consistant accuracy.KD

It is an excellent shooter. 100 BB capacity is really fun. Very accurate and plenty of power at the low setting. The high power setting punches a can like a .22

I have had a Healthways Plainsman for almost 20 years and never shot it for lack of co2 cylinders. What are the restaurant co2 cylinders used for? What does the screw at the bottom of the grip adjust? Are these things worth anything?..thanks in advance

CO2 cartriges for Plainsman .175

May 20 2009, 7:40 PM 

Your messae is an old one, hope you still have this e-mail.
I bought a Plainsman .175 in it's orignial box at a yardsale 3 or so years ago, but haven't found 8 gram CO2 cartridges. Neighbor just told me today, that ACE hardware carrys them. We will see.
Any luck finding them? Also, the info on this pistol on the internet said that a holster came with or was available at one time. Any info on them?

Seals etc.

The seal is a fairly common "O-ring" that you can get at a plumbing-supply store. If you don't have the original, take the butt-plug with you; you want one that will stick up a little bit above the shoulder.

The 8-gram cylinders are used in soda-water bottles. USed to be able to get them in grocery stores, nowadays mainly in hardware stores.

Some of the cheap rubber o rings swell up and are not suitable for use in co2 airguns.

September 1 2009, 1:52 PM 

Am I missing something? I've opened up the door and loaded roughly 20 bb's, brand new co2 (8gr) - gun fires, but no BB drops into firing chamber. Have I missed a step?
Help & thanks

Just got a HEALTHWAYS 'SHARPSHOOTER 175', a single action springer; you cock it my raising the barrel then it just slips back onto the receiver and you are good to go. It has fixed sights front and rear, and a slide safety on the right side of the receiver. It is metal, painted black; I think there is a part missing on the barrel that would make it more secure after cocking and returning it to the receiver, something like a spring button. Anyone know anything about this specimen?

Is this a western style pistol you are talking about? When were they made?
