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.

Response to Make a new barrel for my 760

A barrel for the Crosman 1760 can be machined to work in a 760. I bought one from Mountain Air custom airguns several years ago for my customized 760. I read somewhere that 1760 barrels are getting harder to come by from Crosman, but a .177 Discovery barrel is basically the same thing and it's even notched like a 760 barrel for the rear sight.
My 760 is one of the newer ones with the 5 round pellet magazine (or clip as they call it). Makes it a lot easier to load with a scope on the gun.

On the other hand....

You might try looking for an older Crosman 66. I picked up one from the 80's for $20 at a flea market a couple of years ago (metal receiver) and it was almost like new. 66's had a rifled barrel since they first came out until just recently. Mine's deadly accurate with Destroyer pellets. Little longer length of pull too.

I plink, therefore I am.
