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.

Sounds like you need to spin the seal

Response to 1377c - Was Leaking Down, now it isn't(sort of), does this make sense?!?!?

Acetal is a hard seal material so it's not forgiving of eccentricity. Nothing's to say
that either the valve seat or seal are perfectly concentric. It's common practice to
apply some lapping paste and spin the seal on the seat (e.g. with drill).
To make your own lapping paste, scrape some of that 1200 grit off with a blade and mix
with cutting oil or other.
