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

Response to What would that be equivilant to?

..rifling which made one turn in 12 inches, the rpm would be 48000.

A conventional Dremel moto Tool has a shaft rotation of around 35000rpm.

But a question to the scientifically minded.

To illustrate precession and nutation, we are often directed to observe the gyrating antics of a childs top as it spins about it's axis.

So the question is, would the childs top go into the precession and nutation mode if the top were perfectly ballanced mass-wise and axis-wise?
