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:-)

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.
