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 also do a lot of ground squirrel hunting and most of my shots are 50yds and beyond as well. When I took the p-rod out for a go I found it was too light for me! Your thinking this guy is crazy, every hunter likes a light rifle. Anyway the gun shot pretty good but I found my accuracy decreased because I was normally used to shooting a gun above 8 lbs of weight, the prod felt more like a toy gun (I only use it with the stock only...carbine mode) than a real hunter, but I will say it had enough power to do the job. I found that predators shot fairly well in the gun. I was getting excellent results with premiers and even the JSB's. I ended up adding a 17 inch barrel that really made the suckers fly! At first after adding the longer barrel I was getting about 130fps gains, but after the transfer port mod, it shot up quite a bit, I'll chrono it this weekend.
