Dag Evert's "American Classic"

As mentioned on the forum, heres a picture I took some time back, with natural winter daylight.
A 2100, and a 1377, both guns have been recrowned, and had their trigger parts shimmed for play,
contact surfaces stoned, and trigger springs somewhat reduced within safe limits.
The 2100 has had its barrel shimmed with tape to remove play.
Both guns give great accuracy for the money if they are given good pellets!
The combination of pellets and guns in the picture represents something close to my boyhood dreams:-)

Response to Glenn........ you mean these things actually shoot?..............

I have all new Cothran Stainless parts for the final version. This particular gun is a prototype (mock up) based on a 2240 and weighs in at exacly 4 pounds and is 32" in length. The tube and breech (old screw location) are polished steel with a stainless bolt and handle made from parts of an old microphone stand. The barrel is a 14" Crosman (.177 cal) with new crown/leade. I don't think I'm going to use a barrel band since the Cothran Breech has two set screws for the barrel. With a Bruce Cox CLPS (can't leak port seal) the fit of the breech to the tube is excellent even using the new screw location. The wire stock and LDC are 6061 T6 Aluminum to help keep the weight down.

The valve is stock and the adjuster for the stock hammer spring is built into the shoulder stock. As configured it shoots Match Wadcutters from a low of about 600 to a high of about 620 fps - CPLs a little slower. The grip frame is factory (two screw) with a careful filing/sanding/polishing/buffing. The trigger and safety are from Cothran and this trigger is sweet.

I have a nice piece of highly figured Maple for the new stock/grips. That way the final version will have the same color, grain and figure characteristics.
