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 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.
