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.

Just retain the valve and you're good to go....

Response to i think you're right about that

.... because the HiPac unit contains the pressure, the force pushing the valve rearward would be based on the area INSIDE the valve, not the outside diameter of the valve.

If you ignore the instructions and over tighten the unit into the tube, can exert screw snapping pressure much greater than any reasonable air pressure could manage. With the seals given in the conversion, firm hand pressure has sealed 2.8K just fine (although that was just an experiment... my two are set to run right at 140bar.

IF they don't seal by hand pressure, much better to investigate why rather than reaching for a wrench.
