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.
The old style (pre mag) receivers were angled front and back at the loading port to allow room for the fingers when loading pellets. There was also a groove that you could lay the pellet into that the bolt rode in. There's not a lot of "meat" in the new style receiver to allow for much reshaping without going through and making a hole to the inside.
Or just hold the pellet with long tweazers like some guys do when shooting side or under lever springers. lol
