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 to quibble, but the Disco's screws are actually #8-32.

Response to If you had one of these, it would be easy to win the bet stop

Their ultimate tensile (shear is of course less) strength is probably about 800# each for a total for the three of ~2400#, meaning the valve might be expected to let go and become a projectile at about 5500 to 6000psi.

That gives a safety factor of ~2.8 for the Disco's rated 2000psi MWP fill. Just about right, IMHO.
