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.
I myself do not have a Marlin because of the reports you speak of, but I did once have a Red Ryder. Notice the word - DID. It's gone now, in the trash because 10 shot groups looked like shotgun patterns. I believe it is the luck of the draw on some BB guns. Combine that with offhand shooting and other factors and anything can happen. You got a good one, and you obviously can shoot well, the results speak for themselves. In Daisy's defense, I have a few of their vintage BB guns that were made for target shooting, the 99 series (99, 299, 499) the Marlin wouldn't stand a chance in a head to head competition. But then again - that is comparing apples and oranges. I'd like to see several (of any brand) BB gun from different production lots clamped in a vice and shot for accuracy. Just to see what would really happen.
