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.

Not daft at all. In fact you're absolutely right - springers will burn oil.

Response to Pumping oil into the port of a springer causes dieseling..

But they do it - not because the air in a springer's compression chamber is compressed to high density (actually the compression ratio of a typical springer is only about 40:1 - much less than a PCP charge at about 200:1) - but because it's hot - about 2000oF.
