Scot Laughlin's Custom All Weather 2260

2260 with short crosman receiver atop a mini riser made from aluminum tube. Barrel is a 2200 soda straw
tensioned inside a titanium golf club shaft. Three screw mod to the trigger, bulk co2, SSP 250 rear cocking
striker assembly. Factory stock, reshaped, bedliner finish and stick on cheek piece. The idea was a weather
resistant light hunter for rainy days.
I've got a Cothran stainless receiver and gas tube waiting for me to get back to this one.

Response to 13.1 C.I Tank on AS2250

Also, I found that if you stay 1400PSI or below, you can get away with the factory hammer spring, or a 2289 spring, to keep a decent trigger pull, and still squeeze a good bit out of it with the 14" barrel. If you don't mind stepping up to an 18 or even a 24" barrel, then you can get even more from the platform at that pressure level. I mistakenly pushed mine up to 1600PSI, and needed the disco spring, which then convinced me to get the AoA adjustable two stage sear to get the trigger back to where I wanted. The closed valve system will respond well from 800 PSI (Paintball tank) to 1400 PSI without much extra needed. The 1000 -1250 range will easily get you into the solid 650 plus mark, for almost 100 shots, with very low SD. Just some of the little things I found along the way. It was great fun to build, and I have enjoyed it greatly. P.S. when you call Crosman for parts, pick up a couple of sets of o-rings, and use divers silicone grease on them, the leaks will disappear quickly.

Let me know if I can help out anywhere, did a lot of learning, mistakes, and finally found my way to what I wanted out of this platform with help from some of the regulars. I thank all who provided insight, and advise.

The previous posters were 100% correct, just use a hacksaw to trim the bump from the back of the factory stock, and it fits right back on.
