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 more or less anticipated the issues

...are choked, so they did try something different. But the bore is rough and a bit over size.

Seems like 3 choices:

A Marauder barrel could be made to work, but would lose the choke when shortened. that may not be bad, have had several non-choked barrels shoot well.

Custom LW barrel.

Mod the bolt to carry an O-ring and use a standard Crosman barrel (or after market 22XX barrel).

Of the three, belive I'll eventually go with the o-ringed bolt and probably a 5mm LW barrel.
