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.

I think your experiment shows the air in the headspace contributes to power

Response to Hi Walter, the piston extending after the shot (does) add power,

but inconclusive WRT flex of the system adding power.
In that 2004 the change in piston length will likely be in the order of 0.010" so doubt it is the source of power you lost.
Cool example of the idea if your idea is correct though happy.gif

Walter....
