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.

Response to 10 months in... (long)

it's going to need a barrel. i'm going to fab up a single shot tray out of wood. the magazine might work well and all but i would likely shoot it more single shot.
it is a substantial piece and more in line with a mini carbine setup. i am going to shoot it without the butt stock and with a large rifle scope so either a taco hold, or shot across folded arms. i'm a rifle guy so will be happy with a midget rifle.
i want a brit style gun and would have been happy to get the full sized marauder rifle but the pistol seems to shoot more naturally in the non FAC power levels. the whole thing about this piece has me going, it's a pistol sort of but more of a carbine and suited to shoot at 10-15 fpe. it could make a nice stealth piece that could be carried in a pack and allow some discreet sniping while on walks where tramping around with a rifle on a sling might raise eyebrows.
i might get extraordinarily lucky and get a great barrel but sort of doubt it will happen. i'd be willing to pop for an l/w but wonder if a cut down marauder rifle barrel or something would also work. crosman has done something very strange and mysterious with these barrels and it may be the way they have choked them. ?

small caliber joy
