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:-)

120psi propane wouldn't burn at all, Rob - too little oxygen.

Response to iirc the compressed pressure of propane is 120psi

If you're old enough to remember cars with carburetors, then you know about "flooding" an engine with gas. Too much fuel (i.e., too "rich" a mixture) will put the fire out.

The same principle applies to all fuels that depend on an external oxidizer - propane too.

So if you tried to mix 120psia (i.e., 8 bar) propane with 14.5psia (i.e., 1 bar) air, you wouldn't get more pressure. You'd get no combustion at all.
