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.

New (Crosman forum) member, 1377 story

I probably should have started with a backpacker instead, but my thoughts were maybe one day try my hand at pistol competition.

My bad shoulders had other ideas... especially after mildly modding my 1377 with a steel breech, the weight was too much for my shoulder(s). Bursitis caused stretched tendons, i.e. the one that holds up the arm... so it's too difficult to hold the pistol one-handed anymore.

Abandoning my plan for pistol competition, I've placed orders for some parts to make the pistol easier to shoot. I'll never give up! The list includes:
1399 shoulder stock
11.25" barrel/ 6.5" shroud
UTG/Leapers 4X32, adjustable objective bug buster scope

I think this is going to be a fun little gun once it's done, but I think it's going to look better in a more-tactical-all-black look. I haven't decided if I want to dye/paint the pump arm grip or get the backpacker grip for it. Does dyeing really work that well? I've searched & searched, and seen good recommendations on the process, but curious about the extreme longevity of the dye on the plastic.

The most difficult decision was barrel length. I kept thinking I wanted to keep it pretty short, and the shroud will butt-up against the end of the gun with the barrel length I ordered. I suppose if I want a bit more length later on it's easy enough to swap barrels...
