but looks can be deceiving.
Lets see. over the last month or so I've tweaked the AS2250 quite a bit.
1st: Upped the pressure behind the pellet to 1800psi.
2nd: Beefed up the hammer spring.
3rd: Made a 1018 steel hollow probe bolt and cocking lever.
4th: Put anti-friction rings on the striker.
5th: Beefed up all seals.
6th: Made a metal transfer tube.
7th: Made a Delrin poppet.
8Th: Made a 12" shroud.
9Th: Had Leupold change the scope parallax from 60yrds to 25yrds.
10th:Changed the scope rings to a medium from a low.
11th:Waiting for a Pacific Pelletguns two stage trigger to arrive.
End result, went from 685fps w/25.4gr pellet to 790fps with the same 25.4gr pellet. 35.2fpe! Not a leak to be found anywhere.
Very pleased with how everything turned out. Raising the optic really helped with allowing for a much improved cheek weld. Groupings are good now but should be great after the new trigger goes in.
Going to have to change it's name to the turkey tenderizer -at least until rabbit season opens.
