Dag Evert's "American Classic"

As mentioned on the forum, heres a picture I took some time back, with natural winter daylight. A 2100, and a 1377, both guns have been recrowned, and had their trigger parts shimmed for play, contact surfaces stoned, and trigger springs somewhat reduced within safe limits. The 2100 has had its barrel shimmed with tape to remove play.
Both guns give great accuracy for the money if they are given good pellets!
The combination of pellets and guns in the picture represents something close to my boyhood dreams:-)

Response to becuase the slotting lowered the center line

Let me see if my cell phone can do a better pic, or pics...

I assume the Crosman intermounts will now work since the barrel is 7/16" diamater now. Did have a set, but traded them off a while back...

Be right back!

Notice the end plug. There is a slight radius removed equal to that of the tube. The removed portion is only as thick as the lip on the plug.

You can see my sweet solder job! Yeah, I am self centered on it! My first attempt at soldering on a Benji and it went too well!! You will also notice how the added tubes mate up evenly and centered on the breech taper.

I measured all the tubes (diameters), even the pump tube, then crunched the math as to how much the tube will need to be removed each time a tube was added, as the barrel got thicker by the layers.

My only question is if the head annealed the metal or not (?). Next, it will be media blasted then a nice coat of gray (or grey) appliance epoxy for that parkerized look. Any better ideas on paint?
