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 I think the Giffard co2 rifle was one of the prettiest there was

There are VERY few airgun stocks, custom or factory, that come anywhere close to the style of the classics LD mentions.

Part of that is the high sight line issue I mentioned..all the older guns were iron sighted, and not tall in the metal the way most modern gas guns are. It's very hard to get a good cheek weld on a scoped sheridan, especially if you have a thin face, as an example.

Some of Coccorans stocks work for me, but tend to be a little too rococo, James Linthicum had a few nice, clean, classic designs.
