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:-)

The most powerful gun I have ever built.

Barrel is 14" with a 13" stainless air tube.

The valve was located 1/2" farther from the end then the normal Crosman location, so the hammer stroke is a full 1/2" longer.

The Disco valve was highly modified in pretty much every way possible.

The spring is .041 and 1 1/2 longer then the stock Discovery spring.
Has a Don Cothran rear cocking kit, with my own custom hammer.
The frame is phase 3 with an adaptation of the PPG phase 2 drop sear system.

The port seal is 5/16 poly.Surprised me with this power, as I had been using 3/8 poly tube for big bores....but the thin wall of this 9mm barrel prevented it's use.

I credit most of the huge power to the hammer / spring system, it really opens that valve and keeps it open more than long enough.
I think this gun could use a lot higher starting fill pressure, but I am limited to a hand pump...........scuba tank some day !

Shot string with 77.8 grain eugin and 3200 psi fill is :
Shot 1. 685 =81 FPE
shot 2. 630 =68 FPE
shot 3. 597 =61 FPE
shot 4. 465 =37 FPE


YES, THIS IS FOR TO FILL A CURRENT ORDER....before you guys who are waiting on a 9mm start emailing me.....the one who this is for will be contacted tomorrow with a tracking number.
